A long time back, the Beatles were the fab four. John, Paul, Ringo and George. Each different from the other one. College football's top four teams in the BCS standings are currently undefeated. So why not see which Beatle Alabama, Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame are like.
(1)Alabama: Paul McCartney
Like Sir Paul, Alabama has been the most successful out of the group. A two minute drive to beat LSU in Death Valley Saturday was like when McCartney plays "Hey Jude" for the 1000th time, it never gets old. They seem to be the most stable out of the four. As long as they don't think they're bigger than Jesus, they are more Paul than John in this case, especially with how Nick Saban is.
(2)Kansas State: John Lennon
The Wildcats are an inspiration this season, much like Lennon was an inspiration to so many people. Kansas State is in a position that they have not been in. If they win out, they are most likely in the title game. As long as they don't go "Yoko" in the final three weeks, the top four won't fall apart.
(3)Oregon: Ringo Starr
The Ducks are like Ringo because they beat the drum loudly to make their case for why they should be in the top two. Much like Ringo, Oregon feels like they don't get as much credit for their production and contribution to the F.B.S. They're exciting, but are caught in the background. They keep winning, they'll get more credit.
(4)Notre Dame: George Harrison
The Irish could be any of the four Beatles, but we'll say they are more George Harrison in this seasons scenario. Notre Dame is always making a contribution to the college football landscape. Harrison, the bands lead guitarist, contributed some popular songs to the group's albums during their time together. Notre Dame's contribution is not as liked as Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun" was, but they make the season more interesting when they play well. Their close wins at home could write an interesting song for the end of the season.
For some Beatles fans, you may not agree with how the teams were matched with each band member. Alabama could be John Lennon, Kansas State could be George, and maybe some in Irish nation would claim Notre Dame is more of a Ringo.
When you think about it, the argument about which Beatle they are is just like trying to predict which two of the four undefeated teams will be standing at #1 and #2 come next month.
