Re: college football week 14:championships to be won

So who do we think the "other" At Large BCS teams will be (besides Alabama)? I'm assuming TCU makes it to the top 14 for a Non-BCS auto-bid. That leaves two out of 10 spots after counting the B1G, Big XII, SEC, ACC, Pac 12 and Big East champs, plus Alabama and TCU. Figure Stanford gets one. The other is to Michigan or K-State, I'd assume. Suppose they'd take Michigan because they'd probably travel better and get better ratings?

Bama lost by 3 points to the #1 team in the country. OSU lost to Iowa State. Regardless of where the game was, that loss was horrible. Wasn't OSU favored by multiple TDs?

Clemson has VT's number this year. Dominated both games on both sides of the ball. Looks like we're headed to the Chick-fil-A bowl against Auburn.

I looked back at the box score and OSU was up 24-7 in the 3rd quarter and then choked. Iowa State was 0-56-2 against opponents ranked #6 or higher heading into that game.

Running into the kicker penalty.

And that's the game, Wisconsin.

I fell asleep and just woke up. OK St pk 2nd half pays.

It's a brizz world. MSU loses out on the Rose Bowl because of a penalty and great acting job.

Re: college football week 14:championships to be won

The MSU player was pushed by a lineman. Does that not mean that he cannot be called for that?
And regardless, what a horrific way to lose. Kind if like the last meeting between them.

What a game.

Re: college football week 14:championships to be won

Best part is Wisky winning means a deflated Rose Bowl line. Those fans love betting the line down. Plus a better chance of getting Michigan into a game they don't belong in.

Re: college football week 14:championships to be won

that was a great fucking football game and I couldn't be more proud of how MSU took every punch and dished uppercuts right back all game long. But that was a HORRIBLE way to end it. I'm just speechless. Classic Wisconsin though - so incredibly appropriate that they won by flopping

Great game though, unlike so many, many other conference championship games.

The refs handed MSU a win in the first game and Wisconsin in the second. The universe balances these things out.

Re: college football week 14:championships to be won

how the fuck did the refs hand MSU a win in October? By correctly awarding a touchdown when the player got the ball into the endzone?

True, but are teams evaluated one one game only? It's hard to make sense of who beat who. Oklahoma crushed Kansas State, where as OSU barely scraped by. So you'd think Oklahoma would stomp OSU. Instead it went the other way around.

Here's how I see it. There's an argument to be made for both Alabama and OSU. In my heart, I believe Alabama is better. But the key word here is believe. I don't know. You don't know. No one knows. Alabama clearly had its shot.
OSU hasn't had a shot at LSU. Given the overall resumes of both teams, at least part of me is inclined to give it to the team that hasn't played LSU. Because while no one can know for sure, but in this scenario everyone has a shot on the field. That's at least as good as trying to guess who #2 should be.

Re: college football week 14:championships to be won

S.O.S. OSU 10th Bama 38th

OSU beat 5 teams with winning records
Bama beat 3

OSU 4 wins vs. BCS top 25
Bama 2 wins

Fact is this, BAMA had their shot at LSU and they blew it, someone else's turn to try and beat the clear #1 team in the nation. Also this same scenario presented itself years back when it was the SEC who whined/complained and got their way. They were upset about the possible rematch of OSU/Michigan who were 1/2 at the time and in that case it was actually Michigan who lost to OSU at OSU, yet Florida was at #3 and vaulted over Michigan at the time to then go ahead and face OSU.

Re: college football week 14:championships to be won

Imagine if they could have some type of tournament to let the teams sort it out on the field. Maybe call it playoff or something?

Teams that actually played in and won their conference championship game could be invited to participate.

The BCSGuru.com guy thinks Okie St. will be the #2 team.
