Well, it’s official folks. USC has just completed one of the biggest choke jobs in college football history. With their spot secure in the BCS Championship game, they fail to beat the lowly UCLA Bruins as 14 point favorites. And as bad as I was feeling with Texas football, this surely brightens my college football season.
The big question now is what will ESPN do for the next month without being able to hype USC? Will they shut down? Will they still go ahead and rank this season’s team against the greatest of all-time? Or will they just focus on the New Orleans Saints and Reggie Bush? Who knows, but it sure feels good to be able to watch SportsCenter again.
Update: It looks like HD Buttercup in West L.A. will be giving away a lot of free furniture. They promised that if you spent at least $2,000 on furniture before kick-off and UCLA wins, everything is free. Bet they weren’t counting on it coming true. Ha.
