When will Coaches and sports writers learn?
That you never vote against the SEC.
This is a response to Oklahoma being ranked 1st overall in the coaches poll, and probably the AP poll as well.
Oklahoma has a good team, and they probably will go to the national championship game. However, they will lose, to whoever represents the SEC in the national championship game. At this point its not debatable. 5 straight, 6 out of the last 7. (USC was vacated)
Alabama, South Carolina or LSU will represent the SEC in the National Championship game this season, and whoever does will soundly defeat Oklahoma by at least 20 points.
Last year my Crimson Tide was preseason No. 1, which I liked, of course, but look what happened. They were a young team and I felt that they succumbed to all the pressure that goes along with the ranking. Since they were young I didn’t feel that they should have been the preseason #1 even if they did win it all the year before. They are a more mature team this year even though we graduated some great offensive players. I kind of like sitting in the #2 spot. I like Oklahoma sitting in the hot seat and having that big target on their back. Let them deal with the pressure. They will eventually succumb, if not, I still see an SEC team Bama or LSU in the Number 2 position and winning the title game.
C dubb. If Mccoy would have stayed in the game with Bama the score would have been much worse. Gilbert, the back-up, kept Texas in the game. Mccoy could have played but his Daddy knew he was getting spanked by Bama’s defense so he kept him out of the game. He didn’t want his poor little boy injured and possibly ruin his professional career.
Your excuses for those teams not winning over the SEC just doesn’t get it. You can say “what if” all day long but it just comes down that the SEC teams won and that’s all there is to say.
How is the college football championship determined?
I see that the BCS has Texas and USC still numbers 1 and 2(the two teams in the championship last year), but they both lost some very important players. I also see that the AP and coaches rankings are a bit different than the BCS. The AP and coaches polls have USC and Texas ranked lower than 1st and 2nd. How is the championship determined?
Hey, this is great! Its been about 20 minutes and I have 4 answers already. They range from good answers and good discussion. Keep them coming. Thanks!
But wait, I am going to UT(Texas) next semester and I have seen all kinds of 2005 Champs hats, gear, etc. This, of course when they won the title game last year. Are you sure there isnt a “champ” crowned each year?
A computer-generated formula that consists of the Harris Poll ranking, coaches ranking & the computer average of 6 rating systems. The averages of these three polls are divided by 100 to get the BCS number.
When does the Associated Press release their 2009 College Football Preseason Poll?
I saw the Coaches Poll and was just curious about the AP Poll.
I think it comes out next week some time!
