Actually the PAC10 has a bunch of very good teams this year with the exception of Wazzu. Top to bottom it is a very tough run this year and everyone is beating up on each other. There isn't a gimme game this year except Wazzu and even they have shown some signs of life, granted small signs. ;)

C'mon now Forrest, only half of the PAC 10 teams have a .500 winning percentage. Stanford and Arizona are good teams, not very good teams. IMO, Oregon is the best team in the country. The rest of the PAC 10 are have runs.

Tough time getting some respect for the PAC10.......which is common place with the SEC and Big10 but now we have to work on our friends up north as well???? :rolleyes:

BTW - Oregon sucks - just had to say that because I hate that school. :) USC, UW, Zona, or OSU will beat them to knock them out of the BCS title game.

I would have to say Boise or Auburn are the best teams in the country right now.

The teams Boise has played have some of the worst defenses in the country.

Being undefeated against crappy competition does not necessarily deserve a title spot.

I watched Michigan State live at Northwestern on Saturday... there is no way on Gods green earth that they are a NC contender. I would be surprised if they win their game vs. Iowa. Even if they do, that is not a great football team. And if Auburn loses to Alabama, leaving no undefeated SEC teams, there is NO WAY that a one loss SEC teams gets into the NC when there are other undefeated teams out there. Just my two cents.

Very interesting............... let's look closer. http://www.teamrankings.com/college-football/ranking/strength-of-schedule-by-team Boise State #48 Georgia Tech #64. Also note that Michigan State is #50 and Ohio State is #51. I think if Boise finishes undefeated, they belong in the title game.

Let's not forget who plays the game on the field... we see upsets each and every year for a reason... once the players get on the field, it is a level playing surface. The SEC is damn good, but those teams have off days like any other, and those off days could result in a loss to a team from a ''lesser conference''.

The SEC "best conference in the country" argument is getting old. Says who? The SEC?? I don't think they're as strong as they pretend to be. I think BSU and/or TCU should get a shot at the national title if they are able to finish perfect. Enough of the consolation prize talk for these teams especially BSU. Did BSU not beat both Virginia Tech (away) and Oregon State? Haven't seen any of the SEC teams sign up to play them especially on the blue turf... ;-)

Exactly why we need a playoff system so those who "think" they are the best and should "always" be in the title game...let them prove it. Tired of the "strength of schedule" trump card that proves nothing and is a perpetual shoe-in for 1 or 2 loss teams from conferences with over-stuffed visions of grandeur.

A level playing field should determine the national champion. Period. All the best teams should get a shot.

Love college football. Loathe the BCS and feel-good bowl games. Computers... Voting... Come on. Let the warriors battle it out. How long do we have to endure this panzy system? Wonder why so many watch the Superbowl? Because the teams playing are the ones left - they beat out the best to earn the right to play for the ring.

Georgia played Boise State in 2005. Georgia was ranked 13th BSU was ranked 18th. Georgia 48 BSU 13. BSU finished the season 9-4 7-1 in the WAC. Georgia finished the season 10-3 7-2 in the SEC.

Alabama caught grief when we scheduled SJSU for not getting tougher out of conference teams. SJSU and BSU are in the same conference along with a bunch of other no name, glorified high school teams.

If BSU wants to play for the national title they need to join a BCS conference.

If they somehow get to play for the national title coming from their joke of a conference I will be outraged. I compare it to little leagues where the losing teams get a trophy too.

Wake up and smell the coffee... perhaps if you knew how things worked, your comment may make sense. But, being as a school can't just "join a a BCS conference", your comment is ridiculous. They would need and INVITE to play in a BCS conference.

Have to point out again that BSU hasn't lost to a BCS conference school for three years... so to say that they are a "little league'' team sure shines a light on the quality of teams in your supposed superior BCS conferences.

They turned down a Home-and-Home deal with I believe Nebraska or Ohio State (I will check which one). They refuse to play anyone decent for their out of conference opponents.

Did you even see their game last Tuesday? They looked terrible.

It will never happen until they improve their strength of schedule.


