Kudos to Chris Fowler for actually speaking the truth...Herbstreet had the chance to make some sense of it, and chose not to. Corso, one line as always, and misguided this time. Nothing was solved last night.
I feel like the 2008 College Football season is a novel that never ended...the author just stopped writing...ceasing to finish the story, or offer a climax, and sum up lessons learned for the book's main characters. For those of us who do not read: It is as if we are in the final scene of a very tense movie action sequence...the main character is involved in a struggle with the enemy, and without the viewer knowing what happened in the final chase, struggle, shoot-out............they decide to roll the credits. The audience looks around at each other and feels like they were robbed of CLOSURE. How does it end?
The main characters: FL, UT, USC, and Utah.
The authors: BCS Honks
The Critics: touting the party line so as to do their best to convince the rest of of us THEY know best (this would be your sportswriters/analysts who think a playoff is not necessary).
Chris Fowler: "You cannot tell me in your heart of hearts that you know that FL would beat USC or UT or Utah." -- Brilliant sir...and thank you.
The most poignant aspect of UT offering FL a better matchup over OU is the mobility of Colt McCoy. Bradford is one dimensional...a prolific passer well suited for the NFL style offenses. FL matched up with OU one on one...the only other team that could do that was the Horns. We know how that ended. UT is the best team in the Big XII as noted by their top final ranking in conference. But this is one longhorn who is still frustrated. There will be no true national champion this season in my book. I am not sure if UT would beat the likes of FL or USC...but it would be phenomenal to see how is plays out, rather than how it votes out.
