"nearly all of us made a point of following committee protocol of emphasizing conference championships. Pac-10 champ USC (No. 4 vs. No. 5), Big Ten champ Penn State (No. 5 vs. No. 8) and ACC champ Virginia Tech (No. 13 vs. No. 19) all came in higher in our rankings than in the final 2008 BCS standings."
"Good defenses stand out more than powerful offenses"
"I, however, was among several who felt that evaluating who a team beat over the course of its other 11-12 games is far more enlightening than singling out the one game it lost."
Be the B1G Champ - The D has to keep looking better, while playing statistaclly well - and hopefully VaTech will be forgiven as a young team learning as they grew.
