    First of all, it's a bit early to talk about three undefeated teams. There's a higher probability of a number of one loss teams fighting for a shot in the big game. I'm not sure ND can win out, but if they do why shouldn't they be in it? Their wins vs ranked teams from different conferences speaks for itself. Other than a TV contract, that is a huge benefit of an independent schedule. It removes the speculation of this conference vs that one. I'm a big fan of SEC, but what happens if there's not an undefeated SEC team, and 2 other teams that are? That's when the real problems start!

    A one loss SEC team is still the best team in the nation. No other Conference has the quality of teams that the SEC does. This season; LSU, Bama, So Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Oregon plays in a weak Conferenece and other than playing Oklahoma, who does Notre Dame really play? USC and Notre Dame always get the hype they don't deserve!
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    It's not a problem Mike. They'll just do what they've always done.

    Crunch The Numbers!

    Strength of Schedule(Vital) has to be looked at,
    Number of Games> Where a Conference Championship comes into play,
    Measure of win/loss> as per the voters

    This is why Houston, whether they won out or not last year, STILL wouldn't have made it into the BCS SHIP Game.

I guess it's just hopeless thinking on my part that with 3 undefeated teams ND would be left out. The tie breaker would be two key words. NOTRE DAME.

    Now that we're on the ND kick, i do shed a tear or two watching Rudy. Him sacking that GT QB and getting carried off the field, just a feel good story!
    Had a couple of lady engineers work for me - One from ND & one from Marquette - ITO the sun rises & sets where they walk so it is just not the FB team - being a BB fan I used to ask them regularly if any of the white Catholic boys played on the hardcourt or if they had to import their entertainers from the ghetto . It's a good day when ND gets beat at anything!!!!!!!!!!

    Bama is next on the Night Schedule.....and if the odds play out just right(Not likely) we could have another 1 vs. 2 on our hands. Lord help the talking heads if that happens.

    That one loss was to Tim Tebow in 09'.

    I think it's understood that the Tigers are a different animal @ Night, add in the 93,000+ Crazy Coonasses's cheering them on and the odds increase

    Where we don't play good is 11:00 a.m. with the chickens like we will next weekend. LOL!

    I've got a case of BBQ sauce I'll put on Oklahoma in the Notre Dame game.

    Easy fellas, I said I'm an SEC Fan... If there were a legit playoff system, I think it would likely be 2 SEC teams in the finals. However, in the current system, it is pure speculation (or computer speculation), as it was with the previous system. On paper, ND plays as solid of a schedule as anyone outside the SEC. Oregon has looked good so far too. As for the Houstons and Boises, it's hard to put them in the mix with the big boys when they only play one or two decent teams a year. Much easier to "get up" and beat one or two decent teams than it is to go through the weekly grind of the big boys. Then if you throw rivalries into the mix, you can throw out the records, because it's going to be a tough game regardless of the rankings. I think LSU is a better team than the way they were playing prior to beating SC, but is that win diminished if SC craps out on the rest of the season? (which they have before) It shouldn't but how does it factor into the BCS if SC loses a couple more games?

    SC losses would be calculated in.

    This is also the reason the Computers loved LSU last year. LSU beat Oregon for the season opener, then Oregon went on to win 12 games, similar with WVU. Then LSU beat Bama who also went on to win the rest of their games.

    *angry face*> looking back at the 2011 schedule. ANY other team in the nation and we'd have bought home the crystal. Twice in one year, not a chance.

    Man that's going to hurt for a long time.

    BS. ND plays the toughest schedule in the country. They'll go. Same if there is 1 loss for the teams.

    The SEC could have 3 1 loss teams after The SEC Champ Game.
