That’s it.  As slowly as it comes, it quickly goes away.  For all intensive purposes the 2012 college football regular season is behind us.  Sure, Oregon State has a glorified scrimmage against an also-ran Nicholls State team Saturday and the various BCS conferences are playing their league championship games as well, but the National Title Game has been decided and we’re merely waiting for the SEC to tell us who’ll be playing Notre Dame in the game.  Much has been made of either Alabama or Georgia representing as #2 and others have gone as far as to lobby for Florida to do the same, but there are a handful of 1-loss teams on the outside looking in who’d be happy to state their case for a shot at the Fighting Irish.  Problem is…they’re not in the SEC.

While they may be one of the top college football teams this season, they sit behind No. 1 Notre Dame (12-0), No. 2 Alabama (11-1), No. 3 Georgia (11-1), and No. 4 Florida (11-1) with no more games left to play and no chance of moving into...
