After whipping Nebraska Saturday is Wisconsin better than Oklahoma? Does Stanford have enough talent to win a championship? Is Illinois legit? Michigan? Texas? We give our thoughts on the Week Five action. Navy and Air Force played an epic game, Steve Spurrier screwed up, the Big Ten Legends Division is wide open, Washington got a sneaky win this week and Trent Richardson may win the Heisman.

Personally, I'd love to see Wisconsin and Oklahoma have it out on the field -- as would I with the Badgers and Boise State, Alabama, LSU, Stanford, you name it. The fact is that Nebraska has not been a very good team at any point this season, and Wisconsin is sufficiently good that it needs a legitimate Top 5 opponent to play before we can accurately figure out where the Badgers stand in the pecking order. They're likely to go undefeated, but then so is whoever wins between Alabama and LSU on November 5, and it wouldn't surprise me if at least two teams out of the trio of Boise State, Oklahoma, and Stanford did too.
Now would be as good a time as any to remind fans that college football has always aggressively opposed the type of playoff system that could help more accurately solve this dilemma, because that's not really what the powers that be have ever been interested in.
