Who likes complete and utter college football chaos?
Yep, that's what we've got this morning – BCS confusion and chaos.
No. 1 Missouri drowned in the San Antonio Riverwalk, and couches all over
So now, who deserves to play in the national championship game? It figures that No. 3 Ohio State will move up when the final Bowl Championship Standings are released at 7 p.m. today. But the Big Ten champion Buckeyes can only guess who their opponent might be at this point.
Can you just imagine the crazy, confused look on the faces of those coaches and Harris poll voters? Surely they knew that the college football world is relying on them to figure it all out.
Virginia Tech was sixth in the BCS standings last week. Good team. Excellent defense. The Hokies won the ACC title on Saturday, but there aren't many people bragging on the strength of that league.

You can bet the happiest people on earth were Fox television executives. Now, we've all got a reason to tune into today's BCS selection show.
Then, we can start the argument all over again an hour later.
WHO WILL IT BE?
1. LSU (11-2): Any team that wins the SEC title must be considered. Voters have to move the Tigers way up, though.
2. USC (10-2): The Pac-10 champion Trojans can beat anybody right now. USC's November dominance was no fluke.
