SI's Tony Pauline sees McClellin going in the middle rounds as of right now.
Glad to see "Give the Mountain West a BCS berth" as one of the options. Also nice to start to see some questioning of the whole 16 team super conference model that everyone has been running with.
Mandel also points out the fact that Oregon has continued to disappoint on the big stage (LSU, Auburn, Ohio State) while Boise State has continued to thrive. Also, you can throw in that 2-0 record against the Ducks.

But as she rightly points out, Boise State's season now rides on the hope that Georgia doesn't take. Even though, she points out, is not fair at all.
Well apparently that is allowed if the players are on opposite sides of the ball. Well, Smith has played offense in the past and can't now because of this. And reports are that Crowell won't give it up.
Sure makes all these realignment scenarios look pretty crazy. Can we just drop the geographical reference in conference names?
