This would of been the perfect year to have the playoffs.
Oregon would of at least shown up
This is embarrassing. What a silly cash grab.
Horrible game....Saban needs to reture so the rest of the teams can stand a chance
The only thing everyone can hope for is if he jumps back to the NFL.
The best coach in the best gig. He sold his soul, no question.
Still would have been bogus...as the obvious best/hottest team (Texas A&M) would have been excluded. Gotta go to at least 8 to do it right, and it would help if the SEC teams would play teams with a pulse out of conference.
Agree. 8 is the way to go
That way a two-loss team from a truly elite conference could get in

8 would be much better in my honest opinion....
I'll fourth it - 8 is definitely the way to go.
I am able to draw some satisfaction from two things last night: Notre Dame being humbled on national tv is always a treat, and ESPN's promotion of this as the game of the century was/is just laughable. They have spent a lot of money to foster this ridiculous set of poorly-matched football games. I hope they lost, and continue to lose, their ass on this nonsense.
Agree. Though, this is an Alabama thing, not an SEC thing. Purely dominant. Tex A&M proves future is w/ a dual-threat QB.
I like 8 .... but I also have a different plan ....
I think the champs of the major conferences like the SEC and ACC should get in even with 2 or 3 losses.
I wish there were like 6 autos and 2 at-large
The reason I say this is because if the big conferences had automatic entry, record wouldn't matter as much --- and thus we might actually see some good intersectional games for the first time in decades.
8 is the way to go, but I don't know if it wouldn't have been two SEC teams in the championship anyway. Let's say you took Alabama, Notre Dame, Kansas State, Oregon, Florida, Texas A&M, Florida State, and Oklahoma/Georgia. That's half of the field from the SEC!
Totally agree, I don't think you can put any other team in the SEC in Bama's class, yeah, A&M beat them and Georgia played them close but Bama is simply a machine.
