Analysis of Undefeateds


An interesting look by Huckleberry on the chances of the remaining undefeated teams to remain so. I like Boise State and I know they're good, but this again shows how easy it is for them to go undefeated in their awful schedule. Even average teams on a weekly basis can be dangerous and significantly decrease one's chances of going through the season unscathed.

BCS Computer Accuracy


I did a study of just how effective the BCS computers were based on this year's bowl season. Draw your own conclusions.

Va Tech ahead of Horns in Mock BCS


Yet another reason for Texas to take care of business on Saturday.

It's official. OU is the bigger BCS bust


Who's the bigger BCS bust, Oklahoma or Ohio State?

Texas Congressman Proposes Bill to End BCS


It's a start. Here's hoping this bill gets some bi-partisan support. If ever there was a way for politicians to earn the admiration of their constituency, it's signing on to support a bill like this.

It's Florida & Oklahoma, according to Scout & Fox


Fox is about to announce the official results but Scout.com has Florida and Oklahoma headed to Miami. (Scout had it right the last couple of weeks and is owned by Fox.) If this is right, Texas ended up with a .05 computer advantage (.94 to .89) but was a distant third in both the USA Today and Harris polls. Glendale here we come. Rubber match with the Buckeyes. No surprises: National Championship: Oklahoma vs. Florida Jan. 8 Fiesta: Texas vs. Ohio State Jan. 5 Sugar: Alabama vs. Utah Jan. 2 Orange: Cincinnati vs. Virginia Tech Jan. 1 Rose: Penn State vs. USC Jan. 1

USA Today Coaches Poll: Florida and OU essentially tied for #1


This is horrible news for Texas. The Longhorns are behind Florida by 73 votes. Even with a .04 advantage in the computers, which is about as much as we could hope for, Texas would need to be ahead of Florida in the Harris poll. This isn't going to happen. Last week's Harris had Florida #2, Texas #3, and OU #4. It is not a stretch to predict Florida and OU taking the top spots this week. Fiesta Bowl bound.

OU by a single point in USA Today Coaches Poll


With the Sooners likely equaling, if not surpassing, the Longhorns in the computers, Texas must be ahead of OU in the Harris poll to have a shot at holding onto #2 in the BCS. Texas made up 41 points in the Coaches poll from last week to this week. This is a significant move.

Leach: Tech Should be the Highest Ranked 1 Loss Team- Lubbock Avalanche Journal


I am a big fan of Mike Leach, but he is dead wrong here. Leach believes that Texas Tech, victims of a 44 point drubbing on national TV last week should be the highest ranked 1 loss team (After Oklahoma who he ranked above Alabama in the coach's poll). "When asked if he thought Tech should remain above Texas, Florida, Southern Cal and Penn State, he said, "Throw them all in there. We should be the top-rated one-loss team.''"

Sagarin Computer Rating: Texas #3


Sagarin's already pulled the lever and... Texas will be #3 in his rankings that count for the BCS, ahead of Penn State. The new #1? The Red Raiders. Sagarin's Top 10: 1. Texas Tech 2. Alabama 3. Texas 4. Penn State 5. Utah 6. Oklahoma 7. Florida 8. Boise State 9. Georgia 10. Oklahoma State More on all this in the forthcoming New Stakes post.
