Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

The Fabulous BCS National Championship Rematch Game

Did you watch last night's National Championship game between Alabama and LSU? If you missed it, you didn't miss much. Basically, the game sucked. Two good defenses, true, but also a pair of Neanderthal offenses. Alabama could manage some field goals. LSU couldn't manage a damn thing. And these were the two best teams in the land?

While I'm at it, the whole BCS bowl system sucks! Division I NCAA football is the one and only sport, at any level, that does not have a playoff. And that is just preposterous. Playoffs, please. Now!

The NCAA sucks too! Big-time college football and basketball generate mega-bucks for everyone involved, except the players themselves, who are pure amateur student-athletes. And if such an amateur should trade a trinket for tattoo, well, there goes your purity, and we just can't have that, and the NCAA will protect us all with penalties and sanctions. What bullshit! Let's drop the charade and pay the players in the big-money sports. Then let's disband the NCAA and start over.

And one more thing -- Brent Musberger sucks worse than ever! He's become the Dick Vitale of college football.
