Games I watched: Texas-Texas A&M(3/4), Hawaii-Wisconsin(half), Maryland-NC State(half), Fresno State-Nevada(all) small parts of:N. Ill.-W. Mich, WV-Pitt, Colo-Neb, Ari-ASU, VT- NC

Notes:

  • Fresno State has lost all national respect, again, for the third time in five years. Every time they get some national respect; it is all lost in conference play.
  • After pondering for some time, I concluded TCU's bad loss at SMU and Louisville's embarrassment at South Florida are far worse than Fresno State's 4 point loss at Nevada. SMU is getting better, but are no where as good as Nevada. South Florida is a decent team but Louisville had no business getting beat by 31 points. Based on those factors Fresno State deserves to be ranked. They played one bad game at an 8-3 Nevada team that is co-WAC champs. Considering the game came after back-to-back games against Boise State and USC, it can be forgiven but not forgotten.
  • Notre Dame has been looking pretty lackluster; do they really deserve a BCS bid?
