Kopp Disclosure
(John 3:19-21)



It's inevitable.

Boise State will play for the BCS Championship on January 10, 2011 in Glendale, Arizona.

Despite their pansy schedule that makes Beloit College's look tough, sportswriters want playoffs so badly that they will sell out their integrity/souls and vote BS - Hmm. How appropriate is that!?! - into a game that only crackheads think they're earning.

It's sooooooo sentimental.

The human polls - Associated Press (sportswriters) and USA Today (coaches) - have moved BS into #2 ahead of Oklahoma, TCU, Auburn, LSU, Alabama, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Stanford, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Florida State, USC, Florida, West Virginia, Texas, Miami,...


Help me, Jesus!

I know they play on a cute/cool blue field and their part of the country could use some PR; but this is ridiculous.

Thank God for some coldly calculating computers at BCS HQs that still has 'em ranked below Oklahoma and Oregon!

Seriously, as if the preceding hasn't been, the "toughest" teams left on BS' schedule are Nevada and Hawaii.

Hit me with your best shot!

Can you imagine if BS played in the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, SEC, or even the Big East?

C'mon, guys!

Don't make a mockery of the BCS Championship just because you're trying to force playoffs; which, parenthetically, is something that I'd like to see before the parousia.

Exaggerating the quality of BS football concomitant to their anemic schedule just to force playoffs is disingenuous and unfair to those teams/players that play true championship schedules.



It's like when I was called to be "senior" pastor of a really big and fabulously well-to-do church when I was only 29.

I wanted the job.

Academically, administratively, and homiletically, I was kinda "qualified" for the job.

I was pretty back then - hair, Brooks Brothers, ripped, right papers, and...

But the pastor search committee was warned by someone who was my age now back then, "I know you like him. I know he's a very attractive candidate. I know he can do it in the pulpit. But it makes me think of my daughter coming to me at 25 and saying, 'Dad, I've found the perfect man to marry. O.K., he's only 10, but in another 20 years...'"


He was right!

I was unprepared emotionally and spiritually; and while I moved quickly from that big one to a bigger one only to discover my climb to the top of the ecclesiastical ladder of success landed on the wrong building, I fell excruciatingly hard after about ten years because I really wasn't the whole package at those times.

Parenthetically, I'm still not; but I'm praying and laboring and trying...

Kinda like BS and the BCS Championship right now.

Oh, it looks inevitable that they're gonna play in the game.


Again, everybody but crackheads - including the enablers of this probable farce - know they don't really deserve it.


ESPN's guru Lee Corso keeps saying, "BS can beat anybody in the country."


How does he know?

Has BS played anybody yet?

Virginia Tech?


They (VT) lost to James Madison which might get a good game from Beloit College.

Their (BS) legitimacy will be certified by beating Nevada and Hawaii?


That's my point.

They look pretty and want to be in the game bbbbbbbuuuuuuuttttttt...


That's what's wrong with America and too many churches.

They keep dumbing down for sentimental desires and fantasies.

Qualifications/standards have nothing to do with their re-imagined realities.



On the other hand, I'm glad God doesn't make me earn His grace.

I'm glad Jesus won the big one; 'cause I sure as heaven can't.

O.K., maybe there is a place for BS in the big game.

No, not that one.




Blessings and Love!
