Thank you BCS for giving us great football

Farewell, BCS. You weren’t a great system and at times, we questioned why you exist. But you gave us great games. The BCS Championship game we just witnessed was an amazing game. Texas-USC was amazing. The Rose Bowl this year was fun. Boise State’s upset was phenomenal.

But it’s time for you to go. I bid farewell, but I also thank you for the good and bad times. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun watching these games.

To the new playoff system, we expect great things. This is why we love college football.

Farewell and thank you.

What a game!
