Florida moved up to #2 in the rankings!! We need to get on our knees and pray that we beat Alabama convincingly.

After beating Citadel, why wouldn't they be #2? Oklahoma definitely didn't deserve that spot either.

I thought we might stay at #3 even though we beat them...they were an unranked nothing team Oklahoma's win was a "better" win.

We're #2 in the BCS.

Guess we're not dead in the water after all, huh?

I'm beginning to think even an OU win over Okie Lite won't propel them past us. This is provided, of course, we take care of business against aggy on Thanksgiving Day.

I think a lot of the gains OU made in the human polls were reaction to their complete mudholing of Tech in primetime. When voters sit down for their final ballots, I think they'll weigh things differently and remember how, on a sunny October afternoon, Texas beat OU by double digits on a neutral field.


Furthermore, everyone seems to agree that the winner of the Florida/Bama game will be in the MNC. If that logic holds, shouldn't the winner of the Texas/OU game go since those two round out the top four?


Oh wait, we already played that game.

Texas Tech is getting screwed -- typical bias against late-season losses.

Alabama is undefeated.

TT, Texas and Oklahoma have all lost to each other, TT worse than the others, and all have pretty solid resumes otherwise.

Everyone else has lost to a team that sucks.

How can TT be #7?

I'm surprised Florida State that high in the BCS. That Maryland smackdown was the best game they've played all season and actually gave me a glimmer of hope that the Florida game will at least be kind of close. When their O-line and Special Teams get into shape, they're going to be really dangerous.

Myron Rolle winning the Rhodes Scholarship is absolutely stellar.

If Derrick Williams mans up and doesn't duck out of the way of a pass across the middle, Penn State is playing in the national championship.

God damn it.

What's the tiebreak in the Big 12, is it BCS ranking? That's going to be a bite for somebody (right now looks like OU), though on the flip side if the tiebreak winner (UT) loses in the CG I'm guessing the tiebreak loser (OU) jumps into the championship against the 'Bama/Florida winner?

Either way Tech is screwed...but to be fair they got absolutely hammered.

It's the BCS ranking. It should be like the SEC: head-to-head of the top two BCS rankings.


45-35.

The esteemed Jeff Sagarin's submission to the BCS this week ranks the Dukes No. 24, making the James Madison -- 31-7 loser to Duke in their only game against I-A competition -- the first ever I-AA/FCS team to earn BCS poll points of any kind.

This has been brewing for a while. Every Monday morning for the last few weeks, a JMU alum has messaged me on the Dukes' latest conquest in the Sagarin poll. Last week, they were ranked ahead of West Virginia. This week, they're ahead of not only the Mountaineers, but according to the ELO_CHESS rating (not Sagarin's "official" ranking, but the one actually submitted to the BCS, with margin of victory removed), they also trump LSU, Iowa, Michigan State, North Carolina, Cincinnati, Oregon, South Carolina, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Northwestern, UConn, Tulsa, South Florida, Western Michigan, Tulsa, Central Michigan and Rice, all of which are either in or received at least one vote for this week's Associated Press or Coaches polls.
once again proving why i refuse to get into college football... it's an absolute joke.
