Oregon's defense is 34th in points against vs a pudding schedule. They've given up 99pts in the first 5 games. That isn't outstanding defense by any measure.
SC just destroyed #5, will destroy LSU next week and will likely beat a top 10 Florida with authority. And they're 7th in points against.
If SC runs the table in the East and Bama runs the table in the west with a tight game in the SEC championship, they make a strong argument to leapfrog Oregon and have another SEC rematch in the BCS game.
Out scored opponents 262-99, and it's about to be an even bigger point gap. SC is 34th in points for. What's your point? If we win out, we'll go to the Natty. The leapfrog scenario is a pretty big reach. But I've been surprised by the BCS before. Yes, we do need a playoff system.
