Now UGa is up 21-17 and just intercepted the ball, this game has been ridiculous so far.

Bama came out flat last night but no reason for any real concern 40-14. North Texas is up next.

Meanwhile Auburn is starting to look like the smash mouth team of old with a 49-24 beat down of Miss. St. West Virginia is the next game for Auburn.

No kidding. I don't actually root against OSU like I do a lot of other teams, but come on now that's funny. I had to endure the Slowpokes fans bragging about being ranked high for the first time since the 80s and it looks like that was just a balloon waiting to be popped. When you get trounced like that at home by a commuter school it's funny.

I don't know if Houston is actually a commuter school, but that doesn't necessarily make it laughable. UH has had good football teams in the past and has had plenty of successful seasons in other sports as well. The football program is at least comparable to Oklahoma State's.

Houston area has a ton of high school talent. Some of the best in the country. Throw Baylor out of the Big 12 and put Houston or TCU in the Big 12. I know Baylor is actually pretty good this year but most years they are not.

It is. People in general don't actually live there and the campus isn't all that, and it's in the worst part of Houston.

True or not, how does that affect the school's football standing?

It doesn't.

The information I found is that 12% of students at the University of Houston live on campus (about 4,000 students)...while 20% of students at the University of Oklahoma live on campus (about 5,500 students). Both universities own rental apartments in surrounding areas for off campus student housing.

Not a lot difference in my book. So, should we label Oklahoma as a commuter school?

I don't know, where do you think the remaining students live..near campus or at their parents? Is OU pretty much comprised of 4 unique, different campuses all around OKC (like U of H in Houston), or just 1 main campus in Norman? On gamedays Norman, a city of 100,000, also almost doubles in population..

And there's not a lot of difference to you between 12% and 20%?

But Baylor is competitive in every other sport. Unlike TCU or Houston. Or even A&M up to recently. So Baylor stays.

Nope, not a lot of difference...8% is not a lot. Sorry.

I have no idea where the remaining students live. Are you saying that you know for a fact that the remaining University of Houston students live with their parents? That's pretty absurd if it's what you're saying...

Here is a quick look at conference strength.

So far the SEC and Pac 10 are leading the way.

1. SEC (13-2; 3-2 BCS)
2. Pac10 (13-4; 4-2 BCS)
3. Big10 (13-4; 4-3 BCS*)
4. Big12 (16-6; 3-1 BCS) - 5 losses to non-BCS
5. MWC (11-6; 3-5 BCS)
6. Big East (10-3; 0-3 BCS)
7. ACC (12-7; 2-5 BCS)

Baylor only got in so that the Texas leg would approve UT and A&M joining the Big 12.

3. Big10 (13-4; 4-3 BCS*) - 11 wins over FCS teams
4. Big12 (16-6; 3-1 BCS) - 11 wins over FCS teams
5. MWC (11-6; 3-5 BCS) - 5 wins over FCS teams
6. Big East (10-3; 0-3 BCS) - 9 wins over FCS teams
7. ACC (12-7; 2-5 BCS) - 8 wins over FCS teams

Let's make this more honest...most of the wins in these first two weeks have been over FCS (Division I-AA) teams. It looks like the MWC and Pac10 have played the most competitive schedules so far - the other conferences have played mostly cupcake teams.

There a difference between U oh H main campus, and the UH system with 4 main universities.

UH-Main is the only one with a football team(and really any sports for that matter), so all the satellite locations are irrelevant to this thread.

The relationship between UH and all of its other campuses is about the same to the relationship between UT-Austin and UT-San Antonio. Both share the same name, but there's not many similarities.

They still played 5 BCS teams already which is a good number.

MWC is still not a BCS conference. They are very soft mid and lower ranks in the conference. Utah, BYU, and TCU are solid though.

PAC 10 plays the MWC b/c they are neighboring conferences. Also, the PAC 10 has to bring in name opponents b/c of lack of interest. LSU played Washington and the game wasn't even a sell out. Tennessee played at UCLA last year and was ranked. I was shocked to see entire sections empty at the stadium. Outside of USC and Oregon (small stadium) the rest of the teams fell to sell out the majority of games the entire season. Last year Oregon was the only team in the conference to sell out the entire season.
