So Florida goes without even playing for its conference title? Yeah that's possible I guess.
Alabama played for the national title last year without playing for the SEC title as LSU won the SEC West.
That's the one thing that's really screwed up about the BCS. To me, if you don't even play for your conference title or win your conference, you shouldn't be in the discussion for the national title, period. At the very least, you should be your conference champ to be in the mix when it comes time to discuss national title players.
