Default Don't want to see this scenario

Clemson, Ohio State and Oklahoma all win out which I think is very possible.

LSU beats Bama with an injured Tua. LSU wins the SEC Championship.

Then we have a one loss Bama with the Tua excuse. Remember the committee gave Clemson a pass against Syracuse when Kelly was out.

That is the scenario that concerns me the most.

If Oklahoma or Ohio State lose a game then I will feel much more comfortable. As I said in another thread though we will know a lot when the first committee rankings come out as far as what the committee values.

They did give Clemson a pass that year and they have already given Alabama a pass when they lost their last regular season game against Auburn and didn't play in the SEC Championship. But there were not 3 other undefeated Champions. Also, Alabama is going to have to get past Auburn who may or may not be ranked when they play. Alabama will not make the CPL if the only ranked team they beat was #25 Texas AM.

If Tua can't go against LSU then I don't see them winning that game unless LSU just self-destructs. I think this scenario is more likely than we hope. OSU probably has the toughest road to go but they also have looked the most impressive on both sides of the ball. It could get very uncomfortable here in the home stretch.

I just donít see them leaving out the an undefeated defending champion on a 28 game win streak. Having said that SCAR and Pitt in the ACC CG will be tougher games than we think

If you put in a 1 loss Bama team that got woodshedded by Clemson a year ago over an undefeated ACC champion Clemson then there will be riots in the streets!
