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.
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.

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!

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).
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.
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. :/
