I haven't really thought about this since Bama lost last night... but now that I am...
IF Bama doesn't make it to the National Title game, it hurts us, mainly because they would then be taking the Bowl Spot that should be ours.
So at this point, we need two of Notre Dame, Kansas State and/or Oregon to take a loss. That would put Bama up against the sole undefeated team in the NC game.
I _hate_ Bama... but we kinda needed them to do well to have a better bowl game... Feeling extra happy for Texas A&M tho, Looks like they can hang in the SEC, mad props.
