I think being 1st in the computers will prevent that. Even if you swap with Bama in the Harris and USA they are 5th right now in the computers.

If Bama doesn't fail against Auburn and then annihilates UGA in the SECCG, don't be shocked when you see them playing for the crystal ball.

If they play for the NC and we have two undefeated teams left, then there is no doubt there is a huge bias in the polls.

It may be bias but it wouldn't exactly be unjust.

Remind me again, which conference has won the last SIX National Championships?

I'm sorry, I didn't know past events were taken into any of the polls. By that logic, we should hand the #1 ranking to Michigan every year.

No SEC team has done enough this year to earn a spot in the NC game over an undefeated KSU, Notre Dame, or Oregon. None of these teams are a TCU or Boise State or Utah or Houston or Hawaii. They've played a BCS schedule just like everybody else. The SEC is not strong enough this year to earn their conference champion a spot over an undefeated BCS team.

Now, if Alabama was undefeated, or if two of these teams (or hell, if all three) lose a game? I don't think it would be a question at all that they would go. However, Alabama really hasn't done all that much this year. Michigan was a fraud from the beginning, they barely beat a two-loss LSU, and A&M outplayed them pretty much all game.

Well we can sit here and play "what if" all we want, but nobody cares. This discussion isn't about SEC vs. Big 12 vs. Big Ten vs blah blah blah. It's Alabama vs the three undefeated BCS teams.

That two loss LSU is also one of the best teams in the country. An SEC schedule on top of beating LSU in Death Valley is enough to put them ahead of most undefeated teams. If all 3 undefeated teams and Alabama win out, I would definitely put Alabama ahead of ND and Oregon.

first Notre dame has almost lost multiple times to terrible teams they don't deserve to be up there.


If alabama destroys georgia in the sec championship they should leap frog 2 of those teams, they are easily better than all 3.

...it's not like Oregon is alone in the ****ty wins/schedule category this year.



Edit:
Now, also, consider this: Oregon has played their starters only once for an entire game, because they're blowing people out. It's not like they're struggling (like ND does) against their ****ty competition. They're not pulling out last-minute comebacks (Florida), or only winning by two points (LSU), against poor teams.

Highlighted the key word for you. Show me a team that won the NC that didn't have close games.

Who gives a **** about Georgia and SCAR? Neither team should be playing in the NC. Comparing Oregon's schedule to those two teams shows what exactly?

Showing that if Alabama beats Georgia, it shouldn't be counted as a "big win", worthy of jumping an undefeated team.

If pitt takes you to over time and the only reason you win is because the reffs give you the game you don't belong in the championship talk... end of story.

Dot.


Edit- this is why I wouldn't be upset if Oregon barely scrapes by their last few games and is leapfrogged.

I'm going to laugh when Oregon loses to Stanford and ND loses to USC...

I would be very surprised if Bama leaps anyone. With that being said, I think they would beat the top 3 9 times out of 10. Shouldn't lose though.

Pitt is a rivalry. It was also after a 30-13 road win over #8 Oklahoma. How much more of a trap game does it need to be?

You agree that ND shouldn't be in the NC yet you wouldn't be upset if they leapfrogged you? Or are you talking about Bama and their crappy wins (that are still better than any of Oregon's wins)?
