    So much for the pre-season BCS rankings. What a joke.

    College football always has been and will always be an exhibition sport. I love it when Notre Dame and Michigan stink.

    What's the over/under on how long the Michigan coach stays employed?

    I would say that the AD is accepting resumes as we speak and will be letting the OC and DC know that their opportunity to be a candidate for the HC job will be solely measured on their recruiting commitments.

    I feel bad for any team Michigan would beat this year.

    How about Sunday morning???

    4th Qtr.

    Ducks 32

    Michigan 7


    Trivia: When was the last time Michigan lost 2 in a row at home?

    My guess is sometime before 1930...

    Michigan is proof positive that BCS Rankings are "BS"....

    BCS isn't coming out for a few weeks, and michigan will be nowhere near the top 25 by then.

    That will probably happen to Notre Dame next week.:)

    That QB, Dixon from Oregon is impressive. Looks like a VY that can actually pass the football.

    And that running back of thiers, Jonathan whats-his-name is a stud.

    Prior to his senior season, Dixon had an TD-INT ratio of 18:17.

    After his junior season, Young had a ratio of 44:28.

    Just cuz a guy can run & pass doesnt automatically make him Vince Young.

    Unless Jamaal Charles is just as good as Reggie Bush because he is fast & agile.

    And Jonathan Stewart is the Oregon RB.

    I'm sure he's referring to the pre-season rankings, but it doesn't change his point. The rankings are a joke. BCS, AP, Coaches poll, it doesn't matter.

    If they HAVE to do rankings, they should do it like the BCS and not come out with them until well into the season.

    As for Michigan, it was nice to see them drop completely out. I think it was a couple of years or so ago that it took Florida St. to lose 4 games before they were dropped. They were clearly being voted on by reputation, and that's a joke.

    College football is whack. They need to come correct and have a playoff. How stupid do you have to be to not figure out that a 16 team college football playoff would be bigger than March Madness? Oh, let's vote for a champion....yeah, that's much better.

    Comparing college football to basketball is kinda ridiculous.

    To ask college kids to play that many games is dumb. Football is way too violent for those kids to put their NFL careers on the line for a 20 game season. Injuries are way too frequent. Maybe if all the college players were paid (like at USC) they would do it, but that isnt gonna happen.

    Also, the conferences & schools absolutely bank on the bowl games, & if there were a playoff then they wouldnt receive as much money.

    Thats the world today. Money. Money. Money.

    The BCS banks. Why would they wanna change it?

    who cares about preseason polls, they don't determine anything, they're just a guage for writers, coaches, and fans to look at for the start of the season. there's nothing wrong with having preseason polls, they're just a little fun and certainly help garner interest in teams to start a season.

    Then I guess college football is dumb because they just pretty much went to a 12 game regular season schedule, that doesn't include your conference championship, then a bowl game. For the slow, that's a 14 game season.

    You cut the regular season back to 10, you have a 16 team playoff, where at the most, only 2 teams would be playing 4 extra games. You can still have the bowls, just play those playoff games in the same bowls you have now. And to get the rest of the bowls in, you have a seperate 16 team playoff bracket that would be similar to the NIT. That would be 30 games for 30 bowls. That's plenty.

    And how would you not make as much money with a playoff? The advertising money would be ridiculous. The schools and conferences would make just as much if not MORE money.

    And I wasn't comparing basketball to football.....duh. I was comparing the money that tournament makes and the casual fan interest in it to the potential I think there would be for a college football playoff system to surpass that.
