College Football Doomsday Scenariae

1. Southeastern Conference

The SEC East has Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee all with 2 losses (1-1 against each other) and relatively easy conference opponents left. If all three win out in the conference, the tie will end up having to be decided by a meeting of the ADs of the schools not affected by the tie, ie all except Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, and the eventual SEC West winner. The SEC already has the motto, "If yew ain't cheatin', yew ain't tryin'." The SEC East winner is the one with the best bribes.

2. How many one-loss teams can you fit in a VW Beetle?

Currently there are 6 one-loss BCS teams: Southern California, Florida State, Ohio State, Miami FL, Virginia Tech, and LSU. None of them play each other the rest of the season. If that number isn't down to one by December 7, someone or several someones will be whining about being left out; the whining increasing exponentially with the number of teams left out.

A variant on this scenario requires Oklahoma to lose once between now and December 7, potentially having 7 one-loss teams fighting for two spots.

3. and if they all lose again?

With six upsets, the landscape could look an awful lot like 2001, when Florida was upset and eliminated in the SEC championship by LSU and the Oklahoma-Nebraska rematch become Colorado-Texas for the Big XII championship, which Texas lost and was thus eliminated and allowed Nebraska to skulk their way into Custeresque beating by Miami.

This scenario lets every two-loss BCS team and one-loss non-BCS team now join the whining chorus, potentially 22 teams begging for the chance to be Bourbon Street roadkill on the wheels of the Sooner Schooner. This scenario is the wet dream of TCU, because it guarantees them a BCS bowl if they are undefeated.

This one also has a Sooner variant, this time where the Sooners lose once in the regular season, then lose in the Big XII Championship. We would then have 23 teams (one fifth of I-A) crying over 2 spots.

If you hate the BCS, root for scenario #3. The resultant litigation will be fatal to them.

How about this.

OU remains undefeated and everyone else has two losses. OU loses to Michigan (submit 2 loss team here). They have one loss to Michigan 2....who is the national champs?

If it is an actual #1 vs. #2 game where the winner is declared the champion, then Michigan. If the polls are still of any importance whatsoever, Oklahoma.

I'm still hoping Oklahoma loses and TCU goes undefeated so that everything can still go to hell.

Big deal if TCU goes undefeated. They played a crap schedule. They scheduled no one in their nonconference and therefore they are regulated to some crap bowl. They barely beat Navy for crying out loud..

TCU is 9th in the BCS. If they win out they would definitely be in the top 6-7 and deserve a BCS berth.

If that happens and they don't get a BCS bowl, there should be a lawsuit.

the SEC 3-way sounds like fun, but Georgia (better record/higher ranking) will get the nod.

SHIT!!!! The SEC Doomsday Scenario just bit the dust.

http://www.sportsline.com/collegefootball/story/6813393

ATLANTA -- Avoiding the potential for an embarrassing vote, the Southeastern Conference hastily adopted a new tiebreaking formula that could use the BCS standings to determine who plays in the league championship game.

SEC athletic directors held a conference call Friday, unanimously adopting the new rule so they wouldn't be put in the position of voting on which SEC East team plays in the Dec. 6 championship in Atlanta.

In the event of a three-way tie between Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, the highest team in the Bowl Championship Series standings would represent the East, with one caveat. If the top two teams are within five places of each other in the BCS, the head-to-head winner would go to the title game.

I doubt very much TCU can jump up enough to get into top 6. If they do good for them and they will get blow out by 21 against whoever they play in the bowl game.
