Posted on 11/18/2012 7:35:21 AM PST by MinorityRepublican
Coming into Saturday, Oregon and Kansas State had the inside track to college footballs national championship and the Southeastern Conferences run of six straight BCS titles was in jeopardy.
Then No. 2 K-State got thumped 52-24 by unranked Baylor and top-ranked Oregon fell in overtime to No. 14 Stanford, 17-14.
Now the SEC is alive and well.
And hows this for a possible national title game: Alabama vs. Notre Dame.

Bama will stomp Notre Dame!
They will beat them like a drum.
It is amazing how the BCS ‘ship’ righted itself! Yesterday the SEC held positions 4,5,6,7 (AL, GA, FLA, LSU) and no real shot at the national title. Kansas state gets thumped and Oregon stumbles (actually Standford just played better) and now we can get back to reality. SEC is the best conference and should have a shot at the national title. Here is hoping that USC shows it’s true colors and gets stomped by Notre Dame and Alabama uses Alburn as a needed tune up before meeting GA. May the best SEC team meet ND in Miami!
Some say ND is not as strong as hyped. I reply with the fact that they beat Stanford in OT! That is no small feat judging by the way Stanford shut down Oregon yesterday. If Alabama plays ND for the championship, it will be a game worth watching. And Bama may not be able to field the entire 'A' team after an epic battle with Georgia for the SEC braggin' rights. The consolation regardless, for a man who bleeds Crimson and White, is that Les Miles can now sit down and shut up. Let's hope Saban does a better job of play selection if he gets a shot at ND.
Georgia-Alabama should be a fun game provided both win this week.
Notre Dame loses to USC.
Florida beats Florida State.
Alabama beats Auburn.
Georgia Tech beats Georgia.
Alabama beats Georgia in the SEC title game.
Would that make it an all-SEC Alabama-Florida title game?
Sounds like you are partial to them boys from Gainesville!
I would love an Alabama v. ND title, so ND could lose 56-3, and suffer the humiliation they deserve. I absolutely despise Notre Dame since they embraced Obama and the abortion vampires, and their scumbag president pressed charges against the pro-life protesters. I wish every alumni withheld every penny until that bastard cries uncle.
Four of the top 5 are SEC! Any doubters on which conference is the best?
SEC repeats as National Champion.
Won’t happen. As with many institutions people understand the current stewards of it don’t represent the institution they came to know and love. Like say, the United States for instance.
Go Dawgs! Sic ‘em! WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!
Georgia beats Bama this time.
Hoping ND loses to USC.
I still remember Lou Holtz calling a fake punt against Boston College in the 90’s when they were leading something like 49-0. The next year Notre Dame was undefeated and heading for a national championship when BC beat them. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Tom Coughlin was the BC coach by the way. Do you think Tom got them motivated?
Alabama might have a great time, but their coach is a sorry excuse for a human being. I would NEVER allow my son to play for a “man” like that.
How ‘bout the Baylor Bears! By beating Kansas State they put Alabama or Georgia back into the National Championship hunt. At the same time took a QB from their own conference out of the Heisman chase. PLUS, they put A&M’s “Johnny Football”, Baylor’s old rival, in the driver’s seat for the Heisman.
And of course they helped themselves. Win one more and they’re bowl eligible.
ND probably does not deserve to go.
“SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame knew what was coming. Stanford doesn’t get cute inches from the goal line.
And after three years of getting pushed around by the Cardinal, the Fighting Irish pushed back, winning the most important shoving match they’ve had all season.
Or did they?
A wall of Notre Dame defenders stopped Stepfan Taylor inches from the goal line on fourth down in overtime and the seventh-ranked Irish remained unbeaten with a 20-13 victory against the No. 17 Cardinal on a soggy Saturday in South Bend.
Taylor kept reaching and turning with bodies underneath him, and his knee never did hit the ground before reaching the ball across the goal line. But the officials ruled it was too late. The whistle had blown, and that meant the play was stopped.
Taylor finished with 102 yards on 28 carries. He needed 103. “
