Do you think a one loss SEC team can play in the national title this year (pretty much meaning Alabama vs. Florida). This is with the assumption that Texas drops a game (highly unlikely) and lets say Florida loses a close one against Alabama. Do you think they could jump TCU, Cinci, and Boise. This is somewhat reminiscent of the 2006 national title talks (Ohio State vs. Michigan) and Florida blew that up.

It wouldn't be matter of jumping anyone. How far would they fall?

For sure the loser of the SECCG would fall further than #2.

The BCS CG will never be a rematch of a CCG. Well, lets hope not. LOL.

I think USCe keeps it close @ home against UF. I kind of like the matchup.

FWIW I don't have UT in the BCS CG, I really think that they drop one before the final BCS standings come out. Against an obvious inferior opponent of course. JMSO.

No...it would make the BCS more of a sham than it is, one of the undefeateds would move up somehow.

I'm just curious because in 2007...LSU had two losses and i believe Boise St. went undefeated...although they did go on to barely beat Oklahoma (excellent game). Boise got the shaft in that deal so who is it really hard to believe that TCU (they look legit), Cincy, or Boise (again) won't get the shaft again

woops, that was 2006, the year Boise beat Oklahoma, but that year a one loss Florida did sneak into the Championship game over Boise.

No way does a one loss SEC team go to the NC game, a couple of teams would have to lose including Texas, and that isn't going to happen.

It could happen in theory, especially after USC got their butts handed to them last weekend.

But in the current situation I don't see it happening at all. Alabama or Florida would have to lose a regular season game. I don't see that happening to either. Of course the team winning the SEC championship wins out, anyway. So say Alabama loses a regular season game but beats Florida. Alabama would progress but they would have fallen so hard in the regular season loss, especially this late in the season, that it would probably be Texas versus another BCS conference team like Cincy or Georgia Tech. I don't see Bama progressing with a regular season loss but I guess it could happen with a win over Florida.

People are still overlooking the BIG regular season rivalry games coming up...Alabama-Auburn, Florida-FSU, Texas-Texas A&M. There is still football to be played prior to the national championship - don't write anyone in yet.
