Why college football needs a playoff system… Exhibit A

Posted: September 6, 2008 in college football, Georgia, SoCal
For reasons known only to God, SoCal is now #1 in the AP poll while Georgia drops to #2. The reason is because SoCal played a BCS conference opponent.

Now Stank-0 is all for teams not having a steady diet of cupcakes, but uh…Georgia didn’t lose and they won pretty impressively at that.

Stank-0 thinks the computers need some more tweakin if they are blowin it this early in the season.

“There’s a bit of a growing backlash for the amount of teams that open with I-AA cupcakes,” said Mandel, whose book “Bowls, Polls and Tattered Souls” chronicles college football’s controversies. “To see a team [USC] go on the road and play a New Year’s Day bowl team from last season, and not only play them but destroy them, how could you not reward that team?”

USC also jumped past Georgia to No. 1 in the USA Today coaches’ poll, which has the same top five as the AP poll.


Fundamentally, Stank-0 is in total agreement, but in reality Virginia is an upper echelon cupcake. The clip below will bear this out.
