If this rule weren't in place, then the SEC would have 10 teams in BCS bowl games every year.
That's what the playoffs for my man. Rest of the country
because two SEC teams played for it last year, they'll be getting a lot more of that with the playoffs.
ETA: Texas A&M upsetting Alabama was the death stab to our BCS dreams. Alabama would be on their way to the NCG, A&M wouldn't be a factor with three losses, UGA would be relegated to a lower bowl after the loss to Bama in the SECCG, and Florida should lose to FSU. We would only have to deal with LSU (which would still be difficult because they beat us and would bring more fans to the Sugar).
We had like a 15% chance before Bama lost. Now we have no shot.
Because of Bama losing, every SEC team is knocked down a bowl slot. That does not bode well for our opponents.
