How the Sooners get to the title game

Posted on: November 10, 2008 2:04 pm
OK, here we have essentially a 3 (yes three) horse race to the BCS title game - Bama and Florida from the S'more Ecstacy Conference, and the BIG 12 South. OK it's a 5 horse race (OU, UT, TTech). Here's how it falls at the moment 1. Bama 2. Texas Tech 3. Texas 4. Florida 5. Oklahoma UT plays a very down Arkansas team coming off a good stretch, but handily takes them out. OK let's fast forward to the SEC and get them out of the way. So Bama and Florida need to play in the SEC title game that was locked in this Saturday, and that takes one out. Let's say Florida wins in a close one, OT for instance. They rocket to the top, but take a hit in the polls just a tad for not being quite so dominant as we thought. Tech plays @ Oklahoma next Saturday, of course the Sooners win (this is MY scenario). Texas beats the Kansas Jayhawks in a close one. That moves both the computers and human polls to Oklahoma's favor, and also creates a 3 way tie in the South. Here we are 1. Florida 2. Texas 3. Oklahoma 4. Bama (out) 5. Texas Tech (out) OK, now OU plays at Oklahoma State, and clobbers them. No letting off the gas here Bob, we need style points. Meanwhile UT takes on aTm who generally is beaten by Oklahoma teams by about 28, so figures for Texas too. This does diddly squat for the longhorns, who have lost their spotlight, especially after the voters have seen a&m get killed on many occasions this year. Winning on the road against a top 10 team gives the Sooners just the boost needed to leap the 'horns in the BCS. The BCS is naturally the Big 12's chosen tiebreaker for this 3-way, and Oklahoma would prevail and go on to face Mizzou in the CCG. 1. Florida (lock) 2. Oklahoma 3. Texas Oklahoma defeated Missouri twice last year, and does so again in a similar fashion to the other teams that have done so this year. Therefore OU comes out number two, and plays the Gators in the title game. See you at the big one, Tebow! OK, so what if the BCS is gay and doesn't give the Sooners the nod? All we need is for this aching Texas crew to drop the CCG to a revitalized Missouri and we're in! BOOMER SOONER

How the Sooners get to the title game

    The only thing that could prevent our Sooners from the NCG is a loss in Stillwater. Texas Tech is going down. No doubt in my mind. OSU is another story.
