ESPN: C’Mon Man!

There are 24 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) (Division I-AA) teams that will play for a national championship. The champion in this division is actually decided on the field. The games start this Saturday, November 30, and the championship game is set for January 4.

The Big Sky Conference has four teams in playoffs: Eastern Washington, Northern Arizona, Montana, and Southern Utah.

That was the good news.

It looks like most of games are scheduled to be carried on ESPN3, which severely limits who can view the games. Here in Montana, my cable companies (Bresnan – Optimum – Charter) have changed so much who knows if I can even access ESPN3.

It looks like major college football is heading to another train wreck this season with four teams being undefeated at this time: 1. Oregon, 2. Auburn, 3. TCU, and 4. Boise State.

I won’t even get into the one-loss teams that had one bad game and may be playing some of their best football late in the season.

Oregon has three games left (one against a ranked team). Auburn has two games remaining (one against a ranked team) plus the SEC Championship game. TCU has two games left (none against a ranked team), and Boise State has four games left (one against a ranked team).

If there are more than two undefeated teams left, then we have a problem. My prediction is that we will have three undefeated teams going into the Bowl season and one will be left out of actually playing for a National Championship. (more…)

It’s a lot more fun to write about sports than politics. So it’s time to take a time-out from politics and talk about football!

The Gunslinger:

In what would have made a great western movie, the game between the Vikings and the Packers would have been an instant classic. (more…)
