So we are #3 in the BCS again. We are still getting no love. 3 analysts with accents that make them sound like they should be broadcasting a Nascar race say that PSU isn't even as good as the big 1 loss teams. Almost nobody giving us the credit we deserve. What does it all mean?
It means that we need to take care of business and it will all come out in the wash. If we should win our last 3 games, against 3 teams that will be gunning for us like its their biggest game this year, we will be in the National Championship. I feel very confident saying that. Alabama has an easy road to the SEC Championship game, but a hungry Gator team awaits them, and I just can't see the Tide pulling out a victory. Texas Tech has a double whammy, with Oklahoma St and a trip to Norman. If either team finishes undefeated, it will be an accomplishment. If both go unblemished, well then, uh.....we're screwed.
As for the 1 loss teams, I just can't see any of them jumping us in the final poll. We'll be ahead in the human polls, and combined with our better record, that should be enough to keep us ahead in the BCS. Afterall, we're not Utah.
These next few weeks are going to be frustrating as hell, playing the guessing game as to whether we will end up in the top 2 or not. All I can say is lets enjoy this time and the excitement generated by a possible run to the National Championship!
