    Longshot: BCSNCG could be Bama vs Florida/LSU/SCar

    Looking at the new BCS rankings that were just released, there's a small possibility that the NCG could be SEC vs SEC again. How it could happen:

    Oregon finishes the regular season undefeated, but goes down to USC in the P12CG
    K-State stumbles in one of their last three games
    ND is defeated by USC in their final game

    Bama vs UGA in the SECCG would knock GA down (assuming we win), which would make Florida #2 (assuming they win out), LSU #2 if Florida drops a game, or S.Car #2 if the previous 2 drop a game.

    Do I think it will happen? Probably not, but it would be fun to play UGA and Florida this season.

    I'm looking for that Nov. 17th weekend to be real interesting. Upsets could happen to allow Florida back into the top 5 again.

    I think UF is the only other SEC team with any shot at all and that is really slim. They would need an impressive win over FSU and for everyone ahead of them to lose.

    LSU & SCar would both have two losses, so there's no way they'd get picked ahead of some non-SEC 1-loss team.

    I was cheering for undefeated teams to lose, mainly because it left a narrow opening for Alabama to lose (for instance if they, Oregon and Notre Dame all lost last week, Alabama would not have fallen far at all) and still play for the NC. Now, I think that point is behind us.

    Personally, I'm hoping Alabama plays Notre Dame. That would be a huge game, and I don't think they are dangerous as Oregon. So, I think I'll be pulling for Notre Dame from here on out. I think Florida might be more dangerous anyway.

    I think we match up better with ND than the Ducks, and, face it, we owe ND big time...

    Speaking of the BCS countdown show, when did David Pollack become so against Bama. Never thought I would say that Jesse Palmer did a better job and has Alabama's back.


    David is sure on his Dawgs pulling an upset in Atlanta to get a chance for the BCSNCG. He does realize this is the same team that almost lost to Kentucky....

    I didn't see the show, what was Pollack saying? From what I've seen in the past, he seems pretty high on KSU.

    Notre Dame going 12-0 and not getting a chance to play for the national championship would be poetic justice from 46 years ago.

    Jesse was saying that Mettenberger made NFL caliber throws and their receivers made one handed impossible catches..etc. Saying that not every team could do that, he wasn't worried about the defense.

    Then David said that we could have been exposed and mentioned all the lsu mistakes. He said that if Georiga played well on all sides of the ball, they could beat Bama and get to the BCSCG.

    I am more concerned about us getting there than who we will play. That said, I was in the Orange Bowl the last time we played Notre Dame. I would really like to see that game.

    The monkey wrench in the whole deal is that both Oregon teams have to lose. One will beat the other obviously but then what?
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart
