They lack speed in comparison, but offset with smarts and physicality. 1/2 of football is the only difference I see between Auburn, Oregon and Stanford...not necessarily in that order. A playoff sure would be nice.
I agree. Stanford could probably beat oregon in a rematch if the game was played at home instead of the road.
To me they are clearly the better team than Tcu and should end up ranked no
lower than #3 when the final rankings come out.
And by the way, the big 10 really sucked this year. Only Ohio state has won
a bowl game and it took like 4 turnovers from Arkansas for them to be able to pull it off.
Tcu barely beat a very flawed Wisconsin team. Not to impressive to me.
Stanford trounced a team from
West Virginia that I think is a far better team than Wisconsin
