Like Dave Kaiserman said above. This is a train wreck for the Pac-12. I'm rooting for Stanford, but I'm also tired of hearing about the SEC. If the current score holds up, they'll both be out of the championship hunt. Hopefully Bama, Florida State, Ohio State & Baylor will have a late season loss to make things interesting

This is a TRAIN WRECK for the PAC 12!!! 17-0 Stanford.

No offense Stanford fans, but I am TIRED of the SEC invitational...I mean the BCS Championship.

Last year (at the time) #1 Alabama (at home) lost to #17 Texas A&M - at home - late in the season. They dropped waaaaay down to 4th in the polls. Wow, that was brutal... :rolleyes: They ended up in the Championship, and won. Nothing against Alabama, it wasn't there fault, they just did their job.

However, in fairness, If #2 Oregon loses to #5 Stanford, at Stanford... by those same "calculations", Oregon should move up to # 1.5

Seriously though, Oregon should drop one spot, maybe two. If it was Alabama, I can almost guarantee that's what would happen. I'll put money on the fact, that Oregon would drop to around #10, and no shot at the title.
They also consider who you've beaten not just who you have lost too.

So "they" say. Funny how teams are "great", "good", "tough wins" when Bama, Oklahoma, etc., are playing them...but when the PAC 12 teams play those same teams, not so much.

Or, when a #5 team beats a #2 team (in the PAC 12) it's all relative. "The PAC 12 just isn't a tough conference this year..." Can't tell you how many times I've heard that one. Gee... then why is Stanford #5 and OU #2. How'd they get there? The end result = OU will fall to #9, Stanford won't go anywhere...:(

Just for the record, this isn't aimed at you personally...

No worries, I don't disagree with your perspective of there being a bit of an SEC bias. If Stanford hadn't lost to Utah I could see them in contention but that loss is going to haunt them.

And by the end comes around, "they" will have Utah whittled down to looking like nothing more than a high school team...making it look even worse.

I didn't see the game, but from all that I heard, Stanford's D wasn't suppose to be that good - not good enough to stop OU's offense anyway.

I think some eyes might be glaring at the O.C. of the Ducks.

But, Stanford gets to ask..."Who's your daddy?"

The final score doesn't reflect the thorough ass whooping Stanford put on. I hate the tree right now, but they deserved that one, just like last year. And probably next year

Ducks offense played fine besides turnovers.

It was Oregon's d that lost it. Check time of possession and it explains everything

Oregon got their ass handed to them in the first half. If Oregon didn't play so shitty in the first half it would of been a different story in the end.
