Default Official BCS Standings thread

This Sunday will be the first BCS standings of the year.

ESPN's Brad Edwards has a mock BCS standings of what he thinks they'd look like if they came out this past Sunday.

Quote:
1. Boise State - .913
2. Oregon - .863
3. TCU - .854
4. Okahoma - .8425
5. Ohio State - .8421
6. LSU - .782
7. Nebraska - .777
8. Auburn - .744
9. Mich State - .642
10. Alabama - .634

Pretty surprising. Boise State #1. Ohio State #5.

We can have someone post in this thread with each week's new rankings. I, for one, think there will be lots of changing from week to week.

Thoughts? Discuss....





And go Ducks!

Boise State is not touching the NC game. There is no way the BCS would let that happen.

Michigan State has Illinois, @ Northwestern, @ Iowa, Minnesota, Purdue, @ Penn St left. One loss is most likely, but they really could go undefeated. Michigan State. Undefeated.

I'd be pretty shocked if OSU was #5.

It's because their strength of schedule is still weak.

If either Ohio St or Oregon loses and Boise St runs the table, they indeed will be in the Natl Championship game regardless of what happens. The Big 12 champ won't make it either. Reason being that Boise St. started the season highly ranked versus the subsequential team that had to scratch and claw their way up in the rankings. You can cross out Alabama too. The idea of them working their way back to the title game by winning the SEC champ game won't be enough either. That's just media hype.

Like it or not, Boise St has the advantage over everyone else except Ohio St and Oregon.

That being said, Boise St will get their arses handed to them in the title game. In fact, I'll as far to say that as least half of the teams in the top 25 can beat them on a neutral field

Never thought I'd see the day that Boise State and TCU were in the top 3 for the BCS.

The only really bad thing about this is that the pro-BCS crowd can point to it and say that a playoff isn't necessary.

I'd like to believe that, but I think you underestimate the power of the illegal cartel that runs college football.

The computer modules that factor into the BCS include strength of schedule. Aside from Nevada, Boise doesn't have a game remaining that's going to help it's sos. Because the systems consistently overrate mediocre teams because of the cartel conference to which they belong, Bama will gain plenty of sos points if they should run the table the rest of the way.

Also factored into the BCS are the Harris & USA Today Coaches poll. Teams are awarded points based on how many votes they receive. All it will take is the coaches from the monopoly to shift their votes slightly to drop Boise out of contention for the top spot.

It's been done before, and they'll do it again. No way they'll take the chance of people being able to actually see Boise beat one of their hand-picked powerhouses in the Make Believe Title Game.

The college football cartel is as insidious as any other organized crime syndicate. The result will be what they want it to be.

I dont see Boise St playing for the national championship until they get themselves a legit schedule. When your two best wins are home games(smurf turf advantage) vs a VT team that got beaten by James Madison, and a mediocre Oregon state team, you dont deserve to go to the national championship, period. A lot of teams would go undefeated with Boise's joke ass schedule. Schedule a few difficult road games and they might get a shot at the title.

I can't believe LSU is that high. The offense has been terrible all year. We will lose at least one before it's over though. And cya Ohio St., back to the end of the list. Also I like that smurf turf term .

Their game against VT was in Washington D.C. on a "neutral" field. If anything, though, it was a home game for VT.

Other than that, I agree with everything else.

I get annoyed by people saying Boise not playing in the national championship is some sort of conspiracy because the NCAA doesn't want to see one of their powers lose to Boise. Until Boise moves to a legitimate conference where they are playing 4-6 tough games a year instead of the 1 or 2 they currently play, then they don't deserve to play for a national championship, unless the SEC, Big 12, Big 10, and Pac-10 champions all have 2+ losses, and Boise is undefeated.

Well, looks like we'll get to listen to playmaker some for awhile since Brad Edwards' new projected top 5 for the BCS is...

1. Oklahoma
2. Boise State
3. TCU
4. Oregon
5. Auburn

Auburn won't win out, their defense is awful, the've lived life on the edge too much this year, and will slip up and lose somewhere. I would have to believe if Oregon wins out they would eventually jump TCU and Boise, but OU doesn't really have a tough schedule left, and their next tough game will be against Nebraska or Missouri in the Big 12 CG.
