You should’ve witnessed Jerry at the NCAA bracket seminar when he was my partner. Amazing. He was (tactfully) correcting Greg Shaheen and Dave Worlock during the tutorial.
BCS just issued release and didn’t even put out new numbers, just rankings…

Revised Final BCS Standings Are Released
BCS Games and Teams’ Eligibility for Those Games Was Unaffected
The National Football Foundation today released revised final BCS standings. The revision was necessitated by a miscalculation in the Colley computer rankings, where the Appalachian State-Western Illinois FCS playoff game was omitted from the final Colley rankings. Mr. Colley discovered this error in a subsequent review and informed the BCS group earlier today. The net result of the error is that Boise State goes from #11 to #10 and LSU goes from #10 to #11 in the revised BCS final standings as shown below.
“I was deeply disturbed when I learned about this today. This error should not have happened and is unacceptable. The final standings have been corrected. Fortunately, it had no effect on any team’s eligibility for the BCS games. But the simple fact that it could have means this issue will be near the top of the agenda for the conference commissioners’ annual review next spring,” said Bill Hancock, Executive Director of the BCS.
The final standings are as follows:
6 Ohio State
9 Michigan State
10 Boise State
13 Virginia Tech
14 Oklahoma State
17 Texas A&M
20 South Carolina
21 Mississippi State
22 West Virginia
23 Florida State
25 Central Florida
