I would be suprised if LSU is above Penn State in the BCS though. Last week LSU was 4 in both human polls and 8 in the computer polls, PSU was 5 in both human polls and 3 in the computer polls. This week both teams move up one spot in the human polls, but PSU closed the gap a little in the USA Today Poll. In the computer polls PSU will stay at 3 while LSU will move up to around 6. That will give a slight advantage to PSU. Granted this will probably all change when LSU plays in its championship game which would raise them a few spots in the computer polls if they win.

And thats the poll that matters.

If USC or Texas loses, I think its PSU who jumps into the rose bowl.

It doesn't matter now. Miami was the only realistic team that had a chance to match up with USC's offense, & after this week's underachieving performance that pipe dream is over. Neither Texas, LSU, Penn State, or Virginia Tech has what it takes to best USC.

So let me get this right...

Miami, a team that lost to Georgia Tech is the only team out of the bunch that "has what it takes to face USC?"

Fresno State, the 16th ranked team with a bad defense took USC down to the wire AT USC'S HOUSE, but LSU, the 3rd ranked team in the country with a DOMINATING defense can't hang???


I just love some of the comments from you LSU/SEC haters. It's hilarious.

I'm not saying we are going to the National Championship. Because I don't see Texas or USC losing.

But for you to say "we don't have what it takes" is funny as hell when you probably have not watched LSU a whole bunch this year. How do you know that? You probably would agree that Fresno didn't "have what it takes," but they took them down to the wire.

Their defense has what it takes to match up with USC. The offense leaves more to be desired, but like I said, they underachieved & lost that opportunity.

Fresno State has a VERY GOOD defense, just not the caliber of Miami's. They were #6 before they played USC.

You do realize that LSU's defense is just as fast, talented and good as Miami's, huh?

Hey, I like the Canes. I really do. But sometimes I feel like some people on here make me out to be a UM hater because when I make an LSU post they automatically compare the two teams.

It sucks that UM lost, but it did in effect help my Tigers. That's all.

Hey I'm going to tell you right now. I was pulling SO FRIGGIN HARD CORE for Fresno Saturday night. Yall almost did it for us.

I beg to differ. USC has been squeaking by the teams in the 10-20 rankings. They squeaked by Notre Dame and squeaked by Fresno State.

I think if they play a top 5 school they can be beaten. Penn State might not have the offensive firepower to put up 50 points a game, but they definately have the defense to match up with USC's offense. Texas' defense isnt that bad either but they have the offense to go point for point with USC.

If USC has been dominating ranked teams, then I would agree with you. However that hasnt been the case. They have shown that they are vulnerable and can be beaten.

I think USC's defense has to be considered questionable at best after giving up 42 to a (admittedly good) mid-major team.

If LSU gave up 42 to Southern Miss or UAB, the pundits would swear that there's no way we're #1 'with a defense like that'.

thats not a fair comparison southern miss and uab are not even close to the level fresno st is....usc gave up 42 to a top 10 maybe top 5scoring team...give fresno st a little more credit we lost a extremely close game to oregon and without that loss fresno st could be a top 10 team...maybe in past years you could compare southern miss and uab to fresno state but this team is good and pat hill will keep them good for years they should kick out washinton or oregon state from the pac10 and put fresno st in .sorry for the rant i just think fresno st deserves more credit:tongue:

Are they both top 5 schools?

USC has shown they can be beaten and they have shown they are vulnerable. Their defense is their weakness and its been shown acouple of times. Fortunately for USC, they have not played a balanced team yet.

Fresno looked very UAB-ish in losing to Nevada.

Fresno was just overhyped because the media couldn't admit that USC nearly lost to a very average team.

Remember, this is the same media that still says USC is going for a three-peat, even though they never even smelled the crystal ball in 2003.

:rolleyes: whatever....UAB couldnt put up 42 on USC no one they played all year could (maybe ND did dont remember if they got 30or31)..the only thing average right now is the defense who along with a stupid special teams play lost the game.pinegar was on fire and that offense is still probably a top5 offense....and overhyped? all i heard about was reggie bush(wich he deserved)...and who are you to talk who did you almost lose to?....im not sayin we would win but if fresno state played LSU youd call us anything but "average".

I like Pat Hill and the program he's put together. But the fact is that USC played Fresno about the same way Nevada did. And you'll never hear the media report it that way.

Maybe Fresno did play great against USC - or maybe not. But whatever the case, USC's opponents have not proven to be world beaters.

For example, everyone thought Notre Dame was awesome when they gave USC all they could handle. Right? But ND's loss to 5-6 Michigan St. in South Bend, as well as their close win over 4-loss Michigan, and their close win over a poor Stanford team, don't look that impressive to me.

I just really question USC's defense, and I think the media is giving them a free pass here. I mean Fresno's offensive line was opening up GAPING holes all game long against USC's front seven. UCLA should be able to score a lot on USC. We shall see.

USCs defense is not the greatest but its not the worst either they have also had alot of injuries and alot of different starters on defense...and fresno state has a really great line kyle young IMO is the best C in the country and have a T named dartangon shack is that not the greatest name ever...anyways i was not saying USCs defense is amazing i was just saying there is nothing average about fresno especially the offense(i think its like the 5th or 6th best scoring offense)
