...we need to send the the freaking national guard. Look, I get it, Bama is good. Maybe they are the 2nd best team in the country. Heck, maybe they beat LSU 4 out of 5 times. Who freaking cares? In the end, they will be sitting at home getting a virtual bye while LSU has to put their playoff berth on the line an extra game. The whole thing is a freaking travesty. To me the fix for this is simple: Eliminate divisions within conferences. Figure out who the two best teams in each conference are and put them both in the CGs without regard for the divisions we have now. The divisions were put in place by the SEC during the first season of championship game play in order to generate a compelling title matchup. Because there was no CFB playoff, it didn't really matter if the 2nd best team was in the game or not as long as the best team in the conference was playing, it still worked. Not anymore. And lets face it, playing Vandy, Kentucky, SCar, and Mizzou every year is stupid. We should have 2 SEC rivals such as UGA and LSU to play every season, and then round-robin the rest of the conference so we don't go 5 years or more between matchups with west teams. If my math is correct, you would play the non rivals 2 out of every three years, so there would never be more than a year off from playing any one team in the conference. In any event, we can all see what's going to happen AGAIN. Bama is going to sit out the SECCG and waltz into the playoff like they do, and at least have a decent shot at winning the whole thing again after failing to win their division much less conference. FREAKING STUPID!