I think I have a fair understanding of college football, it just differs from yours. I enjoy arguments/debates about it but in this case BSU will not play for the NC until they play a tough season and prove themselves.

NEBRASKA turned down the home and home, not Boise. The Husters paid a crappy team (I won't say who) 800K for a game... the Broncos want 1M for the home and home, Nebraksa turned them down. Why would they pay a lessed team more for 1 game than they would Boise for two???? Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I wonder.

No kidding. Let me get my earplugs (and black-out glasses in this case:rolleyes:).

Having read all of this it seems funny that when bowl season comes around and you point out how the SEC lost several bowl games, it doesn't get much response. During the season you get the previous 5 pages or so, when bowl season comes around, the praise stops.

If you simply implement an 8 team playoff beginning the week after the conference championships you end up with the top 2 teams which should play in the BCS Championship game. The teams that lost in the playoffs all get picked to play in bowl games as they normally do. If ANYTHING, there is more money generated because there is 6 additional games played on top of what there is now. I don't think ANYBODY can complain about the top 8 teams playing in a playoff to get to the championship game. Heck, even if you just took the top 4 ranked teams and did it that way it would be miles ahead of what we have now.

BTW, Boise State should get to play. And huge KUDOS to their coach for sticking around. I'm sure he has gotten MANY offers to coach from other schools but has stayed at BSU. That is class right there, unlike the jockstrap that left Cincinnati to go to notre lame.

Haha, Boise and "Class" mentioned in same sentence? You sir have never been to Boise. Not that there is anything terribly different from their behavior and other NW schools, they just aren't above it at all.

Boise St is one of the top 4 teams for sure and could be the 3nd best team(Duck Alumni here, and Alabama is clearly the best team), but does that qualify them for the National Championship? I don't think so. SOS is a major factor in too many voters minds and obviously the Major component of the computer rankings. We just can't rewrite the rules when its convenient for Boise St. If the BCS wants to rewrite the rules next year, then go for it. If they want a Boise St in the National Championship, then write a criteria for voters. Tell them that the votes should represent who they think is the best team, regardless of schedule strength or wins/losses. But really, that would be terrible. Everyone would want to play in the WAC. Injuries are a killer of many a great team, and it just ain't that tough to stay healthy in the WAC.

Alabama is a much better team than South Carolina. It seems that only in college football do people use a loss to definitely solve which team is better. How many games do you think the Miami Heat will lose this year?

Also, yes, it is defiinitely easier to stay healthy in the WAC. Oregon has had a similar schedule to Boise St so far, and we are lucky to be healthy. Our first string has been on the field less than 75% of the season so far. Less time on field = fewer injuries. Get up by 30 and your injury chance drop like a rock!

Comparing a 82 game sched to a 16 game sched is pointless... that and the NBA championship is contested between two teams that had to WIN their way ro the Finals. The same can't be said about NCAA football.

IMO, even if 'Bama is the best team in the nation, their loss takes them out of contention unless every other top 10 team has a loss. If there are two teams in the top 10 with a goose egg in the loss column, those squads should play for the National Championship.

We can babble on here to no end, but the facts are the facts....


BSU has beat everyone they were supposed to beat, Alabama HAS NOT. Real Champions beat all comers with no excuses. If Boise loses they don't deserve to be mentioned in NC talk either, no different than any other one loss team.

That's a great theory, but the BCS formula is what we all agree to play by before the season starts. The results are the results. It royally screwed Oregon one year, but I think it still makes for the most fun regular season. There is no other sport that holds my attention week in and week out. A playoff would kill that. I don't even pay attention to basketball till march.

Yes and since they play easy opponents week after week it greatly reduces the risk of injury because they can sub out their 1's and 2's.

Your refusal to acknowledge the SOS that Boise lacks is what I do not understand. If Alabama had that schedule there would be no way anyone would respect an undefeated record.

I do agree that their SOS isn't as tough, but like I said, Boise has won the games that they were expected to win. The Gamcock loss was not one that 'Bama was predicted to lose... therefore, IMO, they haven't met expectations.

