BC and UW dont look to impressive...I dont pay much attention to east coast football so plz help me out BC is to me very inconsistent...I mean they beat a big time conference team but then lose to the bottom feader...I wont try adn act like I know but im asking.

UW has struggled and won ugly pree much the same as OU but in a tougher confernce which prob gives them the boost

Oh and we just beat Mizzou at their place with there sopposed all world QB pree easliy sure we dont put up 60 pts a game anymore but we have won our game pree easly this year on average

For starters, Missouri, hasn't beaten only a decent team all year. That's not a team I'd brag about beating.

Wisconsin is a darn good team, and not one that anyone paying attention would think OU could easily beat.

Boston College is very good this year. They got tripped up on conference road game. They have beaten two VERY talented teams, both of which could beat or at least hang with OU any time.

I wasn't saying anything bad about OU, just that your post was pretty silly IMO.

I wasnt bragging about beating Mizzou I knew they were overatted to begin with, the media just hyped them up and even picked them to beat us, which I thought was preety funny.

BC and UW are good but very inconsistant like I said, however I just couldnt see them beating us, not they way we are playing now.

Thx for letting me know about...that :D bad habbit

We all have our opinions I just really believe OU is better than were they are ranked, besides if those blind refs would of just called the game like it should of been called in Oregon we wouldnt of dropped that low to begin with and our only loss to Texas being ranked #5 (which I beleive is wrong they dont deserve that high)

If more teams would invite Boise State to play them, perhaps all this "they don't deserve to be where they are" talk would be proven right.

Until that time, because of the division that Boise State is in (which they dominate, along with just about every PAC-10 team they've ever played) they are afforded this position. Don't like it? Too frickin bad.

BCS will have no answers for questions ahead.

For those who enjoy BCS chaos, the fun starts now.

Southern California's loss to Oregon State was the first and most significant step toward giving the Bowl Championship (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Championship) Series an impossible task of putting together a title game that will satisfy everybody.

The Beavers' 33-31 upset Saturday had fans of highly ranked one-loss teams rejoicing from Gainesville, Fla., to Berkeley, Calif.

Don't get too down, Trojans. While you gave up control of your destiny in the championship race, you're not out of it either.

When the BCS standings came out Sunday Ohio State and Michigan were still on top. It hardly mattered that West Virginia was slightly ahead of Florida in third place, with Louisville and Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University) also close behind. The issue is a long way from being settled. In fact, it probably won't ever get settled.

After Saturday, there were six unbeaten teams in Division I-A. Only three of those teams can end the regular season undefeated: The Ohio State-Michigan winner; one of three Big East teams and Boise State if the Broncos can run the Western Athletic Conference.

There's no question about whether an unbeaten Ohio State or Michigan deserves a spot in the title game on Jan. 8. The one that wins out is going to Glendale, Ariz.

That second spot is going to be up for much debate, and there will be more than one right answer.

The best-case scenario for the BCS now - if you want to call it that - is for West Virginia, or Louisville to remain perfect and lay claim to the second spot in the title game. But that's not going to go over well with those who don't think much of the Big East.

The Big East is no longer the Big Least. It's better at the top than the Atlantic Coast Conference. But check out Florida's schedule and try making a case that if the Gators finish 12-1 and are champions of the toughest conference in the nation they don't deserve to play for the national title, even ahead of an unbeaten Big East winner.

OK, so let's put the Gators in there against Ohio State or Michigan - and then go tell West Virginia coach Rich Rodriguez or Louisville's Bobby Petrino, "Sorry, your perfect record isn't perfect enough."

Seriously....the rest of you guys can squabble about this and that and who should be where.... but, after Michigans game on thursday there is a sizable gap between Ohio State and the rest of the pack....

!!!FUN FACTS!!!
Ohio State leads the nation with 7.3 Points per game allowed.
Ohio State is second in the nation with 18 INT's
Ohio State is #10 in the country in Pts per game
Ohio State is #3 in the country in passer rating
Ohio State has won every game by at least 17 points.
Ohio State QB Troy Smith will 100% win the Heisman.

Henne's just not that good, hart won't survive his 35 carries against OSU's DL, Manningham won't be 100%, Arrington will be in jail, and Lloyd Carr will still be Jim Tressels property.

If there is a team that should be #2 its Michigan..... but that doesn't mean that anyone can play with the buckeyes either.

