While suffering through a poor Detroit Lions performance (yeah, I was rooting for the upset... want GB out of teh playoff hunt :) ), i got to thinking about something that a coworker told me today (considering Alabama/Auburn were playing today).
If Alabama wins against Auburn and faces Florida in the SEC-Championship team.
Texas loses to a&M...
TCU wins out...
Alabama beats Florida in the SEC championship game....
A coworker of mine heard a report saying that a 1-loss Florida SEC team would still end up with a better point standings in the BCS than TCU does, and by their own guildelines, the BCS would be obligated for a rematch with Alabama/Florida... or so he claims? Or am i missing something?
T? Didn't we just see this game? And what happens if Florida were to win the matchup?
Alabama: We beat you in the SEC-Title! We're the best!
Florida; We beat you in the Bowl Championship Game! We're no 1
What then? A rubber match? Or was my friend misinformed about the standing of Florida? If not, can the BCS simply turn down a higher pointed team? (that opens up another kettle of fish...)
