Stanford scored that td in overtime. ND will fall soon.
LSU vs Bama Nov. 3!!
It's all good fun now, because the teams will end up playing each other for the most part.
His key point is that the computers LOVE strength of schedule ( which explains why Gators are #2) whereas most voters don't give it that much credence.
Kirk Herbstreet, on BCS show on ESPN ( and you can watch it online) agrees, says most voters can't tell he difference between Beavers and Ducks..they just hear "Oregon.."
Biggest question after this week..will Mack Brown last the season at Texas...wonder how the Longhorn Network ratings are doing? LOL
Big East with 3 and all undefeated. Yeah baby!
We’ll see how good the Gators are this week, South Carolina is going to be one mad football team, but Driskel keeps impressing with his big plays. If they survive the next two weeks, they’ll certainly be in the hunt.
Oregon is #1, or #2. NOT #3.
You have FReepmail.
Notre Dame in the top 10 is a joke. They’d get skull dragged in the SEC.
In fact, why does the media continue with the charades of Oregon, KSU,etc? Has any of them paid attention the last 6 years?
The real top 4:
4. South Carolina
5. University of some SEC BCS victim.
Ack! Acronym overload. Ohio State is in sports jail and can't be on the BCS list this year so it must be some other OSU. Then I had to look to see how the drunken fratboys at Ohio University (mascot is a student in a polo shirt passed out in a parking lot) got to number 8. Nope, it's just Oklahoma. :-)
Spurrier should always get a nice reception for what he did for our program. No Spurrier...No two titles with Urban. Heck we never even won the SEC before Spurrier came here.
Come on now - it's the Big East. We have high school teams down here that could go undefeated in the Big East. The SEC is where Big East teams go when they drink their milk and grow up.
I’ll quack for that! U of O ‘66
Lurking just outside the BCS Top Ten is THE Mississippi State University, getting ready for their titanic struggle against univ. of alabama-tuscaloosa October 27.
Those computer rankings blow my mind.
The computer rankings will sort out a bit more. Alabama will play Miss St, LSU and possibly UF/SCar in the SECG....so that will move them up.
Miss St plays a tougher end of schedule than beginning.
Fortunately, almost everyone has to fight this out on the gridiron. Before they can win the crystal trophy,
Alabama has LSU, Texas A&M, Iron Bowl, *SEC championship game.
Florida has South Carolina, Georgia, Florida St., *SEC championship game.
Oregon has USC, Oregon St., *Pac 12 championship game.
Kansas St. has Texas, West Virginia
1-loss South Carolina has Florida, *SEC Championship game.
Notre Dame has Oklahoma, USC.
1-loss Oklahoma has Notre Dame, West Virginia.
Oregon St. has Stanford, Oregon, *Pac-12 championship game.
1-loss LSU has Alabama, *SEC Championship game.
1-loss So. Cal has Oregon, Notre Dame, *Pac-12 championship game.
* - if they win their respective division.
So, you see, everyone still has at least two tests left on their schedules with Alabama and Kansas St. probably the easiest roads to the title game but certainly not a cakewalk.
The Iron Bowl?!?!? HA HA HA HA, yeah right, you've seen Auburn play lately?
West Virginia looks a whole lot less intimidating after that beating Texas Tech laid on them. And Texas is on a course to give up more yards this year than any other team in the university's history. Oklahoma is a good team, and K-State went down to Norman and beat them on their home field. The Wildcats are for real. They may not have as much talent as some schools, but they are better disciplined, better coached, and the believe in themselves. I think their number 4 ranking is well earned.
Nobody does less with more than Texas, what a disgrace, Mack should be gone. Just like with Auburn, catch lighting in a bottle at QB, then nothing after they leave.
Bill Snyder is the most underrated coach in the country. Unlike other coaches at his age that became nothing but figureheads.
Yes, I know it’s a really down year for Auburn but they get up for that game as if it’s life/death to them. That rivalry has had some shockers over the years.
I may also add that Mississippi St. and Georgia have good programs but MSU hasn’t beaten anybody good yet and Georgia got stomped by South Carolina who has already lost to LSU so the only way they can get back into this is to beat Florida and hope for a lot of help.
South Carolina also has Clemson on their schedule and, while I don’t think the ACC is a strong enough league to get anyone to the BCS title game, Clemson is probably good enough to give the Gamecocks a tussle at the end of the year.
West Virginia is capable of putting up 50 points on anybody. They’re that scary on offense and Texas Tech did an outstanding job of grabbing the early momentum and forcing the Mountaineers into desperation mode.
Kansas St. slew the giant they needed to and, in honesty, beating Texas is like child’s play for Snyder. But West Virginia will be a stiff challenge and the Big XII has enough schools like Tech, TCU and Oklahoma St. that can spring an upset at any time. The Wildcats have the inside track to the title (and no championship game) but they still have a lot left to do. Other than Kansas, the league has no pushovers anymore.
And at the same time capable of giving up 60 to anybody.
But West Virginia will be a stiff challenge...
Absolutely no disagreement on that. West Virginia is hurt and at home and looking to make a comeback. But you can bet that Bill Snyder and company will be going over the tapes all week and will come up with the same kind of game plan that worked last Saturday. K-State can win at Morgantown. Personally I think they should win at Morgantown. But it won't come easy.
My Scarlet Knights #15 Yee Haa !!!
Mack Brown, the highest paid public employee in the state of Texas.
Mack's offenses have worked up until this week. Defenses could not stop an average 6-A HS team in Texas. They might be able hold a good 6-man team under 50 points, however.
Roll Tide!! Nov 3
My boss is an MSU graduate. We have a lot of fun (well, I do) during football season.
Were they playing? I thought they were conducting a sit-in about something.
I’m not a Tiger fan, but I feel sorry for the team.
Like Arky? Thanks for shopping.
Nice. Mine too.
