In case you've just beamed down from somewhere in the Antares nebula, there's a game tonight between USC and Texas that will decide the national championship in college football. I could spend the next seventeen paragraphs talking about how it's not a real championship since it's not a playoff system that everyone with any lick of sense can see makes more sense than the current system, but since I've heard that debate at least four times a day on sports talk radio for the past month, I won't add to the problem by rehashing what has been hashed far too often.
Instead, what I will say is--I'm glad that the game is finally upon us because I'm sick of hearing about it. And I love college football. But seriously, the unrelenting hype will, finally, go away. Honestly, I could care less about either team in this contest. I have decided to pull for Texas since fellow blogging buddy Prochein Amy
is a big Texas fan.
But, honestly, at this point, if a huge earthquake occurred and the Rose Bowl sank into the sea, I might not shed a tear about it...except that it wouldn't end the debate of can Texas contain Matt Leinert and Reggie Bush and can USC stop Vince Young. Instead, we'd get Beano Cook on the radio blathering on about whatever the hell it is Beano blathers on about for another six or eight weeks.
