10 Questions For College Football :: Eric Sorenson examines the ins and outs of college football
"Question 2 - Let me get this right, it's okay to beg, whine and politic your way to a BCS berth? Shame on Mack Brown.
No wait; why not say congratulations?! He figured out a way to get his team into the Rose Bowl over Cal. From what I've heard, four voters in the coaches poll had the Bears as far down as No. 7 and two had them down as far as No. 8. Yep, Cal at No. 7 or 8. And get this - surprise! - one coach put Texas at No. 2 on his ballot! I wonder who did that?"
That was in the last week, as of the previous week no coaches had Cal lower than six. That four coaches then dropped Cal out of the top six in order to bump up Texas is scandalous. (After Cal won the final game of the season no less.) Who were these coaches? What a bunch of Longhorn bull.
