Well, I eat crow today, and was tempted to delete the above, but my honest side prevailed (grin)....
Sabin can sure motivate those guys, and now its the best of worlds for SEC folks and especially LSUtootnanny.
If USC wins, we will have two national champs, and a total mockery and ridicule of the whole BCS thing, and deservedly so. I genuinely look forward to the RoseBowl being a "second" title game for much of the country, especially the West, Midwest, and East. LSU will love the sugar bowl, and if they play as they did against UGA, they will whip Oklahoma, and be the BCS champ, and share a partial national championship. The only way the SugarBowl champ wins national championship uncontested is if Michigan upsets USC. I have watched both teams a lot this year (you'd be amazed how many PAC10 games we get in the midwest), and despite my Midwest roots, I think USC will tear Michigan apart unless something miraculous happens. Can't ever accuse me of being a "homer", (grin) just an avid sports fan.
Retro fever is wonderful though, the most traditional of all RoseBowls is back. Huzza, huzza, the BCS oversight committee is scrambling to recover any semblance of logic, huzza, huzza again, and a shared national championship mocks the very reason for the BCS's awkward existence, so I do hope USC prevails on this count alone for the health of college football.
For a while, all is well with the world. Now if we can only get this NotreDame thing worked out I might begin to believe we live in a sane universe (grin)
ps in the late pm. Just read in my local paper that USC has the most RoseBowl appearances, 29, with Michigan second at 19. What a heritage... Now if we could only get NotreDame motivated in joining the RoseBowl circuit....
