Unlike pretty much everyone else on earth, I'm a fan of the BCS and enjoy making projections. Feel free to make your own or comment on what I've got.

Alabama (13-0) vs. Notre Dame (12-0)

-I'm always uncomfortable predicting two undefeated teams, but these look like reasonable bets considering the remaining games, especially Alabama.

Important games (Alabama): @LSU, SEC Championship Game
Important games (Notre Dame): Stanford, BYU, @Oklahoma, @USC


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/Vizio_Rose_Bowl.jpg

Nebraska (10-3) vs. Oregon (12-1)

-The Big Ten really wishes they could have Ohio State. You could pick a team out of Nebraska, Michigan, Michigan State, or Wisconsin. Nebraska has Michigan at home, and I think has the best team overall, so they get the nod.

-With all of the tough games Oregon has left, including the Pac-12 championship game, I just don't see them going undefeated. They'll slip up once, putting them here.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/88/Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg.png

West Virginia (11-1) vs. Boise State (11-1)
-Same story with West Virginia as I had for Oregon. I think they beat K-State but lose to Oklahoma, winning the Big 12 and putting them here.

-Boise State isn't the same great team this year, but they should still run the table. I think with the Big Ten clearly not getting two bids this year, that opens up a spot for Boise State (I also think the Pac-12 beats itself up and loses key games to Notre Dame)



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/3c/Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg.png

Florida (11-2) vs. Kansas State (11-1)

-Florida, South Carolina, or LSU all will have a shot for that second spot. I've been riding Florida all year, and I'll keep it up for now.

-Kansas State loses to West Virginia, and thus loses the Big-12, but runs the table otherwise. This would be a good game.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b6/2011_Orange_Bowl.svg/155px-2011_Orange_Bowl.svg.png

Florida State (11-2) vs. Cincinnati (11-1)

-The ACC sucks so bad this year, but Florida State is still clearly the best in the bunch. I think they lose to Florida but otherwise run the table, having already blown their annual game. I don't doubt that they could also lose to Boston College next week, however.

-The Big East actually has three pretty decent teams in Cincy, Rutgers, and Louisville. I like Munchie and the Bearcats the most, however.

not disagreeing with you, but what two teams do you think Florida loses to? if you have them in the Sugar Bowl, I'm assuming Alabama in the SECG is one of the two. as for the other loss, I can't see SCar, UGA, or FSU beating this UF team after this past weekend. then again, we aren't sure just how overrated LSU is/was...

Alabama is one. Between the three games you mentioned, I think they lose one more. I just have a hard time seeing Florida or SCAR running the table over the next 6-7 games, and I don't think anyone beats Bama. Sadly.

I'm interested to see how Miss St. does against them (though I doubt it will even be close). they've looked good so far, albiet against absolute trash competition, but from we've already seen LSU and Texas A&M don't pose much of a threat

Florida could certainly beat us, but I think you're going a bit too far in saying you can't even imagine us beating you, because it most certainly could happen. Just as you beat #3 ranked LSU, we absolutely smashed #5 ranked Georgia. The truth is we beat very talented but overrated teams. Its a bit much to say that judging by either performance this weekend that one is a clear class above the other. We're the top two teams in the SEC East, and we won't know who is actually better until two weekends from now.

I don't see Notre Dame going undefeated. I think they have beaten flawed teams and haven't really played anyone that deserves to be in the top 10.

The defense is for real, but the offense has only shown proficiency against bad defenses.

I'll rephrase, I think Stanford, USC, and Oklahoma are better teams than they have played so far. I don't think those teams are great either, but if ND does get to the National Championship they will be destroyed in the game.

yeah but I was confident that UGA was severely overrated coming into this season and their lackluster game against the Vols confirmed that for me. as dominant as South Carolina was, they beat a Georgia team that isn't all that impressive.

you could easily say the same for Florida's win over LSU, but the Gators killed a team with a dominant defensive line at the line of scrimmage. if USC does the same, I'll probably see things differently

Sounds good for the most part, and some of the match ups sound really good, but I can't see Notre Dame going undefeated. A team with a consistent passing offense is going to roast them. Their run game is great but Golson and Rees aren't good enough passers and both would probably turn it over a few times in a shoot out. Can't see them winning at USC. I'd probably put Oregon in the NC and have SCar in over UF (and maybe Rutgers over Cincy but that's a toss up for me). BCS games look like they could be pretty decent besides whatever game the Big10 winner is playing in.

