Boise State faced a realty check last night. The Broncos did lose a football game and with it their BCS hopes.
They dodged opponents and BCS haters for a long while this season. Boise was 10-0 but then Mr. L called.
But there is no shame in losing. Outstanding teams do loss. Boise didn’t lose to a cupcake in Nevada. The Pack is a mighty fine club.
America thanks you for the ride. It was fun cheering for you. You will be back. Excellent teams find a way for a return trip. You are an excellent team.
Our favorite underdog is reduced to TCU. The Horned Frogs carry the football for the non-BCS schools’ hopes now. It would be great if they could slide someway, somehow into that No. 2 BCS slot.
Right now, it looks like Oregon-Auburn for the title. But I think a final with TCU would add a little ice cream to the cake.
