Who wouldn't want to see USC/Ohio St. again? Lotta football to be played yet, but I think that conference comes down to the last week. Mich St. could ruin Penn St.'s championship run. We'll see.

USC? Lets just say, PAC 1, book your plane tickets now.

Whatever the record, whomever comes out of the SEC will be a legitimate "best team in the nation" contender although they may not be in the NC game. The Gators looked good last night, LSU will rebound, and Alabama will probably be #1 today. The problem is they'll be beating each other. (Same thing in the Big 12)

Apologies to Tennessee and Auburn fans; there's always next year.



Edit:
1. Texas
2. Bama
3. PennSt.

Re: College Football

Same old refrain from the SEC, we are just so good we beat each other up and don't make it to the top. Big 12 is the best conference this year. Last 25 years, most NCs= ACC, Big 12, then SEC. That said, the NC game will probably be the Big 12 champion vs the SEC champion.

Umm ... I don't think so. Penn State is for real this year, and they are going to SMOKE the Buckeyes in Columbus, and they're going to roll Mich State. Mark my words.

So... what happens after Missouri beats Texas? (or Kansas, or Tech)

I'll agree that the Big 12 looks strong this year, but that IS the problem. I think they will beat each other, and USC stands a good chance of waltzing their way up the polls and into the Championship game. Can they beat any of the top three teams in the Big 12 or SEC? No, but the BCS doesn't care. Penn State controls their own destiny; if they run the table in that weak conference they will be in. That leaves the Big 12 or SEC champ, out.



Oh and as far as recent history goes, let's look at the last ten years...

1998-present
ConferenceChampionshipsSchoolsBCS Championship Game Record
SEC4LSU (2007 & 2003), Florida (2006), Tennessee (1998)4-0 (1.000)
Big 122Texas (2005), Oklahoma (2000)2-3 (0.400)
Pac 101USC (2004)1-1 (0.500)
Big 101Ohio State (2002)1-2 (0.333)
Big East1Miami (2001)1-1 (0.500)*
ACC1Florida State (1999)1-0 (1.000)

Check the winning percentage. When the SEC gets in, they win. The reason they don't get in is they beat each other. That's what happens in a deep conference. The Big 12 will see it this year.

I am by no means a "homer", I like good football no matter who's playing it. Heck, my favorite team is, Anybody Playing Notre Dame...

Replace "Notre Dame" with "The Buckeyes" and I could have penned that statement.

Well, since the latest BS (I'm sorry...BCS) rankings are proving their worth once again, let's revisit this. It certainly looks like the NC game will have the SEC champ, but what happens if Missouri wins the Big 12? Do they let a team that didn't even make it to their own conference title game play for all the marbles? Does USC slide in there?

I personally don't think Missouri has much of a chance, and they should probably be playing Texas anyway. Settling things on the field doesn't seem to count for much in BCS land.



Oh, and it's a shame about Penn State...
