The BCS is a case of "if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with." Face it, college football fans, we're not getting a playoff anytime soon. In the meantime, the BCS isn't the miserable failure that it's portrayed to be. So says Russell Levine in this week's edition of Confessions of a Football Junkie.

They finally got to pop the champagne in Miami. Unlike in previous seasons, the Colts did not lose because of a leaky defense, they lost because of an offensive line that could not stop what has become a dominant San Diego pass rush. Meanwhile, both teams feature stud running backs that are banged up. One of them should now get some much-needed rest, while the other is likely to get more rest than he wants starting January 1.
