College Football Final Four

#3
Conference Championship Winner is just Another Win.

The Fact that it's a Conference Championship Game doesn't give it More Strength.

It's all about Strength of Opponent/Schedule.

If LSU, Clemson, Ohio St. run the table, they are in.

IF Alabama and Oklahoma both end up with 1 Loss, You have Alabama losing to LSU, and Oklahoma losing to Kansas St.

You tell me who gets in.

I'll Argue Alabama All Day.

If the committee's task is to select the top four teams, I sense Alabama will make the Final Four.

Alabama's one loss will be viewed as a "good loss," if there is such a thing.

No argument with that myself. Alabama folk will lose their minds and try to spin but I don’t see it happening for them under this scenario.
Their only possible argument would be Georgia getting in over them.

Both 1 Loss Teams.

Georgia Loss at Home to South Carolina.

Alabama Loss at Home to LSU.

Then it would come down to Strength of Schedule.

But I think a Georgia Win in the SEC Championship Game over LSU would put them Over the Top.

I'll be alone here in saying: Oregon

If Georgia wins out - they are in and #4. But I don't think that happens.

Bama not winning the SEC will hurt them and if Oregon wins out I think they get the last spot

Anything can happen, but I don't see Georgia beating LSU in the SEC Championship Game either, if they faced each other.

If that's the case, then you have Undefeated LSU, Ohio St, and Clemson.

And Probably a Handful of 1 Loss Teams, Alabama, Oregon/ Utah Winner, and Oklahoma all Lobbying for that #4 Spot.

It be Politics, the Eye Test, Crowd Following, Strength of Schedule, Margin of Victories, Opponents W-L Records, and a few other things thrown in.

FOURTH PLACE WILL BE A " PHOTO FINISH".

The Committee Likes to Pretend that they do not see that Stuff.

The Top 4 have a lot of NFL Draft Picks on their Roster.

Here is 1 other thing to keep in mind

IF: LSU, Ohio State, Clemson all run the table they will finish 1-3 in that order. I don't think anyone would argue this

As for #4: IF the Committee puts Bama #4 that is very unfair to LSU who now has to beat Bama. Again. If I am on the Committee I think long and hard about it

BUT.................since this is also about Ratings - would Bama or Oregon draw more eyeballs to the set? The easy way to go is Bama but I'm not so sure. You will get the SEC viewers if LSU i s in the game but I actually think you get more interest and eyeballs if Oregon gets in because now you open up the Pac-12 market to the game while a game between N*SEC*AA teams doesn't bring as many

I think Alabama is toast, assuming your scenario plays out. No SEC Title game in their future for "eyeballs."

Much football left also despite the look.

Oregon-Utah winner, Georgia, Minnesota and Oklahoma have better shots in my eyes.

They need 8 teams. Prairie View A&M made the Big Dance last year. The strongest 2 will always make it there anyway.

Oklahoma (40-1) seems like a potential value play and a team who could be and wouldn't be scared of LSU-OSU-CLEM and could maybe play in a shootout.

100% agree. All "Power 5 Conf Champs" a "Group of 5" school and 2 Wild Cards

DONE!

See how easy that was! And I do think eventually we will get that and this season Alabama would get a WC spot (assuming they win out) and almost certainly Oklahoma, too. And no one would really argue that although if Penn State wins out, knowing they would beat THE Ohio State they would get in over Oklahoma

About the worst possible scenario is Georgia beating LSU in the title game as long as they beat Auburn. All hell will break loose.
Actually - no it won't. If that happens UGA joins the Top 3 right now and really few can say that would be bad

IF that happens I think the T4 would be: Ohio State (assuming they win out), Clemson, LSU (although if they out LSU ahead of Clemson I'd be OK with it and it really makes no difference who is #2 and who is #3) and UGA #4

Don't believe Alabama is Toast.

Undefeated LSU, Ohio St, Clemson would get in.

If Alabama Runs the Table, that gives them 1 Loss, and it would be to the #1 Ranked Team in the Country.

If 1 Loss Oregon goes up against 1 Loss Utah, the Winner of that Game will have 1 Loss.

Then put that Resume up Against Alabama's, and decipher who has the Better Argument.

I was referring to Georgia being in if they beat LSU and Bama would be fucked.

So many scenarios still. What if Penn State or Michigan pull a rabbit out of their ass and beat Ohio State? Does Ohio State even get in? Lol


Correct.

A lot of Football still left to be played.

But still an interesting Thread Discussion.

Right. If Georgia were to play LSU in the SEC Championship Game and Win, then Alabama would be Toast.
