Congratulations to Ohio State, because it would take an awfully savage beating to try to come close to the embarrassment that Penn State suffered in the Rose Bowl. Maybe now, Big Ten will finally have to admit that USC is pretty good at football. You can no longer hide behind the excuse that USC has excelled against the No. 2 team in the Big Ten. USC played the conference's best, and there was no doubt.
Of course, you can still try to spin it that Penn State wasn't as good as some recent Ohio State teams. But you've run out of excuses. Time for the Big Ten to lose it's automatic BCS berth. Not to mention, multiple BCS bids. That should never happen again. (Even if Ohio State miracles a win over Texas.)
Not sure if you notice, either, but the morbid Pac-10 went undefeated during the bowl season. Sometimes, it's not how you start, but how you finish. The Pac-10 took some lumps early this season, but finished pretty well.
