I think I know what Wojciechwski was trying to say...

...but come on, Gene.

Missouri is your No. 1 team in the country. This is like Homer Simpson picking up Eva Mendes at a Chi Omega party.

Nothing against Mizzou and quarterback Chase Daniel, but the Tigers aren't the No. 1 team in the country. They aren't even favored in Vegas to beat No. 9 Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship (Mizzou is a 3-point dog).

Missouri is ranked first because somebody needs to be there, and because there is no clear-cut No. 1. There are lots of No. 2s and 3s, which is yet another reason a playoff would work, as opposed to this BCS mess.

"Nothing against Missouri"...right.  What, you're Ricky Bobby now...thinking "With all due respect" means you can say whatever you want and nobody can be offended?

Missouri can't be the No. 1 team in the country because...they're Missouri.  They're not LSU, they're not USC, they're not Ohio State...therefore they're not #1.  Come on, guys.  Try harder than this.  And don't even get me started on Colin Cowherd voting for USC #1...
