#1 and #2 FALL
So the question remains, who deserves to be playing for the National Title?
We know Ohio State is in it by default by winning the Big Ten. But does Georgia get in despite not winning their own division in the SEC East? LSU won the SEC but got beat by an unranked Arkansas squad at home last week and gave up over 50 points in the process. Kansas lost last week to Missouri. Virginia Tech got destroyed by LSU and won a horrible conference. USC lost to Stanford.
Honestly I don't know who deserves it. Maybe none of those teams deserve a shot at the National Title. What about Hawaii if they beat Washington? They would be the only undefeated team in the nation.
This season has been one huge clusterfuck. My head hurts, I'm going to sleep.
The BCS Apocalypse has begun.

#1 and #2 FALL
LES MILES PRESS CONFERENCE
Miles: "There was misinformation on ESPN and I think it's imperative that I straighten it out. I'm the head coach at LSU, I will be the head coach at LSU, I have no interest in talking to anyone else. I have a championship game to play and I'm excited about the opportunity of my damn strong football team to play in it. And that's really all I'd like to say. It's unfortunate I had to address my team with this information this morning. With that being done, I think we'll be ready to play. There will be no questions for me; I represent me in this issue, please ask me after. I'm busy. Thank you very much, and have a great day."
Miles is playing the $$ game and screwing his alma mater at the same time. Fuck, I hope this never ends...

MICHIGAN'S NEXT COACH
All they have to do is offer him some land in Montana, Lakers Tickets, and a brand new truck along with a substantial raise and you can get a shiny new...
Nothing would shock me now in regards to Michigan football.

MILES TO STAY AT LSU?
Jesus effing Christ, make up your mind you crazy bastard. Either ESPN totally jumped the gun on the previous report or Les Miles is playing head games with everybody.
The latest, as of 1:30 pm is he is staying according to MLIVE
A 1:45 p.m. press conference has been scheduled by LSU prior to today's Southeastern Conference title game between the Tigers and Tennessee to announce the new deal and its terms.
LSU will reportedly make Miles one of the highest-paid coaches in the country.
Earlier in the day, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit reported Miles has agreed to become Michigan's next coach and will be introduced at a press conference next week. Herbstreit also said that Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta would accept the same position on Miles' staff at Michigan.
But LSU and its coach were already putting the finishing touches on a deal to keep him in the SEC.
Stay tuned, apparently nobody wants the Michigan job.

LES MILES AND JON TENUTA TO MICHIGAN
ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit has just confirmed that Les Miles will be named Michigan's head coach next week and is bringing Georgia Tech's defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta with him as the new DC. I'm not a huge fan of Miles and I think his act will get real old with Michigan fans rather quickly but I love the hire of Tenuta. He brings an aggressive, blitzing style of defense that recruits love and players excel in.
UPDATE: THE PIGFUCKERS AT ESPN JUST PULLED THE VIDEO OF HERBIE ANNOUNCING MILES TO MICHIGAN.
So in short, Miles bad but Tenuta very good.
And the Sportscrack gal Ashley approves...
