In all due respect to the Florida Gators, nationally-syndicated talk show host Jim Rome was right when he said that Thursday night’s BCS “championship game” was for third place at best.
Although the rules of the seditious Bowl Championship Series say that Florida will be crowned “national champion” by virtue of their 24-14 win over the Oklahoma Sooners Thursday at Miami Dolphins Stadium, that is debatable.
While the BCS’ power brokers say that there is nothing wrong with their system, the fact remains that the only unbeaten team in the nation, the Utah Utes, have been unjustly denied.
The tragedy is that only a lawsuit will humble those simple-minded stooges who say that their system is fine.
In the classic film Ben-Hur, the evil Messala said Rome would never fall. Of course, as any 12th grade student that has paid attention even once in his or her classes can tell you, that proved to be false.
Here’s hoping that the BCS will fall swiftly, as did the once mighty Rome two millennia ago.
