Yep. Tennessee made end up in better shape.


No, they lost control of their own destiny. What is wrong with yall?

UGA is essentially in regardless of the outcome of the SEC championship now. That would have been Tennessee had they won. On what planet is needing someone else to win better than that?

Better in the sense they get an extra week off. Hence the “may be better off”

That is way different than “they are in better shape today because they lost”

Similar to when Alabama didn’t win their division and got an extra week off

I can assure you no one at Tennessee thinks they are in any form of a better situation by losing that game.

Tennessee still has a hreat shot at back-dooring their way in, but if they won they would really be on cruise control. Three easy conference games and then worst case you're 12-1 with a split against a top 10 LSU team. Best case 13-0 and a no doubt #1 seed.

Nobody said that. You are literally arguing a point that nobody has made.

We are talking about what could hypothetically be said DOWN THE ROAD.

2 loss Utah doesn’t have a path imo.

I see what you’re saying but what would legitimately have to happen for them to be a top 4 team when the dust clears?

I think it would take the loser of OSU/Michigan having another loss along the way and Tennessee losing to Mizzou/South Carolina/Vandy on top of all you mentioned.

Losing this game is not beneficial for them regardless of maybe sneaking in while teams in front lose. Yea, maybe it works out for them, but they aren't in better shape as it sits. UGA could decide to rest everyone in Atlanta just to keep Tennessee out, and they couldn't do dick about it.

And who says taking a week off is better? It's not like there isn't already a long break between conference championships and the playoffs.

Yeah I agree with you. Now if Clemson were to lose again, I could see Utah sneaking in over Michigan, partially to avoid a playoff with two big ten and two SEC teams

No way Clemson is getting in. 1 loss Michigan and Tennessee will get in over them.

Plus UNC will beat them.

Caesars (it was formerly William Hill) was absolutely amazing when it started in Tennessee. Odds were fantastic and promotions were even better. It’s borderline unusable today. Moneyline odds are absolutely absurd. I basically only use it to hedge these days and even that is only on a few very specific types of bets like alternate baseball lines.

Bama’s odds are throwing away money. For them to make it, the following would have to happen




There are ways they get in, but they would need a few weird things to happen like the Pac 12 champs to have 3 losses or more, the ACC champ to have 2+ losses and the Big 12 champ to have 2+ losses.

Never say never when most of us were around for 2007

USC and that defense is not getting in. They lose to UCLA and likely to Notre Dame as well.

Ole miss at +8000 to win sec championship game. Pretty good value there. It’s down to 3 teams to win it UGA( heavy favorite obviously),LSU, or Ole Miss. worth a small bet to me

Oregon probably isn't winning out. TCU will lose.

Tennessee's schedule to end the season is very easy. I love their odds.
