Baylor beat ISU, so things are falling in our favor.
You're right, UT is 2-4, not 3-3
OU: UT (2-0), ISU (1-1), KSU (1-1) = 4-2
UT: OU (0-2), ISU (1-1), KSU (1-1) = 2-4
ISU: OU (1-1), UT (1-1), KSU (1-1) = 3-3
KSU: OU (1-1), UT (1-1), ISU (1-1) =...
If the Big 12 ended today, we'd have the #2 seed in the Big 12 tournament.
First tiebreaker among multiple teams is "Results of collective head-to-head competition during the regular season among...
Ah, so close
9 seed v. Wichita State in ESPN
7 seed v. Wichita State in USA Today...
WTF? It said updated Jan 14 earlier in the morning and has us a 7 seed.
I guess he still has to make tweaks or something.
Up to a 7 seed after the win over the pokes.
Anything is better than the last couple years of Jeff Capel...
Willie Warren -.-''
Meh. But our RPI has constantly been in the top-25. So with the S-Curve, absolutely.
10th seed in Sports lllustrated's projectons
Not too shabby.
Idk about that...
Omg, Sunday's episode was so draggy until the end. I can't tell if Dana is awesome or annoying. She's had moments of both throughout the season.
But Carrie gets abducted next week? Or goes...
Not necessarily. The gap between 16 and 17 is GIGANTIC. And even if UCLA loses and Kent wins, they doesn't guarantee they'll move up, given that UCLA is playing a much better team.
NIU is a better team than Kent State. Fairly confident NIU will win.
Oops. Edit: Stewart Mandel agrees.
Go NIU or UCLA!
The BCS doesn't control the Harris voters, Coaches' votes, or the computers... So...
Yea, in Sagarin's computer, Kent, NIU, and Boise are all 40+.
The bigger Bullshit is Boise State being ranked 15th for the coaches poll. They have beaten NOBODY and lost to a TERRIBLE Michigan State team and an average SDSU team. That 113th strength of schedule...
Yea, but a lot of teams ahead of them will fall AND Kent/NIU play each other so that's another ":top-25:" win to their resume late.
The Big East gets a bid regardless. They could be an absolute crap team and get in. And the non-AQ will outrank them and take the other at-large bid.
Big East champ gets an at-large bid. It'll either be Rutgers or Louisville. I'm assuming.
Hello. This is what it will look like:
BCS Championship - Notre Dame v Alabama
Orange Bowl - Florida State v Rutgers
Fiesta Bowl - Kansas State v Oregon
Rose Bowl - Nebraska v Stanford
Huh? If the non-AQ finishes in the top-16 and ahead of the Big Least champ (which they will), they will take the last at-large.
Sagarin's computer ratings have us 9th, NIU (40th), Boise (42nd), and Kent State (49th).
All their strengths of schedules are 113th or worse!
Yea, but the computers do not like Boise at all. We have to worry more about the MAC champ.
They wrote the rules and signed the contracts. Will probably be the least watched BCS bowl in history if it happens.
You're preaching to the choir. Kent State got DESTROYED by a horrible Kentucky team. Northern Illinois lost to a non-bowl eligible Iowa team. And Boise State has beaten nobody and lost to a horrible...
The computers don't like Boise, but they do like the MAC teams enough. BCS Guru projects tomorrow will be 17. Boise 18. Kent 19. NIU
So the winner of the Kent/NIU game only has a chance to go up...
You seem not to know how the BCS works. The big east's ineptitude screwed us over. If Boise or the MAC team finishes in the top-16 and ahead of the big least champion, then they get the automatic bid...
No. Even if we beat TCU, the chances of a BCS bowl berth are very slim.
That would be so awesome.
Yea. So did Ohio State's beating Michigan and ****ing Texas's loss to TCU.
It's literally gonna come down to one position spot in the BCS rankings.
They would basically have to do the opposite of what they did today... in Palo Alto. Long shot, but go UCLA indeed.
Yea, all the OU fans I'm talking to are just realizing this now... We would need Texas to win or UCLA to win or have Louisville or Rutgers just absolutely blow the other one out. Imagine Kent State...
Not sure if this is accurate. A UCLA upset would lock both Stanford and UCLA in the top-16 and lock out Boise and the MAC champ (if BCS Guru's projections are right).
1. Notre Dame
7. Kansas State
That will do it. It doesn't seem unlikely at all that the Big East champ will be ranked behind them, given that the MAC has given it to the Big Least this year.
Hopefully the Big East Champ finishes in the Top-16. That would lock Boise and the MAC champ out.
Well, the MAC champ is gonna jump Boise because the computers don't like Boise (as they shouldn't). And yea, there is a very good chance. Especially since UCLA will lose again to Stanford.
This is correct (according to Brad Edwards).
Fair point. But wouldn't it be nice to get revenge on Oregon for that 2006 debacle?
Need to really cheer for Texas to beat K-State. Thanks to the awfulness of the Big East, Boise State and/or Kent State/Northern Illinois have a real chance to finish in the top-16 and steal OU's...