I've got ZERO against the 'Bama program. They are a damn good team all around. I just think that the 0 loss top ten teams deserve a shot, and Boise has been good for enough consecutive years to justify a shot if they win out the season.


BTW, I am not a Boise fan... :D Seriously.

Well, that's the business I am in. Family has worked in college football since before I was born. I think I might have an idea how it works.

Alabama wins agains LSU we move to number five. Beat MSU, we move to four. Beat a number one or two AUburn we jump to either two or three. Beat South Carolina in the SECC it erases, in a lot of voters minds, our one loss since it was to them and will be seen as a fluke and we move into a solid two. Playing, most likely, Oregon.

Not an easy road by any stretch but it can be done. The easy road was taken by other schools and that is why they will not be rewarded.

Some schools don't get as much of a choice in their schedule as you seem to think they do. There are umpteen dozen examples of teams from AQ conferences that have beaten Big conference teams... the student athletes are exactly that, no matter what school they got a scholarship from.

Also, no offense intended, but the computers that determine BCS rankings are anything but predictable. No matter what your experience is, your ''idea of how it works'' might not matter when it comes to the final rankings. How often are the guys on TV wrong when it comes to predicting BCS rankings? No

Duke, a national powerhouse for two decades, beat them by 2. Did Butler deserve to be in that game? I think so. BUT, they weren't from a Big Conference and didn't play top level teams all season. So, by the many arguements on here, they didn't deserve to play for it. Same thing in football, minus the tourney.

Who says that an AQ school (Utah, Boise, TCU) couldn't roll through a football playoff? We will never know unless they put a playoff in. Just don't think it's fair that AQ schools are brushed off because of the conference they play in...

as much as I'd love to see that happen they've already said because they play in the measly Mountain West conference it won't happen. If Bama runs the tables the rest of the season the media is predicting Bama and Oregon. I'm as much for a playoff season as everyone else is. The Bowl game of 2008 is just a strong showing of what Utah is capable of doing to any team on a solid day. The Utes just flat out played Bama that year and with as strong as the Utes are looking this year could do it again. What I wouldn't do to see that rematch from 08 for the NC game. All 3 teams show that they deserve to be in a higher conference with tougher opponents to show they deserve to be ranked where they are. I know the Utes are going to the PAC 12 but not sure of the other teams. Just wish I could watch the TCU/UTES game this weekend.

If Oregon, BSU and TCU are all undefeated by the end of the season, then why don't they just look at the one common opponent for all three(Oregon State). See how all 3 teams performed against them and the best 2 get to go to the Championship. Right now, that would put BSU in and not TCU, but we have to wait and see how the Ducks do in the "Civil War".

Judging a team by one W or one L, is usually where college football trolls roam. Oregon State in September was a very different team than they are now or will be in December vs Oregon. Judge a team on the total body of work. That's why TCU just had a huge weekend, much more to judge them on now.

That is the weakest arguement there is. Same roster, same coaching staff... VT was a different team then to, so the argument against BSU is that VT didn't play well. Who's to say that the performance VT put up was because of the opponent they were playing? The same could be said for the BSU vs Oregon State game.

It's really cheap and without basis when fans need to downplay a teams wins based on when they played X team.

It's not weak at all. And not anti-Boise. It is pro Boise. OSU has zero defense, so it rides on it's O. James Rodgers is out for the season. He took all the heat off of Katz and his brother. So Oregon will play a beat up and lifeless beaver team maybe without even a bowl game at stake for them? I wouldnt compare that to the team TCU and Boise beat.

After the Bama loss yesterday, it seems like the real question is who should be in the title game if Oregon or Auburn slips up? Right now I would say TCU, but honestly, its too close to call, sure to be some very upset fans.

If Oregon and Auburn win out, I can't really see a real case for TCU or Boise. Schedule strength just isn't there. SEC is tough, and according to last Sagarin ratings, Pac 10 is the toughest coference(although, not sure I even believe that, but it is surely a tougher road than the WAC or MWC).

I hear people talking about a one loss LSU team making it in without even going to its conference championship game? That truely would be unjust, and maybe really stoke the playoff talk.

