After THE O once again got smashed by ol' school Stanford the road to the last BCS championship is clear if 'Bama and FSU win out. (Interesting commentary by FOX Sports Chris Landry who diagnosed that once Stanford stops the Oregon's inside run the wheels come off their offense). Not looking like an interesting slate of games this week with the highlights of UGA with Gurley back @ War Eagle, Stanford @ USC, and Ok State @ Texas.

The seas have parted for FSU: no tough games remain for them (including Florida and the ACC championship). They are a mortal lock for the title game.

Alabama, conversely, still has some work to do: Auburn and Missouri (SEC Champ game) are both looking much tougher than expected back in September. They should prevail.

That, of course, leaves Ohio State out in the cold... again. Probably just as well: I’d have to believe they would be embarrassed vs. either of the top two... maybe even by 7 or 8 of the top 10.

What’s funny are the SEC fans (and Ohio State fans) all over Facebook trying to trash-talk the Seminoles, who have beaten (and destroyed) two top-10 teams this year.

I’d say it was the other way around...Oregon couldn’t consistently stop Stanford’s inside run in less that 4 or 5 yards. More interesting is how Baylor can’t seem to get any respect. They’re undefeated and they can’t pull enough points to pull in front of Stanford.

I think the Buckeyeds will avoid going back to the SEC at all costs. They get pounded every time. They best stick with the Rose bowl.

Bama is clearly the team to beat and only a within-conference game will see them defeated, maybe.

Still, you have to kill the king to be the king. hasn’t happened just yet. Not saying it won’t, but my money goes the other way.

If both should win out, it will be an interesting game.

Roll Tide.

Bama and FSU should win out..it'll be a great championship game...It's really fascinating, and tricky, to guess what happens if one of them stumbles. I can't see FSU losing..(and BTW..the game against Florida will be really, really ugly..I was at the Vandy game, and the Gator Nation ain't happy with Coach "Boom") so the only possible upset is if Auburn beats Bama...and I give them a chance.. it's at Auburn..lord knows what they'll do to/at Toomer's Corner if they win.

Assume Bama loses..very likely a close game..do they drop behind OSU and Baylor? The SEC championship won't help Bama in the polls, they'll play either SC or Missouri..Clemson will have buried the Gamecocks prior, and the Aggies will have beaten Mizzou..so that's no help.

If both Baylor and OSU win out..I think Baylor could jump OSU in the polls..

I'm still not sold on OSU..because they haven't really been tested. I think that MSU can take them in the B1G championship..

Can't wait until next year for the 4 way playoff..

One of the sports sites did a comparison of "Boom" and Zook and they have almost identical overall records at the same point in their coaching careers at UF. No wonder Gator fans are not happy. Boom = Zook II.

I read that....seems like BEVO may have dodged a bullet. Real question is..if Boom goes bust after the season..who do you replace him with? The Gator AD is under the gun here..Boom was his hand-picked choice..part of me wants to cut Will some slack..they had a great season last year, and all the injuries this year really hurt..but even I could see that Driskel couldn’t throw the ball down the field...and with SEC defenses you can’t have a one-dimensional offense..I think that Will may be a superb DC, but just not equipped to be a head coach..

USC should be ranked after Coach O and his Trojans massacre the Stanford Indians in the Coliseum this Saturday.

Fla state looks a lot like the teams in the 90s. What they did to Miami was pretty damn impressive. They destroy people and don’t use goofy stuff like orygun which stanfurd exposed mightily AGAIN. ( I went to cal )

I think it will be a 3 pt spread or less with Bama for the bcs championship

Of course they and Bama still have some work to do

Thanks for the recognition of my team’s game, Okla. State @ UTex, as one of the premier games of the weekend. It should be a battle but I see a victory by OkSt that then lines them up for a chance to take down the Baylor Bears for the Big 12 Conference championship the next Saturday. Glad that game will in Stillwater instead of Waco...

I really hope if it’s FSU versus Alabama they FSU coaches better figure out fast that Nick Saban—when given a month to do coaching preparation—will figure out a way to slow down FSU’s high-flying offense.

As a ‘Bama fan, I give ‘Bama a 50/50 change to win out. Auburn and Mizzou are both playing tough. If ‘Bama does win out, FSU will be a VERY tough game!

If Auaburn beats Bama, Bama won’t make it to the SEC championship. Auburn will, a fate worse than death to a Tider like me.

I’m not too worried, though. Maybe enxt year I will be.

“I’d have to believe they would be embarrassed vs. either of the top two... maybe even by 7 or 8 of the top 10.”

I think I agree as OSU has struggled to beat Northwestern and Iowa.

I think Stanford will smush OSU in the Rose Bowl too.

“USC should be ranked after Coach O and his Trojans massacre the Stanford Indians “

USC looks like Oregon, small and fast and beating up other teams with speed.

We saw that movie last thursday and the small and fast ducks did not fare so well.
