Boy. Not only are tempers still flaring over current BCS issues, but there are still some 2005 grudges that seem to be on the front burner. USC blog Boy From Troi, for instance, couldn't help taking a shot at Texas when the latter's marketing dept. sent out an e-mail promoting the arrival of their new Alamo Bowl gear.
Schadendfreude, baby! Just in the email, "Get Your Alamo Bowl Gear!" Ha ha ha ha ha!

Still angry over Michigan's exclusion from the BCS national title football game, a pair of state lawmakers are calling for a playoff system. Sens. Mark Schauer and Mike Bishop, the incoming Democratic and Republican leaders of the Senate, say subjectivity should be removed from a process that has financial and emotional repercussions. "The BCS system is clearly not working and consumers in Michigan and around the country are paying a very real price," said Schauer, D-Battle Creek.
Hmm. Wonder what's going on at Boise State? Potato riots?
