10/6 Blogpoll Roundtable

Boi From Troy is hosting this weeks Blogpoll Rountable, here's my answers to this weeks battery of questions - this week is sort of a lull in the action, I don't see any huge national games outside of UCLA v. Cal, and even that isn't really anything but a primer to see which one gets to challenge USC in a few weeks.

1. Assuming that USC, Texas, Alabama and Virginia Tech all go undefeated at the end of the season, who deserves to play in the Rose Bowl for the BCS Title?

Alabama and VT aren't going undefeated, so it's not going to matter. Everyone wants to see USC and Texas, and that's the matchup we're going to get. The SEC and the ACC (and to an extent, the Big 11) have become "Eat Your Own Young" deep now, and it's going to be very difficult to escape undefeated in the next few years. I think we'll see more national champions from the Pac-10, Big XII and Big East (yoikes) in the next decade than anywhere else.

2. With most of the teams in conference play, which games have the greatest implication in defining the broader BCS picture (at larges, etc.) this year?


USC @ Notre Dame

Simply because it's USC and Notre Dame and they are both good football teams. If ND plays well and loses, they might still lock up a BCS bid by simply looking good.

Some SEC Game, Somehwere

Who knows, each week someone loses or someone wins and it's a different team of the moment. Right now, Alabama is the hot team and the Iron Bowl looks like the big game of the year in the SEC. Of course, it could also be UGA and UT, or UGA and UF, or ... LSU and Auburn? I can't figure out the SEC for the life of me - and neither can anyone else. But it's a given one of these games is going to be huge in the outcome of the BCS race.

ACC Championship game

VT and F$U are on a colision course for one of the most physically brutal games played in years. As a college football fan, that is going to be a heck of a game to watch if they both hold serve. Hide the women and children and be ready for an absolute brawl.

3. In addition to the BCS Title, the Associated Press, FWAA and several other groups award National Championship Trophies. What award should be given to the winner of the final College Football Blogpoll?

The Kitten Cup

In honor of the blogpoll founder and administrator, Brian

Bonus Football Question: Since I am going to be in London this weekend and the only “football” I will see will be the World Cup Qualifying…are there any Germany 2006 Qualifying games you’d watch if it weren’t College Football season?!?

England v. Austria, of course. Every American college football fan can relate to Sven Eriksson "Zooking" their World Cup chances. If Austria manages to win, the meltdown will be epic to experience in person.
