In sports anyway. It's college football postseason time again. Proving yet again that it is the professional wrestling of college sports, the ten spots in the BCS games went to teams #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #7, #8, #9, #10, and #13 in the BCS's own standings. Missouri, of course, was the unlucky #6 (who beat #8 and #13 head to head), but the absurdities certainly don't end there. In fact, my grudge really has nothing to do with Missouri, but with the fact that this sort of thing happens every year.
If college football is going to continue to refuse a playoff system similar to what all other real sports employ, the least they could do is up the entertainment value by letting the players use the occasional folding chair.
