BCS National Championship Game Poll and Thread

The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California: the site of tonight's BCS National Championship Game - Robert Laberge

The final ever BCS National Championship Game is tonight. Who do you want to win?

Tonight at 7:00 PM Central on ESPN, the No. 1 Florida State Seminoles will face the No. 2 Auburn Tigers for the final installment of the Bowl Championship Series. Can Heisman Trophy Winner Jameis Winston and his undefeated Seminoles end the BCS with a note more common in the series' inception, or will the highly improbable and resilient Auburn Tigers extend the SEC's unprecedented national championship streak to eight?

Tonight's game also ends the oft controversial but never uninteresting Bowl Championship Series, something that was more a patchwork of already established bowl traditions masquerading as a system to accurately and objectively determine the best team in the country than it was, uh, an actual system to accurately and objectively determine the best team in the country. What is set to replace it, a four-team playoff, will assuredly be without controversy and loved by all bitched about ad nauseum until we find yet another flawed system for it to evolve into. That, by the way, is something that I am totally fine with. No championship system we can dream up is without its merits and imperfections. Nothing will be able to satisfy the desires of all who watch the game, whether they be fans, pundits, gamblers, or people with nothing better to do with their Saturday afternoons.

Remember, it's all a dumb money grab anyway.

So join us in saying goodbye to the BCS, and mourning the death of what was a pretty fan-damned-tastic season of college football.

And participate in the poll, will ya? Let us know who you're rooting for and why. Be as detailed or concise as you'd like; it's not like there's a correct answer.
