As the season progresses it

As the season progresses it looks more and more like it may be Alabama versus Ohio State in the BCS championship game. I would really like to see my Buckeyes beat Alabama but I just don't know if they can.

dont think so

I wouldnt get ahead of yourself quit yet. Ohio stae plays a weak scedule and one slip up and they'll drop in the rankings. Oregon has a better body of work it will just be a couple more weeks till we jump you in the polls. I know ohio state beat us last year but that was last year and oregon is a different team. Even the national media is doughting that ohio state will be #2 for long. I mean they struggled against Ill. and the Big 10 is the #4 rank confrence, they'll need to blow everyone out but 50 in order to stay #2.

Ohio State will be playing

Ohio State will be playing probably at least 4 more top 25 teams. Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Penn State dropped out but I look for them to be back in the top 25 before the end of the season. So, if they win out, I don't see a problem with them not being in the BCS Championship Game.

no way.

I just dont see them winning out. if Pryor gets hurt like he did against Ill, they dont have a chance, when you have a running QB like Pryor the chances of him getting hurt are huge ( see Dennis Dixon from 2007) Plus Mich is looking real good with Denard Robinson. Its very hard to go undefeted in college ball, not to say oregon will but there scedule favors them to do so.

Michigan played a very soft

Michigan played a very soft non-league schedule. Ohio State played at least one good non-league team. Once Michigan starts to play the better teams in the Big Ten they will start losing. I will start by saying they lose this week to Michigan State. Michigan is not that good. If you recall last year they started 3-0 and were ranked in the top 25 then ended up 3-9. Ohio State's toughest competition this year will come from Wisconsin and Iowa.

My ducks pretty much have 2

My ducks pretty much have 2 weeks off, they play Washington state this week which is a gimme game as wsu is the door mat of the pac-10, then we have a bye week, then play UCLA, this season is shaping up to favor the Ducks to go to the Rose bowl again or even making a run at the NC.

With Alabama falling and

With Alabama falling and Oregon winning that put My Duck up to # 2 behind Ohio state. I give it 3 more weesk till Oregon is #1. Ohio state will loose to either wisconsin or Mich state, both teams look very good. The only down side is Oregon got there QB Thomas injured but is ok and will not miss any time and back up RB hurt, it looks like a concusion, he should be ok by the next game. Oregon has a bye week this week and then play UCLA in Eugene, should be a big win for the Ducks.

Well, it looks like my

Well, it looks like my Buckeyes will be the new sheriff in town. Don't jump to any conclusions about them losing one of those two games. The Buckeyes defense is rolling right now and the offense is looking better all the time. The offense had one slow game and I think the Illini are better than what most people think. GO BUCKEYES!!!!!

we'll see

They'll slip up, just look at Alabama, it happens. I know they wont loose to Mich state cause they dont play eachother this year. whats up with that?Confused . Atleast in the Pac-10 you play EVERYONE in the confrence to get a true confrence champ. but the game this week with wisconsin should be a good one. I read an article on espn this morning that if the bcs rankings came out today, both Oregon and Boise would be ahead of Ohio state. just saying dont get to comfortable at #1, like i said i give it 3 weeks till oregon jumps you, Oregon has the strength of scedule on Ohio state.

Oregon may have had a

Oregon may have had a stronger schedule in the first half of the season, but in the second half Ohio State's schedule is tougher. All I can say is if Ohio State wins out they will be playing in the championship game. If they lose 1 they will probably be out unless everyone else loses 1. If they do lose 1 I would like it to be this week. Those late season losses really hurt you in the standings.  Where if everyone else would lose a game late that would benefit the Buckeyes. But, if they win out they won't have to worry about it.
