USA Today had an article online this morning talking about the Michigan-Notre Dame game.
The headline: "Michigan blanks Notre Dame in battle of winless powers"
Now, think about that for a minute.
Isn't that a contradiction in terms, an oxymoron?
Like "jumbo shrimp." Or "working vacation." Or "Microsoft Works." Or "liberal thinking?"
Two teams that are 0-2 each, getting beaten badly, and still called "powers."
I'm thinking that if Florida had opened the season 0-2, any reference to them would have been qualified. Like "traditional power" or "former power" or something other than just plain "power."
But it was Michigan and Notre Dame.
So all facts are out the window.
Just like when it comes to reporting news. The mainstream media supports the party line. Only, it's a football party, this time.
And there's nothing really wrong with a football party. As long as its on the tailgate of a truck in the parking lot.
