I love that Auburn and Oregon did not crack the top 32. I love it.

College football only needs one thing to be changed: it needs a fucking playoff system.

I still don't understand why I was supposed to be excited by Penn State winning the Orange Bowl in 2005 when I believed them to be good enough to at least play for the championship. I mean, what did they win? A consellation prize?

And then yesterday my brother was rooting FOR Ohio State, the team he dislikes most, because, "For Penn State to move up in the BCS, they need a better strength of schedule, so Ohio State needs to win." I don't like that we have to root for rivals because of a computer system. In college basketball do you root for your rivals to win in other games? Methinks not.

Hence, why it needs a playoff system.

I'm not sure why I didn't see you in the sea of 106000

It was an ugly game. But they won. To quote Rodriguez, " I would rather win ugly than lose pretty".

Already started to get very amped for the Trojan/Buckeye game on Saturday. I don't see Ohio St winning, but, I do hope they make a game of it. I guess they have a fighting chance if Wells is healthy. He's definitely playing, but who knows if he's 100% or not. Pretty cool to have such a big game in week 3 of the season.

I concur...I can't believe that a game with National Championship implications is being played this early!!!

If we're not going to have a playoff, at least get rid of the polls until late September or October.

Too many good teams get handicapped early in the year because of the screwy poll system. You can't honestly predict who is #1 team in nation, or even top 3 until you see a few games.

THe very few times I flip on the radio, this is all I hear about. I'm pretty excited about this game myself.

Last I heard, he was doubtful.....but maybe you heard something different. They were already fucked, but without him, they're double fucked.

The BCS standings don't come out until midseason.

Of course, one of the ingredients that goes into the BCS standings is the USA Today coaches' poll, which does start at the beginning of the season and therefore does have initial-position bias. Oops.
