Congratulations to Boise State for winning its second national championship in three years. What an amazing accomplishment for Chris Petersen and his program. Incidentally, what are Dan Hawkins and Dirk Koetter doing right now?
Honestly, I have no interest in watching the Alabama vs. Texas game on Thursday night. That game will be anti-climatic. There are people who believe that Boise State and TCU could not hang with Alabama and Texas.
Those people are idiots.
Texas would not score on Boise State or TCU. For all of the love the 'mid-majors' of college football get running gimmick offenses and trick plays, they do play really good defense. The Long Horns were shutdown by one guy and should have lost in the Big XII championship game.
And the Crimson Tide? I saw all that I needed to see last year when Alabama was mud-holed by Utah in the Sugar Bowl. You can argue that Alabama was not 'into it,' but I can only judge by what I see on the field. Alabama is overrated. Not to play the common opponent game but ...
Tennessee nearly beat Alabama. UCLA beat Tennessee. Do you think the Bruins are good?
Oregon looked pretty good this year, and Boise State shut them down.
The thought that college has these super power conferences is a notion as antiquated as the wishbone in college football.
Boise State has won two BCS bowl games. Utah has a nice bowl victory. Only Hawaii was overmatched.
The two best teams played on Monday night, and the best team won.
Now, there are some of you that do not like college football. That these bowl games are really exhibitions. And you know, what. You have a point.
Because the Colts have put up a pretty good effort recently. The Patriots lost Wes Welker in a near meaningless game. And look here, the first round of the NFL playoffs have three rematches of Week 17. Yeah, the NFL has awesome games this time of year, too.
The Bengals looked like they would have rather of been any place else on Sunday night. You know once that game was flexed into the night game, the Bengals were planning on laying down. At least 85 tried to get some interest going, yet he ended up falling down during pregame warmups and taking himself out of the game.
The Chargers tried to mail it in, yet the Redskins were so inept, there was no possible way for San Diego to lose. And it was January, so it could have lost.
You know, moving this to Tuesday because Week 17 was such an epic fail, I cannot even remember what else happened.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: How much trouble with Broncos coach Josh McDaniels be in if Brandon Marshall's dad worked for ESPN?
HERE IS what USC was saying to the NCAA with its ridiculous self-imposed sanctions of the basketball program: Please do not touch our football program.
AND FINALLY, Ohio State did good, beating Oregon. Does this erase all of the previous embarrassments? Not really. But the Big Ten and Mountain West were two conferences that really helped themselves during the bowl season. The Big East and Pac-10, not so much.
So Buckeyes fans -- or just WCT -- take the floor, that was an amazing win.
And Terrelle Pryor looked amazing. Imagine who great he would be playing for Oregon. Wow.
