    ESPN.com has a great feature up called "[link=http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=BCS/081208&lpos=spotlight&lid=tab4pos1]Welcome to the Bowl Computer Series[/link]" in which they set up a fantasy tournament mocking the BCS.

    Here are the pairings:

    Skynet vs Fembots
    WOPR/"Joshua" vs RoboCop & ED-209
    Cylons (Hottie new-school edition) vs Lieutenant Commander Data
    Hal 9000 vs Deep Blue
    K.I.T.T. (Hoff old-school edition) vs Optimus Prime
    C-3P0 and R2-D2 vs WALL-E
    Johnny No. 5 vs Paulie's robot (Rocky IV)
    The Matrix vs Master Control Program (MCP)

    The link includes some great one-liners combining these geek/jock worlds (WALL-E's strength is listed as "Reformer who tirelessly worked to clean up planet Earth faces only a slightly less daunting task with the BCS"), as well as YouTube clips of all the above, and a completed bracket.

    I gotta go with Skynet on this, as much as I love little WALL-E and his spork.

    I would say a pairing between Skynet and the Cylons would be epic.

    I mean, you have to consider the fact that the Raiders are also Cylons, as are the Centurians. and they have the base stars.. And the ability to take out networked computers quite easily.

    Though, really? Isn't Skynet and the Cylons basically the same thing? We created them, they rebelled, now they're after us? Just no time travel.

    they were a bubble team. that loss to vicki from [link=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088610/]small wonder[/link] earlier in the season really hurt their chances.

    OMG, I can't believe they left out the Borg, but that is an EXCELLENT Small Wonder reference (although any Small Wonder reference is excellent, I'd say).
