    Utah is 5th in the other poll. That just sucks, imo

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    The only reason I would see that sucking is that they are rated below Over-ratUd in both polls, they have been Exposed two yrs in a row. That game was just fucking disgusting last night.

    OU should be lucky to stay in the top 5 after that performance. you think they wouldve stayed number 2 if this was any time during the regular season? what a bunch of crap.

    While I agree....playing devils advocate..


    Should you be heavily penalized for playing the # 1 team and getting beat?Even the way they did?

    Isn't #2 SUPPOSED to lose to #1....

    I'd probably put them behind Utah at #4.

    The best thing about these final polls is the obviousness of how bad the Big East is. West Virginia, a dark horse NC contender and the consensus favorite isn't ranked, while the conference champion, Pitt, is #25 in the AP and unranked in the coaches poll. Boston College, who also leaves next year is #21 in both, leaving the highest ranking "qualifying" Big East team the one that played a C-USA schedule: Louisville at #6/#7.

    What a load of crap. Screw these automatic tie-ins. I hope the Rose withdraws from the BCS and let the rest of the damn country go back to their Bowl Alliance. I wouldn't care. UM/Texas was a great game, but college football is about the traditions, and one tradition that we all were deprived of this year was seeing USC lay their 55-19 ass whoopin' on UM instead of OU. :biggrin:

    Hard to figure this out. TT beat Cal, Cal lost to USC.....barely and could have won. UT lost to OU, but UT lost to scUM who we smoked. And OU was smoked by USC.

    My final conclusion is this. Bob Stoops is John Cooper. And #1 Pete knows how to prepare a team to play the big game. Combined, that equals one big blowout.

    And the Big East should play the Big XII each year with the winner getting an automatic bid to the Tire Bowl.


    Seriously, I don't know what any of these polls mean anymore at the end of the season. There are teams that are ranked too low and some too high.

    Playoff!!

    They got beat by 36, and were lucky that it wasn't even uglier. They were not the #2 team in the nation. I am not sure if they were even inthe top 3 in my book. Besides, this is the second yr in a row that they were exposed. You would think sooner or later that the BCS would learn...

    At least White didn't win a second heisman this yr, that would have been a disgrace.

    Dryden- I went on this same Tirade for the umpteenth time last night... and then I realized how it just wasn't ever goign to happen... sad really.

    I was just looking at that list again. There are only two teams I think might beat us RIGHT NOW: USC and Utah.

    There are three teams that I think would be toss-ups RIGHT NOW: Texas, Auburn and Iowa.

    I think we beat the remainder of them, RIGHT NOW.

    Next year, it is only USC and Iowa....IMHO.

    Thank God there's not a split, where the AP votes for Auburn.
    Not that really means anything. Only means something when Petty is trying to convince the world that he won a national championship when LSU won the BCS title, which is the national championship.

    Something was announced just prior to bowl season, and I got to thinking:

    The Big East gets to use Louisville's ranking for BCS purposes (presumably to prevent them from losing their automatic when the cumulative rank is figured) - but doesn't the "rule" state that their Champion's BCS rank get used?

    If so, why do they even care if they can use Louisville's rank?

    If not, why didn't they give their automatic bid to Louisville?
