BCS Championship Open Thread

The BCS football championship game is tonight. I call it the BS championship game, because I do not believe it is a true championship. There are no playoffs, all decisions as to who plays in the annual affair is left up to politics and computers.

But still, there will be a game tonight that will pit Florida against Ohio State for bragging rights in College Football, for another season. Will OSU put the finishing touches on a perfect season, or will UF have something to say about it? Tomorrow, those of us that are really into football can analyze it here (probably all three of us).

Anyway, I am picking UF to upset OSU. I think that Florida plays in the toughest conference in college football and will be up to the test. What about you?

BCS is a scam! Who says these are the 2 best teams? Who's to say the ND-LSU wasn't the national championship? Plus, the game will drone on for hours past my bed-time.

I doubt there's any system that will stop the bickering. Even if they had a basketball-like bracket people would still talk about how unfair it was that some 8 seed upset #1.

The bowls have always been more about money and pleasing the alumni than a real number one. But, it's fun anyway..

As a former Buckeye resident I'll got with Ohio State.

Well, I have to chair a committee meeting tomorrow. The score is 41-14. I am not sure that Montana, Marino, or Elway could engineer the kind of comeback OSU would need right now.

So, I am off to bed.
