AP top 25 outlook

Posted on: November 23, 2008 3:30 pm
 
AP Top 25 1. Alabama (63): just needs to prepare, and take care of business. They honestly look like they have fallen somewhat. 2. Florida (2): my number 1A team right now, they essentially had a week off. 3. Oklahoma: my 1B, they looked unstoppable in Norman. Key words: in Norman. OSU will be a tough road test, then hopefully Mizzou. 4. Texas: Prove that you should be ahead of Oklahoma, and utterly destroy A&M like you're supposed to. 130-14 should do it. 5. USC: Doesn't even control their own destiny, but could be in the NCG if the cards burn right. 6. Penn State: Rose Bowl bound, but I don't think that 3OSU would be a worthy test. Excuse me, *retest*. 7. Texas Tech: Sorry, but the Guns Broke. Now go annihilate Baylor and watch Bedlam. Gorram, they could still win the South! 8. Utah: CONRATULATIONS! You did it! Now just wait and see what the hell is going to happen to the rest of the CFB world. 9. Boise State: Left out unless Oregon takes the Civil War, and 3OSU's Rose berth with it. 10. Ohio State: Nambypambies. Sorry, I had to say it sometime. Have fun not being in the Rose Bowl. 11. Oklahoma State: watch out, they've played spoiler before and are looking to do it again. See OU 2001, 2002. 12. Missouri: totally forgotten team that could win the Big 12. Doubt it though. 13. Georgia: Another forgotten team, that will settle for the Cotton or less. 14. TCU : Simply a boost for OU's computer rating at this point. 15. Ball State: Sorry guys, you picked a bad year to strike in. Great job, and you'll get a boost for a while. 16. Cincinnati: Go Bearcats go! Make the BCS (and help OU) for the first time, always something to cheer for. 17. Oregon State: Only one more war to fight: the Civil War. Which will be totally uncivil, and probably won by the Beavers for the Rose. 18. Georgia Tech: Umm, go ACC? Atlantic Chaos Cabal? Sure why not. 19. Oregon: 3OSU has too much on the line to drop this one. 20T.Boston College: who even cares right now? 20T.Brigham Young: Max Hall might be a good NFL QB, but nothing much to show for this team. 22. Michigan State: still can be proud of Javon Ringer, but just couldn't step up to the next level. 23. Florida State: please can you guys take put the Gators? PLEASE? We're all against the BCS here, come on. 24. Northwestern: The upstarts of the Big 10, but next year will show how much they got out of this great season. Good luck! 25. Ole Miss: Please can you play Alabama that way next year? And just carry on with the Florida and LSU plans.

Yeah, Oregon State is having injury issues with both the Quiz and Moevao having issues. I think Canfield may end up starting again for the Beavers, especially after he engineered the comeback against Arizona last week.

Man, after Boise's performance last night, it would be an even bigger shame for them to be left out. When is the last time Fresno lost 61-10? Boise just decimated them--and 7 of Fresno's points came on a pick 6 when Moore wasn't in the game because they gave the senior QB the start as a symbolic gesture since it was senior night.

Looks like Va. Tech is finally about to clear up some of the ACC mess as they intercepted a pass late to keep a lead against Virginia.

Also, does Boise gets in over tOSU if 3OSU loses?

Well the Quizziler is doubtful, therefore USC has a greatly improved shot at the Rose... and consequently Boise in the Fiesta again.

Only shot Boise has is if 3OSU drops the Civil War, thereby removing USC's at-large status.

Some interesting thoughts on the top 25 here. I agree with you that Florida and Oklahoma clearly look like the best teams in the nation at the moment, but Texas does have it's own compelling argument. Honestly, this is turning into a BCS nightmare with the Sooners looking so good but the 'Horns having beaten the Sooners head to head. I think Utah may well be favored in it's BCS bowl depending on the matchup--mainly if they get the ACC or Big East Champion. As for Oregon State, it would be very weird to see them play a rematch with Penn State for the Rose Bowl. The BSU group (Boise State and Ball State) is kind of getting a bad deal by going undefeated and being left out. I wish there was a way to get them in the show at least initially, because all you can do is beat the teams in front of you. Yet another year that shows that there needs to be a playoff!
