What are you complaining about? Your team still has a shot to back their way into the BCSMNCG.

This has nothing to do with Alabama. Nothing at all.

Even if OSU goes undefeated, it'd be a shame if they played for a national championship. I know you hate Alabama, and you don't care that we'll end up with 5 ranked and 3 top 10 on our schedule - but I'm sure you'd feel a team playing no ranked teams is more deserving...

Teams like Louisville being ranked highly with one top 50 on their schedule ONE, is bad for college football.

I agree with you on Louisville. They're not a top 10 team.

I think most voters would put an undefeated Ohio State team in the BCS NC game over a potential 1 loss Alabama team regardless of schedules. Going undefeated in a major conference is not easy.
That may be true on Ohio State.  I don't understand what the fascination is with them.  They play nobody, they have one of (if not the most) colossally overrated coach over the last 20 years.  The MEDIA (for whatever reason) made Urban Meyer into this end all be all of coaching and I just don't get it.    He's done absolutely NOTHING as a head coach to make me think of him in terms of one of the best.  The common denominator with him is EVERY stop he's made he has won with someone else's players.   The only place he stayed for any length of time (Florida) and he crippled that program.   He has done absolutely NOTHING to prove he can build and sustain a program.  All he can do is win with what is already in place.  When its up to him to put it together, he FAILS and comes up with a fake health issue to generate sympathy for leaving the program. Eventually it will happen to OSU and maybe people will wake up to the fraud that Meyer really is.

It has everything to do with Alabama considering you ARE an Alabama fan and this WAS your opening post....

In any of our 3 national championship seasons, how many of those included us playing 0 ranked teams? If Alabama played 0 ranked teams and struggled mightily against the two teams we played with a pulse, I would say absolutely no way do we deserve playing for a title.

This is spot on. I don't get why everyone is so fascinated with Ohio St. The sad thing is that if they weren't on probation last year it would have been OSU and ND for the title: two of the most overrated teams in history.

Voters are lazy, they only care about wins. If LSU beats Alabama and wins out - they don't have a shot at the title if Oregon and OSU go undefeated. And that's pitiful because LSU would be a double digit favorite over Ohio St....buuuuuuut they have that one loss, to a team that would cream Ohio St - and we just can't vote a BETTER team in over a team with an undefeated record. Even if they did beat a bunch of teams who would have been blown off the mat against any of the top half int he SEC.

NO ... Voters do not only care about wins.

Otherwise for instance u@T would  have never gone on after losing to LSU, not after not winning one in head to head (the ultimate not win).  And they certainly didn't care only about wins, if the criteria was not winning your championship game.  Much less even earning the right to win there.  After all Oklahoma,  Stanford, and  Boise State had THE VERY SAME  NUMBER of WINS as the bad-loosers, each and everyone (you too) was 11-1.  And Oregon, Wisconsin, Va Tech all had the same number of actual wins as your team (11-2), they just happened to have dropped one more having played an extra game/opponent along the way.  So certainly - evidently - something besides merely wins determined who went the big game.  And finally if it was all about the wins, poor ole Huston got royally screwed over after being a 12-1.  If it's wins only then 12 trumps 11, or have we ran out of  fingers.   If you don't believe it was all about their press, go ask one of those other 11-1 season teams.... (we here know the answer 1st hand already, and we had no losses).  

Isn't your very premises nothing but double standard?  In your example  tOSU get's slighted because they cheated and rightfully so, they truly deserved not going last year .   While the cheaters from this year (your very own acknowledgement elsewhere)  merits no such similar standard.  Surely you see the similarities, another media darling get's undue favorable press and whisked away to glory (again we know this story).  Only difference this time... the over glorified coach and team in red is not some university from Tuscaloosa.

Sorry.... but no sympathy here!

3 out of 4 just chaps your hide doesn't it?

Why are you making this (and every other thread in the rivals area) about Alabama? Is it impossible for you to allow a single thread to go on where other teams are discussed?

You are aware that there other other teams in the universe besides Alabama, correct? Your obsession is unbecoming. Maybe let one of these threads go on once in a while without pissing all over it. This area would be a much nicer place to be.

Many of us constantly get the threads back on topic after some (there's only a few) overly butthurt person comes in and makes some crybaby comments about Bama. And every time the threads get back on track, here comes another, taking a big ol dump on the thread to say the same crap that's been said in the last 159 threads. You guys get all mad at me, but if you'd notice, I haven't been talking much about Alabama here lately - until after someone takes a fresh dump.

Conveniently leaves out... (removes) .. all of his Alabama references in my simple reply to his quote.   Such as 3 out of 4... .  and  if Alabama played zero ranked teams...

Actually we've had  civil discussion before, of course it's a rarity given your often time hostile nature.   Nor was  probation interjected or bama  entered in this thread before you.  Just as is  normally the case you change topic or veer off into misdirection,  Or another favorite to ignore a damning post by non-stop rebuttal of others... until it pages back and well hidden.  Go on broken record - go on.

The first thing I quoted that was in your quote was in response to someone else brining up Alabama. Then you went on some ridiculous tirade about Alabama when I was having a discussion about Ohio St and Louisville.

This entire tread was based on teams who have a shot at the title while not playing any ranked teams. How you see that as an open window to discuss Alabama, I'll never know. Alabama usually plays at LEAST 2 top 10 teams and 4-5 ranked teams overall. You just needed to get your anti-bama satisfaction in, so you decided to derail the thread into some anti-Bama flame war.

I just don't understand why blowing out awful or average teams always impresses people.

Don't get me wrong. I think Oregon is a fantastic program. An elite team. But last year they didn't play a team finishing in the top 25 until mid novemeber. And they lost to them. And because of the Rose Bowl conference tie in, they always play average Big Televen teams in the bowl game.

They played LSU, beat down. They played Auburn, couldn't score. Played Stanford (the only physical team they played all year) and scored 14 points.

This year? They may be #1. That game against Washington was pretty impressive. Washington is a quality team. I think Washington is better than Stanford. (I know they lost to them). But I hate that Oregon got UVA and Tennessee out of conference.
