    I'd go with Dye's masturbation obsession.

    I had LSU No. 4.
    I don't know what the fuck Dyepack/Poloponies/Sauronseye is talking about.
    Gotta give the fucktard some credit for sticking to his guns though.
    Most here would concede the point after seeing a head-to-head matchup, but not him. He's sticking with the poll was rigged to get Florida in the title game, when they didn't deserve to be. And he's right, the poll was adjusted to avoid a matchup that wouldn't have proved anything.
    Just more TV people and Big 11 alumni sitting around, rubbing their thighs together talking about how great the Big 11 is. And I'm talking to you Herbstreit.
    The BCS is a bad system, but if it wasn't around, it just would have meant that USC would have crushed Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. Florida would have beaten Michigan in the Sugar and Oklahoma would have gotten gutted by LSU in the Orange. Boise would have been perfect, but no one would have cared about some 13-0 team that won the Holiday Bowl.

    Rutgers should have beaten West Virginia and would have if it hadn't been for the ref blowing a call in regulation or a wide receiver dropping a TD pass in regulation (take your pick). Rutgers would have gotten a better bowl if all the bowl matchups hadn't been pre-determined by conference contracts. A 10-2 team should not have gotten the bullshit bowl Rutgers was forced to play in because they were third place in the Big East.

    None of which is a reason Rutgers should be ranked higher than West Virginia. The ol' "if you just took out 2 plays" argument does not stand. Ask Herm why you play.

    Rutgers deserved its fate because it laid a great big egg against Cincinnati. They have no one to blame for their fate but themselves.

    But the part of your argument that Rutgers shouldn't be ahead of West Virginia because they lost to them doesn't stand up either. West Virginia lost to Louisville, but Louisville lost to Rutgers. So based on head-to-head, who comes out on top?

    Can't argue with you there. The choke job in Cincy did in their bowl fate.

    The whole bowl system sucks. Scrap the bowl contracts. You have your four-five BCS bowls. After the season ends first weekend in December, have one week of open bidding for the other bowls, let the bowls compete for which teams they want instead of being locked into a conference's No. 2 or 3 team. At the end of the week have a bowl selection show and show all the matchups plus the BCS matchups.

    Louisville lost one game. Rutgers and West Virginia both lost two. In the event of a TIE, look at head-to-head. Also, Rutgers finished its season 2-2. The victories were vs. Syracuse and Kansas State, neither ranked. West Virginia finished 3-1, defeated ranked Rutgers and ACC runner-up Georgia Tech. I don't see where this is a close comparison.

    The people who are ranking LSU ahead of USC need to find a clue.
