That's where the outrage either way happens. If voters refuse to give Florida the nod over another 1 loss team, when UF's only loss will have been against a top 5 team while beating TexAM LSU SC and FSU, it would be complete b.s in my opinion. They'd likely resort to the "didn't win the conference title" garbage they did last season, but how does that really hold water when 2 of the current undefeateds won't even PLAY in a conference title game period?
Guys n Gals--all this conjecture is just hyperbole and fun. The bottom line, after 52 years of being a Bama fan, is we just need to focus on Bama finishing strong with discipline. If we win out, which is now all that matters, everything else will take care of itself. The doors will open somehow for Bama to have a shot at another NC--just listen to Cowherd's show today. But now let's just focus on totally dominating the barn and then on to UGA. If we do that, whatever happens next will be done with Bama pride and greatness as in the past.
I agree 100% and I was about to post something very similar to follow up my original post. Worry about BAMA and the rest will take care of itself. BAMA needs to get back to dominating the LOS, and we will do that by running the football, controlling the clock, and allowing our tired defense to rest.

This is what fans do. We don't have to worry about Bama because we're not playing in the games. Our players/coaches need to worry about all that and not worry about Oregon, KSU, ND...but we as fans can do it because what we do doesn't matter. We have one game that is loseable left on our schedule which is UGA. We don't play them for another 19 days. From now until then, I am going to keep a close eye on what the teams in front of us do...just as I did last year.
Believe me, I understand where you're coming from as I remind posters regularly that we don't play on the team and are allowed to look ahead. Looking at the other teams is fine, go right ahead, but if we don't get back to playing our brand of football then we will likely lose to UGA regardless. If we try to play finesse football against UGA we will lose. You beat UGA by socking them in the mouth, but lately it's been us getting hit. I have faith we will turn it around but it has to start with play calling.
Agreed. We have some serious issues that must be fixed before we play UGA. I'm confident our coaches and players will figure it out though. We just finished a tough stretch of games and now have a couple cupcakes to let us heal, rest, and work on some things. I think we'll do just that and beat UGA in the dome. We were 2 yards away from being 10-0 right now and still #1. We're not suddenly some also-ran. We're still one of the best teams in the country and I think with WCU and Auburn, two awful football teams, we'll be able to take a closer look at UGA from now until December 1st. We'll be ready.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
USC is the one that could upset the balance of the BCS. They have to beat UCLA first. But they should knock of Notre Dame and they are the one team that has a legit shot to beat Oregon. Stanford is a terrible match up for Oregon's speed. Stanford will get housed by Oregon. I don't think Baylor can beat K State, but Texas could. But we've all seen what happens when Texas plays any team with a pulse. Our best chance is USC taking out Notre Dame and Oregon.
Bottom Line is..............We should all feel better about the scenario this year than the odds of the way things had to fall last year. End of Story. So let's enjoy the home stretch.
