The BCS Tries To Manufacture A Little Drama (UPDATE)

We're about an hour away from the BCS selection show. Is there any chance the national title game will feature anyone other than Alabama or Texas?

No. There's no chance.

That's the problem with computers. They're so predictable. But how about the other BCS Bowls? Let's look at three prognosticators' bowl projections.

Brad Edwards, ESPN:

BCS Title Alabama versus Texas
Rose Bowl Ohio St. versus Oregon
Fiesta Bowl TCU versus Boise State
Orange Bowl Ga. Tech versus Iowa
Sugar Bowl Florida versus Cincinnati

Dennis Dodd, CBS Sports:

BCS Title Alabama versus Texas
Rose Bowl Ohio St. versus Oregon
Fiesta Bowl TCU versus Boise State
Orange Bowl Ga. Tech versus Iowa
Sugar Bowl Florida versus Cincinnati

Stewart Mandel, Sports Illustrated:

BCS Title Alabama versus Texas
Rose Bowl Ohio St. versus Oregon
Fiesta Bowl TCU versus Boise State
Orange Bowl Ga. Tech versus Iowa
Sugar Bowl Florida versus Cincinnati

Notice any patterns? So yeah, we're pretty much set. But make your contrarian predictions in the comments, and I'll be back with an update should anything absurd happen.

UPDATE: So it was written, so it came to pass. Interestingly, in the final BCS standings, Texas was number 2 in the Harris Poll and USA Today Poll...but behind Cincinnati in the computer rankings. Just sayin'.

Another weekend in the books. It's getting cold out there, so snuggle up with Tommy, Dash and Daulerio tomorrow.
