Boise State vs. USC: Two Teams, One Cup

Posted By on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 10:19 AM


The College Football World Championship reportedly plans to offer Boise State and the University of Southern California a chance to play for a giant jewel-encrusted goblet—a far greater honor than the lowly MAACO Las Vegas Bowl or BCS national championship for that matter. If Boise State accepts, the game will be played Sunday, Jan. 9, at the same time as the BCS title pillow fight between SEC lightweights Alabama and LSU.

The CFWC will be played at a neutral site—Camel's Back Park—and is rumored to pay out $75 to both schools for their participation. The CFWC is reportedly negotiating a TV deal with public access television valued at $450.

Bronco Nation and the USC faithful would set a park attendance record, as Goblet organizers will host a wonderful array of events in conjunction with the game, including a chili con carnival. Also rumor has it that GWAR will play the family-friendly halftime show.

Boise State and USC's high-powered offenses are expected to put up considerably more than LSU and Alabama's combined 15 points from their yawner bake sale match-up from several weeks ago—and analysts are predicting that the more prestigious CFWC will actually be fun to watch.

The stakes are high, as the winner will be crowned "world champion and bitchin' swill king krunk pimp for 2011"—an accomplishment that would surely top Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore's already stellar resume. USC is facing tough NCAA sanctions that prohibit them from playing in a "bowl" despite their 10-2 record and victory over PAC-12 champion Oregon. The College Football World Championship being a "goblet" (not a bowl) should make it A-OK for them to participate.

Despite aggressive lobbying from Stanford, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, Oregon, LSU, Alabama, Clemson, West Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin, CFWC organizers have selected the two best teams according to their complex selection algorithm—which includes attractiveness of cheerleaders, decency of players and coaches, whether the team recruits legally, and actual talent. No SEC schools qualified.
