It will be interesting to see what happens if Ohio State Clemson and Oklahoma are all unbeaten and Georgia beats undefeated Bama or LSU in SEC Title game

It would be perfect. More chaos! What needs to happen to get to an 8 team playoff.

6 is ideal. Do it just like the NFL. Top two get BYEs

Georgia doesn't need any help to make the playoff. They totally control their destiny. They win out and they are in. Not saying it will happen but they don't need any help.


Completely disagree with this. If they barely beat an undefeated SEC West team that survived that gauntlet I think this loss would keep them out.

Man Fromm looked off today.

So just who would get in. Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Clemson (assuming they win out). That leaves only one loss teams. There is no way a one loss SEC team gets left out. Do you think the committe puts say Alabama in over Georgia after Georgia just beat them to win the SEC?

 

I would take a one loss Georgia to the bank at this point. What am I missing????

You’re missing the fact that Georgia lost at home to South Carolina.

Put another way:

Alabama barely losing to Georgia on a neutral field is better than Georgia losing at home to SC. I know it seems weird to take a team over a team that just beat them but Bama resume would be better.

The selection committee has stated for as long as they have been around that winning the conference and head to head are two major criteria they consider. We'll see how this goes down the road I guess.

Yea but they wouldn’t keep UGA out in that scenario.

You tend to have a game like that every year. You just have to overcome issues and figure out a way to win.

Clemson found a way vs UNC...Wisky couldnt today. Georgia couldn’t last week.
