I got Georgia in this one. Simply for their defense, who you got?

I'm gonna pick Georgia in this one by 31 points.

The thing made obvious by this game was the line of scrimmage difference. Georgia controlled it on both sides of the ball and therefore won the game. Even though Hawaii didn't have a tough schedula, I don't see this as "proving" they were no good. Bowl blowouts are common and there have been several already this year. Hawaii does have a tougher schedule next year, which will go a long way towards showing their status. When a team is undefeated, regardless of schedule strength it is impressive. How many other teams whose schedule strength was weaker than number 75 on the list went undefeated? Or even just had a 1 loss season? None that I am aware of.

did anyone hear a cash register ring every time colt brennan went back to drop? That sound is all the NFL money Brennan lost with that pitiful performance on the national stage.

Hawaii was finally exposed as frauds, it's unfortunate that GA didn't get to prove their worth against real competition.

Plain and simple, this shows that...

-Hawaii didn't play anyone during the season, so that undefeated record meant nothing.

-Missouri should have been in that game, not Hawaii.

-And the BCS is B S.