The only way the SEC gets 3 bids is if they get 2 in the NC, which is not going to happen this year.

The 2nd team out of the Pac 12 is pretty much a lock to get one. If Louisiana Tech or Ohio can stay undefeated, they might steal the last spot.

Unless the rules changed from last year, there is no way for a conference to have 3 BCS bids.

I don't think that is true. I remember them talking about it on Sports Radio down here in Alabama. They were talking about the rules and said that the rules state that only two teams from each conference can make the BSC. However, it also says that the two teams ranked 1-2 in the final rankings go to the Championship. So if 1-2 are in the same conference but neither is the conference champion (which would be highly unlikely), three teams can make it.

sbh15
10-09-2012, 03:05 PM
No more than two teams from a conference may be selected, regardless of whether they are automatic qualifiers or at-large selections, unless two non-champions from the same conference are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the final BCS Standings.

according to Pat Forde, Florida would be #1 in the BCS if it were released today:

A lot can change this weekend, but as of right now the computers rank the top five this way (throwing out the high and low ratings for each team, per the BCS formula):

Florida (1). Difference from the USA Today coaches poll: plus-five spots. The microchips are impressed by the four Southeastern Conference victories – well, at least by three of them. Beating Kentucky probably doesn't do much for the strength of schedule.

Notre Dame (2). Difference from the USA Today coaches poll: plus-five spots. The Fighting Irish benefit from having played four major-conference opponents – if indeed the Big Ten counts as a major conference in 2012. And they could conceivably move up to the computer top spot with a victory over highly ranked Stanford on Saturday.

South Carolina (3). Difference from the USA Today coaches poll: none. The Gamecocks could leapfrog the Irish and the Gators with a computer-pleasing victory at LSU on Saturday.

West Virginia (4). Difference from the USA Today coaches poll: none. Beating Texas on the road was a big boost.

Alabama (5). Difference from the USA Today coaches poll: minus-four spots. The two big September games turned out to be blowouts of disappointing teams – Michigan and Arkansas – and the rest of the schedule has been easy.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ncaaf--forde-yard-dash--computers-crunching-funny-numbers-with-first-bcs-poll-on-its-way.html

Based on this, my predictions for the first BCS standings (based on next week's games):

1) South Carolina Gamecocks (W vs #9 LSU)
2) Notre Dame Fighting Irish (W vs #17 Stanford)
3) Florida Gators (W vs Vanderbilt)
4) Alabama Crimson Tide (W vs Missouri)
5) West Virginia Mountaineers (W vs Texas Tech)

It's a shame it's not possible for Alabama to go undefeated and not get in the top two spots. That'd be a great time on here.

And I'm glad BCS recognizes that Oregon hasn't beaten anyone yet. They have a few notable games remaining, but a very easy schedule.

I'd love to know where OSU would be at, obviously had a very easy schedule. Biggest wins were Nebraska and Michigan State. I'm gonna guess 6 or 7.

49erNation85
10-12-2012, 11:50 PM
Would be sweet to have the Gators ranked #1 again. If we do end up with two loses South Carolina and some one else then that is still a way better record that the last 2 to 3 season since Tebow left. Which it does take time to rebuildia team with new talent. But hoping we could go undefeated would be sweet and I'm praying we do or at least just with one lose....

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/2013_BCS_National_Championship_Game_logo.gif

Alabama (13-0) vs. Notre Dame (12-0)

-I'm always uncomfortable predicting two undefeated teams, but these look like reasonable bets considering the remaining games, especially Alabama.

Alabama will go undefeated, they won the NC last year in a game they didn't belong in and this year's team is far better at QB.


