Yep, the regular season has been great, riveting and surprising at every turn. Now it has come to an end. So let the satisfying regular season end and let the aggravating postseason begin.
Here are the lessons we learned from this past weekend.
We learned that every fan of college football deserves an apology.

Dear college football fans,
You've just experienced one of the greatest regular seasons in the history of our sport. Hope you enjoyed it. I sure did. But here's an apology for you: I'm sorry. Why? Because now you're about to get rooked.
We all know that this system of deciding the title in major college football really sucks. The BCS creators -- Roy Kramer and his cronies, with their smarmy smiles, hoodwink eyes, glad-handing, placating and backstabbing selves -- can all go burn in Hades. Just imagine how cool "December Madness" could be, especially with the one-loss teams we have in the top 6?
Instead, we get a month-long layoff to collect cobwebs. Then we get a bunch of meaningless bowl games matching up teams that don't deserve to go to the postseason, playing in bowl games that are really nothing more than just a city's chamber of commerce infomercial. And finally another "championship" game that won't truly decide who the best team in the country is. Yee ... Haw.
So please accept this apology.
