    The only problem I have with the CNN article is that clearly Georgia should never have been ranked as high as they were, given three loses now. They are no better than Washington State to me.

    I would have to say that the poll system was equally f-ed up as the BCS. It's mainly politics and it is subjective for both the AP and the coaches. There were many years prior to the BCS that I just shook my head.

    And if you didn't start out in the top 10 preseason, it was very difficult to get there despite your record. The polls go for the same teams every year.

    It's obvious to me that some sort of playoff is needed. How exactly that will be implemented is beyond me, but you don't hear people complaining when March Madness is over.

    It sounds like the CNN article was written by the BCS administrative assistant... of course two fruitful games is what the BCS wanted- of course they want controversy- and for us to talk about it for the next month. Anything that is going to generate more money for the BCS... The BCS is NOT about setting up a system to declare one National Champion it's about marketing and generating as much money as possible for the conferences that comprise the BCS. As much as i'd like to think this controversy will help bring a playoff to Div 1 football- I envision all those fat-ass BCS representatives sitting in their offices laughing their asses off as the money continues to pour in.

    edited to add:the previous sytem wasn't great either- the original BCS notion was the computers would HELP inject a little bit of Objectivity into the decision making process- but the Human polls would still be weighted more... instead what we get is the computer polls are weighted more- and the Human polls help instill a little bit of Subjectivity (common sense) into the decision making process...

    The controversy will be over, for a while at least , when Michigan crushes USC.

    So, does that mean LSU will have a clear path to #1 when they beat OU in the Sugar Bowl?

    IMO- records aside- i think the 2 best teams in the country are playing in the Rose Bowl... do you think any of the one loss teams would have wanted to face Michigan?
    Which LSU team will show up against OU? LSU has looked very Jekkyl and Hyde like at times during the year.

    Michigan is playing great ball...no doubt. And honestly, the Rose Bowl will probably be a better game than the Sugar Bowl if LSU doesn't show up ready for a very pissed off OU team.

    I'm looking forward to almost all of the bowls (my Alamobowl has a very nice Nebraska-Michigan State matchup) and even though my 'Horns got screwed by OU losing, I still don't mind the BCS all that much.

    I've grown up with Div I football (I have vague memories of the Longhorns' '63 championship when I was 9) not always having a clear champion and I guess it just doesn't bother me all that much.

    It's still far and away my favorite sport.

    That's the thing...OU is gonna be majorly ticked after the drubbing they endured at the hands of K-State. LSU really better be ready, or this game could get very ugly very quickly...
