Default 2014 season bowl picture (no BCS)

Interesting read. If we're sitting at #8 this time next year we'll be looking at one of the top four bowls (Rose, Fiesta, Orange, Sugar) for sure. Committee will decide four playoff teams as well as the 8 teams in the 4 major bowls.

Sure hope we've proven the chicken curse does not exist after the last three years but the "lifelong" Gamecock in me immediately thought "Just out luck. Happens the first year after we lose a ton of NFL talent." Hope that negative nelly thought is not correct LOL.

Our fanbase has some serious issues! Still talking about some stupid curse. I've never seen so many fragile and mentally weak fans.Awful!

Wait, I thought the first round of the playoffs would be held at those bowls on a rotating basis.

So, for example, the Rose Bowl Champs will Play the Sugar Bowl champs for the national championship. Then the other bowls will rotate.

Edit: just looked it up. I'm right.

If we are in the top 8 we could be in the playoffs.

The biggest benefit I see next year is the fact that the SEC will no longer be limited to 2 teams in the BCS/playoff bowls.

That would be great if the playoffs were determined by a hard formula, like the current BCS system, but the playoff participants will be selected by a committee. There is absolutely no way a committee composed of Clemson's AD, West Virginia's AD, Condoleeza Rice, etc. will pick 3 SEC teams for a 4 team playoffs. It's not going to be about selecting the 4 best teams; it's going to be about politics and "fairness".

Now, I guess the SEC is not limited in terms of bowls. Honestly, I'm completely confused about how the bowls will work once the playoff starts.

Default Re: 2014 season bowl picture (no BCS)

I have SERIOUS doubts a committee next year would let us land in one of the major non-playoff bowls. I think this committee is an awful idea. What was wrong with the BCS formula? Why couldn't we just go to a playoff and use the BCS formula to decide the teams?

I GUARANTEE this committee will be all about the political correctness, give everybody a chance BS that we see all the time. NO WAY they'd give #8 Carolina a slot in one of the major bowls. I have ZERO doubt that Baylor, Michigan State, and Arizona State would get in before Carolina, because the committee wants to "spread the wealth" and Carolina would be the 4th SEC team.

Mark my words, this committee will be plagued by politics and is going to be no friend of the SEC.

Exactly right. As long as humans are involved, nothing is going to be perfect.

I am not holding my breath in anticipation that next year and following years will be without much controversy in the final results.

If they do not throw away preseason polls and not do a ranking until midseason and use strength of schedule as a major factor, this is just putting lipstick on a pig.

I saw that tweet. I don't think that necessarily means that's what they want, they were just pointing it out.

A 16 team playoff format is the only answer, and then they would find a way to ruin it.

But, you have to play the game as it is. Bama, UF and Aubie ain't complaining.
