again the speculation here is almost comical! for one thing i like history and history establishes patterns. the so called mighty GATORS have never i said NEVER HAD A undeafeated season. this year will be no different with 1 possibly 2 losses coming to the gators. i like the fact that no one is giving my vols a snowball chance in hell to win this weekend, we would love to knock them from their mighty perch and restore some dignity back to UT football. ITS SURELY POSSIBLE just ask ole miss and auburn and lsu that have all done it the last three years. i also think that usc will stumble as well as will texas. its just so hard to go undefeated and if you do then thier is no guarantee you will paly for the national tilte. just ask auburn that went 13-0 and still got shut out by the bsc. that just isnt right!!!!!!!! but the gators lose a game both year and still get to play for the national title. that isnt right either. WE NEED A PLAY OFF SYSTEM!!!

UNBELIEVABLE!!! The absolute ARROGANCE of you SoCal people is surprisingly still amazing! After 2 weeks, you think the road to the National Championship is suddenly clear, because you happened to squeak out a 3-point victory against a truly mediocre OSU team? I think, as you said, the last 3 years have proven that you can almost count on the Trojanettes to lose to some pathetic pansy Pac-10 team! How about we wait 'til the Girls from Troy beat someone from this joke of a conference before stating such asinine comments!

The Gators don't deserve a ranking until they actually decide to play someone, instead of doling out weekend $ gifts to unranked punching bag opponents. Really though, it's high time we stop arbitrarily placing teams in rankings, then ending the year with the B*S farce. Fans, let's get the best teams together at the end of the year to actually play for a championship... join up the movement at

I'd love to see a rematch of USC vs Texas in the Rose Bowl, but it ain't gonna happen. Texas will drop off the map in a month. Mark my words...

Too soon to say. But it looks better for us. I want us to take The Quizz Show off the air.

I'm against a playoff system because I'm from Dixie where we have the SEC pretty much owning the BCS system. Win the SEC and sashay right into the title game. It doesn't matter how many losses happened during the regular season.
