We all know by now that our lead in the computers is .06. I thought I'd break it out, poll by poll, to see what we're really working with. I'm sure PB and others have copious amounts of data and analysis en route, but here is a (hopefully) good primer on each of the polls and our lead/deficit. For my conclusion as to probable change in each poll, I'm assuming all favorites hold serve, which is the only way any of this matters anyway. If you haven't seen it yet, the BCS site has a nice lil PDF with all the computer rankings shown individually. Linky
OU (sucks) 9.888
Conclusion: OU (sucks) picks up at least one point here next week.
OU (sucks) 314.425
Conclusion: Probably stays as is, too much ground for OU to make up on Bama, and Tech is not passing us with Baylor.
OU (sucks) .786
Conclusion: A little hope here, as we have a substantial lead over OU (sucks), and are oh so close to Utah. I'm gonna (wistfully) say that we pick up a point here.
OU (sucks) 92.32
Conclusion: He's our buddy now, but I think he's going to hurt us next week. I think OU (sucks) picks up 2 points here, jumping Bama and Tech.
OU (sucks) .8939
Conclusion: Incomplete. Although, since the highest and lowest computer rankings are tossed, I think he may be tossed from both Texas and OU's standings, as he is this week.
UPDATE: OU should be far enough out that they can't pass Utah. As long as they don't move into third, Colley is still a throw out.
Is as lazy as Colley, and has not updated his site either. Here are his rankings, per the BCS site.
OU (sucks) 2.56
Conclusion: Incomplete. Hard to see any change here though. I'll say that this one stays as is.
UPDATE: No change will be occcuring here, and Massey would be thrown out for OU, as he gives them their sole number 1 ranking.
Add 'em up!
Thrown out, Texas: Colley (1st), Billingsley (3rd)
Thrown out, OU: Massey (1st), Colley (4th)
OU (sucks) nets a +.02 in the computers. If the polls hold as is (I know, I know) here is what you would get in the BCS...
OU (sucks): .9225
but, if we don't pick up one in Anderson & Hester, then we drop to
and OU (sucks) stays at .9225, and the land thieves are in KC. Basically, just root against anyone that Utah played. Game of inches indeed.
