I read it and I liked it. I do not like the media and the BCS immediately dismissing the likes of Utah and Boise simply because they do not play in one of the 6 "preferred" conferences. This system is in complete shambles. They talk about how the regular season is a weekly playoff...well, not true...see OUsux and FL "still" playing for the MNC. Last I checked, they both lost...one to a 9-4 team, one to a 12-1 team. I am over this system...they are ripping all that is good and holy with college football right out of our fingers. That notwithstanding, I sure hope that FL lays the wood to OUsux.
Back to my point...Utah probably could have played with anyone that night. Yet they will never get the chance to prove it. Eight bowl wins in a row...two BCS wins and two UNDEFEATED seasons in the BCS era...I believe they are the only team to accomplish that feat. Look, they can only play who they can play. But they deserve a CHANCE against the "chosen ones."
FL beats Bama and they get into the BCS MNC...Utah beats Bama and they get squadoosh. And spare me the "Bama had nothing to play for crap. The are Ala-freaking-bama...you show up and play!!!
Of the one loss teams, UT and OU have the most compelling arguments for being included still at this point to face Utah. But the horns should have put it on tOSU...the little 10 is way down this year...and please spare me the layoff with passing teams yada yada yada. The horns were very lucky to eek out that victory. They had to have a beatdown to even get consideration for #1 and they did not accomplish that goal. UT will finish 3 or 4 is my gut feeling...possibly behind USC and the winner of the MNC. If they finish 2, it will be even worse if OUsux actually wins the MNC game...how ironic will that be...identical records, with UT behind the hated Sooners...need I say more?
