Calix Cari 2009 Week 14

With the conference championship games complete my Calix Cari rankings once again agree with the pollsters: its Texas versus Alabama for the title.

Surprisingly, despite Tebow crying after visiting the wood-shed in Atlanta Florida still ranks #3, ahead of undefeated teams TCU, Cincinnati, and Boise State. Two loss Oregon comes in at #4, based on its strong showings against Cal, USC, Arizona, and Oregon State. Boise State produced the second best victory of the year (against Oregon) but couldn’t overcome a week conference schedule to rise higher than #9.

The Pac-10 placed 6 teams in the top 25, followed by Big 12 at 4, SEC, Big East, ACC, and Big 10 at 3, MWC at 2, and WAC at 1. Clearly the Pac-10’s 8-4 logjam was seen more highly than the SEC’s 7-5 logjam.

Snow

It’s snowing right now in Houston. I’m not sure if it will stick.
