The BCS is as Simple as A Stop Light. The Computer Knows What's Best

With Tony Pike out... who cares the Bearcats are just as good with their back up!  In Cincinnati the Bearcats are reeking havoc in the Big East!  Honestly, their only real test this year was when they beat the 21st ranked at that time South Florida.  But, keep in mind that the South Florida Bulls beat Florida State of the ACC who beat BYU who beat The University of Oklahoma who lost by only three points to the third ranked Texas.  So, in a round about BCS way the Bearcats are totally legit.  If these guys win out as well as Texas and Iowa then we'll have some major argumentation over who is going to play the SEC Champ for the National Title.  If Texas goes undefeated in the Big 12 then only ranked teams that they beat were at the time 20th OU and this week the 14th Oklahoma State.  If Iowa wins out then there only ranked wins would be at that time the 5th ranked Penn State and in the upcoming weeks 17th ranked Ohio State.  As previously mentioned the Bearcats have already beat one ranked team they also have the current 21st ranked West Virginia and the 15th ranked Pittsburgh coming up on their schedule.  So, as of right now if nothing changes in the BCS (yeah right) then the Bearcats of Cincinnati will have defeated more ranked teams then Texas and Iowa.  But, Penn State was ranked in the top 5 and lost by 11 points.  To be honest with you this is ridiculous to sit here and speculate over who is more deserving to play Bama or the Gators in the National Championship game.  And who's to say that they deserve to be crowned an automatic National Title Bid?  The only ranked wins that Florida has was over then the 4th ranked LSU and that was only by ten points.  If nothing changes the only other ranked opponent is South Carolina at 22.  Alabama on the other hand will have 4 top 25 ranked wins.  Good for them : ) BCS speaking does that mean that technically that Alabama is the best team in the NCAA? No, thank goodness for a SEC championship game to weed out who will be going on to the National Championship Game.  According to this BCS theory we really don't need a championship game... Right?  We know who will win because of the strength of the schedule and nevermind the fact that teams get better as the season goes on.  And that sports fan's is reason one thousand three hundred fifty seven of why we need a play off system.    

PS. If your wondering why I didn't throw in Boise State or TCU in the mix with the other undefeated teams the answer is simple they're really not apart of the NCAA

Best of Luck Bradford

Well, Sam Bradford is going to get the season ending sugary necessary to get him ready for the 2010 NFL Draft.  Sam was the projected number one over all pick last year, and this year we got Colt McCoy, Jimmy Clausen, Tim Tebow, and I am not sure but I think that tall fellow out of Cincinnati Tony Pike is a Sr. and he's a stud as well.  So, who's worried about spending a lot of monies on a stud QB who has basically had to set out his redshirt Junior year.  I am sure that Slinging Sammy will be just fine in the NFL.  He probably wont be the number one overall pick or even the first quarterback but he's still the man and will probably still be a first rounder.  We'll miss you Sam.  Sam Bradford has done more for the Oklahoma Sooners in the 21st Century save Bob Stoops only then any other man within the organization.

Can We Have Two BCS BUSTERS This Season?

I believe the answer is no. So, if I am right and only one Non-BCS school is invited then how is the BCS going to determine who is more deserving?  We have Boise State who beat Oregon 19 to 8 and the Ducks are currently the number one team in the Pac-10.  We have TCU who have played two BCS schools who are having less then good years, although Clemson did just defeat the number 10 ranked Miami, and the Hornedfrogs just beat the number 16th ranked BYU.  So, by beating a number 16th ranked team does that justify the number 8th ranked TCU jumping over #7 Iowa, #6USC, #5 Cincinnati, and number 4 Boise? Now is it fair for the BCS to drop Boise to a lower ranking the TCU?  The only ranked team that Boise has beat was the Mighty Ducks who as previously mentioned is leading the Pac-10 and currently ranked #11 in the nation and the only ranked team that TCU has beat was the 16th ranked Stormin' Mormons in Provo and two un-ranked BCS schools.  So, how is the BCS algorithms going to determine who is more deserving of the higher ranking and a prestigious bowl bid?  Clearly, if TCU beats the number 18 Utah then there are two ranked win's for TCU as opposed to the one ranked win Boise has over Oregon.  But, if Oregon wins the Pac-10 then shouldn't that carry some weight seeing how BYU and Utah aren't apart of a BCS Conference?  This is CRAZYNESS and all of this can be fixed by a simple play off to determine a true National Champion.  Every game will still count because everyone will be fighting for a play off spot.  Anyways, last year was fun talking about the three way tie in the Big 12 and I hope that both TCU and Boise State continue to give logical reasons as to why they deserve a BCS Bowl.  And, I am sure that the NCAA Football Program will continue to always give us examples of why this current system doesn't work like it was promised "to give us a true National Champion."  (Not that I am saying that any mid-majors can actually be The National Champion, but it's nice to atleast give them the occasional shot.)

