Bama and FSU are the two best teams in NCAA football


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 12:36 PM
 

but Bama cannot play in the game or else it would be perceived that the regular season (particularly November) games are meaningless.


...and besides, Bama doesn't want ANY of FSU!***

etc. and the national champion is someone else. Wild cards have won the World Series and Superbowl. The best team does not always execute and win when they are supposed to.

Bama - suck it up.


I would say

that the best team in the country rarely wins the NC in basketball or baseball. It happens more often in football than in any other major sport. In football however the runner-up team is not always 2nd best.

Why do you say they are the best?

Bama struggled on offense against Va Tech.
Bama struggled against a Texas A&M team that finished 8-4.
Bama struggled against Miss St.
Bama LOST to Auburn who also has only 1 loss which was early in the year.
Mizzouri's only loss came in double OT with their back-up QB.

FSU speaks for themselves this year so there is only 1 spot left but I don't think Bama should get the nod that easy.

Would you favor Missouri over Alabama on a neutral field?

Which teams would you pick over the Tide on a neutral field?


FSU b/c Bama's corners are their weak spot and FSU WRs

are best in the nation.


I agree. For me, I think they'd be the only one.***

Missouri's WRs are no slouch


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 1:30 PM
 

Missouri also has an excellent run D


That's a tough game to breakdown


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 1:27 PM
 

I feel that Mizzou would have a slight advantage on offense.
I think Mizzou can slow down the Bama run game considerably and it would come down to their secondary vs the Bama receivers and McCarron.
We will know a lot more after this weekend. If Bama were in this game it would be hard for me to pick Mizzou but that would mean Bama did not lose last week either.

My main point was that it should not simply be given to Bama just because of their name. There are reasons why Bama could be #2 but they are not an obvious choice as the second best team in the country.


I agree they don't deserve to play for the title...

(Unless Ohio St. and Florida St. both lose)

However, I do think they may be one of the two best teams in the country.


They could be

but the OP suggested it was obviously them. I completely disagree with that.


Bama beat VT by 25 and held MSU to 7 and still won


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 1:03 PM
 

that game by 13. Yeah they did struggle against A&M and I'm not big on Bama's CBs which is why i believe they struggled in that game, but not many teams can really exploit that.

Also, Auburn struggled against Washington St, Miss St, Ole Miss, A&M, and UGA.

Missouri had a close scrape with A&M too.

What was your point again?


When Bama lost Sunseri, their D took a major hit. He was

the QB of the D.

My point was


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 1:29 PM
 

that Bama is not the obvious second best team in the country. Sure an argument could be made for them, but an argument could be made for Auburn, Missouri, and maybe even a stretch for Ohio State as well.


...and OK St.***

2019 purple level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Possibly so


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 1:34 PM
 

a loss to WVU looks really bad though. They are one curious game away from playing for the title though.


Re: Bama beat VT by 25 and held MSU to 7 and still won

Bama may have beat VT by 25 but VT had more yards on Offense. If VT had a decent QB the score would have been a lot closer and VT probably would have won. Too Tall Logan threw a pick six and Bama a 2 special teams TD's. Put a decent QB in there and VT would have punted less and Bama would not have had as many chances to run the Punt return or the Pick Six. Bama is far from the second best team in the country and I'm hoping Clemson can prove that come Orange Bowl time.

I agree with you on this. You have to prove it on the field. But Auburn is not your typical one loss team. They really should be a 3 loss team if not for the golden horse shoe up the butt.

While the UGA game was not as important, that was just pure luck.


FSU has the most talent on either side of the ball this year

Best O and best D. Period. Can they lose? Sure, but the chances are pretty slim. I've posted it for weeks... FSU -6 1/2 against anybody.

2019 purple level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

I agree and


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 12:54 PM
 

I feel that still would not be getting the credit they deserve had we not given them such a giant win in our game.

If we play well in that game and lose by 10 then I think they are currently making the same arguments that OSU is.


Re: Bama and FSU are the two best teams in NCAA football


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 1:12 PM
 

FSU maybe the best team this year but as just a fan I would like to see a game between them and Auburn. Just to see if AU can pull another miracle out their.....

As a coot, I agree the public is tired of the SEC and wants to see new faces so that will not happen unless it gets really wierd this weekend.


Doesn't have to get too weird


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 1:33 PM
 

Auburn and Michigan State win and you get your wish.

I personally think FSU matches up better with Bama, Missouri, and OSU than they do with Auburn. About the only weakness FSU has shown is that teams can run on them a little at times.


Re: Bama is not one of the two best teams***

Currently, Bama has wins against


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 2:00 PM
 

2 top 25 (BCS) teams. FSU has a win against 1. Ohio St has a win against 1. Auburn has 3.

I don't believe FSU has the best team in the country unless they beat Auburn. That said, if OS wins tomorrow, they deserve their spot in the fine BCS system and should play for the NC.

You mean where teams are currently ranked?


Posted: Dec 6, 2013 2:06 PM
 

Miami was #7 when FSU beat them. Their best player broke his ankle in that game and they didn't win another game.

Auburn beat Washington State by a small margin and Bama beat Miss St by 13.
FSU's closest game was by 4 scores.

Actually BC gave FSU fits but they did beat them by 14 points.
