This year could have clusterfuck at the end written all over it if LSU loses to Bama. Who would you vote number one if it plays out like this:
Bama beats LSU 10-7 in OT.
Okie State beats Stanford 49-14.
Bama would have won the "national championship." But finished 1-1 with LSU and a weak schedule.
LSU would have been 1-1 with Bama both OT games and played one hell of schedule.
Okie St would have beaten 3 Top 10 teams during the year.
And all would be 12-1.
interesting question. the winner of lsu bama is obviously the national champion. however, the AP poll is still seperate. my hope is that Ok St gets the nod in the AP in that scenario. I think we already have a cluster fuck. The rules set by the BCS said it had to be Alabama vs LSU one more time. but now you have a school, with an impressive record left out in the cold.
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.
