Default Hypothetically, if we make it to ATL and win, do we get to the title game?

Or will that cause Ohio and FSU to be in the title game provided they both win out? I want us to make it to Atlanta and beat Bama, but I'd have mixed emotions if our victory meant the SEC didn't win another title to keep the streak alive.

Without several upsets, I don't see any way we could get to the national championship game. For this year, I think it's a pipe dream, even if we were to beat everyone by 60+, including the SEC championship game opponent.

Wait you are worried at all about the streak compared to us winning our first SEC ever?

I will only have elation. If the SEC streak gets snapped due to us winning the the title then so be it. No mixed emotions here.



From yesterday's results I don't think Mizzou is going to lose now. I had pretty high hopes until watching Ole Miss and ATM perform. Alas, it was just one game though.

It's very unlikely, but if we win out and beat Alabama in the SEC CG and win a BCS Bowl I think we will definitely finish in the top 5, which would make me very happy.

With the new playoff system coming do you understand how much more money the SEC has to split up? If we don't win the SEC championship and go the National Title game then yes we need another SEC team to win the National Title. Why do you think the SEC has such a lucrative television contract because the SEC wins championships, the more success other SEC schools have that means more money for us.

Not without several upsets occurring over the next few weeks. 07 LSU is the only 2 loss team to ever play for the NC, and they needed a lot of help to get there. IIRC, WV was a shoe-in that year but lost very unexpectedly to Pitt near the end of the season. Can't remember who else got bumped, but there were definitely several upsets.

I think it gets us to the title game, but not this year. A win over Bama and an SEC title gets us one step closer to the ultimate objective and hopefully enough momentum to drive us into the top four next year and the first playoffs.

Winning the SEC is harder than winning a MNC. We need the SEC championship.

Anyone who is questioning themselves if it is more important for the SEC to win the BCS or USC to win the SEC really needs to reconsider their fanhood.

So what? SEC teams make plenty of money from their TV deals because they win a lot and their fanbases are huge. One year out of the national championship game won't change any of that.

If you think any extra money we'd get from ANOTHER team winning the title outweighs the recruiting and profile boosts we'd PERSONALLY get from winning the SEC, you're out of your mind.

I like the SEC chant because it seems to bug Clemson fans a lot, but otherwise I don't care about how the rest of our conference does. They're our competition and most of the teams have a much better history than us, so it looks a little silly for Gamecock fans to champion the accomplishments of programs like Alabama, Florida, etc when we haven't reached that level. USC over errythang.

Default Re: Hypothetically, if we make it to ATL and win, do we get to the title game?

So the answer is simply "no."

You have Baylor, Ohio State, and then 1-loss Stanford and 1-loss Oregon...providing they each win out.

No way an undefeated team from any conference will get shunned over a 2 loss Gamecock squad.
