Yes, the first official standings don't come out until the afternoon of Oct. 19, but who in their right mind can wait that long? Sam Chi, the BCS Guru, says the Trojans have leapfrogged Ohio State, which dropped to No. 2. USC is idle Saturday and Ohio State has a scrimmage against Ohio, meaning the Trojan-Buckeye game Sept. 13 at the L.A. Coliseum will likely be a matchup of the No. 1 and 2 teams in the BCS.
Sam is also breaking down the top-10 teams of the BCS era. Thus far Michigan (No. 10), Georgia (No. 9) and Florida State (No. 8) are on the list.
While gazing into the crystal ball, Tim Tebow is narrowly leading the Heisman race, according to the Heisman Pundit.com/Orlando Sentinel poll. Chase Daniel of Missouri is second.
Speaking of Tebow, why was he playing deep into the third quarter against Hawaii with Florida comfortably ahead, 42-0? Is padding his stats worth risking injury? And why were the Gators still throwing the ball? What has happened to sportsmanship?
