It is strange isn't it? I know Michigan has lost against quality teams and all (45-3 combined record) but I really didn't expect them to remain where they were, the computers kept them there as the human polls placed the Wolverines at 23 and 24. It appears the opposite was true with the two teams out West. The human polls placed Oregon St. at 15 and 17 and both have UCLA at 16.
What a joke. Michigan loses and doesn't drop, Oregon State gets blown out and doesn't drop, UCLA gets blown out and goes up a spot! The Powers-That-Be are doing everything they can to keep the non-AQ schools out of the BCS picture.
If I get over other two remaining where they were before, I still have trouble understanding how the Bruins move UP after a loss. UCLA is right in front of Kent St. though so if they lose and Kent St. wins, the MAC should have their first BCS team. I think that's the only way a non-AQ school gets in this year. Boise St. still has to play a decent Nevada team but that probably won't be enough to get there and neither will a N. Illinois victory over Kent St.
Many of the teams that still have a game left to play are too far ahead of the Golden Flashes to help them by losing (Alabama, Georgia, Kansas St., Stanford, Oklahoma, and maybe Nebraska). A Florida St. loss would probably help the cause but that isn't likely to come against a 6-6 Georgia Tech team. What could really screw Kent St. is a Texas victory that moves the Longhorns in front of the Golden Flashes. Kent St. needs to win and for Stanford to beat UCLA, a Longhorn loss would be nice insurance too.
