BCS National Championship

Just a little note to let everyone know that I am glad LSU kicked the crap out of Ohio State last night.

First, at least it makes our 49-7 debacle of a loss to LSU earlier in the season look slightly more respectable, at least we got steam rolled by the #1 team in the country, not some unranked no-body like Standford-USC.

Second, I always try to root for the ACC for conference loyalty, but if I had to root for anyone else it would be the SEC.  I think we can all agree that the SEC is a powerhouse football conference and always has been. Year after year they have some of the best teams in the nation.  Although I’m not a fan of LSU, especially after they embarassed our program on the national stage, I would root for them over Ohio State anyday.

Third, this just proves how weak the Big 10 conference really is.  Two years in a row Ohio State has been hyped to no end and made it to the Championship game only to crumble to the lower ranked team.   Might I also point out that two years in a row they have been slaughtered by SEC teams. (one more point in the bucket for the SEC).   If the ACC ever dissolves due to lack of talented football programs I would hope the SEC would be our next step.

Good job LSU!  Thank you for telling all those midwest buckeye wanna bes (*most buckeye fans did not attend Ohio state, but just happen to live in Ohio…lame!) to go home!   Thank you for making your trounching of VT all the more respectable, we needed that slight boost after our poor showing in the Sugar Bowl.

My one hope for next year…VT to rip open the lead in the ACC, make it to the Orange Bowl again, or better yet the National Championship only to play against LSU and get some redemption, but again, congrats to all you LSU Tiger Fans, if only you would stop chanting that annoying “Tiger Bait” thing we might actually be friends.

Frank Beamer for President 2008!  I believe!

  1. I will refer you to my comment on October 16, 2007 (https://mariajd.wordpress.com/2007/10/14/what-the-bleep-is-going-on-w-college-football/#comments):

    “I still think LSU is by far the best team in the country. They’ll end up winning the national championship this season… put it in the book.”

    I’m a genius.

    On another note, here are a couple of additional quotes from my semi-angry email exchanges with college buddies last Friday:

    “Anyone who harbored any illusions about Virginia Tech winning a national championship any time soon should have been disabused of that notion last night.”

    “The main thing that will keep [VT fans] from going crazy is a healthy dose of realism. As long as we know that our ceiling will be as a 10 win team that will challenge for the ACC crown year in and year out, we’ll be fine. But every few years or so, we get tricked into believing that we’re right on the doorstep of winning a national championship. I’m totally guilty of it, but I’ve got to stop falling for that trap.”


  2. Now I wouldn’t go as far as “genius”, but you are definitely wise in the ways of college football. I had a feeling LSU would win all season too.

    I am definitely smart enough to not think we are capable of winning a National Title every season. Yes it would be great if we got that far, but I’m realistic. I’m happy with winning the ACC. If only we could stop there and end the season on a high note instead of being embarrassed and disappointed in the post season bowl game year in and year out.


  3. Sure, the SEC was the best conference this year but are they that much better than everyone else? The conference runner up lost to a Cal team that didn’t finish in the top half of the Pac-10. Auburn lost to a less than stellar USF team and the team some argued was actually the best – Florida – lost to Michigan. Sure, these are just a few examples and there are many good wins for the SEC, LSU over VT being one of them.

    Again, I’m not saying that the SEC isn’t the best I’m just saying they are not faster than everyone else and they still play football.

    What else we learned from this bowl season, Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech should be banned from the BCS next year.


  4. Ok, I admit the SEC had their fair share of hardships this year as well. Heck, did any one conference or team for that matter even deserve to win the national championship after the season we just went through. I have never seen more upsets in college football than I have in this season.

    Maybe they should just void the national championship this year. I wonder if Kentucky and Arkansas can argue for a share since they managed to knock of LSU in the regular season.

    I’m just looking forward to 2008, although Flowers will be missed hopefully it’ll be a good season. another run at the ACC title is good enough for me. I don’t set my hopes much higher than that.


  5. Ohio State is now 4-2 in BCS bowls, or something similar to that. They definitely have a winning record. They should be disqualified from the championship game, not BCS bowls.

    However, Oklahoma and the entire ACC should be disqualified from the BCS altogether.


  6. I agree with you Eric, but one team is always bound to get in the orange bowl just by winning the ACC now matter how bad we are, so good luck disqualifying us.


  7. Under the current rules, that is true. However, if the ACC continues to be a pathetic conference with a dismal performance in BCS bowl games, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see the rules changed.

    Trivia question: When was the last time an ACC team won a BCS bowl?