Important games (Alabama): @LSU, SEC Championship Game
Important games (Notre Dame): Stanford, BYU, @Oklahoma, @USC

ND will not go undefeated, I see 2 losses in their future. Really tough schedule.
Oregon or Kansas St. will be a much better game.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/Vizio_Rose_Bowl.jpg

Nebraska (10-3) vs. Oregon (12-1)

-The Big Ten really wishes they could have Ohio State. You could pick a team out of Nebraska, Michigan, Michigan State, or Wisconsin. Nebraska has Michigan at home, and I think has the best team overall, so they get the nod.

-With all of the tough games Oregon has left, including the Pac-12 championship game, I just don't see them going undefeated. They'll slip up once, putting them here.

Whoever makes it from the Big 10, likely Michigan because Nebraska just is too weak, will get slaughtered whoever they play.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/88/Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg.png

West Virginia (11-1) vs. Boise State (11-1)
-Same story with West Virginia as I had for Oregon. I think they beat K-State but lose to Oklahoma, winning the Big 12 and putting them here.

-Boise State isn't the same great team this year, but they should still run the table. I think with the Big Ten clearly not getting two bids this year, that opens up a spot for Boise State (I also think the Pac-12 beats itself up and loses key games to Notre Dame)

Forget Boise St., they are a shell just waiting to be broken and West Virginia may lose too many in the Big 12 with that defense.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/3c/Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg.png

Florida (11-2) vs. Kansas State (11-1)

-Florida, South Carolina, or LSU all will have a shot for that second spot. I've been riding Florida all year, and I'll keep it up for now.

-Kansas State loses to West Virginia, and thus loses the Big-12, but runs the table otherwise. This would be a good game.

Kansas St. just might face Alabama. Snyder eats teams like West Virginia alive.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b6/2011_Orange_Bowl.svg/155px-2011_Orange_Bowl.svg.png

Florida State (11-2) vs. Cincinnati (11-1)

-The ACC sucks so bad this year, but Florida State is still clearly the best in the bunch. I think they lose to Florida but otherwise run the table, having already blown their annual game. I don't doubt that they could also lose to Boston College next week, however.

-The Big East actually has three pretty decent teams in Cincy, Rutgers, and Louisville. I like Munchie and the Bearcats the most, however.

You know, the way it is shaping up, 2 teams from the Big East may well get to the BCS, but I not crazy about Cincy's chances just yet.

Really tough calls this early in the season!!!!

I still hope we beat em and am still holding out hope for a back end way into the NCG but if Oregon makes it vs. Alabama, it'll be a game. This isn't the same Oregon team that played Auburn and LSU.

Their defense is MUCH improved and no defense can completely stop Oregon, just slow them down.

But whatever, hopefully we can make it in over them.

Let's try this un otro vez!

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/2013_BCS_National_Championship_Game_logo.gif

Alabama (13-0) vs. Oregon (13-0)

-Alabama is great, blah blah blah....

-Well, nobody has lost yet, but now the question is who will be #2 if everyone remainds undefeated. Notre Dame appears to be mathematically out of this equation, so now it's a squeaker between Oregon and Kansas State.

Important games (Alabama): Texas A&M, SEC Championship Game
Important games (Oregon): Stanford, @Oregon State, Pac12 Game




http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/3c/Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg.png

Florida (11-1) vs. Oklahoma (10-2)

-Well, the loss to Georgia ruined Florida's shot at a national or SEC championship, but it did very little to keep them out of the BCS. If they win against Florida State, they're in at 11-1.

-If Oklahoma can finish out the season with 2 losses, they are a lock for the BCS. If they lose, **** gets really, really complicated.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b6/2011_Orange_Bowl.svg/155px-2011_Orange_Bowl.svg.png

Florida State (11-2) vs. Louisville (11-1)

-The ACC sucks so bad this year, but Florida State is still clearly the best in the bunch. I think they lose to Florida but otherwise run the table, having already blown their annual game. But, this is Florida State, so they'll probably blow it again.

