Is it time for a rare dirge at SEC headquarters?

Not quite.

Three non-SEC teams — Kansas State, Oregon, Notre Dame — top the BCS rankings. This is the equivalent of a Big Foot sighting – or maybe three of them. But there’s still a possibility that the winner of the SEC championship game in the Georgia Dome between Georgia and Alabama will wind up in the BCS championship game.

Will SEC get a team to the BCS title game?

Loading ... Loading ...

SEC schools have won six straight BCS titles. In short, two of the three undefeated teams ahead of Georgia and Alabama have to lose for a chance to make it seven. And that could happen.

Here’s how I see it breaking down:

No. 1 Kansas State (10-0).

Schedule: at Baylor (4-5), vs. BCS No. 15 Texas (8-2)

Recap: The Wildcats will beat Baylor. The Bears can score a ton of points but their defense can’t hold up against a Sun Belt team. Texas has lost to its two strongest opponents this season, West Virginia (48-45) and Oklahoma (63-21), and both were home games. But the Longhorns are 4-0 on the road this season and they won at Texas Tech 31-22 a week ago. The biggest obstacle to a Texas upset: Its defense hasn’t been able to stop the run all season, allowing 200 yards per game. Rushing is the strength of the Kansas State offense (213.6). Kansas State also is helped by the fact that there is no Big 12 championship game this season because the defections of Nebraska and Colorado dropped the conference under the mandated minimum of 12 teams for a conference title game.

Bottom line: Barring an unexpected meltdown, Kansas State will be in the BCS title game.

No. 2 Oregon (10-0).

Schedule: vs. BCS No. 13 Stanford, at BCS No. 16 Oregon State, Pacific 12 Conference title (if necessary).

Recap: The Ducks are averaging nearly 55 points a game. That can cover up a lot of deficiencies. But USC is the highest ranked team Oregon has played this season, and the Ducks barely escaped 62-51. Stanford took Notre Dame to overtime earlier this season in South Bend before losing. Last week the Cardinal upset Oregon State. Stanford can run the ball and, therefore, control the clock and keep Oregon’s offense off the field. So this game has upset potential. Similarly, the Ducks’ game against rival Oregon State in Corvallis won’t be easy. The Beavers have the second-lowest scoring defense in the conference (19.1) and are accustomed to seeing Oregon’s offense. The Ducks have won the last two meetings in Corvallis but prior to that Oregon State had won five straight. Even if Oregon gets through both of those games, the team still has to win the conference championship game (against USC or UCLA).

Bottom line: With potentially three difficult games, it says here Oregon will lose one of them.

Brian Kelly's team still must win at USC.

No. 3 Notre Dame (10-0)

Schedule: vs. Wake Forest, at BCS No. 18 USC.

Recap: This is the wild card. The Irish will walk all over Wake Forest, which has lost five of its last eight and just got drilled by North Carolina State 37-6. The question is what happens in the USC game in two weeks, and Georgia or Alabama fans could be in the uncomfortable position of rooting for Lane Kiffin in that game. The Trojans’ defense has slipped significantly but Notre Dame is not an overpowering offensive team. Also, while the Irish won in Los Angeles two years ago, this series has been dominated by the Trojans since 2002, with nine wins in the last 10 meetings. Expect this game to tip on a turnover.

Bottom line: Maybe this is just the part of me that has a difficult time visualizing no SEC team in the BCS title game. But USC will upset Notre Dame.

Agree or disagree? The digital venting lines are open and we’ve put up a poll.

Hey, moving pictures! (And why Georgia can beat Alabama)

No, if there are two undefeated teams, then that is it for the SEC. Especially if Georgia somehow beats Alabama. How does Georgia argue having a better schedule than an Oregon or KSU? They didn’t play LSU or Alabama in regular season and got to play Florida on a neutral field. Their toughest game of the year wasn’t even close, a complete dismantling by Carolina.

Two of the three undefeated teams do not play a conference championship game. That won’t hurt ND because they are ND, but if Alabama wins out and looks good doing it, they could pass Kansas State. The same is not true for UGA, because they have played a weak schedule, were embarassed by USC, and didn’t look good in beating UF.

Otherwise, 2 of the 3 must lose.

I don’t see it happening. The whole country, outside our part of the world, has “SEC fatigue.” I also think Notre Dame might lose to USC but that won’t be enough. Once the four team playoff comes, at least some of this nonsense will be over. I can’t imagine that many years the SEC Champion won’t be in the playoff.

Ok Happy Warrior, yes a loss is a loss but when it comes down to the eye test which all the pundits predict, BAMA’s loss coming back from 20 down in the first quarter to almost win it compared to GA’s shellacking by SC does make a difference. To GA’s credit, they seem to be playing their best at the right time although Auburn certainly isn’t a litmus test. Unless two of the three unbeaten teams go down and GA wins convincingly in the SEC Championship I don’t think they can get there.

Notre Dame will lose to S.C. and Stanford got screwed when the ref made a “home” call to give the win to N.D. and they barely got by lowly Pitt. Not sure if it will be Oregon or K-State that loses a game but Oregon does have a more difficult schedule ahead. I hope K-State wins and Oregon loses. That would be a better match up for the SEC champ and I really respect K-States coach for coming out of retirement to rebuild their program.

I’m with you Jeff…UGA has to win out. ND and Oregon have to lose…or Bama has to win out, and ND and Oregon has to lose. Bottom line is this: UGA shouldn’t have lost to SC, and Bama shouldn’t have lost to T A&M. UGA doesn’t lose to SC and they are 1 or two. Bama doesn’t lose to T A&M, and they remain # 1. Thinking we win out and go to Sugar Bowl vs. ND, or lose a tight one to Bama in SECCG and end up in the Orange Bowl against FSU. Either is fine with me, barring a miracle and ending up in the NCG. I do not see FLA beating FSU, nor do I see anyone else in SEC leap frogging us out of a BCS game unless blown out by Bama in SECCG. Believe we are in New Orleans or Miami…regardless.

YES UGA will beat Bummer by 7 to 10 points in the Dome. Stop Tide’s run game and pressure the QB just like A&M did and UGA does have a better defense than A&M. Georgia’s OL should be healed up and ready by then. Bama doesn’t have the DE’s that the GameClucks have and Richt is 3 – 3 with Saban. Against a good “D” Bama looks average on offense. They beat LSU because Miles got stupid and went to a prevent defense in the last six minutes of the game.

