The New York Times has no clue what it is talking about
So I thought it was bad when the Times was supporting the march to war in 2002-2003, unthinkingly parroting the Bush administration's line.
Now I find out they're all on crack.
Six teams have emerged that could conceivably win the national title. And behind them, there is apparently a large gap to second-tier teams, which are beating one another to perpetuate the illusion of parity.Yes, I know the Times knows nothing about sports, and particularly nothing about college football, but this is crazy talk.
Four of those six top teams — Southern California, Louisiana State, Oklahoma and Florida — have better chances than the other two — California and West Virginia. But these six teams are so far ahead of the pack that any notion that the championship race is wide open is laughable.
