    I would seriously challenge anybody---anybody---to adequately refute the points made in this article.

    Very well reasoned, very well done.

    I'll make this point ... Mr. Anderson skillfully avoided noting the severity of the 35-7 ass whipping that KSU put on OKLA.

    On this point alone ... your argument folds.

    Collegefootballnews.com and its' poll have this to say. And they make a few good points too ... I won't argue with their #1 pick

    That's what I've been saying the last week

    I'm for a playoff system but if the bcs is the best we can do.

    I was wrong about it.

    The prejudice human polls is the problem.

    If you read the comments from Chris Fowler and the Cal coach
    like I did you would be horrified.
    We need to stop the human polls from happening.

    Chris Fowler said basically:
    I weighted the 2 teams, Fla was better than Cal but usc had the
    closest to a perfect season missing a field goal in ot.

    Nevermind, LSU beat 2 top 5 teams and a top 25 team
    Nevermind, usc beat 1 top 25 team only.

    Cal coach said I don't get to see the other team much.

    That speaks for itself.

    No internet or radio, tv there, they must still be having blackouts

    The only reason usc offense is humming is because they haven't
    played anybody like LSU and OU.

    The closest D was Oregan ST, everyone else's D out there is in
    the 100's

    LSU's D is humming, and has been more consistant than usc's
    offense so why aren't we #1 then???

    Where is usc's Defense???

    I wonder what idiots like cal coach and Fowler would say about,

    USC has NO DEFENSE! Your not gonna tell ME that SHIT!
    You're not gonna tell that to #1 PRESEASON FAVORITE AUBURN

    Remember ............. USC 23 - Auburn------>ZERO

    That's enough of a damned barometer for my respect.

    This link has USC at #21 ... a fair asessment ... don't look at statistics without checking all the categories.

    We've had homers in here trying to tell us OK has the #1 Dee.

    Are we to assume, Ramah, that when LSU has it's long awaited NC trophy and all the talking heads want to do is call USC the "Real" Champion that you will be happy as the proverbial Pig in Shit? You need to get off of that USC bandwagon dude. I've defended you here but you are really getting tough to deal with. The "Ignore" function is beckoning.

    That was a great read SabanFan, it backs up what I've been saying all along about the BCS.

    Didn't Auburn have to wait until they played Vanderbilt before they scored a touchdown, and in between USC and Vandy they only scored 3 points on Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech being the same school that let Clemson score 39, Vandy score 24, UNC score 41, and Duke score 41 points on them. For the first 2 and a half games Auburn incorrectly thought they were supposed to be a passing team.

    Exactly. And, the USC- Auburn game was in doubt until midway through the 4th quarter. LSU had em whipped in 5 minutes.
