    Agreed. I don't want to see an Alabama/LSU rematch.

    Wouldn't LSU still get in?

    Arkansas should get in if they beat LSU - but is there a rule you can't be in the National Championship if you don't win your conference championship game?

    Re: man i hope alabama and lsu lose next week

    Here is what you should root for:

    1.) AU over Bama (this isn't going to happen though)...I'd pencil Bama in the championship game.

    2.) Arky to beat LSU and then lose to Georgia in the SEC championship. In this scenario, I think OSU will jump Arky and match up against Bama.

    3.) If LSU beats Arky, but loses to Georgia in the SEC championship it would offer OSU a chance, but here I think they go for the rematch of Bama vs OSU.

    Of course OSU needs to beat OU first as well.

    I see either a rematch of LSU-Bama OR OSU-Bama as most likely right now.

    Root for LSU and Auburn. That would give Arkansas and Alabama two losses, effectively eliminating them from the championship discussion. If Arkansas and Auburn win, there's still potential for an Arkansas-LSU rematch if the Razorbacks beat Georgia in the SEC title game.

    I don't know too many ISU fans that will be rooting for Auburn

    Re: man i hope alabama and lsu lose next week

    Digging this one up, since we have the LSU/Arkansas game in an hour. So...if we don't want a SEC echo chamber rematch between LSU and Alabama, we should root for LSU and Auburn (that makes me sick to think about, let alone type). Or would an Arkansas win do more good to eliminate all the (major conference) undefeated teams? I think an Arkansas win would just help create an all-SEC NC game for sure (since you'll have 3 teams at the top who all have 1 loss against each other...and because the losses have all been to the 1-3 ranked teams, the BCS wouldn't put in an 1 loss OSU team for the NC).

    I mean, the SEC is going to be in it no matter what, but I would definitely like things to play out in order to keep it from being an all-SEC event. It is looking dire. I think an Arkansas win would just create an SEC echo-chamber situation, but maybe I'm not considering the impact of the championship game?

    Re: man i hope alabama and lsu lose next week

    i will be cheering for auburn. i couldn't care less who their coach is. Alabama losing presumably helps ISU.

    Still can't accept the fact that the BCS may take 2 B1G teams and only 1 Big 12 team.

    The question would be how far LSU would drop if they lost. I have a feeling they'll drop a lot less than OSU did, probably still be in the title game if they lose even, both because the loss isnt viewed as badly as OSU's to us and because the human voters have a massive hard on for the SEC. So in that case you might want them to win and then Alabama to lose opening up the opportunity for OSU to slide in with a win over OU.

    Yeah, that's pretty much a joke. If not for auto-bids they barely deserve one bid.

    Re: man i hope alabama and lsu lose next week

    Watching Houston today, I'm really not sure they would belong in the title game. I just don't see it.

    Sure, they're starting to get the offense moving, but Keenum is getting hammered by the Tulsa defense. I picture them against LSU, and there's no way that ends well for Houston.


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