It’s that time of the year people! No, not when we break our backs raking leaves, but the time when the BCS Stadings start coming out! For those of you that follow the blog religiously know that we like to take some time out of the heated Pick It and Stick It Standings to go over the BCS fight as well. We’re in week 7 of the picks and there’s a large gap between #2 and #3. Will it grow or shrink in the weeks to come? Meanwhile, the first BCS Standings show that computers are way smarter than people and they also like surprises too.
First up, we got ourselves some Pick It Standings. There’s a tie at the top with NU = Benedict Arnold pussies jumping up huge this week to catch Sonny Boy Sweetcakes. NU =, for short, blew away competition this week and scored about 47 more points than anyone else this week. He only missed 5 picks out of the total 27 possible. No matter how much confidence you put in all the picks, that will get you tons of points. There’s nothing else too exciting about the week. Everyone nailed the LSU pick and the push between Oregon State and Washington bummed me out at least. The previous two weeks were dropped for about everyone except JOOSE too.

Well surprise, surprise! The pundits out there were claiming Oregon or Boise State at the number one spot, but Big 12 undefeated Oklahoma gets the honors for the first week of the BCS Standing. The non conference schedule they plowed through pushed them to the top. Beating up Air Force and Florida State helped their cause big time. Oregon hangs around at 2 while Auburn looks really tough at 4. The mid-major boys in Boise State and TCU show up in the top 5. Big 12 wise we see Missouri, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Texas, and Kansas State of all teams. That’s a big surprise as the Wildcats didn’t face a mega touch non conference schedule. They did beat UCLA and their only loss was to highly touted (well kinda now) Nebraska. This will look completely different at the end of the year, but now we have some real metrics to bitch about!
