    If Curry had come back Couch was going to transfer,probably to UT. That was the rumor anyway.

    Actually, if I had a vote, I vote LSU #1 still. And I'm a big Buckeye fan.

    Losing in 3 OTs to UK at Lexington is no sin after beating South Carolina, Florida, and Virginia Tech. I think they are the best team in the country and will end up in the BCS title game.

    If OSU wins out (a mighty big if), then they'd deserve to be in it as well.

    I heard Couch on an interview with a Tenn station the other day saying how close he was to going to Tenn. He also said he thought of transferring when Mumme came. Said Newton told him "tim, before you decide,just talk to Hal"
    Couch said he went in and Mumme said " First let's get 2 things straight....1-we are gonna throw 50 passes a game and 2- you are my starting quarterback"
    Tim said he got up and said "that's enough for me !"
    I was just paraphrasing but thats mostly how it went.
    As far as the thread, Ohio State probably by default. I am interested in seeing how SF does at Rutgers this week.

    What about South Florida? If they win out, do they deserve to be in as well?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    In all fairness to Billy Curry, he favored the experience of Billy Jack Haskins over the potential talent of Tim Couch primarily because Haskins was better suited to run the option-based offense that was being used by his offensive coordinator at the time.

    An offensive coordinator, by the way, who was so offensive--that I will not even refer to him by name. This guy made Mike Archer look like a genius.

    No easy task.

    I don't see why not. They play in a BCS conference, and the win against Auburn is as good a non-conference win as there is.

    Don't forget their dismantling of West Virginia who, at the time, was ranked # 3.

    Absolutely they do.

    Which is why the BCS is such a farce.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Well, yeah. Along with BC. And OSU.

    A BC-South Florida BCS championship is right up there with a Rockies-Indians World Series.

    Hmmmm... somethings not right here.

    A lot of game to be played, but Rutgers giving S. Florida a game. Rutgers up 20-17 w/ 6:00 left in the 3rd quarter and has 1st-and-10 at the S. Florida 22 yard line.

    WOW... Rutgers w/ a TD on a fake FG! A perfect throw by the holder to a well covered receiver. 27-17 game.

    You can forget about South Florida playing in the BCS championship. I really think there will be no undefeated teams this season and there will be more controversy then ever about who should be in the title game.
