Cal's only loss was to #1 USC. Texas' only loss was to #2 Oklahoma.
And Cal's loss to USC was razor-thin close, if the kicker didn't miss the gimme field goal it would have gone into overtime. Also, how many QBs tie NCAA passing records (22 straight completions) against the #1 defense in the nation? (I'll give you a hint; it's less than 2).
Cal's only loss was to USC..ok. But who did they beat? NOBODY.
Like I said, Cal essentially had two losses. They never beat Oregon. I could've gone out on that football game and caught that pass that would've beaten Cal, he was literally standing there waiting for a floater to hit him dead in the chest without a DB within 12 yards of him.
And since when is USC the #1 defense? Auburn has the #1 defense at 11.5 ppg. And if USC played in a D1 conference then they wouldn't even be on the list.
They should make the Pac-10 and Big East merge, and then re-apply together as one conference for reinstatement into the BCS picture.
Like I've said in the past, in the last 2 years I can pick out a 3-week span of many of the other ranked teams schedules where they played A) more ranked teams and B) more top 10 teams than USC or Cal do in an entire season.
I love how people were "unimpressed" with Auburns' 10 point win over #16 Tennessee a few weeks back, but didn't bother to mention USC's narrow 5-point escape against a putridly horrible unranked UCLA team a couple of hours earlier. USC gets a pass though because if anyone brings it up all their little sympathizers cry "west coast bias."
If USC or Cal were in the SEC they'd have 3 losses.
