Default Forget the BCS: AP Controversy

Auburn ties Oklahoma for second place in AP poll

College football get more and more intresting every week. I'd give Auburn #2 since they have beaten better oppenents more convincingly, but this is a Texas fan talking...

Where's the controversy in Auburn moving into a tie with OU? In reality, there should be at least a 3-way tie for first between USC, OU and Auburn.

It's a shame that the only reason Auburn could be on the outside looking in is because of the pre-season polls. Auburn started as low as 18th in the coaches poll and have moved up.

Now had they started off even with USC or OU, have they played so poorly in any particular week this year to warrant moving below them? I don't think they have. So they shouldn't be below them now.

The Tigers could end up being a perfect example to why they should do away with pre-season polls. 'Course, they should do away with all the polls and get on with a playoff system but I can ony tackle one problem at a time.

If you did not have a poll, then how would you pick the teams in the bracket?

They shouldn't come out with the first poll until the week before the first BCS rankings are released.

Auburn should be #1. They played the most difficult schedule and pummelled their opponents. They have beaten everyone except LSU by 18+ points, including wins against Tennessee and Georgia. Their non-conference schedule was quite week but they play in the best conference in 2004. The biggest knock I have against them is that they weren't ranked in the top 5 to start the year (*snicker*).

OU should be #2. They have played in a very tough Big 12 South division, are tops in the computer rankings, and shut out the #5 team in the country in Texas.

USC should be #3. Other than a vastely overrated Cal team, who have they beaten this year?
