We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

It's not offensive...it's just utterly ludicrous. I don't think much of K-State, but they have one loss. Baylor has five. They're in the same conference. A nutless monkey could figure this out.

So you are saying K State is a better football team than Baylor?
Another personal insult - that's childish
USC poised to move to #1 next week after we beat Notre Dame.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
BS. UCLA or NC St....
You're both wrong...Auburn beats Bama & moves into the top five.
Lulz. Clearly you've never been on this board before.
Wow, you are this stupid.
So if SC beats ND then SC should be ranked higher then ND? Stupid thread.
Florida should definitely be higher than A&M and LSU. First, they only have 1 loss. Second, they beat both teams.
Its silly to hear A&M fans crying about this.
pstrjohn made it back. welcome. we missed you during this wonderful college football season.
but you were with us in spirit.
you have your feet planted firmly in mid air.
So baylor should be ranked ahead of k stAte? Dumb

If USC beats ND - they are a better team and in any tournament would send ND home.
My original theory is that the Human Polls are biased and corrupt and fans of teams that benefit from the bias would instantly spew venom at the simple thought that a much lower ranked team beating them would justify the higher ranked team dropping below them.
Fandom blinds common logic.
Ask yourself this question and clear your mind of Fandom Bias:
Taking college football out of the equation - if two teams play each other regardless of their records and team A beats team B - is team A better? Also, if you were ranking the teams in a scenario where an opinionated pre-season poll did not falsely set a standard o measurement and you had to rank the top 25 today - how would you rank it?
It is clear that ESPN and regional AP homers vote is biased to the contracts they have with conferences and personal fandom - which is why the BCS is a flawed system and until the NCAA gets to an 8 or 16 team playoff - all the confusion and venom will continue.
Maybe I am to black and white and think in absolutes.
Why are we talking about a tournament? The regular season isn't one-and-done in any sport. Didn't the Patriots beat the Giants twice the year they went undefeated but lost in the Super Bowl to... the Giants?
corrupt would be putting a 2 loss team ahead of a 1 loss team. despite the head to head. in both situations on your original post you are talking about ranking a 2 loss team in front of a 1 loss team.
They only beat them once but same logic applies. In fact i'm pretty sure it was the last regular season when they played, and the Pats beat the piss out of them.
Sounds good. We beat Georgia head to head. I'll take being ranked 3rd
genius mathematics of the green midget who's life ambition is to find a little 4 leaf flower should replace the BCS computer poll formula's.

a better question may be if USC (with its horrific defense & w/out their golden-child QB) beats ND should the Irish be in the Top Ten ?
were is Pitt ranked ?
Notre Dame will remain in the top-10
it's not a tournament kok stane.
This thread is still going? Lulz. I love it.
