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.
