The BCS standings for Week 12 were released on Sunday night and a top-five team was disrespected. That may sound funny, but Stanford shocked the world by not only beating previously 3rd-ranked Oregon, but by dominating the Ducks in a primetime game. After that performance, the Cardinal should be No. 3 in the rankings, ahead of Ohio State.
Now before all you delusional Buckeyes fans start crying, let’s take a look at your schedule. Oh, that’s right — you haven’t played anybody! And don’t you dare mention Northwestern. The Wildcats have lost five straight and couldn’t beat a Pop Warner team right now, yet they almost knocked off “The” OSU.
Stanford may have a loss this year, but Kevin Hogan and company have played five legitimately-ranked top 25 teams and beaten all of them. I promise you the Buckeyes would get molly-rocked against a team like Oregon, which is why it will be a crying shame if they get into the title game because it will be an Alabama–Notre Dame fiasco all over again.
Thank goodness we’re going to get rid of these blasted computers next year. The Cardinal would eat the Buckeyes for lunch in a head-to-head matchup and as if Florida State remains undefeated, we might just get the pleasure of seeing that in the Rose Bowl. Keep you fingers crossed, BCS haters.
