    *Sigh*

    I knew this would be the tone.

    Boise loses a tough game to a good Nevada team and people conclude "see we told you they were no good"...

    But if Alabama had hung on to beat Auburn? People would still defend Auburn and say "see we told you the SEC was tough."

    I had so hoped people would conclude that Nevada was also a good team... but instead people fall back to Boise not being worth it...

    As much as I was rooting for Boise I also root against the non-playoff system and every year hope we get 4-5 good undefeated teams to screw up the system.

    Oregon St could still beat Oregon next week... wouldn't be a shocker given the rivalry... and South Carolina game Auburn all they could handle once this season, so a loss for Auburn wouldn't be a shocker there either.

    I so hope TCU is the only undefeated team left standing next week just to make people think.

    Even better then 4 or 5 undefeated teams would be 6 or 7 two loss teams with no undefeated teams. The poor computer might just blow a couple of fuses trying to figure out who is the best team.









    ps The computers would not have any problems. It's the poor sport writers who would blow their fuses.

    You are right... that would be a much better scenario. I have something new to root for next year :)

    Well so much for the Boise State rollercoaster. :D

    I'm more interested in the Badgers going to the Rose Bowl, after a stellar 11-1 season and beating Ohio State, Michigan, and Iowa this year. Add in an 83-20 and 70-23 whooping of Indiana and Northwestern...and its been a great ride in 2010. WOO HOO.

    No mention of the loss to MSU or fluke 1 point win (blocked extra point) against Arizona State? ;):lol: Looking at OSU, MSU, & Wisc schedules I realize how weak & lame the conference is. All 3 played a whopping 3 ranked (at the time of the game) teams.

    Uh...having three (3) 11-1 teams in the same conference...many against top 25 teams...is hardly "lame". Wisconsin beat Ohio State when they were #1 and Iowa when they were #10.

    The Big Ten also had more top 25 teams on average than almost any other conference.

    Michigan State also got their clock cleaned in their 1 loss, which is why UW will go to the Rose Bowl with a higher ranking.

    In reality...many "experts" think the Big Ten was the cream of the crop in the NCAA this year, and UW the leader of that Conference.

    You can't be serious? :lol: Big Ten had 3 teams and nothing else. The SEC West alone has 5 of their 6 teams ranked with 7 total...Big 12 has 5 ranked.

    TCU will probably cost Stanford a trip to the Rose Bowl. Stanford, which is arguably the 2nd best team in the country, won't even be going to the Rose Bowl. Frustrating.

    First off, second best? No, not quite...Oregon destroyed them & Auburn went undefeated in the SEC. I'd say 3rd best, but not 2nd. ;)

    They should at least get a BCS bowl due to the "Rule of Four," which guarantees a team ranked in the top four of the final standings a berth in the BCS. #5 LSU & #4 Boise St. both lost, thus #6 Stanford will likely be #4 & get an automatic BCS bid.

    That would be 3 teams MORE than most other Conferences.

    Everyone knows the SEC has 1 or 2 teams every year...and a bunch of also rans...nothing more. Well....almost everyone... :D

    No soup for you. :grin:

    Are you saying the SEC is a 1 or 2 team conference & the Big 10 is better than the SEC & Big 12? :eek2:

    New AP & Coaches Polls are out...
    SEC - 6 teams
    Big XII - 5 teams
    WAC - 3 teams in AP, 2 in Coaches (no Hawaii)
    Big 10- 3 teams

    If Boise finish in the top ten will their be any chance of them getting a BCS bid? I would hate for them to end up playing in the lost and found bowl.

    Yup - for sure.

    Polls lie. (Note how for 3 weeks in a row this year #1 fell out after 1 week)

    Teams don't.

    Polls are by people, including many experts. Yet, earlier you were noting "experts" saying the Big 10 was the cream of the crop. I guess those guys are right & the pollsters are wrong. :rolleyes: You Big 10 folks in Wisconsin, Michigan, & Ohio are the only ones who think your conference is the best...the rest of the country knows better. Big 10 is 3 teams, usually 2, and nothing more.

    For those who have a lust for polls and buy into that theory....looks like the Big Ten rules that way too... #4 Wisconsin, #6 Ohio State, and #7 Michigan State all in the top 10.

    http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/40404994/ns/sports-college_football/

    Too bad SEC - looks like to world is now fully aware of the"Ppretenter Conference" with only 2 left in the Top 10.

    Boise State took a dive to #9.

    Well, it will certainly be more easy for TCU to get once they complete the move to the Big East. They ought to be able to mop the floor with the rest of Big (L)East football year after year.
