<p> </p>
<p>It's exciting and weird.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>TCU</strong> is home free...they're not going to lose again. They just smoked them <strong>Utah</strong> Youts</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Boise State</strong> never was going to lose a game after they played VT...and they won't<strong>...Hawaii</strong> was in the top 25 in one poll and Boise got 700 yards on them today</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Oregon</strong> looked so good against USC, but I can see longshot upset possibilities by either <strong>Cal</strong> or <strong>Oregon State</strong>....let them lose both...(ok very unlikely...I'm just havin' fun here)</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Alabama</strong> loses to <strong>Mississippi State</strong>, but beats <strong>Georgia State </strong>31-30 in overtime Reb is revived later in the day at Piedmont Hospital.<span style="display:none;"> </span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Auburn</strong> loses to both <strong>Georgia</strong> and <strong>Alabama</strong>....the SEC title game will be <strong>Georgia vs Mississippi State</strong>...nobody cares. (what the Hell...it's been a strange year <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//biggrin.gif" style="width:1px;height:1px;">  )</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BCS Computer churns out some nonsense about the <strong>Akron Zyps</strong>...and then explodes</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BCS game is TCU vs Boise State</strong>.....it's the greatest game ever played, but everyone in the SEC world ( not SE SeaWorld) whines whines and whines some more that they didn't play anybody.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong><em>Dear Lord,</em></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong><em>All I ask out of this wonderful college football season is that TCU and Boise State each  play a traditional powerhouse so we can see if they really are any good or not.</em></strong></p>
<p><strong><em>That should be an easy one for you.</em></strong></p>
<p><strong><em>And what the Hell Lord....make it 31-30 for Georgia State over Alabama in overtime just for a hoot. (Yeah, I know...but you are God...it can't be any harder than the Red Sea thing)</em></strong></p>

<p>Neither Georiga nor Mississippi State can make the SEC Championship game.  The East champ will be the winner of next week's Florida-South Carolina game, and Auburn will win the West unless they lose to both Georgia and Alabama, <strong>and</strong> LSU beats both Ole Miss and Arkansas.  Although Miss St does have only two losses, those losses are to LSU and Auburn, and thus they can't win any tiebreakers against either team. </p>

<p>Gee Bob you take all the fun out of my scenarios....<img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//biggrin.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>OK. let's be real here.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am absolutely happy with any combo of Auburn, Oregon, TCU and Boise State in the BCS game EXCEPT TCU vs Boise State (which aint gonna happen anyway)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Interesting to think that if Stanford hadn't blown a 21 point lead against Oregon (which is pretty much like a 3 point lead against everyone else) they'd be #1</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have no desire to see LSU play in the BCS game, and I didn't want to see Alabama. Other than that...the best season ever continues unabated (as they say in the NFL)</p>

Sorry Duckman, I retract those 2 losses. I wanna see Oregon play because you get an extra game since they don't waste any time in putting the ball in play.</p>

<p>You know, maybe Alabama still has a shot at winning the SEC West.  I'm sure <strong>Tim</strong> can verify this...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If Auburn loses both of their remaining games, LSU loses excatly one of theirs, and Alabama wins both of theirs, then all three teams will finish 6-2 in conference and 1-1 against each other.  So I think the next tie-breaker in a three-way scenario is record in the division.  In this scenario, LSU would have two losses in the West, while Auburn and Alabama would have one loss in the West and one in the East.  So I think that eliminates LSU, and then the winner would be between Auburn and Alabama, which would have to be Alabama in order to make this scenario relevant. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So it's a long shot, but it looks like Alabama still does have a chance...</p>

<p>Regardless of what happens in the Alabama game, Georgia State will have a winning season in its first year.  The Panthers beat Lamar 23-17 at the Georgia Dome.</p>

<p>At this point, the matchup I'd want to see is Oregon v. Auburn (both of them undefeated, of course).  If one or the other loses once, I wouldn't see TCU against the remaining undefeated either.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Maybe Nevada can take Boise out of the equation with their tilt in Reno - frankly, I don't want to see a rematch between Boise & TCU again in the "Okay, let's let the undefeated non-AQ schools play each other Bowl 2"</p>

<p>'Sconnie is #6 in the AP poll? <snort></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>okay, if you say so <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/dontknow.gif" style="width:37px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>if we get past IU [in Camp Randall], AND if we get all three running backs [Clay, Ball, and White] healthy, then we can control the clock so that Michiganwon't put up 67 on us in the big house</p>
<p> </p>
<p>and hopefully beat a talented Northwestern for our final home game of the season</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>*gulp* Better save my pennies for a BCS bowl, eh?</p>

Funny thing is Michigan's point total wasn't even the highest this week in the FBS.  Navy(?!?!) put up 76 points against East Carolina...and they didn't even need any overtimes to do it either.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I thought it was a misprint too when I saw it flashed on the screen - sometimes the service academies (traditionally running-oriented teams) will threaten 50 against the lesser-schools, but definitely not 70+</p>
