BCS Guru: It's Ohio State vs. Florida

UCLA's stunning upset of USC has created another controversial finish to the Bowl Championship Series, and when the final BCS rankings are released Sunday, Florida will edge Michigan for the No. 2 spot and a berth opposite Ohio State in the Jan. 8 title game in Glendale, Ariz., the BCS Guru says. The Guru writes: "Despite some shameless campaigning, first by Florida coach Urban Meyer, and then taken to another level by the CBS broadcasters during the SEC championship game, the sentiment against an Ohio State-Michigan rematch is just too great for the BCS voters to move the Wolverines to No. 2. Instead, the Gators will leapfrog Michigan." The system designed to take politics out of college football is coming down to — you guessed it — politics. It will be interesting to pick apart the votes, especially those of the coaches. All this creates the possibility of a split national title and the BCS Guru has it all, so check his site.

my oh my. guess as a BCS hater, this is exactly what i should want to see. the more controversy, the closer we move to a playoff.

Lloyd Carr just got off the phone with me. He was asking how to make a pinata out of Urban Meyer's balls...
