    Ha! USC has lost 3 of their last 4 trips to Corvallis.


    (Not good for the Pac 10's overall national rankings)

    Not that the spotlight on the above statement was ever close to dimming. I think the SEC is stronger now than any time in the last 10 years.

    I also think Georgia is overrated, Alabama is underrated, LSU is surprisingly better than expected, Auburn is still a tough team despite their loss to LSU and Florida is doing better this year than their last two that yielded a national championship and a sophemore Heisman winner, respectively.

    I tuned in to the game at half time and when I saw the score, I scared my dog when I said HOLY SHIT! :-) I take this upset as a cream pie and stuff it in the faces of all the sports commentators who went on all week saying that USC is a lock in the National Championship game. If there was anything learned from last season alone, college and NFL, is that anything can happen on the football field.

    3 letters : LSU. When the smoke clears, it won't be USC or OSU, baby.

    USC is capable of beating any team in the country. But, when it comes time to play teams in their own conference they struggle. With things changing every week they still have a chance at a great season and hopefully the title game icon_biggrin.gif

    Its a shame that the national title game should be the SEC championship game.. We are the power house of the country.. I think the SEC west is our strongest teams this year.. I agree LSU is the team to beat, Bama is strong, and Auburn is no slouch.. I'm scared my VOLS are going to be 3 -7 this year.. I'm so ready for Fulmer to be gone.. ITS past time..

    I was thinking about that scenario yesterday and realized that it could happen. Let's say that the two SEC or any other two conference teams are undefeated and one has to lose in the Conference Championship game to the other. Let's say they had to win in triple or 4OT and only because the other team failed to convert a touchdown for 2 points. Barring other undefeated teams in the rankings, it would highly likely occur that they would play again in the National Championship game and call it the 9th QTR or the 3RD game or something like that.

    That would be so great!
    As far as USC beating anyone.. Almost anyone can beat anyone else in the country. I think if you want to a true measure of your strength.. add some SEC teams to your schedule, that will give you a measure of where your program is.

    Boo-yah! Alabama 41, Georgia 30!

    At halftime, it was Alabama over Georgia 31-0!



    NOV 8th...mark your calendars. Alabama at LSU. The winner of this game will most likely play against either Oklahoma, Texas or Missouri in the National Championship Game.

    So much for Florida. Nice 4th-down run for "Superman."
    Don't bet on the SEC without considering the Big XII.
