Hastings - you make some good points. Meyer is a well respected coach and probably second behind Saban in the minds of most CFB fans at this point. FWIW, OSU closed as a 7 point favorite against us in that title game. Here is an interesting link on all the BCS CGs from Vegas Insider. While I don't like how Meyer left our program, I recognize he's a very strong coach, and don't view OSU unfavorably because of Meyer. The biggest issues to me in this discussion are SOS, which has been pretty weak for OSU for several years now, and the fact that one loss SEC Champs have proven themselves again and again. It may be cliche, but to be the best, you've got to beat the best. In a two team race, at this point in time, the SEC Champ has to be one of the teams, unless the SEC is just clearly way down. The SEC is down a bit this year. But the the conference that is closest - the PAC, doesn't have a horse in this race. And that goes to show what happens when conferences get more tough teams in them - the top teams pick up losses. I certainly won't lose any sleep over who ends up going, but IMO the BCS won't be determining the true national champion unless the SEC Champ is one of the two teams in the BCS CG.
