    Technically, in that time span, there was some SEC team that DID lose. Can't remember off the top of my head but a team from the West.

    I think Les was tired of everyone talking about that streak so he threw the game but forgot we were playing a conference foe.

    The BCS has been great for college football. Far better than the system it replaced and it helped launch college football to unreal heights. It did a great job of matching the top two teams while keeping the bowls intact.

    Jimbo is a good coach. I would expect FSU to always be in the mix as long as he is there. Legit squad he built.

    After that game, there is no doubt in my mind who #1 & #2 are. Right down to the last seconds..

    It was ice cream, when it could been ice cream with sprinkles, hot fudge, a cherry, some whipped cream, cookie dough, waffle crisps, and white chocolate chips.
