Saturday will simplify SEC race — and national title picture in turn

Saturday also will simplify my ballot. Only one SEC team besides Auburn will remain in striking distance of the top. One top five team is guaranteed to lose, and I’ll only have to imagine how four undefeated teams might fare if they played one another. The joy of the day won’t make me run and hug BCS coordinator Bill Hancock, but for 24 hours, I won’t be a completely insufferable pro-playoff loudmouth.
