The people that voted a 3 loss Texas team #2 over the previously unanimous #1 Ohio State team should lose their votes and be banished to watching the Golf Channel and listening to karaoke for eternity.

I don’t really have a problem with moving a 1 loss Kansas team over OSU despite the fact that they are not nearly as good a team as the Bucks. Kansas proved that by promptly losing to unranked 9 loss Kansas State. K State won for only the 2nd time since Moses was a young boy.

But what were the voters thinking by putting a 3 loss Texas team #2? Maybe the question should be are the voters capable of thought?

Texas lost at home to #4 Pitt then to an unranked USC on their floor. On Jan. 8th they lost at home again to #9 UConn. My question is this. How would you feel if like the joke of a “system” like the BcS decided the NCAA Basketball Champion?

The champion will be decided on the field just like every national college championship for every sport except BcS division football. But it will be interesting to see how the pin head voters pick a #1 team now that Kansas choked. Do you want to bet they put a 3 loss Texas team #1?

That’s what I think. Tell me what you think.
