Presenting the brand new College Basketball Championship Series presented by Meow Mix

After Florida's thrilling 41-14 upset of highly favored Ohio State in the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game, I think it is evident that the time is right. Now is the time for the NCAA to institute a BCS-style championship system for all its sports. This system is infallible, as evidenced by this great game. Right? So let's start with the biggest one of all - basketball. If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone say "March Madness sucks," I'd be rich. Like, John Ratzenberger rich.

Right now, the basketball final would be North Carolina versus Florida in the basketball championship. Who doesn't want that? It would be so awesome. In fact, let's take this BCS idea one step further. Let's settle it on the video game field. Got a problem with that? A problem with video games? Sounds a little fruity to me. Not to mention terroristy.

Your college basketball championship highlight of the day.

So what if
Boise State feels gyped in football? When's the next time you're going to Idaho? Yeah, that's what I thought. Argument over. But just to be thorough in my rhetorical crushing, do you know what more games would do to the money I mean academic scheduling and conference structure? Particularly the former, which big-time college athletic programs have sworn to uphold?

So go back to Russia with your playoff system, Boris. It's a new era, and basketball is next up in the not-settling-championships-on-the-field revolution. Number One versus Number Two in video games. All we need now is a sponsor, you say? Way ahead of you, partner. They were beating down my door. That's right -- all the big ones.
Hydrox cookies, Simply Soda (that has a great ring to it, huh? The Simply Soda Basketball Championship Video Game Series. Alas, we just couldn't get the numbers to square), Tandy, and that company that makes the drinking bird. But in the end, I went with an industry leader. A product with a brand so strong, customers ask for it by name. Yes. I went with Meow Mix. Or, as I like to call it, The Michael Jordan Of Cat Food. And I couldn't be happier. So welcome to your future, basketball fans. It's the NCAA Basketball Video Championship Series presented by Meow Mix. Fasten your seatbelts! It's gonna be quite a ride.
