i have this funny feeling that Bama will still be playing in the National Championship game


i dont. Last year turned the nation off the SEC. There is a lot of SEC hate out there and unless there is only 1 unbeaten team, Bama wont make it in. Not sure they deserve it either. Horrible coaching the past 2 games, bad play calling and bad adjustments.


I agree about the SEC hate.....meaning there won't be any leapfrogging of an unbeaten team this year. Alabama will need a couple of teams to lose.

I don't think the SEC is that good collectively this year, and wasn't last year either (minus Alabama, LSU). I knew before the season began that LSU had too many question marks and was too young of a team to be great.

Alabama has surprised me the past two weeks. Being an LSU fan, I didn't expect last weeks game to be close.

But after last week, I did expect TAMU to give a tussle on the road. What I didn't expect was for Alabama to lose.

I don't think there is a clear cut best team ......unlike most years

The football is still great, but it just seems like something is missing this year.....


the proposed 4 team playoff would be great this year.

Agreed....4-team playoff would be perfect this year.

My Badgers just played their way to the B10 championship game. Nebraska has an easier schedule than Michigan. For the Rose bowl, a Wisconsin - Nebraska game will be fun!

Ball needs two TDs in two four games to be the best TD guy in NCAA history. Go Montee!

KSU down 28 going into the 4th, I'd say its over

Hopefully USC beats the Irish next week

FSU obviously reaches the ACC title game

Ksu getting smacked, heavy wears the hat that holds #1, let me tell you.

Oregon getting all they can handle from Stanford. When you actually play defense, Oregon cant run all over you like they do all the other patsies.

Just thinking out loud here.. UF plays the winner of the Bama/GA game for the NC. UF beats FSU and USC beats ND.

Is that the slim chance you're talking about Magicman123?

i did say slim, and the gators will lose to the Noles.. what if Georgia loses to Georgia Tech, and Georgia beats Bama in the SEC CG? both teams will have 2 losses and the gators are sitting pretty, or what if ND goes down and the gators beat FSU? could get very interesting, maybe 2 SEC teams like last year :D

it wont happen, gators are not that good overall anyways, just having fun

Kansas St has had a great year, but they proved that their status was a bit higher than their talent level.

Give 'em credit but I'd expect to see them fall to at least #6, maybe a couple of spots farther down too.

The Baylor win didn't surprise me, but the Oregon loss was shocking.

And yeah, it's tough to stay on top.

I think Notre Dame goes down next week too.....provided Barkley recovers

how is this for a crazy scenario that the nation would hate.

USC beats ND.

UGA beats Bama.

UGA plays UF again for the national title. 2 teams from the SEC, 1 team not even playing for their division and conference championship.

The nation and pundits would go nuts.
