You've got to be kidding me...then again, this is 2007, the craziest college football year any of us could ever remember. To recap:
- Ok, we did our job and won the SEC Title.
- Pitt, a 28-point underdog, beat West Virginia
- Oklahoma, as expected, knocked off Mizzou
And all of a sudden, we are back in the national title hunt. So, what is the chance that when tomorrow's BCS standings are released (at 8pm Eastern on FOX, by the way), that LSU is in the championship game? The folks wagering at Tradesports.com are giving us about a 60% chance of being in the national championship game (my math = we're at 30% chance to win it all, and I'm assuming the market is certain Ohio State is in it, and giving them 50% odds. So we take 30% of those 50% remaining odds, meaning we're at 60%, by far and away the market leader at this point).
I'm an investment manager, and I like the market. It could be wrong, hence the 40% odds being left for the rest of the field...but allow me to say I CANNOT BELIEVE IT. We are the odds on favorite to be IN the title game. And that's all we can ask for.
Give Glenn Dorsey (and everyone else) a month to heal, and bring on anyone, baby.
