I thought so too, until Fisher went on a rant this weekend complaining about his teams ranking. He should have saved that little speech for after and IF he beat the Gators. That may have just been the incentive Fla needed--Advantage Gators...
You know as far as I'm concerned....I would prefer that no one gives Florida a chance to beat FSU.
I'm not sure if Brad Edwards is taking into account the human political aspect - especially if UGA moves up to to #1.
Perhaps, but the computers HATE Oregon. They have played a very weak schedule. If they beat Oregon State, Oregon State will fall in the computers more than Oregon will rise.
If Stanford loses to allow Oregon into the PAC12 CG, the extra game might be enough - especially since it would mean that they would be playing a 10-2 UCLA team that had just defeated Stanford. It is Oregon's shot at redemption in the eyes of the human voters.
Florida, on the other hand, is loved by the computers. If Notre Dame loses, Florida will be #1 in every computer poll.
Oregon beating Oregon State won't help them pass over a Florida team that beats an FSU team. However, Florida will not beat Florida State. No way, no how.
If there was a Big12 championship game it would probably propel Kansas State over Oregon. Oh well.
I really think Oregon will end up playing in Miami. I'd say there's a 70% chance.
I wouldn't give Oregon a 70% chance of playing in the PAC12CG. And with all that was said last year. UF is the only non-champion, other than ND of course, with a snowball's chance of playing in the BCSNCG.
