US Ranked 4th

After determining the Big-12 championship game participants the BCS

computers were put to work on other major contests and today the

BCS declared Germany to be the winner of World War II.

"Germany put together an incredible number of victories beginning

with the annexation of Austria and the Sudetenland and continuing

on into conference play with defeats of Poland, France, Norway,

Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands. Their only losses

came against the US and Russia; however considering their entire

body of work--including an incredibly tough Strength of Schedule--

our computers deemed them worthy of the #1 ranking."

Questioned about the #4 ranking of the United States the BCS

commissioner stated "The US only had two major victories--Japan and

Germany. The computer models, unlike humans, aren't influenced by

head-to-head contests--they consider each contest to be only a

single, equally-weighted event."

German Chancellor Adolph Hiter said "Yes, we lost to the US; but we

defeated #2 ranked France in only 6 weeks." Herr Hitler has been

criticized for seeking dramatic victories to earn 'style points' to

enhance Germany's rankings. Hitler protested "Our contest with

Poland was in doubt until the final day and the conditions in

Norway were incredibly challenging and demanded the application of

additional forces."

The French ranking has also come under scrutiny. The BCS commented

" France had a single loss against Germany and following a

preseason #1 ranking they only fell to #2."

Japan was ranked #3 with victories including Manchuria, Borneo and

the Philippines.

Sounds like some of the arguements I've heard from the grogs around here.

Could it be about the Switzerland - Sweden bout, concerning the issue of which country benefited most out of the War?

Indeed, both of them gained several dozens of percentage points of GDP each, relative to their neighbors, so surely they among the winning side, but Switzerland took the ultimate Glory because a hefty amount of the Nazi gold (mostly stolen) ended up on her vaults. Thus a defeat for Sweden, despite earning a Gadzillion dollars or more for trading Iron ore and ball bearings to every dictator on the Planet of the time.
