Football Bowl Games

The bowl games are now set and as usual they're screwed up. LSU with two losses is going to play for the National Championship. I don't know why they call it the BCS, it seems to me that a more descriptive name would be "Play the Winner of of the SEC" series. I am constantly amazed that the sportscasters are so in love with the South East Conference. LSU just lost a game to an unranked team, so how can they still be ranked #2 in the nation? Hawaii is unbeaten, but because they have a weak schedule???? they are denied a shot at the national title. Having watched them play I'm pretty sure they would beat LSU going away. LSU played only a few teams that were ranked in the top 25 and lost to one of them. Oh yeah, Oklahoma is ranked above Kansas even though they lost more games than Kansas. The reasoning, Oklahoma beat Missouri who beat Kansas, so Oklahoma gets the higher ranking. So, how about Arkansas who beat LSU? Shouldn't Arkansas be ranked #2? Let's see, last year they threw a bone to undefeated Boise State and let them play Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl thinking that Oklahoma would show the boys from Idaho how to play football. Wrong! I think that Georgia better hang on when they play Hawaii.
