The new BCS formula for NC this season is as follows: AP poll, Coaches' poll and Computer rankings (exclusive of the NYT poll) counts for one-third of BCS ranking. Strength of schedule, # of losses and quality win points are history. Teams like USC who play nobody cannot be penalized with a #74 SOS. It still should boil down to the unbeatens ... most every year ... and this does not favor LSU with a tough conference slate ... Even yet, ~I~F~ 2004 ends exactly as 2003 with LSU on top ... I can guarantee USC will play crybaby again and claim a NC. This new formula sux and only favors teams like USC and encourages rent-a-win scheduling to pad the win column.
