What a Huge Pile of Steaming Poo!!
OK it is that time of year again where I rant about how messed up the BCS is in College Football and predict the outcome of each game. I understand that I have no control over what is done or how it is done, but it makes me feel better and has kind of begun a little tradition. Here we go....
Orange Bowl: Kansas Jayhawks (11-1) vs. Virginia Tech (11-2)
First of all, let me say congrats to Kansas for pulling the wool over every ones eyes this year and beating absolutely no one of any kind of significance. Virginia Tech, kudos to you for doing the same. This should be a good game considering that neither of these teams beat anyone important. Kansas, your most impressive win came against, well, I guess Kansas St. That's how bad your schedule is, I can't even find a big win on it anywhere. VT, your big win was last week against Boston College, the same BC that you lost to earlier in the at home. Both teams have had, what I would call a successful year in past years, however, both leagues in which they play are complete garbage. Therefor, my pick is not an easy one.
Winner: Virginia Tech
Rose Bowl: USC Trojans (10-2) vs. Illinois Fighting Illini (9-3)
Hey guess what? It is a traditional match-up this year for the Rose Bowl. Only one problem, the Big-10 is sending Illinois. Huh?! Illinois, really? What a joke. USC, OK, you have earned it, kind of, with the help of everyone else in the Pac-10. If it wasn't for Arizona St., Cal, and Oregon taking nose dives at the end of the year. As for Illinois, congrats on the win over Ohio St. Too bad it was an over rated Ohio St. team. This game is going to be a blow out.
Fiesta Bowl: West Virginia Mountaineers (11-2) vs. Oklahoma Sooners (11-2)
This could actually be a good game. Oklahoma is coming of a big win against Missouri and WV is coming off a loss but have a great quarterback and running game. Is WV worthy of this Bowl, probably not, but that is what makes the BCS so exciting. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that this game will be a lot like last years Oklahoma bowl game vs Boise St.
Winner: West Virgina
Sugar Bowl: Georgia Bulldogs (11-2) vs Hawaii Warriors (12-0)
Is this year going to another WAC team beating a perennial power? Georgia has been griping about this bowl game so that alone is cause for them to loose and loose big. Everyone says that the WAC is not a strong conference and Hawaii is overrated. They beat an 11-1 Boise St team this year and everyone else they played for that matter. High octane offence with a very accurate QB. I like their chances.
Championship: Ohio St. Buckeyes (11-1) vs. LSU Tigers (11-2)
What a joke. Ohio St has to be the worst choice based on the fact that no one in their league is worth a crap this year and they lost to Illinois. That should be like 3-4 losses alone. LSU may be the best team but no one really knows because they have lost to overtime games. I don't think that I am going to watch this one.
Now if my calculations are correct, if I tally up the wins this is what the records will be after the Bowl games
Virgina Tech (12-2)
West Virginia (12-2)
Ohio St. (11-2)
Now, someone please tell me why it is that there is not a playoff in college football.
