Think of it this way:

If college football had a playoff, we wouldn't be able to make fun of the BCS anymore. So I say we keep the BCS just as it is, which will allow us to continue making a mockery of the thing.

Anyone out there think the Utes should be voted as national champions by the AP?

Personally, I think Florida is going to beat Oklahoma easily and there won't be much question in the end. But 13-0 is 13-0, and the last of them was as dominant a performance as we've seen in any bowl game this season.

No wonder the BCS presidents don't let fans near the big cash register.
