The BCS Standings are once again out and the folks in Eugene are likely imploding with the hopes of beating teams by 3-plus TD will continue to not cost them in the rankings.
Remember, the computer rankings are vital although the Harris and Coaches Poll also count towards the BCS.
Plus, we are still in October and I doubt the rankings will remain this awkward in terms of where teams should be ranked as opposed to where they currently are.
Let us get to the biggest jokes in terms of where those teams should be ranked instead of where they are though.
We have learned that the computer rankings despite the ACC and more importantly they are flat out in love with the Big 12.
Think I am sadly misinformed?
Guess again because there is no reason for West Virginia to still be ranked No. 19 overall, but they are miraculously ranked No. 15 in the computer rankings.
They just gave up 104 points and 1,155 yards over the last two weeks and I swear I had a dream in which yours truly score a few long TD catches against them!
Texas A&M is another team that suffered a brutal loss, but the Aggies are somehow still ranked No. 20 overall and No. 17 in the computer polls despite losing two games already. I understand how it was to arguably the two best defenses on the planet, but they were both at home and they have not exactly killed their competition this season.
Yes, they are legit top 25 contenders as they should at least eight games this season, but they are being treated as if they still have a shot to play in a BCS bowl which is a joke.
Speaking of BCS potential, Texas Tech will have a chance to dethrone Kansas State this weekend. It helps to have the computers on your side, as they are currently ranked No. 9 and are No. 14 overall.
These Big 12 teams are worthy of getting ranked fairly high, but the computer’s made them seem as if they are world beaters (which could not be further from the truth).
They have the Sooners ranked fairly high, which is dead on but then they make me scratch my head again with the Longhorns (who were my Big 12 favorites) ranked No. 20 in the computer’s poll!
I love my burnt orange, but there is no chance in hell that you can have them ranked anywhere near your top 15-20. I have them barely ranked in my top 30, which would be dead on if you ask your average college football expert.
Do not forget about how highly the computer’s think of Kansas State by the way. The Wildcats have two first place votes in the computer rankings, which averages out to the No. 2 spot (No. 3 overall).
Hopefully Oregon and Alabama did not bother to look at their slots, since the Tide are shamefully No. 4 and those filthy good Ducks are disrespected at No. 6!
I could care less if they played Nicholls State twice, they still look better than teams such as Notre Dame, Kansas State or even Florida.
We want the rankings to reflect upon how you think good they currently are. If the Ducks were struggling or were not that great, I would have them no higher than fifth but guess what?
They are as good as it gets right now with their incredible, killer speed on both sides of the ball. There is nothing that can phase this Chip Kelly-led squad right now and as long as they take care of their business things will take care by itself.
The same goes for Alabama, who potentially could meet up with an unbeaten Florida Gators squad on December 1.
Kansas State will get jobbed if they run the table since the Big 12 no longer has a conference title game, so a team like Notre Dame even would likely reap the benefits if they remained undefeated.
All in all, not too many worries since we are after all still shy of Halloween.
