It's way too early! And don't you wish the committee meetings were aired? I'm thinking that no two, or more, members should be able to meet without it being recorded.

And they should only say what the current top four are so everyone else isn't influenced.

It's certainly a flawed system but it's so much better than anything before.

True. And the SEC schools will beat each other out of it, anyway.

Way to totally miss my point. The poster I was responding to was talking about how many points SC rang up on Auburn. I pointed out that, in its own way, Arkansas played just as well against Alabama. Thanks for playing.

This is simple if Oregon wins out, they will play Alabama and then that team winner will move on to Florida St. Florida St will NOT win, so either Oregon or Alabama will win the title!!!

I got your point, your point just doesnt make sense.

Oregon and Alabama both have multiple chances to lose before they get to that point.

South Carolina has to be the most manic-depressive team in college football this year. After all, they were totally hosed by TAMU, a team that coughed up 59 to Alabama, and then turned around to best Georgia. If I'm a Gamecock fan, I'm taking some major mood swing drugs. The theory is that Spurrier is now just coaching the games he wants to coach and is calling in the rest.

The thing about the Auburn/SC game is that Spurrier pulled every trick in the book out of his bag, and was also going up against his old DC. Hard to say how that intangible came into play.

Alabama does have the easiest path to the final four, I'll grant you that. But they'll still have to beat Missississippi State, LSU (A team that was left for dead three weeks ago), Auburn, and presumably Georgia to get there.
From the looks of it nobody wants to play defense this year. Kentucky put 31 on Miss St to that matter. I just thought Auburn was a little suspect and could get exposed. You got to factor in the intangibles like Spurrier, he does more with less. South Carolina is playing for its bowl berth life right now and I think at the end any team that came in contact with them, win or loss could be tainted. Georgia falls in this category too.

Don't get me wrong, I like Auburn well enough, more so than Bama. We'll see what cloth their cut from this Sat.

One less chance to Lose for Oregon: Stanford was a breeze last night. Utah may end up being tough. After that, no one left except for Pac 12 championship. Should be in top 4 right now. Alabama has more chances to lose. I can't wait until they play Auburn. The SEC will just eat eachother alive.

FSU has got to be seriously concerned with what they saw the Gators do last night.

To some degree but FSU has a more high power offense then UGA but also FSU will also see this a oppertunity to have a quality win since Florida isn't as bad was thought, but when you have Jameis Winston, they probably wont fear anyone.
