What Would a Tim Tebow Injury Do to The National Championship Picture?

And if he’s fine?

If there is a clear frontrunner for the National Championship this year, it’s the Florida Gators, in spite of the fact that they looked more than a little vulnerable last week against Tennessee.  It may be a bit early in the year to start discussing the title already, but that’s the beauty of college football; it’s never really too early.  So let’s take a look at the teams remaining who have at least a legitimate shot at being one of the last two teams standing…..

Here are the teams with at least a legitimate shot at reaching the title game; let’s see what’s coming up for them:

Florida Gators 

It’s common knowledge that the SEC is brutal.  Their October 10th date with LSU looms large, but it isn’t the only obstacle.  Mississippi State, Georgia, and Florida State could always serve as stumbling blocks, and that SEC title game will be there waiting…

Texas Longhorns

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are both at home, and #20 Kansas is the only ranked team left until the Big 12 title game.

Alabama Crimson Tide

See:  Florida Gators.  Same problem.

LSU

And again;  the SEC teams might very well all eliminate each other.

Boise State

The Broncos will almost assuredly go undefeated; this may be the year we finally see the at large team in the title game.

 Virginia Tech

The road home is manageable for the Hokies, but not likely.

USC

The Pac 10 is rough this year, too, and as good as he may be at times, a freshman QB is still a freshman QB.

Ohio State

Seems like they’re in the mix every year, and this year is no different.  This may be Tressel’s best Defense yet, and that’s saying something.  In a soft Big 10, the Buckeyes should run the table.

All that being said, here’s my pick.  The SEC teams will indeed negate each other.  Texas will stumble (although McCoy will win the Heisman).  Virginia Tech and USC will both fall, leaving (Gasp) The Buckeyes and… Boise State.  The ‘Blowing big games’ stigma won’t hold much water for the Buckeyes… Boise State is no SEC team.  Tressel and the boys.
