    The season isn't over yet and we've already got a huge debate going. Don't think anyone doubts Bama being #1 since they are unbeaten. Big 12 South 3-way tie. Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, all have beat up each other. Texas beat Oklahoma in a close game. Tech beat Texas in a close game. Oklahoma destroyed Tech. So going solely on head to head, each team has a argument for going to the Big 12 title game(Which will be decided by the higher BCS ranking.) I'm biased because I'm from Oklahoma and obviously an OU fan. But the Sooners have been hot lately. Texas wants to argue about the head to head, but they surely don't mention that Texas Tech game. Oklahoma is a much better team than they were in October. Tech has looked great all year except for the last 2 weeks, and that really really hurts them. BCS and rankings are how good are you now, so falling down late really hurts you. So... what say you? Assuming Bama is #1, who is #2?

    TECH is slippping and OU are hott right now. I'm a Longhorn fan but feel OU is playing great ball. I think OU or Texas can beat Alabama though.

    Once the Gators whip the Tide next week, this thread will no longer matter.

    +1, The Gators are playing the best football in the country right now, and being a Vol fan, that pains me to say.

    ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!

    I have some Longhorn crocs, but nobody wants to see those, lol. The Horns should be, they should at least be in the Big 12 Championship. If you just look at the margin of defeats between UT, TT, and OU it's pretty easy: UT beat OU by what, 10? TT was demolished by OU so they're out of the question, and TT barely beat UT.

    I also feel that UT offers the biggest challenge to Bama.

    Colt for Heisman!

    lol... if this thread has shown me anything... it's that personal biased beats all. :D

    We need a playoff so bad!



    I also want to add that I think Texas is getting the shaft hardcore. Not that I feel they deserve it over OU because I don't. But I still feel they are getting screwed. If the roles were reversed I'd feel the same way. It sucks... but OU has been F'd up the BH by the BCS before, so I know how it feels and can sympathize.

    I feel a bet comin' on for the Rose Bowl! Go Lions!


    Personally, I think OU is #2 because of how they ended the season, and I can't get how badly they beat TT out of my mind.

    Bunch of great teams up there, Tide, Texas, OU, TT, and Florida.

    The Big 12 made a huge mistake setting up the conference in two (North and South) divisions. Oklahoma and Texas should be playing for the conference championship... not OU and MU.

    This year will give even better credence to the need for some sort of playoff system in collegiate football. Florida, Florida State, USC, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama... there are a number of great teams that should be vieing for the national championship. Instead, some really good teams will be relegated to second class bowl games... and not even get consideration as #1.

    I guess the playoff discussion has made it's way in here...

    I don't understand how there's not one yet, not just because every other sport has it, but because NOBODY likes the BCS. Seriously, have you ever met someone that thinks it's better than a playoff? I know I haven't.

    I think a fair compromise for the playoff is to allow the BCS to pick the 8 teams (just the way it ranks the top 8 now) and then put them in a playoff, 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7 and so on. Teams would likely still get shafted, but...oh well =] The 12th regular season game could be taken away to help this not be too much for the student athletes.

    All I hear on sports radio is about how bad the BCS is, but it seems like it's never going to change =[

    The BCS was an improvement over the previous system which was basically a lack of a system. Certain conferences went to certain bowls every year and the national championship was more confusing than it is now as #1 and #2 almost never played each other at the end of the year.

    The BCS WAS an improvement, but it has not gone far enough. A playoff system is the only way they will ever get a consensus National Champion.
