So who got hosed in this BCS? My money is between Texas and Florida. Because of Florida's November game with Citadel, it kept them from moving up in the BCS. And because of the Horns' stumble in Lubbock, Texas is getting the shaft. It's hard to believe, but it's true.

Texas lost 39-33 to Tech three weeks ago, and Oklahoma defeated Texas Tech 65-21 in Norman. Texas beat Oklahoma State 29-24 in Austin, while Oklahoma defeated the Cowboys in Stillwater 61-41. But because of Oklahoma's win over the Red Raiders, Texas felt the anal-pounding and reach-around that the BCS delivered.

Even though 45-35 was the final in Dallas, Texas actually lost the game due in large part to the ending to this latest BCS Controversy. I truly feel for the Longhorns this time around, but in all actuality, they have a legitimate beef. Screw the fact that Sooners fans continue to tell you to quit whining. What Oklahoma should be worried about is which team is going to stun, shock and beat them in the BCS Bowl Game this season.

Because everytime the BCS gave the Sooners the nod, they came up short everytime. Don't believe it? Just ask Boise State, USC and LSU.
