BCS = Breakdown of Cincinnati’s Superiority (week 2)

Oops, I did it again! I just came up with another alternate meaning for BCS. At this rate I’m going to win my own contest! That’s why you should enter (see rules two posts below this one) before I come up with even more BCS zingers and there aren’t any left for you to think of.

Anyway, I hope you’ve been chilling since our last episode. To recap, I am going game-by-game to show how Cincinnati had a more impressive season than Texas and thus is more deserving of playing Bama for the BCS title. Obviously it would be better if we had a playoff system so all these discussions would be moot, but that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon so I choose to focus my energies on disparaging Texas.

Without further ado, I give you week 2:

Cincinnati 70, Southeast Missouri State 3 – Okay, so this was kind of a warm-up game. SMS, as I will call them for short, is in the Ohio Valley Conference, which is in Division 1-AA. But with the 12-game college football schedule of today, every D-1 team pretty much has to play at least one 1-AA team. And these 1-AA teams are no joke – remember App State vs. Michigan? Of course you do.


Texas 41, Wyoming 10 – This game was at Wyoming, which finished the year 6-6 and fifth in the Mountain West Conference. In the MWC, the Cowboys (see left) lost to all the teams with winning records and beat all the ones with losing records. Apparently they’re playing Fresno State in some kind of “bowl” a week from Saturday.  Blah, blah, blah.

You win this round Texas! But don’t get used to it.

Rankings: After these wins, Texas stayed at #2 in both polls (starting to see a pattern here!) while Cincinnati moved up from #23 in both polls to #17 (AP) and #21 (USA Today). HERE WE COME, TEXAS! CAN YOU HEAR THE BEARCAT FOOTSTEPS?!?