Troll......................now that's funny!!!!! Judging the season on one game is exactly what the BCS Championship game does. The winning team could have one loss on the season ,as well as several other teams, but because they won THAT game they are crowned champs. Although, if you had actually read my post, I said only if the three teams all finished undefeated. Then you would be using that game as a tie breaker. I do believe many other sports look at head to head match ups and or common match ups for tie breakers.

Well, maybe I misunderstood you. Luckily we don't need to use the common opponent to decide, we have the BCS, and the formula will decide for us. I don't really see how the BCS is that terrible. I guess if people don't like the results of the formula, it can be changed yet again at the end of the season. Its screwed my team before, and this year, maybe it will and maybe it won't, but I do respect that its the rules we set out with when the season began.

I just read this on Rivals.com. Notice Oregons strength of schedule.

THE BCS: A CLOSER LOOK
Here is the fourth BCS top 5 of the season, with the school, its spot in the Harris poll, its spot in the coaches' poll and its BCS computer average. We've also included the NCAA's schedule strength, which is not part of the BCS formula.

Team Harris Coaches Comp. SOS
1. Oregon 1st 1st 3rd 94th
2. Auburn 2nd 2nd 1st 7th
3. TCU 3rd 3rd 2nd 60th
4. Boise State 4th 4th 5th 70th
5. LSU (10) 6th 6th 4th 4th

Yes, that's true now, we all know that. I thought we were talking about who should be in the BCS Championship should we have a bunch of undefeateds at the end of the season. Oregon's schedule is backloaded. If they win out, their SOS will jump Boise for sure.

Our SOS has generally climbed all season. Can't go anywhere but up when you start with New Mexico, hahaha. When we play Arizona that will add to things for sure. OSU and Cal are generally better than the average team that we have played so far, so that should help things as well, but I haven't seen the actual numbers.

I think our computer average is high as the BCS rewards your "signature" win. And that is Stanford, which looks pretty good now.

So the Ducks and the Tigers have the NC game in hand IF they win out. TCU and Boise have to hope one of those two loses in order to make it to the show. Even though TCU is ahead of BSU right now, the Broncos toughest remaining opponent (#21 Nevada) may give them an edge in the polls come seasons end.

Something tells me there are a bunch more losses coming, and this thing ends up as a big mess. Oregon lost their second string QB on a special teams play, and he is the only other QB that can reasonably run the offense. If Darron Thomas goes down, the run is over.

USC stomps UF in the Swamp

Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla.(AP)

.http://vmedia.rivals.com/uploads/882/1020626.jpghttp://vmedia.rivals.com/images/spacer1.gifhttp://vmedia.rivals.com/images/spacer1.gif
Steve Spurrier beat Urban Meyer for the 2nd time in six tries and in doing so won the SEC East.

The Ol' Ball Coach notched a huge win at his ol' stomping grounds
After years of being the top Gator, Steve Spurrier led South Carolina to its first division crown in the stadium he nicknamed The Swamp.

Marcus Lattimore ran 40 times for a career-high 212 yards and three touchdowns, Stephen Garcia played turnover-free and the 22nd-ranked Gamecocks upset No. 24 Florida 36-14 Saturday night to clinch the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division.
The Gamecocks won for the second time in 19 tries against Florida, snapped an 0-for-12 streak in Gainesville and earned a spot in the league title game for the first time. South Carolina (7-3, 5-3 SEC) will play second-ranked Auburn on Dec. 4, with the winner advancing to the Bowl Championship Series.
The Gators (6-4, 4-4) lost to a division opponent for the first time in 17 games, dropped their third consecutive home game and proved they didn't deserve to play for a championship. It's the program's first three-game losing streak at home since 1989.
South Carolina started celebrating after Garcia's 8-yard TD run early in the fourth that put the Gamecocks ahead 29-7. Players and fans got even more raucous after Lattimore's 11-yard scoring run with 2:43 remaining.
Players doused Spurrier with - what else? - Gatorade with 1:01 remaining. Spurrier spent the final few seconds with cameras in his face, then got carried to midfield on players' shoulders.
Spurrier's Florida teams went 63-5 in Gainesville.

