I like the match-ups. Of course, if we go undefeated, it will wreck this.

How about UL vs UCF? That would be ugly. Rutgers/Clemson would be a good game. Still too early to worry about exact matchups though.

Grothe>Tebow question may get answered. I do find it odd that a 4-2 team is projected for a BCS game when they don't have 1 quality win yet, and they will have at least 3 losses by that time assuming they lose the SEC championship to LSU (who is still projected for NCG).

Is the sugar bowl more presitgious than the Orange Bowl? As a fan, does it matter to me which bowl we get?

IMO it is NCG or no BCS game for us.  If we go undefeated we WILL be in the NCG, but if we have a loss at the end of the season we are out of any BCS possiblities.  We don't get enough love from the coaches to make it to a BCS game if we don't win out.

We are pretty well set to get one loss and still win the conference. I don't know that anyone else can beat WVU and if it comes down to head-to-head, we will be the conference champs. Remember, we are in an Automatic Bid League.

Okay... I may be reaching a bit... was thinking Florida could win out and not be in the SEC Championship game -- so no risk to losing to LSU...

I am certainly no expert -- and anyone who predicts bowl games this far out is basically just guessing, anyway...

The more important part is to know who is and will be eligible...

I gotcha, that could definately happen, they could make it with 3 losses too, the voters love the gators. We beat Auburn and they are horrible, they beat the Gators, and if they hadn't stumbled to some really good teams, they would be crownded national champs right then and there.

I would love a crack at them. No one can hang with us if our offense plays the rest of the season like Saturday.

What makes you so sure the Fiesta Bowl wouldn't take a top ten USF -- or West Virginia, for that matter -- over Hawaii? The Fiesta picks next-to-last in the regular rotation and might just leave Hawaii to the Sugar Bowl, which picks last.

Assuming Hawaii even goes unbeaten. Did anyway watch them play San Jose State? Barf.
