The Florida Gators Are Going to the National Championship!

By Erik Folgate

I had to give a shout-out to my alma mater, the Florida Gator football team, for making it to the national championship game this January 8th in Glendale, Arizona!!!  Say what you will about the imperfect BCS system, but it is all we have right now to determine a champion.  I am a proponent of a playoff.  Why is it that every other sport has a playoff except college football?  Even high school tennis has some sort of playoff/tournament system to determine a champion.  In defense of the Gators, we won the SEC – the toughest conference in the country.  Also, Auburn got robbed out of the championship game in 2004, so the BCS had to give the SEC a chance at the championship this year.  Anyway, I know this has nothing to do with finance, but I just wanted to say, GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!!
