According the NCAA's strength of schedule #5 Boise State should actually be at #3 just behind #1 LSU and #4 Oklahoma state. The Tigers SOS is 11th, while the Cowboys are T-28th, and the Broncos are 33rd. #2 Alabama and #3 Oklahoma, on the other hand are 50th and 36th, respectively. Boise State has been more impressive against its opponents than the Tide and the Sooners have been, so why are they ranked above us? Oh, yeah, that's right. Tradition and elitism. Sorry, I forgot.
Oh, by the way, some commentators keep on insisting that #6 Wisconsin and #8 Stanford should be above the Broncos, even though their SOS are T-97th and T-95th, respectively. At least the BCS got right in that respect. We are better than both the Weasels and the Tree. Now if only the whole system can get their heads out of their collective elitist butts and do right by us I'd be happy
