As if we needed more proof that we live in a fallen world, how on earth can the BCS title game not include USC?
Pete Carroll's Trojans spanked a very good Penn State team from beginning to end. Despite all the talk about the weakness of West Coast football, the Pac-Ten team won each one of their bowl games. Oklahoma against Florida? Give me a break! It should be USC against the Gators, plain and simple!
Looks like more and more folks are getting onboard with the "BCS plus one" proposal. All the major bowl games would be played again on New Years' Eve or Day--rather than scattering them all over the place. These five bowl games (all the traditional ones) would feature the six major conference winners, plus four wildcard teams. Then, the next week there would be a single game playoff between the two teams that had the highest computer rankings from the bowl games the week before. Now that makes sense . . .
But since this makes so much sense, it will probably never come to pass. I'm certain that in order to be one of NCAA officials who decides such things, you must first have been a member of Congress.