Florida was lucky to win their last two games. Offense is pitiful. FSU might beat them for that reason alone. Should be a low scoring game.

If this is an example of the type of education you get at Virginia Tech, that to a whole people in what you call The Deep South, and which we refer to as The South, you can bet that my expectations of people from Virginia Tech is being down-graded by you as an example.

This UGA fan wishes that Dawg fans would just hush up about the BCSCG stuff. We shot our wad in Columbia, SC. As always, we lost a game we should have been at least competitive in. Again.

We still have a chance at a great year if we take care of business in Athens the next 2 Saturdays, and then play our best game of the year in the Dome. We would then likely have Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl, and a chance at a 13-win season.

But, enough with the putting other teams’ schedules down – hey, take a look at ours.

Bama will only be our 3rd ranked team of the whole season . . .

I agree that it will take two of the three undefeated teams to lose for the winner of the SEC Championship game to make the BCS Championship game this year, whether that is Alabama or Georgia. Of the three, Kansaas State probably has the easiest schedule for the rest of the season, so it will come down to can Oregon and ND both win out? Strenght of schedule does matter, and the three undefeated teams have all faced a stronger schedule than UGA has, for sure.

I will NOT root for Southern California against Notre Dame. Any team whose claim to fame is beating then 5-Loss Southern California who will NOT be ranked in the final BCS Rankings will get JUMPED by # 4 and # 5 playing each other, especially since I see Kansas State losing anyway – so we will be # 3 and # 4 playing each other while UNRANKED Southern California a 5-LOSS team is the claim to fame by BOTH Notre Dame and by Oregon.

Who in the BLAZES did Oregon beat ?

Who in the BLAZES did Notre Dame beat ?

Who in the BLAZES did Kansas State beat ?

Alabama has already beat # 7 BCS Ranked LSU.

Georgia has already beat # 6 BCS Ranked Florida.

Alabama or Georgia, will add that they ALSO beat # 3 or # 4.

Yes, but that doesn’t mean that if Oregon, Kansas State or Notre Dame were in The SEC, that THEY would be undefeated either.

First of all, NO WAY on God’s green earth is UGA the 5th-best team in the country. The truth hurts UGA, so don’t kill the messenger.

The SEC-bias has gotta come to an end! A prevoius poster said UGA’s SOS was 13th….IN THE SEC! UGA has gotten “Jet-Puffed” the past 2 seasons by playing one the weakest schedules in D-1. So far in 2012 they have played only 2 teams worth a darn, and they’re 1-1. And, after this past Saturday, one those teams showed they might not be as good as perceived. UF’s an SEC power? No SEC power has to get a BLOCKED PUNT TD to win vs. a team like UL Monroe.

UF had SIX (6) TOs vs UGA and only lost by 8 pts. UGA got SIX (6) TOs in a single game, yet only managed 17 pts? Nuff said.

Reality doesn’t matter. ESPN/BCS dictate NCAA football. They’ve got their financial wagons tied to the SEC. If you’re incapable of comprehending this just look at the latest BCS rankings. 1, 2 & 3 are undefeated. They are followed by SIX SEC teams, 3 of which have 2 losses!

I doubt all 3 will, but even if Oregon, K-St & ND go undefeated, am I going to be surprised when the powers that be tell me how an SEC team is more deserving of a title shot than 2 zero-loss teams? Nope!

If UGA pulls

“The Chip Kelly plan”

you know, run up the score against terrible teams to skew average margin of vicxtory to try and lead the nation in offensive scoring

Let’s say UGA unloads on G South for 100 points, and lays another 80 points on GT, not hard to imagine.

then UGA finishes the season, #1 in average margin of victory, #1 in scoring offense

the bcs computers will love UGA

The Aaron Murray pic above says “Reasons Behind Bulldogs SEC Success”

Is this a rhetorical comment?

The only good SEC teams UGA played in 2011 (SC & LSU) wupped UGA. The only good SEC teams UGA has played thus far in 2012 (SC & UF) are 1-1 vs the Dawgs, the L was another wuppin, and the W was aided by SIX TOs!

Three of UGA’s 2012 SEC opps are 7-23, 0-20 in the SEC AU, UT, UK
Those three teams in 2011 were 18-19 overall, and 7-17 in the SEC. UGA beat ZERO SEC teams with winning Conf records; AU went 4-4, followed by 3-5 UF, then three 2-6 teams (Vandy, UK, Miss St), a 1-7 UT and an 0-8 Ole Miss.

Thus far in 2012, three of UGA’s SEC opps have 0 conf wins. And if Vandy beats UT this week, 0-7 UT & 0-7 UK will face off on 11/24 to see who goes winless in the conf along with AU (Tigers ain’t beating Bama).
WOW! What are those reasons behind UGA’s SEC success?

In 2007 West Virginia was #2 in the BCS standings with an 11-1 record and featured the outstanding duel threat of Steve Slaton and Pat White. All the Mountaineers had to do was beat a 4-7 Pittsburgh team over whom they were heavily favored in the “Backyard Brawl” and they would be in the BCS Championship game…Pittsburgh won and Florida slipped in to play Ohio State in a game MANY thought should have been a Michigan\Ohio State rematch because Florida wasn’t particularly flashy! (Can you say Alabama\LSU in 2011?) Then Florida whipped up on OSU. As they saying goes, that’s why they play the games.

I think the best team should be in the championship game, which doesn’t always equate to the undefeated team, especially in the SEC. I think the winner of the SEC championship should probably be in the BCS championship game based simply on strength of schedule. It’s hard to get through a season in the SEC undefeated when you’re playing that caliber of team week in and week out. I just don’t think Oregon, K State, or Notre Dame could play in the SEC and be undefeated. They’d all be 1 loss, possibly 2 loss teams at a minimum.

All that being said, right now, I’m not sure there’s a team that could beat Texas A&M. They’d be in the thick of it if it weren’t for the 8 points TOTAL that seperated them from winning against Florida/LSU.

