Some of the comments on an Alabama forum
I literally SMH every time one of these idiots says “you have to win your conference to make the playoffs” - as if that means the second best team in the country will always be some conference champion. Nobody believes OSU is better than Bama outside of Columbus, yet people keep repeating that mantra.
So if a conference champ had 4 losses, they would be in simply for winning their conference. I thought a playoff was about having the best teams in.
Every few years people will argue about expanding the playoff format. It becomes a slippery slop. 4 teams, period. End of story.
To me that doesnt matter if theyre second best. The fact that they won when it counted is what should be upheld. Not “oh my roster is better and theres more money thrown with us in the playoff therefore we are supposed to be in the playoff” Entitlement at its finest
