    I just don't want to see Alabama play Michigan again this season. There is nothing to gain and a lot to lose! Let A & M run up and down the field on the Wolverines!

    If the winner of the SECCG gets the NCG, the loser should then get the Sugar Bowl. I don't know why they give it to the #3 SEC team. Makes absolutely no sense. Sugar Bowl has fallen on hard times.

    The Sugar will lose the SEC champ so do they not get the first pick after UF because of that? Could they possibly make the Sugar an all SEC game?

    Alabama stands to fall down the pecking order quite a bit in the event of a loss this weekend. If Cap One takes LSU, the Cotton will certainly take TAMU. This means that we're looking at a game like the Outback, Gator, or Chickfila.

    That's not what they said at all. They said that bowl game would most likely have a 10-win Clemson team against a 10-win SEC team.

    No. You can't have three SEC teams in BCS bowls.

    This is a strange year with all the 2 loss teams. And the SEC was suppose to be down this year.



    When the playoffs come into play, will there still be a limit of teams in the big bowls from a certain conference?

    Just because Florida isn't playing in the SEC Championship Game doesn't make them the #3 team in the SEC. We didn't play in the SEC Championship Game last year and nobody thought we were the #3 SEC team.

    Guys, calm down, this is a Georgia problem. Who cares if they end up in the Chik-Fil-A bowl, I know I don't.

    Because the Sugar Bowl doesn't want a team coming off a loss. As poor as the match-up will be, regardless, they don't want the perception of it being a "consolation prize".

    The Sugar Bowl will likely have no choice. UF is at 4 now and would pass UGA after a loss to Alabama. At #3, UF would be an automatic qualifier and the second SEC team in the BCS bowls. The Sugar Bowl wouldn't bypass UF to pick a non-SEC team.

    Well they can wish all they want, but the Sugal Bowl has been a consolation prize ever since the BCS championship game was added as a separate game.
