FTR: There will NEVER be two teams from the same conference selected for a 4 team playoff.
If a potential BAMA-Georgia SEC title game goes 10 OT's, it won't matter.
When they go to 8 teams down the road, yes it will happen, with the stipulation that same conf-teams will not meet until the final

For a guy who swore over E.E.Gordon's dead body there would never be a playoff system, JimBoNut sure has become a big fan of the system.

The only lock I see, besides the one on JB's moped, is that four teams will be selected in December.

Put away your cupcakes and let the upset chaos begin!


I respectfully disagree DJ my friend.


Although highly unlikely I could envision a few scenarios at this juncture.


First of course Bama and Georgia must make it unscathed to the SEC Championship game. And it needs to be at least competitive in the outcome. If Bama loses a close game then my scenarios become all  the stronger I think.


MSU loses somehow to N'Wstrn and second PSU beats OSU but loses to MSU but MSU then loses to OSU. PSU plays a one loss Wisconsin(as they lose to OSU) team in the BIG CG and wins.


TCU loses to Iowa State and TCU beats Oklahoma but also loses to Texas. Okie St loses to Iowa St or W. Va.


Miami loses to Va Tech and ND. Va Tech loses to Ga Tech. Clemson loses to FSU or South Carolina. And NC State loses to ND.


Washington loses another game as does Washington State.


Finally ND loses their last game to Stanford.



At this point their is only one undefeated team in the nation and all of the conference champions have two losses, and, even wilder, for shits and giggles, let's say Georgia beat Bama in the SEC CG. And there is only one 1 loss team in the nation SEC runnerup Alabama. What goober of the voting committee is going to leave Alabama out?

At that juncture will we see both Bama and Georgia go to the Football Four they will most certainly be the #1 and # 2 seeds and setting up a possible rematch of the SEC CG game in which Bama could beat Georgia and end up like they did when they wrested the title away from LSU for the 2011 season.


Neat.

Ohio State and Wisconsin do not play.
Regardless, Penn State, under the above scenario, would be a one loss Conference Champion.
And your prediction of chaos strangely ignores that possibility afflicting the SEC.

That said, the SEC doesn’t need chaos everywhere else to have a good chance at two teams.
If the current punditry knows what it is talking about, that is.

Miami, okla

Excellent observation bro. 
Well, there are other teams that can win out and make it. An MSU team with wins over tOSU, tPSU, amd tWisconsin, with only a loss to Our Lady of the Perpetual Tie, for imstance. But the punditry discounts fhat possibility for reasons even I do not need explained .

I will go further: an unbeaten Alabama losing in the God's Conference Championship game to an unbeaten Georgia ensures two GC teams in the playoffs, unless there are three other unbeatens.

I respectfully accept your disagreement. If we agree on everything, your friend RisqueNut will go into one of his fits.

The Conferences Champinships are, IMO, a virtual first round to the three game playoff.  The Big 12 learned this lesson the hard way and has re-instituted their play-in game.  ND is the fly in the ointment, but they will again find a way to fail.  (although, Kelley has finally learned his lesson that he had no business calling plays and his new DC seems to understand the basic concepts of defense).

The selections committee does not want to leave two powerball conferences out of the final-four picture, let only three, if two from one conference were to be selected with ND.

Until proven wrong I stand with no two from ANY one  conference, EVER!

Yes if there are no other unbeatens. And if Georgia beats Bama and Notre Dame wins out there will only be one other conference champion team in the Football Four. Now wouldn't that be a hoot.
