Alabama’s highest ranked opponent so far this year is Michigan at 22. Kansas State, on the other hand, has beaten the BCS 8th ranked team and the BCS 19th ranked team on their home fields. I think that maybe ‘Bama is resting on its laurels.

The SEC is the Obama of the NCAA. No matter what they do, the media will root for them.

The more Oregon wins the farther down in the rankings it gets. Anti West Coast bias? Alabama’s schedule is the weakest of the lot.

KSU barely edged Oregon for the #3 spot. Based on the schedule, Oregon will be in the BCS Championship game if they go undefeated. If that happens, the only way KSU gets in is if they go undefeated, and both Alabama and Florida lose a game.

For you Notre Dame lovers and haters, OU and USC will crush ND.

While ND is much improved, speed kills; and ND doesn’t have nearly enough to stay with OU or USC.

I think K-State is gonna get screwed this year.

BCS poll doesn't mean that much at this point in the season, it will play itself out.

Bama/Gators should meet in the SEC final..both undefeated going in. Loser is likely done. Even if it's an incredibly close game, say decided by a last second FG, or by a disputed play, there is almost no way that the voters, unlike the computers, will vote for a rematch again.

K-State has great wins, against top ranked opponents, ON THE ROAD. But their best body of work is behind them. Remaining schedule isn't tat strong.

If, IF Ducks win out...that means in upcoming weeks they will beat Stanford, OSU, and Southern Cal TWICE..

In that case, Ducks will play Bama/Gators winner for the title.

K-State gets screwed.

Oh, did you think I forgot ND? Not too worry, Sooners will end that story line next week...OU has an outside chance at playing for the title, if 2-3 of the undefeated teams ahead somehow stumble. But to put themselves into the picture as the 1 loss team that deserves a title game slot, they will need a BIG STATEMENT GAME.. and ND is the target. Sooners have to, want to, win this one big..

Assume that K-State and OU both end up with one loss. Since K-State beat OU, ( and on the road) you have to give the voters in the two human polls a BIG reason to jump them ahead in the polls.

Either FL or AL will lose a game. They will play each other in the SEC championship.

Yeah, and I guess the media is the reason the SEC has won six consecutive NCAA titles?

Also, the ND QB Golston is going to finally cost them a game.

And, actually, you're wrong about that. The media picked USC as pre-season #1 and the favorite to win the national championship. Then when USC lost to Stanford, the media had a brief courtship with Florida State, until they lost. The media has been actively trying to find a #1 team and NCAA champion not from the SEC. But so far, their efforts have been a failure.

The Mississippi State University destroyed Middle Tennessee State 45-3 this past Saturday, and will go on and defeat Middle Alabama State University in Tuscaloosa. A Maroon storm is rising out of the west, and will devour all that’s in its path. Led by Dan the Man Mullen, The Mississippi State University will sweep all that’s before it and win the National Championship.

Let’s see, past 6 champions are (starting with last year) Alabama, Auburn, Alabama, Florida, LSU, and Florida....I would say the SEC has earned its rep, and when they play the out of conference teams in the championship, they smoke em. Its OK, I know its hard to watch the PAC10, what with your bestest team being sanctioned into oblivion, and the pretender Oregone team fading at the end every year.

You’re funny. Let’s take a look at how SEC fans vote and compare that to the PAC-whatever and the BIG-whatevers. I don’t think the media like the SEC very much. The SEC plays football the way conservatives want the government run. Efficiently. Constitutionally conservatively. Etc.

No way if K-State is unbeaten that they won’t be in the title game.

The people who think the SEC isn’t that good, are basing their opinions on watching the Tennessee Volunteers play.

First, and most important..Saturday was a really good game for us, and now, Georgia is next to fall..

But seriously, re K state..Bama/Gators winner gets one spot in the title game...we agree on that. But if Wildcats and Ducks both win out..and look at who Oregon will have beaten..I can't see K-state jumping them...

Can't wait for 4 team format to start..

I updated it to reflect the recent additions to the SEC.

Who will they have beaten if K-State wins out? TCU, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Texas. Check the rankings on them and compare that with Oregon's opponents.

This was the same Mizzou team that said the SEC played old man football. Don't give them a pass, they don't deserve it. Mizzou will make Kentucky and Vanderbilt look like football powerhouses before they're through. If Missouri never saw the inside of a bowl game again without first buying a ticket then I'd die a happy man.

The Aggies are doing better than Mizzou, but I don’t see them knocking off the Alabamas and LSUs any time soon.

A&M is reaping the benefits of jumping to the SEC, they are already starting to make inroads into UT’s recruiting dominance in the State. And unlike UT, they actually have a coaching staff that knows how to coach them up. I think Manziel could win the Heisman before he is done in College Station.
