Ya but Clemson is an ACC team and the ACC is a total joke. Someone has to win that shitfest and having a BCS bowl team unranked, as every ACC team should be most years, would make the system look like more of a joke than it already does. At least they made a BCS bowl last year though and slightly delivered on the hype.. Sure they lost 70-33 to the #23 ranked team in the country from the Big Least, but they made it. When your conference is 2-13 in the BCS what can you expect lol.
Anyone else completely enjoying watching South Carolina teetering on the edge of blowing another game to a team they should destroy? Is there any team in the country that is as completely overrated year after year after year than SC under Spurrier?
in the past decade? how about your wolverines?
yeah...i went there...
Michigan hasn't even been in an AP preseason top 25 poll since 2007 outside of this year. I think we can all agree the correct answer is Oklahoma.
Grats South Carolina on a patented Head Ball Coach "We nearly blew the game to an inferior opponent but will still get rewarded in the polls based on my record from 16 years ago" win.
Well, wins rarely drop your ranking, so there's no point in expecting a winning team to lose points. Give em credit for playing a tough in-conference game their first week. Most teams play shit schools the first couple weeks.
Ya I'd agree with those. Notre Dame is such a joke lol. If Notre Dame wants to ever be relevant again they should join a freaking conference. But nah, lets roll around in NBCs giant money pile which NBC keeps throwing at them because so many people still give a crap about ND.
I don't think you give Vandy enough credit conscript that game went about how I thought it would go. Vandy's Defense is pretty good and they have a really good coach over there. Notre Dame is by far the most overrated team the last 15 years. IDK about Texas they are usually good and if they are not that great they don't get pushed into a NC game like Oklahoma does for some reason. With Nebraska I don't think they are as bad as Notre Dame or Michigan as far as putting them high on the list as soon as they win 5 games straight. When Michigan and Notre Dame are like 7-0 the AP turns on the '30 years ago' thinking cap on and boost them up even if they don't have any quality wins.
For Boise St. losing so many players from last year, a win on the road against MSU would be a huge statement for their program. Not a great game so far, but a W is a W and all the talk leading up to the game was about MSU going to the Rose Bowl and how BSU was out of their league, so a win would shock many people. I'm kind of hoping for an upset just to see what the pundits say about it.
Boise's defense is looking pretty good if they could handle the run a little better. Offense is obviously rough, but that was what we all expected.
