Time for the NCAA Semifinals

Monday, November 30, 2009

This weekends SEC title game is going to be pretty difficult to top by any game this season or any SEC title game in the future. Alabama and Florida have been the #1 and #2 ranked teams for much of the season. The two teams are undefeated. The two teams have just knocked off their in state rivals. They both have National Championship winning coaches. They both have 5 star recruits everywhere on the field. They both know what is at stake in this game. Winner gets a chance at the Crystal Ball and loser gets some Sugar.

Even if Texas does get upset by Nebraska on Saturday, the SEC Championship game should serve as a Semifinal. In 2006 Michigan was thought to have a chance at a rematch with Ohio State but were passed up in favor of Florida. The same should happen this season. In 2006 Michigan had a case over Florida because both teams had a loss, but the committee rightfully chose to avoid a rematch. This season there are potentially three undefeated teams waiting for the opportunity to play in the BCS Title game. All of whom would have just as much a claim to the game as a Florida/Alabama loser would.

So let's enjoy saturday's game for what it is. A battle between two of the best college teams in the country with everything on the line. It's the psuedo playoff game we always wanted.

And the preliminary blogpoll after the break.
