    Re: Stepping out on a limb --- I'm predicting Bama in the BCS CG, more...

    It could happen. Last year Alabama lost a frustrating heartbreaker late in the season to a very good football team, and dropped to #4 in the BCS, with 3 undefeated teams ahead of them. Sound familiar? Two weeks later ... right back in it. I mean, sure, you could see Oregon beating Stanford a mile away. But did anybody really expect Oklahoma State to lose to Iowa State (5-4 at the time, including a 35-point shellacking by unranked Missouri)?

    If one of these miracle scenarios - or a different one - plays out, I'll see you in Miami. If not, Nawlins is always a good time. Orlando is okay too, I guess.

    Regardless of what happens, we have to maintain perspective. One would have thought that the Dark Years, the Lost Decade, would have taught us some humility, and not to take success for granted.

    Would normally agree but our team is, unlike this time last yr, trending downward. Our D has been shellacked the last two weeks for over 800 yds of offense, and our O hasn't looked right since the game against State. Oregon, right now, is proving to me that they are the best team in college football, and though upsets can happen frankly I don't see them losing at all, neither do I see K State losing to Texas(Texas almost lost to KANSAS). If both of those likely scenarios come to pass, it's over.

    Right now, I'll be happy if we just win out and win the SEC.

I don't see K state losing to Texas so I think they are in. Oregon has 3 legit tests left. I think Oregon State gets them in Corvalis.

    USC is a bad match up for Notre Dame...I truly believe that Barkley will pull out the win for them... Notre Dames defense is good, but shaky against the pass, and their offense is not nearly as impressive as the offenses in the PAc12, which gives USC a better matchup on D.

    In my mind, we only need Kansas St to lose to Texas, at Texas...which isnt out of the realm of belief.

    Oregon I believe will win out, bot have the toughest schedule with Oregon st, Stanford and the PAC12 championship games left.

    we're definitely still in the picture if we win out.
