And we lose one...but only one in the last 2 years.this week will be a step in the right direction.....we hope...
The alabama football program took a step backward in our drive for back to back championships,but all is not lost.were just gonna need a little help....lets look at what we need this week.
FIRST and FOREMOST Alabama has to take care of Ole Miss in harsh fasion..sorry Ole Miss fans but we need to run the score up,totaly dominate this game,and win back some of the voters.It is Alabama football fresh in the minds of all that vote and you will be surprised what a dominate win will do here..many will be quick to write the Bama loss to S.C. off as a "Well they slipped but I knew Bama was better than that"..and hop on a Alabama is gonna charge back and put it's self in the title hunt bandwagon..makes for great headlines...no,it's not fair but its true....but we MUST win and win big...
# 1 Ohio State plays AT # 18 Wisconsin....an upset here would go a LONG way to help put another big glass football in our reach...this is really the only shot at a loss I feel OSU has...and unless they fall our road is gonna be tuff..all we have to do is end up at #2 in the final BCS poll (ha and the 1st is not even out yet)...but yes a loss by Ohio St helps a TON.
next too look at is Oregon and UCLA ...eh Oregon is at home and well UCLA kinda sucks..BUT....(yes there is a but)..UCLA did beat Texas...so there is hope for an upset here and a 1 loss Oregon will not make it to the big dance...
another big opportunity this week comes if Texas rights the ship and removes Nebraska as an undefeated team...
in a perfect world we see OSU,Oregon and Nebraska lose...all would drop to 9th or worse...Auburn beats Arkansas..(yes I bleed crimson and utterly HATE Auburn,but sometimes you have to pull for the bigger picture)..
that would give us an AP poll standing of
#1 Boise State
EVEN BETTER...it would 'most likley'...give us a 1st BCS poll of
#4 Boise State
#5 Ohio State
based on computer numbers TCU will be hard pressed to make the top 5 ....the Auburn/Oklahoma could go ither way...now remember thats in a perfect world givin 3 upsets in the top 10 this Saturday.
my prob outlook for Alabama in the first BCS poll this week has them at #6 or #7 but ....if we win out...with Auburn,LSU and the SEC championship game still too play..a loss by any of the top 5 and it's an ..EASY EASY climb up to the 2nd spot in the BCS