Oregon controls its own destiny. If they win out they will definitely be in the NC game.
You’re right about K-State and Texas. Texas is not what they have been, but they’re still a strong team.
Notre Dame’s only strong opponent is USC, and they’re not what they have been. Still, it’s a rivalry game, and you never know.
I suspect that most of the people in the network (and maybe even in the NCAA itself) would prefer to see Notre Dame in the national championship game because of it’s nationwide fanbase. If ND plays for a national title, the game will attract a lot more fans in the northeast (which is the largest media market) than a game between a team from the midwest and a team from the Pacific northwest.
But the K-State v. Texas game is a week AFTER the ND-USC game…so if both teams win out, K-State will get a boost by having their last remaining big game a week later.
I really believe that…if all three currently undefeated teams win out…the NC game will be Oregon vs. K-State.
For an SEC team to get in, two of the remaining three undefeateds have to lose. It’s the only way.

That’s a plausible scenario, but Georgia has to win out the regular season and beat Alabama for the SEC championship for this to even be an issue. Win the SEC and take a 12-1 record into the bowl season and I won’t worry too much about what the 3 undefeated teams do. Anything beyond an SEC title is just gravy.

If Kansas State and Oregon get into the Championship game I can live with that because both are very good teams . I think both would give Alabama all they could handle because most teams in the SEC are all about strength and speed . Georgia , Alabama , South Carolina and Florida would all have a problem with a spread type option offense like Oregon or Kansas State or even Texas A&M has. Notre Dame would get killed by L.S.U. or Alabama and Georgia or South Carolina would win by only 10 because Notre Dame would line up and play smash mouth football and that is the SEC specialty. L.S.U. actually has the best match up against Kansas State or Oregon .
As great as Alabama was last year Oklahoma State would have had the best chance at beating them because Oklahoma State had a good enough Defense but that spread , option, Quarterback would have given Alabama fits just like Texas A&M did this past weekend.

I agree that Kansas St will probably go undefeated and that Notre Dame has a decent chance of losing. Oregon is not losing to Stanford or Oregon St though. That is wishful thinking. Even last year with a much better team Stanford couldn’t come close to stopping Oregon. It is probably going to be a Kansas St/Oregon National Championship.

JoeFan

Only way for the SEC to get a team in the title game is for two of the three undefeated team to loose. Just that simple. After last year’s title game snoozer between AL and LSU a game between two wide open offenses certainly would be more enteratining to view.

Ed

Here’s another intriguing scenario: Oregon, K State, and ND all finish with perfect records. My money says that there’s no way ND gets left out of a national title game in favor of two schools with comparitively little football tradition. If they do, the eastern media establishment will gripe for the next 12 months about the injustice of it all. I bet ND finds a way to get bumped up to #2 in the BCS if it wins out.

The SEC will get screwed again because if you have 6 of the top 10 teams in the BCS you would think the SEC would dominate the BCS Bowl selections but if I understand the rule correctly not counting the BCS Championship game I think only two SEC teams can go to the BCS . No more than two teams per Conference. That means the SEC Champion will go to the Sugar and probably Texas A&M will end up in the Fiesta because of their proximity to Arizona. That leaves a lot of great SEC teams playing in the Capital One and Outback and other minor bowls against teams that may not even make it in the top 20 like Michigan and Michigan State. Really stinks but we can always beat them by 5 touchdowns to prove a point .
Can’t wait until the BCS does the right thing and go’s to an 8 team playoff but only if the top 8 teams go’s every year with no restrictions as to how many teams can go from any one Conference.

After further review

Thomas:

1) Just because you beat Florida (courtesy of six turnovers on their part) does not mean you get to take credit for beating everyone else on Florda’s schedule. Please stop doing so.

2) You have played, to date, two ranked teams and beaten one of them, The other one thrashed you pretty solidly.

3) Number 5 beats number 4 is not a formula for jumping over any unbeatens ahead of you. This is certainly true when most of yor schedule currently has a losing record.

4) Kansas State beat Oklahoma, giving them as many wins agains ranked teams as UGA currently has, They still have at least one ranked team, Texas, to play. If they beat them, they will have beaten as many To 25 teams as you have, assuming you beat Alabama.

5) Oregon has beaten Southern California, giving them as many wins against ranked teams as you have, and still has Stanford and Oregon State to play in the regular season (both currently ranked in the top 25, as well), then a Pac-12 Championship game against, probably, USC or UCLA, which would give them four ranked opponents beaten, assuming they win out. Since USC and UCLA are both currently ranked, one has to assume that whichever of those two teams gets to the Pac-12 championship game wil be ranked when they get there.

6) Notre Dame has beaten Stanford, Oklahoma, and Michigan, all of whom are currently in the top 25, and still has Southern California, also in the Top 25 currently, left to play. Granted, there is the possibilty that one or more of those teams will ultimately fall out of the rankings. But, they aren’t all going to fall out of the rankings. Michigan will likely be either 8-4 or 9-3, depending on how the do against unbeaten (but not eligible for the BCS rankings) Ohio State.

Sorry, but UGA’s strength of schedule doesn’t compare as favorably as you seem to be lieve with any of those teams currently ahead of you, and there’s still the matter of getting past Alabama in the SEC Championship game. Keep in mind that only two teams max from each conference can get a BCS Bowl bid. The conference champion will likely go to the Sugar, which leaves only one other slot for the other SEC teams in the top 10.

UGA needs to learn how to beat ranked teams, before talking about National Champ games. GA beat 1 this year. Got clobbered by the other one. If my math is correct, UGA has 8 wins total over ranked teams since 2008. Gene Chizik has more wins against ranked teams his 1st 4 years (actually 3, I doubt he will get one this year) than CMR has in the last 10 years. GC is getting canned, CMR gets and extension.

If the season ended today with the top 8 per the current BCS, there would be 5 SEC teams in the top 8 and therefore in the playoff. Id like to see it that way but it ain happening….

Best we could hope for if this season with an 8 team playoff would be 5 confrence winners, ND, and 2 at large invites….. Probably no more than 2 teams from the same confrence, so the SEC would get 2…….

#1-5 would be in including O, K, and ND….. then two SEC teams from those ranked 4-9, and then we would dip down into the teens to pick up 3 more confrence champs….

Now the most likely scenario is that the BCS title will be played by K State and ND (who are MAYBE the 3rd and 9th best teams in the league) while the conference that has won the last 6 — convincingly — is shut out completely despite having a 1-loss champion (assuming neither Bama or UGA loses a game before the SECCG)?

