Magi football sees one of its Four Corners taken away

Magi football sees one of its Four Corners taken away

It seemed like it was going to be another typical year for Mitakihara Magi football. However, news broke out that the Associated Press awarded the 2027 National Championship to the Ohio Bobcats after they were thoroughly waxed, 126-35, in the 2028 BCS National Championship Game.

That sparked scenes of unrest and rioting in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Hamilton, Regina, Saskatoon and Montreal. People were looting, burning down buildings, streaking in the cold, destroying and defacing public property and causing untold mayhem all over.

Surprisingly, all of Mitakihara Town was relatively quiet, but many people viewing at Madoka Square greeted the news with a chorus of boos.

One fan, 32-year old shipyard worker Jonas Bonas of Nanaimo, expressed his through disgust in between sips of coffee.

"You have to be kidding me," Bonas said with a snarl. "We just murdered these Bobcats, and the AP still gives them the National Championship. Ohio ends up earning a tainted national title. There is no way the AP should be doing this crap.

"We won our crown with authority, and the AP doesn't even take that into consideration. That is a huge slap in the face. We're outraged by this monstrosity."

"This is highway robbery of the highest order," said Blitz McKinnon, a 45-year old trucker from Prince George. "There is no way in hell that a team that got kicked to curb and hails from a mid-major conference deserves a national championship. The AP votes must have been tired of giving the trophy to us that they decided to give it to a different team.

"I will not be surprised if next season, we go unbeaten in the regular season but we don't get invited into the 2029 BCS National Championship. This is one of the greatest tragedies in all of sport—not just Canadian or American, but all of sport."

Indeed, the president of Ohio University, Roderick J. McDavis, resigned from his post after receiving over 9,000 death threats via Twitter and postal mail, citing a "fear for his health." This is not the first time the Associated Press has broken rank with the Bowl Championship Series. In 2003, while LSU was given the BCS National Championship, USC won the AP National Championship. This is the first split college football national championship in over two decades.

Tailback Aaron Hogan put the whole situation in perspective.

"We don't care what the pollsters thought of our team," Hogan said after the victory rally at Kirisame Pyramid. "When all is said and done, we won our national championship. Obviously, the AP's decision means that Ohio is the best college football team in the United States. But it is not the best college football team in all of North America.

"Not everyone is going to respect what we have done this year, but we don't care. We play to win games against whoever we face, and if that means we don't win any trophies, that's fine with us. We've gone undefeated period, and I don't have to say anything else."
