Up for Debate: BCS championship game

Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 2:35am

The BCS championship game: What happened? Is the SEC really out of the reach of all the other conferences? Will next year's four-team playoff system be better or worse? Should Notre Dame join a conference? What was the best and worst to come out of Monday night's game?

Here's the facts.

And while all regions have experienced a greater flow of government benefits to their residents, states in the South and in the western portion of the Sun Belt have seen their dependence on government welfare programs rise the most. States such as Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Arizona, New Mexico and Tennessee possess many counties with a high level of dependence on government benefits; some counties have a level of transfer income per capita of over $10,000.

Wouldn't you know - they're red states.

Notre Dame sucks, just like Ohio State.
The big game is this Sat. at Candlestick Park (that's in San Francisco for you neophytes) between the 49ers' and the Packers.
Packers by 13.

As much as I dislike the Packers, I have to agree with you, darge.

Not so fast... 49er's in a nail biter.

slacker, it wouldn't hurt my feelings one it if the Packers lost. :)

nazi, bet your house & dress pocket protector.. on the 49er's, a slackerdamus gilded in gold.. lock.

Wow....maybe even my visor, huh? LOL

How can one dislike the Packers?
Arron Rogers seems like a really nice guy. The best looking QB has to be Flacco (BN-2, listening?) Bart Starr ring a bell? Brett Farve was a dick, but he won games.
Granted, the 'Cheese Head" thing is a little old, but what else is there to do in Green Bay, WI in the winter?
Breed chickens in a coop on your front lawn?
Carry a loaded gun into a bar on the look-out for trouble?
Oh, it's 60 and sunny here in Los Gatos, CA.

dargent, being a native of Chicago it is a requirement at birth to hate the Packers.

By: slacker on 1/8/13 at 4:11

Voting Democrat (several times an election) is also a Chicagoan requirement.

Don't tell my republican family members that.

They were mocking the TN school systems and lack of public trans and I reminded them that's what happens when you don't have a state income tax.

Nashville also has more crime per capita than Chicago, believe it or not.

BN-2: As a native of Michigan, we have built into our DNA to hate the Vikings, Bears, and Packers too.
But, the coach of the 49ers' is Jim Harbaugh, who was QB at Michigan, so being superficial and would sell out my grandmother for .10C, I'll take the Packers, who will win. We'll talk in the Mon. am.

nazi, we don't need a state income tax, we need better students
