SEC will dominate a 12 team playoff
We already dominated the 4 team playoff.

Now you throw in Florida, Georgia almost every year and many years LSU, A&M, Auburn will he in and once in awhile you’ll get a top 12 Arkansas, MSU, Kentucky, Ole Miss.

Every year half the teams will be SEC. And they’re used to week in week out grinds and those teams like Clemson, Oklahoma, Ohio State who can sometimes manage a one time victory over a top SEC team will now almost never win it all because they won’t win 3 straight games against SEC foes

The rankings will be thought out enough to keep Clemson and OSU type teams in the final 4. We see teams like Virginia get easy brackets all the time in Basketball.

All except Arkansas have finished in the top 12 at least once since playoffs started.

Lol why view Florida and Georgia as perennially better than LSU? Recently we’ve beat both and we’re in the playoffs more recently than either

You can't just be in the Top 12. The new format has a million automatic bids meaning in reality you'll have to be in the top 6-7 at worst.

If you go 10-2 and finish #11 you aren't getting into the playoff.

When has Kentucky finished top 12?

re: SEC will dominate a 12 team playoff
The proposal is auto bid to 6 highest ranked conference champs. Almost always winner of the P5 conferences is top 12. Highest ranked winner of the G5 conferences will be top 15 sometimes top 12.

That format might yield 2 teams outside the top 12 at most.

If you’re ranked 10th or higher you’re getting in. 11 or 12th you have a shot but not guaranteed.

2014 MSU was 8th before selection day. That team would have made it.

2015 OM was 12th. Had a shot but probably doesn’t get in.

2018 UK was 15 before selection. No bid.

Arkansas had top 10 teams under Petrino.

It is not out of the realm of possibility that one of these teams makes it once in awhile.

2018

The first round of voting was released Tuesday with Kentucky checking in at No. 9. The committee will update its ranking every Tuesday between now and the end of the regular season. The final ranking, which will determine the four playoff teams and other New Year’s Six bowl participants will be released on Dec. 2.

Probably 2018. They had a banner year and beat Penn State in their new year's bowl

I just glanced at few years and all the P5 champs are in the top ten every year and a G5 is usually there as well. So, yes, most years it probably will the top 12.

Really, then who is getting in?

The #11 ranked team will get a bid EVERY time.


The Power 5 conference champs are likely to all be ranked inside the top 12 and they all get in as champs. The Group of 5 champs also get in but are likely ranked outside the top 12.

That leaves 6 "at large" spots that will be awarded by the CFP ranking and any team sitting at #11 is IN.

If you think the SEC is going to get 4 teams into a playoff you are crazy. And every one of these mentioned as being barely in the Top 12 was a #3 or #4 SEC team.

The next giant argument is "A 9-3 SEC team that finished 3rd in their division and went 5-3 in their league can't play for a national title when Team X from Conference X went 11-1".

I'm not saying I agree with any of this, but it's absolutely the next giant media blow up argument about the playoff.

If we could get 2 in a 4 team playoff there’s no reason to believe we can’t get 4 in a 12 team playoff
