    TCU is my favorite college team. (then the Longhorns)

    It sucks this season. They beat a ranked team and then they win 60something to 7, but they don't play any ranked teams from here on out. (I believe) This just screws any chance they have for a chance at a championship.

    BCS rankings should define teams schedules. If you are ranking, your schedule should be loaded with ranked games. (besides the required divisional games)

    True but one thing in TCU favor is they are raniked 4th in the nation and very likely to run the table keeping them in the BCS running.

    They play at Utah on November 6th. Currently Utah is ranked 14th, but who knows where they will be ranked come November.

    I don't care that they played a ranked Oregon State. Too much emphasis is placed on what a team is ranked at the time when they play especially at the beginning of the season. The true measure is what is that opponents ranking at the end of the regular season. Now if Oregon State goes on to have a good season and is ranked at the end of the year, it will mean something. If the Beavers go out and lose 5 more games, the Horned Frog victory over them won't mean squat.

    I did not think BCS standing even started until after the 3rd week of the season. Still being ranked 5th keeps them in the BCS running

    Absolutely. I think that they will have a hard time holding that position, if all the teams around them continue to win but honestly, I think we're going to see teams lose this year. Nobody I can point to right now and say to myself, "They have no weakness".

    They don't come out until October 17. TCU is ranked #5 in the coaches poll, which is one part of the BCS rankings.

    In the FCS(Division 1-AA) coaches poll, James Madison is ranked #3 behind Villanova(2) and Appalachian St(1). Shows how little the coaches in 1-AA think of VaTech. Not that it matters too much since 1-AA has a playoff system.

    Agree. Bama and OSU thus far at least looks like #1 teams as for the others man it is hard to tell at this stage. I think that is what will make this a very entertaining college season.

    Just like last year. It was a slaughter at the top. All those ranked teams were getting knocked off.

    The Big XII-II really needs to pick up TCU.

    Not saying TCU is bad but I don't think Texas or OU would have that much of a problem with TCU ;)

    I agree, I think it would be a good fit and makes the Big 12 stronger. As for UT and OU not wanting it, I don't buy that for a second playing in a strong conference gives more clout to the conference and helps in the rankings

    TCU had a better team the last two years than they have this year. So, this year you may be right. ;)
