If UCLA hadn’t blitzed the USC Trojans, Florida wouldn’t have had the opportunity to show what it could do Monday night. And what it could do was impressive.
Here are some stories from around the nation, including USA Today’s story, the LA Times piece, Bud Withers’ column in the Seattle Times, a Michael Wilbon piece from the Washington Post and this story from the Oregonian.
Just remember, if UCLA hadn’t defeated USC, the Trojans would have won their third national title in four years. Is there anyone out there who, after watching Ohio State play and after watching Southern Cal demolish Michigan, doesn’t think USC would have destroyed the Buckeyes as well?
The best national championship game would have been Florida vs. USC. But the only way we are ever going to get the best national championship game is to institute a 16-team playoff. But it may never happen, at least in my lifetime – but very little will change over the next three weeks anyhow.
