vote for #1
The BCS Bowl show occurred on Sunday and by now we all know that Florida and Oklahoma will play in the title game. I don't really have too much to gripe about with their selections; one could make a case for Texas, but I have a feeling that if Florida wins and Texas beats Ohio State handily, the AP might want to be different and crown their own champion. My biggest gripe is that coaches whos jobs could be on the line or the fact they want to get more money for their conference are allowed to vote and have a say who goes to the BCS Games. Seems like Bo Pelini is getting a little flack. As the for the country as a whole, the championship game wasn't the biggest complaint about the BCS...but you could have fooled the states of Texas and Ohio. The Rose Bowl is another intriguing game in my opinion, even though USC has opened up as a 10 point favorite over Penn State. Both Pete Carroll and Joe Paterno have a lot of respect for each other, and both are known to be great when given weeks to prepare for a game. But I wonder if USC fans are a bit concerned that their own offensive coordinator will be still coaching the game, but officially the new head coach at Washington? Speaking of new coaches, Syracuse still doesn't have one. Skip Holtz is still on the short list, however, a few new names have popped into the picture. We will have a new champion in the FCS ranks, as Appalachian State lost last week. Appalachian State fans are dealing it the best way they know how, saying no one will attend the championship game now that they aren't in it. Finally, the regular season might be over, but the Podcasts are not. On tonight's In The Bleachers' Podcast, Adam and I will pick some award winners and talk about the BCS, so stop by and give us your two cents.
