    I agree with this, as well. Avoiding the temptation to "level the playing field" by penalizing historically successful teams and conferences may prove difficult for some people. There are those who would love to claim they are bettering the competitive excitement of college football by publically emasculating big names and passing rules or making decisions that give the "little guy a chance." It won't be hard to appeal to those fans who have never or rarely experienced success by telling them that rules need to be passed to prevent the same group of teams from dominating the title process. It should be clear that the process used by any committee appointed to decide playoff participants is based on objective and measureable data. Their job should be finding the best four (or however many) teams, period. We need to be sure they are selecting a Final Four, not a version of March Madness.

    FSU doesn't have a shot unless....

    Bama loses to the barn, beats UGA, UF loses to FSU, LSU loses to Arky, yada yada yada.

    Not happening.

    Good question - the computers hate them both. Would come down to the human voters - and maybe the Stanford/UCLA game (regular season).

    Re: Can FSU become a BCSCG contender?

    If we beat the Barn and Georgia in the SECCG and Florida beats FSU, is there a chance that Florida can overtake us especially with their Computer Ranking. If they were #3 in the polls and still #2 in the Computer, can they overtake us? If ND were to lose, would Florida be ranked #1 in the Computer?

    And what if ND does lose to USCw? Who moves up? Now, I don't think they will lose to USCw esp. since Barkley is not playing. Would it be Bama vs Florida if they beat FSU and we take care of our business?

    Not unless every other contender loses after them. Lose last and you are out.

    No - You have a commanding lead in the human polls, and are the defending BCS champions. You are ranked 3rd in the computer polls. If ND loses, you jump to second. If you beat GA, you might even go to #1 in the computer polls (probably would). You would be ranked higher than Florida. You control your own destiny.

    If Bama wins out, UF should not be able to pass us. The computers hate FSU and like UGA, so we would pick up on the computer side. UF would need about 45% of the #2 votes over us. A win over #3 UGA, the team that beat UF, shouldn't allow for UF to jump us in their off week. Human voters would need to hop UF up to 2 THIS upcoming week.
