Alligator Shoes

It was all Gators last night for the mythical national championship. It was a pretty tight deadline for me since the game didn't officially end until about 10 and I had to have the cartoon in by 11 p.m. . I'd been thinking during the game and trying to formulate ideas as the action unfolded. I kind of have to do that during a short deadline like this. Anyway, I arrived at the cartoon above simply because the game was a cakewalk for Florida. The shoes just seemed to work.

I still prefer the whole idea of a playoff system. I finally caught the Boise State replay on FSN and I'd love to see them get a legitimate chance to face Florida for the whole thing. But I'm afraid we're stuck with this BCS junk for years to come. Oh, well. A little wishful thinking never hurts.

    They should just do the plus one bowl and call it the American Idol Bowl and have fans/coaches/media vote for who gets to play for the National Championship. But then we wouldn't have gotten the Gators trampling Ohio State this year. Or teams like Boise State could just demand teams in there conference improve or move themselves and elect to play a tougher schedule and take care of it themselves. I'm sure they like it better this way though where all they have to do is win one tough game and talk about getting ripped off the rest of their lives along with everyone else not getting invited to the championship game. And isn't that what college football is really all about?

    I'm not saying Boise State should be #1, but they did beat a couple good teams, (Oregon State, Hawaii, San Jose State & Oklahoma). If they would have played the top 5 teams they probably would have been 0-5. But the real news is can Hawkin's do to the Buffs what he did to the Bronco's?

    Yeah, you want an indication as to the path of the Colorado Buffaloes....How 'bout them Boise St. Broncos. Give Hawkins some time, he'll have CU winning regularly again.
