Hard To Believe
I can't believe that the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback went 4 for 14 for a grand total of 35 yards. The Buckeye offense looked completely unprepared. And the coaching staff failed to make any meaningful adjustments as the game progressed. My one consolation is that my father-in-law, who was looking forward to this contest, didn't miss anything. I'm going to go visit him in the ICU right now and can declare, with a clean conscience, that this was a good BCS Championship to sleep through. After the first quarter, it was all downhill. That had to be the most boring second half I've seen in years. Thank the Almighty for that Boise State-Oklahoma game, which I'm presently duping over my memory of tonight's debacle. Again, though: Heisman winner Troy Smith threw for 35 yards. How is that possible?

Do you happen to have the Boise St. game on tape? I only saw the first half (ugh).

I was being metaphoric, alas. It was amazing. I'm sure ESPN will show it again.

I didn't pay much attention to college ball, as usual, this year. But I watched up til the 4th quarter tonight. One thing that was mentioned was that Ohio really didn't play anyone this year save for Michigan. Your take?

They beat Texas, but that was it. I guess the Big Ten was weaker than people realized, since Michigan got clobbered, though less completely, by USC in the Rose Bowl.

Yeah, a lot of people were saying how the Gators had a really difficult season--they were scheduled to play some of the best teams. Maybe it was true, after all!

For some reason I had to watch the second half, just in case something happened, but yes, that was the boringest thing ever. I should have been sleeping instead. And when I heard that Troy Smith only threw 35 yards I sort of cringed. WHAT HAPPENED TO OHIO? Everyone I ran into yesterday, even my students, expected Ohio to win.

I've seen other hyped teams get blown away, but this might qualify as the most total domination yet. I mean, the team managed only 82 yards total!

What I really want to know is, when did watching football become interesting to me?

82 yards aside from the kickoff return, that is.
