this looks about right…not rewarding Wisconsin for playing all creampuffs is the strongest statement the commitee made

I think not rewarding Alabama for playing all cream puffs is even stronger. On the other hand, LSU is about to get murdered by pissed off Bama

I don’t have a problem with this at all. If they feel Georgia is the best team, so be it. Bama & Georgia still have to play Auburn plus Georgia has to beat Tech as well. Hopefully both teams will remain undefeated. I think Wisconsin is on cruise control but has not really been challenged yet, The U is just waiting to lose by the way they play but they still have Va.Tech & ND to prove themselves. As for Bama playing ALL creampuffs, PLEASE! If that was the case then Bama would’ve been placed down there with The U & Wisconsin.I just think Bama is a well oiled machine that is just slicing through its schedule, as is Georgia, two top SEC teams that will meet probably in ATL.

“…two top SEC teams that will meet probably in ATL.”

They might meet in Atlanta twice. Once in the SEC title game and then again in the national title game.
