ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Once again, as the Brigham Young Cougars demoralized the Oklahoma Sooners with a one-point victory, the BCS was exposed for what it is, a hoax that oppresses not only college football, but collegians everywhere with its insistence that only those who reside in conferences with automatic bids to the illegal cartel profit thereby.

Already this season, we have seen Boise State pummel Oregon, a member of a BCS conference, as well as the Cougars’ mastery of the Sooners.

Although the margin was slim, those who watched the game know Brigham Young dominated from wire to wire as only their mistakes gave Oklahoma a sliver of a chance.

While last year’s Heisman winner, Sam Bradford, was injured in the first half for the Sooners, they were equally ineffective with him as they were without him in the second half.

Ultimately, what was proven, for the umpteenth time, was any good team, regardless of what conference they reside in, can compete with the so-called “elitists” in college football.

The media at large continues to eschew the excellence that resides in other conferences outside the BCS, especially the Mountain West, where Utah, Texas Christian and of course, Brigham Young will continue to defy the logic of how college football is supposed to go, according to their delusional view of the world.

Currently, Senators Orrin Hatch and Joe Barton are working night and day to find a way to break up the BCS but the best way to expedite change is to make power brokers in any given organization look foolish.

That is what Brigham Young and their Mountain West brethren, along with Boise State have done, and will continue to do.

Victims have included storied programs Pittsburgh, Alabama and Oklahoma, previously when Boise State embarrassed them on national television in the Fiesta Bowl.

Those who refuse to see the need for a playoff in Division 1 are those who condone lawbreaking and injustice of every kind.

It is a slap in the face to our illustrious Founding Fathers and the Constitution, inspired of heaven, that this nonsense persists.

However, there is solace, the NFL comes upon us September 10 and with compelling action on the field and a REAL PLAYOFF, I will be entranced by yet another season of magnificent professional football. GO BRONCOS!!!

With that said, the BCS may be laughing all the way to the bank for now, but having the federal government on your tail is never a good thing.
