So, after all that BCS kvetching the system got it right.
Michigan is the rightful No. 2 team in the land but they also played Ohio State in the season's final game. There's just something bad about all but a handful of rematches in sports and the BCS Gods smartly avoided that one.
We also get a traditional --if uninspiring-- Rose Bowl.
And we have suddenly annoying but damn good coach Urban Meyer on the brink of a championship in his second season.
Plus: the USC haters get to relax for at least one season as they coughed away a gimme against UCLA.
Things aren't so bad.
Best of all, it's now bowl season. Let the good times roll.
