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 ]

This is irrelevant because neither OU or USC is going, but even considering SOS, USC has a really bad loss (to Stanford) to take into account. OU only has a pedestrian bad loss (to Colorado) to consider.

[/ QUOTE ]

OU also lost to Texas Tech, who got beaten by all of Oklahoma State, Missouri, Colorado and Texas.

[/ QUOTE ]

Okay? Texas Tech is a borderline top-25 team, and is 22 in Sagarin predictor. Stanford is in the bottom third of Div 1-A.

[/ QUOTE ]

I'm just saying, you can't call it a "borderline" bad loss as much when you lost to a team that ALSO lost to them, and 3 others. Maybe just IMO, but I think it makes sense.

Your biggest games of the year have been:

1. Beating an 8-4 team by 11 points
2. Losing to a BCS team
3. ???
4. Beating Columbus High School?

Stick OSU in the SEC, and then let's see how well they do.

[/ QUOTE ]

They'd have between 1-3 losses. They went 11-1 against the 56th most difficult schedule. I'm not sure how that's worse than going 10-2 against the 33rd(including a home loss to a 39 point dog).

Nice job on saying some wrong [censored], getting corrected, and barreling on like it didn't happen. You could work in politics.

ESPN BCS guru is saying that since Oklahoma won, LSU will jump over Georgia, Kansas and Virginia Tech to play Ohio State

UPDATE: Edited as to not look like fool.

Bingo. USC's losses are to a horrible, horrible team on a flukey fade pass,

[/ QUOTE ]

Was that the only play of the game? Perhaps if USC was better then they couldn't be beaten by a flukey fade pass.

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.

[/ QUOTE ]

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.

Ugh. I didn't know what to root for going into the day b/c (1) a title game without an SEC or Pac-10 team is LOL and (2) OSU having a shot at the title is also LOL.

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.

Also, UGA in the title game is way f'ed up. How can a team that didn't even play for their conf. title get a nat'l title shot? WTF? Again, the fact that some conferences have champ. games and others do not is also f'ed up - such a huge advantage for those who don't have the champ. game.

D

PS OSU sucks, and I hate them.

OU lost to TTU in every phase of the game. That game was straight-up domination.

Stanford is no worse than Colorado/Texas Tech

[/ QUOTE ]

Sagarin rankings:

Texas Tech - 31
Colorado - 52
Stanford - 82

[/ QUOTE ]

Oregon with Dixon - 1

Bingo. USC's losses are to a horrible, horrible team on a flukey fade pass, and then to the top team in the nation in a nailbiter.

[/ QUOTE ]

Wait. But Stanford is not = Colorado/Texas Tech. They're demonstrably worse. I understand why it matters that the game was close and fluky stuff happened, but does Oklahoma get to hand-wave away the 4th quarter of their game against Colorado? They were up 24-10 in the 4th quarter, then some fluky [censored] happened. Do we get to forget about that too, or just when bad stuff happens to USC?

This is true. But it's one week, and their QB was basically playing without a finger. Do we really think Stanford would come within 35 points of USC if they played at full health?
