We were unfortunate last night not to witness the Nebraska and Missouri game. Though the radio was on, we couldn’t get a good grasp of just how muddy and mucky it was to play. 2-0 at halftime is a wacky score. But we didn’t expect Missouri to choke away the game and 27 points in the fourth quarter. What did we find out? Nebraska has the fast track to the Big 12 North title. Missouri is much like their new quarterback Blaine Gabbert: young, inexperienced, talented, but not yet ready. The Tigers did reload this year, but the bullet jammed up a bit last night. Let’s jam on to this week’s Pick It and Stick It:
Believe it or not, I’m a big supporter of the current BCS system. Anymore I see major complaints coming from sports writers who lack the creativity to come up with something compelling. Either that or they think they control college football like baseball writers. At any rate, the major beef from them nowadays comes in the form of mid-conference teams not getting a fair shot. You see Utah and Boise State lifted up high as a examples that the system doesn’t work. I’m not so sure about that but there is something that’s happening this week that is making me take a second look.
