We all complained about FSU's computer ranking but this is indefensible.
Alabama is your BCS national champion, but one BCS computer refuses to acknowledge it.

playoff system needs to hurry up and get here
There are a lot of BCS computer rankings and only one ridiculous ranking did that, not all BCS rankings. Re-word your title to follow the title of the article so it's actually true.

There are only 6 computer rankings but i will edit the title. Wasn't trying to be misleading.
His title is not misleading. If even one of the six computers has that ridiculous result, it deserves our full derision.
BTW, his title is entirely accurate as written. He did not say in ALL BCS computer rankings or in the COMPOSITE BCS computer rankings.

Who's number 2? Savannah State?
Saying "BCS Rankings have ND as #1" is inaccurate as "rankings" is plural and implies they all as a whole had ND ranked #1. This is wrong. I hate arguing semantics, but that's sensationalism. Not saying it doesn't deserve attention, but the title was inaccurate.

Do you really care whether its 1 or all 6? its BS either way. Relax
Yes, that is a huge difference.
Are we so sensitive here now that we are worried about thread titles?
duh.... one misspelled/misplaced/misinterpreted word and an epidemic of butt hurt is released upon the board.
They really need to put margin of victory back in. It was so stupid to remove that. ND had very close wins over Pitt, BYU, (and others?) that would have hurt them. If you don't want teams running up the score, then cap the margin at 28. But to try and tell anyone that a 28 point is the same as a 1 point win is laughable.
Well it is significant to leave "one" out of the title. Being #1 one in the BCS makes them the national champions. Being #1 in one poll of the BCS does not. Pretty significant in my eyes.
Not really. Even if it gave the impression that all the computers had it that way, that is only part of the BCS rankings. He did indicate it was BCS computer rankings. So, leaving "one" out doesn't suggest they were MNCs.
Agree. People are so stupid regarding stats. They think... "ah, we'll just leave that out. It'll be fine." = Ridiculous results.
The title never said they #1 in the BCS. They could be #1 in the computer polls and not in the whole BCS.
What did it say?
I edited it and added "in one of". I didnt mean to be misleading but it rustled Trumpets jimmiies.
I might get involved in this thread...and not in a positive way.
Uh oh. That sounds ominous.
