Thanks to the omniscience of the Bowl Championship Series we can officially crown the Louisiana State Tigers as the National Champions Elect of College Football. And while we're at it, let's all give a big thanks to Ohio State for keeping things interesting for a few minutes longer than the last time we did this. Before I could look up from my bacon cheeseburger and Makers Mark (confessed health nut) the whole bar area was cheering, which was weird because Ohio State seemed to have scored...
Indeed, people were backing this scrappy underdog, with their 5.0 40 kick returners and 250 pound tackles. When Chris Wells broke free for the end zone in the game's first minute people were pleased. Of course it was only a matter of time before the school who's state leads the union in per capita NFL products made tears come out of that creepy Buckeye thing.
Ricky Jean-Francois (that's my ferret's name!) was named the defensive player of the game despite not playing all season. Matt Flynn's 4 touchdowns were good for the MVP. He looks forward to a long career as a roofer or real estate salesman depending on how much he drinks. LSU wins 38-24.