Arkansas Shouldn't be Winning!

So, with the number one ranked Florida Gators on the verge of loosing its first game of the season to the unranked Arkansas Razorbacks it was time for the twelfth man to step up and take charge.  No, Texas A&M were not talking about the fan's but the brave men who wear Black and White.  Yes, thank you Mr. Referee for making it possible for Tim Tebow to engineer a comeback victory in Gainesville.  You are probably thinking "Wayne Bass you talk crazy." Wayne Bass only talks the truth.

Exhibit A-With about eleven minutes in the third quarter with the score Hoggs 10 Gators 3 it was 4 and 22 and the Gators decide to go for the field goal.  This would be a personal best for Calab Sturgis at 51 yards out, shattering his old record of 37 yards.  The play clock runs out and about a second latter he kicks a field goal making a 4 point game.

Exhibit B-An extremely controversial defensive pass interference in the fourth quarter.

Now I know that you are probably thinking bad calls are just apart of the game it happens in every game no matter the sport, and a bad call alot of the time depends on what color your wearing.  I can't agree with you more, but when that unsportsman like conduct was called in the fourth which the SEC said in not so many words a being a bogus call.  Anyways, that call put the Gators on the 10 yard line and made it first and ten I really couldn't help but "think give me a break."  That set up the tying score.  Whatever, I feel that Fayetteville got screwed, but it happens.  So, Alabama jumps ahead of Florida in the AP Polls, but who cares what the AP Polls have to say.

Oh man this has been major league crappy weekend for Wayne Bass!   Number one Texas caught the break of a life time by getting Landry Jones instead of Sam Bradford.  Number two latter that night I went to pick up my date and she informs me that she can't go because her best friend from Provo is up and therefore can't go...She sent me an e-mail earlier.  And, number three I am getting my butt kicked in Fantasy Football by the Birdman him self Big Dan Bird.

So, to make me feel better I thought about things that I could look up, like Oklahoma History and what not, but instead I stumbled onto these little gems.  Enjoy!

A Sooner fan, a Univ of Texas fan and a Nebraska fan were all in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled crate of booze. All of a sudden the Saudi police rushed in and arrested them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offense in Saudi Arabia, 20 lashes each of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheik suddenly said, "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping." 
The Nebraska fan was first in line, so he thought about this for a while and then said, "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The Nebraska fan had to be carried away bleeding and weak with pain when the punishment was done. 
The Texas fan was next up, and after watching the scene, said "All Right! I wish for zero whippings, and his wish was granted.  
The Sooner fan was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheik turned to him and said, "You support the greatest team in the world, your alumni has some of the best and most loyal football fans in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!" 
"Thanks, your most Royal highness," the Sooner fan replies. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes." 
"Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave," the Sheik says with an admiring look on his face. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish? What is it to be?" the Sheik asks. 
"Tie the Texas fan to my back." 

Two boys are playing football at this park in a small town in Oklahoma when one of the boys is suddenly attacked by a crazed Rottweiler. Thinking quickly, the other boy takes a stick and shoves it under the dog's collar, twists it, and breaks the dog's neck, thus saving his friend. 
A local sports reporter who was strolling by sees the incident and rushes over to interview the boy. He tells the boy he's going to write the story and says, "I'll title it '
Young Sooner Fan Saves Friend From Vicious Animal'". 
"But I'm not a Sooner fan", the little hero replies. 
"Sorry, since we're in Oklahoma, I just assumed you were", says the reporter.  Ok I'll title it 
'OK State Fan Rescues Friend From Horrific Attack' sound?" 
"I'm not an OSU fan either", the boy says. 
Reporter asks, you do like football don't you boy? 
The boy's reply was "yes sir its just that I'm only visiting my cousin, I'm a Texas Longhorn fan, they're just the best!" The reporter smiles, and the next day the paper read: "Little Longhorn Bastard From Texas Kills Beloved Family Pet". 

