Fair enough. I just think that 3 wins vs ranked teams (USC @ OSU, Cal, ND) on the road outweighs 1 road ranked win (Cin @ USF).
That's true and like you said, there's no true #4, so you could go a lot of ways - Boise, Cincy, Iowa, USC, etc. But the Bearcats are that team that has just looked great all year, they haven't really struggled. I agree that they don't have the same calibre of victories as some of the other contenders, but it doesn't change the fact that they simply take care of business week in and week out. They are very well coached and have some great talent in Tony Pike and Marty Gilyard. Again, if USC wins this weekend, they are #4 for me, but for now: Cincy.
By the way guys, Cody's helmet is removed before Alabama has possession of the ball.
Fifteen yard penalty and rekick. I was incorrect to say that it happened after the play. Didn't watch the video closely enough. Ball still belongs to UT until Alabama recovers it.
Learn the rules before issuing an incorrect statement.

As I've said all along, its a non-issue. Even if the ball was live, Rolando McClain fell on it. It simply bewilders me how many fans have complained about that "no call" with demands of a rekick. Why would anyone ever think there would be a rekick in the first place? This is just a textbook example of why I hate the CBS broadcasting crew and why they are the worst in the history of the world. Because Gary "Idiot" Danielson says there should have been a rekick, there should be a rekick? Don't ever trust commentators to know what they are talking about, especially Gary and Verne.
If you had seen the game, you'd get the context for the lulz.
He's replacing Kendall Kelly, the Alabama true freshman WR who talked about sex with fellow UA true freshman Dre Kirkpatrick on their National Signing Day announcement after not realizing his mic was on.
