SOS of the 3 teams we were discussing.
This is generated by computers, so there is no bias. These are based on real numbers. Florida has played a tough schedule. Texas should be above Florida right now based on there schedule and what they have done with it, but it's not like Florida has not played a difficult schedule, and to compare it to PSU's is ridiculous IMO.
You also forgot that they dominated UGA
, and you may say that LSU is close to ran status, but they should have beat that Bama team that most have ranked number 1.
I think youre letting emotion get the best of you because youre again putting words in my mouth.
1) I did not compare FLA's sched against PSU's. I was comparing the PSU ranking argument against the FLA ranking argument.
2) You're right the computers arent biased. But what criteria are they using? I'll explain
3) My original point was how wacky the AP and Coaches poll were (FLA/OU above Texas). Sound like you now agree?
Heres what I see:
Texas: Big Wins - nOklahoma by 10, Missouri by 25, Okie St by 4
Loss - last second 6 point loss at undefeated Texas Tech
The rest - blowout wins over everyone else (Baylor probably the best of the bunch)
Oklahama: Big Wins - Cincinnati by 26, TCU by 25
Loss - 10 point loss to nTexas
The rest - blowout wins over everyone else (Kansas best of bunch)
Florida: Big Wins - LSU by 30, nGeorga by 39
Loss - 1 point loss to Ole Miss
The rest - blowout wins over everyone else (probably toss up between Kentucky, Miami)In my mind
, Texas is clear cut above the other 2. I have the Big Wins between OU and FLA ranked as such: Georgia, TCU, Cincy, LSU (basically even). I dont think that discussion is warranted. The "rest" do favor FLA. I genereally dont go that far unless the "meaningful" games are even, but FLA's also ran teams are overall better than OU's also ran teams if you want to play that card.
If you agree that Texas should be ranked as the top 1-loss team out there then we have little to argue. Like I said before, the OU or FLA argument is pretty much splitting hairs. I'm not near as bullish on LSU as most are and that may be the crux of the argument. Ultimately, as long as an undefeated/1-loss SEC team plays an undefeated/1-loss Big12 team, I'll be happy.
That is what I think should happen. What I understood from reading, and I guess I am wrong, I though everyone was saying that if TT wins their conference and FLA wins the SEC that TT should play Texas again, or if Texas were somehow to win they should get OK, or if OK were to win they should get to play Texas again. That is where my argument came in. If I understand it now correctly, we agree that if Florida were to win out they should play the winner of the Big 12 that had 1 loss and not the Big 12 play itself again.
