Utah, Oregon & TCU will lose at least 1

Auburn will win the SEC championship

Boise & their WUSSY schedule will finish undefeated and (gulp) be in the bcs championship (though it aint right....)

Oklahoma will be in the BCS championship. (easiest path to an undefeated season from here on out)

LSU will have at LEAST 2 losses by years end. (les miles' luck will run out)


Point 1 - Oregon's 2 toughest remaining opponents are USC and UCLA. Both were beaten by Stanford which Oregon dropped 52 points on. The toughest opponent for TCU and Utah are each other. Ergo, the winner has a legit shot and running the table. It is likely one of the three runs the table.

Point 2 - Auburn has Alabama and LSU PLUS the SEC Championship game between then and an SEC crown. Keep this in mind while I address Points 3 AND 4.

Points 3 and 4 - Let's say you are right and OU gets to the BCS Championship. If that is so and you are right about Auburn winning the SEC then Point 3 can't possibly be right as to do so, Auburn would have won the SEC and beaten "5" ranked teams to do so and would over take Boise State based on strength of schedule which is huge in the BCS system.

If point 5 is correct then it is likely Auburn or Alabama win the SEC both with strength of schedules that are overwhelmingly superior to Boise State and if you say OU is in, then there is no place left for Boise State.

Basically the combination of predictions, as the they relate to one another, make it unlikely that all 5 can come to pass.


1. TCUvUtah will knock out 1...and the other will lose somewhere.
Oregon plays the ucla team that beat Texas...USC...a good Wash team that has some upsets under its belt...and Arizona PLUS their rivaly game @ ore.state.

2. Auburn can do what bama and lsu arent doing....PUT UP POINTS.
they have the best bet to win the SEC. LSU sucks and is 3 plays away from having 3 losses.
I love Bama but a young defense + not passing game = auburn's turn.

3. As other teams knock each other out Boise will be left undefeated
And since they are in the top they will be left with an invite to the BCS
i dont agree with it...but you know an undefeated Boise will get in this year


4. of all the undefeated teams, Oklahoma has the easiest path to the BCS championship.
They also seem the least likely to slip up and lose to a nobody.

Auburn can still lose a game and make it into the SEC championship. But that 1 loss will matter.



wouldnt it be awesome if OU beat the tar out of Boise...the team they beat years ago to get "on the stage"?


Again, the problem with your assertions is that the combination of the 5 leave little room for all to occur.

You insist that TCU, Utah AND Oregon will ALL slip up. If that is so, why isn't it just as likely that Boise State loses? The choke factor could come into play as they know that their NC hopes hang by a thread and even a poor showing never mind a loss would seal their fate. There are 9 other undefeated teams, all with better schedules. If 2 of the 9 remain undefeated, the BCS calculations will leave Boise St. out. This is clearly demonstrated by the newest BCS rankings.

You state that OU has the easiest path to the NC game. Do you relaize that the combined record of their remaining opponents is 26-11 including 2 undefeated teams in Mizzu and Ok State? That doesn't sound easy to me.

You also say that Auborn can lose a game and still make the SEC Championship while stating LSU will lose at least 2 games. One would assume they lose to Bama and Auburn. That would mean Auburn's 1 loss would likely be to Bama. This being the case, Auburn loses out based on head to head. Auburn almost HAS to go undefeated to get there or hope for another Alabama loss.

See what I mean?!?


boise plays the weakest schedule of all the unbeatens

mizzu and ok-state are unbeaten...but unlike the higher ranked bcs teams they havent played the meat of their schedule




i would love bama to run the table and get in as a 1 loss SEC champion

i think the bcs computers would put a 1 loss SEC champ in ahead of Boise...but until the games are played and the numbers crunched...we will see



it is a shame that bama plays the 2nd hardest schedule and gets docked bc they dont win every game 45-0

Boise would have 2 losses every year at LEAST if they played an SEC schedule

Bama would go undefeated every year in Boise's conference




anyway...good TD


You didn't argue much of anything that I said in regard to your list?

I never once said that Alabama wasn't a superior team to Boise State and I doubt many would argue that given Boise State's schedule, Alabama would likely run the table. With their schedule, should they win out and win the SEC Championship (especially if this provides a second chance at SC) they will be sitting pretty to get back into NC contention should the right undefeated teams lose.

Who argued that Boise State didn't have the easiest schedule of the remaining teams? Even so, that doesn't mean there any less susceptible to having a bad game than any of the others you are so sure will do the so.

Alabama didn't get docked for having the hardest schedule, they were docked for losing to a South Carolina team that previously lost to Auburn. To the contrary, it is their schedule that gives them a chance at redeeming themselves in the BCS point system which is quite the reverse of Boise State that will be penalized for their schedule regardless of whether or not the go unbeaten.

Why did you stop debating your topic?

Make an actual argument as to why they should even be considered for a BCS game.

No teams on their schedule are ranked now.

If they want to be in the title hunt, they should join the Big 12 and play Texas and Oklahoma every year.

Playing the wheel chaired school of the bling for women should not get them into a BCS Bowl much less the national championship game.

October 17, 2010  05:36 PM ET

I disagree with 1.5 of them.

October 17, 2010  05:39 PM ET

Oklahoma will not be in the BCS National Championship Game. Their first loss is coming next weekend to the eventual 2010 Big 12 Champions, the Missouri Tigers.

Either Oregon or Boise State is going to be #1 in the BCS polls. If Boise wins out, they will do nothing to lose that ranking.

Therefore, they deserve to be in the BCS game.

It's just that easy.

Aren't you a Sooner fan?

All I can say is that Boise State gets a bid for the National title game and they win. I cant image the chaos that would bring.

They do not deserve that ranking, it's that simple.

They have not played and will not play a good team all season until bowl time.

Yes I am. However, I am a realistic, unbiased Sooner fan. I just think Mizzou's defense is good enough to contain Oklahoma's offense, and their QB and receivers are going to have a heyday with that Sooners secondary.

Maybe if some bigger name schools werent afraid to start their year with Boise on their schedule they would have played some better teams.

I hope you are right.

Get an SEC team one step closer.

Nebraska and Ohio State losing this week helped the cause.

Except Boise didn't even get back to Bama when Bama proposed a two game home and away series.

Obviously, I hope I'm wrong, but Mizzou looks damn good. In fact, I'm not so sure the Tigers will lose a game this season.

Either way it looks as if Boise is gonna get its shot at the National title. Either way they are gonna be 1 or 2, and with the rest of the schedule they arent gonna lose that ranking.

They only team I could think of jumping Boise at the last minute is Auburn. If Auburn beats LSU and then Bama and win the SEC, I dont see how you can let them not play in the BCS title game.

Because any one loss team from a BCS conference played a much tougher schedule.

Boise plays 0 ranked teams.

A one loss SEC team plays 5.

Shouldn't even be an issue.

Current projected BCS rankings already have Boise State down to #3 after being #1 last week. If just 2 BCS teams keep winning, the Broncos won't get a shot.
