    Oklahoma and Oregon will both lose because they play real teams while Boise gets to beat up the WHACK and brag about beating a shitty Va Tech team

    Lot of games left to go. It's hard for me to see anyone bumping Oklahoma and Oregon if they run the table, but you never know.

    Boise State is probably screwed, unless everyone else in the top 10 flops.

    Assuming reports were correct that Boise would have been number one followed by Oregon last week, it's remarkable that Oregon is now ahead. Boise State won 48-0 and the Ducks were idle.

    Oklahoma will lose this season. Auburn will lose this season.
    Oregon may not lose, but if so they'll play a one-loss team in the BCS title game. Boise and TCU will go unbeaten and be shut out...if the powers that be have their way, they'll play each other again.

    It's a bullshit system. Those are my bullshit prognostications.

    TCU would like a word with everyone.

    The excellent Chris Dufresne points out that it used to be much worse:


    The upcoming columns bemoaning the BCS always remind me of USC fans who bitched about recent Rose Bowl berths. How quickly they forgot the Paul Hackett years.

    The memories of Penn State and Michigan getting screwed in the 1990s are still fresh for me, so I'm good with the BCS.

    The system went from horrendous to pretty bad.

    It's an improvement...but it's far from what it should be.

    I guess the dude -- it's unofficial, but he's always right -- who said Boise would be No. 1 in the first BCS standings was ... uh ... not right.

    By the same token - if the current system was in place in the 1990's Michigan would not have a national title in 1997 or whatever year it was they shared with Nebraska because they'd have had to play Nebraska in the bowl game instead of Washington State and the Cornhuskers would have shitstomped them into the ground.
