BCS craziness

Three things I ran across.

BCS Tickets Available, But Prices May Bowl You Over

Hundreds of tickets remain available through online brokers for the Bowl Championship Series title game in Miami, with prices ranging from $578 to $3,685 on three Web sites surveyed this afternoon.

From the St. Petersburg Times via AP

Utah’s attorney general is investigating the Bowl Championship Series for a possible violation of federal antitrust laws after an undefeated Utes team was left out of the national title game for the second time in five years.

Attorney General Mark Shurtleff contends the BCS unfairly puts schools like Utah, which is a member of a conference without an automatic bid to the lucrative bowl games, at a competitive and financial disadvantage.

What puts schools like Utah at a disadvantage is playing in a conference that includes football stalwarts like UNLV, SD State, and Wyoming.

Nice to see the Utah AG has this time on his hands.

Not technically over the BCS, but it’s close enough.

Logan Tebow Bradley was born Tuesday morning at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater.

His father, Tom Bradley, is a big fan of the Florida Gators. He told WTSP-TV he wanted to honor the quarterback and decided to give his newborn son the middle name Tebow. Plus, he said, it could be a sign of a third national championship for the team.[Emphasis mine]

At least it’s his middle name.

  1. Shouldn’t the NCAA’s answer to the Utah AG be to force Utah into the Big 8 or PAC-10? See how they do when they’re playing Oklahoma and Texas back-to-back instead of BYU and TCU.

  2. Heh. That would work.

  3. Everybody goes 0-2 playing OU and UT back-to-back. Almost everybody, anyway. I suspect they’d do OK year-in and year-out in the Big 12 or the Pac 10. Of course they wouldn’t go 13-0 every year, but they’d get to play Baylor, Iowa State, Washington State, and Arizona every year, just like USC, UT, and OU.

    They’d probably be about like Texas Tech or UCLA–8-4 or 9-3 most years with the occasional challenge for a conference title.

    I hope the AP voters give it to the Utes this year.

  4. I hope they finally go to a playoff.

    So maybe I do hope they give it to the Utes.
