College Football Roundup: The Top 10 Can’t Win

I can’t tell if this is the greatest year of college football as far back as I can remember, or if it is the worst.  I will say that this  is the best opportunity that the BCS will ever have to prove its worth.  Sure everyone loves to see the dominant team destroy everyone in the field, but honestly I like this better.  The system is built so that you have to string together three or four good years to even have a sniff at the championship game.  You at least had to be ranked in the top 5 at the beginning of the season, and you had to essentially go undefeated.  (You could have a “quality loss” against another strong squad, but it better happen early in the season and you better dominate after that.)

This season is different.  Every team is catching losses, and bad ones at that.  Michigan set the stage when they lost to Appalachian State and Oregon in back to back weeks.  USC lost to Stanford, LSU dropped one to Kentucky (and almost Auburn Saturday night)  Texas has tanked, South Carolina gave it up to Vandy?!?!?, Oregon lost to Cal who is now on a two game losing streak which includes UCLA, the entire Big 10 has damn near disappeared.  So it is up for grabs right?  South Florida had a chance to make history (what a debate that would have been) but got jammed up by Rutgers on Thursday night.  (The number two team shouldn’t even be playing on Thursday night, much less losing).  Oh yeah, Ohio State, you haven’t played anyone yet.  You’re #1 by damn near default.  Youngstown State, Akron, Kent State and Minnesota all in one season?  All in the first eight games?  Nice scheduling, play someone next time.

So here we are with five weeks left until the end of the regular season and the top 5 is Ohio State, Boston College, LSU Arizona State and Oregon.  Although they caught a scare last night, I still think LSU is probably still the best shot to be in the championship game.  I think the winner of Oregon v. Arizona State will be there too.

The biggest story is that the BSC system and the computers actually get to do some work this year.  Every year that there aren’t three undefeated teams at the top is another year that whatever computer geeks programmed the black box-like “computer” can breathe easily that their “system” doesn’t come under scrutiny.  The funny thing is, no matter what happens and no matter who wins this year, the top five next year will be USC, LSU, Ohio State, Florida, and Michigan…or something like it.

Stay away from that top 10 if you aren’t ready for the heat.  Those squads are dropping like flies.
