The computers put the Seminoles above Oregon. According to the composite computer rankings FSU is #1. Louisville was exposed as a fraud team and we don't have to worry about hearing them whine if they went undefeated and left out of the BCS championship game. If you are a SEC fan better hope 'Bama goes undefeated because all the other SEC teams except for undefeated MO and Auburn have multiple losses. I doubt MO will finish undefeated as their star QB Franklin is out for the season.

A down year for the SEC, and Bama isn’t as strong as in the past.

I doubt MO will finish undefeated as their star QB Franklin is out for the season.

As a Mizzou fan I never considered Franklin a star. Their red shirt freshmen Maty Mauk had a decent first game against a good Florida defense (295 passing). In high school he did have 68 TD passes and 24 rushing TD and that was just his Senior year.

All that being said I don't think they will go through the schedule they have left undefeated. This is the SEC.

Blame the NFL.

LSU lost 9 defensive players who would have been eligible this year to the NFL. They finally have a QB, and an offense, imagine if they had those NFL players back on defense!

FSU still has to play in state rivals Florida and Miami and a potential championship game against Virginia Tech. If it can win out then they would likely be in the BCS championship game.

The next 3 weeks will determine Oregon’s fate with contests against UCLA, Stanford, and (don’t laugh) Utah.

Missouri’s season may come down to it’s last conference game vs. Texas A&M and then the SEC championship game.

Alabama still needs to play the meatier part of their SEC conference schedule including match-ups against LSU and Auburn.

Ohio State should win out and would get into the BCS championship game if the other teams falter along the way.

There was the joke about THE Ohio State University getting blasted every time it played south of Interstate 10 by a SEC opponent. Technically, the Rose Bowl home of the BCS Championship Game is north of the I-10 in LA. :)

Right. Only six teams in the top 20. Their were 8 a couple of weeks ago before they started knocking each other out. And as strong as Alabama was in the past remember they lost a game in both their 2011 and 2012 National Championship seasons.

Bama would crush FSU.

Oregon has a shot to beat Bama because they can score on anybody.

Is this based off of the academics? Forgot, college football is the money engine for colleges that keep on hiking up the tuition.

Obviously, FSU’s win over Clemson was the highest-ranking game of the year. They deserve to be second for now (and first in the computers) but we’ll see what happens when Bama plays LSU and Oregon plays Stanford.

Baylor has yet to face a tough opponent but they’ll eventually have to play Texas Tech and Oklahoma.

Ohio State? They may waltz through the rest of the Big 10 schedule. I don’t see anyone else in the Big 10 putting up much of a fight even though I think they are overrated.

OSU pretender this year.

Texas Tech is a #20 team, look haggard against a down WVU that Maryland crushed.

Oregon will beat Stanford by 14-17...too many weapons.

Bama vs. the Ducks is our best Title game imo.

1. Bama
2. Oregon
3. Mizzou
4. FSU
5. Clemson...6. OSU

Hardly. Think of FSU like Texas A&M but with a suffocating defense. If A&M could play defense they would have pounded Alabama this year.

And that should be caution enough for anyone thinking about hiring AL defensive coordinator Kirby Smart...

I was at FSU from 1998-2002. Completed the Honors program. Graduated cum laude with a BA in English, minor in adolescent psychology and math. Florida State’s academics are on par with some of the best public universities in our country.

And they have one Hell of a football team...

except for undefeated MO and Auburn have multiple losses.

WRONG! Auburn has ONE (1) loss and that was early in the season to LSU. Auburn has and will continue to improve each week. They're number 1 in rushing in the SEC, as of this past week, not sure after Saturday if that still stands. Also moved up from non-ranked to #11 after beating "johnny football" Saturday. Just saying, don't count Auburn out just yet.

Shouldn't you also have to imagine that these former LSU players would have remained academically eligible, avoided arrest or refrained from smoking pot or doing other drugs?

While remianing academically eligible at an SEC school should be an easy task, your supposition requires a HUUUUUGE and wild imaginination.

The Iron Bowl is going to be a good one this year...I think Auburn has a great shot.

And I hope our AD is taking notes as to what happens when you ditch a bad coach.

Listen, Gator, I’ve cheered on the Gators in the passed. My best friend from HS went to UF, and I lived with a UF alumnus for 5 years after college. There’s a mutual respect there. I only root against UF when they play the Noles. Nothing wrong with that rivalry.

FSU will be proven a pretender if they play Bama.

They have one quality win...Clemson. And they have knocked off heavyweights Maryland, Bethune Cookman, Pitt, BC and Western powerhouse Nevada.

In the future they will tangle with overrated Miami and out of the rankings Florida. In between? Wake, NCState and Big Sky power Idaho.

If it is Bama - FSU it will be a snoozer.

Bama playing a two or three loss LSU is not going to help them as much as in the past. I’m an LSU fan. Yes, the way the defense (especially) played Saturday, I believe they could lose to Furman.

The real intriguing team is Baylor....Say they hang 70 on OU like they have everyone else, not that OU is anything great this year, but I think that would show Baylor should be considered a contender.

Keep in mind that the computer polls are like STDs. It counts not just who you played but who the teams you played played.

The SEC gets around this by scheduling Division I-A cupcakes so they don’t count against their strength of schedule.

” If A&M could play defense they would have pounded Alabama this year.”

And if a frog had wings it wouldn’t bump his A__ when he jumped.

Manziel is the only thing preventing A&M from being a 6/6 team. And he can get hurt as we have found out.

Did you play football? I am not against college ball but I do know that most of the college players have a bleak future if they don’t get drafted. I listened to a quarterback talking on tv the other night and he talked like a 12 year old. I guess he was one of the many that graduated with honors?

I tried for walk on in ‘98 and ‘99. Didn’t get past the first cut in ‘98. Made it to second cut in ‘99 but was a call-off for dailies if they needed tackling dummies.

At 6’2”, 350 lb., I was obviously noticeable, but I was more fat than muscle and had bad knees. I had fun anyway.

The facts are what they are...A&M, Georgia, Clemson don’t play good enough defense to win a championship. FSU is the total package.

I have come to the conclusion that there is a mass hypnosis in regards to the greatness of the SEC. When they play quality teams outside of the SEC their overall record is okay, but nothing to write home about (outside of National Championship games).

It is kind of like “no one every got fired for buying IBM” or the “greatness” of the Yankees. It is more of a mindset than an actual fact. SEC fans will point out their teams played ranked opponents, only the bulk of the reason they were ranked is because they are SEC. Circular logic!

Bama is awesome this year. FSU has a scary good defense and an awe inspiring quarterback. It will be a heck of game. I fully expect they will meet in the National Championship.

FSU by 7.

You read it hear first.

Alabama improves week by week.

Besides if A&M didn’t have JM, they would be winless right now. so What? Things are what they are
