BCS Championship Game: Who Deserves a Berth?
Icon Sports MediaI'm confused:

How can Missouri be ranked No. 1 in the BCS when they really haven't beaten anyone?

As a matter of fact, four of the top five BCS teams haven't really beaten anyone. Georgia is the exception.

In looking closely at the BCS rankings, it seems to me that Hawaii is getting screwed. Don't get me wrong, the Warriors haven't beaten anybody but Boise State—but they can't completely control their own schedule.

In any event, as I see it, the Bulldogs should be ranked No. 1 given their schedule and conference.  Mark Richt's squad has beaten four ranked teams—Alabama, Florida, Auburn, and Kentucky.

Granted, Georgia did lose to South Carolina and Tennessee—but those two teams aren't bad.

I hate to say it, but I think the BCS Championship game should be Ohio State and Georgia or LSU. Call me crazy—but I think the schedules and records back me up.

In fairness, Missouri has gone 3-1 against ranked teams, beating Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas Tech.

But Nebraska and Kansas were both overrated, and Texas Tech never had a chance.

But then again maybe I'm wrong. Let me know what you all think.
