Last week's AP survey of the Top 25 polls suggests that now we can identify 17 of the top 25 teams that no longer match the pursuit of the BCS national championship game. They all have 2 or more casualties. They are:
Oregon, Oklahoma, Virginia, Texas Tech, South California, Texas, Florida, Clemson, Virginia, Boston College, Tennessee, Illinois, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan, Wisconsin and Connecticut.
So my message is to you. Get it and go.
Recent losses were in dire straits and reduced to Oregon Ducks 2nd category and Oklahoma City Sooners No. 3.
The Ducks not only lost his second loss in Arizona, on 34-24, but also lost his Heisman Trophy and Superior Hall Dennis Dikhon in the first quarter of the ACL, losing his left knee. Dixons was the crime of Orgonia without showing it.
The Sooners took the second loss at Texas Tech 34-27, leaving them out to look at the BCS title. Like Oregon, Sooners has lost its quarter-end to Sem Bradford in the first quarter with an obvious shock.
Eight teams are now hard to ignore. Everyone has only 1 loss, except Kansas City and Hawaii, which are invincible.
Everyone remains in the hunt as they continue to win, as the seasonal winds are low or they are inactive this week as the 9th in the Arizona state (9-1).
Louisiana (10-1), who took the 1st place, took advantage of the 98-odd return and two-scattered games to hold Mississippi 41-24 on the goal line. Mississippi is now 0-7 in the SEC.
Kansas City, who took the 4th place, hosted Iowa State and cyclones easily defeated 45-7.
The 5th West Virginia region (9-1) toured the 21st class Cincinnati and gave the Bearcats the third loss, 28-23, demonstrating this week's 25th position in the Connecticut (9-2) for the Greater East title and the BCS Cup.
Connecticut gets my candidacy as a team of 9-2, which keeps track of this season with the least click. The Huskies quietly and effectively beat the South Florida, Rutgers and Cincinnati, all of them have been registered and have received more notice. South Florida ranked second, Rugters10th and Cincinnati at the 15th place.
Missouri, which ranks No. 6 on 10-1, left Kansas State and won the Wildcats 49-32. Missouri freshman Jeremy McLean (speeds up) has set a record for fresh season fresh season NCAA records of 252 all-round yards to regain 99 gorges for the account and catching 2 TD lanes, giving it 2,201 of the most common yards away.
This week # 6 Missouri is heading for a large 12 demonstration of huge proportions in Kansas State. Kansas is 7-0, and Missouri at 6-1 on 12th.
The 7th place in Ohio (11-1) last week was displeased with the 14th victory of the state of Illinois, 23rd in Michigan, capturing the Grand Slam. The Ohio state season is over. The Buckeyes will be sitting and waiting and seeing their destiny at BCS. Look at them in Rose Bowl, the worst.
Jim Tresel became the first coach of the Ohio state, seven years later, six times to Michigan. His Buckeyes captured their first straight line for the Big 10 titles for 50 years.
The 13th place in Hawaii (10-0) has left Nevada and is lucky with 28-26 victories. The Warriors led the 19th century on the 10th, but Wolfpack 16-9 went out in the second half.
The Hawaiian Islands are over 42-35 in San Hose, and 37- 30 years in Fresno. The Warriors, who scored a lot of points (45+), get their first true test this season this week when they host No. 17 in Boise State. Hawaiian or Boise's victory could have led them to the BCS Cup, especially if a team loses them before.
Boise's state warmed Hawaii, destroying Idaho 58-14. The Broncos victory was not a big deal, as Idaho is in the season of 1-10 and out of the deficit.
So there is a strong 6-Louis, Kansas, West Virginia, Missouri, Ohio and Arizona, and not so powerful 2-Hawaii and Boise state.
Sunday night (11-18-07) AP showed LSU 1st, Kansas 2, Missouri 3th, West Virginia 4th, Ohio 5th, Arizona 7th, Hawaii 14th and Boise Province 17th.
On Monday (11-19-07) BCS's new standings showed LSU 1, 2nd Kansas City, 3rd in West Virginia, 4th in Missouri, Ohio, 5th in Arizona State horizontally,
There is a guided escort that two out of 8 teams involved in BCS hunting are losing this week's Kansas-Missouri clash and another location in Hawaii and Boise. It should help in the morning to raise the fog.