Second one, bout as dubious as UF’s ‘97 title – what with a “rematch” vs a unbeaten team who beat you a few weeks before.

It’s possible for Alabama to jump undefeated teams – see USC in 2003? ranked #1 in both polls and got out politicked in last poll despite winning. If Oregon loses to any of these ranked teams they drop to 8-9, if ND loses to #18 USC, they drop to 9-10, if KSU loses to Texas, they drop to 9-10. Alabama loses to a # 18 A&M and they only drop to 4. There is a reason they only went to 4 which is to allow them to jump back in on a “weak” performance by a non SEC team. The top 3 have to blow everyone away or Ala will be in the game (and I’m not a Tide fan).

And looking ahead if they win the SEC they will have beaten the #4 team in the country. So….who else would have beatn the #2,6 and 5 teams in the country???????

Thomas, if you sincerely belive that the SEC champion plays in the nationla title game no matter what you are seriously mistaken. There are three unbeaten teams ahead the SEC chamionship winner, who will have at least one loss. Since none of those teams is from a non-qualifying converence, the SEC champion will not jump past them, period. As things now stand the SEC Championship matchup is 4 vs. 5. How do you imagine that gets a bump past 1, 2, or 3, all of whom are unbeaten at this point?

By the way, your comments to Nikki show a complete lack of class on our part, not to mention the ignorance of your statement that Virginia is in the North. Virginia fought on the side of the Confederacy, you can look it up.

I was very good in history and history tells us Richt and Bobo must have a 2 or more loss season

With Bama and probably a decent bowl team to go up against I still see it happening

Bama is much more beatable if 2 of the 3 unbeatens remain unbeaten

all due to AL realizing their National Championship hopes being shattered and them being undermotivated

I will take it just to win another SEC championship

that leaves the bowl game against another decent team

I just dont see us winning out especially if we play a tough bowl opponent but if its a Louisville etc then Richt wins out, with him really only beating 2 good teams all year

Nobody will be Oregon and KSU will kill Texas. I think UGA has a real shot to beat Alabama depending on how Bama handles the loss. It’s very possible Bama could go South since they will have missed on their main goal of a repeat and there has been a huge effort placed on just that by the team. Lots of work done by this team to reach that goal. This could be a problem. I am glad we’re playing the little sisters of the poor this week and I hope Mal can do something about getting A&M moved away from the game after LSU. Bama played Mizzou,UT,Miss State,LSU, and A&M in a row and that is a tuff row but the game following LSU for Bama needs to be a little girls team or maybe a little better but not a good football team. You people that want 9 conference games are just crazy! We will kill any chances of gettting teams into the 4 deal. The northern bias is about to get started with Notre Dame and Urban cranking up OSU every year so that takes two spots and we’re back to the rest of us fighting for the other 2. The best thing for the SEC is to go to 8. UGA is in a good spot for a big year both on the field and recruiting if things fall their way. Just saying. The process will continue at Bama regardless……but the only folks going Nick’s way are those kids that are dead serious about football and not so much into the fun and rah rah stuff. Just like this country Nick’s selection pool will get less and less each year if you get my drift.

Since some folks are trying to figure out strength of schedule, which always is tricky, figured I would post the top 10 teams according to the average of the 6 computer rankings used by BCS.
1. Notre Dame
2. Kansas State
3. Florida
4. Oregon
5. Alabama
6. Georgia
7. LSU
8t. Texas A&M
8t. South Carolina
10. Oklahoma

I’d think Oregon would shoot up if it wins its next two (vs. ranked teams)

Same crap that happened in 2004 may end up happening this year. Oklahama get blown out in the Championship game and the media( ESPN ) wanted the number 1 and number 2 rated Quarterbacks to plan in the Championship game so an undefeated Auburn team was skipped and Southern Cal beat the Hell out of Oklahoma, just like everyone thought would happen. I still think Auburn would have beaten Southern Cal .
Same crap this year with Notre Dame. If they go undefeated and either Oregon or Kansas State loses I think the delusional media ( ESPN ) will again make sure that Notre Dame gets into the Championship game only because they are undefeated even though they didn’t really play anybody that finished in the top 10 and if that happen Oregon will beat them by 4 touchdowns and Kansas State will win by at least 2 touchdown but the beat team in the nation wouldn’t have even played.
Can’t wait for the playoff, it will be very hard for at least one SEC not to be given the opportunity which is all I ask. Then the media can go to, HELLO, because they can’t control things any longer, it will be settled on the field where everyone should want to see it settled.

that 2 of the 3 lose. Oregon has no “D” and 3 tough opponents. Kansas St has an improving Texas team to deal with. And ND will get phantom interference calls after they failed on 4th down again.

Everyone complains about the UGA schedule, but no one mentions that Bama did not have to play the East’s best. No UGA, Florida or SC on their slate. Ironically these two teams made it through the SEC.

7576 – I am looking forward to the playoff as well but it is going to come with its controversy as well….

The idea of a playoff sounds great given where we have been over the past BCS era… there is always question among the top 4-6 teams and who really are the top 2 that deserve to play in the championship game?

Well I am for the playoff, if you are making an effort to get the top 4 teams (preferably 8) in that playoff field. Well this evolving committee, i asssure you is not going to get the top 4 in the field. It might get the top 1… and give them three other teams to play it out against…. BUT ….. the stipulations/guidlines that aare TBD, I assure you are going to limit the ability to put the best four teams in the playoff; rather they will be designed to be FAIR and give all confrence winners a chance, regardless of whether the best 4 teams are in or not.

NOW… I agree that a 32 or 64 or 16 team playoff is too much… The more teams you put in the playoff the better the chance of getting it right and having the best teams in the field.

But be it 4 teams or 8 teams, you want them to be the best 4-8 teams in the nation competing, regardless of confrence. I really think the BCS system does a good job of ranking them. Look at past years bowl games as an indicator.. 78% of the time the highest ranked BCS team wins the bowl.

Leave the ranking system as is and put the top 4 or 8 in the playoff

If any of these top 4 has a loss, you have G,F, LSU, A&M, SC waiting on the outside at 5 thru 9…

Bama and UGA at 4/5 would be in a play in game in Atlanta for that 4th spot….

If O,K, ND had a loss the next highest ranked team get in the playoff???? AS another SEC team who didnt win their confrence or maybe division?

