Do I Get a New Title for Correcting Mr. College Football?

Here is Tony Barnhart on the prospect of an Alabama-Florida SEC Championship Game:

1. We could have the best SEC championship game ever: In the new BCS Standings Alabama (9-0) is No. 1 and Florida (7-1) is No. 5. Alabama could certainly run the table against LSU, Mississippi State, and Auburn. Florida will be favored in its last four games at Vanderbilt, South Carolina, The Citadel, and at Florida State. If both teams win out we will have, at least on paper, the biggest SEC championship game ever. The SEC has had a No. 1 team in the game before (Tennessee in 1998) but the opponent back then was No. 23 Mississippi State. The best set of rankings came in 2003 when No. 3 LSU met No. 7 Georgia. If that happens, once again the BCS focus on Championship Saturday will be on the SEC title game. And for the third straight year and the eighth time since 1992, the winner could be headed to the national championship game. But having said all that I have to admit that….


The italicized stat is not right. The best combined rankings of two participants in the SEC Championship Game was the 1994 SEC Championship Game, which pitted unbeaten #3 Alabama against 9-1-1 #6 Florida. In light of the fact that we're discussing Alabama and Florida, I'm a little surprised that Tony didn't remember the best of the schools' five meetings in the title game. If the 2008 game lives up to the 1994 game, which Florida won 24-23 after being the first team to stop Jay Barker at the end of a close game, then Mike Slive and CBS will be very happy.

[Update: Ell makes a great point. Barnhart is using the BCS rankings. If he used the AP Poll rankings, then the 2003 LSU-Georgia game was #3 versus #5, thus marginally beating the 1994 game. Iron Chef Barnhart retains the title. The 1994 game has the best combined records for the participants, but not the best combined rankings.]

Sadly, Tony is talking only about the BCS and there was no BCS in 1994.

You both get to be right!

My friends all told me that the best way to spend rohan online gold is a good way. But I could not like spending my own rohan online crone. rohan crone has many ways for us to use. When you start the Rohan Online game, your character will be level 1. I remembered that when I started playing this Rohan game with some little cheap rohan money. If you do not like upgrading level step by step, you can cost rohan gold to help your character to reach level high.
