Sunday Morning Quarterback™ today, I decided that I would.
In case anyone is NCAA College Footbaw illiterate, I shall explain that the Bowl Championship Series doesn't publish a Final Poll after the Bowling. Their job is done before the silly season starts. In fact, the BCS ends immediately following the World Championship Game that is held every year in Atlanta.
So, we have to crank up the Cray 36,000 and cipher all this crap ourselves to show everyone how far SUPERIOR the SEC actually is.
It is an easy thing to place Auburn at NUMBER ONE. They went undefeated in the SEC. That should be an automatic NUMBER ONE ranking across all polls. This year is equally solid by having the Heisman Winner, Cameron Newton on the Plainsmen.
After the number one, though, things are not so solid. TCU played ZERO ranked teams. They won against a Big 10(11)(12) team in their bowl game. That does nothing for me toward ranking them up top. The fact that there were three first place votes in the APee, and one in the USA poll, kinda makes me believe that there are at least three people in college footbaw that are too dangerous to be allowed in public.
Then Oregon and Stanford. Again, Oregon played one ranked team and beat them and that was Stanford. Stanford played one ranked team and LOST. Plus, Oregon's strength on offense was their HUGE 335.9 yards per game rushing. In the game against The Barn, Oregon gained SEVENTY-FIVE yards. Plus, Auburn made two minor mistakes in that game that cost them two touchdowns. The score should have been at least 34-19 for The Barn.
Stanford lost to Oregon. Feh.
tOSU lost to Wisconsin that lost to TCU who played NO ONE.
Then we have Boomer Sooner. True, they lost two games, but the two they lost were to ranked teams that lost in the Big 12 circle, too. I just do not discount those losses because they ultimately matter and Boomer went on to beat another ranked team in the Big 12 Championship Game.
So let's look at this thing like people that understand mathematics, mmmmkay?
Auburn is number one with no doubt, even though there are morons that voted instead for TCU.
Oklahoma is number two because of SOS and their W-L in the only other legitimate conference DIVISION, the Big 12 SOUTH.
Then LSU, Alabama, Arkansas round out the top five.
Oregon is SIXTH in the REAL MATHEMATICALLY DONE Poll.
Oh, and in case you are color blind and cannot understand the chart, the SEC finished the year with SIX ranked teams, after 84% of the conference went bowling. The Big 12 comes in second with five ranked teams, ACC is third with four, Big 10(11)(12), which is going to change to the Big (?) this fall, is fourth with three, then the PAC-10 and the WAC (WTF?) tie with two, and then all the other loser conferences fall in line.
Oh, did I mention that since the start of the BCS, there have been thirteen BCS Championship Games? Of these 13 games, an SEC team has been to seven of them. Five different teams have represented the SEC. The SEC is 7-0 in the BCSCG and has won the last five.
The SEC is undefeated in the BCSCG and there is no other conference that even has a winning record in the same game. Weird, huh?
Now, is there ANY debate topic left to mention or did I sufficiently PROVE that the SEC is best conference in all of college footbaw?
By the way, The We Suck MSU Bulldogs finished the year at number 15 and prison raped Michigan in the Gata Bowl. What is up with that?