Or would you skip down to a 10 or 11th ranked ACC champ?

What I found interesting was that on the list of replacements in the poll, Jon Gruden got the most votes. WHAT? NO Chizik or Petrino even listed in that poll? Either one would be perfect at TN! After all, they had Lane Kiffin for awhile didn’t they? BTW, don’t be surprised if GSU(the REAL GSU) upsets the DAWGS. Wonder how the AJC will handle that one. They only know one GSU.

A fumble in the red zone, and 2 picks by McCarron, caused the lost, not Mousy football. People simply hate BAMA, so did I before my son some how decided to attend school there. I hated them simply because it’s instinctive to hate a winner, a dynasty, and seeing the same old team over and over (just admit it, I had to). America celebrated because BAMA lost. Why because of haterade. People are simply over the SEC GIANTS, and BAMA being a household name. PROOF – Who celebrated the 2 losses that Texas A&M got??? Nobody, wasn’t out of the ordinary right?

Texas craps the bed in big games, K State will be one of the two teams in the title game. And Notre Dame? They have a nasty habit of rising to the occasion in big games and shutting down vaunted offensive weapons. (see: Oklahoma)

As a Dawg fan, I just want to beat Southern and Tech and go to the SEC game as healthy as we can be. If we fire on all eight cylinders we can beat Bama. BIG if I know but Bama, you boys have been exposed in the last two weeks.

Both Alabama and Georgia are on the same side of the coin– pulling for two losses from the top three teams. It would be big if the Bama-UGA winner goes to the title tilt. As for Notre Dame, they have been lucky against mediocre teams. The missed penalty (two #2′as on the field on the FG try) Pitt in OT. The Stanford “no touchdown.” So overrated!

Hey unbiased. AL had a “weak” schedule as well. They didn’t play UGA, USC or FL. They could have played FL, but b/c they didn’t want to lose both Auburn AND Tennesee as “rivals” on their schedule, they pitched a hissy fit and blocked Auburn moving to the SEC East. Keeping Auburn in the West meant they didn’t have to choose between UT and Auburn as their “permanent” rival. And people forget that for awhile there, AL and Auburn did NOT play every year. As for someone crying about UF being a “neutral” site game with UGA, does that matter now that UGA has won 2 straight?
And guess what? looks like UGA does get to play AL, or LSU or A&M. . . .. in the championship game, where it really matters.

I agree that Kansas St will probably go undefeated and that Notre Dame has a decent chance of losing. Oregon is not losing to Stanford or Oregon St though. That is wishful thinking. Even last year with a much better team Stanford couldn’t come close to stopping Oregon. It is probably going to be a Kansas St/Oregon National Championship.

We still have a chance at a great year if we take care of business in Athens the next 2 Saturdays, and then play our best game of the year in the Dome. We would then likely have Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl, and a chance at a 13-win season.
But, enough with the putting other teams’ schedules down – hey, take a look at ours.
Bama will only be our 3rd ranked team of the whole season . . .

Thomas, if you sincerely belive that the SEC champion plays in the nationla title game no matter what you are seriously mistaken. There are three unbeaten teams ahead the SEC chamionship winner, who will have at least one loss. Since none of those teams is from a non-qualifying converence, the SEC champion will not jump past them, period. As things now stand the SEC Championship matchup is 4 vs. 5. How do you imagine that gets a bump past 1, 2, or 3, all of whom are unbeaten at this point?
By the way, your comments to Nikki show a complete lack of class on our part, not to mention the ignorance of your statement that Virginia is in the North. Virginia fought on the side of the Confederacy, you can look it up.

The truth is that Bama, who has all of the sudden become “human” the last couple of weeks, didn’t play one of the top three teams in the East this year, barely made it past LSU, who at times hasn’t looked all that great this year (beating Auburn 12-10), and then lost to the 16th ranked team in the country at home. I’m sorry, I just don’t see all this “UGA has a snowball’s chance in hell” as being very realistic. I expect a very good game. Seriously, go look at Alabama’s schedule this year. Michigan was supposed to be a big game — they suck. Arkansas sucks. Auburn sucks. Tennessee sucks. LSU, who got slaughtered by a very weak Florida team (Louisiana-Lafayette?), is the only team worth a damn that Bama has beaten. At the very least they’ll be getting a Georgia team that’s finally clicking on all cylinders. I’m just glad to repeat as East champs and that we (true UGA fans) get to watch an extra game again this year. Whatever happens in the SECCG, we need to finish with a bowl WIN this year :-) And, we’re gonna have another fantastic recruiting class going into next season. It’s great to be a Georgia Bulldog!!

I’ll tell ya the one that scares me (as it should the rest of Dawgnation) is the Tech game. Southern might pull that score on their first drive crap to piss us off a little bit but we’ll handle them. I can completely see Tech coming into Athens with nothing to lose and playing like maniacs and us caught looking ahead to the SEC title with Bama. It is the perfect Richt can’t get ‘em focused game that will give us three heart attacks before it’s over. You know what I’m talking about dawg fans.

I can’t see a one loss SEC team getting in over an unbeaten. If so then I could possibly see Bama slipping in over ND but not Georgia. Bama had a very close loss against an A&M that is on a roll. They could just as easily have won that game.

But if Georgia beats Bama I can’t see them slipping past one unbeaten like ND. Reason being their one loss was a horrendous loss and their schedule was one of the weakest in the nation. That is what hurts Georgia.

Now if they were to beat the hell out of Alabama then they could skip an unbeaten ND. But that aint gonna happen. Only way Georgia can win that game is if they have the same formula LSU and A&M had. They would need to play turnover free and penalty free football in order to win and hope Bama has several turnovers. That’s the only way they could beat Bama. Hell that’s the only way LSU played em close and the only way TAM could win. Play perfect and hope the other team turns the ball over several times.

