Our Thoughts

Brian – Well Virginia Tech did the BCS and Longhorn fans a favor Saturday and didn’t bother showing up. Marcus Vick fumbled away their national title hopes while the Miami offense (with several starters on the sideline) ran it right down their throats. UCLA also went down in a fiery blaze (as expected) to a below average Arizona team. I guess if you’re going to blow an undefeated season, you might as well do it in style. Those losses combined with Ohio State, Texas Tech, and wins Colorado solidified Texas’ ranking in the BCS and in my poll.

Alabama may be the worst #4 ranked, 9 and 0 SEC team in history. Their offense is embarassing, they haven’t scored an offensive touchdown in the last sixteen quarters of SEC play. I was tempted to drop them to fifth behind LSU, but that will settle itself on the field this weekend.

Matt – Like I have been saying, everything will work itself out in the end, and this weekend went a long way to prove that you shouldn’t be so concerned about the BCS in October. If more of the voters had actually seen Virginia Tech’s (unimpressive) play, this wouldn’t have been as much of an issue.

Now I have Texas Tech all the way up to #7, and I still truly believe that they are better than all the 1 loss teams below them. Texas looked as dominant as ever, and the game actually ended up pretty boring to watch. Southern Cal’s offense looked impressive in the first half, and luckily their subs gave up a couple of touchdowns so that Stanford covered the spread and gave me the win. And like they were saying on TV about UCLA, if you are going to go down, why not go down in flames.

This weekend will probably be the weekend for Alabama to lose, so then we can stop all that crazy talk about the SEC being screwed out of another BCS title game. Bottomline, the SEC isn’t as good as everyone thinks they are. They play most of their games in conference, and whenever they venture out against other good teams, they get spanked like Tennessee did.

    LSU has to be the most over-rated #5 team in the nation ever.

    Yeah, the order of Miami, Alabama, LSU, FSU, and Penn State really bugged me.

    Is it just me or did you forget that Florida State lost this past weekend?

    AHHHHHH! No I just think they’re so good they should stay there despite sucking ass. Crap! I’m going to change it tonight.
