Okay, Pete, if you say so...

This is for posterity's sake.  From CFN's Pete Fiutak on this week's (6/12/05) "Ask CFN"

Q:
i see another potential BCS train wreck.
i think louisville is all but guaranteed to run the table.
tennessee and iowa each have a solid shot (so does purdue if they get by the hawks)
texas could as well if they beat the buckeyes. hell, so could oklahoma if they keep the streak alive.
boise state could do it again if they get by georgia (gonna be a great game) and then of course theres usc (who i dont think will go undefeated, but they could in the watered down pac 10), so we could end up with another 2004 scenario with several teams each deserving a shot at the title.
with auburn gettin bent over last year, i dont think there is anyway tennessee gets left out if theyre perfect (but by the numbers, they could be screwed if they beat an otherwise undefeated lsu team twice).
if usc runs the table, they will be wire-to-wire #1 meaning that louisville, texas, oklahoma, iowa, purdue, and boise state could all be thinking lawsuit in about 7 months. … anyway, who would you guys leave out under different scenarios? - MR

A: First of all, all these things won’t happen.

Boise State won’t beat Georgia.

Louisville can blow out everyone by 59 and it won’t get any closer than Utah did last year; it doesn’t play anyone all that great.

Iowa isn’t going to go unbeaten having to go on the road to face both Ohio State and Purdue. No one’s going unbeaten in the SEC East.

Texas isn’t likely to go unbeaten almost certain to lose either at Ohio State or against Oklahoma.

So here are your more likely issues: USC is in no matter what if it goes unbeaten. It’ll start the season number one and won’t move as long as it’s unbeaten.

Even with all its flaws this year, Oklahoma only has one really scary game (Texas) until the season finale at Texas Tech.

I’m going to keep saying Purdue has a nutty shot to go unbeaten considering its schedule with no Ohio State or Michigan.

Of course, someone else will emerge from the shadows, LSU, Miami/Florida State winner and/or Ohio State will be in the hunt until the end, and/or USC will fall throwing the whole think out of whack.

Well, why do you have a problem with those statements? Let's hear it!

On a random note, Sexton has been suspended and is in the hospital right now. I think that means Lee or Weatherford will be the starter. Sexton supposedly skipped/missed a drug test, and recently checked into a hospital because he was drunk as hell or tripping on something.
