  • Final NCAAF Poll Thoughts

    So the final AP and Coaches polls came out this morning and putting the two together we have:

    1. Fla
    2. USC
    3. Utah
    4. Tex
    5. Okla
    6. Ala
    7. TCU
    8. Penn St
    9. Ore
    10. Ohio St

    I find it very silly that the bowl games always seem to outweigh everything done before. Ok played one of the greatest teams in college football history, only lost 24-14 and need to fall from #1 to #5? TCU is now suddenly better than Penn St or Tex Tech or Ohio St?

    It dawned on me what the BEST ranking system would be - Vegas bookies! The #1 team in the BCS was an UNDERDOG to the #2 team?! Someone needs to find whoever establishes the pre-betting line and ask them!

    The BCS is no better that any of the other methods. Some computer firm ran 1000s of simulations of the game from all the stats of the year and correctly picked Fla - maybe THEY should do the 'poll'.

    Playoffs anyone?

    Was that a Nike ad that ran during the game that said "success is earned not calculated"? I thought that was awesome.

        Indeed. If so, what does that make Ole Miss?

        The only team that could make that statement with a straight face this year is Utah. Not saying they are, just they are the only ones with a right to lay claim.
        There are no strings on me

          I know you can find proof for anything on the intraweb, but this

          http://collegefootball.rivals.com/conte ... CID=898599

          and several other sites are saying it. The network announcers last night said it too.

              Now it... should... be time to play one more game...

              Florida vs USC

              They could play it on that week before the Superbowl.

              Sure let the regular season play out, let the bowl games play out, let all the voting be voted on, then after all that shakes down the two teams at the head of the pack play for the NCAA Div 1 Championship, not to be confused with the BCS title.

                3 plays 6

                  Great idea, ... that could be the semifinal game to determine who gets to play Utah!..

                    Uhhh . . . Utah would have to get by Texas (the team) first! 8-)

                    This year is the perfect argument why Obama should be getting his way!!

                      I like Utah and think they deserve the respect an undefeated season deserves. Can they beat Florida or USC? That's a ..nope!

                        My comment was of course tongue in cheek...but many of us dont really care if Utah can beat FL we have no need for a nat'l championship series. We got alot of great football with the bowls, who needs a week of:

                        1 vs 16
                        2 vs 15

                        etc

                        The bowl matchups have been really good lately. Very well desigend. keep up the good work bowl committees and spare us please of a nat'l championship playoff system. Someone find some other important thing for Obama to do.