“I KNOW THESE 4 THINGS FOR SURE…(don’t ask me how, I just do…)

#3. Once again, we will not be prepared for a “big-game” and find ways to lose to a Bama team that could be beaten if we played 60 minutes football. We will give them at least 15-30 minutes head start…(I know this because I hate history and it has a tendency to repeat itself. It’s not that we can’t win, its that we will be tight and seemingly unprepared…)
#4. After #3,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,#4 just won’t matter…”
_______________________________________
I wish you were wrong about # 3 too kingdaddy. I don’t expect us to win every big game, and while no one considered Florida a great or even good team 2012, they have gone out and beat # 7 LSU, # 8 Texas A & M and # 9 South Carolina; winning that game therefore was very important. It does not mean that we did beat # 7 # 8 and # 9 ourselves; but, it does mean that we beat the team who did. # 2 at game time # 6 now in the BCS, and has a shot at ending up in the only published polls for 2012 ahead of us, although we stretched out our lead over Florida with our 38 to nothing thrashing Saturday. 38-10 over Ole Miss was another example that we might not lose to Bama. 50-9 over Georgie tek and 32-17 or something like that over Georgia Southern University would be further proof; but until we get in the game with Alabama, stand up on snap # 1 and move the football, there is no proof to-date other than Florida, really, that we can complete with teams who are great. There is no doubt that Florida 2012 has had a great season. Florida has shown they, too, have issues all season long. But, they beat # 7 # 8 and # 9. You have to give them credit for that. Our game with them was close, to say the least. We ruined their season, and our throttling of The SEC teams the last 2 weeks after beating Florida, gives some hope.

There are a good dozen or so Bulldogs’ fans on this blog who say about the same as you here, and hold-out some hope. I-95 even says he feels our PLAYERS could beat Alabama.

SEC Championship Game is AFTER all the other games.
Results of Notre Dame Southern California will be known before our kick-off
Results of Oregon Southern California # 2 will be known before our kick-off
Results of Oregon Stanford will be known before our kick-off
Results of Oregon Oregon State will be known before our kick-off
Results of PAC-12 CHUMPionship game are Friday 8pm E & Saturday SEC
Results of Texas Kansas State will be known

OBVIOUSLY, THERE COULD BE A LOT RIDING ON SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME COMING A DAY AFTER PAC-12 CHUMPionship Game.

Either, way, the team who wins The SEC Championship Game plays in the BCS Title Game.

(1) Bama would have beat # 5 UGA # 7 LSU
(2) UGA would have beat # 6 FL and # 4 AL

Anyone who thinks there is no BUMP-UP for that, also has not studied history because “ranked teams” is all Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame can discuss and yes those ranked teams are most likely going to end up in that fatal final BCS Poll at # 21, # 23 and # 24 by direct comparison.

________________________________________________________
OREGON KANSAS STATE NOTRE DAME NO WINS VS BC TOP 10
________________________________________________________

In this Final BCS Poll, it is where the other teams are ranked in The Top 10 in that poll which will matter the most. Not just for computer polls, but for the beauty pageant which is the BCS 2-team play-off for the Title.

There is NO DOUBT we are in the DISCUSSION and there is no doubt that it will continue to get more and more DISCUSSION between now and Saturday December 1, not Friday night for the PAC-12 CHUMPionship Game.

The entire focus of the college football world will be on Alabama vs UGA and we’ve done better against Alabama than any other team in history, although way too many of the games have been in Tuscaloosa.

Since this is the hand which is dealt to us, I will take our chances. This is all I ever asked for. Not to beat all the top teams; no one can do that. Just not to lose all them; which everyone can do. We beat Florida.

The SEC has NOT slipped 2012. This is our finest hour, ever. Never in our STORIED HISTORY, has The SEC EVER had 6 of the top 9 in any poll, let alone the BCS Poll.

63 games to-date Georgia vs Alabama, and Alabama has won only 36. Of those 63 games, 38 have been home games for Alabama. Of the 25 home games for us, Alabama has won only 14. I say only because this is the best record of any team in the nation ever in the history of college football against Alabama. Of all teams to play with all Alabama’s freshmen playing key starting positions, Alabama wants to play Georgia the least. Our entire roster will end up in the NFL. We are not a young team compared to them. We lose 15 senior starters and the Juniors could follow suit after 2012 as well, with us facing LSU next season. A lot depends on our 2013 recruiting class picking up some top recruits on both lines and secondary and linebackers and a quarterback and a running back and a fullback and some wide receivers.

There is MUCH AT STAKE.

I would not exactly say that Alabama was prepared for Johnny Football running through them and throwing over them; and, make no mistake about it, the hurry-up and Johnny Football beat Alabama.

Notre Dame certainly has no Aaron Murray. Oregon Notre Dame and Kansas State stand to lose between now and kick-off against Alabama. In 1980, there was much consternation about who we would play. When it settled in on over-rated Notre Dame, all of us knew; but, even then what would that do in the Final Polls, was the question since it was obvious Notre Dame would drop nearly out of the top 10 maybe.

This game with Alabama is different.

Alabama plays in these games ALL THE TIME. We do NOT. This 2012 is our BEST CHANCE. A 1-year window.

For lots of reasons, we REALLY need this.

Just like we did against Florida.

The college football world for the 1st time in the Mark Richt era, will have ALL EYES UPON US AT THE END OF THE SEASON us against Alabama.

We beat Alabama BETTER THAN ANYONE. Honestly, Aaron Murray is a better quarterback than AJ McCarron now, after leading us to the TD to begin the Florida game, and just putting this team on his back and WILLING US to the end zone to put Florida away. Honestly, GurShall is better than Alabama’s running game. Honestly, Alabama has NO Jarvis Jones, if we can get him healthy in the next 18 days before kick-off. Honestly, I am not sure Alabama even has an Alec Oglletree, who I have always felt was our best pass defender, and would have been Erk Russell’s Rover from day 1. Honestly, and truthfully, we can be mean.

Can we beat Alabama ? Better than any other team in the history of college football, and this year as good a chance as any.

Can we make the BCS Championship Game, or Alabama, whichever team wins ? Guarantee like I did that Johnny Football would beat Alabama.

I am not saying I am happy either way. I am saying that

____________________________________________________________
WE’RE IN THE DISCUSSION ON NATIONAL STAGE END OF THE YEAR
____________________________________________________________

And, we have a

___________________________________________________________
BETTER WIN THAN ANY OF THE OTHER TEAMS IN THE DISCUSSION
___________________________________________________________

This is EXACTLY WHY I harped on us winning The Big Game. Who would’ve thunk it coming into this season that it would be the Florida game that makes this Alabama game have all this riding on it ? The SEC is enjoying our BEST SEASON EVER and we will have 1 of our teams in the title game. I don’t have to bet anyone.

