    Re: Preseason Coaches Poll

    I don't see how the Big XII fails to have a top ten team by the end of the season unless Texas/Oklahoma/OSU all go 1-1 against each other and no other team rises up. That TCU-LSU game will be huge for overall rankings in the conference.

    Re: Preseason Coaches Poll

    Bama plays a whopping two ranked teams all season (LSU and A&M). There is little chance they have more than one loss so will be a BCS team for sure.

    Ohio State has to play a few more ranked teams but nobody that is elite.

    Louisville doesn't play anybody at all.

    So does an undefeated Louisville get into the title game if Alabama or Ohio State get one loss early in the season?

    I don't know about all of you, but I sure cant wait to see Alabama man handle Ohio State in the National Championship game. Just look at OSUs schedule, it is complete trash. Iowa State could probably go 8-4 with that schedule. I cannot wait for the playoff to get here.

    After thinking on it a bit I think an undefeated Oregon/Stanford would jump an undefeated Ohio State in the last set of polls.

    I agree but as we have seen the last few years they always seem to lose one game.

    How do you figure? If OSU is already ranked higher and comes out of the B1G title game with a win over a highly-ranked or even moderately-ranked Michigan or Nebraska, I don't see how they'd get jumped. Unless either Oregon or Stanford is #3 behind them and beats a #4 ranked UCLA or something in their title game, maybe. That's what's so f*cked up with preseason polls. If you're ranked lower going into the season, you can do everything possible to get the the title game, and if that team ahead of you also goes undefeated, odds are you're out. Playoff can't get here fast enough. It's not perfect, but much easier to justify a one-loss #5 team in the country not getting a title shot than an undefeated #3 team.
