The easy question is to ask if Ohio State is better than Baylor, but the real question should ask if Michigan State is better than Oklahoma State. That is the most important question over the next few weeks, but it will not matter if Alabama and Florida State run the table to collide in Pasadena.
Oklahoma State had a terrific season, but got by far the toughest draw out of any five-seed in the bracket. Keep an eye on Oregon.

The sports talk around the water cooler this morning probably isn’t about college basketball, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t an exciting weekend for the sport.
In the days leading up to the final BCS Standings everyone was talking about whether LSU should play Alabama or Oklahoma State.
I don’t think a team that doesn’t win their conference title should play for the national championship.
