    Who plays in the National Title game?

    Assuming LSU is in, who do they face?

    Who knows. I'm always for the largest cluster **** for the BCS, so I'm hoping LSU loses, and as much goes wrong as possible for everything else.

    No idea. Next question?

    Also, don't assume that quite yet. They still have to play the to be #3 team in Arkansas and if they win that, they have to play Georgia, who (aside from this weekend) have been destroying people.

    I think Arkansas will beat LSU, then Alabama will lose to Georgia in the SEC championship.

    Alabama watches the 2 teams that didn't have to play in the SEC championship game get a bye to the national championship.

    Georgia: SEC champs
    Bama: SEC west champs
    LSU: neither SEC nor SEC west champs but national champs.

    That is an intriguing concept. I hope if that would play out, holy hell would break loose.

    Re: Who plays in the National Title game?

    2 teams from the same conference, especially one that has a conference championship game, have no business playing in the NC game together, ESPECIALLY if one has already beaten the other during the regular season.

    It's another BCS flaw. I have no problem if two teams from the same conference in that sort of situation are truly the best two teams in the country (and I think trying to "prove" that is arguable) ... but there are no stipulations regarding head-to-head and conference championship games poorly-created system.

    Everyone else is too inconsistent.

    How does losing one game to the #1 team make you inconsistent?

    Never said they weren't consistent, just that they have no business playing a team they have already lost to.

    For the sake of argument, what if no one else had only one loss? Do you think Alabama should be disqualified simply by virtue of one game?

    So what's your alternative?? Houston? Come on.. If Oklahoma or Oregon had taken care of business, I would have rather seen them get the spot..but if it stays like this, the alternatives would be a joke. What will you do, put Virginia tech in there because they're the next highest that hasn't played the #1 team..that logic sucks. They're a lot less deserving than bama. I don't want to see a rematch, but no one else stepped up..so this is what we should get.

    Will be interesting to see where Stanford is in the new BCS rankings. I assume the Pac-12 tiebreaker is head to head. But with Oregon's loss Stanford still has a shot at the Pac-12 North title.

    True, Oregon still has to be oregon state.. we know how those rivalries can go. OSU is worse than they've been for a long time, but its a rivalry..who knows
