BCS Standings 2011: Virginia Tech and 3 Overrated BCS Teams
We are all excited that the 2011 BCS Rankings have finally been released.
At the same time, we are all upset with at least something with the rankings. That's always the case with the BCS.
It's an imperfect system, and people don't hesitate to voice their complaints on the matter.
This team is underrated. This team is overrated.
It goes on and on.
We all have complaints. Here are some that I see.
Here are three overrated teams in the release of the BCS standings.
No. 12 Virginia Tech Hokies
Virginia Tech is one of those teams that never seems to impress me.
They are wildly inconsistent and play down to the level of their competition.
They may be 6-1, but their wins against Miami and East Carolina were two of the ugliest wins I've ever seen.
Their one difficult opponent, Clemson, absolutely destroyed them. Maryland put up a better fight against the undefeated Tigers.
Virginia Tech deserves to be ranked, but they certainly don't deserve a ranking as generous as 12th.
No. 15 West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia's most impressive win came a week ago against Connecticut, where they won 43-16.
The Mountaineers have one of the least impressive schedules in the nation. Their only tough game thus far, was when they were crushed by LSU.
How a team like West Virginia is ranked ahead of teams like Michigan State and Auburn, who have beaten ranked opponents, just doesn't make any sense to me.
No. 23 Texas Longhorns
I hate to say it, because I have been rooting for the Longhorns, but they don't deserve a spot in the BCS Rankings.
This is a team that has beaten Iowa State, Rice, UCLA and BYU.
They have lost to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
There are many unranked teams that have been much more impressive than Texas.
Notre Dame, Baylor, Arizona State and Georgia are just a few who could easily make an argument for taking the Longhorns spot.
It's probably not a big deal. In a few weeks Texas won't be there any longer.
