THE SET-UP

Finally, the BCS makes the moves I've been waiting for this past month: It installed the Oregon Ducks in the top spot. It's not that I love the Ducks. I just wanted to get my hypothetical handicap on and see how the bookmakers and wiseguys worked up a line between Oregon and everyone's sentimental No. 1, except the BCS', the Boise State Broncos.

And then what does the BCS do? It lets the TCU Horned Frogs leap frog the Broncs and take the No. 3 spot, just when my plan was coming to fruition.
