Utah attorney general Mark L. Shurtleff recently wrote a commentary for the Arizona Republic arguing the Bowl Championship Series needs to be abolished.
He's certainly entitled to an opinion, one shared by many. But he's not entitled to make up his own facts.
"Not only is the system unfair, it is also illegal," Shurtleff wrote.
Shurtleff failed to mention Utah joined the "illegal" Pac-12 this year just in time to reap the benefits of the league's new $3 billion television contract.
Shurtleff also wrote that Utah, as the only undefeated team in 2008, was denied a shot at the title because "the cabal" required two one-loss teams to play. He said coaches voted Utah No. 4 in the BCS because "they had not seen them play."
Buckeye leadership: Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee told the Columbus Dispatch this week: "We are the poster child for compliance."
His comments came after three Buckeyes players were suspended for Saturday's game against Nebraska because they were overpaid for part-time work. Two of the players were set to return this week after serving five-game suspensions for other violations.
Maybe what Ohio State needs to be is the poster "adult" for compliance.
Unbeaten not enough? It's hard to imagine the champion of college football's best division not playing for the BCS title in New Orleans. Shoot, Alabama and LSU, which meet in an SEC game Nov. 5, might require a rematch.
This could be one of those years when going undefeated might not be enough. Oklahoma at 12-0 likely would have the second title spot locked down. An undefeated Wisconsin, Stanford, Boise State and Georgia Tech or Clemson would have a tough time breaking through.
In 2004, undefeated SEC champion Auburn got left out of the title game because USC and Oklahoma started the year on top and never lost.
One consolation this year could be undefeated Stanford and Wisconsin playing in the Rose Bowl.
