USC in the Top 10 makes that poll a joke.

They lost to an unranked team. Oklahoma and Okie State should both be ahead of them, at the VERY least. Tech....I dunno. Two poor performances in the last two weeks are taking its toll. Did they really move up? I dont understand........


For us to play in the MNC, we still have to get thru Okie Light, Tech, KU, and the Ags. PLUS the B12CCG. Long season yet.

OSU is overrated and will be exposed next week, tech the same thing, OU lost more recently, but they were on their A game and still lost USC took the game off and barely lost. but since have played every game like it means something.

then there is big wins, usc beat Ohio st who has OU beaten?

Sadly for sooner, their signature game for the season is an L against #1. Maybe KU?

But USC did to a very bad Wash. St. team what Tech, if they are as good as they're ranked, should have doen to a equally as bad A&M. IMO, yes USC deserves to be in the top 5. A place Tech would be if they were good enough to put A&M and Nebraska away the way they should have been.

Tech has been underwhelming, at THIS point in the season. Their schedule is about to get kicked up a few notches, and their worth, or lack there of, will come out in the wash.

Tech may go undefeated......they may drop the next 5. Like I said, it'll all come out in the wash.

Tech hadn't beat shit. Beat Nebraska in overtime, and gave up 31 in the process. Other than that, nobody even ranked. Reality will hit them in the balls shortly.

correction. USC being ranked above OU makes that poll a joke. USC loses to a pig of Oregon St. and OU loses to the number 1 team in the country. This week OU beats a good Kansas team by 14. USC beats a WSU team 69-0. I honestly think UNT could give WSU a good game. I dont think the coaches actually watch games.

Oh! A phoneg is ringin....

ugh, pay attention. COACHES, HARRIS, and all the little computer polls make up the BCS poll. The bcs is not a poll all by itself. so YES, the coaches does have a say in it.

now, the AP poll doesn't mean shit.

Who deserves it more? OU/USC with their losses? Until they lose I say leave them there. All this talk about who deserves to be where week 8/9 of the season is just as useless as week 0. All the fans need to quit bitching and worry about it after rivalry weekend/championship game weekend.

Everything will come out in the wash. I think the computers will be rough on USC. A Texas Bama MNC? Works for me.

Texas just has a LOT of work to get to that spot, before that's even a serious conversation.

Coaches and BCS always love them some USC. IF it wasn't for the Paterno "legend", Penn st. wouldn't be near as high, either.

I noticed Mizzou at #16. How many of the teams above them could they beat? I'm thinking several...

but they haven't beaten them. I say keep the teams without losses up at the top until they lose. PSU hasn't lost yet so leave them 3, are they better than a #4 OU team probably not but OU lost a game.

I'm not saying to move Mizzou...I couldn't care less. I'm just pointing out the strength of the Big 12, and how a 2-loss program could do quite well against the others above them.

Mizzou honestly hasn't looked like a great team the past two weeks. UT made them look foolish in the first half...are they better than some of the teams ranked ahead...probably, but there are a handful of teams below them that may give them fits too. Got to win your games
