So now, does the 1 loss SEC go over an undefeated ACC or BIG 10?

    That is incorrect.

    Considering that Auburn would be a solid #3 in both human polls in that scenario, most of the computers would have to rank them #1 to overcome the weight of the human polls. There's no way that's happening.

    It might as long as OSU stays behind FSU. I'm pretty sure Auburn will go to #1 after beating Missouri, just not sure that OSU won't vault FSU if they beat MSU.

    Meyer really got his wish, easy conference with the first pick of recruits. Gotta give the guy credit, he set himself up perfectly.

    OSU's schedule is beyond terrible but nobody will remember that after they edge MSU in their championship game.

    Everyone in the media will just highlight their two 'exceptional' wins over Michigan and Michigan State and that, my friends, will see them safely into the game. Urban knew this when he took the job - fair play to him. There's no nicer door than a back one and he found it.

    FSU has played nobody of note other than Clemson this year too, but at least their team is pretty solid. They will murder OSU in the title game, IMO.

    Auburn would have to crush Mizzou to have any chance. A shame, but you have to play the game in this system and too many people want the SEC streak to end. It's going to happen now!

    I predict Auburn defeats Missouri and gets into the NC....and wins.....giving the SEC a 8 win NC run.

    tOSU is out after last night's squeaker win, ONLY due to the Wolverines decision to go for the 2 pt. conversion.

    To be fair, Ohio State still had to stop that 2 point conversion, which they did. And the reason Hoke went for it was that he didn't like his chances at all in overtime, as Ohio State was running the ball at will.

    When the dust settles next week, among FSU, OSU, Auburn, and Mizzou, the Buckeyes certainly won't have the worst SOS (FSU will), and they'll be undefeated if they beat a Top 10 Michigan State team. So I'm not sure they're "out" just yet. Add in the wildcard of Winston's possible legal issues, and there will be LOTS of controversy at this time next week.

    Once again, Auburn's strength of schedule is not that strong, either. Neither is Mizzou's. While both teams DO have a stronger SOS than either Ohio State or Florida State, it is not strong enough, IMO, to leapfrog either team, who are getting a lot of love from the writers and probably the coaches as well.

    There are too many story lines here. Meyer has yet to lose a game at Ohio State. Winston and the Noles are back to the 1990s level. There is most definitely SEC fatigue throughout the nation outside of the SEC. It would have been impossible to keep Bama out had they won and then beaten Mizzou (the champ MUST lose), but for a one loss team to do so? I don't see it.

    Top five teams:

    Team-------------------Ohio State-------------Florida State---------Auburn

    Team One.....................Mich State (11-1)..........Clemson (10-2).........Mizzou (11-1)
    Team Two.....................Wisconsin (9-3)...........Duke (10-2)...............Alabama (11-1)
    Team Three..................Iowa (8-4)....................Miami (9-3)...............LSU (9-3)
    Team Four...................Michigan (7-5).............Boston Coll (7-5).......Georgia (8-4)
    Team Five....................Penn State (7-5)............Maryland (7-5).........Texas A&M (8-4)

    It could happen, but I don't think it is enough.

    All the F$U fans that I know we're tickled to death that AU won. They wouldn't admit it, but they know they that they would rather play anyone other than Bama.

    Auburn's SOS is much stronger because the crap teams they played were better than the crap teams of the others. And they also beat Washington State, which intersects them into the Pac-10, which had a very strong conference as well. They may well come out of the SEC title game with a top 5 or #1 SOS.

    One team has played nobody and so they aren't as good as it looks. The other team has played nobody but they are pretty solid. Sounds a little prejudiced. How do we really know how good either team is?

    I have to agree, no way a one loss Auburn gets in over an undefeated O/F SU. Not saying they don't deserve it but its just not going to happen. GO SPARTY!!

    Palm's projected BCS rankings are out:

    It would seem that the gap between Ohio State (#2) and Mizzou (#4) is too large to be overcome if both teams win next week. Now, the gap between OSU and Auburn (#3)...it'll be interesting.

    4 of Auburn's opponents finished the season ranked - about twice what osu and fsu played.

    Hopefully the voters will look at the strength of schedule of all the top 4 teams and revote the order based on that. After all, aren't there penalties given to teams that don't play a hard schedule in the NCAA basketball playoffs when it comes to seeding?

    Has there ever been an undefeated team in the NCAA basketball tournament that wasn't a #1 seed?

    Urban already taking some stick...

    I may have edited the quote slightly for the sake of full disclosure. :)
