In case you missed it…

If you’re like me about ten minutes of Bonds coverage and 2 minutes of A-Rod news is about all you can take. So after the indictment and contract news yesterday, you may have turned your tv off, or at least your sports radar down to keep your sanity. What you might have missed was an Oregon upset at the hands of Arizona. That’s right, #2 went down again. Yeah, star QB Dixon was injured. But regardless the Ducks lost to a 4-6 team. Thanks for playing Ducks, pick up your consolation prize at the door.

Do I think the Buckeyes have a shot at climbing into one of the top 2 spots? Probably not. I think that LSU would have to lose for that to happen. Kansas and Missouri play each other, with the winner likely facing Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship. One of those teams will make it to the BCS Championship. West Virginia is ahead of the Buckeyes, but plays Cincinnati, UConn and Pitt. Certainly the Bearcats or the Huskies have a shot at upending the Mountaineers. If West Virginia runs the table they would get in before the Buckeyes easily. Arizona State is one spot behind OSU in the BCS rankings, and plays USC and Arizona. Both are home games. Should they beat USC look for them to leapfrog Ohio State in the polls.

So that means LSU would have to lose another game, West Virginia would have to lose to Cincy or UConn, Arizona State would need to lose one of its remaining games, and the Big 12 games simply need to play themselves out.

Possible? Sure anything’s possible, especially this year. But realistic? Probably not. Let’s enjoy this game Saturday and look forward to the Rose Bowl. If the perfect storm comes along, then we’ll talk about something better.

  1. I believe LSU will lose another game and so will ASU. Not so sure about WVU.

    Unfortunately, although I will be cheering hard, I think OSU goes down tomorrow, so I don’t think it’ll matter.
