So the final score of the BCS championship football between Auburn and Oregon was 22-19. So this is a BCS conspiracy! That's it. The BCS wants to secretly do away with March Madness.
So Butler shoots 22% from the field. And leads.
So Butler gets outrebounded by eight. And leads.
So what will Charles, Kenny and friends say?
Greg Anthony: "Worst half of basketball I've seen in a national championship game." Hard to argue.
Seth Davis: "Looks like two teams competing to see who can play worse. Very bad showcase for college basketball." Hard to argue.
Charles Barkley: "A team makes six field goals and has the lead. That's sad. That was an awful half of basketball." Hard to argue.
Consensus? At least CBS isn't sugarcoating anything.
