Bruce Feldman posted this on his Twitter feed yesterday:
Boise St has surpassed ND and the SEC as the most polarizing topic in CF right now thanks to BCS critics and irked fans from power confs.
I can’t say that I’ve really noticed that, but I’ll take him at his word about it.
But the comment got me to thinking – if you’re part of ESPN’s production staff, aren’t you quietly rooting for Boise State to beat Virginia Tech on September 6? A Bronco win insures a season-long debate about BSU and the BCS (unless the Broncos turn around a couple of weeks later and crap the bed against Oregon State) that you’ll be more than happy to try to beat to death. Lose, and there’s nothing left with which to stir the pot.
I know which option I’d pick.
