Oregon jumps ahead of Boise State in the rankings…what!?

Posted: October 4, 2010 in Uncategorized

Here we go again. We are only five weeks into the college football season, and Boise State has already gotten screwed. After defeating New Mexico State 59-0 (Yes, you read that right), the Boise State Broncos dropped from #3 to #4 in the AP and USA Today Top 25.

Boise was jumped by the Oregon Ducks, who handily defeated the previously ranked #9 Stanford Cardinal in a Pac-10 battle, 52-31.

Notice how I said Pac-10. One of the most recognizable conferences in college sports. Unfortunately for Boise State, they are not a member of this conference. And I believe that because of this, they will continue to be disrespected by poll voters.

How does a team who is ranked #3 drop down a spot after winning 59-0. What more can they do? Do they have to win 100-0? They absolutely destroyed a conference foe, and they were rewarded by being dropped further away from their National Championship dreams.

Boise State, a part of the Western Athletic Conference, has been one of many schools over the past decade to get screwed over by the infamous BCS Bowl Game system of NCAA Football. Now ranked #4, Boise now has to hope for two of the top 3 teams to lose for them to have a chance at the National Championship.

This dilemma brings forth the same question that has been asked throughout college football for the past few years. When are they going to install a playoff system that gives a fair chance to the small schools? If there are multiple teams who are undefeated at the end of the year, a playoff system is the only way to determine a true champion.

There is one thing I know for sure. If Boise State finishes undefeated and once again does not get a shot for the National Championship, be ready to hear the sports world erupt and bash the BCS system, AGAIN.

I guess we will just have to wait and see.

These Boise State fans won't be so excited if the Broncos don't get a shot at the National Championship

    This is serious stuff. I’m listening. I officially care about college football, but when are you going to do a piece on the LFL? I’ll be your field reporter for the Oct 22 game between SD Seduction v. Seattle. Cha-ching!
