Oh, no way! If the Tide does what they are absolutely capable of, yeah, they move up. Perhaps my wording didn't make that clear. Bama even moved up in the poll this week, as OU looks so vulnerable, but keeps winning. I think Okla State is going to get them in Bedlam.So you are saying if Bama wins out and beats the number 1 team in the SECC game they don't deserve to move up from the number 4 spot?
But, if 2 undefeateds stll remain, after conference title games (let's say Cincy, Michigan/Mich State, and UGA has just one loss (to Bama in SEC title game), Bama is as high up as they are going to go, at #3. I expect an undefeated Big 10 champ, if that happens, to leapfrog Bama, prior to conference championship week, with the expectation that it will all sort itself out with UGA and Bama playing one another.
The Big 10 is holding the keys to it all, at the moment, but it's a very light grip. The winner of Mich/Mich State this week becomes the favorite to get into the CFP (knowing full well that Mich is still to face a surging OSU, and also win a conference title game).
