    Absolutely the QB's coming out this year are going to be amazing. Also you may have Tebow coming out, but I doubt he will since all the Big 12 guys and Mark Sanchez from USC.

    In my mind even with all the things that could go wrong It will be an SEC-BIG 12 title game. I really think that it has to be that way or something monumental would have happened. The Ohio State debacle the last couple of years really hurt the big 10's chances of getting back to the title game. Also with the big 12 dropping 50+ points almost every time you see them on national tv it's going to be hard to keep them out of the game.

    Florida right now is the best team in the nation. They have the big 12 offense fire power with a top SEC defense. I would really be surprised if they lose to Bama. I know one thing, it's going to be a crazy finish especially with Oak playing TT. Man it's been a wild year.

    BCS selection procedures - "No more than two teams from a conference may be selected, regardless of whether they are automatic qualifiers or at-large selections."

    I guess that means the the "Fred's Hardware and Bait Shop Bowl" in Y-City Arkansas will have Florida and Oklahoma, while Cincinnati will play Boise State (or something equally exciting) in the Orange Bowl...go figger???

    Tebow won't come out.

    He'd be an idiot to do so. Mainly because he's heard that he's not an ideal NFL QB. He needs to keep working on his pocket passing.

    He's an amazing scrambler, and can truck people over. But you don't see that in the NFL, and those who were hot in college, didn't in the NFL.. See Micheal Vick...

    Most teams won't be going after Tebow in the draft as hard as the public might think..

    People like Bradford, Harrell, Stafford, McCoy... Those guys are the hot list of QB's to be taken.

    Penn St took care of the "what if" problem. Now they have no reason to be in the NC talks.

    If TT wins out, and wins the Big12, they are a lock.

    If Florida wins out going to the SECCG, and Bama doesn't lose anything until that game.. The winner of that game, should go.

    The only problem I see with that is.. Voters and Polls might be against Florida. If Alabama retains the #1 rank, and ONLY loses the SECCG, they could argue that Florida, a 1 loss to Ole Miss, and a lower rank, doesn't deserve the jump up. Because ultimately, it's a matter of who falls 1 and 2 in the end.

    USC has no chance. I don't care what ANYONE says. The Big 10 and the Pac 10 are locked out of any NC game this year, barring any self blow up disaster in the Big 12 and SEC.


    SEC vs Big 12 National Championship game.. Put the money on it.

    Ultimately I see Florida vs Texas Tech.

    But I wouldn't be surprised to see Alabama replacing Florida...

    If bama loses the SECCG which they are in no matter what happens against Auburn they are out of the NC. Florida would jump to 1 or 2. The voters will not leave Alabama ahead of Florida if FL beats them, you can count on that.

    I really see Florida beating BAMA and OU beating TT.

    So I see the championship being Florida and the Big 12 CG winner if it comes from the South. If the BIG 12 CG winner comes from the north, then USC is in the title game no matter what anyone thinks. It's a lock.

    I don't think the same kind of comeback is in line for Colorado.

    I hate Nebraska, but did hear a local DJ on a Nebraska station make a good comment yesterday. "There is legislation waiting approval to have Nebraska and Colorado merged as a single state. That way Nebraska would have mountains and Colorado would have a football team."

    The last post in this resurrected thread was from PAJayhawk to me with the announcement of Snyder's return to K-State. Steve resurrected the thread a day after Snyder and the K-State football team ran the table on Texas teams this year. KSU beat Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU, and now A&M this year. Thought maybe he would hang it up this year. Rumors are he will hang on for one more.

    Looks like we've got a shootout on our hands in the Rose Bowl.
