No one's doing that. Don't flatter yourself in thinking that everyone just hates the SEC. It's the BCS that's the problem.

And newsflash, dude. A plus one isn't that much better...

I wouldn't even say that.

Still would rather see a playoff. At least then there'd be no debate.

you don't think there would be a debate even with a playoff? As long as the POLLS decide who gets in the playoff, there will be debate whether its 4 teams, 8 teams, 16 teams or the 2 team playoff we have now!

Even with a playoff you would still see people complaining about how a team had an easier opponent than someone else. "Yeah they won but they didn't have to play so-and-so...."

Not to mention there'll still be a cutoff for who gets in, and occasionally a good team will be left out.

I don't think you'll ever see anything that will ever totally settle things. Arguing is part of college football. But I think this season really is going to at least set the stage for some kind of change--sort of the way people finally decided to change the old system after having year after year of split national titles.

The SEC doesn't want to see a playoff. That's why they keep advocating for the system to remain the way it is. If we had a playoff system this year, we would have seen OSU and Michigan State playing for the Title instead of the Boring Bowl between Alabama and LS-who?

True.

No one should be lambasting the SEC for being exceptionally good the last several years in a VERY flawed system.

I like the SEC myself, and with the exception of Big 12 South teams, I follow the SEC closest of probably any conference. Always have. I would like to see many matchups with the Big 12 South teams especially and the SEC West. It wouldn't be too far to drive and it would make for a lot of fun matchups and great tradition.

I think fans of both conferences would like to see that... but the bad blood that has been established because of Mizzou and TAMU leaving the Big12 for the SEC has killed any chance of us fans realizing that.
