A lot of the teams like the system because sometimes if they didn't have a very good chance of winning the actually National Championship title. Like one athletic director said “'qualifying status was a priority for our football program'”(Whitt, p.1) because that was the goal for every team so they thought they had a chance in being chosen to play in the game even if it was pure luck. Also one of the biggest arguments that the against used is that they need to protect the bowl games. One guy said that '”a playoff system would destroy the traditional pageantry of the bowl games”'( Herald, p. 1) that it will ruin all that the bowl games stand for that they cant put the playoffs around the bowl games. Football is its own sport in many was one being its unique championship.
Is the BCS fair? Again Bill Hancock argues heavily that it cannot get fairer than the BCS. Central to his argument in defense of the BCS is Hancock’s interview with Gary Patterson, the head football coach of Texas Christian University (TCU). TCU is a smaller school than most would expect to be against the BCS, but Hancock highlights Patterson’s support for the system. Hancock quotes an ESPN interview with Patterson saying, “We had a vision nine years ago of reaching a BCS bowl and going to a national championship.
Joe Montana: Simply the Best Joe Montana, the comeback kid. Many believe he is the best to play the game, other will argue differently, but there is no argument in saying he is ONE of the best QB's to play the game. Joe Montana was the quarterback who made the 49ers. He ran the Bill Walsh offense to near perfection. I have made this page in honor of the greatest (in my opinion) QB of all time, who lead his team to 4 Super Bowl Championships and boasts 3 Super Bowl MVP's.
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.
Argument Essay: Michael Vick I chose to write my argument for Michael Vick, whom I feel is seen as “bad” but should deserve a second chance. Michael Vick is an American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. He played for the Atlanta Falcons for six seasons before jailed in 2007 for his role in illegal dog fighting. Former number one draft pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 2001, Vick is an outstanding athlete. He signed one of the largest contracts $130 million plus a $37 million signing bonus for 10 years in sports history.
In 1971 high school football was the most important fall activity in many towns in Virginia. The head football coach for a large high school was an important public figure whose job could be forfeited if the season didn't go well. If the team was a winner, the coach was a revered and powerful man. The stars of the team were heroes. In that year, the Alexandria school board decided to comply with court orders to integrate public schools by consolidating the junior and senior classes from its three high schools into one of the schools, T.C.
Friday Night Lights provided all three of these themes plus a whole list of others. This movie also helps to decode why football has such an impact on the youth of America, especially high school football. The 1988 Permian Panther football team deserved to win this game yet they lost, but yet they gained much more out of this experience than the victors did. They learned that football helped turn them into men; it helped them to become much more diverse human beings. Teaching them the basics of being a man while at the same time teaching them the importance of team work and perseverance through whatever life throws at you.
Sandusky and some of his fellow employees’ behavior displayed extreme bad behaviors disregarding the law, work policy, and social status. Tim Curly, Gary Schultz, Joe Paterno, Graham Spanier (University president), Mike McQueary, Jim Calhoun(janitor), Ray Gricar(county district attorney) and Wendell Courtney(former general counsel) are the key individuals who first knew of Jerry Sandusky unethical behavior with the underage boys that
One day the lawyer asks Bartleby to proof a paper for him and the response of Bartleby was “I would prefer not to”. With a response like this you would think that the lawyer would have fired him right away. Instead he finds someone else to do it. To me this was a mistake that he made and would regret later on in the story. The lawyer doesn’t think that Bartleby response was wrong in fact he thinks that it was in fact innocent.
Vince is a tremendous athlete and a gentleman off the field. He was the starting quarterback for the University of Texas Longhorns, until he entered the NFL draft as a junior in college. Young has compiled far to many accomplishments to list, so I will just talk about a few. He is a two time Rose Bowl MVP, and finished second in the voting for the Heisman Trophy this season. Young also won the 2005 Cingular Player of the Year Award, All-American Offensive Player, and The Maxwell Award (college player of the year).
