Current BCS Standings:
2. Kansas St
4. Notre Dame
Let's Delve deeper. Assuming we win out.
2. Kansas St still has TCU, Baylor, Texas
3. Oregon still has Stanford, Oregon State, and the PAC-12 CG
4. Notre Dame still has Boston College, Wake Forest, and USC
5. Georgia still has Auburn, Georgia Southern, Georgia Tech and possible SECCG.
6. Florida still has ULL, Jacksonville St, FSU, and possible SECCG.
What does it all mean? As we stand today UGA will play Bama in the SECCG. After they lose we move up past them. Florida would have to drop any one of their 3 remaining games. That would move us into 5.
All that would need to happen is any one of the undefeated teams to lose and hope our computer score bumps us to 4th. 4th place or higher in the BCS gets an automatic BCS bowl bid as long as other requirements are met. Now if all hell breaks loose circa 2007, WE ARE IN!
Have faith my brethren, we got this!

If we grab a bcs bid somehow it would be a huge year for us considering the youth on this team
No chance at NC... We were SEC Champs that year. Not so much this year. We could sneak in to a BCS game if the games fall the right way. With the injuries and issues that have plagued the team this season they have performed admirably.
Probably not. Most likely not. But this shows the season is not lost, we have a shit ton to be proud of, and we are setup for the long haul with how young our team is.
So a 1 loss Alabama team will fall below a 2 loss LSU team where one of LSU's losses came to the 1 loss Alabama team? Yeah, I got a bridge to sell you might be interested in.
I don't think he's saying that at all. I think he's insinuating that, while very unlikely, it's possible that it could end up Bama #1 and LSU #2.
And I think that would be the case if all hell breaks loose which is not likely but entirely possible:
KState could certainly lose any of those three
Oregon loses to any of those three remaining
Notre Dame could certainly lose to USC (and they may still hang on to #2 but that's not a guarantee)
Georgia could lose to Alabama in Atlanta (and the money says they will)
Florida could (and the odds are they will) lose to Florida State.
That would set it up to be VERY close between LSU and Notre Dame. Let's not forget that Notre Dame needed a terrible call to beat Stanford and had to rush furiously from behind at the last minute to beat a pretty terrible team in Pitt so who knows what happens with BC and Wake?
I don't think anyone has any grand designs about it actually happening but, you can't say it absolutely won't happen. Who thought Pitt would beat WVU in '07 and who thought Iowa State would beat OK St last year?
Take care of our business and we have an excellent shot at the Sugar Bowl but I don't think we're mathematically eliminated from anything.
would be an injustice if a 2 loss team got in ahead of other 1 loss bcs teams.
I think at this point, a Sugar Bowl birth would be best case. That being said, that is not a failure year. Would be great to get another BCS bowl win even if it's not a national championship. Geaux Tigers!
Thank you for mentioing Pitt twice. I'm an LSU fan in Pennsylvania, but also follow Pitt. 2 current players on their roster went to my high school.
Now back to SEC football. Please look at the current BCS rankings and notice that 5 of the top 8 teams are from the SEC. The system would not allow it, but it would be the ultimate put up or shut up bowl series if the SEC played the other top 10 teams.
Alabam vs Oregon (tough to say, but they are the most talented teams and have the extra game in December)
LSU vs ND
Florida vs K State
UGa vs Florida State
South Carolina vs L-ville
i would take the SEC team in each game.
We're making a huge assumption that we win out. If you've seen OR, ND, and K-State play this year, and the teams they are playing, this scenario is pretty much pie-in-the-sky. Our chance came Saturday. We will be in either Capital One, Cotton, or (ugh) Chic-Filet Bowl. But anything can happen, and I appreciate your spirit and attitude.
NEVER say NEVER - it's possible
You are right, my friend - NEVER say NEVER. Thanks for the reminder.
Love the positive attitude!
