Alabama players not happy about UGA being ranked ahead of Crimson Tide

    It's fun to imagine all the potential playoff scenarios. Say we lose to Auburn, but win the other two. Then, we beat LSU in the SEC championship. Assuming all the other top teams have won out, who goes? OSU and Clemson for sure. LSU I would imagine since they would only have one loss. Would we go as two loss conference champs over other one loss conference champs like Oregon or Utah? Either way it would be controversial. If Baylor wins out, I'd imagine they'd be the team to take that last spot. IMO it doesn't seem likely Bama will get in unless Clemson or Ohio State loses. However, it would be hilarious (although extremely unlikely of course) if LSU ended up losing 2 of their last 3 and Bama went to the SEC Championship. It might end up being clear who the top four are or it might be controversial. Either way, the playoff needs to be expanded. 8 teams would be perfect. No one would have much room to complain about not getting in if there's 8 spots.

    I'm sure that the bama players opinions will carry just as much weight as the opinions of our players on last years final rankings - absolutely none. After all, what do you expect them to think?

    The issue here is not Georgia. Because if we win out, we are in and Alabama is out. It is about the case when Alabama wins out and we can't, then Alabama is not guarantee a spot right now. If Alabama is ranked #4, the only team who are likely to jump Alabama would be UGA if we win out. It will be difficult for any other team to do so. But as it is currently ranked, Oregon or maybe even Oklahoma may have a chance if they win out.

    If Bama would have only beaten The Sisters of the Sick and Poor by another couple of touchdowns they would have jumped us on that strength of schedule thingy!
