Friday Forum: Ranking The BCS Conferences And Sneaking In The Mountain West

Where would TCU and the Mountain West fit among the BCS conferences? (Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images)

We had the simple assignment this week in the forum (or so it seemed) of ranking the conferences from first to worst and sneaking the Mountain West in there somewhere. As always, we'd like to know your thoughts as well. Here we go!

Halfway through the season now. Rank the BCS conferences from strongest to weakest and sneak the Mountain West in there somewhere. 

1. SEC - Hate to do it, you have no idea, but the Big 12 just is too weak at the bottom to put them above America's Conference.

2. Big 12 - OU carries this ranking for the conference, but being the only conference with three undefeated teams doesn't hurt either.

3. Pac 10 - Oregon and everybody else?  At least until the Ducks lose.

4. Big 10 - tOSU proved to be the fraud most thought they were.

5. Mountain West - TCU and Utah are enough for me to rank them #5.

6. ACC - C'mon FSU!!!

7. Big East - continues to be an absolute joke.

 

Big 12 offensive and defensive players of the week 

Offensive POtW - Call me a homer, but I'm splitting it between two record breaking Sooners.  DeMarco Murray and Ryan Broyles were simply outstanding against Iowa State.

Defensive POtW - Again a cop out on my part, but I'm giving mine to the entire OU defense for pitching the shutout against the Cyclones.

 

Big 12 power rankings

1. Oklahoma - 6-0 and #1 by a wide margin, at least in my rankings, heading into what's being hyped as a big game this weekend.

2. Missouri - 6-0 and with their first real test Saturday against OU.

3. Oklahoma State - 6-0 and with their own showdown this weekend.

4. Nebraska - 5-1 and potentially exposed this past week.

5. Kansas State - 5-1 but that one loss I think is more indicative of who this team actually is as compared to their five wins.

6. Texas - 4-2 and coming off a pretty good win, but as expected have already proclaimed themselves to "be BACK!"

7. Baylor - 5-2 and not a team you want to sleep on.

8-12 - Does it really matter?  You could put them in any order and it would make zero difference.

Big 12 offensive and defensive players of the week 

Offensive - Landry Jones. Can't be anyone else after the performance he put up. That was Sam Bradford level accuracy for most of the game.

Defensive - The entire Texas defense. I predicted on my site that Texas would win outright and they did just that. The Longhorn defense will eat one dimensional offenses alive and they throughly exposed the Nebraska offense.
