    Florida only has 6 games played, and 1 of them is a loss. That hurts them.

    The computers don't respect LSU at all. They also don't consider margin of victory, but they do consider home-field advantage, so that win over LSU doesn't look so hot for the computers.

    OSU, on the other hand, has played more games, won all except at USC. They don't consider the score, so for all they know, we lost 23-21.. and it was AT USC. Also, in general, the computers seem to like the B10 a decent amount... Minnesota is pretty high up their IIRC, and that win therefore looks quite good (I think, for example, that Minnesota is higher in the computers than LSU).

    Conspiracy! I think the voters are trying to keep OSU out of some sort of BCS game. Texas Tech did look impressive, but not enough to leap-frog PSU. If we win out, we'll still stay at #12, even if every other team in the polls lost from here on out.
     
  5. We are the highest rated 2 loss team. Can't complain with that.

    Texas Tech beat the #1 team, who already took out OU, Missouri & Okie State.
    Penn State beat Ohio State, who simply isn't great this year and was already humiliated this season.

    You're right, but I don't think one voter could, without laughing, honestly say Boise State or TCU is one of the best 10 teams in the nation. I would venture out to say that Ball State, who's ranked 16th, is better than Boise State. Especially if Dante Love was still on the team.
     
  8. True, but these teams get screwed over way more than we do. If PSU gets into the title game, which is still highly likely, then we would make the BCS. It take extraordinary circumstances for the other teams to make it.

    Well, I guess the writers were not impressed as I was with Texas Tech. Nice to see us moving up to #10. I figured the rest of the top 10 would look this way but a little surprised with Utah at #8. They really don't have that many quality wins IMO.

    The teams from the Mountain West are finally dropping which pleases me. I was surprised that Tulsa snuck back into the top 25 and California is out. I wonder how bad Tulsa would get beat by USC.

    We don't always disagree on poll stuff. I also moved Texas Tech to #1 this week, and I left Cal in the top-25 instead of Tulsa. :biggrin:

    On all the Fox NFL games they mention the BCS standings, and one fucking announcer says something about USC every time.

    I'd like these coaches to explain how a 2-loss Texas Christian team is ranked above an unbeaten Ball State. :roll1:
