Wetzel again blasts the BCS for some fuzzy math

    Interesting read on the crooked numbers the BCS computers spit out.

    One line that stuck out: "In late October, Kenneth Massey’s rankings had Arizona Western, a community college, 30th overall."

    That who he sees most, and to him, they are the 30th best team in the nation. Check out their clutch stats. [/cheapshot]

    Wetzel is always on point with his BCS banter.

    No wonder Mike Stoops and Dennis Erickson got kicked to the curb.

    It's his baby and he does make solid points, and he's got a book to sell I guess, but Jesus Christ. He's starting to sound like a whiny bitch at this point.

    Yeah, but if it's not Wetzel it would just be someone else. With he and Charles Robinson at Yahoo, they are expected to bitch about the BCS. I am glad they back it up with facts and not just rumors.

    Agreed. I read every Wetzel BCS bash as an ad for his book.

    Yeah. I mean, he DOES make valid points. He knows this shit inside and out. But after you've heard the same thing a million times....

    Haven't read it. Don't know about No. 30.

    Does anyone think the wrong two teams are 1-2?

    This ... and I agree with nearly everything Wetzel writes on the topic. But he's become shrill.

    I just love how it's never mentioned that the BCS is still better than any system we ever had before, as far as determining a national champion.

    But yes, reading the same BCS bashing over and over . . . sports columnists all over the country use it as their standard Fall midweek filler column.

    A fart in the wind compared to the galactic-industrial-strength-caucophonic-whiny-bitch-apologia for the BCS that is ESPN.
