The two best teams do not include Ohio State who played no one of strength except Illinois, who beat them....it should be LSU/OU...Georgia should NOT be there because they didn't win the SEC...kind of like the year that Nebraska didn't win the Big 12 and STILL played Ohio State...."friggin' OU" played as well as anybody could play...even you have to admit that.,....though I know you won't...

Sorry, R, but I don't think a two-loss team deserves to be in there. OU was unquestionably the better team on that field last night, but those Colorado and Texas Tech losses speak loudly. OU wasn't ranked 9 last night for nothing.You know I don't like Ohio State, but they do have only one loss, and that seems fairer. By that standard, Ohio State and Kansas should play for the championship, but Kansas was exposed last week, and it wouldn't be a very interesting game. The only justification I can see for letting LSU in there is that their losses were both in triple overtime. Then again, a team that deserves to be playing for the national championship shouldn't need overtime to prove it. That said, I think LSU's going to come out #2 (after Ohio State) and all this will be over with.Anyway, at least we don't have to pretend that West Virginia is a legitimate contender anymore.

The only undefeated team is left low because they're so far away. The experts say Hawaii doesn't rate because their schedule isn't tough enough -- but the "tough" teams are afraid to come to Hawaii.(OK OK, Hawaii has been weak for years. All the more reason to give them a shot when they have a great season. Now, I'd better start praying that they aren't embarassed in the Sugar Bowl.)
