I’m pretty excited about college football starting. Thursday can’t come fast enough for me. Not a huge fan of pro football, though.

need to know before they try to write about guns. There are lots of gems in this article, but the one that makes me laugh hardest is:
Perhaps the most egregious example of this came from someone who knew better: the Brady Campaign’s president, Paul Helmke, who in Collins’s column is quoted claiming that 9mm semiautomatics are “not suited for hunting or personal protection” and that “what it’s good for is killing and injuring a lot of people quickly.” If 9mm Glocks aren’t suited for protecting oneself and others, someone should tell the nation’s police departments, many of which use them — and many more of which use .40-caliber Glocks, which are similar but slightly more powerful.
The idea that the Glock 19 is not GREAT for self-defense is utterly laughable. This guy clearly either a) doesn’t know what the crap he is talking about or b) is just a shill. Well, it might be c) both. But the Glock 19 is one of the best carry weapons EVER. When I went looking for a defense weapons, after a TON of research I realized that the Glock 19 was the best option (though that was several years ago and the XDs–very much like Glocks-are great, too. You can shoot “hot” loads out of the 19 that are very close to the .45 in terms of ballistics. And I don’t like the .40 with it’s “snap.”)
Sorry, this guy is a moron. He is completely ignorant or just a hack. In either case, no thinking person should take what he says as the truth. Yes, of course it was from the NY Times–where else do you see such stupidity and mindless lefty bleating? Sheesh! <shakes head>
and I’m glad. It’s not that I’m an Auburn fan–I don’t even know where Auburn is. It’s that I love to see the Ducks lose. The Ducks have really made me an Oregon fan. Oregon State Beavers.
Non-cartel (that is, non-BC$) teams have played BC$ teams twice this bowl season. The non-cartel teams won both times. Gee, I wonder what would happen if we had a playoff? I have a solution, but even BC$ critics shy away from it. It would work and it would be good, but the “Can I have some more, sir?” attitude runs deep. I just keep waiting for the B$U fans and others to say, “Thank you, sir, may I have another?”
Honestly, what we have now is a sick joke. It’s only because of the crass fat cats that we have such a ludicrous system.
Tonight it’s middle Tennessee State against Miami of Ohio. Wow. Of course, it IS the execrable GoDaddy.com bowl, but my complaints against GoDaddy will be for another day.
Maybe if we had a PLAYOFF we could have actual good games on. Instead we get THIS.
What is that 4 for 4 in bowl games where the non-BCS team beat the BCS team? (correction: 4 and 1. HI was pathetic and lost their game) Tell me again, WHY DON’T WE HAVE A PLAYOFF??!!
Actually, Wisconsin put up more of a fight than I expected. When you’re part of the pampered class, you might not be all that tough. Sorry, but the MWC teams would beat almost all of the cartel teams.
this year. Horrid. But why?
Well, the main and overriding reason is because we don’t have a playoff. And why don’t we? Because the stupid fat cats (and their lackeys) can’t tolerate the idea of a “non-BCS” team beating one of their precious BCS toadies. So a combination of fear and greed have made it so we have crappy games this year. Nice. Thank you, sir, may I have another?
The idea that BCS teams are better than non-BCS teams is laughable. Prove it! That’s a bunch of crap! When non-BCS has played BCS, they have won, a lot. Bowl games, in particular. And yes, Texas looks quite good, but we need to factor in that for every Texas there are five Dukes. I mean, look at most of the PAC-10! What a soft bunch! So tell me again why Duke is a “have” and New Mexico is a “have not?” Why is Baylor a “have” and BSU a “have not?” Sorry, it’s grossly unfair, and I object. I will follow my Alma Mater, but the truth is that now I don’t give a rat’s patoot about college football. It is a rigged deal from the start.
A little fairness would be nice.
joke. Why oh why do we not have a playoff? Oh yeah, because the fat cats want to keep all the money to themselves and they can’t stomach the idea of a “Cinderella” team winning over their favored teams. They don’t care about us fans, and that’s why we have such a crappy slate of bowls.
