I think that the one thing that everyone can absolutely agree on without question is that college football needs a playoff... badly. The BCS is an absolute train wreck and is getting worse each year. Let's face it, they were lucky the first couple of years. Take last year for instance. Wasn't the BCS supposed to prevent a split national champion? You ended up with two one loss teams arguing over who should play Oklahoma for the national championship (and as it turns out maybe they should have played each other). This year you have Auburn going through a very tough SEC schedule undefeated and when the Orange Bowl is played for the national championship, Auburn players will be sitting in their hotel rooms in New Orleans watching (or maybe they will be out on Bourbon Street getting hammered). And that isn't even the biggest tragedy. The biggest oversight is Texas. I'm no Texas fan, but they only have one loss... to Oklahoma! How ridiculous is it that they are going to be left out of the BCS while Utah (whose biggest wins are A&M and North Carolina), Michigan (two losses), Virginia Tech (two losses), and worst of all Pittsburgh will all be playing BCS bowl games. Let's take a look at Pittsburgh for a minute. They have epic games against the likes of Temple, Furman, and Rutgers which they can all tack up as wins and when they play a good team like Nebraska they lose! Oh wait... Nebraska was HORRIBLE this year and they still found a way to lose to them. Anyway, nice going BCS selection committee. Way to keep us thrilled with the likes of a Pittsburgh Utah matchup. I'm sorry Texas, but you got screwed and I'm greatful for other options on New Year's day (like recovering from a hang over).

Do a search on Google for Ken Jennings. It looks as if the streak may be over. I read about it on the internet a couple of months ago and in the last couple of days there has been quite a lot of buzz. After 70 some shows and 2.5 million dollars his streak may end tonight. In case you didn't know it... Ken Jennings is a MAN! Dude is capable of answering any question. It is pretty sick actually when you think that the next highest Jeopardy total is 180 thousand. I can gaurantee that I will be tuned in tonight.

Nice job Burlington Coat Factory! Way to hop on the gravy train and hawk t-shirts with the likeness of a socialist revolutionary. I've seen these shirts running around for a while now. I am pretty sure it's probably the same crowd that wears Bob Marley or Von Dutch or some other great world leader. Actually I think it is pretty nice to see a good capitalist company exploiting a socialist. It is kind of like rubbing it in their faces. I've always thought that capitalism would be a lot cooler if there was a good capitalist revolutionary. Someone like George Peppard.

Enjoy retirement Jay Fiedler! Something tells me there is not going to be a huge market for mediocre quarterbacks with a busted up spine in the off season. At least you can start enjoying all that great golf that goes on in South Florida.

This is the first test blog
