Over the last three years, we have the exact same record as Alabama. We've each lost to the other twice, and we've each lost once to an East team in that three year time period. We both lost to Auburn in 2010. They lost to A&M this year, we lost to Arky in 2010. That's the extent of all of our losses, a combined 68-6 over a three year stretch taking out losses to each other.
To me, this is the best example of why you shouldn't let your panties get in a bunch about BCS national titles. Getting into that game is just as much about politics and luck as it is about being good on the football field all season. Just ask Oklahoma State last year. Or Auburn in 2004. Or USC in 2003. Or Utah in 2008 (remember when they beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl after an undefeated season). And, I could go on and on. What about that year that FSU won the title with the same record as Miami even though they had lost to Miami (1993?)?
