If it's the first Sunday in December, then it must be time to bitch about the Bowl Championship Series. With three major undefeated teams, someone was going to get screwed. Unfortunately for Auburn, they were the screwee, mostly because they started the season behind USC and Oklahoma in the polls.
But honestly, I'm not a fan of any of the big undefeated three. I don't really care who plays for the mythical national championship. No, what I really care about is the fact that the sanctity of the Rose Bowl has once again been destroyed. Texas is playing in the Rose Bowl. Texas?!?!? This is sick and wrong people. Sick and wrong. The Rose Bowl is played between the Big Ten and the Pac-10.
College football sacrificed its great traditions for the sake of declaring a national champion. Of course, the system they devised has ended up not producing champions and has destroyed those great traditions. Way to go.
I truly wish the Rose Bowl would just exclude itself from the entire BCS. Let the SECs and Big 12s play their stupid rematches in championship games. Let them go to their random bowls that aren't anywhere near as good as the Rose Bowl.
I'd rather go to the Rose Bowl than win some silly corporate sponsored not-really national championship any day.

The only travesty here is that Utah is in a BCS bowl at all. I'd be perfectly happy spending New year's on Bourbon Street and letting Cal have the Rose Bowl.
