What if....? BCS chaos ..likely

Posted on: November 24, 2011 6:07 pm


If Arkansas beats LSU, and Georgia beats Arkansas, I don't believe the voters will allow an Alabama-LSU rematch. How fair would it be for LSU to have to beat Alabama twice JUST TO WIN THE TITLE. LSU would win the 1st and lose the 2nd yet Alabama would get the title? Remember, the coaches poll must declare the THE WINNER OF THE TITLE GAME THE CHAMPION. However, the AP poll does not have to crown the winner of that game the champion. Hence, a split Championship is a high possibility. You gotta love the crazy things that can happen on any give Saturday. The computer rankings is footballs version of the RPI. It is who you defeat and who your opponents defeat, not necessarily who you lose too. That is why you have 8 Big 12 teams vs 5 for the SEC ranked in the Top 20 Sagarin ratings (BCS rankings-uses the ELO Chess). A 9th team from The Big 12, Texas Tech, has lost every game since the OU win, yet they are still ranked #30. All of this should make an exciting finish to "The Greatness that is College Football." For the record, I do like Arkansas to beat LSU tomorrow, Notre Dame to beat Stanford, Tulsa to beat Houston, Alabama over Auburn, and Oklahoma to beat the OSU cowboys next weekend.
