We all know what a chaotic weekend it was in college football. #2, #4 and #5 all went down. And we knew the fallout would be very comprehensive. After their brutal defeat to the Union in the Civil War, champions of the Confederacy were known to say “the South shall rise again!”

And it’s happened, this weekend in 2011- although I’m sure this is nothing like what the southern gentlemen envisioned. The SEC Western division teams: LSU Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide, and the Arkansas Razorbacks are 1-2-3 in the tonight’s BCS standings.

Yeah, I guess you could say it’s the strongest conference in football; and the strongest division in football.

If you wish to be Captain Obvious.

Despite Routing #5 Utah, TCU Still Not Slotted for BCS Title Game

Even though #3 and undefeated Texas Christian absolutely manhandled #5 (and previously undefeated) Utah on Saturday, it was still not enough for them to move up into a slot to play for the college football national title. (If the season ended today) In fact, they didn’t even move up at all, they remained at number three.

If you are a BCS proponent, you are truly running out of credibility (not like you really had much to begin with). There are four undefeated teams left in college football, two power conference teams: #1 Oregon and #2 Auburn, and two “mid-majors” #3 TCU and #4 Boise St.

In the latest rankings, the Big Ten first checks in at #7 Wisconsin Badgers, followed by #9 Ohio State Buckeyes, #11 Michigan State Spartans and #13 Iowa Hawkeyes. Throw in Nebraska next year at #8 and it looks like a really solid, top heavy conference even though there is absolutely no way a conference team plays for the title in 2010.

State is off to their first 7-0 start since the national championship year of 1966. The first BCS standings of the college football season came Sunday night, and since MSU is the only undefeated Big Ten team left, they lead the way among conference representation at #7.

The top five consists of Oklahoma, Oregon, Boise St, Auburn, and TCU. Other Big Ten teams in the top 25 include #10 Ohio State, #13 Wisconsin, #15 Iowa and (sort of) #16 Nebraska.

Head Coach Mark D’Antonio articulated what it feels like to be 7-0:
