NCAA question: Now that Alabama has a loss, who should be the No. 1 team in the polls? Which teams have the best chance of making it to the BCS Championship?Humorously, the Bammie contingent in al.com's infamously-ridiculous comments area appears to have discovered my posts in a big way. I always get a kick out of seeing dozens and dozens of furious and subliterate responses regarding a team that fan base likes to claim is "irrelevant" and "not our biggest rival anyway."
If I had an AP vote, Oregon would get it this week. They've been the most consistent team against good competition. Ohio State hasn't played anybody except a very suspect Miami, but the Big Televen, as usual, is as soft as pudding, and it's unlikely that they'll lose in the regular season. Given the love affair that the media has with TOSU and the Big Televen in general, they're most likely going to make it to the BCS final--and when they get there, of course, they're going to be exposed. Again.