A first grade teacher in Austin, Tx, explains to her class that she is a Longhorn fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they, too, are Longhorn fans. Everyone in the class raises their hand except one little girl... 
The teacher looks at the girl with surprise and says, " Janie, why didn't you raise your hand?" 
"Because I'm not a Longhorn fan " she replied. The teacher, still shocked, asked "Well, if you are not a Longhorn fan, then who are you a fan of?" 
"I am a Sooner fan," Janie replied. The teacher could not believe her ears. "Janie, WHY are you a Sooner fan?" 
"Because my Mom is a Sooner fan, my Dad is a Sooner fan, so I am a Sooner fan also." 
"Well" said the teacher, in an obviously annoyed tone, "that is no reason for you to be a Sooner fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all the time. What if your Mom was a snotty arrogant loud mouth jerk and your Dad was a snotty arrogant loud mouth jerk, what would you be then?" 
"Then" Janie smiled,"We'd all be Longhorn fans I guess."

Albert Einstein goes to a party. He introduces himself to a lady and says, "Hi, I'm Albert Einstein. What's you're IQ?".........."240," she says. "Great, we can discuss the mysteries of the universe and other things. We have a lot we can talk about " he replies. Later he is talking with a man and says, "Hi, I'm Albert Einstein. What's you're IQ?"......."145," he replies. "Great, we can talk about thermodynamics," says Albert. Later he is talking to another gentleman and says, "Hi, I'm Albert Einstein. What's you're IQ?........"43," the man manages to say. Einstein gets a puzzled look on his face for a minute then says, "How about them Longhorns?"

If Blount why not Bryant?

Ok I am sure that everyone who saw the Boise Oregon game on September 3rd and saw the Oregon Running Back hit that number 94 player from Boise after the game.  Ok, first of all I really don't think it was a cheap shot... I think that number 94 turned as Blount was winding up, or say I don't think that he was thinking oh he's not looking now I'll hit.  I think he just got pissed that that number 94 wised off.  Then he flips out of what looked like steroid rage and then after he got calmed down young fans began to taunt this clearly unstable young man and the Blount moves to attack the fans.  I feel that number 94 was planning on being able to say what ever he wanted to and then hide behind the sporstmanship shield (I'm not saying that he would run from a fist fight with Blount but he felt protected) and those fans felt that they can do whatever they want to do and hide behind the fact that they are fans just like the idiot who threw a beer at Ron Artest .  Am I trying to defend LeGarrette Blount?  No, I think he was wrong for what he did, and I would have kicked him off the team.  I am sure that you are probably thinking why am I talking about this like 5 or 6 weeks after the matter?  It's because they are probably going to let him back into play.  You know what?  I am ok with that because I am all about forgiveness and moving on, and I am not sure but I think that this is the only real black mark on his record.  He has already set out for a while and really has little to no shot at winning any post season awards.  I don't know if you remember but his name was floating around as a possible Heisman Candidate.  Anyways, the reason I started writing is because Dez Braynt has already set out for two games because he wasn't entirely truthful with the NCAA about his visit to Deion Sanders house.  If LeGarrette is going to be able to play after his post game shenanigans then let Dez Bryant play as well... I don't know I think one is way worse then the other.

Texas Passed Over Again?

So, Alabama has jumped over Texas for the number two spot behind Florida.  Why has this happened Texas has yet to lose a game?  In-fact Texas has scored 236 and Bama has only scored 222 and both teams have only allowed 75 points to be scored on them this year.  So, according to this Mythical BCS Algorithm shouldn't Texas retain their number two spot?  

No, and the reason is the same reason why Oklahoma got the Big 12 nod in the three way tie last year.  (It's because of their non-conference games were more impressive.)  Alabama in their season opener beat the now 4th ranked VT by ten points and recently beat 20th ranked Ole Miss.  Texas on the other hand really had a showing against Louisiana-Monroe, Wyoming, and UTEP.  Their two conference wins came from unranked Texas Tech and Colorado.  Keep in mind that Alabama has played lesser opponents as well, but what has caused them to jump over the Longhorns was that VT win.  

I am in no way trying to pump up the Crimson Tide because honestly I hope South Carolina upsets them and then next week I hope that Kiffin and his Volunteers put the hurt down as well.  But, I guess what I am trying to say is that the good people in Austin need to start throwing in a good team as well as the warm up teams in their non-conference play.

Don't quote me on this but...

Now, you didn't hear this from me, because I don't like to spread rumors but I've heard that Jordan Shipley and Colt McCoy are not only GAY, but they were seen at the home of Prime Time Neon Deion Sanders along with Dez Bryant of OK State.  I know this is shocking news and just a week before the Red River Shoot Out...(Dang) That is horrible timing for Mack Brown and the Longhorns, but rules are rules... "NO KICKING IT AT THE HOME OF FORMER NFL SUPERSTUDS!"  So, with the upcoming suspension of Heisman hopeful and his girlfriend the Longhorns are going to have to form a different game plan against the Sooners this year.

