If these were the only possible outcomes, would you rather be division champ and go to a lesser bowl with a loss in the championship game, or maximize our chances of getting into a BCS bowl by finishing second in the East to UF/UGA/Mizzou but having a single loss?
Gotta go with 11-1 2nd in the East since under that scenario we can still record our fewest losses ever. Now if you said 11-1 1st in the East with a chance to win the SEC or 11-1 Second in the East with a chance to go to BCS bowl depending on how the West shakes out that would be a little different.
