CBS - Georgia overated

No. 4 Georgia -- Overrated

The SEC: It just means more ... unless it's a loss to South Carolina. Then it doesn't mean anything. Seriously, let's go through the teams in this week's top 10, according to the CFP Selection Committee. Of those 10 teams, four don't have a loss. The other six teams have six losses between them. Here's a list of the teams that have beaten those six: No. 1 LSU, No. 8 Minnesota, No. 12 Auburn, No. 24 Kansas State, USC ... South Carolina.

Somehow, the team with the worst of those losses would be in the College Football Playoff if the season ended right now. Of course, the committee will point to Georgia's wins over No. 11 Florida and No. 16 Notre Dame as reasons for ranking it so high, and I'm not dismissing those wins. Only few teams in the country have two better wins than those on their resume.

But it's also hard to find teams with losses to South Carolina on their resume because South Carolina has only won four games this season. Those four wins have come against Charleston Southern, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and of course, Georgia. The same team that beat Georgia just lost at home to No. 25 Appalachian State on Saturday. A week after Appalachian State lost at home to Georgia Southern.

Now, if we compare Georgia's resume to No. 5 Alabama, as I said above, Georgia has the better wins. What Alabama doesn't have, however, is a loss to South Carolina. Its lone loss just came to No. 1 LSU by five points with a quarterback who wasn't fully healthy. Now, if there's any good news, it's that Georgia still has plenty of chances to prove itself worthy. It gets No. 12 Auburn this weekend, and if it wins the SEC East, it'll face LSU or maybe Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. So if it wins out, it will deserve to be in the top four. At the moment, however, it does not.

Look at it another way.... what will be more impressive, the #7 Jawja team losing to Auburn or the #4 team. Jawja at 4 is just a mechanism to increase the news cycles and clicks when the headline comes out that Jawja shyatt the bed.

The CFP committee is just assuring that Jawja is out in december... give them the spotlight and they will jawja it.