-I predict that Cincy beats Rutgers, and Rutgers beats Louisville, thus leaving the Big East as a three-way tie. Louisville will likely still be ranked the highest in this scenario and get the nod.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/88/Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg.png

Kansas State (12-0) vs. Notre Dame (12-0)
-The BCS should really hope that both Notre Dame and Kansas State lose. It could happen, but I don't think it's better than 50% to happen.

-This would be about as close to a semi-final game as you can get in the BCS.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/Vizio_Rose_Bowl.jpg

Nebraska (10-3) vs. Oregon State (10-2)

-Nebraska won their pivotal game against Michigan. They could still slip up, but they're in the driver's seat now.

-With Boise State losing (and Nebraska winning) this gets really complicated. There are no other realistic non-AQ teams left (La. Tech is about as close as it gets), which means that the last BCS team is likely either going to be Clemson, or a second team from the Pac12 (Oregon State or Stanford). This makes next week's game between Oregon State and Stanford especially important as a likely elimination game.

-I'll predict Clemson to lose to South Carolina, and Oregon State to win one of their games against Stanford/Oregon, leaving them at 10-2 and in the Rose Bowl.

If Rutgers goes undefeated, they definitely deserve to go to a BSC Bowl, even without the Big East's automatic bid. But the Championship Game? I don't think so. Even if they are the only undefeated team left, I doubt they are ranked in the top two.

MassNole
10-22-2012, 11:00 AM
If Clemson wins out (and FSU doesn't trip up vs. VT), the ACC could very easily have 2 BCS bids again. No way the Fiesta Bowl would choose Rutgers over Boise State either, looking at travel and attendance that would be as good of a decision as the ACC adding Pitt and Syracuse.

They are pretty much 2007 Kansas, even if they are undefeated they have zero chance of getting in over a 1 loss team from any other conference.

EDIT
I know Kansas didn't go undefeated that year, but even if they had it wouldn't have mattered and they were the closest team I could think of to this Rutgers team. Perhaps 2009 Cincy would be more apt.

I don't think Scotty or I are thinking we're getting into the NC game. Like Shane just said everyone would need 2 losses. I'm fine with that I just want to get to the BCS and show everyone on the national stage we are for real. Perception always kills even when it's not true.

Rutgers int any BCS game would travel well. In 2006 we sent 35,000 people to the Texas Bowl. If we go BCS I would see something similar but probably 40K.

Going into Arkansas and playing that team is still a good W. The Big East is better than the ACC and you don't hear the same knocks on them. It's funny how Forenci has to knock Rutgers at every turn now.

ULM went into Arkansas and won as well, so basically you're saying Rutgers is on par with ULM. Arkansas was a preseason Top 10 team, but could possibly be the worst preseason Top 10 team of the past 30 years.

Because the Big East gets an automatic bid. Even if they didn't, Rutgers would get in if they go undefeated.

Well I know they get the automatic bid, which is silly considering how awful the Big East is. I was just speaking generally, though. West Virginia would steam roll them.

Yeah Arkansas is pretty bad. I just knock it because most Rutgers fans annoy me. I did the same thing when everyone was freaking out when Schiano was bringing them to life. They had an awfully easy schedule then, just like they do now. I just am annoyed at how good people think Rutgers is when their schedule is a joke.

If Rutgers was in the ACC or didn't play an absurdly easy schedule they wouldn't be close to the discussion of being BCS worthy.

I mean, UConn shouldn't have been in a BCS bowl either. We weren't anywhere near that good. A product of a flawed system.

Our team this year and in 2006 was light years ahead of the team you sent to the BCS game 2 years ago. It's not even a comparison. The Big East had a winning record against the ACC this year, at worst the 2 conferences are equal. We schedule a top 10 SEC team on the road and it's our fault they're not living up to the hype? Fine we still went down there into a 70K stadium and won the game. The non bias computers have us higher than the voters. You're not watching the games so you have no idea what you're talking about. The Rutgers defense is for real and would keep in any game sans probably Oregon and a few others.

well, we'd beat nc St, so we're better than FSU at least.

And let's cool down the rutgers undefeated talk. Makes me uneasy.