He had plenty of important wins along the way - Kentucky in 1991, Florida State in 1991 and 1995, South Carolina in 2000 - but only that one against the Wildcats clinched a title.



So this one certainly will stand out. It's one Florida won't forget, either.
Andre Debose returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, but it was one of the few highlights the Gators could muster in a game that will go down as one of the worst in school history - even more painful than anything in the Ron Zook era.
Spurrier may have even been embarrassed for his alma mater, the school he developed into a college football powerhouse during his 12 season as coach.
The first quarter was all anyone needed to watch to see how the game would unfold: The Gators ran 18 plays for 51 yards, failed to convert a third down, punted five times and had five penalties.
The Gamecocks had to settle for three field goals from Spencer Lanning, who hit from 49, 47 and 41 yards. He also banged an extra point off the left upright following Lattimore's 7-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.
There was little else South Carolina did wrong.
Garcia had his first turnover-free game since late September. He completed 15 of 22 passes for 156 yards. He added 28 yards on the ground.
Lattimore, the league's second-leading rushing behind Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, demoralized Florida with every carry. He ran 21 times for 83 yards in the first half, then added a backbreaking, 21-yard TD run to cap South Carolina's opening drive of the second half.
Alshon Jeffrey, the SEC's leading receiver, came up with several key third-down receptions and was Garcia's safety valve. Jeffrey caught six passes for 53 yards.
South Carolina finished with 395 yards, 169 more than Florida.
The Gators were downright pathetic all night. Meyer called for a ``blue out,'' asking fans to wear head-to-toe blue to match the team's all-blue uniforms. But after Debose's crowd-pleasing kickoff return, the rest of the night was more of a ``boo out.''
It looked little like the Gators who beat Georgia and Vanderbilt the last two weeks. Florida's three-headed quarterback system - the one nicknamed ``Threebow'' because it took three guys to do everything Tim Tebow did so well the last three years - was mostly ineffective.
John Brantley took most of the snaps and completed 16 of 31 passes for 130 yards, with an interception. Trey Burton and Jordan Reed played sparingly. Reed threw a 26-yard TD pass to Chris Rainey late, but was stopped short on a fourth-down run near midfield earlier.
Even after a lackluster first half and time to regroup in the locker room, the Gators were inept. They had just 16 yards in the third quarter.
Maybe the most telling play of Florida's problems came on the first drive of the second half. Brantley, who has clearly been a misfit in the spread option, had a pass tipped at the line of scrimmage.



The ball sailed backward and toward Brantley. Instead of batting it to the ground, Brantley caught it for a 10-yard loss.

Predictable result in this game...

I disagree - FSU played well this year. Had Ponder started I feel sure the Noles would have more competitive.

The Noles may have played well this year, but the Hookies were clearly the better team on paper, and they showed it on the field.

So ... if they were ineligable as the report states, it begs a question. Why would OSU not vacate all their wins this year? The public answer - because OSU did not explain it well enough to the students. The REAL answer - because this is OSU and the Sugar bowl was throwing a fit!!!

I'm sure the NCAA was throwing a fit as well, without those players, the game becomes less interesting and would therefore be less profitable. You are right, the NCAA is a mess. They can make millions....but don't you dare sign autographs for tattoos, you need to pay for them!...and don't you dare sell those awards! Well, then don't award physical/tangible items for awards. How silly.

I have a question....the tattoo shop that supposedly turned them in...how much business do you think they are going to get once people find out who they are? Better yet, do you think they will have any windows left in the building? :rolleyes:

I guess he is looking at it and is considering it. I would think it would depend on where they say he would go in the draft. Would staying for another season, even shortened by suspension, boost his draft status therefore getting him more money? That will answer the question as most decisions like this are money based.

I am a little different whereas I would stay because if I were in his shoes I would see it as a privlidge to play for OSU.....and, no offense, I would want to beat meatchichens *** again. I'm sure a lot of guys there see it as a launch pad for big money. How I see it if I were him and how I see it if I were in his shoes are two different questions.
