First BCS Cartel Rankings Are Out: LSU #1

Check out the numbers:

- Remember, computers are only 1/3 of the equation. Sports Information Directors Coaches and low-level hacks journalists are the majority opinion.

- LSU @ Alabama is BCS HGH for the winner of that contest.

- Quite a gap between the Top 3 and #4. Don't sweat that - OSU plays OU, Bama plays LSU, at least one of those four teams will also be upset at some point. Lots of movement still to come.

- The computers love Oklahoma State so much that they want the Cowboys to be their girlfriend. The Sooners should hope to face a 11-0 OSU in Bedlam.

- If you're surprised that the computers have Texas @ #19, don't be. Our schedule is well-regarded by SkyNet. Computers are better @ forgiving losses to good teams than fans.

- Don't ignore Wisconsin as the dark horse if SEC and Big 12 mayhem plays out in a fairly predictable way. The Big 10 may back another sacrificial lamb into the title game against the S!-E!-C!.

- As clear as Clemson's path is, the likelihood of them doing Clemsony things is just too strong.
