Meh. LSU is largely a myth IMO. They'd get rolled by Florida right now if they played. They needed two miracles to avoid losing three freaking home games.

Throw em all in a hat. Personally, I think Florida and USC are the two best teams in the country right now, with WVU having an argument. Even tOSU rolled in all their games except the one loss.

Edit: Note, I think the B12 is horrid.

i really dont think any team that loses to stanford has any sort of legitimate claim to being the best team in the nation

Identical types of losses happen in basketball all the time and no one cares.

Fact is that on a neutral field right now, USC is I'm guessing no bigger than a 3pt dog to anyone and favorites against most, including the two top teams right now.

1. Missouri
2. LSU
3. West Virginia
4. OSU
5. Virginia Tech
6. Kansas
7. Georgia
8. Oklahoma
9. Florida
10. USC
11. Arizona State
12. Illinois
13. Boston College
14. Hawaii
15. Tennessee
16. Clemson
17. Texas
18. Wisconsin
19. Auburn
20. Arkansas

I would put Oregon somewhere in the 17-20 range if they had a QB.

Clark- Teams lose games they are favored by 40 in all the time in basketball?

I'm just really hoping Mizzou loses in the Big 12 championship and WVU loses to Pitt so we can possibly sneak an SEC team into the championship game and watch them once again blow out inferior opposition.

Horrid losses happen all the time.

Off the top of my head, 04-05 UNC, one of the more heralded teams to win it all this decade, lost to Santa Clara by 11. I'm not going to dig up tons of examples, but the fact is that USC is going to win arguably the toughest conference in the country this year, they had huge injury issues, and they'd likely be no more than slight dogs against anyone right now and prob favored against most.

Are you people doing this just to tilt me personally?
"Once again" as in twice, right? It happened last year in one bowl game. Why didn't the SEC exercise it's magic powers in previous years or in the other bowls? Or, for that matter, why did SEC East champion UT lose to Cal and Alabama?

There is absolutely no reason to believe that SEC teams are systemically underrated.

I wouldn't think you could compare basketball to football actually.
