That the loser of the SEC championship game will most likely head to the Outback Bowl. Going from a chance to play for a Crystal Football to playing Northwestern in the Outback Bowl is quite the fall from grace, so to speak. Just one more reason that I want to win Saturday. Here is what I think the bowl situation pans out to be for the top SEC teams:
MNC: Bama/UGA vs ND
Sugar: UF vs Kent St. (not sure which is worse: making a BCS game and having to play Kent St or losing the SECCG and having to play NW...)
Capitol 1: USCe vs Michigan
Cotton: TAMU vs Oklahoma
Outback: Bama/UGA vs Northwestern
Chik-fil-A: LSU vs Clemson
Am I way off base here? What do ya'll think the bowl picture pans out to be for the top 6 SEC schools?
I think you could be correct unfortunately.
Do you think that the Capital One Bowl might pass on USC due to their injuries?
It's all speculation right now.
But the majority of the major reporting sites have the loser of the SECCG right now in the Capital One. Even if Bama somehow manages to pull the upset and beat us.
TAMU is typicall pegged for Cotton
USCe is pegged for Outback
Florida is pegged for Sugar.
I've seen pretty much a consensus on many major sites that this will be the case.
If Kent State gets a BCS bid, Oklahoma is likely getting left out.
Those bowl matchups are total Garbage..
Matchups need to look like this
Bama/UGA vs ND
Bama/UGA vs Kansas St
USCe vs USC
Bowl matchups have become very lack luster the past few years.
Hence, Oklahoma to the Cotton Bowl...
Rose - Stanford vs Nebraska
Fiesta - Kansas St vs Oregon
Sugar - UF vs Louisville
Orange - FSU vs Kent St
(Orange has the last at large selection this year)
My bad, I read that wrong.
Maybe, but USCe did beat us head to head and Bama already played Mich this year. I know that bowls don't like to schedule the same teams in back to back years, but it wouldn't be the first time its happened.
"We just stepped on their face with a hobnailed boot and broke their nose! We just crushed their face!”
This is basically what Saban was saying ... before his statement was twisted around by the media, fans, etc.
