Alabama Just Killed The 4 Team Playoff

There is absolutely no way Alabama and 2 SEC teams got additional access to winning the national title without ramifications.

The rest of the nation will demand changes....

#4 seems about right for Alabama, but certainly lots of

complaining coming up for sure.

If this past weekend were a round of 8 instead of CCCG's, where regular season Power 5 champions auto-qualify plus 3 at-large... 1) We wouldn't have to add an extra game to reach 8, 2) We could get rid of divisions and play more league teams more often through the regular season.

In that scenario Ohio State still would have been out according to the prior CFP rankings. Considering their path last year they really don't have room to complain about this year's.

Go Tigers.

If it were an 8 team playoff this year SEC would have gotten 3 teams in. The fix is in they want an SEC representative and if 1 team in isn't winning them CFP championships then they will increase the odds. Really has more to do with Bama than anything else. They have bought in that they are the class of CFB and no one can win a National Championship without Bama having a chance as well.

Guessing you did well in probability and statistics. Go to 8 and SEC/ESPN perennially gets 2 and argues for 3.

Really? Jim Delaney has more political power than anyone in NCAA, and they left his conference out. This shows that since the CFP committee is a seperate LLC, that they pick the best 4 regardless of conferences and politics. You can't seriously believe that O31O is better than Alabama on neutral field.

I hate the SEC as much as anybody, but if I asked you who are the 5 best teams in the country, forget about records, just use you eyes. My 5 would be CLEM, OKLA, UGA, AUB, BAMA

The SEC in balance was wretched this year, but those top 3 are good. Nobody from the Big10 is better than any of those 3 teams IMO

Exactly. If the people upset on here thought Bama was an easier win than Ohio State we wouldn't be seeing this level of anger.

CLEM would be +/- 3 pts vs. all three SEC opponents. They would have probably been -10 with OSU and -14 on WISC. CLEM would have beaten WISC similar to MIA, that game would have been a bloodbath. That being said, WISC would have made things cleaner today for sure


They should go back to just 2 teams

They had to dig a Bama team out of the trash just to get to 4. If they can't even find 4 quality teams for the playoff, how the heck are they going to get 8?
