    Seems like we're heading towards 5 teams/Conf Champs all with varying arguments that they should get in.

    ACC - Undefeated FSU (Best Win Louisville)
    B12 - 1 Loss Texas (Best in @ top 10 Alabama)
    B1G - Undefeated Cheaters or OSU
    PAC - Undefeated UW or 1 Loss Oregon (#5-7 UW Best win)
    SEC - Undefeated UGA or 1 Loss Bama (Best win #5-7 UGA)

    B12 if FSU stays undefeated

    I don’t think it’s likely, but I could see a scenario that an undefeated team gets left out. The committee has built in cover with the 12 team playoff coming next year.

    Not really a chance for anyone to be truly fucked. That could only happen if there were 5 undefeated teams. Hard for anyone to truly complain if you don't get in with a loss. None of the remaining undefeated teams would be left out

    If you start having 1 loss teams then someone will get fucked. Like if Bama was a 1 loss SEC champion are they getting in over Texas?

    I wouldn't see that as either getting fucked...head to head loss plus the best win vs losing to a worse team is at least a reasonable argument

    OSU undefeated
    FSU undefeated
    Washington undefeated
    Texas one loss
    Bama one loss

    That's a nightmare scenario. Texas has h2h over Bama but Bama would be coming off a win vs an undefeated back to back national champion and they'd be champ of the conference that's won 14 of 17 titles. You're going to leave that conference out entirely?!?!?! I mean come on lol. Fans in other conferences would giggle but that's be a joke.

    It'll probably work it's way out so this is all pointless.

    I'm saying the SEC champion is going to get in and Texas could get left out in certain scenarios. Texas would prob think they were fucked in that scenario

    Texas beat Alabama on the road in Tuscaloosa. If both have one loss and both are conference champs, it’s Texas.

    None of the unbeatens are getting jumped if they win out.

    There are 5 PAC 12 teams ranked and 6 SEC, so conference strength of schedule isn’t that different.

    I know it's a fun talking point but the bolded could not be less relevant to the decision. It would be quite interesting to see how the committee would handle it, but my guess is texas would get in.

    I don't think there is any way we get in under that circumstance. That said I think one of Texas or Washington lose this weekend and make this all moot. Then the question will be Oregon vs. Bama

    Maybe. I think the committee will build into the result it wants. If texas is ahead of bama during the conference championship games, my guess is they'll stay. If they want bama in, I'd bet on them leapfrogging texas the week before

    Seems as long ago as Elliott running through your defense.

    Texas has head to head, and in the type of TV ratings analysis that no one on the committee ever mentions, they bring viewers. It’s not like it’s Bama trying to get in over TCU or Baylor.

    People have said that yearly for 10 years but more often than not we look up oh look an SEC team won it all again. It's the best conference, period. Leaving out that champ would be a joke.

    Gotta leave bama out in that situation. I'll hate it, but it's clearly the right call

    Almost made this an option, but seemingly always does. Texas will probably lose in the B12 Championship game and the other 4 conference winners will send someone in.

    This hypothetical would get fun....
    *Undefeated FSU
    *Undefeated Big
    *One Loss Bama
    *One Loss Oregon
    One Loss Washington
    One Loss UGA

    Would UGA bump anyone if the SECCG was close?

    I think the committee has explicitly stated that previous years do not factor in.

    IDK how you remove that bias b/c it's going to creep in

    imo having two teams from the same conference should be avoided if at all possible and my guess is the committee feels the same way.

    Its fun to discuss and get worked up about, but there is no way that the only loses remaining among these teams are the ones playing each other. I think Texas will lose again. FSU and Louisville better watch out for the SEC rivals, Neyland Stadium and Jordan Hare aren't guaranteed wins, Oregon State will win of their next two games. A lot of shit is going to happen these next 17 days.

    We're an incredibly flawed team but the game is at home and weird shit happens in rivalry games.

    As it stands, unless the team completely checks out(never rule this out), I'd bet it ends up something like the LSU game - closer than it should be for a half or 3Q and then our defense caves in on itself and we stop attempting forward passes.

    If Bama gets in over Texas, then there’s absolutely no point in playing a full season. Cut the risk of injuries and just play a 4 game season starting in late October since that’s the only thing that matters.