We're not saying RU to the title game but the big east isn't as awful this year in comparison with the big 10 and acc struggling.

And that uconn team that went a few years ago was putrid. We beat them that year and we were awful that season.

Haha, I mean, I've seen several games. I'm not sure why you assumed I was comparing you to the UConn team of two years ago. I didn't. Merely stated that they too were unworthy of a BCS game. Clearly this team is much better than the UConn squad, but UConn still had quite a bit of talent on defense. I mean, you yourself said that UConn this year was probably the toughest defense you'll face for the rest of season. How sad is that?

If you seriously think this defense could keep them in any game outside of Oregon your homer shades are worse than I thought. There are any number of teams that would wreck the Rutgers defense.

It's not your fault you schedule one good team and they sucked, but hey, they were overrated and ended up sucking. I can't give you credit for beating a crap team because they weren't supposed to be crap. Maybe try scheduling more than one "tough" OOC game?

And you can use any conference you want. I was just trying to be nice putting you in with the ACC. The SEC would wreck Rutgers. I just didn't want to use that comparison because I don't think it's fair.

Sorry, I just can't take a team seriously that schedules one quality opponent and dominates an sub par conference. I'm not saying they're a bad team by any means but they're certainly far from great.

Aren't guys like 60th in strength of schedule? And that's over teams in even worse conferences who play crappy conference opponents with consistency.

I said Oregon and a few other teams. I'm not going to list every offense in college that I think can put points up on us. We have multiple NFL players on the D and it's as good an indicator as any that the D is for real. I guess I did overrate the UConn D but whatever not much I can say there. I just want to win the Big East and show everyone on a national stage we're a good team. The SEC would wreck pretty much any team so that's not fair. I don't think we are a contender for the national championship so I don't even know why you think that's what we are saying.

For the record, I think Florida would destroy Rutgers in that game, so I think there's a decent argument to be made for what he's saying. Rutgers is feasting on a really easy schedule (honestly, Arkansas on the road?)

But you could make the same case for Nebraska, Florida State, and Boise State too, so I'm not sure why you singled them out.

10-22-2012, 01:59 PM
If Clemson wins out (and FSU doesn't trip up vs. VT), the ACC could very easily have 2 BCS bids again. No way the Fiesta Bowl would choose Rutgers over Boise State either, looking at travel and attendance that would be as good of a decision as the ACC adding Pitt and Syracuse.
There's an obvious cache that comes with being undefeated, especially over an 11-1 Boise State team.

Not buying Clemson. At all. They'll lose again because they always do. Thus is the nature of the ACC.

Haha, that's fine. I think it's more than just a few, but I suppose it depends on what your definition of a few is. I just don't think you guys are that special/great. And that's why I didn't use the SEC as an example. I don't think you guys would do well in the Pac-12, either.

I was arguing against you being in a BCS bowl, not the national championship game. There are other teams (as BF mentioned) who probably shouldn't be in it either due to their competition being inferior.

Clearly the voters agree with you not being worthy or you'd be ranked much higher.

Let's try this un otro vez!

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/2013_BCS_National_Championship_Game_logo.gif

Alabama (13-0) vs. Oregon (13-0)

-Alabama is great, blah blah blah....

-Well, nobody has lost yet, but now the question is who will be #2 if everyone remainds undefeated. Notre Dame appears to be mathematically out of this equation, so now it's a squeaker between Oregon and Kansas State.

Important games (Alabama): Texas A&M, SEC Championship Game
Important games (Oregon): Stanford, @Oregon State, Pac12 Game




http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/3c/Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg.png

Florida (11-1) vs. Oklahoma (10-2)

-Well, the loss to Georgia ruined Florida's shot at a national or SEC championship, but it did very little to keep them out of the BCS. If they win against Florida State, they're in at 11-1.

-If Oklahoma can finish out the season with 2 losses, they are a lock for the BCS. If they lose, **** gets really, really complicated.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b6/2011_Orange_Bowl.svg/155px-2011_Orange_Bowl.svg.png

Florida State (11-2) vs. Louisville (11-1)

-The ACC sucks so bad this year, but Florida State is still clearly the best in the bunch. I think they lose to Florida but otherwise run the table, having already blown their annual game. But, this is Florida State, so they'll probably blow it again.

