    Well I'm not too bummed about ND beating USC. I didn't think USC realistically had a shot at winning that game anyway. If Barkley was playing I might have gotten my hopes up.

    But with the way our last two season have gone I will gladly take an 11-1 record against what was easily one of the toughest schedules in the nation and a spot in the Sugar Bowl. Georgia should be very thankful the SEC allowed them to avoid Bama, LSU, and A&M in the regular season.

    But winning that Sugar Bowl would be some serious momentum going into next season. We're losing some really good players like Bostic and Gillislee, but with Jones breaking out against FSU last night and Fred Taylor's kid coming in next year who's a total stud our backfield will be deep as hell so losing Gilislee won't hurt all that bad. If most of our juniors come back next year this team will be dangerous.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    It's harder to win the SEC Championship than it is to win the national title. That's just the way it is.

    BCS scenarios as season winds down

    Whoever wins the SEC has got to be at least a 14 point favorite and it wouldn't surprise me if it was substantially higher.

    Just for the sake of argument:
    How far would Notre Dame go in an 8 team playoff?
    Once Dmac is drafted a Dmac Jersey will spontaneously materialize in the closet of each and every Dolfan...

    ...and not that replica crap either...

    A team can always go far with a defense like that. Notre Dame is a team that tends to play up to the level of their competition.

    If there's one thing I've learned in my time... don't underestimate the element of a team's chemistry. The Irish have that going for 'em.

    When you get to biggest games on the biggest stages where the pressure is highest, they aren't won on talent. They're won by execution. The team that executes will win every time.

    This will be the case in the SEC title game and the national championship.
