Oh wait, it’s just the winding down of another college football season.
But if that isn’t close to the end of the world then what is?
Okay maybe I am being a little overdramatical, (yes I made up a word), but think about it college football is winding down, with only one more week left to go in the regular seasons of many teams and some teams having finished their seasons yesterday, that means I am going to have to actually do things on Saturdays now, instead of being parked in front of the television drinking beer and eating whatever unhealthy snack recipe I can come up with.
This college football season has seen some interesting story lines come about with the BCS and the way teams are ranked.
A lot of people are having hissy fits about the possibility of an Alabama – LSU rematch for the National Championship.
One of the quotes was “How can they compete for a National Championship if they don’t win their conference championship?
Didn’t USC compete for a NC a few years ago, Didn’t Oregon? Wasn’t Oklahoma and Oklahoma State competing this year?
Up until this year Oregon and USC did not have a conference championship game.
This year the Big Twelve (or the conference formerly known as the Big Twelve) will not have a championship game either.
But that doesn’t really matter according to the BCS people, they want a match up between the two best teams in the country and simply put LSU and Alabama are the two best teams in the country.
Were it not for a blown call by the referees and some missed field goals Alabama would have won, however since things worked out like they did, LSU won, Bama lost and a rematch is looming on the horizon.
If you like good defensive games then Alabama vs LSU for the National Championship would be the best choice.
If you like the two best teams in the nation for the National Championship then Alabama and LSU are the best choice.
If you want to see a lot of scoring and fast paced offenses with no defense then get Stanford to play Houston or Boise State for the NC.
From the looks of things Bama is pretty much guaranteed a shot by virtue of being ranked number two at this time, there is still a chance (slim) that GA could knock off LSU next week in the SECCG and end up putting Oklahoma State or Stanford in the NCG.
Who knows, either way it’s not the end of the world.
