Here’s a simple question for you to ponder this morning: Florida and Alabama are ranked 1-2 in the Associated Press media poll. Based on what you have seen thus far, if Florida and Alabama both run the table, will the SEC championship game ALSO be the national championship game as well?
We know that technically it won’t be because the SEC champ will have to play somebody in Pasadena in January to get the crystal football. But if Florida and Alabama are both 12-0 on Dec. 5, will that decide the national championship in your mind?
Here is the final question: Knowing the history of the SEC, it is crazy to even suggest that both of these teams can run the table between now and then? Here are the schedules. You decide:
Oct. 17– vs. Arkansas. Hogs have a great offense with Ryan Mallett.
Oct. 24—at Miss. State. Urban Meyer and Tebow vs. Dan Mullen, their old OC
Oct. 31—vs. Georgia in Jacksonville. Don’t see much of a threat from Dawgs.
Nov. 7—vs. Vanderbilt. Vandy is really struggling now
Nov. 14—at South Carolina. Gamecocks have a very good defense. They could make it interesting.
Nov. 21—FIU. Please.
Nov. 28—Florida State. This will be Tebow’s last home game. It could also be Bobby Bowden’s last game as the Florida State head coach.
Oct. 17—South Carolina. Bama defense should bottle up South Carolina offense.
Oct. 24—Tennessee. Vols aren’t as good as they looked against Georgia.
Nov. 7—LSU. Tigers have no offensive identity.
Nov. 14—at Miss. State. Undermanned in Dan Mullen’s first year.
Nov. 21—Chattanooga. Tuneup for Auburn.
Nov. 27 (Friday)—at Auburn. It’s at Jordan-Hare, so it could be interesting.
