Tulane is not "lucky" to be 9-1. They have won every game by winning it. Lucky is when the other team makes stupid mistakes to hand it to you. We have earned every win we have.

Didn't think so.
They exposed a TCU team that had won a bunch of close games all season. That's the comparison. That's the legit concern many have Instead of winning a NY6 championship we'd be trying to wn a nobdygivesaflyingFbowl.com if we don't play better.

Exposing TCU didn't change the outcome. Georgia still would have won the same trophy, regardless. And their job wasn't to expose TCU. Their job was to win the game. Period. Which they did.

We're talking a team that hasn't trailed in the second half IN A MONTH.

But also, a team that hasn't beaten a sub-.500 team by more than 7 points in a month--it's all in how you want to spin it.

You miss the point again. We aren't Georgia in your scenario. we are TCU. The team that squeaked by in a number of their wins. Then when they faced the big boy they got exposed. That's what people are worried about. If we do squeak our way to the NY6 slot we get exposed in a major Bowl for all to see.

people forget that TCU also lost their main weapon- Kendrick Miller- the RB who the Saints drafted over Spears. Granted, the Saints drafted the wrong RB, but he was definitely a major factor in the blowout since he couldn't play.

This is exactly my nightmare scenario.… We win our remaining games and get matched up against Alabama in the peach bowl. I would fear a nationally televised humiliation.

The good thing about a NY6 game is that you have time to get healthy. When healthy, we're better than the team that had Ole Miss on the ropes.

Miller doesn't account for that complete embarrassment. If he was that good he would have been the first pick in the draft.
