Final BCS Standings Foulup, Al Horford's Minutes, And Mutant Falcons: Around The Perimeter

Falcons: Shutdown Corner's Chris Chase thinks insufficient camera power helped the Atlanta Falcons beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Chase's theory is that the ball came out and hit the ground during Brent Grimes' interception, the referee knows it (?), and Fox's TV camera arrangement prevented him from ruling the play as he knew (?) it played out.

He's just one of those X-man people from the movie. Mike Smith is also, which is why he used his Magnet Man (that's the guy's name) Magnet Hat to steer Fox's cameras away.

BC Interruption calculates each ACC team's bowl game travel miles and plots them on a map, finding the Boston College Eagles again take the crown. Ordinarily you'd say, "Well that's what happens when you play in Massachusetts and join a Southeastern conference," but they really do get sent out west a lot.

BCS: [30 for 30 voice] What if I told you a BCS computer screwed up the final BCS rankings, a set of rankings that determines which teams go to limousine-ridin' bowls and which teams go to Sizzler-eatin' bowls?
