Dropped Out: Pittsburgh (#16), Boston College (#17), South Florida (#19), Kansas (#22).
Now what? Ohio State has scored __ offensive touchdowns and you could make an argument that they are the worst 8-2 in the country and not deserving of a top __ ranking. I am probably overreacting, but last time I checked, this offense had four O-linemen returning to block for the Heisman favorite, and the nation’s #1 recruit behind center. Do you know what that nets? Exactly 281 yards against a defense that was gashed by a bad Michigan team. Spare me the look ahead garbage, too. After 9 straight losses, they wanted to beat so badly they could taste it. And the Buckeyes managed ONE trips inside the redzone and 6 points. Ick.
The OSU offense is horrible. Where are the wide receivers? Where is the dominant running game? Does anyone really believe this is the best two-loss team in America? Better than Missouri or LSU. No way. Hello, Breakfast Bowl.
With a bullet: Texas is the #1 team…easily. If you think anyone else deserves to be top-ranked you need to get your head examined. They have defeated the #1, #1, and #6 teams in the country, in-a-row. If you thought Ohio State’s two victories against #2 teams was impressive in 2006 was a full house, with a victory against Texas Tech this weekend, the Longhorns will have four-of-a-kind.
If I had any balls, I would vote the Gators #2. I recently wrote that I thought the BCSCG would e USC v. Florida, but I am starting to doubt half of that prognostication. Would I bet on Florida in any single game right now? Yep.
