Cinci or TCU should have gotten the National Title game over Texas. Texas should consider themselves lucky to be in what's considered a better division. TCU just looks scary good this year both on defense and on offense and their schedule was no pushover by any means and their reward for going undefeated is to have to play Boise State again after they beat them last year.

As for Cincinatti they just seem to be able to find a way to win games. They have heart and I think they would have been playing for the National Title had Texas lost.

As for the SEC being oh so great let me point out that a few of those SEC teams played at least 3 games against cupcakes.

Um, strength of schedule for the top 10 is as follows.

1. Alabama (4)
2. Texas (30)
3. Cincinnati (42)
4. TCU (75)
5. Florida (8)
6. Boise State (92)
7. Oregon (11)
8. Ohio State (50)
9. Georgia Tech (36)
10. Iowa (22)

Both SEC teams are in the top 10 for SOS. Besides them, no one in the top 6 even breaks the top 30 in SOS.

I count at least 26 games in the 2009 SEC Schedule that were against non division cupcakes than any team in the SEC should easily blow up. 26 might be wrong as I browsed it quickly but the number is right around there.

I won't even bother telling you how many sh*t teams are on Big 10 schedules. People think the SEC needs to live up to this high standard and forget that most schedules are even worse.

Iowa's schedule:

Northern Iowa: ... 7-4 in the NCAA Subdivision (Div 2) (CUPCAKE)
Iowa State: ....... 6-6 (#63)
Arizona: ............ 8-4 (#22)
Penn St.: .......... 10-2 (#11) (Overrated State!)
Arkansas St.: ..... 4-8 (#103) (CUPCAKE)
Michigan: .......... 5-7 (#80) (CUPCAKE)
Wisconsin: ........ 9-3 (#17)
Michigan St.: ..... 6-6 (#55)
Indiana: ............ 4-8 (#83) (CUPCAKE)
Northwestern: .... 8-4 (#16)
Ohio St.: .......... 10-2 (#7) (Overrated State #2!)
Minnesota: ........ 6-6 (#69)

Iowa played 5 teams that were either ranked in the bottom half of the CBS 120 or that were division 2. 4 cupcakes. Half Iowa's schedule was ****. Do you hear me saying Iowa needs to schedule a top team in every slot? No. That would be stupid. No team could survive that schedule.

Iowa has a high ranked SOS because of the top teams... It's exactly the same as the SEC teams.
