Odds are we are still playing for a championship



the odds of 2/3 of those teams losing is very very good. It always happens, not to mention there are a ton of ranked opponents including great programs such as Southern Cal and Texas. The odds of 2/3 of those teams going undefeated is less than them actually losing. At this point, 58% chance we are in miami.

re: Odds are we are still playing for a championship


i think really they are better than that. Oregon playing 3 top 25 teams and ND aint beating USC and kstate could lose to either baylor or Texas. wouldnt surprise me in the least if they all three lost

don't see oregon losing at all.

ND will lose to USC though and KSU maybe might lose to Texas.

re: Odds are we are still playing for a championship


Honestly, i'm more worried about us beating georgia than anyone ahead losing. The guys in crimson have no control over oregon/kstate/ND

Our bed has been made, if we're forced to lie in it SEC champion isn't bad

I see Oregon losing to USC more likely than Notre Dame. What happens when Oregon doesn't score 60+ points? If USC can score, they win


Its just that ND isn't really that good. They should have lost to a terrible Pitt team and they should have lost to Stanford. Both at home. They have barely beaten a bunch of scrub type teams. Their offense just isn't good. ND has only scored over 21 points 4 times this season and 1 of those was after a 3OT game and another was against Navy. If USC can put up about 21 points....they will win. I like those chances

50% chance for each team losing. Since we need 2 of the 3 to lose, that would put our odds at 25%. Pretty good considering


We still have to beat Georgia too. The way we've played the past two weeks I wouldn't put that much more than 50/50.

No doubt gonna need some help. Hope the players get their heads right and play loose and with a vengeance now. They still have a SEC Championship to win, at the very least, and possibly more.

It is when you don't win the National Title. We should never accept anything less than a national title and we shouldn't let our players think it is acceptable.

Let's beat Auburn and Georgia first. Hell, Murray might light us up for 400 if they watch the same film I saw over the past two weekends.

Exactly. I was sick all last week, broke up with girlfriend, and so I was all doped up and I was pretty irritated Saturday night but now I'm pretty much just IDGF. Whatever happens happens

No.


For God's sakes people, Mett played how he was supposed to all season long. The game was in Death Valley, and his WRs made amazing catches.

As for aTm JFF's ability to scramble affected us. After watching the game again the plays JFF made while in the pocket we mush rushed instead of pass rushed. That is good with a scrambling QB like that, but we didn't mush rush a lot of the time and we payed for it, but when we did JFF had a LOT of time to throw behind two first round OTs.

No. Hell fricking no. It's the expectation for them. If they can't live up to it they failed and if they CAN'T live up to it they shouldn't have come here. I'll still be proud that they beat Aubie and won the SEC, but it'll still be a failure of a season.

Oregon also stands a chance to losing to Oregon St.which IMO is a trap game for Oregon.

Stanford is a physical team for a Pac12 team and after Oregon wins or loses that game and it will be tough to play on the road against an Oregon St. team that their only loses are 20-17 @Washington and 27-23 @Stanford.

Then if Oregon gets past those two games with wins they have to play USC again.

IMO 2 of the 3 of the undefeated teams will lose, "bet the single wide trailer on it."

I don't see K State losing. Oregon has toughest schedule of top 3. They've got to get past Stanford, Oregon State and if USC beats UCLA this weekend then Oregon will have to play them so they'd have to get by 3 top 20 teams back to back to back. An upset seems more likely than not. The real question is will ND slip up to USC.

All Bama fans should be HUGE USC fans right now.
