College Football Quick Hits: The BCS Picture
With the Ducks off this week and the introduction of the first BCS rankings today, I thought it would a good time to see which teams still have legitimate national championship dreams. Most don’t. There are a lot of pretenders in the Top 10.
No. 1 (AP Poll) Alabama
The SEC is thought of as the number one conference in college football, but somehow the Tide managed to play a schedule easier than a girl at a party who has done four keg stands. Yes, I was a witness Friday night. Let’s just say she was walking with a pretty major gangsta lean from the keg to the alley. Things didn’t end well. See where I’m going?
Alabama has a nice win at VA Tech but none of their other wins are too impressive. They still have one challenging match-up when they host LSU—another overrated team—before they play Florida in the SEC championship game. With a fully healthy Tim Tebow by then, Florida should be able to roll the Tide.
No. 2 Florida
This just in: Tim Tebow is pretty good. Still my BCS pick.
No. 3 Texas
Despite only beating the Sam Bradford-less Sooners by three, the Longhorns deserve some credit for playing a tough non-conference schedule…wait. Louisiana-Monroe, Wyoming, and UTEP. Yea, seriously. Might as well play a line-up of Junior Colleges.
No. 4 USC
Their season comes down to the match-up with Oregon. I don’t see either team losing another game, save for this match-up, during the rest of the Pac-10 schedule.
No. 5 Cincinnati
This is not the fifth best team in the country. They will lose at least two of their last four games—Connecticut, West Virginia, Illinois, and Pittsburgh.
No. 6 Boise State
If the Broncos think they deserve a spot in the BCS they better do a lot better than beating UC-Davis by 18 and Tulsa by seven. When the second toughest matchup on your schedule is Idaho, you better be decisive in your victories. Overrated until further notice.
No. 7 Iowa
I’m waiting. Lose that game to that inexplicably bad Big 10 team any week now, Hawkeyes. Seriously, you’re not good. I have a good feeling about this week, though.
No. 8 Miami and No. 9 LSU
No. 10 TCU
The only non-BCS team this year deserving of a Top 10 ranking. Wins at Virginia, Clemson, and this weekend in BYU would go a long way in proving the Horned Frogs mettle.
No. 11 Georgia Tech
Are the Yellow Jackets really better than Oregon? I rest my case.
No. 12 Oregon
Win on Halloween against USC and the Ducks are golden. Legitimate BCS hopes with a victory.
No. 13 Penn State
They play one ranked team this season—Ohio State. Hey Joe Pa, are you too old to realize your non-conference schedule is absolutely worthless?
It’s not worth going any further down than this.
