FSU may not win, but they are stacked with great athletes. Did you see Duke v. TAMU? FSU smoked Duke 45-7.
AU hasn't played anyone like FSU and I just don't see them keeping up with FSU. If there's any defense than can snuff AU, it's the Seminoles....and I'm not a fan of either team.

You can sugar coat it which ever way you want, they still beat them. A win is a win.

I'm not disputing that. I'm simply saying it's not like their defense played so well against UA, which you're very clearly implying it did.

It's going to be funny if Alabama is still ranked ahead of us. Kind of like how I always expect the refs to cheat and screw us, I also expect the rankings to treat us the same way.

I expect them to leave Bama ahead of us. Not on merit but on namesake.

Just doesn't work that way.

Make no mistake, the NCAA saw it coming. It was the price they were willing to pay to have a National Championship game. They knew that in order to get all conferences to sign on to the BCS, it had to pay off the weak sister conferences by promising them a BCS spot. If you look at the amount of money the NCAA has generated since the BCS commenced, you would agree it was worth the bargain with the devil. Billions and billions have been generated in the BCS era. It destroyed the Orange Bowl. But the NCAA got what it wanted but it had to do a deal with the devil.

It's possible, but don't be surprised if Oklahoma moves to #5 and we finish #6. It certainly would not surprise me at all.

Call me crazy, and I'm only asking, but is there a chance Clemtech passes us? My gut says no. If no, then I think we finish 7.

I'm not sure if you're being a little sarcastic, but I wouldn't be shocked if the pollsters end up doing this.

No. Even though I think the pollsters may be tempted to screw us by having Alabama, OU, and MAYBE Missouri ahead of us, I don't think they would move CU up that far, especially since we beat them convincingly. Yeah, I know we beat Missouri too, but they were right behind us in the polls, so it wouldn't be a big jump for them to pass us.

Resume: 11 Wins including 3 top 15 wins, possibly 2 top 10 wins. 10 pt victory over top 20 Wiscy team. two of them being on the road

Bad losses to two unranked teams on the road with an average margin loss being one score.
