College athletics and greed

As I'm taking a break from watching my grad school Alma Mater get thrashed in the National Championship game, I just need to complain about the fact that this game is on Fox Sports.  I know it is cliche to complain about college athletics and greed, but did the NCAA really have to award a contract for the national championship game to a network that has no idea what it is doing with college football and things it can cover up the fact by a lot of fancy cameras?  CBS and ABC have offered top-notch college football coverage all year and then the biggest game of the year goes to a network without a clue about the sport.  Just plain wrong.  Though, perhaps it would bother me less if the results of the game were more to my liking.
