The reaction and 5 Thoughts to Alabama’s 35-28 SEC Championship win over Georgia.
5. Did Georgia do enough?
How is this not one of the four best teams in college football?
Yeah, it lost to LSU by 20, and yeah, to get in, it’ll be the first two-loss team to get the nod. But it gave the be-all-end-all No. 1 team absolutely everything – hanging punch-for-punch until the final moments.
By the eye test, the talent test, and the how-it-plays-against-Alabama test, it’s absolutely worthy of getting in.
But yeah, the team is grouchy after this with the type of tweet you send out when you lose a gut-puncher like this …
It suffered from having to play Alabama in its conference championship game instead of Pitt, Texas or Northwestern, and again, it more than performed like one of the elite teams in college football.
This team had two shots in the end zone to tie as it pushed Alabama to the absolute brink, however … should it get a rematch?
That’s what you’re talking about by giving Georgia a No. 4 slot. The committee would basically be giving the Dawgs a rematch.
Georgia is absolutely one of the four best teams, but we just did this, and Alabama won. A rematch just wouldn’t be right, but … it would probably be fair.
