If we could get 2 in a 4 team playoff


That happened 1 time in 7 years and took a strange set of circumstances in which the competition for the #4 seed both had 2 losses and had both losses being blowouts, one to an average team.

Dude - this is the whole reason they are wanting to expand - to make some other conference money besides the SEC

You will start to see rivalry games moved up in the schedule because some teams will rest their starters the last game if they are for sure in.

re: SEC will dominate a 12 team playoff
Let’s say:

Alabama: 13-0, Wins SEC
Florida: 12-1, Loses SEC championship to Bama
Georgia: 11-1, loss to Florida
LSU: 11-1, loss to Bama

All 4 of those are getting in without question

re: SEC will dominate a 12 team playoff
That’s mostly because the SEC has run away with recruiting and revenue since Urban/Saban showed up. It’s not all geography (ACC and B12 pipeline the same territory). If the playing field is leveled a bit I predict teams outside of the SEC that can get exposure and bucks can improve their competitive standing. Saban et al won’t be around forever (...I think)

How many years have 4 SEC teams gone into bowl season with 0 or 1 losses in the last 20 years?

I didn’t say it was gonna happen a ton. My point was that if the circumstances are right we could absolutely see 4 SEC teams in a 12 team playoff

Personally though I think it should have been 8

Just like all the team who can't make the top 4, there will always be people crying for more so they can at least say they had a shot.

Plus with this opt-out craze in the lesser bowl games, maybe these CEOs think it is another way to generate interest and keep those guys playing.

I think expansion is stupid

Sure, it's possible. I just think that in general people aren't grasping that this entire expansion is based around engaging more of the country. The SEC will probably get, on average, 3 teams a year would be my guess. 3 most years 2 some years and 4 some years.

People are going to flip the fvck out when 10-2 UCLA gets left out for 9-4 Florida, though. Or when 11-1 Tulsa or Coastal Carolina gets left out for 9-3 Auburn. I just think that there is going to be an unwritten cap on teams from a league (specifically this league), and the argument is going to be "they barely broke .500 in their league they can't be national champs".

One freak year does not make a dynasty. Your once in a generation QB is gone and he’s not coming back. Unless UF continues to fling shoes into the foggy night I wouldn’t count on much success in the coming years

We have three National Titles and another Title game appearance since your last National Title.

If you thought the whining was annoying before this new playoff system was announced, just wait until the final 8 has 5-6 SEC teams competing. The new playoff system is only going to further demonstrate the superiority of the SEC

ACC Champ, let's say Clempson
B12 Champ, let's say Texass
PAC12 Champ, let's say USC
B10 Champ, Let's say Penn State
AAC Champ, let's say Houston

That's 6 teams.

Notre Dame (will be automatic, damn near every year)
Florida: 12-1, Loses SEC championship to Bama
Georgia: 11-1, loss to Florida
LSU: 11-1, loss to Bama


Ohio State?
Meatchickin?
Oklahoma?
Stanford?
Florida State?
Oregon?

I think you are going to see some interesting polls once this is implemented, and several SEC teams that are better than teams from other conferences aren't going to poll as high, to keep them out of the playoff picture and get teams with more juice in.

Also SOG my bad I just realized I’m a complete idiot because UF plays LSU every year so UF cant go undefeated in the regular season if LSU only loses to Bama.

Darn those stupid rivalries

This helps those teams in the historical 8 to 15 range the most

re: SEC will dominate a 12 team playoff
Georgia is not losing any sleep worrying about LSU. The past is past and Georgia now has the best players in the entire country. LSU meanwhile does not - and is dealing with major NCAA distractions. You have to know big time probation and sanctions are coming to BR and that isn’t going to help recruiting or team morale. If y’all were not so full of yourselves I could almost feel sorry for you
