I’m not feeling the Texas Tech love. Yes, they’re undefeated, but they’ve played a weak schedule so far. That being said, they’ve got both Oklahoma schools and Baylor coming up, so they’ll have the opportunity to justify a place in the top ten.
Going back to FSU, it looks like the ‘Noles are cannibalizing some of the “anybody but Alabama at the top” support that Oregon was getting. Is that a harbinger of things to come in the last season of the BCS?
