    Re: BCS final four madness begins - I am confused

    The whole playoff idea was from the Boise's and other schools that pounded West Central New Mexico St. School For The Impaired, 85 to 0 and then whined because they couldn't play for the BCS Championship. Our great president and Congress even got involved as if they had nothing better to do.

    Whatever. All we can do is line 'em up and knock 'em down.

    Keep in mind that if Ohio State weren't on probation, it'd probably be Notre Dame vs OSU this season. We (Bama and SEC fans) would all be clamoring for the plus 1 playoff.

    Yep. We will just dominate the next system too!

    Brad Edwards actually tweeted that he didn't know if OH. State would even be able to edge out a one loss SEC team this year. However, I would expect the public outcry would be deafening if they were left out of the top two spot even with their weak schedule. So I agree that four spots will help us more than it will hurt us in the future.

    That is just stupid in my opinion. Why does Oregon (a team not playing in their championship game) get in above a team that lost in their championship game to either a number 2 or number 3 ranked team. This sounds like the same issue that people had against Bama getting into championship game last year after not winning SEC.

    I just see this whole final four being chosen by a committee as huge mistake. How do they sort it which SEC team goes where between UGA, Florida, and Bama?

    Why can we not have a system like the NFL?
    THat scenario is a little different. Last year Alabama did not play in the SECCG but was #2 nationally versus a team that was a conference champion ( Okie Lite) but didn't play in a championship game. they both had the same record. This year, The team that looses the championship game will have 2 losses vs Oregon with 1.

    As for the NFL question, that would make the conference champions play for the title and would make you Jim Delaney.

    however, our two losses would be to better opponents that Oregon's one, but I understand how the voters look at it.

    How does that make me Jim Delany? Delany does not want a playoff system, I am saying to make it more like the NFL where conference games matter in order to get to the playoffs.

    The SEC Championship game should be played in secrecy so that the winner is not divulged until after the top 4 playoff teams have been selected. Only allow team fans to attend and not the media and make the fans swear to keep it secret.

    I agree with Danielson - Ohio State has nothing to lose this year. They win a few games and then get 8-0 like the other teams but don't have the pressure Bama, Notre Dame, Oregon, K-State, and others had. Would they play the same with that pressure?

I just see less of a need for it after the top 4 teams being selected barring some odd circumstances. It just seems clear that playing the championship game going forward can only hurt us as we move closer to a playoff format. We beat each other up enough already during the regular season.
    UNLESS - you are in the SEC and 5th in the BCS and you need one of the other two to lose ----

    PLUS -- you can't decide at the last minute to cancel renting out the Georgia Dome at the last minute. It would cost MILLIONS of dollars with no revenues generate. Networks sell advertising -- and lots of money rides on the game.

    Plus I believe any conference that has more than 10 is required to as part of BCS. I assume that will carry over to playoff system.
