What if LSU is the SEC Champion with 2 losses?
Cf, Penn State in 2016 and OSU last year. Not that LSU can win the conference with two losses, since a.second loss in Conference makes their path to the championship game much harder, but a two loss Gods Conference Champ would be sidelined in favor of a one loss Alabama. The Committee in its final rankings do not see 1 and 2 loss teams as having similar resumes. And since conference champions, like head to head, only get separate consideration when the resumes are similar, the Committee has consistently kept a two loss champion out in favor of a strong one loss team on the basis of the over all resumes.

Maybe, Maybe not.

For instance Bama could lose
Sorry, you lost me right there.
And everybody else.

Quiet twit.

It occurs to me that there is a very real chance the playoff teams will be Alabama, ClemSIN, Our Lad.of the Perpetual Tie, and Meatchicken, which is my definition of Hell. Nothing to root for.but the sweet oblivion of death.

Well you could root for LSU to knock off Bama this week-end, and then run the SEC table.

Then pray to Our Lady of Big Time Football (a position formerly held by Condi Rice) doesn't seed Saban's hordes #4

Actually, all four losing would be enough. Though Alabama would probably have to lose twice.

On the other hand I would find that lineup very appealing.
