Don't listen to ESPN
I'm tired of the garbage that ESPN/ABC is spitting out about the BCS. I saw the Game Day crew going on about how this was such a great set of bowl matchups, and Musberger saying how great the Paterno/Bowden matchup is (FSU is 8-4 remember). They're obviously doing everything they can to entice viewers to watch. Now Pat Forde adds this column about how the "retro look" of the bowls:
Notre Dame-Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl offers an embarrassment of tradition and an enticing matchup of irresistible force against immovable object. We feel Oregon's pain -- and, by extension, the Pacific-10's, which was muscled out of a second BCS bid for a second straight year -- but any chance to put these two Cadillac programs together is good for college football."embarrasment of tradition," "good for college football?" Are you kidding me??!! Why can't things be decided on the field like every other level of college football and most other sports. The BCS and bowl system turns football into figure skating where judges already know who they're going to pick before the performance is over (I'm not much of a figure skating fan if you can tell).
