This week's Top 10 Comparison Chart

This week's Top 10 Comparison Chart

It's not total BCS chaos, but at least it's something.

I happen to think Texas deserves to be ranked above Oklahoma, because the Longhorns beat the Sooners in Dallas and lost to Texas Tech in Lubbock. OU beat Tech in Norman, which to me matters a lot.

Granted, the Sooners' margin of victory in that game matters too, as does their win at Oklahoma State. But the head-to-head matchup really ought to count more than any of the above factors, especially because it wasn't all that early in the season.

But what we ended up with was just enough of a problem to get people to seriously think about how screwed up the BCS is. It might not be enough to break the thing, but hopefully ti put a few cracks in the wall.

Which team do you think should be the Big 12 South's representative in the title game? And which teams do you think should play for the national championship?

Let me know in the comments, and join me at 7:45 p.m. tonight for live coverage of the Villanova-Penn game.
