College Football Fans...Check The Resumes


Okay, I have to defend myself, my favorite team, and the state of college football all in this one. College Football and the nation are up in arms over what's transpired on this Thanksgiving weekend. Many of you are probably just as upset as the pundits in the media. Well guess what...

I am upset too.

I'm upset that you're upset. I hate that it had to come to this. So I'm going to take a hard line and TRY to call it down the middle. Take the name away from some of these teams and take the emotion away from how you truly feel. Alabama is the only team in the nation that has no doubts on where they stand and they deserve (pending the SEC Championship. However, these are some emotional times this week. People are upset, frustrated, and downright lucky. Is the system showing favoritism? How much do you honestly factor in head-to-head matchups? Check the resume on the teams below as I've given you their accomplishments only, no names. You tell me who's the most deserving of anything.

Team A - Current record, 10-1. Defeated 3 teams currently in the Top 25 this season all by at least 14 points. Nonconference schedule includes victory against a BCS team currently ranked #10 in the nation. Pending one game this Saturday, will become a BCS Conference champion. Only loss came to a team currently unranked who is tied for second in their conference with an 8-4 record.

Team B - Current record, 11-1. Defeated 2 teams currently in the Top 25 this season, both of which by 30+ points. Nonconference schedule includes 3 victories against bowl eligible teams, 2 from BCS conferences. Pending one game this Saturday, will become a BCS Conference champion. Only loss came to a team currently ranked #22 and finished second in their conference's division with an 8-4 record.

Team C - Current record, 11-1. Defeated 3 teams currently in the Top 25 this season. Nonconference schedule includes 3 victories against non-BCS conferences. 2 non-conference victories are against bowl-eligible teams, one being a victory against a 6-6 BCS team.

Now...

Maybe you can figure out, maybe you can't. But look at the resumes of these teams, and you tell me who's proven the most. I understand you can't control your schedule, but if the system benefits those who have a stronger strength of schedule, then you've got to be proactive. Can you figure out the 6 teams?
