I’m actually filing this complaint on behalf of Mike Tirico of ESPN who has brought the issue to my attention during a game I was watching today.
Some how when we weren’t looking, NCAA Division I-A, I-AA and I-AAA football teams were renamed the “Football Bowl Subdivision”.
You’ve got to be kidding me. “Football Bowl Subdivision” sounds like a planned housing project. It just doesn’t roll off the tongue like “one-A” or “one-double-A”.
My biggest complaint about renaming these divisions the “Football Bowl Subdivision” is it sounds like the NCAA decided to hire the same person from the Bush Administration who came up with the lame military names like “Operation Iraqi Freedom” and “Operation Enduring Freedom”.
