    FooMaster Football Final Rankings Prognosticators Contest!

    How bout a contest to name the winner of tonight's game for the BCS National Championship Game and the TOP 5 final rankings?

    The "winner" get a swimsuit calendar of either the Women of Foo or the Men of Foo. Winner picks.

    Points are awarded this way, 30 points for picking tonight's winner, 10 points for picking a Top 5 Team and 25 points for placing that team in the correct order. This is the BCS Rankings, not the ones that might make more sense.

    Here are my choices-

    Winner: Alabama

    Rankings-

    1. Alabama
    2. Boise
    3. Florida
    4. Texas
    5. Ohio State
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    There's a BCS poll after the bowls are over?

    I think Alabama will win.

    Bama probably will win, but I still will be cheering for the Horns. Boise will not be ranked any higher than 4th.

    Wow Zman, you put Texas at 3? You surprise me that you did not let your anti Texan bias shade your decision making ability.

    fwiw - I just found this. Doesn't include the final game, but it's proof the BCS doesn't know poo: Ga Tech loses, and moves up? Florida was #1, loses to the National Champions, pastes the team that was #5, and drops to #5 behind the team they walloped. Those BCS computers are smoking something really potent.

    Looks like this may have been a trick question. I saw another site that showed "Final BCS Standings" which were evidently made before the Bowl games. Looks like Velo Vol had this called right at post 2.
