You ran the gamut —

a season unscathed

yet ended abrupt,

fearless Knights

denied the due

you feel deserved,

and deservedly so.

But while another

shall be crowned

in your stead

(and full disclosure,

I am partial to pachyderms)

I applaud your fight!

So have your parade,

hang your banners,

celebrate your status

as National Champions,

if even it is with


For what is this game

in this flawed system

but a stage

for grand spectacle

and feats of athleticism

and greatness achieved

on the field?

For no champion

should be crowned

by a room full of suits

but by those warriors,

or eye-blacked menagerie,

or especially, yes, knights

who do battle

on the field.
