You oughta' look at the flip side, though...

Who do the South Central Louisiana State University Mud Dogs grab a program saving $900,000 payday game from?

Bobby Boucher can't hang around forever, can he?

Actually after ready a few things I can come back to the relizeation that my teams who I thought were terrible deserved to be in there.

But the likes of Boise State so high I would be skeptical, no dobut in the past few years they deserve it but got to look back at the history a bit as well.

For the upcoming season, that list would be dog****. It reaffirms my thoughts that ESPN is just a growing pile of dog**** as well.
Those are hardly top 40 teams. TCU, Tulsa and ECU would be more entertaining to watch than those craptastic squads. Heck I'll even throw Houston in there. Not to mention, no Pitt? UNC? Colorado?

Maybe I'm just a Conf USA homer. LOL

Yea how A&M got in there is beyond me, they have pretty much defined the word suck the past few years. They had a good one in 06 but other than that mediocrity would be the term I would use for them.

Maybe its because thay have beaten the mighty Longhorns twice out of the last three years. oohhh!

Yeah that list uses recent success as a marker, then leaves out TCU or Tulsa, Then it uses tradition and leaves out Pitt, UNC and Colorado for BSU and Utah. And Mizzou?! really?

I pretty much don't think anyone at ESPN has much of a clue anymore except for their own favs, That is all that top 40 list is, a bunch of those guys favorite teams.
