LOL. I said dominate. I left those games out because they didn't dominate. My words, My opinion.

'Bama is the best in CFB and has been for awhile. But to think another undefeated season is a given is laughable. Baylor and Oregon have the best shot to go undefeated IMO. I also think there will be no more than 2 undefeated at the season. One will most likely get left out of the BCS MNC because a one loss SEC team will not drop further than #2. Glad to see the BCS era come to an end. For the most part the BCS MNC games have been a crapfest.

Ill give you Texas A&M, but didnt dominate Virginia Tech?..LOL

Baylor and Oregon schedules are well.....soft IMO. But I dont think either will go undefeated, especially Baylor.

Ive never had an issue with the BCS, especially if you remember the way it was before the BCS came along. All this whining, crying, moaning basically comes from the fact the last 7 BCS champs are from the SEC.

You perceive SEC hate in the strangest of places. It's more about the BCS MNCG crappy matchups/crappy games. I don't think a 4 team playoff would have necessarily changed the last 7 outcomes of the MNC. It probably would have given us fans a lot better matchups/games though. I used to defend the BCS years ago. I'm glad CFB is moving on from the BCS era.

You would rather have it like it was before the BCS?. Split national title winners?, etc. We can set up good match ups on paper, but we cant control what happens on the field. Alabama vs Notre Dame was a great matchup on paper and it was well hyped, but who expected a 42-14 blowout?.

Everyone expected a blowout. What planet do you live on? Media hypes teams all the time. It isn't anything new.

BCS is terrible. Alabama earned its place but it allows teams that aren't great to have cupcake schedules and get in to the bcs. It is better than the old system but it still sucks. 4 team playoff is not enough but it is better. Replace bowls with a true playoff.

IIRC, all of Baylor's wins so far have been over teams with losing records.

They are just entering the meat of their schedule and will be lucky to be undefeated when the Bears mudhole the Longhorns in December.

Baylor needs at least 4 of these teams to LOOSE at least one game. They will NOT leap frog any of these teams if they are undefeated at seasons end;
Alabama
Oregon
Ohio State
FSU
Missouri

i think Baylor is a long shot at best.
