    First BCS rankings of the year

    Surprised at FSU over Oregon. Would be interesting to see if that would hold if they both go 13-0.

    Baylor will have some trouble getting into the top 2 even if they go undefeated. SEC, B1G, ACC, Pac-12 all have undefeated teams ranked higher and at least 3 of those conferences will need to lose.

    FSU might be the real deal, Nov 7th against Miami is going to be a huge game.

    Re: First BCS Rankings Released

    more ACC teams in the top 10 than SEC. Wonder when the last time that happened?

    This looks like it would be a great season to start the playoff. Too bad we still have to wait another year.

    Re: First BCS Rankings Released

    Assuming Baylor stays unbeaten, they will move up a few spots from process of elimination.
    Oregon and Stanford both play each other.
    Miami and Florida St both play each other.
    Alabama and Missouri could play each other in the SEC championship.
    Assuming no huge upsets, I could see the final BCS standings looking something like this:
    1. Alabama
    2. Oregon
    3. Florida St
    4. Ohio St.
    5. Baylor

    I could see Baylor jumping Ohio St. too, since Baylor has more chances at beating better teams than OSU. OSU's remaining schedule is crap, other than Michigan.
    Baylor could still beat Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and Okie St.

    Hate that the computers dont include margin of victory factored in somehow. Thats a huge difference for baylor.

    If Florida St. wins out, they also really deserve a shot. Thus why the BCS sucks.

    I would rather see Oregon vs FSU in the championship than Bama vs ???
    But, won't happen if Bama wins out.
    Why can't the playoff start this year?

    A lot of good teams this year. OSU shouldn't be top 6 IMO. Stanford either

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Hey, remember last year when the first BCS rankings came out and ISU was actually ranked???
    Yeah, that was a pleasant surprise...
