They will NEVER allow 2 SEC teams in a 4 team playoff. NEVER.

Well its a bunch of guys strategically picking teams based on reactions and how good they play. They unfair thing about it for the SEC is they probably won't let Bama in unless they are #1. They'd actually probably put in 2 ok teams like Auburn and SC from the SEC. It seems right to have about 2 SEC teams, but not 2 completely dominant ones.

They'd probably have the 2 SEC teams play each other in the semi-final

#1 Florida State (undefeated ACC Champs)
#2 Oklahoma (undefeated Big 12 Champs)
#3 South Carolina (1 loss SEC Champs)
#4 Oregon (1 loss Pac 12 Champs)

#4 Oregon defeats #1 Florida St in a shootout.
#3 South Carolina defeats #2 Oklahoma in a classic gamecocks victory.

#3 South Carolina defeats #4 Oregon for the National Championship.

Sooo.. if Auburn and SC were top 4, they would have to be #1 and #4 before the SECCG just in hopes that the #1 lost and they switched places. It would be impossible to have two sec teams from separate divisions. The only way two sec teams went would be like the LSU v. Bama rematch a few years ago. They'd have to be in the same division.

but my top 4 would be...

FSU
Oklahoma
Alabama
Michigan State

FSU v. OU FSU wins
Bama v. MSU Bama wins

FSU v. Bama Bama wins

I don't see any scenario with mich st and ohio st finish the season in the top 4. big 10 not that strong.

I agree that in year 1 of the playoff there will not be 2 teams from the same conference. whether deserved or not, it will just start everything off wrong in the eyes of the nation. This will now be as much about a popularity contest as ever....

Remember that the top 4 isn't based on rankings. A selection committee picks the top 4. They don't have to pcik teams ranked #1 through #4.

This time you have human manipulation to deal with not to mention you got members of the committee who are drawing paychecks from Power Conference Universities, not saying any names like that corrupt school in the upstate.

So you're saying they would have put Ohio State or Baylor in the playoff last year over Alabama?

If so, you're wrong. 2 SEC teams would have made the playoffs last year.

Do you think they would have put Kansas State in the playoff in 2012 over 11-1 Florida?

Maybe, but K-State lost more recently than UF. SEC would have most likely gotten 2 teams in 2012.

In 2011, Boise State was the only team with one loss or less not included in the playoff. If you think they would have put Boise in instead of 11-1 Alabama, you're wrong.

SEC would have had 2 teams in 2011.

if they don't and they deserve it, SEC will drop out of the bullshit.....the 4 team playoff rules were specifically written to allow 2 teams from the same conference.
