Hypothetical scenario for the assembled masses...

I realize that the thought of the Dawgs making it through this season undefeated isn't even a twinkle in Mark Richt's eye this early, but being the eternal optimist that I am (and seeing nothing so far to make a pessimist out of me) I have to put this out there:

If Georgia, Ohio State and Boise State all finish the season undefeated and win their respective conferences, does Georgia get snubbed for the BCS Title Game?

I posed this question to Senator Blutarsky the other day.  He is convinced that if anyone, even Mississippi State, makes it through the SECCG undefeated, they'll play for the national title.  He said that there is no real scenario which would keep a team with that resume out of the game.

But, what about Auburn in 2004?  Undefeated SEC team.  Won the SECCG.  Did not get a chance to play for the national championship.  Granted, Auburn's competition for a spot in the game was USC and Oklahoma, two perennial powerhouses who were also undefeated.  Should Georgia finish the season unscathed, the Dawgs would likely be fighting with Boise State for the "right" to play the Buckeyes.  Boise State does not have the prominence or the schedule that Oklahoma or USC had in 2004.  But, ever since that cute little win over the Sooners in the Fiesta Bowl, the Broncos stock has been consistently rising.  The outcry to let one of the "little guys" have a shot at the title has reached a fever pitch.

As much as I want to be optimistic, I can't imagine a scenario where the voters would allow UGA to jump Boise if both finish undefeated.  Sure, Georgia would kill Boise on the computer polls; but every year, it's the human polls that decide the title game participants.  I am not sure Georgia would have the mob in its corner.

I welcome someone to convince me otherwise.
