    Does ANYONE actually believe Hawaii could be anyone in these polls. I'm not sure they could beat Notre Dame. BTW, I heard with one more win ND will be BCS eligible and Weis, that fat, snot nosed, hoodie wearing, Jaba the Hut looking pompous ass will be eligible for another extension....just like ND, Hawaii getting a BCS bowl would be a complete travesty! Go Blue Devils!

    Why all the hate for the Rainbows? They afforded you two trips to Hawaii when you were an AF brat, frankly I think you owe them a debt of gratitude. A little WAC love would be in order wouldn't it? Just kidding but to answer your question yes I think that they could beat some of the teams in the top 25. As I said before though I will punish them severely for a loss so their lofty perch is fragile at best in my poll.

    As for the ND "crying Irish" I must agree. Chucky is playing for the toilette bowl against Duke. I hope they get flushed.

    I understand that Notre Dame engaged with the MAC conference about joining but the MAC said that credibility would be an issue and declined to take the measure any further. Upon hearing this the rest of the mid majors have declined to have discussions with them.

    Not that I agree with this poll. But at least these people are willing to put there money where there mouth is... I give you the oddsmaker's poll!

    The poll shouldn't be purely on the oddsmakers. Though Hawaii doesn't have the talent to play w/ the BCS contenders, they could play with the teams at the bottom of the poll. (I'm glad UT doesn't play them) And they should be rewarded to some extent for their successful season and if they are able to beat Boise, then it might not be so bad if they make it to the BCS.

    Greg said...

    I agree Marc. The poll shouldn't be for the "best" team. It should be for the team having the best season. Otherwise, upsets would mean nothing. But Hawaii has played the weakest schedule in the country and won by the skin of there teeth. The point is moot. With Boise St. and Washington left on the schedule, we'll find out if they're any good.

    We definitely will find out about Hawaii. And I admittedly have them way too high in my poll but if they lose, I won't have any problem dropping them out. Are you prepared to move them way up if they win both games?

    Greg said...

    IF Hawaii wins out, they'll probably move up to the 12 spot. Kansas wins out, they're #1. Maybe I'm in the minority, but Oregon has looked better than LSU in the games I've seen. I would love to watch a Kansas/Oregon championship game, but you know the voters aren't going to let that happen if they can stick LSU in there.

    Though I also think Oregon right now is the best team in the country, it's possible that my experience at WVU has caused me to overreward an undefeated season. That's a little odd 'cause WVU had no business in the national champlonship in 1993. And if Hawaii wins out, they're probably still not deserving of a BCS bowl, but then again, neither is Georgia.
