Justin Case for December 7, 2011
Point blank - Tech and UVa BOTH got lucky. The Sugar Bowl committee hooked 'em both up.
Boise, Kan State and Arkansas all had better cases to get in the BCS. Ark was eliminated because no more than 2 teams from the same conference can make the BCS.
LSU and Alabama took up those two in the national championship. The top 2 teams automatically get into the title game so how come the teams next in line don't go to the rest of the BCS games. VT and Mich were 11th and 13th in the BCS standings.
Dennis and I break it down with our thoughts in the ABC 13 Sports Chat here.
We'll have coverage of Tech and UVa for the next 3 weeks and I'll be heading to Atlanta and New Orleans for our coverage. We'll have coverage on TV, wset.com and on my twitter feed: @justinabc13 so follow me.
Brookville, Gretna and Christiansburg will all play for a state title. I'll be covering Brookville's game against James Monroe. JM has beaten Brookville once when coach Jeff Woody was a senior at Brookville and once again 3 years ago when Logan Thomas was a senior. JM won 40-36. Logan threw for a record 393 yds in a losing effort. I wonder if he'll be there Saturday?
Rock it out.
