Ohio St Blows...Again

Is anyone else tired of phony ass Ohio St getting blown out in the National Title game every year? Sure I still have some hatred for them after the horrible officiating gifted them the 2002 Championship thus preventing Miami from going back-to-back, but this is getting old man. They waltz through a weak Big Ten every year then get blown the fuck up when they play real teams.

There is a lot rumblings about a playoff once the Fox four-year $320M contract ends so hopefully it gets done. The U of Georgia President is hoping for an eight team playoff while the SEC and ACC commissioners talk of a Plus One System which would seed the top four teams after the bowl games. All the major conference seem open to talking about change except of course the Pac 10 and Big 10 who don't want any tampering with their beloved Rose Bowl.(Witness sorry Big Ten team Illinois in this years Rose Bowl instead of a USC-Georgia match-up.)

We need change. College football is the only sport in the world where the National Championship is not decided in a playoff. What a freaking joke that sports writers and coaches vote for what I deem a mythical National Champion. Bowl games suck balls usually so let's get an atmosphere similar to March Madness (similar as nothing can compare to March Madness). Schools and TV still get their money and the fans will be happy and the National Champion will be decided on the field where it belongs.

Woot Woot, we did a four way chop on the MATH last night. It was late, everyone seemed bored of pushing chips back and forth once we got in the money, so we each got an even $150. Six-handed is a nice change of pace since I rarely play it, so it's fun to release that inner donkey and broaden the ranges, which in a donkament means any two cards.

Fred, also known as Two Black Aces finally joined all use ghey bloggers and has a blog up and running. He's kicked major ass in the donkaments now you can go read about him steamrolling us donks.

For a fabulous read on the upcoming NFL playoff games go check out this bit of brilliance from BWoP. That is of course after you watch the View and Days of Lives. Funny stuff.

Plenty of goodies in store for tomorrow as I'm going to bust out my mad writing skillz and take you all down a path of self destruction which was my previous life. I'm going to try and do a weekly post dedicated to my life in the early 90s and my downward spiral into addiction. Should be interesting bringing up some long faded memories.

Tomorrow we should have the official announcement of Miami Don Radio since Jacksonville beat the Steelers and we now get to hijack Buddy's show for four weeks. Listen in tomorrow night for the details.

Lastly don't forget tonight is "Donkey's with Wood" as bloggers get to see four, yes four cards, as the Skill Series brings us PLO. Don't forget there are no bad beat stories in Oma-draw boys and girls. Did you hear that Waffles and Bayne?

I will not be denied!

If I get 1 outed I get to bitch

If someone draws to 2 pair with 1 card to come on a board with straight or flush possibilities I get to rant.

I for one cannot wait for your stories of addiction from the early 90s. I was also stoned pretty much all through that time but here's hoping your stories are better than mine.

See you tonight in da Skilllllz. PLO rawks.

Agreed regarding OSU (my take here: http://ccexplore.blogspot.com/2008/01/bcs-championship-report-out.html)

The problem with the Rose Bowl was that neither team should have been there. Illinois was not good enough but had the late-season run, and USC was too good, but ended up there due to those losses earlier in the season.

Maybe someday the NCAA will actually be able to have a real champion AND still swim in money. With a turd like Myles Brand leading the way, however, I lack hope.
