re: New playoff format should benefit LSU greatly...


U guy's just don't get it. It will still be politics, & the teams that plays the pussy schedules every year like the gumps will always be in the top. It doubt it it will be much improvement over what we have now! The board members in the NCAA love to suck them some Saban's balls!!!

I just don't understand why they couldn't keep the BCS system to figure out the 4 team playoff.

According to everything I've seen about the criteria for this playoff, the 4 teams in this years playoff would have been Auburn, FSU, Michigan State, and Baylor. A non-conference winner would would have to have a better record and a significantly stronger SOS than some conference winners. Rarely will that likely happen. This system favors LSU if LSU wins the SEC. To think otherwise is not just naive, but head-in-the-sand stupid.

I do suppose it favors LSU--and all schools for that matter--if they win their conference with 2 losses.

I don't think it will at all. It sets up another case of 2011 on a regular occurrence. A team like LSU and Bama in 2011 would have been #1 and #4 seeds. LSU wouldn't have even made the championship game.
In 2008 and 2009 bama and UF would have had to replay each other.
Or this season Auburn would have been a #2 seed and Bama would have been a #3. It's not fair to the sec champion for them to have to replay the second best team in their conference.
I don't see the problem with the bcs. It worked every year but 2004. There is a playoff now. It's called winning your conference.

Anyone who think the SEC will get two teams in every year or most years is one word


Delusional


And on the RARE occasion that it might happen, they'll be matched up in the semifinal round, never to meet in the championship game


Period

If another SEC school is in the top 3 and we are #4, they're going to let #5 in...

Such a silly response from you Carl.

Not sure where you got your info, but it's wrong.

Top 4 this year would have been FSU, Auburn, Bama, and Stanford. Good lord dude, your picks aren't even close to being accurate.

Did you just pick conference winners? lol

Educate yourself on the new system, and then get back...

No, they're going to go by the top 4 regardless of conference affiliation.

If 3 SEC teams are in the that final 4, all get in.

There are no parameters to hurdle.

I think for the Big Ten and ACC should have to schedule top 25 teams in non conference to be mentioned with the SEC. This year should be, Bama, Auburn, FS, and the next best team. If a team in the SEC dominates all year and loses to the champion away by 3 or in overtime SEC should get the nod everytime. Until another conference can consistantly hang with the SEC? But then again, bama made if close by playing such an easy OOC schedule. If I were a team not in the SEC, I wouldn't ever schedule weak OOC teams. Might play weaker bcs schools like Tenn at the moment or Northwestern or Cinnci....... Not weak teams but it would give em more of an argument!

It depends on the rest of the field. You could have made a case to have 2 sec teams in the playoffs almost any year. Def in 2011 and in 2013. The secc and bama would have been in the top 4 both years.

Well it seems logical that it'd be easier for LSU to be in the top 4 than the top 2.

Eliminate the cross conference play. Eliminate the cupcake games out of conference.

Shorten the schedule for playoff purposes.

Let the conference champs proceed to the playoffs (4 top)... Let the runner up to each conference (4) and any smaller school with a beaut of a record come into play (top 2 of them) play a tougher play off schedule (like a wild card NFL)... OR #3 with 2 loss and SOS...... These two teams would be wild card.
That is a 10 team playoff.
WEEK ONE:
Have top seed play the runner up to another conference (top 8) and have the small independent play and eliminate each other.
This leaves 5 teams...
WEEK TWO:
Let the top two teams after that elimination draw a bye week while the other 4 winners play again.
WEEK THREE:
Top four teams (two who were ranked highest and the two that survived the above bracket)

That leaves 2 teams .... They could very possibly (even probably) be both from the SEC...

But THAT is a playoff system. That gives a team the chance to EARN their way...

OK. Somebody pay me the big bucks and put me in charge.

1. The Playoff Committee will NOT be more favorable to the "best" team versus conference champions. This is being done, in part, to get MORE non-SEC teams in the running. We will rue the day when we abandoned the BCS polling to determine seeds.

2. If the playoff system was in effect this year, Alabama (aka Mulligan University) would be getting a second chance to beat Auburn in one semifinal. Just want we all want...more Alabama.

I don't really have a beef with BCS either honestly. It's worked every year except when there were more than two deserving teams, and that was only 2004. To me it's worked as well as NFL playoffs where a 7-loss team wins the Super Bowl after a blowout loss in Dec.
