That is why I participate in the Mumme Poll and think all polls should wait until the end of September to come out.
Let me cut to the chase: the only reason, at least right now, anyone thinks Boise State is a legitimate BCS contender is the win over a team that got beaten by a college named for a US President. Yes, they have a good football team. Do they have a top two football team? At best it is an open question, one that may well have been answered Saturday night in Blacksburg.
Conclusion of this issue from The Quad:
"While Hokies fans will bemoan Virginia Tech’s failure to live up to lofty expectation yet again, Boise State will be left trying to find another way to prove that it belongs in the B.C.S. title conversation."If your best win is a come from behind win against a team that lost to JMU, well it isn't good enough, at least until all other teams lose at least one. Even then, I don't think it answers the question in the affirmative.
