The BCS does not get the best two teams , it does not give a fair chance for all division one teams, and we get a controversial national champion. College football needs to have a playoff. They would not have Clincher After Utah went was the only undefended team in college football. Utah’s attorney general Mark Shurtleff is investigating the Bowl Championship Series for a possible violation of federal antitrust laws because Utah was left out of the championship in 2008 and in 2004.There are over 300,000 web sites about BCS reform. Bcsreform.org is leading the with spokesman Anthony Davis a two time college football national champion and congressman Gary Miller is trying to pass legislation to get playoffs in college football.
After everything was over Auburn finished the season undefeated from the Southeastern Conference (SEC) arguably the best conference in football and did not even get a chance to win a championship, even though they did everything they possibly could do. College football should get rid of the BCS system and go to a playoff system to decide the national champion. The playoff system should be the top sixteen teams in the country with the teams seeded one through sixteen. The one seed would play the sixteen seed, the two seed would play the fifteen seed, and so on and so forth. This playoff system would be the only fair way to decide the national champion because it would get rid of personal biases and settle the issue on the field rather then at a
Did Robert E. Lee Lose the Civil War for the South? Abstract Most history books portray Robert E. Lee as the greatest general of the American Civil War, acknowledging his brilliance as the reason that the South lasted four years against a vastly superior Union force. The reality was that Lee’s strategy and tactics actually was the reason that the South lost what was a “winnable” conflict. Where the South needed a tie, Lee went for the win and therefore was a major reason the South lost. This paper will evaluate Lee’s military strategic capability in the context of the war and his battlefield leadership, demonstrating how his aggressive “Virginia first” strategy directly contributed to the Confederate loss.
The NLRB only regulates private institutions, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division I teams are dominated by big state schools. In this year’s Sweet 16, for example, only two schools – the University of Dayton and Baylor University — are private. Of the 128 schools in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), just 17 — or 13.2% — are private. And since the NLRB is treating scholarship aid as player compensation, should a cut of player scholarships go to the government? Northwestern will appeal the ruling to the full NLRB board in Washington, but experts say the ruling is likely to stand.
A loss during any weekend could destroy a team's championship hopes. "BCS creates a playoff atmosphere throughout the season." (Alder 2.) No other sport can make the claim that one loss can ruin a team’s chance to play for a national title. This "every-game-matters" attitude that college football brings to the table would be diminished if a playoff system were in effect.

a statistical observation that is markedly different in value from others of the sample” (3). By simply making the NFL, Rodgers is an outlier. He is different than the 99.8% other high school football athletes who were unable to make it the National Football League. Some people may argue that Tom Brady is the best NFL Quarterback because of his achievements. Others may argue that Peyton Manning is the best Quarterback because of his winning ways.
In Kasich’s cabinet he has no blacks and of the 22 only five are women. He is the first Ohio Governor to not appoint at least one minority since 1962. Kasich has received much criticism because of this. Although he claims to be considering putting slot machines at racetracks he is still indecisive about it. He will be the first Governor to actually oversee operating casinos in Ohio.
As the election for the 44th President of the United States closes in on its November election date, many hopeful candidates have come and gone, but only three remain a strong possibility towards reaching the highest role of political excellence. The three candidates are Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and Republican nominee John McCain. There has been much discourse and rhetoric on the democratic side as to what the deciding variable will be for getting that elusive nomination; a criticism that does not reside in John McCain’s campaign because of his quick and swift domination of his party’s candidates to capture the Republican nomination. When running for any public office seat, there is a buffet of topics, Iraq, healthcare and social security to name a few, that the candidate must defend or renounce. If the public is uncertain what kind of
The eight teams are then ranked again separately based on the total average of yards per game by the team’s top performers. The value in which the team is ranked in each category is then added together and divided by two to show out of the sample of team’s chosen, what theoretical ranking each team should be in if they were the only team’s in the league. Because this method produced answers with decimal numbers and rankings cannot be in decimal points, the team’s overall performance ranking trumped the team’s average home attendance ranking. For example, the Tennessee Titans were ranked second in the sample’s average home attendance and fifth in the sample’s average player performance. At the same time, the New York Giants were ranked third in the sample’s average home attendance and fourth in the sample’s average player performance.