All the anti-SEC football world can say all they want about only undefeated teams from “BCS Conferences” play in the nc title game, but the facts of the matter ARE The SEC is not only BETTER 2012 than EVER, but we ALL HAVE FAR BETTER WINS – ALREADY – than anything Notre Dame, Oregon and Kansas State can muster by the Final BCS Rankings after The SEC Championship Game 4 pm Georgia Dome.

The Game will provide a BUMP-UP because the winner will have either :

beat # 4 and # 6 in the BCS Rankings that fatal final BCS Poll, or
beat # 5 and # 7 in the BCS Rankings that fatal final BCS Poll.

While the best Oregon, Notre Dame, Kansas State CAN muster will be they beat # 21 or # 23 or # 24.

THAT doesn’t get you in the nc title game. You’re dreaming if you think the best 2 football teams 2012 beat as their best wins the # 21 or # 23 or # 24 in that fatal final BCS Poll.

_____________________________________________________
THERE WILL BE NO END TO IT IF IT DOES AND YOU KNOW IT

It will be a SPLIT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP and The SEC # 1 AP Poll if it is.

You have no credibility if you cannot address the fact that the best win Oregon Kansas State and Notre Dame can possibly offer up in that fatal final BCS Rankings is that they beat # 21 or # 23 or # 24 as their best win, and you think that makes you national champions.

BULL HOCKEY like I told nikki today.

BULL HOCKEY the nc beat as their best win # 21 # 23 or # 24 in that fatal final BCS Rankings, when The SEC has

ALL THESE TEAMS WHO BEAT ALL THESE TOP 10 teams in that fatal final BCS Rankings.

Not the least of which is that – WORST CASE :

SEC beat # 4 and # 6 or SEC beat # 5 and # 7.

Well, Aaron is a student at Alabama. So, he has not seen kingdaddy what we’ve seen.

Beauty Pageants are Won based upon how they look lined-up with the others.

At some point, much more than 6 of the top 9 in that fatal final poll, will be MEASURED.

It will NOT be that Florida was ranked # 2 at game time. It will BE that Choklahoma, Southern California, Stanford, Oregon State and Texas will be barely ranked at all – NOT 6 OF THE TOP 9.

Jeff Schultz does not address how what Choklahoma does, affects this, or what Stanford does, or what Texas does, or what Oregon State does, or what Southern California does – for if these teams are not highly ranked up there with 6 of the top 9 as SEC will be, their argument TODAY of where they are ranked today in the actual BCS Rankings Poll today, is OUT THE WINDOW and thus

BUMP-UP

for beating The other SEC teams to be The Best of The Best Conference 2012.

Not The Best Conference 6 prior years, but The Best Conference 2012. Yes, our teams beat up on each other. We likewise would beat up on ANY TEAM whose best win is over # 21 or # 23 or # 24 in that fatal final BCS Rankings Poll.

The SEC represents not 14 schools against the other 106, but IN FACT the MAJORITY of The College Football World. David Pollack, ESPN – who replaced Craig James – a perfect example of the huge impact The SEC has on The College Football Landscape. We dominate the attendance. Our fans are not just oh well, we’re undefeated, maybe we can win nc 2012 – we’ve BEEN HERE for the long haul. We affect the thinking of the college football world. Take this blog for example, I have been carrying on about THIS for days on end with all comers.

Now, this is The Topic for THIS BLOG.

Duh.

It will get NOTHING BUT BIGGER up to and AFTER 4 pm Sat Dec 1

# 12 Choklahoma played 2 teams, LOST BOTH. Always chokes. Always loses its bowl game. Never ready to play big teams. They have 3 games left against nobodies. Their season is an unranked season if they lose to lowly 6-4 TCU or lowly 5-4 West Virginia or lowly 6-3 Oklahoma State, none of which are ranked teams.

# 13 Stanford LOST to 6-4 Washington for God’s sake. Has to play Oregon & UCLA. Talk to me about Stanford’s BCS Ranking that fatal final BCS Rankings December 2 ?

# 15 Texas LOST to 5-4 West Virginia for God’s sake. Plays Kansas State (and TCU) bunch of over-rated nothings left in the Big XII with 10 teams and no Big XII Championship Game any longer. # 9 Texas A & M quit the conference # 14 Nebraska quit the conference. If Kansas State played # 9 Texas A & M or # 14 Nebraska, what would they do ? Kansas State gets to be nc because they beat what right now is # 15 Texas when after they lose they’re # 21 with their horrible loss to West Virginia.

# 16 Oregon State LOST to 6-4 Washington, now they play Oregon. Oregon State is no damn good. They lose to Oregon and where do they end up in that fatal final BCS Rankings # 23.

# 18 Southern California LOST ALREADY 3 LOSSES INCLUDING TO 5-5 ARIZONA STATE. They play now UCLA and Notre Dame. That’s what ? # 24 in that fatal final BCS Rankings Poll December 2 ? This is the “BEST WIN by Oregon and by Notre Dame.”

Now I will be MORE THAN HAPPY to discuss with you who Alabama beat beating # 7 BCS LSU and who # 7 BCS LSU beat beating # 8 BCS Texas A & M and beating # 9 BCS South Carolina. I will be MORE THAN HAPPY to discuss with you who Georgia beat beating # 6 Florida and who # 6 BCS Florida beat beating # 7 BCS LSU, beating # 8 BCS Texas A & M, and beating # 9 BCS South Carolina.

First off Norte Dame should NOT even be in the conversation as the OFFICIALS gave them 3 games. Next until one of those teams from the other conferences beats Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU or South Carolina then they JUST don’t belong in the Mythical National Championship game. SEC teams have won 6 straight MNC and except for 2 years ago if my memory serves me correct they weren’t even close games.

