I'm not sure if Boise will be #1 when it standings come out, but even if they were #1. I don't see why some anti-Boise fans are so worried about the initial standings when the main argument is their weak conference schedule so their lead should shrink as the conference slate progresses.

But that's the weird thing about the BCS. They first put computers in the system to be the objective observer of who are the best teams in college football. However, if the rankings spit out by the computers do not match close enough the subjective rankings made by human observers, the formula has to be scrapped and tweaked so the computer rankings fall more in line with the AP/Harris/Coaches polls.

It's a historic day in Oregon Football. And look out Boise, Oklahoma is right on your heals having already jumped the Horny Frogs. I had little doubt Oregon would earn the #1 spot in the AP, I still wouldn't be surprised to see Boise St. #1 in the BCS when it's released this evening though....we'll see.

Not sure why ESPN hasn't updated the full rankings. :-S

The BCS standings are up. OU #1 and UO #2, I am okay with that. ;-D

I won't be at all surprised to see Auburn or LSU jump to 3 next week depending on who wins. and Michigan State leap frog both the Horny Frogs and Boise in 2 weeks if they beat Iowa.

The computers really like Mizzou; they're 18th in the polls but computers bumped their BCS ranking up to 11. 8-o

I'd like to be confident about their chances against OU on Saturday, but they haven't played a halfway decent team yet, so it's impossible to say what their chances are. A blowout is entirely possible.

New BCS poll

I don't min Auburn jumping to #1 at all this week. The last thing I want is Oregon strolling in to So Cal with #1 next to their name.

Yeah, no joke! I think Oregon, BSU, TCU (and really everyone else in the top 8) is like, "Thank you very much, as long as we have that spot at the beginning of December after you choke Auburn" :-?

If Auburn runs the table and loses to Alabama or loses in the SEC CG, I don't think that would qualify as choking in any way. Alabama is one of the five best teams in the country.

EDIT: Maybe if they lose to SC in the championship game after beating Alabama it could be considered a choke, although I'd venture to say that South Carolina is to good to be considered choke-worthy. Choking would have been Michigan State losing to Northwestern last week after receiving some national attention.

I really like that Oregon controls their own destiny, win out and they're in, there is no doubt about that. Nobody will be leapfrogging over them as long as they keep winning. Same with Auburn, as long as they win out they will hold that #1 spot. Believe it or not, Alabama is actually in the best shape of all the teams immediately following Auburn and Oregon. If they run through their schedule, beat Auburn and win the SEC championship game they will jump an undefeated Boise, TCU, Utah, Mizzou, and Mich. St. They obviously do need Auburn to stay number 1 until the meet them November 26.

Expect TCU to jump Boise in the BCS standings today. :-t

Auburn has jumped Boise in the Coaches Poll. And I know Boise fell 2 spots in the Sagarin computer.
