Bama loss would be bad

because it would almost guarantee two SEC teams in the playoff just like last year.


As long as the SEC West Champ wins the SEC, there won't be

two SEC teams in the playoff.

If UGA/UK (yes, Kentucky can still win the SEC East...) lose the SECCG, they'll have two losses. If Bama loses and LSU wins the Conference, I can't imagine they'd want to put two teams that already played in the Playoff.

Granted, there's no such thing as Precedent in the CFP as the Committee is all over the place every year, but we've never had two teams who have already played each other both make it.

A bama loss in the sec championship game would. A lot depends on what ND does and the B12.

If Norte Dame lose Fowler and ESPN will try to find a way to get three SEC teams in.

A Bama loss is never bad

We just need to take care of our own business. Who cares if two SEC teams make it? Regardless of who is there, we have to beat the two teams they put us up against, and they will be top four teams. I’m not scared of Georgia.

You’re right, technically any team that wins the natty has to do that. It’s just more discussion than anything. I would say most people are in favor of having four conference champs, but as stated above the committee has been all over the place.

I wish it required a conference championship

or at least a division championship (looking at you Bama), but it doesn’t. Win 15 and we are the champs, and what the other guys do doesn’t matter. Might be fun to send two SEC teams packing. Do that and win 15, and this would always be known as the best team ever.

That said, I still want Bama, UGA and LSU to lose every game (except when LSU beats Bama).

Not sure it would guarantee anything. If LSU wins and Bama doesn’t make SEC championship game, and LSU wins SEC, Bama doesn’t have a great strength of record to put up against other 1 loss teams. Chaos can happen during championship week, so anything is still possible. But it’s hard to guarantee anything at this point, lots of football left. I don’t see Bama losing 2 though with LSU, miss st, Auburn, and possibly SEC east champ (UGA or KY)


Quickest way to disband the Committee

First ranking would have

1. Bama
2. LSU
3. UGA
4. Kentucky
5. Notre Dame
6. Clemson
7. Michigan
8. Oklahoma
9. Ohio State
10. Washington State

Notre Dame, IMO, seems to be the fly in the ointment.
I think they need to lose and drop out of the top 5, but I don't see it happening.
Clemson just needs to win out, and they are in, but a loss right now could drop them out of the top 5 and with their remaining schedule might not get back in.
I don't think Bama loses a game the rest of the regular season and more than likely would face either Georgia or Kentucky, both of whom had good wins yesterday and will go up against each other this week for the division lead.
But here is Notre Dame, which doesn't have to play in a conference championship game and could end up probably as high as #2 if Clemson should drop a game.
By the way, does anybody have an opinion, or can they provide the facts as to whether or not Notre Dame can be "forced" to join a conference to make the playoffs?

No, nothing is there but imo the committee could make a huge play and essentially force them to if they were left out after going undefeated. That would force their hands but is the committee that bold?

I'm starting to think the only way they get two in is if Georgia or Kentucky wins the SEC anything else would be a playoff rematch.

Kentucky loses to UGA, Kentucky our. LSU loses to Bama, LSU out. UGA loses to BAMA, UGA out. The disaster would be for LSU to beat BAMA, then you get a scenario for 2 SEC teams, but they still need ND to lose. I still think Cuse can play with ND, but I don’t hear any TV people even remotely entertaining that idea. My guess is it will be Bama, Clemson, ND, and then winner of O310 St & UM. OKLAHOMA will be standing on the outside crying about why their #50 defense (or whatever it is?) deserves to be in.


I see LSU & Bama in anyway***

I'll take my chances. If they lose, it's setting up to be different than last year. Bama got in over Ohio St. last year because the buckeyes had 2 losses, and it was still close. The Sec champ is in. ND, if undefeated, is in. The other two spots come from ACC, Big 10, Big 12. We're in if undefeated, obviously.

Granted, if ND loses and/or the Big 10 or Big 12 champ has 2 losses, they'd be in. Plus, Lsu would still have to win at A&M which won't be easy.

Bama's not losing, so no worries. We just need to take care of the rest of our business. BC could be very tricky, especially if they beat Va Tech this weekend.
