Oh fine, non college football fans might want to look away now!
Earlier today, the 4 teams for the College Football playoffs were named. In truth, though I disagree with the order of 3 of them (Clemson, Oklahoma and Georgia), those teams deserve to be in the play offs, no arguments. Where the fun starts, was the 4th team picked.
In truth, Ohio State might have had a couple of losses, but they won the Big 10 in the end, so must have a chance, right? On top of that USC also had a couple of losses, but won the Pac 12 nicely, so must be in contention for selection. Well…? More shortly! Then you get the matter of Alabama, who only lost 1 game, but they lost to Auburn, who got thumped in their rematch by Georgia, so not good?
Wrong, wrong! The incessant hype surrounding Alabama got them into the Top 4! Seriously? Dont get me wrong, but surely they should be below Auburn in ratings? No, seemingly. Before anyone asks, the best team they beat is ranked 17! Ohio State beat 2 in Top 10, and USC have nice rank wins too. But…? Oh, I forgot, its the SEC, and people look at that with rose colored glasses!
To be honest, with the East Coast bias, I might have settled for USC being ranked 5, or 6, but no, they are ranked 8! Seriously, I wonder if any of the committee have even seen a West Coast game, and I’m not sure in this era of cosy insularity on the East Coast, do they even know the West Coast exists, or have they gone back to the 1850’s or something?
Fine, California lover rant over. Honest. The other bowls havent been announced yet, but fine, a friend and I are hoping Kansas State, and Oregon get matched! Love you, Alei x!
Tonights video is supposedly a live performance. Beyond maybe, Neil Tennant singing live (and I’m not convinced), this isnt live! But fine those outfits really are something, just love them!
