So let’s take for granted that Florida will lose in the SEC Championship game against Alabama. That’ll put them below Ole Miss in the polls and probably the Championship list too (if they aren’t there Tuesday night already). That’ll mean Alabama goes to the Championship series and Ole Miss gets the Sugar Bowl right?
Now here’s what I found sad/funny. If Ole Miss had beat Arkansas and gone to the SEC Championship, I think they would have been left out of the Championship games no matter what. So they’d have ended up at…the Sugar Bowl even if they won out. Looks like UM (and MSU and tons of other non-blue-blood favorites) can forget about ever reaching those Championship Series games until and unless they win out. No losses.
They REALLY gotta extend the Championship Playoff to 8 teams ASAP. (Why we aren’t able to do the same as the lower divisions have been doing FOREVER still baffles me. I know, I know. $$$)
