Those Of You Celebrating The Bama Loss: If This Was 2014, They Are In

I posted this on the More Sports Board too...

Those of you celebrating this, remember, next year is the 4 team playoff.

Bama's loss last night literally would guarantee them a spot in the final four.

That's right: Bama would have a shot to win the title again by simply finishing third in the SEC, all the while giving themselves the easiest schedule and still failing to win out, just as they did in 2011 and 2012.

Third year in a row Bama would lose a big November game, but would be rewarded due to brand name and the fact that their rivals played tougher schedules.

Auburn and Missouri would actually be in a position to LOSE OUT OF THE FINAL FOUR by having to play the extra game that Bama, once again, wasn't even good enough to qualify for despite setting themselves up with the easiest path to get there.

Let that sink in.....

CFB is about to become a joke of epic proportions.

I've said this since the inception.

We'll worry about that next year. Hopefully it will be corrected so that a team has to win its conference. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the fact that Bama is not in the running this time.

Slow your roll.

1. Fla St
2. tOSU
3. SECCG winner
4. Okla St if they win Bedlam

ETA: I still agree SECCG loser gets screwed in your scenario.

So your point is a 4 team playoff is worse for college football than the BCS system?

I think they need to change to 6 and put in 5 conference champs (SEC, Big 10, Big 12, PAC 12, ACC) and 1 at large. Top 2 get byes.

next year is a committee there is chance they are not in.

would a committee take a 1 loss non division champ bama over a 1 loss division champ of Oklahoma State. I would say no, its not a rank thing its a committee thing. They aren't promised a spot in the playoff at number 4.

Obviously Bama will have an easier time making it into the top 4 than the top 2. That goes for every other team too. And it might mean Bama stays dominant it'll always take two losses to knock them out. But that's the way it goes and I'll worry about that next year.

It could actually end up being worse, yes.

We are going to see the elite programs rewarded for mediocrity. That is my worry.

So it's not happening this year and a 3-peat (which should only be a one peat) is out of the question. I'll worry about next year...next year.

an 8 team playoff is about the minimum that should be done.

4 is like the worst of both worlds, 16 is a good all around number

there is no perfect system

We already know the answer to this.

True. There will always be controversy and hard feelings. Look at basketball. Every year the number 65 team is predictably bitching about not getting in the post season.

Actually, we don't. One of the scary things about the committee is that they are not all football people, and that one of their goals is assuredly to bring "fairness" to the playoff selection.

Only to see them rewarded again for playing a weak schedule and failing to win the West?

You would like to see that?

You must love punishment. LOL
