Blogpoll Roundtable

New, 4 comments

This week it is being hosted over at All Things Long Horns.  Let's get right to them:

1. What would it take for you to vote someone other than USC #1 in the poll? If you already are, what would it take for USC to regain the top spot on your ballot?
Well in our weekly blogpoll discussions before submitting our ballot, we had been voting Texas over the SuCsters because we thought Texas was looking quiet impressive.  However, after last weekend, we didn't see how we couldn't put SuC at no. 1.  I don't believe Longhorns would be able to beat the Irish out in South Bend.  However, I think they could be back at no. 1 because  they should beat those cheaters if they were matched up at the Rose Bowl.

2. Which of the undefeateds is most likely to remain so? Who is least likely?
My head tells me it will be Texas who will most likely remain undefeated, but my heart of course says UCLA. Alabama or Texas Tech will not stay undefeated, and SuC may even lose to Cal up over at the Strawberry Canyon.

3. If you were running the BCS system, would you let the computer rankings factor in margin of victory? Why or why not?
First of all I despise the BCS.  I am not a big believer in factoring in margin of victory.  Lot of times good teams run up the scores in top heavy conferences (like the SEC and the Big-12), which if considered heavily would create havoc in the system.  I don't really care all that much if someone beat up on shitty football teams like Temple or Rice, and have that factored in their favor.  What's the point in that?  But I would be interested in hearing feedback from others on this question. It merits lot more thinking out loud. O, A and the rest please fire away.