So, I am having a hard time sleeping, so I thought I would read some people's blogs.  I should comment more but I always feel like what I have to say is well...How do you say in english?  "dumb"  Anyways, I enjoyed reading about Thome's encounter with that Hobo, and I am interested in learning Quinn's thoughts on Bret Farve.  Anyways, as I was reading through the blogs I came to an conclusion about my own blog.  I am starting to lack variety. My blog is titled Waynes Wild World of COLLEGE FOOTBALL not Waynes special take on the SOONERS!  I've been talking about them a lot and I plan on diversifying myself more.  (One thing that bugs me about this small corner of the world is that it feels like a lot not all but a lot of people can only talk about BYU, Utah, and Boise State football and when you mention someone outside of that they look at you cross eyed.)  I DON'T WANT TO BE LIKE THAT!   There is a ton of stuff I could have been talking about like Tebow's concussion, Lane Kiffin pickin' fights with Urban Myers, Ohio State's 3 point loss to USC, USC loss to Washington, and what not, and Noter Dame's...just kidding no one wants to talk about the fighting irish.  In the future let it be known that Wayne Bass is going to talk about COLLEGE FOOTBALL and not just about my beloved Sooners.

Building Year for my Beloved Sooners!

Yes, it is true the Oklahoma Sooners went into Dolphin Stadium and lost in a 20 to 21 decision to the Miami Hurricanes of the ACC.  It has been  a rough start for the Sooners this year beginning with of the loss of the six foot six two hundred and sixty pound tight end Jermaine Gresham.  Jermaine is not only big and strong enough to block defensive ends and linebackers but he has the agility to go out split and make things happen as a wide receiver.  Last year Jermaine Gresham turned down the NFL Draft to come back for his Sr. year.  Many thought that was insane because of his first round predictions, but for reasons which are unbeknownst unto me he choose to stay and finish his Sr. year.  The season was starting with serious promise and with the passing offense centered around Gresham things seemed bright for the Sooners but just days before the season opener with the Stormin' Mormon's of BYU it was announced that Jermaine Gresham will not play for the reminder of his Sr. year.

The returning Heisman Trophy Winner Slinging Sammy Bradford who had over 4,000 passing yards and 50 TD's last year passed on being the number one over all pick in the NFL Draft and $40,000,000 to play for the Detroit Lions is currently overcoming a shoulder injury received before half time of the season opener.

Head Coach Bob Stoops has recently faced criticism stating that Bob Stoops should have pushed these young men to the Draft.  Stoops reply was that it isn't his job to make that decision his job is to educate them on the possibilities and leave it up to the players and their families to determine the best decision.  On the up side these two young men Gresham who is finishing his senior year and Bradford who is a red-shirt junior will be receiving a college degree, and who knows if they were ready for the NFL.

This is a building year for Oklahoma with 50 Freshman on a 120 man roster.  Every team has building seasons and this is the Sooners building year.  I wish the best of luck to the players, coaches, and all the brave men and women serving in the armed forces.

Bla ha ha take that Rich!



                                                                                                So, it superdawg cracked me up that the Spartans of Michigan State beat the 22nd ranked Michigan Wolverines by 6 points.  I have never really had a major beef with the Wolverines in fact I kind of like them, but Rich Rodriguez...I don't know...There is just something about his face...I just don't like him much!  Maybe its because he is Mexican?  (Latin American)  I don't think so, because my mom is half (Latin American.)  I think it has more to do with the fact that I think he's a douce.  I didn't like the way he left his Alma Matter at West Virginia.  Don't get me wrong if I was him I would love to take over a legendary program like Michigan, but man he's just such a tool!  I loved it last year when the Wolverines went 3 and 9 last year.  I could only laugh when he blamed the piss poor season the fact that he wasn't able utilize "the type of players" for his style of play.  His style of play is not hard to figure out, he spreads out the defense and takes a speedster like Pat White or Tate Forcier and then tell them to pass if they are open or just run it you can choose.  (Yeah, a football genius) In the last 5 games he has only racked up 622 passing yards.  I am not here to rag on Tate Forcier or The University of Michigan I just find it interesting that after Rich left WVU Pat White told ESPN how much better it was with Bill Stewart not always yelling them and ruling with a Machiavellian style of coaching.  Don't forget the student athletes at Ann Arbor who transfered because they didn't like Rich.  Anyways, even though he has experienced success on the football field I enjoy it when he also feels failure on the gridiron.  So, in closing naner naner your probably going to drop out of the top 25.