Good article on the wil November ahead.
http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/gamedayFinal?page=gamedayFinal9&lpos=spotlight&lid=tab3pos1



In my opinion, the one-loss team with the best shot at playing for the national title is Florida. Not only are the Gators one of the more talented teams with one loss, but they have the best schedule for making the run. They should win the rest of their regular-season games, and the SEC Championship gives them a chance to beat a quality opponent on the final day with all voters watching.

I am happy in the fact that WVU has moved up to number 3 and UofL is now number 5. WVU's fate is in their hands now. With UofL ranked top 5 and Rutgers probably a top 10 team by the time WVU faces them, it gives WVU the needed quality wins to play in a NC. So at least the fate of WVU is theirs to own. Now lets play the games and see who comes out on top.

I think it will be close. That's all I'm saying. One mistake by either team will probably be the difference. I wouldn't be surprised to see Hart fumble for the first time in forever, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see Smith throw 2 interceptions again. i'd be more surprised by the fumble though, even if just by a little. And I think Michigan is plenty good enough to stop Wells, that shouldn't even be a relevant question.

NOW you are really showing how (gosh how do I say this nicely) crazy you are being. :shakeno:

No matter how dominate the college team is, I'd still bet every time on the pro team No matter how bad they look.

The FACT is more than 90% of college players never make it to the pros. Ok, so lets say OSU is different. Just like some of the stud UM teams... Which had like half their team go pro and be studs. That would still HALF that team that is not up to NFL standards.

If a team doesn't get the respect of voters before the season, it's a stigma they usually can't live down the rest of the year.

Preseason rankings are not only useless, but negatively effect rankings throughout the year. There's no reason for preseason rankings other than for the talking heads to have something to grad hold of.

If you dont have preseason rankings and 15 teams all win game 1 how do order them? Based on who they beat or how well they played? But even that is subjective and may negatively impact a team for the rest of the season if they just played one bad game. If Floridas first game was against Auburn and they lost, starting polls from that game on could kill their chances for a BCS game but because you had preseason polls and both are ranked high it isnt as devestating a loss. Or a team like WVU who doesnt play anyone may never get into the top 5. I dont see how you get around neading preseason polls, they just shouldnt count for as much later in the season. If you clearly got it wrong, dont be afraid to rework your poll mid way through the season for example. Or just wait to have any rankings until a few weeks into the season like the BCS.

I've never really watched much college football until this season as we are getting coverage over here on satellite so how does this BCS rating work? I'm guessing it doesn't take strength of schedule into consideration because from where I'm looking Florida have had a horrendous schedule but still only have 1 loss and if they win the SEC they should be in the Championship game.
I'm not a Florida fan btw, the channel shows a lot of SEC games so I have seen some great games and in my opinion coming out of that conference only losing 1 game is damn impressive compared to going undefeated but playing a bunch of nobodies.

What? Weakest? how do you figure?

But no...no one is as good....

Ohio State could beat the Dolphins, for sure.
:lol: C'mon dude, seriously ... NO college team could beat ANY pro team.

If you dont have preseason rankings and 15 teams all win game 1 how do order them? Based on who they beat or how well they played? But even that is subjective and may negatively impact a team for the rest of the season if they just played one bad game. If Floridas first game was against Auburn and they lost, starting polls from that game on could kill their chances for a BCS game but because you had preseason polls and both are ranked high it isnt as devestating a loss. Or a team like WVU who doesnt play anyone may never get into the top 5. I dont see how you get around neading preseason polls, they just shouldnt count for as much later in the season. If you clearly got it wrong, dont be afraid to rework your poll mid way through the season for example. Or just wait to have any rankings until a few weeks into the season like the BCS.That's the problem. This rarely happens.
Just like Motion said, it shouldn't happen until several weeks into the season.
Preseason rankings are pure conjecture, but voters use this conjecture to base their future rankings relevant to match-ups of teams in those preseason rankings.

well, if the voters used their heads, it wouldn't be a problem. we don't have to change anything, the voters just need to be smart.

Don't be bitter because Florida isn't very good.

Worst post of the year.

They only have the best front 7 in all of college football.

If you know the voters won't fix it themselves, then you need to fix it for them... protect them from themselves.

I know, I thought Peterson was the best player in college football, and that he was more deserving of the Heisman than anyone, before he got hurt.

:yes: Between him and Calvin Johnson, and Peterson has the edge because he didn't have to depend on an inconsistant QB.
