Football Roundtable: Should Alabama Still Be in the BCS Top Five?


The Alabama Crimson Tide lost their first game of the season against the Texas A&M Aggies this past weekend.

The Aggies led the Crimson Tide the entire game and Alabama officially lost the game on a neutral zone infraction on a punt return attempt in the fourth quarter. Johnny Manziel helped the Aggies beat the Crimson Tide as he threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns.

The former #1 Alabama Crimson Tide fell to #4 in the current BCS Rankings.

Kansas State is the new #1, Oregon is #2, and Notre Dame is #3. The Crimson Tide sit only one spot ahead SEC foe, Georgia.

Should Alabama still be in the BCS Top Five after losing to Texas A&M?

George: Yes, Bama deserves to be in the top five. Even with the loss, they are still easily one of the top five teams in the country. They still may move back into national title contention with losses to the top three teams in the country. Each have difficult games coming up.

Ricky: Yes, but I do not think Alabama should be #4 in the current BCS rankings. I feel that the only reason they are #4 after losing is because their name is “Alabama.” Honestly, after the LSU game, I thought this year’s team was not as good as last year. I never thought they would lose to Texas A&M. I thought they would lose to Oregon. Nonetheless, I feel Bama should be #5 and Georgia should be #4.

    Duh… ya they should be… they are CLEARLY the top-ranked 1-loss team! There are 3 teams with no losses ahead of them, and then Alabama is #4 as the highest ranked 1-loss team. Where’s the controversy?
