Am I the only one tired of the fans of mid-major conferences and the whining every year about not getting a fair bowl bid? Here's some reality: you're team is not good enough to compete with the majors, hence the "mid-major" label. Boise State did me a favor and further proved my point losing to TCU last night. The Broncos, the anointed darling of mid-major backers everywhere, showed me exactly what they are: a few points and a few players shy and competiting at the highest level of NCAA BCS conference football. Yes, I know, they SHOCKED Oklahoma a few years back. Well that was not a great Oklahoma team and it Boise State's best effort and a few Oklahoma miscues for the game to go to OT. They play that game again 5 more times I doubt Oklahoma loses any of those. The only mid-major conference I give any respect to is the MAC, because they're not afraid to travel out of conference to take on a great team, not a middle of the road team (see Boise State at Oregon this year). The MAC also has players that actually can play on Sunday and not just on special teams. You put these mid-major darlings in a REAL conference and most wouldn't be bowl eligible. So as I look forward to Utah getting the chit kicked out of them by Alabama I will wonder where the chants of "unfair" will go.
