It's not that, the pundits are talking about how all the teams (sans LSU and Ok St) have to pass the "eye test".

I still don't believe that the coaches poll serves that well. They have enough to worry about without watching god knows how many other teams than the one they need to focus on.

Don't like the SEC?

I'm going to put myself out there and say that if Oregon wins out, there's a very good chance they'll end up in the BCS title game, if Oklahoma St. loses to OU, which I think they might. I just hope that OU doesn't leap-frog their way back into title contention.

But I really find it hard to believe that the BCS system would allow an all-SEC title game, even if they appear to be the two more evenly-matched teams. The AP writers can basically sway the system if they feel like they need to, and there would be pressure to avoid an intra-conference rematch. In fact, that might be the tipping point that forces NCAA to adopt a playoff system. The major conferences, esp. the SEC, don't want to jeopardize what they have, which is an easier route to a national title. An 8-team playoff would make it harder, I think.

I'm still not 100 percent convinced LSU makes it to the end of the year undefeated. They should - they're that good. But I've seen the tigers collapse and blow winnable games before.

I hear ya. I love the SEC too, for different reasons. Actually I don't love the SEC, I root against most of the teams unless my LSU. Hate Bama, hate Florida, and hate Arky.

This is a good post, and at the risk of getting off topic, I agree. I think parity in the NFL invites more fans to be interested because more cities and teams are involved in the playoff chase. But gone are those super dominant top-tier teams that everyone either loved or hated. The Patriots and Steelers of today are probably the closest thing to that, but it's not quite the same as those old 49ers or Cowboys teams in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

for my DUCKS sake, I hope in a couple of weeks you hate Arky even more, I think that LSU and OK St have the best chances of losing a game in next week or two.

OSU is probably as good as they've ever been, but in the past they usually lose to Oklahoma when something's on the line for them. Most of the wins they've had have been cases where they had nothing to lose.

Hard to go too much on the past, though, the idea of OSU being in any kind of title chase is pretty new.
