Does anyone have faith in Georgia becoming the second SEC team in a row to beat Ohio State in the BCS Title game?

Oklahoma about to win.

The championship game will be LSU-Ohio State. I guarantee that LSU and Va. Tech will jump over Georgia. Maybe Oklahoma too.

SEC chiefs know that LSU in New Orleans would be one tough team to beat. They'll make sure that the conference will get a greater chance of winning another title.

I don't see how a team can potentially win the National Title and not even win their win conference.

Tennessee beat Georgia by 21 points. There's no justifiable way that Georgia gets in over LSU. The polls will show it tomorrow.

Yes, that's why there should be a playoff system, IMO. Then, USC and LSU would be prevalent, which I believe to be the two best teams. Hopefully someone can jump ahead of Georgia, but probably not. Who knows, maybe Georgia wins. I hope they end up like Florida of last year.

I don't see how anyone on the planet can deny college football's need for some sort of playoff after this year. Unless you have a year like 2005 when UT and USC both stood head and shoulders over the competition, it's impossible to pick out the best two teams.

Playoff system would be great, but the only thing I don't like is it would bore the hell out of me watching a football playoff for 3-4 weeks in a row.

the way the guy explained it yesterday on the radio.. (i may ramble a bit so be patient) is georgia did not play today, the computers are locked on them, this was implemented last year after a team a couple years ago lost a couple places in the standings after their last game.
so they implemented a rule that locks a teams previous rankings after their final game to stop any adjustments from happening or as the guy on the radio said to stop the chance that any tom foolery could take place...

now it can be adjusted by strength of schedule still, so the question will be will the voters and computers decide if LSU's victory today was so impressive that it warrants that big a jump... in essence if the win is big enough to say tennesse is a quality win for LSU, then georgia's loss to them is a loss to a quality team and it won't be as big a loss as say to an unranked team

IF Georgia gets in over LSU, LSU vs Hawaii should be the MNC game.

Fuuuck Ohio State and Georgia. Georgia has no argument to be over LSU. Period.

LSU vs OSU would be the rightful title game.
