a school, which lets be honest, had they lost at the beginning of the year, they would be in the national title game. a late loss kills a teams hopes.
to answer you question, it would really depend on how the games played out. if lsu vs bama was as sloppy and ugly as the first match...Ok St would get my vote for No. 1.
If it was a close game because both defenses stepped up and just shut down the offenses....then it would depend on how Stanford looked. Did Ok St shut them down or were they just sloppy.
either way its completely subjective and just further proves that the current system is broken worse than MMA scoring.
I dont really have a dog in this show. Im not a fan of any of the 3. What I am a fan of is a cluster fuck from hell that gets the ball rolling on the end of the BCS, and the formation of a couple of super conferences and a playoff system.
I mean, shit there is enough bowl games to make them playoff games and still let other schools play bowl games.
I am an Okie State fan and even though I feel we got screwed I would take a certain pride in knowing my team helped bring down the BCS.
I do not understand how they could all be against playoffs like they are. Do they see the money March Madness makes? Now imagine December Madness with a semi-final match up between LSU and USC that would be friggin huge. Make a 16 team tourny and have them follow the BCS (conference title be damned!). They could still have some bowls they just could not use the 16 teams that made it. If this system is in place here are just a few of the first round match-ups we would get to enjoy:
Boise St. v. Wisconsin
South Carolina v. Kansas St
Baylor v. Oregon (final score 85-80)
Michigan v. Stanford
Bama v. Clemson
Those would be some pretty fun first round match-ups and lead to an exciting weekend of football. Baylor would be a huge sleep because they would Oregon then the Stanford/Michigan winner both winnable games for a 12 seed. Bama v. Boise St in the second round and Okie St. v. Arkansas... WHY ISNT THIS HAPPENING?!?!?!
