You can’t base how good a team is based on statistics, because they play different schedules.
TCU & Boise State in the top 5 = affirmative action has come to college football! What a joke...
I have a feeling Auburn is going to A. have at least one loss, and B. be ineligible for bowl play pretty soon.
I would reverse their No. 2 & 3 and then I think they have it right.
Other than having 1 and 2 reversed I concur with this assessment.
Schedule Strength: Auburn 19, Oregon 55, BSU 87, TCU 93.
Furthermore, among the top of the BCS, the only private university is Texas Christian. The others are all government-run schools.
Oh, did I mention that the full name of TCU is:
Texas CHRISTIAN University.
That must be doubly annoying to atheistic liberals because the name includes Texas (a mostly Conservative state they hate with a passion) and Christian (poison to liberals).
I hate Auburn. But this guy is smoking crack if he thinks Boise would stay on the field with them for more than a quarter. Cam Newton is a cheater, but he’s that good. 1. Oregon. 1A Auburn, pick your order. Everybody else is way back there in irrelevance land.
Boise can beat an Oklahoma or VT on any given day, I’ll give them that. But when they go undefeated through an SEC schedule, where they have to play to that level week after week, then we’ll talk. Same goes for TCU.
Boise State has beaten Oregon 2 years (2008, 2009) in a row.
This is like a minor league baseball team demanding to be included in the major league World Series because of how much they dominated their league. And when told that they had not played any major leagure teams reply, “We asked, but they refused to play us.”
If South Carolina was in the MWC, and Arkansas in the WAC, they would probably both be undefeated and in the top 5.
Both the WAC and MWC have two ranked teams each. The SEC has six ranked teams. That is half of the 12-team conference. The SEC Western Division has five ranked teams. Not only does the SEC have more ranked teams than any other conference, but the SEC Western Division has as many ranked teams as the entire Big 12, and more than any other conference.
If I had time to get into this thread, I would. Too much to do right now. Maybe I will save comment for once the bowl match ups are made.
Just wanted to send a ping.
Their dirty and dangerous defensive hitman Fairley should be suspended.
As an SMU fan it pains me to compliment TCU, but I have watched that team for years. This year’s squad is loaded with Senior talent and would give any team a very good game.
I am sure both TCU and Boise would jump at the chance to play in a BCS conference. But the system is rigged to favor a few select conferences. That is why I see the schedule/conference whining a moot point. TCU and Boise don’t have the option of playing in the SEC or Big Ten. But they have both taken care of the schedule they were given. If they are the last two standing, let them play.
And to avoid this nonsense in the future, instead of having this farcical BCS game, institute a true 16-team playoff and settle the championship on the field like its done for every other sport at every level.
Auburn = Cheating scumbags.
Fairley should be benched for the season.
There really isn’t anything redeeming about you pissant is there? First all the Sarah palin nonsense, now posting anti auburn propaganda. We have taken down South Carolina, lsu, Arkansas, Mississippi state, all top 25 ranked teams. Boise’s big win was va tech, who promptly lost to James Madison. So go shovel that total defense s**t somewhere else. The sec is the ninth division of the NFL. An undefeated auburn is going to vanquish the ducks. As for the smurfs, they can enjoy their bowl check from the sugar or orange.
Agreed ... and I’m rootin’ for Auburn! Right now, after watching Boise State play two games this year, I have to say they are the best in the nation. I believe the matchup against Oregon will show Boise State to be clearly the best around.
