    Bianchi at it again, firing shots at Oregon and Auburn

    I'll just post it here so nobody needs to click over and give him hits.

    This was supposed to be a festive day for college football a joyful Sunday when the bowl bids were extended and we officially found out who would be playing for the national championship.

    Excuse me for my lack of holiday cheer. It's hard to be merry when the two best players in college football Auburn's Cam Newton and Oregon's LaMichael James -- have turned the national title game into the Sewer Bowl.

    Moral dilemma for college football fans: How do you clap your hands and hold your nose at the same time?

    What's even more infuriating is that most of the network analysts are telling us that BCS got it right when, in reality, this matchup feels all wrong.

    Seriously, are we supposed to be happy that another season has come and gone with yet another non-BCS team this time it's TCU finishing unbeaten but not getting a chance to play for college football's ultimate prize? Instead we get an Oregon team that has become the West Coast version of Miami's old "Thug U" against an Auburn team led by the poster child of Southeastern Conference corruption.

    Oregon's James was arrested in February following an incident with his former girlfriend in which the player was charged with one count of strangulation, two counts of fourth-degree assault and two charges of physical harassment. He pled down to physical harassment and was sentenced to 10 days in jail and 24 month of probation.

    Oregon coach Chip Kelly suspended James for one game a 72-0 defeat of undermanned New Mexico in the season opener.

    Meanwhile, Auburn is quarterbacked by Newton, a player who left the University of Florida amid allegations of academic fraud and following an arrest in which he was found with a stolen laptop and threw it out the window when police arrived. Most recently, of course, the NCAA determined that Newton's father Cecil shopped his son in a pay-for-play scheme before Newton signed with the Tigers.

    To review: During Newton's college career, he has been accused of being a thief and a cheat whose recruitment is now being investigated by the NCAA and the FBI.

    It's a good thing one of Auburn's most revered football traditions is to hang toilet paper from the trees at Toomer's Corner after big victories. The Tigers will need every bit of that toilet paper to wipe away the stench emanating from this BC-Mess National Championship Game.

    The decadence in college sports is only going to get worse with the feeble decision by the NCAA and the SEC last week to allow Newton to play despite their determination that his father tried to sell his son's services to the highest bidder.

    Does anybody really think the NCAA would have taken a similar stance if the player had been from TCU or Boise State instead of the rich and powerful SEC? Even other BCS conference commissioners railed against the Newton decision. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said the NCAA "missed an opportunity to stand up" and said "there ought to be consequences" for the actions of Newton's father.

    As for SEC Commissioner Michael Slive, he says Newton retained his eligibility because there is no evidence the player knew of his father's "reprehensible act." Puh-leeze. I would have had much more respect for Slive if he'd have just admitted that Cam Newton is the SEC's meal ticket to a fifth straight national championship.

    And where are all of these supposedly "opinionated" and "controversial" network analysts on the integrity issue? Why is it that these analysts will tell us TCU doesn't deserve to play for the national title because of strength of schedule, but none of them have the guts to say Cam Newton doesn't deserve to play for the national title because of quality of character?

    Maybe it's because the network publicists, er, analysts don't want to destroy the illusion of college football. They are like Disney execs who try to keep us from walking through the wrong door and seeing what truly goes on back stage.

    They don't want us watching Mickey Mouse smoking a cigarette with his head off or Winnie the Pooh over in the corner trying to sleep off a hangover.

    When you peek behind the curtain, the magic suddenly and sadly disappears.

    He is half right.

    The two best players are Cam Newton and Nick Fairley.

    born of the Virgin Mary,
    suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified,
    died and was buried;
    he descended into hell;
    on the third day he rose again from the dead;
    he ascended into heaven,
    and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
    from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

    Cam Newton is the feel good story of the year. He is kid with a corrupt father who attended a school notorious for their players getting in trouble with the law, and he of course gets in trouble with the law.

    A couple years later he transfers to Auburn, the school doesn't succumb to the corrupt father, and Cam Newton develops into an outstanding individual who shows that he is a good person on and off the field. Universities like Auburn are a great place to put a kid with a troubled past in order for a transformation to occur.

    Turning kids susceptible to trouble into standout men is the main goal of these athletic programs. To me, the system is working as intended, and Cam Newton is proof.
    I believe in God,
    the Father almighty,
    Creator of heaven and earth,
    and in Jesus Christ,
    his only Son, our Lord,

    suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified,
    died and was buried;
    he descended into hell;
    on the third day he rose again from the dead;
    he ascended into heaven,
    and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
    from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

    That would have made the article even better as he could have talked about Fairley being the dirtiest player in college football history.

    Don't you think that's being just a tad but sensationalist? I mean, he did lay A cheap shot on Murray, and was flagged. Other than that, he hasn't been flagged for more than maybe one other PF all season - far from being the dirtiest player in college football history. Now those lineman of your that were chop blocking and your coaching staff encouraging players to target Fairely on the other hand....

    Saint Richt is allowed to coach his players to clear the bench and start fights. He adopted a child.

    Are you not familiar with the karma accounting system? Adopting a child is +10 points, each bench clear costs at most a half point.

    It's nice to see this is getting old by now. Whoever this guy is, football obviously isn't his cup of tea with the pinky finger sticking out.
