“A one loss team…”

Former USC tailback and current Fox Sports broadcaster, Petros Papadakis, was just on Jim Rome is Burning. He made a statement that only further intensifies the debate on Boise State and the BCS National Championship: “A one loss team from the SEC, the Big Ten, or the Pac-10, has a better chance at getting in [the BCS National Championship] than Boise State.”

Readers, have at it! The Moronz want to hear you!

    I would agree with that with some circumstance. Lets take Iowa State for the argument. They have the 3rd hardest schedule in the country based upon opponents records last season (which we know does not really mean anything). ISU will play 4… teams that are ranked in the top 10 and a fifth that is ranked at #20. Boise State has ONE. They won that game and it wasn’t what I would call a blowout or anything that shows me that they are “the best in the nation”.

    I think that if they do go undefeated they should be looked at for the national title game. The reason that I say that is because they will either win the game and finally be accepted as a championship team or they will lose and depending on how they play probably still accepted as a championship caliber team.

    Also, It is sad that we have to have this conversation year after year. Many teams are discriminated against because of their conference, their fans, or their traditions but they get past them with time. The only way to finish this conversation is to put them against the best and see what the outcome is.
