Happy Festivus!

And we will begin with the "airing of grievances."

I got a lotta problems with you people!! ......

- NCAA Football: It's the most tired rant in sports, but this is the most asinine way possible to decide a champion. And what's worse - you know it.
- BCS: If you are going to bother to issue rankings other than 1 & 2, you have to take the teams accordingly. If your system is good enough to decide the 2 best teams, it's good enough to decide the next 8 as well.
- Bitching fans:
Methzouri - You can't lose a December game by 21 points and argue that you got robbed.

USC - Regardless of how "hot" you think you are, you lost at home to Stanford. End of story.

Georgia - Not only did you not win your own division, but you lost it to a mediocre Tennessee team and in doing so lost at home to non-bowl team South Carolina and those same average Volunteers.
Virginia Tech - I'm sure you are better now than in September, but no team that loses by 41 points deserves to be anywhere near a national championship. Especially one playing in the ACC.
- SEC fanatics: Your league is tough and extremely middle-heavy. I would even argue it's the best. Now quit jerking yourselves off and get over it.
- Trevor Matich: Are you getting paid to do this?
- Mark May: Enough said.
- Lee Corso: Ditto.

No USC, you lost to Stanford.

- All-American voters: Do any of you have an original thought? How is it that there are at least 119 choices for every position and you all think the exact same person merits All American status about 90% of the time. Aqib Talib's stats last year dwarfed what they were this year, but since Kansas is in the top 10, now he is a consensus All-American while last year he was lucky to make the 3rd team.

And don't give me John David Booty was hurt, Stanford was playing their backup quarterback...

- The Mitchell Report:$20 million and 409 pages to unearth that some clubhouse attendants say Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Miguel Tejada, Brian Roberts and some others were with the juice. Pathetic. If you want me to take a dump in a box and slap a guarantee on it, I will. I've got spare time.
- Baseball Writers of America: You aren't going to vote these guys into the Hall? Well I hope you are ready to admonish al of their statistics, along with what their teams accomplished accordingly as well. Because you can't have your cake and eat it too this time. And while we're here, since you all were too fucking stupid to broach this subject when it was actually occurring, perhaps someone else should be voting for this anyway.
- Players named in said report: Nut up. If you still have any. If you were too stupid to write a check for steroids you deserve to be humiliated. And the only people you could possibly be fooling with this whole "took it twice for recovery" charade is the aforementioned gullible writers.
- Billy Packer & Jim Nantz: That'll do.
- Writer's Strike: This shit is getting old fast. Writers - just know that syndication makes money for the stations, but not for you. Chew on that for a while.

No! Even Notre Dame beat them...

- ESPN: I don't have time to go through everything, but here are a few...
NFL Coverage - I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that on a random Wednesday, I think there are a few things we'd all rather have covered than Sean Salisbury's opinion of the Patriots.
Michael Vick - There should be no reason we again hear his name until he is released and attempting to play football again.
Barry Bonds - He did steroids. If something actually happens, let us know.
Alex Rodriguez - He's making a lot of money. Scott Boras is a shitburger. Get on with it.
- Isiah Thomas: Who am I kidding...You are wonderful! But you are fielding a team of sunts.
-Lew Perkins and Mike Alden: Quit being money-grubbing bastards and stay the fuck away from Arrowhead.

Alright, I'll see what i can do. But I'm not making any promises.

On that note, let's move on to the feats of strength...

As of this moment, Kansas University is ranked #3 in basketball and #8 in football. And given that the only basketball game between now and 2008 is against Yale, it is highly likely that the year will end that way. Their cumulative record for 2007 is... 44-4! (And assuming a win v. Yale it will end at 45-4) Broken down, that is 21-3 from last year's basketball team, 11-1 from football and 12(13)-0 for this basketball season. It's always great, but talk about a wonderful time to be a Jayhawk.

And something tells me 2008 will be pretty fun as well. See Below.

Both right away...

And then when an addition is made in April...

Any additions are welcome. And yes, I'll be doing a bowl post shortly. And though some have already been played, you can rest assured everything is truthful.
