A BUNCH OF BCS
Well, those who wanted OU to beat OSU got their wish.
I was actually hoping for the other way around, which was the only way UT could've stayed above the Sooners in the BCS poll.
Even though the final regular season BCS won't be out for another seven hours, it's a foregone conclusion which Big 12 team will have the highest BCS ranking. One of the half-dozen or so BCS computer polls has already been released, and OU is above the Longhorns.
That'll put the Sooners up against Missouri in another bloodbath in the Big 12 championship game and assure them they stay at No. 2 and face Florida (who WILL beat Alabama next week) for the national title.
You could hear by the sound bytes that Mack Brown hated that the Big 12 had a conference championship game, and even though he never mentioned it, I got the feeling he didn't care about not playing in it as long as Oklahoma wasn't there.
The comments of Brent Musburger and company last night also foretold an OU victory in the polls. Before OU poured it on the Cowboys (while it was still close) they were all about Texas deserving it, and then once the 60-point level was hit they said they would be shocked if OU wasn't picked ahead of Texas.
Well, one bit of solace Colt McCoy and his team can take after it's all over is that they actually beat the national champion.
I didn't say it was a lot of solace.
P.S. Another thing that chaps my hide is that this probably means Colt won't get the Heisman. That trophy is supposed to be about something that transcends points and victories, but it generally comes down to winning - and Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow get one more chance to win a game ... and pile up the points while doing it.
P.P.S. As you can see, I am trying the double-reverse jinx tactic. Hey, it could work.
