I am frequently critical of UL and WVa, as the only currently ranked teams they have played hitherto are each other.
BUT, as I look at the human polls, it is possible that the only team we will have beaten that will be ranked at season's end is OU. In other words, there is a legitimate chance that Nebraska, Missouri (even assuming we play them in the championship game), and A&M all finish the regular season out of the rankings.
Accordingly, two questions:
- even if we win out, will our SoS allow us to play for the MNC?
- BCS methodology aside, even if we win out do we deserve the MNC shot above a one loss team from the Pac 10, Big 10, or SEC?
