How soon will we simply cancel the regular season?

These “committees” continue to award SEC teams with post season participation that don’t deserve it. Alabama in football this year and Florida in baseball. If they have SEC by their name and/or pass the eye test, they get an invitation no matter what happens in the regular season.
And just wait until December when the expanded playoffs happen.

The regular season means nothing if you are in that conference.

I didn't think Fla was deserving but they did a pretty solid post season job for themselves much to my disappointment

is getting into the playoffs

there is no reason why UGA, Ohio State, and FSU (heck even Clemson :) ) couldn't have won a NC last year in football but never got a chance.

So why play the regular season if we want to justify their post season performance as a reason they should have been in?

No one can give a good answer as to why play the regular season if we simply going to reward conference affiliation, eye test, and perceived roster strength.

The same applied to OSU over TCU in 2014.

Their postseason performance says otherwise.

But the question was about the regular season not the post season. Regular season record 36-30 and conference record 13-17, a losing record in conference play.

The SEC is by far the best conference in CBB

which they continue to prove on an annual basis as they comprise basically half of the CWS field every year, and pretty frequently have both of the finalists at the CWS as well.

When the conference track record is that strong, the teams within that conference are going to get a bump in tournament seeding.

If getting in is based on your overall play during the regular season, then a 28-27 regular season record should not have gotten in unless they won a conference tournament. Their play over that time didn't deserve it but they certainly made the most of the invitation gift they were handed in the post season.

But, unfortunately, Once in the tournament, UFla showed they could compete in the MCWS. They peaked at the right time.

No argument- but explain why they play the regular season schedule. What is the purpose?

For those not paying attention, there have been 100’s of tweets, radio and tv segments already dedicated to asking the question “can 5 SEC teams make the playoffs this year”. It’s deliberate talking points that is setting the stage no matter what happens on the field. See attached. This is just one of those tweets.
