Bowl Championship Screwed-upWell, leave it to USC to ruin the BCS National Championship picture by losing to UCLA yesterday. With USC out of the picture with two losses, the question now comes to the table as to who should face Ohio State in the National Championship Game January 8th.
The choices are 11-1 Florida, the newly crowned SEC Champion, and 11-1 Michigan, whose only loss is to Ohio State. I am partial to Florida because the Gators won their conference, Michigan did not do so. Then there is the notion that Michigan and Ohio State already played at the end of the regular season and Ohio State settled that score.
Granted, it would help the Big Ten if it had a 12th team so that it could split into divisions and have a Championship Game similar to the SEC. If it did, Michigan would not likely be in any position to remain in contention for a national title after losing to the Buckeyes.
We'll all find out tonight when the BCS Bowl selections are formally announced at 8pm Eastern. For the record, the Coaches poll has Florida in the number two spot.
