Wow. Laundry detergent. So clever.

Fun fact: Tide laundry detergent was introduced in 1946. The Alabama Crimson White began referring to themselves as the Crimson Tide in 1907. So who is named after who?

Ha! My LSU friends like to call Bammer laundry detergent. It is juvenile (what else would we expect from LSWhoo fans) but it's so stupid it's kinda funny.

The PAC12 is starting to come down to reality too... Look at how Washington has gotten drubbed three straight weeks.

And UCLA laid an egg against Stanford. A loss to Oregon and one other conference loss and UCLA may not be top 25. I think Oregon and Florida State are gonna be closer than people think at #2. personally I think FSU would beat Oregon on a neutral field because of the physical defense. The pac12 teams are just not use to the physicality that occurs in football in the Deep South.

It will be interesting to see the common opponent for Bama and Oregon in Tennessee. even though UT is much better than when they played Oregon... And it's rival for Bama, but it still gives us something to gauge.

I still don't think FSU or Oregon will go unscathed... although FSU has the best shot.

We are looking at a Bama vs Ohio State Natty. Watch...
I think a one loss FSU or Oregon would more impressive than a undefeated Ohio State.

The system sucks, and thankfully, it'll be over and done with next year. But sorry, Oregon will have compiled the better resume if they win out the rest of the way. THe PAC 12 is just stacked this year. FSU fans actually have a better case of overtaking Alabama, given the fact that that ACC has gotten the better of the SEC the last year or two. However, it's going to be a hard sell to get FSU to uproot the 2-time defending champs. Between a rock and a hard place. Best y'all can hope for is for LSU or Mizzou/Carolina to stun Bama. Your best chance might actually be Nov. 9 when LSU goes to Tuscaloosa. The Tigers always play Bama hard there, even when they're the inferior team. Though I'm an SEC'er, I'll pull for LSU and FSU at the same time.

Might be, but an undefeated O State would probably get the nod, unfortunately. Can't have a bunch of angry Buckeye alumni running around the country with butthurt.

Hordes of pissed-off bouncers and truck drivers is a force to be reckoned with.

Just think what will happen should Oregon, Ohio State, Florida State and Alabama all go undefeated.

It's a pretty good possibility right now.

I've heard some things..My SIL went to see Nebraska play at Ohio State last year. The Nebraska kickers were attempting field goals when the OSU band was performing Script Ohio. She said that was one very crowd.
