    I wonder how Ohio State can be ranked so high and then I remember they play the rest of the Big Ten.

    usc is in the top five or ten of every magazine poll. which is to say, most experts still think they have a great team. they could actually do really well this year.

    the key with usc is if kiffin will be able to keep the kids attention after the first signs of struggle in a probation year.

    oregon st. might surprise people as well.

    So USC is being straight up ignored in the polls eh? How does that effect the other Pac-10 teams' strength of schedule? Will losses and wins alike just be ignored by the computers?

    Negative. There's this running back whose absence might be more than a little noticeable.

    Go Huskies.

    College football polls are stupid.


    Pre-season polls are the most stupid.

    This.

    Only good thing about this year's pre-season poll is Boise State is FINALLY in a position to really fuck the BCS. I will be rooting hard for smurf turf this year.

    Pretty much in every poll except the BCS poll, who decided they didn't want to exclude them to keep the integrity of their poll (Funny Right?). If USC should be ranked in the BCS at the end of the season every team behind them is going to be moved up a spot when it comes to deciding what bowls to be played in.

    Think they will pick up Houston to make a 12 team conference?

    I hope so.

    Well, I suspect that BYU won't want to join the WAC for non-football programs, now that the WAC will basically be:

    Hawaii
    Idaho
    Utah State
    Louisiana State
    San Jose State
    New Mexico State

    with likely adds being selected from
    Sacramento State
    University of Texas (San Antonio)
    Portland State
    UC Davis
    Cal Poly
    Montana

    They still might find it desirable to become independent for football since ESPN supposedly wants to give them a huge Notre Dame TV deal, and they're supposedly looking at the WCC (Gonzaga, etc) for non-football sports programs.

    I'm sure that they're considering such things. There's also a possibility that they might grab Utah State from the WAC to get BYU to stay. Not sure the theory behind that (since their rivalry is with Univ of Utah), but I guess there's some benefit to having an in-state conference rival, as well.

    Whatever pushes it to 12 is fine by me. Any word on whether or not the Big 12 (now 10) will get to have a conference championship game? They better not.

Dawgs just haven't put it all together since the early eighties...still been good though, but just not great like Florida, Bama, LSU. It a damn tough conference.

    This BYU story gets more interesting. Apparently the MWC invited Utah State (who declined), Fresno St, and Nevada as a last minute emergency measure to keep BYU from leaving. And now the MWC is talking about a merged championship game with (probably) CUSA with the winner getting an automatic BCS bid.

    Ft Worth Star-Telegram: http://www.star-telegram.com/2010/08...#ixzz0xCNHLENp


    By Gil LeBreton

    glebreton@star-telegram.com

    You knew, of course, that when its neighbor Utah deserted for the Pac-10, that things were destined not to be taken well at BYU.

    Leaving for greener pastures, after all, is an old BYU Cougars' trick, not the Utes'. BYU dissatisfaction is what started the Mountain West Conference in the first place.

    If you're keeping score at home, in fact -- and in Fort Worth, BYU fans, they are, they are -- Brigham Young University has now tried to walk out on TCU twice.

    Can we all agree that the Cougars were on the brink of declaring their separation from the MWC?

    Leagues don't call 11 p.m. news conferences unless they expect something to be happening early the next morning.

    It's not, it seems, that the Mountain West needed Fresno State and Nevada to further its quest for an automatic BCS berth. It was BYU that needed Fresno and Nevada to help provide a soft Western Athletic Conference landing.

    What followed was the classic scene from Peanuts, with Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown.

    Pretty embarrassing, especially for a school that has tried to bully the last two conferences it's been in.

    What happens now was the mystery of the day on Thursday, a day when athletic directors were curiously unable to return phone calls and even some conference commissioners were nowhere to be found.

    This much we knew -- whatever BYU originally planned did not take place Thursday.

    If taking two teams from the WAC was MWC commissioner Craig Thompson's bold ploy to ensure his league's survival, it worked.

    The conference lives. But where will its champion be playing football in the Januarys to come? The question persists.

    That is what Thursday's meetings in Colorado Springs, Colo., were all about, according to various sources.

    Late Thursday night, a source close to the situation said that representatives from the Mountain West and another league -- believed to be Conference USA -- met in Colorado to discuss a plan to match the two conferences' champions in a title game, with the winner gaining an automatic BCS berth.

    "You're on the right track," said the source. "The lawyers have told them [the BCS] that it's time to give someone else a chance."

    Before this week, the Mountain West had seemed content to continue building its football portfolio -- BCS standings finishes, top 25 national rankings and overall conference strength -- in hopes of meeting the published criteria in two years as an automatic qualifier for a BCS bowl game.

    Where that portfolio and Thursday's reported prize correspond isn't known.

    The automatic bid will be available whether BYU remains in the MWC or not, a source said.

    No one was talking Thursday about a merged, 23-team league, or even a fat-trimmed 20-team one. But there would be scheduling crossovers between the two leagues in some sports.

    The marquee part of the agreement would be the football championship game.

    An 11-team Mountain West Conference could be unwieldy. Teams won't be eager to play 10 conference games.

    But if the ultimate prize is a berth in the title game with the Conference USA champion, they don't need to play all of the other teams every season. Nor would it be really necessary for the MWC to add a 12th team and play a league championship game.

    Conference title games are not always lucrative necessities.

    In years, perhaps, when two undefeated Mountain West teams did not meet during the regular season, the league could designate the higher team in the BCS standings as its title game representative.

    No announcement came Thursday, in any case.

    No defection press conference by BYU took place, either.

    It's also a longshot, but UCLA and another unnamed school is protesting Utah's joining of the PAC-10, so there's been (probably false) rumors that Utah might rejoin the MWC to keep BYU, thus giving them the 12-teams and 6 upper-tier mid-majors (Utah, BYU, Boise State, TCU, Fresno, Nevada)
