No doubt. I just find it unlikely unless Kansas really takes Mizzou and OU out behind the woodshed while LSU narrowly wins a couple of their remaining games. Kansas needs help from a lot of voters.

Again, I know all the scenarios. I know how the system works. I know lots of things COULD happen. But you mentioned a one loss LSU team and then claimed that "Kansas gets to play in the championship game."
Only an idiot would think a two loss LSU team is going to stay in front of Kansas. That aspect is of no relevance and simply doesn't need to be discussed. Nobody is going to claim a two loss LSU team deserves to be ahead of Kansas. Its a one loss LSU team that is the issue. And when you claim that Kansas gets to go to the title game because LSU doesn't get to redeem themselves it just doesn't make any sense.
It isn't breaking news to anyone that LSU will slip if they lose.
