    They are.

    One of the best rushing attacks in college football that i've ever seen, and their defense is far from being slouches. The ideal BCS title game for me is to see them vs Boise, but you know how the BCS works. :wadepalm:

    The ideal title game would be the two finalist in a sixteen or eight team playoff.

    Boise would be fun to see in a title game just to screw with the system, but I haven't seen enough from them during their tough games to make me think they deserve to be in it this year. I think Oregon might be the one that survives the season undefeated and makes the #2 spot at the end of the regular season.

    I know. I work for the U.S. Government and we always ask. "Why wouldn't they do that, it makes perfect sense." Well, that's why they don't do it cause it makes perfect sense.

    indeed, to much money involved for the have-nots for the schools to pass on

    Auburn vs. Alabama in the final game of the season. Should be an interesting final game but AL hasn't looked very good of late, they really need to get into their off week.

    Oregon looks mighty scary as well. There'd be some instant classics if they ever went to a playoff. Oregon, Auburn, TCU, Alabama, Boise. Such a shame.

    Does Cam Newton even throw the ball? (Not an avid watcher of Auburn football)

    TCU should join the Big 12, and Boise State should join the Pac 10. Otherwise I see no reason a team that's best opponent was Virginia Tech should be in the National Championship game. I think Boise State & TCU are two of the best teams in the nation, I just don't want it given to them after they both have had a cakewalk schedule this year. The only ranked opponents either team has beaten is Virgina Tech (#10) & Oregon State (#24). Virgina Tech is now ranked #25, while Oregon St is unranked.

    He's got a great arm and seems to make pretty good decisions with his passes. He is just so freakishly good at running the football that he doesn't have to pass very often.

    The problem is, bigtime programs don't want to play teams like TCU and Boise St. because if they lose it hits them in the rankings way worse (or at least it used to) than losing to another bigtime program. Unfortunately nobody will ever ever see the MWC as an AQ status conference now that Utah is leaving. Also, you can usually look through the top 25 at almost any time throughout the season and point out a few teams that are ranked who have played a bunch of nobodies.

    EDIT: Cam Newton must own hard then, because that dude ran all over LSU like it wasn't a big deal.

    And that's why I don't give a rat's ass about college football.

    I mean, I like for the Coogs to win and I'll watch the occasional game. But the college football season and the polls and everything is a pile of steaming manure.

    I want Oregon vs. Auburn for the NC at this point.

    I think both of these teams still have their work cut out for them though.

    Auburn @ Alabama will be a HUGE game, winner will likely go to the SEC Championship game and then Sugar Bowl (or NC).

    What would really fubar the SEC would be if Georgia really does have the team running on all cylinders now to sneak into the SEC east champion, into the SEC championship and win the damn thing over AL/LSU/AUB..
