    Ohio State's BCS avg is perfect at 1.0000
    USC is at .9460
    Michigan is at .9216

    Unless USC completely blows it against UCLA next week, it looks like an Ohio St.-USC title game. I have no problem with that. Michigan had their chance and they blew it. What I do have a problem with is the number 0.0244. That's the number that decides who plays against Ohio St. in the championship game. Nice way to determine a champion NCAA. Division III, II, and I-AA all have a playoff to determine their champion. We're stuck with a stupid computer choosing it. Ridiculous.

    Just goes to show that you can lose on the road to an unranked team and still make it to the top.

    the quality of your wins should ultimately determine how you're ranked. not the loss.

    I'm a UCLA fan.

    But looks like USC/OSU.

    GO BUCKEYES!

    Thats not how it should be, not even close.

    Michigan loses to the #1 team on the road by a mere 3 points, they deserve their rematch and Michigan is clearly the #2 team in the country, they would kill USC.

    USC loses to Oregon St., sorry you lose to a unranked team and your done.

    The BCS was put in place to give us the top two teams and once again it will fail

    Bull
    Crap

    They had their shot at OSU, they lost. Now USC has the chance.

    Yea but USC gets their shot on a neutral field & Michigan had to play on Ohio St's turf.

    I'm convinced Michigan would win on a neutral field.

    I don't understand the big gripe here. Arkansas, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon, Cal .... those are not rollovers. Like it or not USC has had a fantastic season save for a 2 point loss on the road. I hope this is how it ends up as I do not want to see a rematch. And as much as I like Troy Smith I will be pulling for the Trojans:shades:

    Both teams have 1 loss

    Michigan lost to the #1 team in the country by 3 points at their house

    USC got outplayed by lowly Oregon St. the game wasn't as close as the score

    Michigan is the better team.......period

    Ohio state is going to kill that team, by atleast a 14 point spread

    On a side note......I feel sorry for whatever team falls for Brady Quinn, that guy is a bust waiting to happen. He is so overrated and is riding on the Wies/Tom Brady coat tails....makes a good story and the press ran with it.

    When he wouldn't even talk to his OC up in the booth, it told everything I needed to know about him. He has his worst games in big games

    The only time I've seen Brady Quinn this year was against Michigan. Definitely not impressed.

    He didn't have ANY protection against Michigan.. I didn't get to see them against USC, but the amount of sacks USC had I could probably say the same thing. It's kind of hard to do anything when you have no time to set up.

    As a Texans fan, you should really understand that because its been happening to Carr his whole career.

    And yet we have been busting Carr all along.

    I watched the game & Quinn didnt suck, but he wasnt good either.

    It's understandable why you'd want to compare USC's non-conference schedule to Florida's. How 'bout discussing their conference schedules?

    i love how people will compare 2 or 3 games from one team's schedule to another. how bout all 12 games? UF's clearly played a tougher schedule overall than USC and michigan.

    Based on winning percentage:

    Florida- #1
    Michigan- #3
    USC- #5
    Notre Dame- #24

    Ohio St- #39

    http://web1.ncaa.org/d1mfb/2006/Internet/toughest schedule/ia_9games_cumm.pdf

    The schedule conflict looks too close to call. Florida is in 1st, but their schedule is only 2% higher than Michigan.

    I do think Michigan is the better team, but who wants to see that game again? Florida and USC still have a game to play, so we can discuss at a later date. To me USC could be better if they went with Mark Sanchez at QB over John Davis Booty. JDB is not what I thought he would be while Sanchez and his rocket arm are sitting on the bench!
