Wrong.

Too many 9+ win teams for anyone without 9 wins to go higher than MCB.  If Florida/Georgia don't get a BCS game we are probably looking at a 9 win Texas A&M team in December in Nashvillle

EDIT: Forgot the Gator Bowl.
We'll take the Gator
ut / aggie Cotton bowl would be epic
I'm really hoping UT plays VA Tech. I can't stand the Hokies. I think UT would beat them this year.

Vandy goes to the Liberty bowl or Shreveport. Nobody wants them or their poor following. The bowls want to make money.

my best guess.
Alabama (13-0) BCSNCG
Florida (11-1) BCS At Large (Sugar)
Georgia (11-2) Citrus
LSU (10-2) Cotton
South Carolina (10-2) Hall of Fame
Texas A&M (9-3) Peach
Ole Miss (7-5) Music City
Mississippi State (8-4) Liberty
Tennessee (7-5) Birmingham
Vanderbilt (6-6) Independence


I will recognize title sponsors when they pay ME.
Forgot the Gator

So...
Mississippi State (8-4) Gator
Ole Miss (7-5) Music City
Tennessee (7-5) Liberty
Vanderbilt (6-6) Birmingham
Unfilled: Independence.

If Georgia/Florida don't get a BCS game, everyone moves down one except Ole Miss who stays in the MCB this year (State went last year, Tennessee the year before, Vandy can't sell enough tickets) and State would drop to the Liberty.
LSU would rape Michigan....not even kidding...
Also, A&M/Texas would be the best bowl if it were to happen. Epicness is written all over that.
to all you gator/dog fans, dont count us out of the sugar just yet...

as has already been said by many media outlets, if carolina wins the last stretch of 4 straight to finish 10-2, and florida loses to florida state and georgia loses in title game, then well have a longer stretch of wins going into the post season.  for the sugar, you only have to be within one win of the team ahead of you.  also, the sugar bowl officials have said as much...

outside the sugar, i dont see us falling as far as the gator...

that said, we wont be in the outback because of our poor showing during our last time in tampa...
I dunno mrgamecockfan, can louisiana handle yall two times in one year?

It really would.  I'm afraid it could get nasty fan base wise.  With that said......I want a ticket ;)

Poor following... Vandy had 40k+ at the liberty bowl last year. I think we could equal that at a real bowl... Gator or Peach (assuming 8-4)

wouldn't that put y'all in NO and BR in the same year? wouldn't that put y'all in Louisiana twice in a year's time?
ESPN BCS guru Brad Edwards is calling for Oklahoma vs Texas A&M in the Fiesta Bowl among others. He is also calling for Georgia in the sugar.....so he is predicting Georgia to beat Bama in the SECCG
Don't look now, but the A She She nas a very legit shot at getting 2 BCS bowls this year

IF FSU & Clemson win against UF & SC; it's a done deal...

IF UF beats FSU, they are pretty much assured a BCS invite

things just got very interesting

there are 3 'at large" invites out there & Notre Dame WILL get one of those if they lose only to USC.

NOBODY in the Big 10 will get one

The SEC looks solid on getting 2 teams, even if we are not in the MNG, but it COULD get dicey...

it LOOKS like the PAC 12 will have a 2nd plac e team with 3 losses (unless Stanford or OR State beat Oregon OR UCLA runs the table) - OUT

Big 12 - either Oklahoma or Texas has to run the table, if one of them does - probably IN

ACC, if FSU & Clemson win against their SEC in state rivals - IN

whudda thunk it? Let's just say that it is a VERY good thing for our conference that Louisville got beat and that there is no undefeated "Cinderella" this year...
tOSU is undefeated and Alabama is not. Funny
if UF beats FSU, they will be a BSC team

with 10 teams going, it would be almost impossible for the Gators to miss out with only 1 loss...

ah...now i understand...that said, im sure wed travel very well to ANY bcs invite...

on a side note, georgia isnt beating bama...
Mizzou is going bowling this year.

Alabama in the Cotton would be an insult imo
I just want to go to somewhere other than Nashville and Memphis
I think it'll be hard for UNC to score against SoCal, with the bowl ban and all.

You guys need to win out, and then root for Ole Miss to beat Miss State. If that happens, you might be Atlanta-bound. MSU is your main competition in the bowl pecking order right now.

Here's how I think it'll play out...

BCS NCG - Oregon vs Kansas State
Rose - Notre Dame vs Nebraska
Fiesta - LSU vs Oklahoma
Sugar - Alabama vs Clemson
Orange - Florida State vs Louisville

Capital One - Georgia vs Michigan
Cotton - Texas A&M vs Texas
Outback - Florida vs Wisconsin
Gator - South Carolina vs Northwestern
Chick-Fil-A - Mississippi State vs Virginia Tech
Music City - Vanderbilt vs Georgia Tech
Liberty - Missouri vs Tulsa

No bowls for Kentucky, Auburn, Arkansas, Tennessee and POTENTIALLY Ole Miss...Rebels need a win and their last two games are LSU and MSU...Possible but difficult.
Independence - Ole Miss (? - they need one more win and it's not certain vs LSU and MSU...)
