SEC Champs or Berth in Playoff?
 
If you HAD to pick one, which would it be? (In this hypothetical scenario, the SEC champ doesn't get a berth).

No way this is a scenario. Maybe the champ gets in and another team from the SEC as well. I still want to win the SEC but if we are in the playoffs the chance at the ultimate goal is alive!

Agree. The loser won't get a bid even if it's a first loss. There are 5 power conferences going after 4 spots. All 4 will go to conference champs this year.

Right now I just want to beat the Aggies but like the other guys said...I don't see how that is a possibility to not win the conference and get in the playoff unless we are undefeated and lose to another undefeated Sec team in the championship game in overtime or something

1 game at a time, but the SEC Champ will likely be the guy in the playoffs for a while. If they allowed 2 SEC Teams early in the 4 team playoff era a lot would write it off so many SEC haters out there but we easily have 3-4 of the top teams in the Nation in our own conference these days.

A playoff berth is not a championship. Give me the hardware!!!

SEC championship for sure.

Don't think it's a choice. National Championship is the TOP. Don't see SEC champ not getting a bid.

Re: SEC Champs or Berth in Playoff?
 
Agreed I want the SEC more and with that will come a playoff bid.

What an odd question.

Here's a better question in regards to 2014. Maybe I'll make another poll.

Would you rather not make the playoffs but WIN one of the other four bowls (Cotton, Fiesta, Orange, or Peach), or make the playoffs and lose in the round of four?

A chance to win the National Title means a lot more, as much as winning the SEC is important that national title is the ultimate prize. It would be possible for the SEC to get two teams in the playoffs if 12-0 #1 Bama wins the SEC against then 12-0 #2 USC, Bama would get the #1 seed and if the game was close enough USC would drop to #4 securing a spot. A 12-1 non SEC Champion USC is still better than a 1 loss champion from the B1G or ACC.

While I agree I just think the selection committee will shy away from being called SEC homers for a while.

We can go ahead and pencil FSU in now because the only semi decent team they will play is Florida and 1 loss and an ACC Champ is in. (complete garbage though)

It is possible. Look at 2010. If we had beat auburn we would have been SEC champs but not in the top 4.

No contest, definitely take the guaranteed SEC title.

almost certainly not a scenario

Its stuff like that is why I think the BCS should have run the playoff, the human element is limited, I just don't place any confidence into this selection committee.

Re: SEC Champs or Berth in Playoff?
 
One game at a time. You play the SEC game before the playoff teams are selected. Take advantage of the situation in hand - win the game you have. Whatever will happen as a result.... happens.

Re: SEC Champs or Berth in Playoff?
 
Besides, pretty sure if you win the SEC your going to go to the playoff. OP didn't think this one through.
