Of course West Virginia and Mizzou lost...

How else could this thing shake out, right? The Missouri game is not over yet, but they are gonna lose. Mizzou losing does not surprise me in the least, but I cannot believe WVU lost that game to Pitt. That is just ridiculous. Pat White had gotten hurt, but he did not look great when he was in the game anyway. But where was Steve Slaton? 9 rushes for 11 yards? Stunning. Equally stunning was how blatant the refs were in trying to help WVU win.

With both of the top 2 teams losing, this is chaos. We will now have weeks of debate on what two teams are most deserving to play for the title. The debate is so incredibly open to different opinions that this, not multiple unbeaten deserving teams, is the worst thing that could ever happen to the BCS.

I think, at some point in the season, 50 teams had a chance to distinguish themselves and prove that they deserve to play for the national championship, and no team ever did. That is why this ends in chaos. It is the imperfect storm.

One thing is sure... get ready to be inundated with a billion unoriginal "we need a playoff" articles and diatribes in the sports media. How boring and repetitive. It will be the same, "they need to decide it on the field, how come we can't have one if D2 does it?" Wahh, Wahh, Wahh. I don't care if there is a playoff or not. I like the idea of 1 playing 4 and 2 playing 3, and just having one extra game.

The system is not changing, but this year it is gonna be chaos to end the season. College football has been chaotic all season long, why would it change now? My first inclination is to put Ohio St and LSU in the BCS National Championship and LSU will kill them. Let the arguments begin...
