Two teams, two colleges and two states I don’t give two …. well you get the picture.
This is not like USC-Texas in 2005, when I was openly celebrating a California-Texas rivalry — even though I don’t care for Southern California much. It doesn’t have the allure of that hype.
Yes, it’s the national championship, so the fervor is always there. But the fandom is lacking. These BCS games don’t feel like real championships. And as long they’re decided by some computer and a subjective voting process, they’ll always feel questionable.
So I really could care less who wins. But with that being stated, I do hope that Alabama pulls it out and smashes the Longhorns. Nothing against Colt McCoy, but I hate Texas. There’s something weird about that state. I used to joke with a college professor of mine that everything weird happens in either Texas or Florida. I wasn’t that far off from being right.
Tune in, 8 p.m. EDT (5 p.m. PDT) on ABC to see who wins between Texas and Alabama in the BCS “National Championship.” I’ll be live tweeting the game from home. Follow me at @addisports.
