Last night's game along with the ensuing final rankings by many of the pollsters only adds more evidence that this system that they call "ranking" is so screwed up. I am glad that OSU managed to covet one of the titles a couple of years ago but now I wonder how much it really means? I sat up last night and watched an undoubtedly ecxellent football team in USC just pummel a team which did not belong on the same field and I wondered to myself, "Is Oklahoma the best team to compete for this title?" If that was the case then congratulations USC because you are about ten times better than everyone else in the college football. Then as I am driving to work this morning I find out by no surprise that all of the pollsters chose USC as their champion. After all who else would you pick...except perhaps a few votes that could fall the way of either of a couple other undefeated teams. But the real icing on the cake was to find out that this pathetic Oklahoma team still gets recognized as the third best team in the country???? Give me a break! How can you insult a team like Utah who did everything they could to stake claim to a national championship by winning every time they were on the field by putting Oklahoma ahead of them? I agree that given the layout of the system there is really no way to justify putting Utah at number one over USC or Auburn due to strength of schedule. But you can justify putting Oklahoma ahead of them by any stretch of the imagination in my book. Granted Utah played in a smaller conference but they had four games against teams from the major conferences and won those three by a combined total 145-50. And had an average margin of victory at 42-20 for the season. Oklahoma squeaked out a win against Oklahoma State and the Buckeyes literally tore up Oklahome State. And Ohio State gets a number 20 ranking??!! It is hard to defend the Bucks to get a higher ranking because of their mid-season stumblings but I have a hard time thinking that the Bucks would not fair well against the Sooners. All of this makes my head spin trying to make sense out of it. But then I just take a deep breath and relax and thank God that basketball season is here because when this season ends we will know who is the champion because they will have had to prove it on the court in a tournament.
