Utes Blast Alabama; BCS Sucks; Give Us A Change Now!

Brad JamesCorrespondent IJanuary 2, 2009

In case anyone hasn’t noticed, the BCS is broken and the No. 6 Utah Utes applied the latest death knell to the corrupt system with a 31-17 dismantling of No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide Friday in the Sugar Bowl at the Louisiana Superdome.

Brian Johnson (27 of 41, 336 yards, 3 TD’s) was outstanding in his final performance as Utah’s quarterback, as he engineered three touchdown drives in the first quarter to lead the Utes to an insurmountable 21-0 lead.

Additionally, the Utes’ defense feasted on an Alabama offensive line missing stud lineman Andre Smith, as they sacked Tide signal-caller John Parker Wilson eight times, while Utah surrendered only 208 offensive yards on the evening.

Leading up to the game, Alabama coach Nick Saban made several inflammatory comments toward the Utes concerning their supposed lack of tough games heading into the Sugar Bowl, but Utah brought the heat repeatedly against the beleaguered Tide.

Regrettably, because of the corruption infiltrating the BCS system, the Utes probably will not be ranked No. 1 when the final polls come out Jan. 9 after Florida and Oklahoma play for the alleged title Thursday, Jan. 8.

With this said, Utah president Michael K. Young needs to file a lawsuit against the BCS and other heroes of the common man such as Texas congressman Joe Barton and of course, our new president elect Barack Obama need to join him.


With that said, I look forward to the NFL playoffs, wherein the action is decided on the field and is excellent to behold!
