Yes, this has been a slaughter.


Are the Gators and Sooners on a possible collision course for the MNC? I hope so. I was hoping for a Southern Cal/Florida match up in the preseason, but a UF/OU game would be just as good. Let's just hope nothing weird happens in these last couple weeks.

Oklahoma with another long drive as they have gone 63 yards on 14 plays and now face a 4th and goal from the 1 where they don't get in, Texas Tech has the ball on its own 1 yard line with 4:48 left in the 4th quarter, trailing 65-14.

Texas Tech goes 97 yards in 12 plays as Harrell connects on a 27 yard TD pass to Lewis to make the final score 65-21.

What appears is going to happen is this:

Texas and Oklahoma both make the BCS. As good as Tech is, they will probably only make the Cotton Bowl. Maybe Holiday.

If Oklahoma pounds OK-State like they did Tech, I can see OU move to #2, and Texas moving to #3.

One thing you need to consider is this: Alabama loses the Iron Bowl to Auburn, and Florida beats Alabama in the SEC Championship. OU and Texas Move to #1 and #2.

IF OU beats MizzOU (remember you can't spell MizzOU without the OU) and ends up with the #2, or #1 position, It is possible to see the Red River Shoot Out #2 for the National Championship.

That'd be an instant classic. 2 of the best teams playing the game historically, and right now, and the 2 top teams from the top conference.

It's going to be an interesting finish kids.
A Playoff will not be any more fair than the BCS.
No matter what happens, Favre > Rodgers.
St. Louis Cardinals = Class of MLB.

If Florida wins the SEC, they will most likely jump the #2 team in the Big 12, therefore eliminating the chance of a Texas vs Oklahoma title game. I doubt a team that doesn't have a conference title will get a shot at the national title.

Red Raiders can still get in as well if the Sooners lose to Oklahoma State because they will be in the Big 12 championship game plus not a chance in hell Texas/USC/Penn State deserve to be in there over the Red Raiders IF that happens.

I would highly doubt the Big 12 National Championship as thefreak said, Florida should be there.

Is it just me or is everybody on here, as well as every sports analyst in the media, conveniently forgetting the rule that YOU CAN'T PLAY IN THE BCS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP IF YOU DON'T WIN YOUR CONFERENCE! Hence why Georgia--who was ranked #3--was robbed last year after LSU mysteriously jumped like 5 spots over them into the championship game after west virginia lost the last game of the regular season. The BCS stated this rule as their justification for georgia not making it, and in fact created it after the embarrassments of Oklahoma and Nebraska who both got throttled in the championship games after not winning their conferences.

So if this rule still applies, which it certainly must, then whichever 1 loss big 12 teams don't play in the big 12 championship are automatically inelligible to play in the national championship game, even if they are ranked #2, or maybe even #1 in the bcs poll. That's why i keep saying that if Florida loses to FSU then goes on to throttle alabama in the SEC championship, or if Missouri wins the big 12 championship, the BCS is in essence screwed because they will be forced to throw in USC or Utah over one of the 1 loss big 12 teams that did not make the big 12 championship, or the 1-loss alabama team. And what if oregon state wins next week to capture the pac 10 title? does that throw out USC as well? If missouri wins the big 12 title and/or florida loses a regular season game and wins the sec championship, the BCS is going to have A LOT of explaining to do.

It was after the year LSU beat OU 21-14 that they made the change. Not exactly a throttling after losing the Conference championship game they got beat bad in.

Last year was messed up. That's putting it mildly. We should have seen an Ohio State/Oklahoma Championship game. OU had won their conference and killed the #2 team in the nation (Seems to be a trend here) 38-17. They were ranked like 7th or so. But LSU, who was 8th, I believe, beat a #14 Tenessee 21-14.

Style points were worthless. A higer ranked team beat the 2nd, on the verge of being #1 team in the nation and were still left out in the cold. But thats the way it goes. Can't win them all.

No matter who matter who makes it in the BCS championship game, they deserve it.
