Utah is already watching film on Alabama as it prepares to face the Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl. Ian Rapoport of the Birmingham News provides some insight on how Utah is working on attacking Alabama’s defense.
We search tons of stories every day to determine which to share. Some are useful, some are funny and others have nothing whatsoever to do with football. Take this one as an example: Alabama Team to Compete for Top Dog Title in AKC Agility Invitational. Good luck as “Webb Anderson of McCalla, Alabama and his Miniature Schnauzer, Nigel, will compete against the top dogs in the country at the Dec. 13-14 event in Long Beach, California.”
No thanks to a playoff
Money. The BCS is superior to a playoff system because of the money it produces. According to The National Championship Issue blog, “On average, the five BCS bowls brought in almost $6.4 Million more per conference per year than March Madness did.”
The blog also goes on to point out that the NCAA’s involvement with March Madness creates additional headaches for schoolsâ€”you know the NCAA, if there is a way to make life miserable, those bureaucrats will find it. (H/T to Senator Blutarsky on the BCS link.)
Bowl sponsors put together very nice gift packs for participants. Alabama and Utah will enjoy, “Sony MP3 Walkman, Sony Blu-Ray player, Timely Watch Co. watch and a New Era cap,” according to Awful Announcing. AA provides a list of almost every bowl gift pack too.
