They deserve a shot at the national title. Along with Georgia, LSU, Virginia Tech, and USC. We really need a playoff!

I agree tnbound. I doubt it will happen, but I'm glad for the Sooners!

Ya they will probably pit LSU and Ohio State. Which I dont agree with at all...LSU won a few games where they obviously truly got lucky. Many analysts agree that OU is the best team right now. With Bradford and English back in it will be hard to ignore OU. This year it will be up to the voters in picking what team they feel is the best. We need a playoff system(obviously).

I thought LSU played a pretty uninspired game against Tennessee. Had Erik Ainge been able to tell the difference between yellow and orange, LSU would have likely lost, so thats pretty bad considering TN wasn't playing very good either. I don't think a 2 loss team that played with such a lackluster performance and has the most recent loss out of the 2 loss teams in the picture deserves the shot. But they will get it because everyone thinks the SEC automatically deserves a shot more than anyone else.

Once again though, its like lining up contestants at a beauty pageant and talking out why one is better than the other. College football will never get my full respect until they can crown a true champion through the playoffs.

I've watched all the teams play because I'm a football freak. OU looked better than any team has looked (last night) this season. Wow! Many people don't even know that their qback went down (and out) on the first drive in the Tx. Tech game, and they played at Tech, and still almost won. Man, I was impressed last night!

Default This is to funny!

'Twas the night before the Big XII and all through the land,
not a Tiger was stirring, not even the band.
Their Jockeys were hung by the locker with care,
in hopes that the Sooners soon would be there.
Truman was nestled all snug in his bed,
while visions of the BCS danced in his head.
And Pinkel in his kerchief full of Tiger pride,
and Bob and the Sooners ready to ride.
When down in San Antone there arose such a clatter,
Chase sprang from his bed to see what was the matter.
He realized the Option was gone in a flash,
and Maclin's dreams of running had just been dashed.
The Tiger tight ends trembled as they watched the show,
A Crimson and Cream luster set the horizon aglow.
When what to their wondering eyes should they find,
but a miniature Schooner, seven National Titles behind.
With a wizened old driver, skilled in leading his troops,
they knew in a moment it must be Bob Stoops.
More rapid than Temple his players they came,
and he whistled and shouted and called them by name.
"On Bradford, on Joe John, now Patrick and Murray!
On Chris Brown! On Iglesias! On Hartley and Kelly!
To the top of the conference! To the top of it all!
Now dash their hopes! Dash their dreams! Dash away all!"
And then in a twinkling, the Tigers fought back a scream,
and Chase saw the last of his Heisman trophy dream.
The defense drew in their breath and looked all around,
and realized that their "Pig" was nowhere to be found.
Bob's eyes how they twinkled, his coaches how merry!
As they carried on the legacy left them by Barry.
Gary's sad little face and a fear in his belly,
he shook on the field as his knees turned to jelly.
Pinkel spoke not a word, and the ball they couldn't carry,
Stoops filled up the scoreboard and then turned to Gary.
And laying his hand on the shoulder of his friend,
he gave Pinkel a nod and said, "Like Norman again."
Bob sprang to the Schooner, to his team gave a shout,
to the BCS they flew and left Mizzou down and out.
And we heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
"Boomer Sooner to All and to All a Good Night!"

OU is clearly the best team currently. I would have loved to see an OU USC matchup. Now that USC is healthy again they are looking good. THAT would have been a good game, but instead we are stuck with LSU OSU

I agree wholeheartedly bls5555. So do a lot of fans, according to the football forums.
