| And again, Tommy Tuberville has more votes for the BCS than every employee of ESPN combined |
That's true *this* year, but it was not true last year when the AP was still a part of the BCS.
And ABC still has the BCS contract this year; the FOX contract starts *next* year (although ABC is retaining the Rose Bowl, as you indicated.)
In any event, on ESPN's "The Sports Reporters" this past Sunday, three of the four reporters on the panel actually stated that the public wants to see USC vs. Texas this year.
They actually stated "Sorry Virginia Tech and Alabama: We just want you to go away".
Tuberville is merely trying to stand up for the conference now that his team has been eliminated from the MNC race this year. IMO, this is very admirable of him since Lou Holtz, and other SEC coaches that had votes last year, *didn't* stand up for Auburn at the end of the 2004 season.
By the way, Holtz in particular seems to have a vendetta against the SEC with his constant running down of the SEC teams on the "College Football Gameday Final" show.
