    WHy does USC deserve it over LSU? They are ranked below LSU. LSU beat a higher ranked team today. ANd they are both conference champs. I agree, I think you should win your conference to get in to the championship game. But I cant fathom at all how you can possibly argue VT over LSU. USC you can argue, but I cant see how in the world they will jump LSU when LSU beat a higher ranked team today, and was ranked higher going into the day.


    And Im not arguing Georgia. Im just pointing out that Nebraska has been in the title game without winning their conference, so it isnt mandatory to win your conference.

    They beat a higher ranked team than USC or VT. USC beat a team that was beaten by Utah and Notre dame. Since LSU was ranked higher, and beat a higher ranked team, how could you justify USC jumping them?

    I think we're leaving Oklahoma out of this too. I mean, they DID just beat the number one team in the country to win their conference championship. I don't know if it was enough to get them back into the title picture, but we shall see tomorrow. And, by the way, Boston College was ranked 3 spots ahead of Tennessee in the polls. So, LSU didn't beat a higher ranked team than VT.

    I dont disagree, Oklahoma has a case. But they were a favorite over the top ranked team, so I dont think most are impressed by this win. But, 2 losses, conference champ, so they still have an argument.

    I was talking about LSU beating a higher ranked team than USC. They beat VT by 40, so thats all I need to think LSU deserves it over them.

    :yes:

    I hope all the controversy leads to it. Otherwise, they need to toss the term "National Champion" out the window.

    This season has been so crazy that no one can say for sure who the best team in the country is. There's a lot of balance out there now. After the National Championship game, nobodies still going to know without a doubt who the best team is this year. Only a playoff system could give you the answer. We don't have it, and I'm tired of all the talk about it.
    The games were great entertainment, and I'm going to enjoy them for what they are...
