NEW ORLEANS -- With the 2007 football season complete, here's the game plan for 2008:
Jim Tressel's Ohio State team has lost back-to-back games for the BCS national championship.
We need border patrols along Interstate 10, from Jacksonville to Pensacola. A Coast Guard blockade at Biscayne Bay. And the FAA should redirect all inbound flights to South Florida from Ohio.
If you see a silver helmet and a sweater vest coming, contact authorities.
Because next year's BCS National Championship Game will be played in Miami, and the Ohio State Buckeyes aren't invited. Especially if the Southeastern Conference champion is invited.
If you've ever seen lions maul a water buffalo, you've seen the last two title games. You've seen a fierce pair of SEC teams -- Florida last year, LSU this year -- blow the vulnerable Buckeyes back to the Bratwurst Belt by a combined 41 points. You've seen the best of one league flex, and the best of an inferior league collapse

How ‘bout that SEC football
The “O” stands for OVER rated. The record of Big 10 teams against SEC is what? 0 for 9 tries since the BCS inception?
LMAO! Ohio State - The Bitches of the SEC!
USC would have beaten both teams.
What IS it with the BCS poobahs that they simple HAVE to have Ohio State in the championship game if at all possible?
Under appreciated to say the least. These boys know how to play football. I wonder when the pundits are going to get it? The SEC as been whoopin' a$$ for a long time.
P.S. My "Mutt the Hoople" is a play on words because I'm a Mississippi State fan.
This is hugh and series. Scarmable.
The reason Ohio State keeps getting into the Championship game is they play in the Big 10. Their Non-Conference schedule are usually cup cakes and the Big 10 is the most overrated conference in the country. LSU cleaned Ohio States clock and USC creamed the only team to have beat them in conference play (Illinois). It’s true Michigan beat FL, but that was an emotional game saying goodbye to Coach Carr when they played over their head.
If USC had not lost their QB for a few games they would have run the table. Their D was great and their running backs are friggen scary.
You’re on crack.
Hey, at least they’re good at proving who the real national champion is. Be careful of what you wish for. If you don’t have a Big 10 team around to schedule as a Designated Victory in a bowl game, you might actually have to play somebody who could beat you.
I beg to differ. I believe USC would not even have done as well as OSU last night. LSU is not Stanford or Illinois.
I believe you are correct. They have by far the deepest talent of any team in the country. Expect them to be right there again next year.
I think Pete should call the LSU coach and have a scrimmage at a local high school to show you how wrong you are.
When SC is healthy, they beat everyone.
