|"Thanks for saving us from ourselves bruh! We knew we weren't ready!"|
Alexander Dumas once said, “All human wisdom is summed up in two words-wait and hope.” Ralph Waldo Emerson gave us this, “Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.” However, Julius Caesar was a G when he broke down, “It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.”
I’ve been telling you boyz for weeks not to freak out because the top 4 teams were undefeated like the dull media does every year. Sit in the cut and be patient! As much as clowns hate the BCS it always gets it right!! The two best teams in the country have ALWAYS played for the title and this year will be no different. Well… in 2004 USC and Oklahoma were #1 & #2 for most of the season and remained unbeaten. Auburn came out of nowhere, didn’t lose a game and didn’t get in. But USC was a juggernaut with Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush & Co. so it wouldn’t have mattered if they played them or the Sooners. The only reason that we went to the BCS in the first place was to finally get #1 to play #2 for all of the marbles. In the past, because of bowl contracts with conferences, the two best teams never squared off. Now they do!!!
What have I been telling you every week bruh? “The playoffs started week 1!” That’s what makes college football so exciting! There was no way 4 teams were going to pull into the station undefeated because it never happens because everybody can’t handle the pressure. Last week we saw Alabama, who is the best team in the country, fall asleep at the wheel and allow Johnny Manziel to become the front runner in the Heisman race. All week folks have been freaking out because of the possibility that Notre Dame could get left out even if they ran the table. Patience people!!! It’s college football!
When I saw Kansas State move up to #1 last week I knew that it was a death sentence because Kansas State is Kansas State! They got the doors blown off of them by Baylor 52-24 not because the Bears were that much better. They got blown out because they were Kansas State! There is a reason why boyz are playing in Manhattan bruh!
They’ve been winning games but they aren’t accustomed to having the spotlight on them like that. At some point the pot was gonna boil over! They aren’t the same kids that play at Alabama, Ohio State, LSU, Oklahoma etc. They aren’t the 5 star guys that have lived in the bubble their entire lives, dated the baddest chicks and see the national media on campus every week.
Naw, they’re the duns that got offered by Iowa State, Sam Houston State, North Texas and Kansas State. So they picked the best of the lot. When the target was put on their backs they got attention that they weren’t ready to handle. Boyz knocking on their dorm room doors all week tellin’ ‘em how good they are. They’re hollerin’ at women that they’ve never even known were on campus. Cats walking to class in a fog thinking about being the #1 team in the country and not preparing to play like it and forgot all about dull Baylor!
Let me say it again bruh! “The playoffs started week 1!” You can’t afford to fall asleep at the wheel down the stretch. Ole Stanford went out to Eugene and got with the Parliament Funkadelic 17-14 in OT in an Instant Classic. Cats can’t blame the loss on the injury bug that has plagued the Oregon defense all year because they only gave up 17 points.
So Notre Dame moves up to #1 and guess what? The Alabama Crimson Tide will position themselves at #2 for at least the next 2 weeks! In my opinion they shouldn’t be #2 because of the dull schedule they've played. Y'all know they took a smoke break yesterday and beat up on ole dull Western Carolina 49-0! SMH! If anybody should be in the 2 spot it should be Mark Richt’s Georgia because they’ve played a gantlet of a schedule! However, it’s cool because they still have to play each other for the SEC title game in the “A.” So again, things will sort themselves out!
In 2014 Oregon and K State would at least have gotten a chance to redeem themselves in the 4 team playoff right? Wrong, cuz boyz are still voting on the top 4 and the dull media will bounce both of them out of the top 4 then just like they will today! So to use the word playoff is still all smoke and mirrors! It's all about the bread homeboy! You can't have a legitimate playoff when there are 120 teams the FBS! This ain't basketball where boyz can play 3 games in a week. So you gotta still vote on who gets in and the powers that be will still be pulling the trigger! The same dull powers that are about to rob Johnny Football of the Heisman and give it Manti Te'o because he plays at Notre Dame and is a great story!
Let's keep it real or all the way 100, whichever, comes 1st! Cats from the hood have been playing through murders, drug addictions and imprisonments of family members for years and they haven't won Heisman trophies because of it! So don't try to give Te'o the joint because of family tragedy. Johnny Football is running circles around boyz and deserves to win it because he is the most OUTSTANDING player in the country!
So it's just gonna be a money grab that the players still don't get to see, smell or touch so you can leave all the semantics out! Adding games won't change the outcome it just puts more bread into greedy cats pockets! The best 2 teams will always play in the title game and if they happen to be from the SEC more often than not, then it is was it is. Again, that doesn't mean that the entire conference from top to bottom is good. It means that the top 3 or 4 teams are better than everybody else until proven otherwise.
So kick your feet up and enjoy it because it doesn’t get any better than this homeboy! If you love suspense, drama and heartache, college football is your drug of choice and I'm ya Pusha Man! Because all I wanna see is #1 play #2 and it doesn’t matter to me what hood they're from or what set they throw up! Just give me the two best teams and I’m cool! So when y’all finish sorting it out I’ll be right here!
Holla At Ya Boy!
