Sunday offseason one-liners

Death to the BcS

Some links from around college football from over the weekend…

— ESPN’s Mark Schlabach writes that bowl sites for a four-team playoff could be chosen based on conference tie-ins.

— The BCS is dying, writes Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star, but the real challenge for college athletics remains.

— Very sad news from last week, as a small college football player in Nebraska has passed away from injuries he sustained when he fell out of the back of a pickup truck.

— Is Brett Hundley on the verge of claiming UCLA’s QB job? Seeing as no one else can stay healthy, I’d say he has as good a shot as anyone.

— Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno was in the works for a biography before his death earlier this year.

— InĀ preparationĀ for their move to the Big East, Navy is cancelling a four-game series with UNLV. I understand your inconsolable state and we’ll allow you plenty of time to grieve.

    Ben: I hope Sam Mellinger is correct in that BCS is dying. It reminds me of an old riverboat melodrama I was in way back in high school. The villain was shot by the hero defending the damsel in distress. The villain did not just die. He flopped and turned, rolled, moaned and groaned, grabbed his chest and other body parts, and stretched his death out about 5 minutes. This was not in the script. The director (our high school drama teacher) was not happy, but here we were in front of a packed theatre of parents and community leaders. Finally the hero went over to the villain and placed a foot on his chest, and looked down and said, “Now you either die now or I really will kill you!” and the villain settled down and died so the entire act could end.

    When is the BCS going to die so this act can end?