-I predict that Cincy beats Rutgers, and Rutgers beats Louisville, thus leaving the Big East as a three-way tie. Louisville will likely still be ranked the highest in this scenario and get the nod.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/88/Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg.png

Kansas State (12-0) vs. Notre Dame (12-0)
-The BCS should really hope that both Notre Dame and Kansas State lose. It could happen, but I don't think it's better than 50% to happen.

-This would be about as close to a semi-final game as you can get in the BCS.



http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/Vizio_Rose_Bowl.jpg

Nebraska (10-3) vs. Oregon State (10-2)

-Nebraska won their pivotal game against Michigan. They could still slip up, but they're in the driver's seat now.

-With Boise State losing (and Nebraska winning) this gets really complicated. There are no other realistic non-AQ teams left (La. Tech is about as close as it gets), which means that the last BCS team is likely either going to be Clemson, or a second team from the Pac12 (Oregon State or Stanford). This makes next week's game between Oregon State and Stanford especially important as a likely elimination game.

-I'll predict Clemson to lose to South Carolina, and Oregon State to win one of their games against Stanford/Oregon, leaving them at 10-2 and in the Rose Bowl.

In a way it was probably good that Bama won that game last night because that would have really created a cluster####.

As much as we argue this stuff (in good fun i hope) it'll all play itself out. Oregon still has tough games with Stanford and OSU then the Pac-12 title game, your lineup seems like it could be pretty accurate.

The limit of two teams per conference in the BCS really screws things this year. I think Georgia/Florida/LSU/Texas A&M(obviously one of those will play) are more deserving than certain teams that will get the spot.

Saying that, if the top four continue to win out, hopefully they do indeed match up the two that don't make it.

I disagree. The rest of the nation doesn't want to see the all-SEC show. Having teams from the other conferences compete against each other is the only thing that makes the bowl season watchable (hence the really low ratings for the Alabama-LSU game last year)

This is not true. Oklahoma had the lead against K-State going in to the 4th. Notre Dame dominated us more so than K-State. Oklahoma only lead in the first quarter against ND. Then after tying it, ND said hells no, and made the loss look a lot worse.

If it wasn't for Landry Jones' stupid ******* fumble at the 1, it probably would have been a 6-3 game in OU's favor going to the half rather than 10-6 (which was the score going in to half time for both games) in K-State's favor.

Is 41-3 barely now?

Notre Dame's schedule has been better than K-State and Oregon. You can say style points favors the others, that's fine. Just don't make the incorrect argument about schedule. There is a reason they are ranked 1, 2 or 3 in all the computer polls.

Also, Notre Dame dominated the Pitt game in almost every category. Pitt had big plays that put them on the advantage. It was a trap game that Notre Dame was lucky to come out the victor.

Someone already commented about K-State and Notre Dame playing Oklahoma. Oklahoma was off to a good start but after the bad snap by the center they never really got anything going offensively.

You don't go in expecting to rely on those mistakes though, especially quarterbacks fumbling the snap. It was a fumbled snap within the 5 yard line in which K-State had nothing to do with other than the recovery, which you got to hand them that. That kind of turnover to prevent points is pretty lucky.

Yeah I had that originally and changed it. There is a good deal of collusion among the BCS games, so I wonder if the Rose and Fiesta bowls wouldn't work something out to ensure the undefeated matchup.

I would assume the Sugar Bowl would take an SEC team, since it's high heresy in the South to take anything from the North above an SEC team. By gawd.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/2013_BCS_National_Championship_Game_logo.gif

Alabama (12-1) vs. Notre Dame (12-0)

-Pretty simple. Winner of Alabama-Georgia.

