The last week or so has been painful.
It started with Texas getting snubbed for the Big XII Championship. The idea that a team we beat head to head ranked above us isn't right, but I at least understand the OU argument. It's quasi-rational. The problem is that people got so caught up in this travesty that they missed the bigger problem; Florida.
Everyone, media included, gave a lot of thought and insight into Texas/OU. It seemed that every person you asked had an opinion. There are articles coming out today that still contend that Texas was wronged by OU. While that may be the case, the much larger problem that everyone seems to have missed here is Florida. Compare the schedules. Compare the losses. How is it possible that voters have Florida ranked above Texas?
Even Mack bought into the hype.
It feels like voters decided, "Let's see who's SEC #1 and Big 12 #1 and then vote them in." The ballots clearly reflected this sentiment. Voters didn't give a second thought that Texas should be considered the second best team in the nation.
And, save me the "you lost too late," "we don't want to see a rematch", "two teams shouldn't come from the same conference." It's trash. And, frankly, it's offensive. It suggests that the voters are not capable of being objective.
I want to hear an case for Florida that carries some weight. Can someone, anyone, please make a case for Florida? Please.
