We are too excited about the season to have our top ten. (or too embarrassed to post them thinking they might even be worse than Manager's. Wink ) What do WE really know anyway.

Now (top 5):
1. Alabama
2. Texas
3. Virginia Tech
4. Wisconsin
5. Boise State

Final: Alabama blows out Oregon in the BCS finale'.

Yeah don't have high confidence in Boise this season, which is why I didn't put them in my BCS bowl games this year. (That said, last year's #4 team in the country returning all but one starter does deserve to start high in the pre-season)

Lane Kiffin reminds me of an old-school teenaged Duel2 manager in terms of (unjustified) arrogance.

Upset special:

Next Saturday, Skip Holtz will take a young, talented, underrated South Florida team into the Swamp and give Florida their first non-conference home loss in forever!

(I know I'm looking at this through alumnus glasses, but it could happen. USF's starters aren't that far off from Florida's, talent-wise. We just don't have anywhere near the depth the stinking Gators do)

The best team in the nation from last year returns 21 of 22 players, and they're nonsense? lolololol

Best team? Not this argument again. They played 1 ranked team (#16) oregon and won by 6, barely beat tulsa during the regular season by 7 and let Nevada score 33 points on them. Thats pathetic. The bowl game they played another overrated team in TCU.

Get in there and play someone in a real football game instead of pop warner and I will give them respect. Until then they are just not top tier football.

Ah, the ol' "they don't play anybody" argument. Yawn...

Since you want to manipulate stats, at the end of the season, Oregon was ranked 7th and TCU was ranked 4th. They both suffered losses to Boise State. On the other hand, Alabama barely beat unranked Tennessee 12-10 and unranked Auburn 26-21. THAT is pathetic!

Don't hate the player, hate the corrupt system that doesn't allow anyone outside the four biggest financial conferences contend for a "title."

Ok so lets check out who the 2 teams you selected play this year.

Alabama plays #19 Penn State, #17 Arkansas, #4 Florida, #21 LSU, #22 Auburn, then if they win the conference the conference championship.

Boise Pop Warner plays #10 VTech, #24 Oregon State and I am pretty sure they will lose 2 of their first 3 games.

Thats it, then a bowl game.

I am just sick of people placing these teams that play no one all year long into top tier bowls. At least they had the sense to put them against TCU, someone they could beat last year. I wish they would have played Alabama. It would have been an embarassment to football.

I think this article kind of sums of my feelings about Boise State (and their dilemma)

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/story/13874165/weekend-watch-list-boise-states-gone-from-loveable-to-loathed

College Football is a sport where people hate underdogs and entitlement and elitism rule. Boise's rise today (to me) is no different than Miami in the 80's. For whatever reason it takes years and years to be accepted.

Like it was for Utah? The non-AQ teams are 3-1 in BCS bowl games against BCS opponents. Certainly better than the ACC's recent performance.

And they are frequently rewarded for it as the SEC gets by far the biggest leeway when it comes to the polls. Not unusual for a 2-loss SEC team to play for the MNC.

Like when Alabama played Pop Warner Utah in 2009? You're probably right. It would have been an embarrassment to football. Or at least the SEC. Again.

And if we're playing "that" game (which is a silly way to compare teams), let's see where Auburn, LSU, Penn State, Arkansas finish at the end of the year.

I agree, after getting beat by other SEC opponents they will probably lose rankings.

As it should be. Put in the time where you play good opponents again and again. Get into a better conference where your level of play will be determined by your opponents strength. Not by simply winning games against far inferior teams.

Boise State will NEVER be a top tier program until they get into a better conference, which is what they can do, but choose not to.

They are a flash in the pan that will be gone soon.

If there is one thing I wish for it would be some sort of playoff. Then there would be no doubt if a team deserves to be there.

Top 8 Ranked teams at the end of the year, regardless of conference. #1 plays #8, etc..

Heck for those that like the bowls simply use them in the "BCS 8" rotation.
