So, did Michigan get screwed? Should it be the Wolverines facing the Buckeyes for all the marbles? I think in terms of what team has the best chance to beat the Buckeyes, then yes it would be the Wolverines. However with their win over Arkansas yesterday, I do believe that the Gators do deserve to be #2 and thus face the Buckeyes in the championship. I think the Rose Bowl should be a game not to miss also with some potent offenses taking the field. The Sugar Bowl could be renamed the overrated bowl as I’m not sure either of these teams deserved a BCS game in my opinion. Another interesting game to watch will be the Fiesta Bowl. All year long Boise State has said that they deserved more respect and to be considered with the top teams. We’ll see if they are correct when they face a good OU team. As for the Orange Bowl, I’m sure it will get overlooked by many as Wake Forest and Louisville don’t appear to be the most marketable teams. However I think Louisville is one the top teams in the nation so tune in to this too. I’ll make my official predictions closer to the actual games.

So what do you think? Who got screwed? What games are you most looking forward to? Are you happy with the National Championship? Tell me whatcha think dude.

the great Petros Papadakis had a great point. He said that if Michigan and OSU played again and Michigan won, then OSU would just say "so what? now we're even" and we would still have controversy over who the champ is.

Hopefully Earnest Graham and Terry Glenn fight. Terry Glenn will win because Earnest has no awareness.
