LIVEBLOGGING THE BCS STANDINGS -- WEEK ONE
4:41 p.m. Several shortcomings, as far as I see, but it's still too early to game out the BCS meltdown scenarios. Unless an undefeated West Virginia gets snubbed for a one-loss Auburn. It might or might not be justified, but all hades will break lose. More later. END LIVEBLOGGING.
4:39 p.m. Apparently, the BCS thinks West Virginia can beat Florida. Interesting. I also just noticed the BCS trophy in the middle of the set and realized that's as close as Barry Alvarez has every been to the NC trophy.
4:38 p.m. It's tough to see how all teams are going to have a loss at the end of the season. BTW, way to be bold choosing Ohio State and USC, Terry.
4:37 p.m. Pitt is a tough team? So says Barry Alvarez.
4:35 p.m. Auburn is No. 4? That's kind of a surprise. Maybe the Tigers aren't delusional to talk about a shot at the NC game...
4:34 p.m. USC No. 2, Michigan No. 3. No news. BCS is stupid. No news.
4:33 p.m. Barry Alvarez is their college analyst? There's no bias there. "Is Wisconsin underrated, atheltic director of Wisconsin?" "Absolutely."
4:29 p.m. As the Fox team prattles, a warning that I'm only going to spend a little time griping on here when Southern Cal is announced as the "No. 2 team in the nation" because I'm going to post a more detailed critique later.
4:25 p.m. Ah, another excuse for Fox to run their bizarre BCS commercial, as if the championship game -- in Arizona, no less -- is heaven, and college teams are a group of warring religious groups. Who knew that the road to the Music City Bowl is paved with good intentions?
4:23 p.m. Trying something new -- live blogging the BCS standings as they are unveiled during the Fox NFL post-game show. Not sure why the NFL guys are doing BCS standings; they're a little bit out of their league if you ask me. But it is what it is.
