SEC out of the BCS

#1
IF Ohio State and Florida State win their respectful championship games next week...Should they play for the Natl' Championship?

My opinion is that they should. Any week any team can win or lose. Auburn got lucky against an extremely good Bama team. LSU beat Auburn but lost to a .500 Miss St team.
If OSU and Fla St end up undefeated, they took care of business every week and deserve the chance.

And for those that say OSU got lucky against Michigan, if Hyde hadn't fumbled the last drive, OSU might have won by two touchdowns instead of 1 point. just sayin' lol



and here we go...........................................................................................................

If FSU and OSU both win out they should play in National Championship game. The SEC has a great marketing machine and I expect them to keep full court press on until final BCS rankings are published.

The SEC can scream all they want but you know they would be on the other side if you have undefeated SEC team that people were suggesting did not deserve to play for NC.

While the precedence is not there with the SEC bias out there I would not be surprised to see Auburn play if they win out. If Auburn loses I expect Saban to beat the drum that they deserve to play in NC despite not being able to get to conference championship.

A historical view of the BCS Championship.

Year___ Matchup

2007..... Florida 41, Ohio State 14
2008..... LSU 38, Ohio State 24
2009..... Florida 24, Oklahoma 14
2010..... Alabama 37, Texas 21
2011..... Auburn 22, Oregon 19
2012..... Alabama 21, LSU 0
2013..... Alabama 42, Notre Dame 14

Notice a pattern?

An SEC team has won the past 7 years.

We'll see. Urban isn't planning on suspending his "punchers" during the B1G champ game...what a guy :)

I don't think Ohio State beats Michigan State...but I didn't think Ohio State was going to go undefeated this year...so what do I know.

Auburn's AD is already pleading.

Slive is the best in the business...

What does that have to do with this year? Winning in the past does not guarantee or entitle a conference a spot in the championship every year.

True......

The SEC won that right for each of the past seven years.

If they sit out one year it won't hurt anything.
Seems like the other conferences are about due for a championship year.

It has been nearly a decade since it's happened.

Look, the SEC has the benefit of it's past in reputation. When there are one loss teams vying for a spot, the SEC is a lock to get one. In fact, didn't a team with more than 1 loss get in at some point from the SEC? Heck, the reputation is so strong that 2 teams can get in from the SEC at one time.

But be realistic. If 2 teams from other major conferences can win every game they play, they deserve to be in. That's the way it is, too bad. Next year with the playoff all arguments are moot anyhow.

I'm rooting for FSU, Mizzou, OSU to barely win their games, (and if I didnt go to Texas, Okie State to blow out OU). The resulting mass chaos would have 5 teams having a legit gripe to be in the championship game. That would be a fitting end to the BCS.

So many possibilities. If Ohio State and Auburn both lose, who deserves to go? Does Alabama reenter the conversation or does Missouri jump all the way to #2?

And still wonder if Auburn and Ohio State both win does the strength of opponent give Auburn enough gas to catch Ohio State?

If both AU and OSU win then human voters should place OSU #2 and they should play for NC. If they do otherwise it just shows bias towards SEC. I don't think we ever had a no-loss BCS conference team jumped over for a 1 loss team in NC that I can recall.

If both AU and OSU lose I think Mizz should play in NC. They won SEC and should be in NC game before a SEC team that did not even get to title game.

Are they allowed to play defense in the SEC championship game?

Or for that matter, offense in the UT/Baylor game?

At least they can blame that on the weather.
