Who will win the National Championship?  (Enter the final score in the comments.)

Update 1/8/2007 @ 8:15pm: Welcome Wizbang readers! (I've been in downtown Columbus until now...Sports Mgmt is an OSU fan!) I'll keep the poll open until halftime.

Update 1/8/2007 @ 10:35pm: Ouch. Florida is puttin' a whuppin' on my Buckeyes. Hats of to the Gators. They're prepared, focused, and executing their game plan to perfection, and dominating the game in every phase. The Buckeyes seemed to be making a game out of it, scratching back to 21-14, but the 4th and 1 call (terrible NOT Tressel Ball), and Troy's turnover just killed the Buckeyes.

The poll is closed now...and to me, it's obvious who will win...barring a miracle and the teams reversing personalities in the 2nd half.

Update 1/9/2007 @ 12:07am: Congratulations Florida, on your convincing 41-14 win. This one, as I noted above, was over early. Those 4 early short fields just killed Ohio State. Florida deserved it; they are the National Champions in my book, despite Boise State going undefeated. Another reason for a playoff, College Football Fans.

I'm a Boise State Fan

OK, I thought BSU lost the game twice. Man, did they prove me wrong. Like Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over 'til it's over." I loved the decision to go for two in the first overtime, then they went with the Statue of Liberty and faked out the house to win it. Unbelievable. To top the whole thing off, one of the BSU players asks his cheerleader girlfriend to marry him and she says "Yes" on camera. How can you not love that?

Boise State just stuck it to the B(C)S. They're 13-0 and should have been in the National Championship game.

Just one more reason to have a Playoff System to replace the B(C)S.

I went to bed around midnight and I couldn't turn it off. This was definitely worth staying up to watch, but man will I pay for this tomorrow. I'm NOT getting up at 5:15am to lift. I'm going to wait until after my shift at the Fitness Center at 11:30am.

Thank-you Boise State. That was incredible.

Update 1/2/07 @ 1:41am:
I have to mention what preceded the overtime heroics, because the game summary on Fox doesn't do it justice. Oklahoma State tied the game with about 1:25 left in the game with a touchdown and two-point conversion of their own. Then, OU used a "pick 6" and extra-point to go up by a touchdown. That's where I thought it was all over the first time. Then, BSU scores with 7 seconds left on a hook and ladder play, on 4th down, to tie the game and send it into overtime. OU's Peterson scored on the first play of overtime off tackle and beat everybody to the corner with his 4.2-4.3 speed. That's where I thought it was over for BSU, because I thought that was such a quick score it would take the life out of them. Not so fast, my friend. They got 6 and went for the win right away. What a gamble, nobody else would've had the guts to do that.
