    Under the scenario I painted their chances would be nil. There's
    not a potential top 10 team on their schedule other than Auburn.

    Thus nothing to yank them up. They would climb in the polls, if
    they continued to win, but even beating a Top 10 USC in the
    title game probably wouldn't get them above 6th...maybe 5th.

    If Bama lost in the SEC title game vs a 1-loss UGA team, Bama
    would go over Washington based on beating Auburn.

    People pay attention to the name on the front of the jersey.

    Bama went to the playoffs, despite not playing for the league title.
    Ohio St went to the playoffs despite not playing for its league title,
    plus they got beat that year by the team that won the Big10.

    Wisconsin was unbeaten and lost in the title game and stayed home.

    The "name" Wisconsin doesn't have the same draw as the name
    "Ohio St."

    Their trip to the CFP two years ago happened when they lost to the best team they faced and it was just before the end of the season. They had a fucking terrible OOC slate and beat a fraudulent Colorado team in the CCG.

    I know how some of you want the CFP to work, but they have shown that isn't how it actually works.

    If UW lost to Auburn and ran the table they have a decent shot at the playoffs. Period. History is on their side.

    You're probably right about Clemson. They've got a cakewalk to the playoff, though they did show vulnerability last year with Bryant at QB. If he's still the starter this year, I wouldn't rule out an upset again, and this time it could be enough to keep them out depending on what happens in the other 4 conferences.

    I disagree, I do not see anyone in the East that will give Georgia and real trouble with the exception of maybe Florida. The reason I mention Florida is because first, it is a rivalry game (the Oklahoma and Texas game is almost always interesting no matter where the teams are ranked and this seems to hold true for the Georgia/Florida game) and second it will depend on how ready Mullen gets Florida in his first year there. Auburn may give Georgia some trouble (Alabama too) but, Auburn is in the West.

    Frankly, I think Alabama may have to watch out for a possible trap game against Mississippi State but, otherwise I agree with your assessment of their schedule. I do not think Jimbo Fisher is going to have A&M up and running at an SEC West competitive level in his first year.

    I think they'll be challenged against BC, FSU and A&M, and might even lose one, but they do have a pretty favorable schedule. No Miami or VT cross division. They do play alot of what I would call above average games. Teams that could finish in the 25-40 range with UL, NC State, Wake, A&M and South Carolina. They'd be better off losing to one of these teams than a team like BC or FSU because they would get a projected top 25 win.

    The ACC Coastal is absolute junk this year. I don't think Miami or VT would give them much of a game honestly. I'd love to see calamity out of that division and we wind up with Duke or GT playing in the ACCCG.

    2010 is the last time an ACC Coastal team won the conference.

    I don't think it's very good either. But those probably are the best two teams in it. But it wouldn't surprise me to see Ga Tech win the division. They get Miami at home and always play VT well.

    I wish there was the "useful" rating in this forum like in the others, because this was useful.

    I think the Big 10 West might reach that level of drought. And that's with there being 3 different teams instead of just two with FSU and Clemson.

    Good point. They beat VT last year and should've beaten Miami. I'm not thinking Miami will be so lucky this year. Either way, it's likely that if Clemson makes the ACCCG they're gonna win it.

    Since 2010 (for conferences that have title games)
    PAC12 South is 1-6 in championship game
    ACC Coastal is 1-7
    B1G West is 0-4 (Wisconsin’s division is 2-5 winning the first two, losing the next 5)
    SEC East is 1-7

    Probably the one who hasn’t clinched a conference title in over 5000 days.

    Wow, I didn't realize how lopsided every conference is.

    Before the death of the Big12 title game the North was 4-11 and lost the last 7.

    The North collapsed when Nebraska fell. There was never another real threat to win the conference coming from that division otherwise.
