You really think Oregon jumps us with that loss to ASU?
And I feel like Georgia will stay ahead of us, but I do think it is a legitimate questions to ask if we jump them. They have the more impressive wins, but they also have much worse losses than us. Even if they had kept it a 2 possession game, I'd say we have no chance. But I do think we have a shot with them just getting absolutely dominated like that, along with factoring in a loss at home to a below 500 team.
No. But I think the puppies stay ahead of us.
Dude, LSU hung almost half a hundred on us and smacked us by 2 TDS. I love our gators more than anything but lets be real.
Agree. No way Georgia is ranked under us.
UGA's LSU loss is still far worse than ours. Yes, we lost by 2 TD's, but with 5 minutes left it was a one possession game that we were still very much in. LSU no doubt deserved the win against us, but it isn't at all comparable to what we saw them do to Georgia today.
I think we may get the Sugar Bowl bid regardless of the committee rankings. Here’s a link to the selection process: https://collegefootballplayoff.com/documents/2019/8/20/CFP_Selection_Committee_Protocol.pdf
Basically, if the SEC champ goes to the playoff; it’s the Sugar Bowl, not the selection committee that selects the replacement. And it isn’t tied to the rankings. I don’t think the Sugar Bowl wants an unenthusiastic Georgia fan base and the team that got pounded by Texas last year, when they could take us. We would travel and be excited to be there and in all likelihood throttle Baylor.
Apparently, from what I remember, the conferences have made arrangements with the NY6 bowls regarding their tie-in spots. The SEC and the Sugar bowl have agreed that the highest ranked SEC team not in the playoffs goes, but, for example, the Big XII sends the loser of the Big XII championship to the Sugar Bowl, regardless of whether or not they're the highest-ranked non-playoff Big XII team. I'll try to find sources for this at some point, but no promises. So you can take this with a grain of salt for now.
Did everyone forget we lost AT LSU with still a relatively new starting QB??
All you have to do is read the selection manual. It states under Section 10.C. “...if that champion qualifies for the playoff, the bowl will select the replacement from that conference.
This is only in reference to the Orange, Sugar, and Rose spots reserved for conference champions. The extra Orange Bowl spot, the Fiesta, the Peach, and the Cotton do rely on the CFP rankings for their selections. It’s pretty easy to understand if you read the manual.
Georgia will definitely be sugar bowl and we will be at the orange vs Virginia.
I'm pretty sure you're misunderstanding. I did read your link. The bowls DO select the team that would take the tie-in spot if the conference champion is in the playoffs. They're just doing it in conjunction with the conference. That's why I brought up the SEC and Big 12.
In the SEC, if the champion is in the playoff, the Sugar Bowl and conference have agreed to send the next-highest ranked team.
In the Big 12, since they don't have divisions and don't want to penalize one of their own for making the championship game, they've agreed to send the loser of the Big 12 championship game to take the automatic Sugar Bowl tie-in if the winner makes the playoff.
The leghumpers will definitely go to the Sugar Bowl....
We'll be in the Orange Bowl, against Virginia...
After the playoff carnage....I think the Gators will end up with a National ranking of #5 or #6....
Not too shabby for Dan the Man's only 2nd year!!!
Those "big boys" had better watrch out...because the mighty Gatrors are coming for you!!!
Where does that leave alabama?
Making our sandwiches.
Cole cublic said outback vs Minn
Dont forget that uga played in what was basically a home game for them in Atl while we were at death valley at night with a backup QB.
Yes, and Georgia beat UF on a neutral field. I don’t understand why people are comparing the losses to LSU. Neither was close in the end and Georgia pretty much dominated UF in their game when it mattered (3rd downs). Georgia will and should be ranked ahead of UF and it’s not even close.
