Big problem I have with Alabama is even if

Posted: Oct 31, 2018 6:33 PM
 

they lose to LSU, and do not win their division, they will be a four seed, like last year. Additionally, like last year, they will avoid having to play in a conference game which gives them an extra week’s rest.

Here’s my problem...two years ago Saben said no team should be in the CFP unless they win their conference. Last year he did not even win his division but successfully campaigned to get his team in.

You can say the same thing about Notre Dame as well. They don't even have to play a championship game, period.

I’d disagree with ND. I feel if they lose everyone else would lose twice but I’d go so far to say that a highly ranked two loss conference champion would get in.

Peeps on here say they don’t care if nd loses or not but imo if we ran into disaster but won acc with one loss, we get the nod over them. So I pull strongly for them to lose if for no other reason but to give us ins.

Go Tigers!!!

If they had to play us in the ACC championship game they would lose , keeping them out of the CFP . They get that exclusion and thus if they go unbeaten will ( IMHO ) back in not having to beat a quality opponent in the championship game of any conference . Alabama not winning their division doesn't bother me when they are included .
Alabama , if we are being honest... deserves the benefit of the doubt based simply on their enormous and unquestionable amount of success during Saban's remarkable and historical tenure .

Success or not, if you don't win your own conference you shouldn't be in the playoff.

That has already been eliminated as a disqualification , so there's little value in discussing it .

I'm right there with you, but if our boys stay healthy, the only team to beat Clemson is Clemson. That is not going to happen. Tigers are in 4th quarter mode...

If Bama loses and ends up 4 and we end up 1, that will just suck.

You are correct. Our D did not like how things went down last year. We got the O to back it up now

How about this as a NEW RULE?

If you are not a conference champion and are ranked #4 then....

#4 plays #5 for the right to take the official #4 playoff spot. This would take care of the very rare situation that a non-conference champion gets in and it also give an opportunity for #5 to make the CFP. This could apply to ND if they get the #4 slot or even Bama last year.

This would have meant that Bama would have had to play Ohio State last year for the right to be the #4 CFP team.

I actually agree with that but I’d expand it to 6 get in 3-6 and 4-5 play. Then 1 & 2 would be worth getting. Because you could have 6 conference champions or 5+1.

I just think if you had 6 like that, you’d have a little less bias. That would also allow a team like UCF to get a 6 spot.

...having it easy by sitting and eating popcorn while the other three teams are fighting for a conference championship. The 6 team playoff scenario like you have it still doesn't solve the problem.

It would be an interesting twist to the CFP if on rare occasion #4 and #5 fight it out for a CFP spot.

You're exactly right, an extra week of rest, an extra week to get healthy, an extra week to work on fundamentals. Or put another way, an extra 20% of time to do all of the above. Give a good coach that much more time than his opponent and he's going to be hard to beat.

That’s why it’s in our interest for Bama to win on Saturday. If they lose we get Bama anyway and a second SEC team. It’s last year all over again... except we win.

Clemson fares better against Alabama with 1 week prep vs. 1 month. Unfortunately, we were an easier study for them last year without DW4. Hope they win out & we get ND or Mich in semis. With a more dynamic offense, I like our chances against them in a final.

1: this topic has been discussed about 1000 times here.

2: why does no one understand that Alabama only got in last year because Ohio State has two loss’? They did sneak in, but because of the two loss’. Had Ohio State had 1 loss, there’s a 0% chance Alabama gets in.

This year ND is still undefeated, and OSU, Mich, and OK have one loss. It’s pretty likely that a two of those teams are 1 loss conf champs when the music stops. Alabama will have a problem on their hands in his case.


You make too much sense.

I don't think that was Saban. I think that was Meyer


Posted: Nov 1, 2018 8:50 AM
 

I said you shouldn't be considered when he was at Florida

but then changed his mind when he was at OSU.


i agree with your sentiment about bama and nd. they both get special treatment.
the one thing I will add is, at least bama gets special treatment based off what they have done on the field the last decade.

nd gets special treatment based off crap 100 years ago and a bunch of stupid Irish and/ or catholies who want to identist with them for no good reason.


Re: I don't think that was Saban. I think that was Meyer


Posted: Nov 1, 2018 11:14 AM
 

It was both of them. Meyer said it last year because he was trying to keep Bama from getting in. Whereas the year before Satan was saying it because he was trying to keep OSU out. Remember what happened last time those 2 met. OSU ran all over Bama.

Win or lose Alabama continues to be one of the four....


Posted: Nov 1, 2018 9:41 AM
 

best teams in the country. I hate that they make the PO without even a division title but this isn't about divisions and it isn't about conference champs, it's about putting the best four teams in the playoff. The goal is flawed even though we seem to get the best four now, imo.

We nee four conferences with 16 teams each, four pods in each conference with four teams in each pod.

The pods winners play off, then conferences have a true champ who meet in the post season in a final four. It becomes a more fair system which shortens the season for the players.

All the money involved in football is from TV so folks could save a ton of money traveling to bowl games.
