TCU 21, Wisconsin 19
So last night the little Texas Christian University beat the mighty Wisconsin Badgers. The TCU football team didnt just get a win for the TCU football team. It wasnt even a win just for the university.
TCU's win over the BCS Wisconsin team was a win for every non automatic qualifying team who each year gets screwed over.
Think back to last year. To avoid another colossal upset of an automatic qualifying team to a non BCS team, the asshats over in the BCS made undefeated Boise State play undefeated TCU.
This year, with only one non BCS team making a bowl, the people at the BCS had to put TCU against an AQ school. They picked the top one loss team in the country, Wisconsin.
I think TCU's win should cement the fact that the small universities can play and bet the big boys.
Now lets talk about Boise State.
Sure they lost to 19 Nevada. But let us remember this: Nevada is a one loss team that should have been a top ten team. Nevada only one because the Boise State kicker missed two easy field goals that each would have won the game.
Im not saying Boise State should have made one of the BCS bowls. But Im saying that they are still a damn good team and I would still pick them over Oregon and Auburn.
It seems like the people at the BCS agree with me that Boise State was still a threat, regardless of their one loss. So, to avoid further embaressment, the one loss Boise State team was forced to play Utah in a minor, early bowl game.
