    What happened? We happened? Then everyone else happened along.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    That's my thought too. We started this. I honestly think we had a mental effect on all the other top teams (aside from the SEC ones, of course.)

    What, you mean you can't just show up and play for a championship if your name is ou or osu or oregon? TV's don't count for **** when the scoreboard says...you lose.

    The thing is the SEC will probably have the 1-2-3 teams this week...

    OU won't fall that far with the BCS Computers since Baylor is fairly regarded in the computer polls.

    UNFORTUNATELY...

    The human voters will just put the SEC schools up there because they don't know any better.

    1. LSU
    2. Alabama
    3. Arkansas

    Arkansas was biggest winner as result of the upsets. If they win next week and Alabama also wins, then Arkansas is in BCS Championship game and Alabama plays Georgia in SEC title game.

    If Arkansas wins and Alabama loses, then Arkansas will move to #1 and face Georgia.

    Well, at least ISU is bowl eligible and did it in dramatic fashion.

    Clearly a playoff is needed, 4 SEC teams winner take all.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Consider this hypothetical. Arkansas beats LSU. You have 3 SEC west teams all 11-1 and ranked 1-3 in the BCS. Whoever wins the division ends up losing to Georgia in the conference championship.

    Then do you have 2 teams play for the national championship who neither won their division????

    I don't know if this is true, but I heard the SEC West tiebreaker is BCS standings. I would rather be the 2nd ranked team in the BCS standings than the 1st. If you're 2nd you shouldn't move down, and you get a bye. The 1st ranked team will have to risk it all on a conference championship game and play another week.

    The BCS should have added rule after the Nebraska fiasco that you have to win your conference championship to play in the national title game.

    That actually isn't even very far-fetched. In fact, I think it would be a lock to happen under that scenario. It's going to be very tough now to not get an all SEC title game. Probably need 3 more losses combined between Ark LSU and Bama to stop it.

    I doubt LSU falls out of top 3 with a loss to Ark, so all that really does is reorder the deck. If ark loses sec title game, it's Bama-LSU, SEC West #2 vs. #3 for National Title.

    Need either another LSU upset or Bama loss. Even if voters tried to rig it, I think the computers will be too strong for SEC.
