Sportscaster Brent Musburger didn't hide who he was rooting for on Monday night.

Third-ranked Boise State continues to win over the hearts of millions across the country with its Cinderella-like story.

The Broncos upset Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. They beat TCU at the same location last year when both teams were left out of the title game. On Labor Day, Boise achieved the trifecta against 10th-ranked Virginia Tech.

Though the Broncos have a growing fanbase, their success angers others.

As soon as the game ended, Twitterers and sports bloggers discussed how Boise had justified its spot in the BCS title game in Glendale, Ariz. 

Since when did one quality victory validate a shot at a national championship?

Idaho. Wyoming. Nevada.

Those are some of the upcoming conference games out of the Western Athletic Conference. While teams such as Alabama face ranked teams every Saturday, the Broncos worry about beating opponents by 30 points or more to prove their prowess. 

Oregon State is considered the only other difficult game on the schedule.

The Beavers lost their first game by nine points to fourth-ranked TCU. With the defeat, Oregon State dropped out of the rankings. 

What happens if Miami, which was ranked No. 13 in the preseason standings, runs the table with victories over Ohio State, Georgia Tech, and Pittsburgh?

Aren't the Hurricanes more deserving of a spot in the title game because of their strength of schedule? 

Cinderella wasn't supposed to cause problems or make people despise her, but that's what's slowly happening in college football with Boise State.
