Honestly, the only real discussion is LSU or USC.

[/ QUOTE ]

If you are considering USC you have to consider Oklahoma.

[/ QUOTE ]

No you don't. Before today, here are the Sagarin SOS numbers for those two.

Oklahoma #67
USC #33

[/ QUOTE ]

One of USC's losses is so utterly terrible though.

[/ QUOTE ]

But but but

Stanford beat Cal
Cal beat Tennessee
Tennessee beat Georgia
Georgia is #4 right now

OU beat Missouri by 21 points. Not by 1, not by 3, by 21. And they only lost to Texas Tech because Bradford was out.

If it was just the 2-loss team with the best SOS vs. the best 1-loss team, we'd be looking at Ohio State/Missouri.

This just in: Mizzou has been overrated all year. Just like Kansas. And South Florida. And Cal. And BC. And West Virginia.

You guys need to stop talking about the idiotic human polls like they mean anything.

[/ QUOTE ]

Where did I mention the polls? The point is that Missouri went 11-0 this year in games against teams not named Oklahoma including wins over otherwise 11-0 Kansas and otherwise 9-2 Illinois. They were most certainly not "overrated".

Beating them once at a neutral site is a better win than is held by any of the top contenders. Beating them twice including a 3 TD win at a neutral site is much, much better than anything the top contenders have done.

The Illini and the Jayhawks both played easy, easy, easy schedules. That makes it easy to have a good record. All you're doing now is rewarding bad conferences and awful schedules.

USC and LSU were #1 and #2 at the start of the season. They played in the toughest conferences in the nation, and nothing has changed. Those are the teams, in whatever order you prefer.

the Illini played an easy schedule ? [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Not the hardest, but not easy

they did go 5-3 against bowl elgible teams

they did play the top 4 in the Big11Ten other than themselves

they did play Mizzou in St. Louis, which is a 60/40 Mizzou crowd

Somewhere in there USC lost to Stanford. I swear this happened, whether you acknowledge it as meaningful or not. So yes, things did change.

But lol at you, who blasts others for using meaningless polls, going back to cite the [censored] preseason polls, the most irrelevant of all rankings.

What is your explanation for the computers liking OSU more than USC or LSU? Are they also biased against the SEC?

I agree. People write off this USC loss as a fluke and I agree it was a fluke. But it did indeed happen and USC should be punished for it accordingly.

I still don't get how this is relevant while OU's loss to Tech is forgotten.

Who's forgetting it? OU isn't going to the title game AFAIK. It's been taken into consideration and will, along with their loss to Colorado, keep them out of the title game. Just like USC's loss to Stanford will do the same. What am I missing here?

I guess LSU gets the shot, and will destroy OSU in basically a repeat of last years title game lesson: The Big-10 is total crap compared to the SEC.


[/ QUOTE ]

Yes, a lesson really reinforced by the other bowl game match ups last year.

The Big Ten was the best conference in America as recently as 2005. Stop being stupid. Please.

[/ QUOTE ]

Um, it's 2007, and the Big Ten is awful. That's all that matters.

[/ QUOTE ]

Agreed, and not to get sidetracked, but Big-10 as the best in '05? I strongly disagree, but this is not the thread for it.
