The BCS Championship: It Was Just a Bad Dream

From the beginning, Texas came out on a mission.  The Crimson Tide looked stunned and we all knew it was going to be a long night, until...

The unthinkable happened.

The Longhorns' star quarterback, Colt McCoy, was injured on a botched version of something we've all seen Tebow attempt (and survive) a million times. 

If Alabama thinks this is a true victory, it will give new meaning to the word "delusional."  Beating up on a true freshman quarterback hardly constitutes anything remotely close to being the BCS champion.  But, of course, this is only my opinion.  I'm sure there will be a great deal of you who wish bad things upon me.  Wish away.

It's times like these I can only pray for a Delorean.  I'm still waiting for Christopher Lloyd to pop up out of nowhere and explain what needs to be done before I shoot off at 88 mph.  Unfortunately, this is reality and even more unfortunate than that...the Alabama Crimson Tide are National Champions.

With that being said, there is no blaming the BCS.  There is no whining about a playoff.  There is nothing.  Nothing but the fact that this is football and sometimes bad things happen.

We usually see it happen in the most irrelevant of games.  Quarterback goes down and you have some time to figure things out.  You throw in your scrub backup and hope to make it through the rest of the night.  But what are the chances of this?  The biggest game of the year and you lose your QB within mere minutes?  Really?

Sadly, we will never know the real champion of the 2009-2010 football season.  It's fine if you want to disagree, but it's true.  

But, a win is a win even with fate on your side.  Congratulations, Alabama, you are the champions...?
