Throw a Guy in the Lake: 1/16/09


In you go, BCS coordinator John Swofford, for this quote: "The BCS provided a platform for Utah to show the nation what a terrific football team they had this year. Preceding the BCS, I don't know if that platform would have been there." Really? What about BYU, which won the AP national championship in 1984 by going 13-0 and beating Michigan with Robbie Bosco's one good leg in an epic Holiday Bowl? BYU didn't need your stupid "platform" to win the title. Besides, to say the BCS helped show the nation how "terrific" Utah was is like saying the guillotine helped people see how "terrific" the inside of King Louis' neck was. Position going into the lake: Mouth first.
