One of the greatest injustices in college football, has played a part in making many of its national champions, mythical. Too many teams from warmer climates have enjoyed the advantage of playing for this title - either in their own backyard or in weather conditions to which they are accustomed.
If you've watched this evening's Pinstripe Bowl, it's plain to see that snowy weather has not kept the fans away from Yankee Stadium. The attendance for this game is certainly no worse than the other bowls that have been played to this point. And there's something about the snow that makes a football game more special.
Other than the Rose Bowl, there is no better venue for the national championship game than, New York City.
I expect the Steinbrenner's will make sure that New York and Yankee Stadium will play host to this event - and on January 1st.
Imagine watching the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve and Ohio State facing either USC or an SEC team for the title, on day one of the new year.
Then, maybe we'll see just how much of an advantage that weather can have, in crowning college football's champion.
