Boise State 1, BCS 0

I'm not as convinced as the rest of the chattering class that Boise State really made much of a statement last night by squeaking past Virginia Tech 33-30.

(And what was up with those Tech unis, anyway? They looked like an XFL team, or one of the Miami Sharks' opponents from "Any Given Sunday." I kept expecting He Hate Me to make an appearance).

What was I saying, before I so rudely interrupted myself?

Oh, yeah, Boise State. Just wasn't all that impressed with them. If that's the No. 3 team in the nation, Notre Dame's No. 4. And as Brian Kelly correctly pointed out Saturday, that's a long way from happening just yet.

Still ... I do hope Boise runs the table and gets into the BCS championship game. Anything that throws a wrench into the BCS is, needless to say, a good thing.
