[quote]I didn't draft the BCS rules.[/quote]
There are no official "BCS rules". Only what the voters and media have created. For example, Ohio State is ranked about Auburn because we're all used to ranking teams solely based on records and they have 1 less loss. There is no BCS rule saying they m...

Your whole argument is based on stats. Stats don't mean shite if you don't win.
Also, if you deny that the name and prestige of Bama did not influence the voters to vote for them at all, you're delusional. I'm sorry....

When are people going to realize that it's about accomplishments, not just who is the best on paper.
I don't care if you're as good as the Denver Broncos, if you can't win your conference you shouldn't be in the national championship game. It just doesn't make any sense, at all. This is not the N...

I hate this argument. Bama fans love to use it to justify their 2011 NC that they didn't deserve, and surely will use it again this year should OSU and FSU fall (unlikely but it could happen). They will say "we barely lost to a top 5 team on the road blah blah blah..."
A loss is a loss. A failure...
| More Sports Board|| re: Is Russell Wilson the most over-rated QB currently in the NFL? - benhamin5555 on 12/4/13 at 1:49 pm|
I don't know why people keep acting as if Wilson is the same QB as Kaepernick, Newton, and RGIII. He isn't. Wilson's passing ability is better than those 3 combined. Which is why I think Wilson will be elite and the other 3 will have very average careers....

Wilson is already above Luck and Ryan IMO. Ryan has hit his peak, he'll never be elite. Wilson has tons of room to improve still, I think he's the real deal....

I know LSU fans use the term jokingly but what formerly elite programs are really experiencing a decline?

2007 LSU is often labeled as one of the worst BCS title winning teams. I'm not really sure why. I'll admit we were lucky to get into the national title game with 2 losses, but that was also the result of one of the craziest CFB seasons in recent memory.
People don't seem to remember that the team...
