It is always one of the minor BCS games. The national championship game is reserved for the winner of the Southeastern Conference and a team to be determined. Which brings us to the second major problem with the BCS; it has become a matter of course that the Southeastern Conference champion is going to play for the national title. This further limits the field of potential title contenders by insuring that 1 of 12 teams
This in turn would cause a split of the national championship. The idea of splitting a national title was not acceptable to any one school, because of course any one school would like to have the “bragging rights” to claim the national championship; most importantly though the split would it allow the two true top two teams in the nation to play against one another for the title, this is where the idea of a mythical crown comes into play, or a sense of false achievement. However, the decision was made to let the two conferences continue to play in the Rose Bowl and a new ranking system would be implemented. Officials felt in order of it to be level all the way around the board the BCS needed to be broken into multiple categories, then from this point they began to set the guidelines for how the BCS standing would be determined. The BCS standings are derived from The Harris Interactive College Football Poll, USA Today Coaches Poll and computer rankings.
Football is its own sport in many was one being its unique championship. “Football remains the only NCAA sport whose championship isn't decided through a playoff system”(Herald, p.1) that is very unique to the sport and some want to keep it because they like to be different. Some believe that the more different they are the better it is. One of the main groups that were against playoffs were the “lords” or owners, of different teams that they are “ defending the 'fairness' of deeply flawed for determining a division 1-A National Champion”(Herald, p.1). They don't care if others say that the way is flawed they still believe that it is fair in some
Young also won the 2005 Cingular Player of the Year Award, All-American Offensive Player, and The Maxwell Award (college player of the year). He is what some would call the best college football player ever, and he fills this role pretty well. A perfect display of his dominance was exhibited at the 2006 Rose Bowl where he compiled 467 yards of total offense and 3 rushing touchdowns. Young’s third touchdown came in the final seconds of the game where he ran around the outside and went untouched into the end zone to put Texas up 41-38 over unbeaten USC. But like Redick, Vince keeps it together off the field.
Joe was inducted to the Football Hall of Fame at the age of 44. Joe “Cool” Montana, The Comeback Kid How did a boy from small town Pennsylvania become the greatest clutch play that the NFL has ever seen? There are three significant reasons why Joe Montana, former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers football team, is the greatest regular season as well as greatest Super Bowl quarterback in National Football League history. First, Montana had a baffling sense for reading defenses, finding his receivers or running the ball out of trouble when linemen rushed him. Second, he possessed an astonishing intuition that resulted in long gains or touchdowns, when other quarterbacks would have been sacked.
Works Cited O. J. Simpson Trial: America’s Favorite Court Case O. J., born Orenthal James Simpson on July 9, 1947, was an American college and professional football player. He also worked as a sports commentator, actor, and owned profitable food franchises. He lived a successful life and “was a perfect example of the "rags to riches" fairy tale” (U*X*L Biographies). But, after June 12, 1994, the day of his wife’s and her friend’s murders, his life would never be the same. O. J. loved the game of football since he was a young child.
Brief Situation summary: a. The issue that the NFL is facing is fans in complete outrage over a very controversial ruling made by replacement referees, and later backed by the NFL, during the Seattle Seahawks game against the Green bay Packers on Monday September 24th, which lead to a 14-12 victory for the Seahawks. The ruling is that the touchdown scored by Seahawks receiver Golden Tate was ruled as “joint possession” since the ball was also in the arms of Packers safety M.D. Jennings. Under NFL rules, joint possessions results in offensive possession that gave the Seahawks the winning touchdown.
Having speed, agility, power, and awareness is the key components for winning a game on defense and the Eagles have all of that. Starting with the secondary led by all-pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha that had a dreadful year in his first year with team but, since he got a feel of the National Conference and adapt to the team now, I can see plenty of interceptions coming his way next season. On the other side of the field is Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also first year with the team who suffered knee problems along the way. Over the off season activities the team should have enough chemistry to become an elite defense
Owners already believe that players are getting to much of the revenue that is being brought in and argue that an 18 game season is needed to close the budget gaps that so many of their clubs face. This argument of expanding the NFL season is a huge part of the new labor deal that must be negotiated before there is an NFL season in 2011-2012. The other part of the labor deal relies on an agreement between the owners and the players on revenue division. The reason I mention this is that players do not agree they should have to take a pay cut to play a longer season where more risk is involved concerning their bodies yet the owners do. Still, if this part of the labor deal is not negotiated it could result in an NFL lockout that could result in devastating losses for players and owners.
It's not like basketball where the star player can take over the game in crunch time because in football, the star quarterback could be on the sideline while the defense has to be the hero and stop the opposing team from scoring on their last possession. It takes a team effort of coaches and players to win consistently in the
