Alabama and Georgia have only played each other four times since 2008. And frankly, I'd rather see Bama play a team I think can conceivably beat them in the semifinals, even while acknowledging that UGA has no right to be in the playoff at this point. But whatever.
Oklahoma? The Oklahoma Sooners? You think they have a better chance than Georgia, or Clemson? Alabama might score 100 on them, without breaking a sweat.I despise ou sucks with every fiber of my being but they have the best shot at beating Alabama out of any possible opponent imo.
Clemson - ND might be sneaky good.
They almost beat Georgia last year. I like seeing non conference! The debate all year is always how these big 12 offenses would fare in the SEC and vice versa and if the pace of the big 10 holds up etc etc. I want to see it in the playoffs. The SEC has their own championship to determine who the best isSo, you like watching non-competitive football games?
He also said UM and OSU were the best teams in the nation back in 2006 and needed a rematch in the championship.Kirk Herbstreit says UGA should actually be moved up to 3rd after that game. I said it last week. Win or lose there is an argument that both SEC championship game teams deserve to be in the CFP. I don't see much difference between Georgia, Oklahoma, and Ohio State. UGA played the tougher schedule.
I think it's set with OU as the 4th team. It will be interesting to see some of the early SEC bowl games and see how UF and UK perform to get an idea on the strength of the West.Yeah that wasn't one of his greatest hot takes. But don't you see an avenue where Georgia can still be considered as the 4th team?
This is where I'm at. If they're interested in taking the 4 best teams I still think Georgia is one of them. Do I think the committee will see it this way? No I don't.If we’re talking about best teams and not how the committee is going to rank them. I slot them based on who IMO would be favored if they were playing other teams, here’s how I’d rank it.
Tier 1: Bama
Tier 2: Clemson and Georgia
Tier 3: ND, OU, OSU, UCF
This is what I think would happen if these teams played a team up or down a tier. For instance a Clemson v Georgia game would be a pick em and they’d be favored against everyone but Bama.
