It's really academic at this point. If we win out, we will be a top ten team and could easily be a top 5 team.

We are back where we control most (not all) of our destiny.

If we win out, we'll be FLA, MISS St, Clemson, and 'bama. Sagarin's computer rates us #12 in the country with the #11 hardest schedule.

I guess there's a remote chance that we could cause the BCS to have to think about us for the championship game under those circumstances, if other teams lose. Hard to believe.

Sagarin has SC as #16. People never know how to read his rankings. You gotta look at ELO_PURE.

Are you really thinking that the BCS would think of SC for the BCS NCG with 2 losses? No chance.

I think he agrees with you. Probably not, but not impossible.

Duke got twice as many votes as Florida in the coaches poll. Never thought that would happen either.

I said Sagarin, not the part used by BCS. We're 12th according to HIS rankings. I was aware that PURE_ELO (is this different from ELO_CHESS?) is the one used by BCS. I don't know who "people" are. Everyone besides you, I guess?

I said think of, not go with. Yes, I think it's possible that there will exist scenarios where we will be part of the conversation going into the SECCG. No, I don't think there's any way we actually get there.

If we win out and get to the SECCG, and Oregon and FSU and Ohio St and Baylor lose games , then you will see talking heads moving icons around on ESPN showing circumstances where the planets align and we move in. It won't happen, but it would be hilarious.

If we win out, we will definitely be a top 10 team, its gonna be hard to be top 5 with 2 losses, though it depends a lot on how the top teams beat each other up.

You're delusional if you're thinking a top 5 team.

Lots of football left, but if we win out and Clemson doesn't lose another game until we beat them, that could be another win against a top 5 team.

Let's say we go to ATL and Bama is undefeated at #1, and we beat them.

Oregon has a loss, as does FSU, OSU and baylor. Man, that would be interesting. If oregon loses two games and the same scenario happens, it could be a Bama/ Cocks rematch in the Rose Bowl.

My bet at us winning the NC @ 33/1 is still alive!

I would certainly want to win that game. I think I would go insane after an SEC Title win. I just hope that when that day does come, I don't go well we won it all.. NOw what?

Oh yeah, lets do it again.

SC better watch out. I think Mizzou beats Ole Miss, but loses to A&M. It'd create a three way tie for the SEC East, but the higher BCS team goes. If Clemson beats SC, that'd sink SC in the polls and Mizzou would go.

Natty title is out of reach.

Sugar Bowl is very much in play, however, and would be amazing.

I think, the only way SC gets into the Sugar Bowl is that they win out, though, I don't see them winning the SECCG.

I don't believe that is how it works. If there is a 3 tie it goes to divisional record and Mizzou would go because 1 of their 2 losses is not in the division. But if you are thinking a 3 way tie with 2 losses you are saying Auburn is gonna lose to UGA? Because if Auburn beats UGA there will be 3 way tie with 2 losses.

UGA will lose at least one more SEC game... This won't be an issue
