01/04/2005: Gem o'the Day:
This will be the last National Championship Game under the current BCS system, which is true every year because the system is so dumb it has to be overhauled annually.
The current cataclysm stems from the fact that the Associated Press suddenly realized that its writers poll was being used in the BCS formula. AP executives probably hadn't noticed this little factoid because it's only appeared in every single AP college football story since 1996, but as soon as the light came on, they sent a cease-and-desist letter to the BCS, demanding it stop using the AP poll on trademark grounds.
