Let's throw some train wreck scenarios out the for the BCS:
Scenario 1 -- Alabama wins out, but Oklahoma beats Texas Tech and then wins the Big 12. Who plays Alabama for the national title? You have to assume Tech is out because they lost late, so the choice is Oklahoma or Texas. Texas won the head-to-head, but will Oklahoma be able to vault the Longhorns based on winning the Big 12?
Scenario 2 -- Texas Tech wins out and they are in the national title game. Florida loses, but comes back to beat Alabama in the SEC title game. Who do the Red Raiders play? Texas in a rematch game? Do the pollsters jump USC up so we don't have a Big 12 vs. Big 12 title game?
Scenario 3 -- Texas Tech beats Oklahoma, but loses in the Big 12 title game, so it has one loss. Florida loses to South Carolina, then comes back to beat Alabama. Who is in? Texas with one loss, the team that lost to Texas Tech? USC?
Scenario 4 -- Florida loses to Florida State, but then comes back and beats Alabama in the SEC title game. Both teams are out. Oklahoma beats Texas Tech. Who plays for the national title? Oklahoma vs. Texas? Oklahoma vs. USC? Texas vs. USC? Let's even throw in that Oregon State won the Pac-10, but USC still only has one loss -- does that change your mind?
Scenario 5 -- Florida loses to FSU, comes back and beats Alabama in the SEC title. Oklahoma beats Texas Tech, but then loses to Missouri in the Big 12 title game. Texas wins out. USC stumbles (take your choice -- UCLA/Stanford/ND). Utah is undefeated. Penn State has one loss. Who you got? Texas, who didn't win its division vs. Utah? Does Penn State jump back up? What about an undefeated Boise State?
Scenario 6 -- Florida loses to FSU, comes back and beats Alabama in the SEC title. Oklahoma beats Texas Tech, but the Sooners lose the Big 12 title game. Texas loses at Kansas. USC loses to Stanford. Penn State loses to Michigan State. Utah and Boise State are both undefeated. Who plays? What if Utah and Boise State both lose? Could we actually have a SEC runner up in Alabama with one loss vs. some random team? Ball State, stand by.
I'd love to hear what you guys think. Any chance we can get to see the BCS explode is always a good thing.
