Re: Great Day for College Football
One of the biggest jokes of the rankings this year was the South Florida #2 ranking. I'm not recalling any more embarrassing bandwagon jumping, and some folks were clamoring that they "deserved" to be #1. The rankings really need to move past looking at the undefeated and putting them up by default. It is certainly arguable that LSU is still the best team, all told, even though they tripped up against UK, although 'Bama really should have won that game last night, which makes their #2 more dubious than moving Oregon up based on performance. But then, I think Arizona State really was a pretender. An OU vs. OSU matchup would certainly be interesting.
As for the SEC power, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of D played in that conference from week to week.
