If you dont want a Clemson-Bama 1-4 rematch, then Roll Tide!

this Saturday.

I promise you, Clemson will be playing Bama in the 1-4 game if UGA wins.

None of us want that, so I will reluctantly be rooting for Bama on Saturday.

I disagree with the underlying premise. I think conventional wisdom has so strongly dominated this discussion most are assuming its fact that Alabama gets in no matter what.

I simply don’t subscribe to that. The dynamics this year are totally different than last. If OK and OHSt both win convincingly, one of them goes in at the (4) spot over a 1-loss, non-conference champion Bama.

How is ok or 0310, both with one losses better than Bama who would have one loss? They aren’t and you can’t make a logical argument to the contrary. I don’t like it either, but that’s the fact.

I wouldn’t argue you, but the committee has made it crystal clear that winning your conference championship is a heavily weighed factor akin to whether you have negative pay history in your credit report or not in finance.

The commitee’s move last season called this hierarchy of factors into question by pulling in Alabama at #4. The results say that it was the correct decision.

What’s very different here is that there’s high likelihood we end up with a one loss BiG and B12 champion as opposed to two losses. Putting Alabama in this year as a 1-loss SEC championship loser would set further precedent and further diminish the value of winning your conference.

More fundamentally, doing that would poison the well of the system itself. It would send a direct message to other conferences that YOUR window for inclusion is NOTHING less than an undefeated season, while other conferences and/or teams have a mulligan regardless.

That negative dynamic is counter to the spirit of the system the CFP committee is trying to foster to the degree that I simply don’t think they’ll do it.

You make good points. You will never know exactly what goes on in that room. If 2 sec teams and Notre Dame gets in that will mean 3 power 5 commissioners will have to re-evaluate what they bought into. Since the CFP committee is not tied to the NCAA and has a TV contract theough 2025 it’s a tough spot for them to be in. I am sure when they all agreed to this they thought just one of them would be on the outside looking in each year. Hasn’t quite worked out that way.

Doesn’t matter they lost their conference and the committee isn’t going to put the sane two teams who just played in to play a second time. Inherently unfair to the winner of that game because it carried no effect

Initial game this year was 3 point difference … but if OK does win big, they earn it IMHO. Along with SEC winner.

I see what you're saying about OK or OHST being a 1-loss champ and getting in over a 1-loss non-champ Bama (should Bama lose to UGA). I just don't trust the committee to not pull out the ole "Eye Test" card and plug Bama in anyway. It really is like a Get Out of Jail Free card for them. As much as it bothers me for them to do that....because the eyes see what they want to see and usually see what the ears have heard and tell them to see...but it really is their ace in the hole.


Lot of card references today....sorry about that.

UNLESS, Clemson has a VERY marginal win against Pitt. In that case, they may put ND as one and the Tigers as the second seed - I agree, a very unlikely scenario.

There is no way in hades that the committee will put a one loss team that didn't win its conference in the top four, over teams with one loss that won their conference championship. I know that everyone has all sorts of conspiracy theories about Alabama getting a pass, the committee secretly wanting two SEC teams in the top 4, and all that, but the committee has their criteria and conference championships count for a lot.

Alabama getting in last year was an anomaly, after the stars aligned perfectly for them. Wisconsin lost to Ohio State, meaning that Wisconsin had a loss (with no real impressive wins), and Ohio State had a conference championship (but with 2 losses). The Pac 12 champ, USC, had 3 losses. If Wisconsin had won, or if Ohio State or USC only had 1 loss, I don't think Bama would've gotten in last year.

This year is a completely different situation if Bama loses to UGA and both Oklahoma and Ohio State win their conference championships.

on a last second field goal in week 6 and then comeback and beat Texas in the conference championship game.

They go 12-1 and are passed over by a team that loses their conference championship game?

I don't expect it to happen, but if it did the Big XII and every other conference (other the SEC) should demand changes.

if they lose.

Still better than Oklahoma, still better than Ohio State. That's what the committee cares about, not keeping conference chairmen happy.

I agree with you that it would likely cause major problems moving forward, but I stand by my prediction that Bama is already in.

beats Bama unless its scripted, imagine what your scenario would produce.

Sabaum would finish the season losing TWO GAMES IN A ROW!

There would be mass pachyderm stampedes to find the nearest cliff to dive over in Alabama. Plus, all the Clairol in the world wouldn't keep those last few strands of hair in place.

Tammy would roll her little corner of heaven completely.

Alas, all you delusional Jawja fans, not even part one of this scenario is actually going to happen. YOU are what is going to get rolled, and then, CLEMSON gets to take care of business against Bama, as it should be. (After crushing whoever else makes it in, of course. Can't forget about the half teams!)

I would take it a step further. The teams at the top of the rankings are there for a reason. They hardly ever lose 2 games in a row.

Nobody wants to face anybody in the playoffs who is coming off of a loss. Elite teams always respond.

I think the loss in the game prior to the semifinal meant way more to Bama than any sort of revenge factor from the season before. It's a refocusing tool and great coaches know how to use it.
