    Re: Interesting article about the BCS computers

    The article does a decent job of arguing why the Big XII may be overrated, but doesn't really give good justification why the SEC should be rated higher.

    The only thing that it really proves is why LSU should currently be rated #1.

    I say who cares. This is why computers are only 1/3 of the formula.

    Re: Interesting article about the BCS computers

    Only partway through, but had to comment about computer using yardage instead of points. I knew the margin of victory had been dropped because teams could skew the results by running up the score.

    But yardage?

    Among other things, couldn't you pile up meaningless yardage to mess up the numbers, too?
