    Rutgers was around the top 30 this year. They quietly had a very nice year.

    They lost as a 29 point favorite. You can say they got screwed, but I wouldn't call it big time.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Our national champion didn't play in their conference championship.

    Re: Final Top 25 Polls

    SEC may had the best team in college football, but Big 12 has the deepest conference from top to bottom.

    I'm proud of our team for going 6-6 in this tough schedule. We may not be ranked, but we def played one of the toughest schedules of all time.

    Re: Final Top 25 Polls

    After Clemson getting embarassed in their bowl game, I would think some of the writers would have to cringe putting their name down as a top 25 team. That or they almost completely dicsount the bowl games as glorified exhibitions.

    They aren't by a dozen computer rankings.

    The people who still criticize the fact that 1/3 of the BCS rankings are computerized by now are morons, they're they only ones that make a bit of sense.

    Those Big Ten teams are generally 5-20 spots lower in every unbiased poll out there.

    Re: Final Top 25 Polls

    Does anybody really honestly believe that Michigan is a top 10 team? Really?

    Pathetic. And people wonder why we hate the B1G. Garbage.

    The Big XII had the highest final Sagarin ranking, the highest win percentage of a major conference in bowl games and the highest non-conference winning percentage. 6-6 in that is a good season.
