    Re: How far do we drop?

    I'm thinking 4th , but see no difference in placing 4th or 5th .

    No way aTm is a #15 team ... not the way they played tonight. Anyone that thinks that does not watch SEC football.

    Re: How far do we drop?

    TAMU should have been ranked higher.
    My opinion is we fall in somewhere behind the unbeaten teams.
    Depending on the polls we could even be slammed down to #7, but I'm expecting us to be 4 or 5.

    All year long we've got each team's best. We are tired and injured.
    I hope we can rest the 1s & 2s some, next week, then beat Auburn... Then on to Atlanta.
    The SEC Championship will be another physical game.

    4th. Even if they go to 5th they will get a chance to beat uga. NCG not completely out of question just need 2 of the 3 unbeaten to go down. I don't like lame kiffen and USC, but I will have to pull for them against ND and Oregon. Also, I think the barn and Uga games have to be statement games saying that bama does belong in NCG.

    Huh? Georgia got absolutely hammered by South Carolina in a game that wasn't even as close as the score. We lost by five to a team that has been as hot as a fire cracker lately. Last week and this week we made a lot of mistakes and helped the opposing teams look even better than they played; however, there is no way that Georgia's loss wasn't worse than ours. That being said, people may still put Georgia at number four simply because they have looked better the last few weeks. As you said, though, we will get a chance to take care of the Dawgs as long as we whip Auburn in a few weeks.

    I do think that we need to wipe the floor (field) with Auburn, but any win over a top five Georgia will be good enough to get us in the title game as long as two of the three unbeatens also lose. I don't think a one loss K-State, Notre Dame, or Oregon would go over a one loss Bama. We just have to take care of our business, which we didn't do yesterday, and hope two of those three slip up. Just like the last two years, we controlled our own destiny until November. We now have to do our thing and hope for the best as far as the national title is concerned. We can still win more games than we won last year and win a SEC championship, which would be a great season. Roll Tide!

    Re: How far do we drop?

    Our Title game hopes went away with that interception with a minute & half left at BDS.

    Team had better be concerned with W Carlonia & then API. We beat API we get Ga which gets us to the Sugar.

    The Nation is tired of an SEC team in the title match, no way we get in even if The Duck, ND, KSU lose one but I don't see that happening to all 3.

    At home 1st & goal at our 6 with a chance to win with a little under 2 minutes left, Championship Teams win these games.

    Re: How far do we drop?

    I think we will be #5 in the BCS. We just need to refocus, win the last two, and let the chips fall where they may. Unless something unforeseen happens, which we all know it can, it will be Oregon and K-State in Miami. I just hope we win out, beat Gawja in ATL, and then stomp Notre Dumb in the Sugar Bowl. That would be the perfect end to a season without winning the NC of course. RTR!

    Be a big Texas and USC fan the next two weeks. Not impossible.

    FWIW Sagarin still has Alabama #1. The win-loss-only (no margin of victory) ranking is #9.
