    That looks about right. I wish Boise was at least 2, but it won't happen.

    There is only one undefeated major college college football team.
    BOISE STATE defeated Oregon State 42-14 who beat USC
    and you rank the Trojans ahead of the Broncos?

    Florida had their best performance of the season Monday night
    and the Buckeyes didn't answer the bell.

    Is it a Heisman Trophy jinx?

    Okay, let's be realistic. The only game we'll remember clearly a year from now is the Boise State game. And you all know which Boise State game I mean. They had a perfect season and played and won the most exciting college football game of the year, maybe the most exciting college football game ever. The 2006 college football season belongs to Boise State. And the Number 1 ranking should also belong to Boise State. Boise State is the team that defined the best of the 2006 college football season.

    After the Florida stomping of over-rated Ohio State, FOX showed highlights of the Boise State game.

    LOL! They should have showed them during the game, or maybe instead of the game. Did you realize that Urban Meyer is an OSU grad?

    I'd rather live with the fantasy that Boise State deserves to be in such a game.

    If Boise State is better than USC because BSU beat OSU who beat USC, then is Washington State also better than USC for beating OSU, despite losing to USC? Is University of Washington also better than USC for beating WSU who beat OSU who beat USC, even though Washington lost to USC?

    And what can we say about UCLA beating USC, when they lost to Washington, Washington State, and Florida State?

    Boise State was impressive, but in a bowl game USC would take them apart in a way that makes Ohio State look good. USC often falters in Pac-10 games for two reasons:

    1. All pac-10 teams are good.
    2. USC thinks it is too good for the second toughest conference in the country.

    Ironic that you're making the same statements about a USC-Boise State matchup that the Big Ten supporters made about a OSU-Boise State matchup.

    USC lost two games; there's no way they earned being rated higher than Boise State. And the way OSU was demolished by Florida, it's a travesty that they hung on to #2.

    Wulebgr, what college football team in 2006 season most exceeded expections? Shouldn't the #1 team be that team? The team that really did have the best season. And isn't that team Boise State?
