The curse of the top spots in the BCS poll continued last night with Pitt upsetting West Virginia and Oklahoma defeating Missouri for a second time this year.
Part of me had to laugh when I heard Pitt had won. There were so many "experts" who said that Pitt had no shot and that West Virginia would run them out. I have to admit that I loved hearing that West Virginia blew their shot to play for it all. Kind of fitting and congratulations to Pitt.
Meanwhile, now the debate comes up as to who should play for it. If you go by the poll last week, Ohio State and Georgia would move up. And neither team is deserving.
Ohio State plays in a sorry conference. Vanderbilt could be undefeated in the Big 10.
Georgia doesn't deserve a shot. They didn't even win the SEC Championship. They didn't even go to the game.
I'm not sure who I'd put in the title game right now--but I do know who I wouldn't.
