    Sadly it looks like we could be subjected to another All-SEC Championship if USC does their job and beats ND depending on how things shake out. The computers hate Oregon and I swear the SEC has gaming this system down to a science:


    • 8 Conference games: Check
    • Set up the divisions to minimize the matchups between your power teams: Check
    • Get all your teams ranked in the pre-season so you get maximum credit when you beat conference teams: Check
    • Minimize potential for OOC losses: Check
    • Lose early if you have to lose (see this past weeks SEC matchups): Check

    Here are the BCS standings in their entirety:

    1. Notre Dame
    2. Alabama

    4. Florida
    5. Oregon

    8. Stanford
    9. Texas A&M

    UCLA moved up 1 spot? That's ridiculous.

    They beat a USC team that can't seem to get out of their own way, not all that impressive. They actually moved up 3 spots in the Harris poll.

    Can't see ND losing to USC without Barkley. Bama/Georgia will slip after the SEC title game. Florida could lose to FSU the way they have been playing as of late. If ND were to lose, Oregon could still slide into the BCS title game, need some pieces to fall but it's not too far fetched.

    So I guess we're looking at an ND-Bama/UGA title game.

    You forgot to add a couple of facts in there:
    1. They were the unanimous #1 team before they lost
    2. Two of the teams ranked ahead of them just lost yesterday.

    It all comes down to the ACC/SEC matchups this Saturday. If FSU and Clemson knock off Florida and South Carolina then there's a major shift in conference strength.

    It is what it is. Oregon and KSU dropped the ball and Bama can take advantage. Just sucks that nobody else wants to play them out of the game. Last year they got a mulligan that I hated and they'll probably do the same this year.

    I don't think that will matter. Alabama will beat Georgia and then ND and they'll just endlessly talk about winning the last 7 or whatever BCS championship games.

    I wonder how much Barkley has cost himself. I'm thinking at least $10 million.

    I would not go with 'major shift'. Those are the top two ACC teams playing the 3rd and 5th SEC team. I still expect both of them to win.

    I felt the same way about USC a couple of years ago.

    You are one of the few here that do take your football posting seriously.

    There might be a slight shift but if ND beats underachieving USC and neither UGA or Bama trips up this weekend then the BCS title game will be ND against Bama/UGA, that's a guarantee. Buf if ND loses and Florida loses, that opens the door for Oregon or KSU to play the SEC champ. At that point I'd say Oregon would deserve to go, assuming beat Oregon State of course

    Not on SOS / Computer Rankings.

    I really think the computers could change quite a lot with ACC wins. They'll change in a big way if GT beats UGA. You also better hope that Mizzou doesn't beat aTm.

    USC was ranked #1 preseason. Oregon was also highly ranked.
