As expected

Well, well, well.

For all of the bluster coming from the islands about how, a) Hawaii should be playing for the national championship because of an unbeaten season; and b) Colt Brennan was a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate; came a night of complete exposure.

Georgia 41, Hawaii 10.

It wasn't even that close.

Look, I don't have a problem with mid-majors playing up in the BCS. I don't. Boise State obviously proved it belonged last year.

I do have a problem with a team playing a Charmin soft schedule and then claiming they should be in the title game.

As for Brennan, he wasn't even on my Heisman ballot. (That was Darren McFadden at No. 1, Tim Tebow at No. 2 and Chase Daniel at No. 3). Brennan's performance made me feel even better about my ballot.

The only down side to this scenario is that there are some people who think Georgia should be No. 1 because of this tremendous "accomplishment'' against Hawaii.

Look, Georgia did what it was supposed to do against an inferior team. That game was no gauge for the Bulldogs.

I agree, Scott. Colt Brennan is definitely overrated. No mobility and a weak arm won't get him far. Georgia showed him and the Warriors how football should be played, but for the Bulldogs and their fans to claim they are No. 1 and should be playing for the national title is a little far-fetched.

BTW, the pimps successfully defended their fantasy football title :)
