    This may be the first time in my life I’ve defended them, but LSU is “on the cusp”?

    The Tigers have beaten three teams currently in the AP top 25, and their only loss is to the number 2 ranked team (by one touchdown).

    On the other hand, your #10,Oklahoma State, has a victory over just one AP top 25 team (#23 Texas A&M) and a loss to #9 Nebraska.

    And as impressive as TCU’s victory over Utah was, that was their first game against a team in the current AP ranking.

    I agree with most of this ranking. I’m not sure what I’d do with LSU. They had an impressive home win against Alabama, but have been awful up to that point. Somehow they squeezed wins from the North Carolina and Tennessee games – neither of which they deserved to win.
    I’d flip-flop Boise State and Auburn because I think Auburn’s defense is mediocre at best.
    I’d also swap Nebraska and Wisconsin. Nebraska were extremely lucky against Iowa State (who Utah absolutely smoked).

    But I do agree that TCU should be number 1. Their offense is very good, and their defense is scary. I think they would get played close by Oregon and Boise State, but no one else.

    Floridian- LSU confuses me they have a great score blind resume (on a computer poll they should be insanely high) but as a person who actually watched their games, I’m not that convinced they’re significantly better than Florida (then again I think Florida’s a one loss team in the top 10- if they weren’t (due to freak injuries to both their Groza-canidate starter and their backup) splitting kicking duties between their second walk-on and their punter- both the LSU and MSU games were lost due to multiple kicks missed within the redzone. Of course if I’m going to go there I guess I have to humor the hypothetical- what if Urban Meyer ran his team like Chip Kelly runs Oregon- that is to say what if Meyer only sat Rainey for 1 game or maybe even a half (given the severity of Rainey’s offense vis a vis James’s) in that case I think Florida would be 7-1 with a chance of having beaten Bama.

    Finally, can I just point out how freaking ridiculous it would be if Auburn, already the only AQ team to run the table and not win the title, does it for a second time especially if it happens in favor of an AQ team, heck Boise has an argument too– I mean getting left out of the game in favor of two teams they’ve beaten during their nearly 30 game winning streak.

    Also the whole- “SEC unbeaten in BCS title games- so the man had to stop us because the rest of the country couldn’t do it on the field” schpiel would become inescapable- you think the “SEC,SEC” chants are bad now watch what happens if this occurs.
