If Auburn and Ohio state win out at the point who gets the nod? It's hard to tell because of the gravity of beating Alabama and Ohio state's perceived 'cupcake' schedule. Thoughts?

Auburn deserves to go, but Ohio State undoubtedly would.

I don't think there's much chance of ANY one loss team going to a championship game over an undefeated team from a major conference. Mich St. Looks legit though.

Thats what needs to happen. We won't jump an undefeated OSU team imo. It is what it is.

Beating bama would help us in the polls as some people believe if a top 5 team beats #1 they deserve to be #1.  We should also be #1 in the computers.

Would improvement in the polls plus tops in the computer polls be enough?

The computers won't. The human polls will.

I think our chance of jumping an undefeated team was lost with our 20 point lead against UGA.  I felt going into these last two games, we needed a 3 score win over UGA, a double digit win against UAT, and a convincing win against a top ten team from the east.  Now, we just need some pieces to fall into place. Right now, it looks like there is just one more piece, so go Wolverines and Sparty!

Our bigger problem is the Coaches and Harris Polls still have us behind Clemson.  What gets us ahead of Clemson in the BCS poll are the computers.  We would never jump Ohio State in the BCS if we are two spots behind it in the human poll components of the BCS.

I thought over time the Coaches and Harris pollsters would want their poll to provide a consensus with the AP and BCS polls, and that has happened a little bit, but less than I expected.

We need to not worry about the rest, and focus on our own schedule.  Beat Bama.  Win the SECCG.  If we make it to Pasadena, great.  If not, it was not meant to be.

I think it's reasonably fair to assume that OSU would lose to either LSU or A&M and would get destroyed by Alabama.

Their struggles against Northwestern and Wisky are pretty eye opening. Put them in the meat grinder of a week in and week out SEC schedule - and it'd yield losses.

I personally would put Auburn in but I'm biased. But if Ohio St is undefeated they go hands down no question about it. If we were talking about Louisville rather than OS then there would be a debate.

My daughter has met the most amazing guy. He's in the doctorate program in chemical engineering at Auburn. They're going to get married most likely. One minor issue, his undergrad was at Ohio State. I keep trying to imagine how she would handle it if we played OSU and how HE would handle her CRAZY love for Auburn football. If we jump them in the polls or if they beat us out, it will be a pretty good test of how solid their relationship is! Haha!

If OSU wins out, we do not deserve to jump them.  That would be a bigger screw over by a good bit than 2004 for us.  We need Michigan State to beat OSU...which is possible.  

I wonder more how voters will treat FSU if evidence quickly emerges that truly makes Winston seem guilty.  It may have a disqualifying effect to some voters.
