I still maintain we pass OU after today.

How can you be so sure that it hurts us. Clemson takes the AQ spot for the ACC. Virginia Tech has the same amount of losses as us and has played a dramatically weaker schedule. They've played one team that's currently in the BCS rankings and that team has beaten them by 20+ points, twice. Meanwhile, we have a 4 touchdown win against the team that was ahead of Clemson in the BCS heading into this week.
OU will drop below us. UGa will. VT probably won't (will be close). I have no idea what the voters think of houston... they probably should be ranked lower than us because they are not a very good team, but thats not always they way things work.
Hey folks, been out for dinner for a couple hours - 'd I miss anything?
Yeah: Cain is suspending his campaign.
Dantonio just went puntasausus. Sparty's gonna lose.
Dantonio coaching a helluva game
Does a win over VaTech hurt us?
I don't think so. Oklahoma is probably creating extra room in the top 14.
Over Michigan, if Michigan is available? Zero chance.
But Baylor could take a spot. Hopefully VaTech would drop below us. We jump OU, Houston, GA, and Wiscy/MSU. We get jumped by Baylor and Clemson. That would give us the 2 spot bump we need just barely. Too much to chance.
I don't think so. I think Houston, Oklahoma, Georgia, and the loser of MSU/Wisky all fall behind us this week, putting us up to 12th unless anybody jumps us.
I think so too. I was just pointing out that if we jump those 4 teams that we have wiggle room for 2 teams to jump us, which it appears only Baylor and Clemson have a chance at doing.
But really, the only way that the loser of the BIG championship game does NOT fall behind us is if the final score is close, right?
Yeah those four teams should definitely fall below us and Baylor and Clemson will go up. My concern though is that TCU also won big. Any thoughts on how much they will climb, if at all?
TCU has an extra loss and all of their losses were blowouts.
And since I don't want to reply to 2 seperate posts, I think we'll jump the loser of the B1G champ. game. Since Georgia lost, we can assume the rankings right now are basically:
A loss for Wisconsin definitely drops them below us, but MSU is questionable since they beat us. I think in that case it does depend on how the game is decided. Our resume and brand is better than both of those teams' though. We beat the 2 teams that MSU lost to, and Wisconsin's OOC was a joke.
The VT loss actually hurts UM's BCS chances. VT will stay ahead of UM, and it gives Clemson a small chance of passing UM.
As of this moment, I think Michigan passed Houston and Georgia, but Baylor passed Michigan. Michigan needs to pass the loser of MSU/UW or Oklahoma to get a BCS game.
VT falls behind Michigan. Same number of losses with their last defeat a blowout. Clemson will get the automatic bid.
I doubt VT is falling over 10 spots for losing to a ranked team.
The fox robot graphic is so dumb
Can you believe they sell action figures of those?
Fuck you Wisconsin.
Why vertical when you only need five?
Why does Fox keep playing the NFL theme music? I keep expecting to see Terry Bradshaw.
Last year Fox started using that theme for all of their sports braodcasts (baseball, football, nascar, etc)
impossible to not drink Dr. Pepper tonight
Wisky's gunners are a bummer tackling in space. Waiting for the runner to come to them.
Even if Va Tech stays in the top14 I doubt they'd get an at large bid since they're getting stomped by clemson for the second time.
I'm tired of Kirk Cousins and his hyper-accurate passing. A college QB should not get away with as many throws into coverage as he does.
I'm tired of Wisconsin not covering anybody
Wisconsin has the most docile secondary in the top-25. You could tell them the play before hand and they still wouldn't make the play.
Please explain to me why a 3 loss Baylor team jumps a 2 loss Michigan team?
I'm not convinced of this either. I mean, Texas is 7-5. Wooooo.
The coaches already don't have Texas ranked, and the Harris poll has 'em 25th. They ain't gonna be that impressed. The computers might, but they have 1 out of 3 votes.
It has to do with the computer polls. Baylor probably wont pass UM in the human polls, but Baylor is already very strong in the computer polls, and will become even stronger after tonight. When the BCS human and computer polls are computed, Baylor may have a higher overall score than UM.
Because for some reason, the computers really really like the Big 12. If it were only human polls, I don't think they would jump us.
Is that not a pick?
For the love of God how do you not double cover Cunningham?
has absolutely no idea what's going on. Very impressive offensive gameplan by Sparty. I also believe they suck
The Oklahoma Death March continues... 44-3.
I'm tired of hearing the announcers scream about everything.
Go to bed if ur so tired
Especially just screaming the same name over and over.
That delivery was a mix between a shotput and a frisbee throw... and it still went for a touchdown.
Okie St. taking their foot off the gas and still cruising. Up by 41 and the defense has been dominating. Really weakens the SEC argument that Okie St. can't defend anyone. And they have a more impressive resume than Alabama. This would be their 5th win over ranked teams. Bama has 2.
Everyone said if Ok state crushed OU then they may still have a shot. If they put Alabama in the game over OK state that is just ridiculous.
