After Texas whacks Bucky on Monday, maybe all the Big 10 apologists will wake up and smell the coffee. USC destroyed the vaunted Penn State defense in just one half, then let up.
BTW, a playoff won't solve anything. There will still be what if's, and woulda-coulda-shoulda played this team or that team, seeding arguments, non-BCS conference winners vs. at large BCS schools getting in.
We need fewer bowl games, with all the big ones played 12/31 and Jan. 1. Then a plus-one based on a BCS final poll. No one year will always be perfect, but over time, it will even out.
