Point One: Defense is still selective
That’s correct, defense is still an optional thing in college football, even though teams that routinely run the spread and score in a minute and twenty seconds, leaving their defenses on the field for unendurable minutes have never won a championship. Somehow the idiocy of this point a minute makes for great football garbage is still spreading like the plague in the dark ages. Having watched these three games over the last two weeks, Bowling Green-Memphis, Cincinnati-Memphis, and TCU-Texas Tech, I am appalled as ever by the complete lack of any kind of fundamental play on the defensive side of the football. Better yet, those games are getting longer and longer, not shorter and shorter. As much as I love college football, four hour or more games make me ill. With the spread of this unconventional junk ball offense, here’s a suggestion. Can we please get to the NFL rule of NOT STOPPING THE CLOCK AFTER EVERY FREAKING FIRST DOWN???!!!! CAN WE ALSO STOP REVIEWING EVERY SINGLE SCORING PLAY AUTOMATICALLY????!!!! Now I feel better.
Point 2: UCLA’s drubbing of Arizona in Tucson was much more impressive than Utah’s rout of Oregon
Come on media…are you still slathering your gushing love on Utah for beating a team that was already not as good as they have been for a decade over UCLA’s marching into Arizona Stadium and taking an unbeaten Wildcat team to the woodshed? That’s just poor form, and it’s overvaluing what Oregon is these days. The Ducks have shown plenty of flaws leading into this game, and I seriously thought about picking the Utes to win it outright. I did pick UCLA to beat Arizona, but nobody thought in the MSM that UCLA would do what they did the very first game after losing Myles Jack.
