we also lost to a non-bowl eligible terrible UT team....I feel like we have lots of respect to be #8 with two losses.

We could be ranked #3 and still not go to a BCS bowl. The two teams per conference rule is garbage.
what are you talking about? Any top 4 team is guaranteed a BCS bowl bid per the rules.

We'd get more respect if we didn't lost to a horrible Tennessee team this year. That's what is killing us.

Not unless the conference already has 2 teams.

Conference can only get 3 teams in the BCS if 1 and 2 are not conference champs.

If we are ranked 3 and no other SEC team is above us we are an auto bid because of the 3-4 rule.
However, I think we would be #4 with MSU jumping us to #3.

Hypothetically, if at the end of the year the standings were as follows: 1.mizzou 2. Alabama 3. Auburn 4. South Carolina. Would all 4 be in bcs bowls? FYI I know there is no possible way for that to happen, just trying to figure out how that top 4 thing goes

I would find it incredible to see MSU go from #20 to #3 in one week just by beating OSU....


I hope the scenario above plays out, just so people can see how senseless the whole "2 team max per conference" rule really is...

It would be incredible as MSU is ranked #10 not #20.
