Seriously, Bama could still get in the top4, if tcu gets blown out by 17 points or more..?

Keep hearing that TCU shouldn't be punished by losing in their conference championship. OK, but playing in a conference championship isn't integral to getting a spot in the playoff, right?

So, if they were to lose, the debate should really be is a TCU team at 11-1 better than a Bama team at 10-2???

I'm not qualified to say, but I think that should be where the debate begins and ends.

It's been amazing to watch the "you should have to win your conference" folks miraculously transmigrate into "but TCU should be in EVEN IF THEY LOSE their conference championship."

I don't expect Bama to make it, but even if they did and lost in the semis, it would be worth it to watch the collective heads of the CFB 'casuals' explode. :)
I am all about causing talking heads & pointy heads to explode. The clown show clowns will have meltdowns. The wannabe schools will have meltdowns. Chaos would be beautiful.

Why is Vegas not a metric for this committee? Why does Vegas not supplant that committee? Publish the odds on a match up with Bama on all the teams ahead of them and we are favored in most, if not all of them. I thought the idea was to get the best 4 teams.
Absolutely! Vegas seems not to think much of either USC or TCU

1000x this! I could care less what those talking heads have to say. Herbie said last week that Bama should be ranked above tOSU. Why does he feel different this week? Fear? Seems now that it means something his tune has changed. What a goober
Credibility should matter again. Not sure when or even if, but it should. Auburn and Hugh Freeze have none. It’s disgusting, I had just turned on the show. And then turned it right back off.

Shouldn’t quality of losses be just as important as quality of wins? If TCU gets “USCed” and losses by +14, they do not deserve a playoff spot, period.

But this still makes me mad that we were so close. A simple adjustment by the defense in either game, and this is a non issue.
Or if Bryce had been 100%.

And that is far from a guaranteed win for us. In fact, I'd say there's a good chance we lose with all of the portal/likely opt-out activity that's coming.

At this point, I'd be satisfied if we just simply go out, win the sugar bowl decisively, end the season on a positive note, and begin the arduous process of fixing what's wrong, on every level, prior to Spring practice and a new season...
FIFY ;)

I predict that the logic the haters will use to keep Bama out if TCU loses is "USC and TCU both lost rematches in their conference title games."

I really don't see us getting into the playoff, and while I'd be excited if we get in, I also worry that that would delay the changes we all agree need to be made in our program.

I'm proud of a 10-2 season with win #10 coming against Auburn and us going to a good Bowl Game. No Championship game for us and I'll bet when the teams are announced, the Aubs are gonna roll Toomer's Corner and their Christmas trees.
