    in order for Oklahoma to get to the title. I would love to see Bama vs OU. Offense of OU vs Bama D would be fun to watch. Still think Bama rolls them but it would be fun.

    Does Alabama drop out of top 4 if they lose?

    Looks like it’s Houston for the Clones!

    Virtual home game against A&M.

    Fitting end to the season.

    All of those 5star Bama receivers can't catch.

    The idea that Alabama should get in regardless of whether they win this game is a joke.

    But the national media that spends 99% of the year jerking off to the SEC will push the idea endlessly.

    Probably why they need to expand playoff games

    Maybe we're looking at this wrong - maybe we need Georgia to win something like 45-7 and Tua has a season-ending injury. Maybe that bumps Bama.

    It would be Auburn not A&M and give me that over playing the Cuse/Pitt in Florida

    Absolutely they should.

    But as long as the media gets what they want, we won't see the expansion.

    We'll get the expansion whenever we get a crazy year when the media favorite big 10 and SEC somehow end up shut out, even if its clear that's what the outcome should be.

    Northwestern winning wouldn’t hurt either.

    No Big 10, no Big 12, No Pac 12. A playoff with two SEC teams and effectively two ACC teams (since ND is tied to the hip with them). That will go over well with the rest of the Power 5.

    If Bama loses the SEC CCG they might not get in this year. the difference this year OU doesn't have a bad loss where OSU had the bad loss to Iowa last year. I think they run a big risk of leaving 3 conference champs out and put 2 SEC teams in for the stability of the playoffs for the future and the tv ratings. For ratings not only would you have 2 SEC teams in but a 3rd southeast team in Clemson.

    If we go to the 5 conference champions + 3 WC, I can make the case that Bama should get in as a wild card. Allowing them in the 4 team configuration when they don't even win the SEC is absurd.

    When you put it that way, having both Alabama & Georgia in could be the spark we need for change. Especially with powerful programs like OU and tOSU that win their conference and get left out (assumed).

    Doubt it. Georgia and Bama both made the playoff last year and Bama didn't even play in the SEC title game that year. If there was an outcry over that, I missed it.

    I'm just thrilled that they managed to create a system more corrupt than the BCS
