    Boise State should be ranked above USC. No losses, they trounced Oregon State and then beat Oklahoma. They deserve better than they are getting. These polls are just a joke.

    Re: The Official 2006 College Football thread

    A couple of glaring things to me from those final polls. Boise State should have finished number two. Ohio State should have been lower (although I think the Coaches were obligated to vote them number two according to BCS rules) and what about Georgia? the beat Virginia Tech and what respect did that get them? 23 in one poll and not even in the other one. What?!

    How cool would it be if the BCS ended up like this (with the other bowls still giving the rest of the nation an extra meaningless exhibition, as bowls were originally intended to do), when dealing with the BCS top eight:

    January 1:
    Rose Bowl - #1 Ohio State v. #8 Boise State
    Fiesta Bowl - #4 LSU v. #5 USC
    Orange Bowl - #2 Florida v. #7 Wisconsin
    Sugar Bowl - #3 Michigan v. #6 Louisville

    The next Saturday at least 6 days later (this year, January 13) The Football Final Four at a bowl location(s) rotating each year:

    3:30 p.m. EST at the Orange Bowl - Florida v. Michigan or Louisville
    7:00 p.m. EST at the Rose Bowl - Ohio State v. LSU or USC

    The following Saturday (this year January 20) - The National Championship

    8:00 p.m. EST at the Sugar Bowl - Florida v. USC or LSU

    The next season, the Sugar Bowl, having hosted the prior national title, gets no Final Four games. The Rose Bowl gets the title, with the Fiesta Bowl and Orange Bowl getting semis. In 2009, the Rose Bowl gets no extras and the Orange Bowl hosts the title with semis at the Fiesta Bowl and Sugar Bowl. Conference ties could still be loosely maintained. The Rose Bowl could take the game with the highest ranked Big 10 or Pac 10 team. If still available, the Fiesta could get the highest ranked Big 12 team, etc.

    The season would be about one week longer for 2 teams and about 2 weeks longer for 2 more teams. The major bowls would all be must-see games and would all be relevant and sought-after bids. Rematches? Who cares. If Ohio State and Michigan play, who cares that it's a rematch? TV money would be insane. LSU v. Florida? That would kick butt. And the champion who emerged would be an undisputed national champion. The final AP poll would be no more relevant than the last regular season basketball poll.

    What wouldn't be great about all that?

    While I don't quite agree with that statement, Boise State was certainly the biggest overachiever of 2006, based upon the original AP poll. Here's how the top ten finished:

    1. Ohio State finished #2 (12-1, lost BCS Championship Game)
    2. Notre Dame finished #17 (10-3, lost Sugar Bowl)
    3. Texas finished #13 (10-3, won Alamo Bowl)
    4. Auburn finished #9 (11-2, won Cotton Bowl)
    5. West Virginia finished #10 (11-2, won Gator Bowl)
    6. USC finished #4 (11-2, won Rose Bowl)
    7. Florida finished #1 (13-1, won BCS Championship Game)
    8. LSU finished #3 (11-2, won Sugar Bowl)
    9. Cal finished #14 (10-3, won Holiday Bowl)
    10. Oklahoma finished #11 (11-3, lost Fiesta Bowl)

    Best achievement:

    UR. Boise State finished #5 (13-0, won Fiesta Bowl)
    UR. Wisconsin finished #7 (12-1, won Capital One Bowl)

    Re: The Official 2006 College Football thread

    Boise State plays in a smaller conference, yet the competition in the conference is about equal, so to finish your conference undefeated is quite an achievement. There was only one other undefeated team in the country. Boise St also went and played two out of conference games and trounced Oregon State which beat the PAC 10 Champion USC (which also lost to an unranked UCLA). Then they beat the Big 12 Champion. They they may not deserve to be placed second, but they do deserve to be above USC and any other 2 loss team.

    These polls are outdated, especially the coaches poll when the coaches do not even watch the games. Until we have a true playoff, or at least a plus one scenario, we will never truly have national champion, just some made for TV version that we have now.

    Re: The Official 2006 College Football thread

    I want some evening out before we have a playoff. All the BCS conferences should have the same amount of teams or at least an even number no less than 10 teams so that there can be two divisions and a Conference Championship game. It's not fair for the Pac 10 or the Big Ten to not have a championsip game, if the ACC, SEC, and Big XII does. Another thing to consider is that the MAC may not be around much longer. at least in its current state with several schools on the edge of not meeting attendence requirements and such (plus I think several of the schools would be better suited in the lower division)

    here's is what I am proposing (which will never happen because tradition will be obliterated and this plan would cost a few independents money).

    1. Notre Dame joins the Big Ten
    2. Boise State and Utah join the Pac 10
    3. Army and Navy join the Big East
    3. Hawaii, Nevada, Fresno State, & New Mexico State join the Mountain West, with the remaining WAC teams joining the Sun Belt)

    Now you already have the makings of a Playoff system with the Conference championships alone on the first weekend of December when the SEC, ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big XII, Pac 10, Mountain West, and Conference USA championship games are held. You take the winners, seed 1-8 (don't even have the championship games and take the 16 teams seed them, and play it out.)

    Ifor one would keep the championship games, the ake the usual break, allowing the lower divisions to have their playoffs to give them the benefit of TV time and the dollars that result, the use the higher bowls to do the 8 team playoff and cycle through each year.

    I agree with you of putting all those teams in those conferences.
