    Yea I'm looking at it. I guess the perfect storm did happen but it still looks like it will be close. Kent state could have easily done it with a win.

    The AP Poll is the reason the BCS was created b/c of all the SPLIT National Championships they were responsible for creating.

    It's completely Human Based, therefore it is indeed flawed and subject to political bias.

    Why would you rank a team that is suspended? That's just for starters. Had they voted OSU #1 at the end of the year the BCS Winner would have to be split yet again.

    We have had split National Championships even after the BCS was created, we are going to a playoff system because the BCS system is flawed and subject to political bias also. The AP ranks suspended teams because they aren't limited to the constraints of the BCS system, those teams are still playing thus they are ranked accordingly.

    It's not perfect and was always in need of a play-off system but the BCS is much better than just Sports Writers voting which is purely Human.

    So if Bama wins the NC Title game and the AP Voters had moved OSU to #1 being the only Undefeated AQ Team, you'd consider them the National Champion?

    If Bama wins the AP Voters will not move OSU to #1, but yes I feel the AP is a better system than the BCS.

    years before you were probably born they had a UPI/Coaches, AP and a CFBWA (writers) poll....and there were 4 Major Bowls: Cotton-Sugar-Orange-Rose

    There has always been a human element to the rankings....only recently did they incorporate Sagarin and USA Today when they became the self anointed authority

    Yeah, The Capital One Bowl really screwed things up. LSU can get screwed in bowl bids like no SEC team can. LSU lost to Georgia in The SEC CHAMP GAME in 05 & went to The Peach Bowl. LSU beat TAMU & South Carolina, yet play in a lower bowl game than both. How does The Capital One Bowl not pick a SEC Best team????
