Default Gamecocks to #5 after this weekend?

All it would take is:

Ohio St win over Michigan St
Oklahoma win over Oklahoma St
Arizona St win over Stanford

We are currently at #8 in BCS. Losses by Stanford and Oklahoma St move us up to #6 and a loss by #10 Michigan St keeps them from jumping ahead of us . . . that leaves only Missouri/Auburn between us and #5. I think we move ahead of the loser of that game either way - especially if it is a convincing win. We would have head-to-head over Missouri if they lost and an Auburn loss might have pollsters thinking twice about the two last second miracle wins that got them ranked that high in the first place.

Won't really matter except to illustrate the problem with the 2-per conference BCS rule.

Plus, I think Michigan State would, and rightly so, jump us if they win. And Ohio State may not fall behind us even though their schedule is perceived as soft.

Agreed . . . That's why I said Ohio St would have to beat Michigan St in order for us to crack the top 5.

#1 Florida State
#2 Ohio State
#3 Auburn/Missouri winner, or Alabama)
#4 Alabama or Auburn/Missouri winner
#5 South Carolina
#6 Auburn/Missouri loser
#7 Arizona St
#8 Oklahoma St
#9 Baylor
#10 Oregon or Michigan St

You're right that it wont really matter in terms of post-season, except that it would hav us positioned well for a first ever top 5 or higher finish after the bowl games play out.

No problem, Jesse. It appears that you and I had pretty much the same thoughts. I could see a scenario where we are anywhere from #4-#6, depending on a lot of things. And maybe a Top 3 finish at the end of the year. Oh, if we had not lost to Tennessee, but woulda, coulda, shoulda!!

Just win our bowl and we should be a lock for our highest finish ever.

Arizona St. Is ranked #11. I think if they beat Stanford they will jump ahead if us.
The people in the polls are gonna rank teams that made a championship game ahead of us.

Just think about what UCF and Mizzou are thinking "If we hadn't lost to South Carolina. "

I know the transitive property doesn't apply to football but Ok St beat Baylor 49-17 while Oklahoma lost to Baylor 41-12 and this game will be in stillwater. It seems like a bit of a stretch to predict a loss there.

Probably the same thing Carolina fans are saying about our loss to Tennessee.

Oklahoma almost always beats Oklahoma State. OU leads the series 83-17-7.

Finishing top 5 for the youngest team in the country would be huge

With all due respect. At this point who cares what our ranking is. Ill settled for msu jumping us if that means osu loses. I hate osu. Im sick of hearing about them. Im sick of the crying that comes from there. Im sick of my hometown being full of them.

Pretty sure if we were to somehow crack the top 4 we'd be a required BCS at-large pick

I think all three of those will happen, and it will highlight the stupidity behind the two team limit for the BCS bowls. If the #5 team in the country does not get a spot in one of the top five bowls, something is terribly wrong.

If Ohio St loses to MSU, which I think they will, can we improve our bowl bid by the SEC winner getting into the NCG?
