Announcement just hit my email box -

BCS DECLARES GERMANY WINNER OF WORLD WAR II
US Ranked 4th

After determining the Big-12 championship game participants the BCS computers were put to work on other major contests and today the BCS declared Germany to be the winner of World War II.

"Germany put together an incredible number of victories beginning with the annexation of Austria and the Sudetenland and continuing on into conference play with defeats of Poland, France, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands. Their only losses came against the US and Russia; however considering their entire body of work--including an incredibly tough Strength of Schedule--our computers deemed them worthy of the #1 ranking."

Questioned about the #4 ranking of the United States the BCS commissioner stated "The US only had two major victories--Japan and Germany. The computer models, unlike humans, aren't influenced by head-to-head contests--they consider each contest to be only a single, equally-weighted event."

German Chancellor Adolph Hitler said "Yes, we lost to the US; but we defeated #2 ranked France in only 6 weeks." Herr Hitler has been criticized for seeking dramatic victories to earn 'style points' to enhance Germany's rankings. Hitler protested "Our contest with Poland was in doubt until the final day and the conditions in Norway were incredibly challenging and demanded the application of additional forces."

The French ranking has also come under scrutiny. The BCS commented " France had a single loss against Germany and following a preseason #1 ranking they only fell to #2."

Japan was ranked #3 with victories including Manchuria, Borneo and the Philippines.

LMAO

sadly, it's about how they pick a national championship in college football.

like I said before, if they had BCS in the NFL they would've declared New England the winner and the Giants wouldn't have even been number 2 as nobody expected them to win it all none the less even make it to the super bowl.

BCS = bad , and a sad reality that college football has lost alot of its glamour for me. Like the Heisman, I just can't take it seriously anymore.

The good thing was that they didn't rank Italy too high for their victory over Ethiopia. Too soft of a schedule!

DUDE... This is really funny and all but I strongly disagree with Japan being ranked #3!! They had a very easy schedule and their wins were against non-BCS countries, AND they lost to the US!!

Thanks for the laugh, this is awesome!!

I think Germany received way too high of a preseason ranking, especially after blowing it in WWI.

Funny ****, rep to the OP.
