The fall of the unbeatens begins...

It happens every October.  The first BCS rankings are released, and everyone wants to know what unbeaten will be left out of the BCS Title game.   But it happens every October, upsets and crazy plays mess up everything and these teams end up playing themselves out of the race.  Saturday, our list of unbeatens went from 11 to 6, and expect that to dwindle down even more the next few weeks.

Most interesting BCS argument now is not Oregon/K-St/Notre Dame, those teams will sort themselves out soon enough.   What's really interesting to consider, though, is what happens if LSU beats Alabama in Baton Rouge next week.  That would give us a likely 1- loss SEC Champ.  Could a 12-1 Bama be left out if 2 of the Oregon/K-St/ND trio remain undefeated?  I think so.
