07:25 AM ET 10.22 | If the season had ended on Monday, Alabama and Florida State would be meeting in Pasadena, thanks to their respective rankings the first set of BCS standings. Oregon fans really have no need to worry because both human polls that are used in the BCS calculations have the Ducks second and the Seminoles third, but the computer component of the standings give Jimbo Fisher's squad the advantage. Looking at the big picture, Oregon is in a much better spot than Florida State. The Ducks have a big advantage in the polls, while the Seminoles' computer ranking (the best overall computer ranking among all teams) won't hold up as strongly against Oregon's because the Ducks have three remaining opponents that currently reside in the BCS Top 25. That is huge for their rating moving forward assuming they win, of course.

Whats to stop Ohio st from another undefeated regular season? Michigan? Nebraska?

Everyone has Bama in the Title game already, I'm not so sure they won't get upset before then.

And a fantastic week to you, Sir. Not one to remember for me. One year ago this Sat I had my first heart attack for about three hours, did not know what it was for what it was, then had a major one again the next day, started at 7 am, still did no know what it was, till my Wife finally took me to the hospital emergency room at 7 that evening, and still in the middle of it and having a stroke with it, still can't move my right side a year later. Gonna make it, they said I would never make it this long, don't give me any pity, none of you guys, I am strong, the Lord is my strength, and He will see me thru it all. Just hate seeing this weekend. I have gotten fairly good at one handed picking on this keyboard. fm me if you wish

Hang in there, sir. Bball season is coming!

In all honesty Oregon should have played Bama for the Title last, not my Irish. Notre Dame is not at that level yet.
I think we could have beat a team like K state in a BCS though.

The new playoff system cant come soon enough. And even then there will still be questions after the dust settles.

So being 1 spot ahead is a huge advantage??

That was my point yesterday: "The Ducks have a big advantage in the polls, while the Seminoles' computer ranking (the best overall computer ranking among all teams) won't hold up as strongly against Oregon's because the Ducks have three remaining opponents that currently reside in the BCS Top 25.". Just too much football left to worry about an early BCS poll, it can change in a heartbeat.

Van, good point. Bama still has to play LSU and who know about the winner of the East. If Mizzou is all that good, then they can beat Bama.

As of 10/22/2013 it is, but come 10/27/2013, it might not be. :-)

One year ago this Sat

One year ago this Saturday, "Good morning, Colonel" was the top story, and rumors of the second coming was #5 at best. It was a sign. Stick around a few more years, 0-6. Jesus doesn't take a back seat to just anybody, certainly not without reason.
