    We are if we get better QB play. OTOH, if McCarron plays like has the past two weeks, we're going down.

    That is exactly what I said.

    However, we have to make a huge statement to get in the game with all the anti SEC Sentiment.

    No, we don't. If two of the current top three lose -- which, as you mentioned, is a must -- then beating Georgia in Atlanta will effectively be #2 'Bama beating #3 Georgia in a national championship play-in game.

    Bottom line: If two of the current top three lose, and we go to Atlanta and beat Georgia -- even if it's a 49-48 victory in 5OT -- we are going to Miami.

    I did read your whole post. The reason I "called out" that section is because I don't agree with it. We don't need to make a statement, we just need to win, and 2 out of the 3 need to lose. This is a discussion board, people don't always agree.

    Re: We are not out of it yet

    We are arguably in much better shape right now than we were this time last year after losing to LSU.

    We just need to sit back and enjoy the drama that is about to unfold. This is what makes college football so much fun!

    If we make it back into the BCS top two that will be GREAT!

    If we don't let's clean up the business of getting our 23rd SEC championship.

    With regqard to the supposed SEC fatigue: If we win out and 2 out of 3 of the teams ahead of us lose, we will go to the NC Game. No one will jump a one loss Bama team that just beat UGA for the SEC championship, regardless of how much SEC fatigue there is out there.

    Re: We are not out of it yet

    All I know is that I'm gonna be the biggest fan of whomever Oregon, KSU, and ND is playing.

    And like BET said, AJ has to play better. Additionally, I'd like to see us re-commit to the power run game and find a way to miraculously force a 3 and out again!!

    What if Oregon, K-State and ND all lose and then we beat Georgia. Could we play A@M or even LSU again?? Not probable but certainly not impossible. Lots of football to play yet.

    Basically, is USC wins out, we're going to the BCSCG. All you Kiffin-haters, suck it up!

    I have absolutely no problem cheering on USC when it means what it does for Alabama.

    Yes, that is impossible.

    Assuming the Mayans-were-right scenario you described play out, the BCSNCG would be 'Bama v. Oregon/Kansas State. It would basically reset the BCS to being as it stood prior to this past weekend.

    LSU and A&M both have two losses, so they are behind Oregon, K-State, ND -- even assuming those teams lose -- and even one-loss Florida (who beat both LSU and A&M head-to-head).

I think K State is destined for the CG but after that anything can happen. The real question is are we really that good? Lets be honest, GA is just as good as LSU IMHO.
    I don't think Georgia's in the same league as LSU. The only reason Georgia is even in the title game is because South Carolina had to play back to back at LSU and Florida. Georgia basically has one huge win and that was an ugly, close, mistake filled debacle against Florida.
    The only other game they've had against a quality opponent was when they got their brains beat out by Carolina.
    Easiest schedule in the SEC in my opinion.

    Re: We are not out of it yet

    I just don't feel that optimistic right now... but this is how I felt last year, so I'm just going to go with it.

    My life is slightly complicated by the fact that I sit next to a Georgia fan in Evidence class who is convinced the bulldogs are going to smoke us. Ugh. :/
