Poll Watch - Week 10 / Boise State Ranked #6 In All Polls

Boise State managed to do something this week, that some other teams were unable to do; Win. But, according the the national media, they did not do so in a "convincing manor". When a win is a win only to the "AQ" teams, Boise State is held to a much higher standard. But was there not "style" in this game? Kellen Moore threw for three touchdowns and 354 yards, while the team managed to score 45 points. Credit should be given to La Tech for making this a game, but why take away from what the team accomplished? The simple fact is, Boise State is undefeated, something that Iowa wishes that they can say this morning.

                                                                      

Well it was another crazy weekend of College Football, but at this point in the season have we come to expect anything less? Florida beats Vanderbilt, but was it a "blowout"? Does it have to be? What does Florida care about style points anyway? They still have some left over from last year. Texas's victory looks more like a "blowout" even though they only scored 8 more points than Florida did, while both teams defenses held the other team to just a field goal. Alabama managed to put LSU away in the 4th quarter keeping their dreams alive. A goal without a plan is only a wish. And Iowa wished that they had a plan to score points in more than just the first quarter. Close wins don't matter when you are a BCS "AQ" team. And no team is more grateful for that today than Cincinnati! TCU is adding up their style points like a kid at the prize counter of Chuck E Cheese's (where a kid can be a kid), hoping they have enough to get that really cool BCS game. When are we going to hear the 4 Letters start talking about TCU's National Championship chances? Mean while Boise State keeps winning the games that are on their schedule while most of the media types are conjuring up things to say that will make them look bad. They have to tread lightly now though, because whatever they say to discredit Boise State will inevitably bring down their precious USC, and they don't want that to happen! For that same reason, there is not much that we Bronco fans can say about Oregon. Let's just say, they lost to a conference opponent and leave it at that. At least we don't have to hear anymore of the "Should Oregon Jump Boise State" debating! The debate now will be "Should USC be ranked ahead of Oregon"? Georgia Tech wins an OT squeaker, but that's ok, they're AQ, close wins don't effect them. Anyone else think we'll see tOhio State jump into the top 10 after beating Penn State?  For all of you Gamecasters who thought that Tulsa won check this out! And I can't decide what is better, Oklahoma only scoring 3 points in their loss or Jimmy Clausen getting beat again and not being able to go to a BCS game... It's a tossup.

Meanwhile in the WAC...

Hawaii remembers how to score points, much to the chagrin of the vacationing Utah State Aggies. With the way that they played against Fresno State last week, I know I was expecting them to win. Too much poi I suppose. On the mainland, in a more domey environment, Akey's Army was held scoreless in the Battle For The First Half, but after Brigadier General Stache's half-time pep talk the Platoon came back with a "lost-the-battle, win-the-war" mentality and came within ten points of victory. Was this a preview of what next week will be like? Possibly, except for both halves of the game for the Vandals will look the same as the first half did this week for them. New Mexico State decided to take this week off in order to spend more time in counseling, with the hope that they can turn their season around. Something makes me think that that will do them no good. One spot of sunshine on their darkened day, with the beat down they took at tOhio State last week, they will be able to afford to buy food for the team in the off season! We will all have to wait until later tonight to see if San Jose State has what it takes to keep Bean Pole and Crew from tearing up the turf in their home stadium. For some reason, I just don't see that happening.

On to the polls!
