    Georgia will lose to LSU in the SEC title game.
    If Utah and Oregon win out, then the winner of the PAC will likely jump Alabama to the #4 spot.

    If Ohio State and Clemson remain 2 and 3, that will be an awesome 1st round playoff game.

    I have a hard time seeing the committee leave Bama out if their only loss ends up being a 5 point loss to LSU...especially if Oregon is who ends up winning the PAC12.

    Could be wrong but I think the committee's response for why they left the Ducks out in favor of Bama will end up being the results against Auburn for both teams...even though the Oregon loss would have been all the way back in September.

    Bama will get the Kenyon Martin treatment should they be in consideration at the end.

    Alabama plays Western Carolina this week while PAC schools play better teams, this is the week they may pass Alabama.

    Truthfully without Tua, they aren't a top 5 team. They need Tua and the offense to offset season long defensive deficiencies.

    The voters are doing their best to force feed the country two sec teams.

    What voters? You mean the Committee?

    FWIW UGA will be eliminated when they play LSU.

    Alabama, with Tua, is a top 5 team. If you don't think they were then I would question either your understanding of football or you're being completely biased. Without him, they probably are not.

    It's going to be Osu, Clemson, LSU and a 1 loss team not named Alabama.

    I recently said how remarkable it is that Clemson's schedule is as weak as it is. They will go into the playoffs without playing a singular top 25 team (in the Committee poll). I suppose Texas A&M (5th or 6th best SEC team) or Virginia will end up being their best win?

    Yes committee. They will keep Bama at 5 even with their weak ending schedule, so if Georgia upsets LSU, so they can force feed two SEC in the playoffs.

    I would have Ohio State #1. LSU has had the more impressive wins, but I am still questioning their defense. Seems like every game they are in a shoot-out. History shows that will not win you a title. OSU's margin of victory average is on a historic pace. The schedule picks up from here, so if they are remotely in the same vicinity of their margin of victory these next few games, it will validate it.

    It doesn't matter where Alabama is if UGA beats LSU. Without Clemson or Ohio State choking or Oregon losing again, Alabama has no shot.

    If everyone wins out and UGA beats LSU in the SEC title game...who would you put in the playoffs?

    Exactly why I think they’ll get left out. Unless they have a Cardale Jones esque 59-0 beatdown of Auburn in the Iron Bowl, Bama wont be a serious contender for the 4 spot at the end.
