That should say 2011 not 2012. Sorry for the typo.
Where’s my glasses?

As someone who has been beating a very loud the drum for a college football playoff since even before I came around these parts more than three years ago, today is a red-letter day.  Something, to be perfectly honest, I never thought I’d see without some type of intervention from the federal government.

In essence, the leaders in college football Thursday formally endorsed a four-team playoff.  And officially placed the Bowl Championship Series on life support, with plans to pull the plug beginning with the 2014 season.

Automatic qualifiers?  Dead, although it’s still to be determined whether that’s good or bad for those outside the power conferences.  A plus-one, in which a title game is held after all of the bowl games have been played?  Dead as well, meaning there will be a true playoff in college football, bringing it in line with every other major sport in the…

THE 2012 NCAA football and men’s basketball CHAMPIONS are proof that you don’t have to win your conference to be NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!!!

Well, it’s official. What many predicted might happen for the last couple of weeks has come to fruition. The SEC is going to win it’s sixth straight BCS national title (or, lose its first depending on how you look at it). No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama will meet in the championship game on Jan. 9 following up on one of the most controversial endings to the regular season since the BCS was unfortunately brought into this world in 1998.

That means no national title shot for No. 3 — and Big 12 champion — Oklahoma State, which is .0086 percent behind Alabama in the BCS average. The Cowboys will be playing No. 4 Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 2 instead in what could be one of the most interesting games of the postseason.

The question is, will it be enough to push them into the No. 2 hole in the final BcS rankings when they’re released at 8:15 ET Sunday night?

In last week’s release of the USA Today coaches’ poll, Oklahoma State was sitting in fifth, 166 points behind No. 2 Alabama.  A week later, Oklahoma State is at No. 3 and, more importantly, just 32 points behind the Tide.

The coaches’ poll is one of three elements the BcS uses to determine its rankings, the other two being the Harris poll and the average of six computer models.  In order for the Cowboys to jump the Tide in the final BcS rankings, and given the current coaches’ poll and four of the six computers projected to have OSU at No. 2, BcS expert Jerry Palm predicts that OSU will need to finish with five more points than UA in the…
