BCS Rhymes With Mess

Stewart Mandel has a reasonably good look at the current BCS picture, also known as the Great Clusterfuck of 2007.

So long, Oklahoma. Welcome back, West Virginia.In the latest wrinkle to this year's ever-changing national title race, the 9-1 Mountaineers not only got a much-needed road win at Cincinnati on Saturday night but benefited greatly from the Sooners' 34-27 loss at Texas Tech. Now, West Virginia, which figures to move up to No. 4 in the new BCS Standings following its 28-23 win at Cincinnati, needs those same Sooners to turn around and win the Big 12 championship.


Obviously, the Oklahoma loss was just about the best we could have hoped for on Saturday. Assuming Sooner QB Sam Bradford is OK and they go on to beat Oklahoma State next weekend, Oklahoma should be favored against either Missouri or Kansas. That game will be played in San Antonio, meaning Oklahoma will have a decided home-field advantage (say, as opposed to the 2006 edition which was held in Kansas City).

That just gets us started. Though there shouldn't be any surprises, we'll back back later this evening with a full recap of both the game and the newly released BCS standings.
