Imagine a scenario, easily could happen, where Auburn doesn't beat Bama and the SECCG is dwags v gumps. 1 vs 2. Suppose the loser of the SECCG only falls to 4 in the rankings. The very next game would be a rematch. Depending on the SEC schedule, it could possibly be the 3rd time the two teams have played in a single season. The real fly in the ointment with this whole thing is that the obvious best team in the land wasn't playing in a championship game. So basically they had a bye week since none of the other possible suitors to the 4th spot would qualify for the playoff according to the opinions of many. That is just a bogus setup. If you want a real playoff, IMO the best way to do it is to get rid of the conference championship games and replace them with the first round of an 8 team playoff. Whoa whoa whoa you say! There's too much money at stake, they'll never go for it. Well I think there would be a hell of a lot of money generated by an extra round of playoffs so the answer is to make sure that money gets to the people who could say no. For years we determined the conference champions without divisions and playoffs. I think it would be better to have more of a round robin SEC schedule than playing only the east or west every year with a couple of crossover games. There would never be a year when a weak-ass team from one division catches lightning in a bottle in the CG and wins the conference. The the 5 highest ranked conference champs and 3 wild cards make up the first round of the playoff. No more than 2 teams per conference. This year the final regular season top 10 was 1 Clemson 2 Auburn 3 Ok 4 Wisky 5 Bama 6 Dwags 7 Miami 8 Ohio St 9 Penn St 10 USC I'd get rid of Dwags and Pedos since they are 3rd best in their conference, and seed the remaining 8 teams Clemson v USC Barn v OSU OK v Miami Wisky v Bama As for UCF I would also put a note that any conference champ in the top ten gets in before a second place team from another conference, which they didn't do. But it does open the door for the occasional good team like Boise St or TCU to crash the party. I would much rather watch those four games than what the B12 put together this year and damn sure before the meaningless Pac12 game. Heck the SECCG was pretty much meaningless with the best team in the country sitting at home watching.
