Does anybody think any of the remaining games decide the national championship? OK, for you people, this just in: OJ did it. Oh, and it's cold in Moscow in January.
So yeah, here we are just where we were last year: USC puts the best team on the field in college football, the light bulb will go on over a few writers heads, and that's it. SOme galloping clodhopper team gets the crown. With one loose quarter against Oregon State-- another bowl winner, of course, about which you read here in August; the Pac 10 ran the bowl table this year, btw -- USC is denied the national title by the BCS rocket scientists again.
I loathe USC as much as the next guy-- probably more, actually, what with they're inexplicable cheeseball cheer for the memory-challenged ("We are -- SC!") and their famous Rubber Band ("Another score for the Trojans!") -- but you have to give Pete and their football program in general credit. A lot of it. Like the national championship.
I was glad to read that Barack favors a playoff. Can't he, like, order one by Presidential Decree for Jan. 21 or something? What? Yes I *know* we're a republic. C'mon, what good is being president if you can't mete out some frickin' Justice?