-Notre Dame wins and they are in. Notre Dame loses, and all hell breaks loose. Florida would probably get the nod if they beat FSU (though the computers hate FSU, so I'm not sure it would go both ways). Oregon, K-State, and even Notre Dame would still have a chance.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/3/3c/Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Sugar_Bowl_logo.svg.png

LSU (10-2) vs. Oklahoma (10-2)

-At the moment, I'm predicting a Florida State victory over Florida. If that happens, the Sugar Bowl will have their pick of 2-loss teams, and it comes down to picking the local team in LSU, or the potential appeal of Manziel and A&M.

-Oklahoma had a scare against West Virginia, which gives me pause against an improved Oklahoma State team.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/12/Vizio_Rose_Bowl.jpg


Nebraska (10-3) vs. Stanford (11-2)

-Either Nebraska or Wisconsin, and I wouldn't sleep on Wisconsin.


-Impressive stuff by Stanford beating Oregon State and Oregon in consecutive weeks. They now oddly have to beat UCLA twice, but if they do, they're going to the Rose Bowl.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/8/88/Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg/250px-Fiesta_Bowl_logo.svg.png

Kansas State (11-1) vs. Oregon (11-1)
-What happened to K-State was unfortunate, but losing one game doesn't make them a bad team. They'll still win the Big 12 and make the Fiesta Bowl.

-Unless UCLA beats Stanford, Oregon now won't even win the Pac 12. But they will make a BCS bowl game, and head to this former title game matchup.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/b/b6/2011_Orange_Bowl.svg/155px-2011_Orange_Bowl.svg.png

If the game was in Gainesville that might make sense, but it's at Doak Campbell where FSU has won big all year. Their offense is an embarrassment to football, now they'll deal with crowd noise and the #1 defense in the country. Great combination to get a win.

Rutgers/FSU would be a bigger disaster for NJ than Hurricane Sandy.

my god I hope this matchup happens so we can facefuck you so hard that your tonsils end up coming out of your anus and I will rub that **** in your face so hard you'll never want to talk about FSU or football ever again. Sweet chokejob against NC st. Way to live up to your championship team hype for the 100th straight season.

You lost to Kent State, at home You were tied at 7-7 with Army in the 4th quarter at home. As I said, bigger disaster for NJ than Hurricane Sandy.

My god I can't wait to destroy you. And I never **** talk before a game but I hope we match up with you. If this happens and we win, I'm going to spam your inbox every day until you cry and masturbate to Khaseem Greene raping your offense with your tears as lube.

the only disaster will be me rioting from our BCS bowl win. My god I can't wait. Kent State's ranked and better than NCSt so lolololol at your lack of knowledge or being a functioning human being with any use to society

You lost at home to a MAC team who was destroyed by Kentucky. Kentucky, let that sink in a minute, Kentucky, which was their only FBS win of the year. The only convincing win Rutgers has all year is against Temple. Every other game has been a tight contest with some awful team.

Can anyone explain to me why Georgia is ranked higher than Oregon?

Oregon lost in overtime to Stanford while Georgia got absolutely beat the f*** down by South Carolina.

Because its not about who teams lose to, its only about when they lose. If Alabama lost to a scrub team in the 1st three weeks they would have a better shot at a title than if they lost in th SEC cha,pionship. If your team is gonna lose, do it sooner rather than later.

It's not only who you lose too but who you beat. Oregons only quality win of the year is a USC team, and can that even be considered a big win anymore.

Even Big Ten teams have better wins this year than Oregon.

but that's bull because it's all perceived by preseason rankings that the SEC gets overrated on to begin with.

Look at South Carolina's schedule and point out a quality win? Georgia? why? because Georgia was ranked high to begin with?

How bout Georgia? What's their quality win? an overrated Florida team?

And finally: HOW THE F*** WAS TENNESSEE RANKED #23 IN THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON?

No. I hate the SEC, and you can certainly make a case for Oregon over Georgia, but let's not kid ourselves into thinking that Florida is somehow in the same category as USC, Arizona, and Washington.

What's most important in all of this is that in order to make the championship game, Georgia will also have to beat Alabama.

Alabama + Florida > Anything Oregon can do

You said we'd wait to talk about rankings until after Oregon played it's last three games. Well, it took them all of one big game to fail that test.
