BCS Would Have Alabama Ranked Fifth If The Rankings Came Out Today
Well, here’s a shock: According to Yahoo!’s Pat Forde, the BCS would have Alabama ranked fifth if the rankings came out today. Here is an excerpt from Forde’s post:
“Despite the overwhelming belief among human voters that Alabama is the best team in America and Oregon is No. 2, the computers aren’t buying it. At least not yet. The Dash looked at five of the six rankings that are used by the BCS – Wolfe doesn’t release its first public rankings until Sunday – and four different teams are ranked No. 1: Alabama (Sagarin), Florida (Anderson & Hester), Oregon (Billingsley) and Notre Dame (Colley and Massey).”
That means Florida and Notre Dame are ranked No. 1 in more polls than Alabama. Forde’s calculation have those two squads ranked first and second, followed by South Carolina, West Virginia and, finally, ‘Bama. I don’t know about you, but personally I hope nothing changes. Let the drama begin!
