BCS & the National Championship

So far the BCS games have proved the point that a FBS Championship Tournament could be held for the top 8 teams in the country.  The 3 BCS bowl games have been great contests.  The Rose Bowl,  won by #6 Oregon 45-38 over #9 Wisconsin,  was a very entertaining game with both teams slugging it out until the very end.  The Fiesta and Sugar Bowls have been won in overtime by #3 Oklahoma State and # 12 Michigan. 

These first 3 games have been a pretty good argument for the NCAA going to an 8 team tournament,  spread over 3 weeks,  to crown the National Champion.  Of course some seasons you will see some terrible match-ups but I think in the long run you get a true test of which is best team in the land. 

Will be interesting to see how tonight's Orange Bowl between #23 West Virginia and #14 Clemson and the BCS Championship between #1 LSU and #2 Alabama play out.
