Congratulations to the Florida Gators on their victory in the BCS Championship game. I finally have some time after two hectic days following the game, and I will take my dose of humility along with many others who thought Ohio State would prevail.

Meyer may have established a new dynasty in Gainesville, similar to that other dynasty that seems to have surfaced out on the Left Coast. Who knows, maybe next year's BCS Championship game in New Orleans will feature these two.

At the same time, I am not ready to agree that the SEC is the Nation's Best, any more than agreeing that the Big East is the best. The fact is that the conference's representatives did not lose one single Bowl Game this season. You cannot judge the best and worst simply on Bowl Game records. After all, the woebegone Big Ten went two and one against the SEC.

It just makes College Football all the more fun. For me personally, it is a most pleasant relief from the pressures of day-to-day business. Nevertheless, nothing, really, has been settled by these games that are held weeks after the end of the regular season. Nothing, except one thing: The Florida Gators can rightfully claim this year's National Championship. They won it. They deserve it. And if the Meyer dynasty happens, the future may find every other team fighting for the runner up spot.
