Every week, the BCS tinkers and teeters its rankings by the slightest… even if nothing’s happened, you want to make sure the folks at home are paying attention, right?
This week’s news: despite running their record to 7-0 and slamming Arizona State in the process, the Oregon Ducks have dropped from No. 3 to No. 4, which is surely setting Eugene on fire since the Ducks inexplicably dropped from No. 2 to No. 3 only a week earlier.
Mo’ money, mo’ problems. Right?
Bear Bryant. Capital: Montgomery. Crimson Tide (commence Menses jokes). Defence. And, offence. Studs. Hicks. Numbers on helmets, not a logo. (They do have a logo, though.) (It’s just a cursive ‘A’.) Defending national champions. Nick Saban.
Tim Tebow. Gatos. Gatorade. Vintage cool. Orange and Blue. March Madness circa 2005. And, 2006. 1970’s cool. The surprise contender. National champions in 2006. And, 2008.
3. Kansas State
5. Notre Dame
Rudy. Joe Montana. Indiana.
Shaw. JaMarcus Russell. National champions in 2003 and 2007. Purple and Gold. Tigers. (Rawr.) Les Miles. Operator, won’t put me on through, I gotta send me love down to Baton Rouge?
7. Oregon State
Beavers. Little brothers to No. 4. Hey, I don’t get no respect?
Oh, what a beautiful morning. Wannabe Alabama jersey. Sam Bradford. Tulsa is the Paris of Oklahoma.
Boom. Reggie Bush. Matt Leinart? Matt Barkley! Oh, Matt Barkley. Once-upon-a-time Heisman. Once-upon-a-time dominance. Pete Carroll. Damn you, Pete Carroll.
Ryan Seacrest went there. Bulldogs.
11. Mississippi State
Is there a chance?
12. Florida State
Seminoles. Deion Sanders. Little brother to No. 2 (right now). Spoiler role.

“We could have had it all.” – Adele
14. Texas Tech
The best team in Texas. Like, how?
Can a team from Jersey actually go undefeated? Big East.
So cool. Cardinals. Rick Pitino, but that’s a different sport.
Hit the books, Preppy. (They think they’re cooler than the real Ivy Leaguers.)
An orange paw.
19. West Virginia
Geno Smith, but one bad, bad loss.
20. Texas A&M
Where are the Longhorns? Honestly, is this what we’re left with?
21. Boise State
Blue field. Paul Bunyan’s Ox. They always dominate, but nobody watches. Jumped the shark?
The Big House. Where has Denard Robinson gone? (Appalachian State…)
Finally! Win, why don’t ya?
Wait… not Ohio State?
Let them have fun for a week.
