Alabama’s Blowout BCS Title Game Win Fails to Improve the State’s Dismal Education Record
Miami — Despite the University of Alabama football team’s third BCS National Championship win in four years, the school’s state has yet to improve its dismal secondary, undergraduate, and graduate rankings.
The blowout win against the University of Notre Dame, was called fairly early after the Crimson Tide gained a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.
Following the 42-14 final score, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said he was pleased with his squad’s dominant performance, but was concerned that his state still ranked 46th in High School graduation rate.
“I just don’t understand why Eddie Lacy’s 1st quarter touchdown didn’t improve junior high students’ literacy rate,” Saban said in a post-game interview.
Saban went on to say that he accepted the head coach position at Alabama to improve the states’ schools, not to win BCS titles. Unfortunately, the great on-field success has failed to translate to the state’s many underperforming schools.
Notre Dame is similarly disappointed in their performance last night, particularly because a win would not have only signaled a return to relevance, but also might have helped to decrease Indiana’s rampant crystal meth epidemic.
Obama Uses His WILDLY UNCHECKED EXECUTIVE POWER to End the BCS
President King Obama is on a rampage again! For the third consecutive week, Obama has used his wildly unchecked executive power to halt deportations of law-abiding illegal immigrants and deny congress documents pertaining to operation Fast and Furious. Now, Obama ended the Bowl Championship Series, the controversial college football championship system.
“Come 2014, the BCS is dead. A committee of university presidents on Tuesday approved the BCS commissioners’ plan for a four-team playoff to start in the 2014 season.
“The move completes a six-month process in which the commissioners have been working on a new way to determine a college football champion. Instead of simply matching the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country in a championship game after the regular season, the way the Bowl Championship Series has done since 1998, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will play No. 4, No. 2 will play No. 3.”
Sure, Obama didn’t explicitly have anything to do with the end of the BCS, but I am sure the university presidents were fearful that Obama would come after them next. Like most of his subjects, Obama has never been a fan of the BCS.
The Obama administration is considering several steps that would review the legality of the controversial Bowl Championship Series, the Justice Department said in a letter Friday to a senator who had asked for an antitrust review.
In the letter to Sen. Orrin Hatch, obtained by The Associated Press, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich wrote that the Justice Department is reviewing Hatch’s request and other materials to determine whether to open an investigation into whether the BCS violates antitrust laws.
This is clearly just a cheap move by the Obama campaign to appeal to the south, who will now send four teams to the BCS final four every year.
