    BCS scenarios as season winds down

    Here is an interesting one to start this thread......

    All 3 of the phoney teams who would all lose at least 2 games if they played in the SEC and yet are still undefeated(Oregon, K State, Notre Dame) play on the road next week. As we have seen, Notre Dame is capable of losing to anyone, so BC has a shot. They also still have to face USC. K St plays at TCU who isnt good but, ya never know, and Oregon plays a rival in Cal. They also still have to go on the road to face Oregon St in the civil war in a couple of weeks.

    Lets say all 3 of these teams lose a game.

    This opens up Florida to come in the back door and face Bama in the title game. So hypothetically, Florida may have done themselves a favor by losing to Georgia. Had they beaten Georgia, they would clearly be ranked #2 going into the SEC title game, but would have to face Bama then. A loss in that game would eliminate Florida from a rematch in the BCS title game even if all the other teams lose a game.

    But, now with Georgia stepping up to take that loss in the SEC championship, Florida could be sitting there ranked #2 before that SEC title game is even played if those other 3 teams drop a game.

    In other words, if I were a gator fan(thankfully Im not) I would be fine with Georgia winning out. I really want no part of playing Bama in the SEC title game. Whats the point? Its really Florida's best and only real path to the BCS title game. Have Georgia win the rest of their regular season games while Oregon, K State, and ND all drop a game.

    Really, its almost a shame LSU cant get the rematch like Bama did last year. That was a great game and we all know that was the two best teams in the country. Well, those of us with sense do. Some people love the Oregon hype. Having 2 losses kills LSU's hopes though.






    So which teams do you think will make it, if any, of that group guys? Post your thoughts here.

    Id say ND is the most likely to lose even though they only play one more decent team in USC. ND just isnt that good.

    Oregon is next likely to lose IMHO because they have a couple of road games left in the conference.

    K State I think will win out. They could lose, but I dont see who is going to beat them.

    One of those teams will likely win out though and suffer a massive beat down by NICK SABAN in the BCS championship.

    I'll pass on watching 2 SEC teams battle it out with McCarron vs. whatever horrific QB the other team is trotting out. Same with Notre Dame. At least Oregon or KSU makes it interesting. Neither will win, but neither will any of the overrated SEC teams like Florida, Georgia, and LSU. But we all know those will be snoozefests with horrendous QB's.

    At this point it looks like the Gators can do no worse than the Citrus Bowl (refuse to call it by that other name) which is just fine with me after how awful our last two seasons have been. And there's an outside shot at the Sugar Bowl. We won't be playing in the SEC title game as that would require a Georgia loss to Awfulburn. But if you had told me at the beginning of the season that we would in all likelihood be 10-1 going into Tallacrappy I would have laughed at you. I just wish that loss could have been to someone like A&M or LSU instead of Georgia.

    I don't think we'll get into the title game either because I really don't see Oregon or K-State losing any of their remaining games. I could see ND dropping one to USC though. I would LOVE to see all four finish the regular season undefeated ensuring maximum chaos and butthurt.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    Bama vs K State would be interesting. K State plays very underrated defense. Not saying they'd win, but I think they have a good enough defense to make the game interesting.

    Oregon would probably be interesting as well, though their defense will probably get beat up.

    Notre Dame's defense is good enough to keep the game close, but the offense would get destroyed by Bama's D. That offense has struggled against Michigan, BYU, Stanford, and Pittsburgh all at home. They'll get murdered by the Bama D on a neutral field.

    And just for fun, while Louisville would have no shot at winning, I would love to see Teddy Bridgewater and Charlie Strong (both of whom I think are special) go up against an elite opponent.

    I think Bama is gonna win the national title, but I think K State and Oregon would be more interesting than given credit for.

    How about a mediocre opponent? Loserville getting blasted in the Carrier Dome by the Cuse.

    So we're going from the Paint Dry Bowl (LSU v. Alabama) to the No Defense Bowl (Oregon v. KState). Playoff can't get here soon enough.

    Then again, something else entirely might happen.

    Roll Tide.
