I’m not sure which of the post-game analysts said it, but the 2003 college football season is summed up with these words: “Any coach who doesn’t vote USC #1 is crazy”. Congrats to SC for their 28-14 victory over Michigan @ the Rose Bowl and for winning at least a share of the national championship. Now, my Sunday night is clear since I don’t need to watch the Nokia “Battle for Second Place” bowl (which I blogged a month ago).
Update: I added a link to a picture my son all decked out in his Trojan gear and smiling wide after winning the national championship (actually, his mother is making faces off camera).
Another Update: I found a great post on the subject of the BCS by Jason Salas via Bryan’s Weblog of Stuff. Jason is a .NET developer and a sportscaster, so his views on the BCS from both sides are facinating (though he did mix up the AP and the Coaches poll).
