Since Playoff is likely to expand to 12 teams does LSU need to beef up its non-conference?
LSU's future schedule

2021: @ucla
2022:Florida state (Nola)
2023:Florida state (orlando)
2024:UCLA
2025:@clemson
2026:Clemson
2027:@oklahoma
2028:Oklahoma
2029: Arizona state
2030: @arizona state
2031:@utah
2032:utah

If you schedule some one more non conference game you might be able to lose 3 regular season games and still get in the expanded playoff.


ETA: for those calling me an idiot I guess saban and smart are idiots as well.

This is Alabama future non conference schedule:


2021: Miami
2022: Texas
2023: Texas and USF
2024: USF and Wisconsin
2025: Florida State and Wisconsin
2026: West Virginia and Florida state
2027: West Virginia and OHio st
2028: Ohio st and OKlahoma st
2029: Oklahoma st and ND
2030: GT and ND
2031: Arizona and OU
2032: Arizona and OU
2033: VT and Boston College

This is UGA future non conference schedule

2021: Clemson
2022: Oregon
2023: OU
2024: Clemson
2025: UCLA
2026: UCLA and Louisville
2027: Florida st and Louisville
2028: Texas and FSU
2029: Texas and Clemson
2030: Clemson and Ohio St
2031: Ohio st and Oklahoma

Why would we want to make it harder to finish in the top 12
?

If anything we should cancel some of those games

I don’t think anyone in their right mind keeps a one loss and even possibly a 2 loss LSU out of a 12 team playoff

If anything it needs to cancel every hard non con game it has scheduled. We're a playoff lock with 10 wins every year.

ETA: They need to mandate that At Large bids can only go to teams who schedule 2+ Power 5 OOC games.

That seems like the opposite logic for an SEC team.

No if anything we probably should water it down as the teams you’re going to be compared to for those last spots are almost certainly either other SEC teams already on your schedule or a 11-1/10-2 PAC-12 or Big-12 team with very few quality opponents.

Just like in basketball and baseball I assume the strength of schedule will become a bigger factor. That is a three loss team who played a very tough schedule might be deemed more deserving of a spot than a 1 or 2 loss team that played a shitty non-conf schedule.

That said, I think 12 teams is too many. 6 would have been fine with a max of 8. That amount would still allow the regular season to be very important, but also give more teams a chance to bounce back from an early loss. It keeps more fans interested later in the season.

We need to reschedule Texas so they can come to Baton Rouge for their well deserved whipping.

Could be a Howard vs. Manning game in 2025.

Strength of schedule is already a big factor. Going from four teams to twelve makes it easier to get in, not harder.

This thread makes no sense.

I think any "upper" tier 2-loss SEC team (LSU, Bama, Auburn, Florida, UGA, aTM makes a 12-team playoff. The SEC will have 4 or 5 unless they cap it - regularly.

Easily. LSU made it into the top 2 with two losses.

ETA: in the safe space/equity world we live in now there will be a couple “set aside” spots for the UCFs & Boises of the world, but 10 real teams is still a large expansion.

I’m shocked at the number of people that want to keep the playoff number low which is exactly the wrong way to add significance to the regular season. Why do you think every other league (nfl, nba, college baseball, college basketball, etc) has significantly more playoff participants. 12 will probably still be too low.

What happens when you have perennial one or two loss Bama, Auburn, USC, Texas, Texas A&M, etc etc constantly bobbing around one of those at-large spots…?

I dont think you need to do anything with non-conference. However, I think it would be an improvement if they went to a 9 game schedule.

Not a fan.

The distance between a no 4 team and a no 12 team is vast. You simply aren’t going to see a no 12 Cinderella run through a bracket busting natty run. Not in football.

Meanwhile, this is going to start a slide towards eliminating conference championship games (or at least towards minimizing them).
