If there was ever a more enjoyable football game -- and Super Bowl 37 is the only one that comes close -- ever?
The mid-majors have longed asked to be included into the big time. To be taken seriously. To be given a chance to compete with the big boys. That is what made March Madness one of the best sporting events ever.
And it apparently scares the hell out of the college football powers.
But the six major BCS conferences believed that they were going to be able to put one of those uppity mid-major schools in its place when Oklahoma played Boise State in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.
But of course, they forgot that Bob Stoopes was still the coach of the Sooners.
We all know how this story goes. Boise State gets big lead. Boise State blows lead. Miracle finish. Ian Johnson proposes to his girl friend. The end.
