He just can’t see it, y’all.
“I just can not imagine a scenario where the committee is willing to put two from one conference in,” Herbstreit said. “Georgia looks great right now. Alabama does too. You talk about their schedule. Jalen Hurts is only getting better and more comfortable with Brian Daboll in their scheme. I just can’t envision those two teams both getting in and two other Power conferences getting left out. It would have to be an incredible unique situation.”
He really can’t. But he’ll have a sad if that’s the way it goes.
“Even if they’re both deserving, its just hard for me to imagine the committee not recognizing and giving a Power 5 conference a chance to get into that playoff,”Herbstreit said. “I’m all about the best four. I don’t care what conference you’re in at all,” Herbstreit said. “I hope the committee does the right thing. To me, if Bama and UGA (are the best) when the dust settles, I just can’t watch the committee not give them a chance. And if they feel Georgia is one of the top four teams after watching the (SEC Championship) game, so be it, put it in there.”
Will I have to amend the Lexicon definition of the Herbstreit Doctrine? Stay tuned.