(4) Ohio State at HOME LOST 2007 to a 9-4 Illinois, yet played for NC
(5) LSU 2007 LOST to a 8-5 Kentucky team, yet Won NC
(6) LSU 2007 ALSO LOST at HOME to a 8-5 Arkansas giving up 50 pts, Won NC
(7) FL LOST double-digits to Auburn 2006, yet Won NC
(8) Choklahoma 2003 LOST 7-35 to Kansas St 4-LOSS, yet played NC
(9) LSU 2003 LOST 7-19 to an 8-5 FL, yet played for and Won NC
(10) Nebraska 2001 LOST by 26 pts, yet played for NC
(11) Florida State 2000 LOST to Miami, yet played for NC
(12) Florida State 1998 LOST to 7-5 NC State 7-24, yet played for NC

There is a LONG HISTORY of this, and more importantly, it is WHO you BEAT that matters while Notre Dame, Kansas State and Oregon cannot match the wins ALREADY by either Alabama over # 7 LSU nor Georgia over # 6 Florida; and when The SEC Championship Game is played 4 pm a day AFTER on Saturday than the PAC-12 CHUMPionship Game, there will be a

now its my turn to pray for your poor delusional li-n a$$. So all the pollsters in the country are lying about where UGA should be ranked? Tell me Shack, have they taught computers to lie now? LOL, I guess you’re smarter than everyone else, or you’re just a fool. I’m guessing somewhere in the middle…you’re a joker telling lies just to see who you can bother. Time to go to the basketball blog son, cause you know sheet about football…

Slow down king…. Georgia got past Florida, that’s a good win…. Then barely slipping by Tennessee and Kentucky told me something is wrong with this team… The south Carolina southern smack down told me lots more about the lack of “team” in Athens, it was a debacle on every level. I didn’t learn much from the rest of the games, as Georgia played awful schedule….

Seems like preseason talk… How good Georgia is supposed to b, not what they achieved… Have another gulp of kool aid…. Better make reservations for annual pilgrimage to Orlando… Capital1 here come the dawgs

How you goung to improve a 9-1 team that just finds ways to win? SC was an abberation. You form your theory behind 10% of our game. As an expert, lol, I guess hating a team you see what you want to see. Well, keep whinning, while we keep winning. We weren’t a great team, but we have recovered. What are you going to do when we are 11-1 going into the SEC-CG? Keep showing everybody how smart you are by saying the Dawgs are bottom tier SEC, LOL. Everybody else sees you for what you really are except the other idiots that hate us beyond reason and logic…Forever be known as SHACKLED BY A DAWG…LOL…

Here come the hypocrites …”a team that just finds ways to win” seems like that argument was bogus when it’s about ND (except they won all their games and had tougher schedule), but for Georgia it’s valid… U showed ur true colors…. Always making an excuse for bulldawgs shortcomings… As soon as richt goes, Georgia will have a chance… Stop spreading the bs, only truth sets us free

If not for richt, team wld b undefeated

If you are calling the polls rigged or wrong or stupid, then what do you make of the rankings of three teams that haven’t played BAMA, OR LSU, OR SC, OR T A&M, OR UF, OR EVEN THE LOWLY DAWGS, LOL. Your arguement is full of holes. It’s the SEC baby, winners of the last 5-6 NCs. Go ahead and count us out. Just shows you aren’t very bright. There was so much hope for you when you were young, lol…

Top recruiting classes year in and year out, but never able to win the big game…. Right is a choker, doesn’t know how to get guys ready for the really big games…..

Yeah, if you don’t finish #1 out of over 100 teams, over 99 failed and only one team was a winner. Hope you teach your children how to lose with class. #1 or nothing, lol. You must be very miserable since life teaches you different. Over a billion people on this earth, are you #1 or just another loser like the other 999,999,999+ losers, lmaoff…

Georgia can beat oregon–the dogs D can shut down their gimmick offense and the O can put up big points against their weak D. After a big win over alabama and a couple of upsets, the Dogs will be in the BCS title game—mark it down!

Mark Richt has taken this team to the SECCG 6 times in 13 years. He’s won the SEC twice(not done since 1982), finished #2 in final AP poll twice. BEST COACH UGA HAS EVER HAD!
When we do win the NC, there will be no worries of probations, sanctions, or restictions.

How do you think we could ever attract another decent coach.
“Let me get this right, the last guy won 10 games a year and SEC Championships but THATS NOT GOOD ENOUGH?” “So I have to win NAT Champ or I fired?” “No thank you I’ll go where people aren’t delusional.”

alabama–fluke loss against a*M–they just came out flat. Bama beats ga easy in the SEC title game and gets back in the BCS title match against oregon. Alabama will beat oregon by 10===book it.

I say two or all three lose a game! USC has to beat Notre Dame…Oregon has too much to go through and an 8-2 Texas team that has been playing better is nothing to sniff at. I would love to see Oregon vs an SEC team! But if the NC game is Kansas St. or Notre Dame vs anybody other that an SEC team that will not determine who is the best in the country. Seriously do you think Vegas would have ANY of those teams favored over Bama, or LSU..NO! Do you think K State or N Dame would be favored over USCe or Georgia or Texas A&M? NO!

So the logic that everyone goes back to is the subjective test of who is better? Why not say whoever earns ticket on field gets to play in bcscg? An undefeated team from power conference gets ticket punched…. These aren’t my rules, it’s just the way things are…. I would hate a KST vs ND game, but if those are last two guys standing, that will b game… Would love to see Oregon vs SEC, but looks like that won’t happen, because SEC didn’t deliver

As far as richt is concerned, ur comments r right on script… Ur probably one of those Atlanta brave apologists too, talking about how many playoffs were made, not how many rings were won…. Keep cheering for all those other bcs sec championship teams from other schools and tell yourself that your happy coming up short time and time again…. A winner would trade all those participation ribbons in for a championship…. It’s sad

K State vs. ND, two teams that don’t play a championship game. If the rules work like that, why play a SEC championship game.

I guess that’s the price of mega-conferences. Just making it to the CG is a great accomplishment. Too bad we have to beat each other up. I would be happy with less Conference games, but only if they are replaced with only quality OOC…No Cupcakes…play a real team or don’t waste your time. Play out of a major conference or take the week off…

Funny, all of you MORONS who keep saying “Georgia had their chance but blew it by losing to SCAR blah bitty blah”

did you forget in 2007 when LSU lost 2 games and got in and won the NC or last year when Bama lost at home to LSU and didn’t even make the SEC title game and still got in and won the NC??!?!?!

Did we forget that?! How come it is okay for those teams, in your moronic opinions, to lose games at home, not make the SEC title game and yet you don’t consider them to “have had their chances and blown them” THAT is the essence of blowing your chance and yet they still got in

It is a double standard with the media et. al. when it comes to Georgia…just is…IT IS NOT PARANOIA IF THEY ARE OUT TO GET YOU!
