November has always been "argument month" so what are we waiting for?
Alabama's best non-league win came against an unranked Virginia Tech team coming off losses to unranked Duke and Boston College. The Crimson Tide also scheduled Colorado State, Georgia State and Chattanooga.
Florida is 4-4.
Ohio State's card included Buffalo, San Diego State, California and Florida A&M, and now the Buckeyes want us to consider their national-title case?
Baylor scheduled Wofford, Buffalo and Louisiana Monroe (Louisiana Madison must have been busy).
We have a problem here.
The top five undefeated teams in the Bowl Championship Series standings can all finish undefeated without anybody playing each other.
These schools represent the five major conferences, yet only two can qualify for BCS title game.
This is the year where the title could be decided by who you have to play, however, not who you chose to play.
Forget out-of-conference play — it's in-conference that counts.
Despite the traffic jam on top, the BCS race is easy to figure out so long as nobody loses.
It doesn't matter that Florida State jumped Oregon for No. 2 Sunday in the BCS standings. Oregon figures to swipe No. 2 right back if it defeats No. 5 Stanford on Thursday and hold it provided the Ducks finish 13-0 with the Pac-12 championship.
There is other supporting evidence, beyond the eyeball test, that the SEC and Pac-12 are the best leagues.
Jeff Sagarin runs one of six computer systems used in the BCS formula, but he also rates each conference by divisions.
Sagarin's top division is the SEC West, where Alabama resides.
His No. 2 division is the Pac-12 North, where Oregon resides.
The Pac-12 South is third followed by the SEC East, which makes it a clean sweep.
