Boise State

This is a public service: If you didn't see the Boise State-Oklahoma game and then somehow missed the highlights, here's a brief montage of what was certainly the best football game in the last year and certainly ranks somewhere on the all-time list. It's only 2:30 long and you owe it to yourself to watch.

There are larger implications from this--or at least there should be. There is no compelling reason Boise State shouldn't be in the national title game instead of Florida. And if the Powers That Be in college football want to avoid a playoff system and keep the BCS, then they ought to mandate that if a team goes unbeaten, then they go to the championship team--and if that means that you get Boise State playing Utah every once in a while, then so be it.

The point of this dictum would be to force the big-conference schools to play the Boise States of the world during the regular season, giving the small-conference powers a chance to prove whether or not they're legitimate contenders. As it stands, the current system is ridiculous.
