Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi qualified for the 2065 BCS National Championship Game in Miami, Fla. with a 55-34 victory over the Florida Gators on Magia Day 2064 at the Sakura Bowl in Mitakihara Town, B.C. Quarterback Haruki Takayama passed for 184 yards and a touchdown and ran for 141 yards and two more scores to lead the Magi. However, Coach Kaname was not impressed by the performance of his players.

"I had a lengthy conversation with the team afterwards in the locker room," Coach Kaname said. "I wasn't angry at them since we did win the game, but I was concerned that they let the shutout win over Navy get to their heads. I told them, 'Boys. Navy was last week. This team is better than them, and I don't know why you boys lost focus tonight.'

"I believe this was the most points we gave to an opponent this year, am I right? Yes, I am. Anyway, as I was saying, we have a...I'm going to say that we run the risk of heading into the BCS National Championship looking like we had one too many Molsons. This is an even bigger problem knowing that these kids are still underage, and they are not allowed to drink any alcohol by law.

"All joking aside, I told the players, 'That performance sucked. Now I know we won, but that sucked.' One of the most important values that we have on this team that has helped develop our reputation to what it is today...is that we don't play down to any other level except our own. And our level is one of a kind. So I have to be wondering why we were forced to chase the game in the second quarter.

"So that's that. i also told Haruki, 'Listen, young man. If you head to New York with me and maybe a few others, and your name is not called, don't worry about it. Worry about defending the Pentagram. The Heisman Trophy may be out of your reach now, but you have three more chances to get it. So don't fret if you end up finishing second place. I don't think you had the types of stats that would make you a contender, so just worry about the National Championship Game.

"Now because of this somewhat disappointing result, the practices are going to be really intense, full of passion, commitment and desire. I don't want to see this performance in January when we head to Dolphins Stadium. I want this fixed, and it will be fixed. So long as I am the coach of the Best College Football Team in All of College Football."

Halfback Bruno Okuno ran for 157 yards and a touchdown, wide receiver Zac Chabangu had four catches for 71 yards, center Ron Nwankwo led the blockers with nine pancakes and is on track to win the Rimington Trophy and right outside linebacker Zach N'Diaye led the defense with 11 tackles and a sack.

Mitakihara improve to 12-0 on the year.
