BCS BS

Wait, so Alabama loses to #9 Texas A&M and is now #2. Oregon loses to #8 Stanford by a field goal in OT and they fall to ..... #5??? This would be the same Stanford that played #1 Notre Dame and only lost that one in OT.

WTF?

3 You want BCS BS explain this. In 2004 undefeated Aburn was left out of the BCS title game in favor of USC and Oklahoma. At the time the SEC threatened to quit the BCS.

Since 2004 the only season where an SEC did not compete in the championship game was 2005 where the best team in the conference was 2 loss Georgia.

Now with one game and a championship game left on the schedule, who are 2 and 3 in the coaches and writers polls? SEC teams. Both of which will likely be in their conferences championship game. This, in essence makes the SEC championship game a national title play in game and a seventh consecutive trip to the big game for the conference.

8 You're not telling the whole story.

#1 Bama lost to #15 Texas A&M (week 11) and fell to #4 (week 12).

#2 Oregon lost to #13 Stanford (week 12) and feel to #5 (week 13).

Makes sense to me.

9 K-State also suffered their first loss but they lost to Baylor which was an unranked team that now has a 5-5 record.
If I remember correctly the BCS takes into account of the teams they play and also the teams that those teams play. So it goes back two layers. So you not only have to win, you have to hope your opponents and their opponents have a decently strong schedule.
When AM beat Alabama, AM had two defeats, however those loses were to Florida (ranked in the top 10) and LSU (also ranked in the top 10).
So strength of schedule is part of the formula. But then again all this BS would be cleared up with a simple playoff system and get rid of the rankings all together.

12 All I'm going to say is "It's Bama. What do you expect?"

I've got a particularly crude joke ready, but in the interest of civility I'll keep it to myself.
