There, I said it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the college bowl system. But what the hell does this have to do with Hawaiians?
Every year around this time, the sports talk starts going nuts about how the college football bowl system needs to be revamped because it is either too complicated or it doesn’t result in the best teams playing each other at the end of the season, or some team gets screwed in some way.
Well, holySmith! is officially calling bullshit on this whole thing. There is nothing wrong with the college football system. It is what it is and it will stay as it is because every year, people are passionate enough about it to keep saying it needs to be revamped. College football is really no different than our own government. If you really look at it, it seems completely retarded and corrupt in so many ways that you feel like you want to remove yourself from it entirely and not participate, yet here you are, year after year, throwing in your $0.02.
Like any good drama, it’s the flaws that make the story great. If it were perfect, it wouldn’t be nearly as fun. There are sports commentators out there who basically make a living ranting about the ills of the college bowl system and how it is this and that. If your team is ranked atop this mess, you are definitely in favor of how it works. But even if you aren’t who cares. You are a fan and you live and die with your team. Going into one of the last weeks of the season, there is so much on the line and Mizzou of all teams is ranked number 1, yet are an underdog to OK this week. ASU could wind up in the Rose Bowl assuming we stomp U of A and the rest of the Pac-10 loses. As far as I can tell, there’s nothing wrong with the system unless you are Hawaii. But screw them, they are Hawaii.
Hawaiians have no goddamn reason to complain about anything. They live in F-ing Hawaii. Cry me a river.
