Greetings from the Big Easy

by Bradford Doolittle

I’m sitting in my hotel room in New Orleans, frantically putting the finishing touches on this week’s Hoops List, which has been slowly coming together in hotels, on planes, in three different cities and even from a balcony just off of Bourbon Street. Then I’ve got to get up to speed on last night’s NBA action, which featured the first 15-game slate in league history. What a night to be away from my TiVo!

Well, I have to say that it was worth it. Last night, I attended the Sugar Bowl with my in-laws, who are from Utah. My wife is an alumni of the University of Utah, so it was a pretty happy night … and a long celebration. Whatever they put in those Hurricanes is diabolical …

Anyhow, it’s off topic, but I’ve spent my morning arguing with anyone who will listen (Alabama fans) that Utah should win the national title and so I thought I’d spread those sentiments here, as well. There is no doubt in my mind. (My argument is here.) If I’m a Florida or Oklahoma fan, the Sugar Bowl result is a nightmare scenario. There were already rumblings for Texas and USC, but now with Utah finishing a perfect season by thumping an SEC power, is there any way that the winner of the BCS title game will feel like a legitimate champion?
