But What About Academics?

Well, the NCAA college world series is wrapping up this week, with a best-of-three series being played Mon-Weds of this week between Fresno State and Georgia. And, once again, we have another example of not caring about the student-athletes! Baseball is as bad as basketball, hockey, soccer, field hockey, fencing, skeet shooting... and anything else that has a playoff. Don't you people understand?? Only football has it right! The fairness of a voting system. The essence of competition between the best teams, as determined by a computer algorithm.

Here we go again, NCAA. You have teams playing in tournaments. What are you thinking? All that travel! How will these young, impressionable -- not to mention, delicate -- youngsters handle such rigors? Why, flying on airplanes... what is this? The future?

The NCAA baseball tourney kicked off almost a month ago. There were "Super Regionals" held in Athens, GA; Baton Rouge, LA; Cary, NC; Coral Gables, FL; Fullerton, CA; Houston, TX; Tallahassee, FL; and Tempe, AZ. The Regionals before them actually included all those plus Ann Arbor, MI; Conway, SC; College Station, TX; Lincoln, NE; Long Beach, CA; Raleigh, NC; Stanford, CA; and Stillwater, OK.

It's madness, I tell you, MADNESS!!!

When will they have time to study? Couldn't this have overlapped with academic finals? See, college football is sensitive to such things by not having a playoff of any sort. Even though such a playoff would be held during 99% of schools' winter breaks.

Next thing you crazy-ass fans will want a tournament for football with 64 teams in it! Then where will the madness end?


In the end, folks, we all know why football doesn't have something that every single pro and college sport -- besides D-I football -- has. And that reason is.....
