... If they had to pick a winner "right now", they would have to go with Alabama. What the heck does that even mean? What does right now have to do with anything? Besides the world ending tomorrow, what's going to change between now and January 7th? Other than feelings and desires, not much.

It means they dont want to pick Bama with their hearts but their heads tell them otherwise.

Injuries and suspensions. Saban to NFL. Lots can change
Bowl season sometimes offers suspensions(grades,agents,team rules). Perhaps they mean as it sits today, they'd pick Alabama...anything changes, check back with them?
Figure of speech. If you are going to make me pick right now, I'll say Alabama.
Yeah, this is what they mean.
There won't be much of an argument about this on January 9th, because the game is on Monday the 7th .
My thoughts as well.
Eat clean. Train Hard.
If AJ got hurt b/t now and the game...would that change your pick? Or Jesse Williams. We did lose a number of players this year to ACL's. We have also lost a number during the offseason the last few years as well.
The things we take umbrage to...
I wonder what kind of a move an AJ injury would have on the line? Jesse Williams would be a big loss but I wouldn't expect the line to move more than 2 1/2, 3 pts or so but an injury to AJ would be a enormous swing. I THINK in that scenario we would still be favored (which is ridiculous to even say) but it would be close.
If AJ gets hurt, turn your bets in quickly - that line will drop by 10-12 quickly
Hold up, is Saban even going to coach in the BCS game? I hope so.
He's been hurt, would it go in the other direction if he gets healthy?
It means they need ratings and they are going to wait until the final day to make their pick. They both have picked Bama consistently all year..I do not see them straying from the SEC now. I am sure their producers want them to hold that final pick until later.
