Lets say they have a 3 point loss to.LSU, Lsu finishes with two losses. Bama wins the SEC. Will they get in over,,, undefeated KState or Oregon?? MNCG has had an SEC team every year since 07, had two last year. Tough to see the title game without a SEC team.
yeah most likely. sec bias and all
in all seriousness bama would still get in. that team is just better than everyone else and will get some leeway in voters minds

Nope, would need KSU and/or Oregon to lose.
hell no. and this question is ridiculous.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
oregon and kstate would play for the title
they would need another team to lose. They wouldn't have gotten in last year if Okst didn't crap the bed.

I don't think so and don't think they should if they lost. They're not going to lose though.
If they lose, they shouldn't get to play for the NC. Even if they are still the best team in the country (which they are, and still would be). When you look at it, their schedule is actually pretty weak for an SEC schedule. It really shouldn't be place above that of Oregon or KSU.
We would need two of those teams to lose for us to have a chance. We would need to make a statement against the SECe winner in order for us to have a chance to jump.
Only if there is less than 2 undefeated teams left, and even then, Bama's SOS will be weaker than teams KSU (possibly ND). Bama would have to lose a close one to LSU, LSU would have to lose again, and then Bama would have to play a 1-loss team from the East with Florida likely being the strongest opponent from a computer perspective.
^^^this^^^ 1 loss team will not play over undefeated Oregon, K-State, or ND.
That's putting it nicely Bama has a weak schedule, period. They get the same BS next year when they miss UF, UGA, and South Carolina again..
No one was giving us any crap when 6 teams had a BYE week before they played us. It goes both ways.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Possibly, but I think an undefeated Kansas St. is in if they win out.
With a 3 point loss at LSU several things would have to happen.
1. The PAC-12 & Big 12 would need to start picking each other off such that Oregon & Kansas St.'s good wins are over three and four loss teams;
2. Oregon would need to play poorly/barely beat USC, Stanford & Oregon St.;
3. Kansas St. would need to do the same in their remaining games;
4. Alabama would need to put epic beat downs on Texas A&M, Western Carolina, Auburn & the SEC East Champ*.
5. Alabama would need to be the victim of several bad calls, one of which the media agrees cost them a chance to win.
*It would probably benefit Alabama if Georgia somehow lost to Ole Miss or Auburn, but have Florida destroy FSU and then have Alabama blast Florida in the SEC Championship game.
Keep in mind that Oregon hasn't played a top 15 team yet and they likely will not get a chance to play one until they get to a bowl game.
Kansas St. has beaten #6 & #13 on the road and #14 at home. They'll get #24 on Saturday and may get a ranked Texas at the end of the year. Going to be hard to keep that resume out.
So far, it's been ridiculously weak for sure. But they do play LSU, A&M, and a CCG in the coming weeks. Makes for a respectable schedule, but not an "SEC caliber" one.
Cry me a river why don't you. At seasons end, it's possible that Bama could have more wins over ranked teams than ND.
2009, 2011, 2012 Champs
LULZ, Bama plays LSU and aTm the next two weeks. Then will play another top 10 team in the SECCG. Will play the same number of top 30 teams as ND according to the Sargarin rankings.
Nice try, play again.
Quit making stupid threads.

He conviently left out that we played FL the last 4 years and won 3 of those games. Also, if the SEC hadn't expanded we would only have played GA this season and next. Neither FL nor SC would be on the schedule.
Weak? Maybe you haven't noticed that Bama is 3rd in the computers and is not far behind ND and KSU in the composite. Bama has #5 and #16 in the BCS upcoming and then another game against a #10 BCS team if they make it to the SECCG. That will quickly make up the gap as ND plays 3 cupcakes plus USC who will have 3-4 losses this year...unless ND loses to them. KSU may stay ahead of Bama, but they don't have a CCG, so it's likely that Bama ends up #1 in the computers if undefeated. If that schedule is considered weak, then EVERYONE's schedule is weak.
They could play every school in the top 10 and would still go undefeated.
TAMU is top 20 in the computers. If you don't consider them to be a decent game, then there really aren't many decent teams out there at all, are there? Btw, LaTech only has 1 loss (to TAMU), is ranked, and is #2 nationally in total and scoring offense. Ole Miss is 5-3 and isn't that bad - pretty good road win for TAMU. TAMU's 2 losses were to top 10 teams, but they were held in check offensively, so how exactly has TAMU exposed the SEC as being overrated?
currently bama has played the #26 ranked sos. Obviously an undefeated bama is in no matter what. a 1 loss bama has a 0.0% chance of jumping an undefeated oregon or k state.
just stop. it would be impossible for a 1 loss bama team to jump an either undefeated oregon or k state team
Last year, I would have said it was impossible for a team that could not win its own division, much less conference, to go to the MNC.
But hey, if we fill up the top 10 with SEC frauds, then they can beat one another all day and never drop out of the top 10.
