The mother of all SEC conspiracy theories

Hoo, boy, if this is right, look out.

Can you imagine the amount of shit that would be thrown Greg Sankey’s way if that’s how the season played out?  Or the rank speculation that would be spewed about the decision making process?  There ain’t enough popcorn in the world to get us through that scenario.

    What happens if the WLOCP isn’t played?

    That game will very likely decide the East and without the head to head match up things have to be murky.

    Anything will be suspect that is not known before they play the first game. Just the fundamental knowing the rules before you start playing.

    During the LSU-FU hurricane game rescheduling cat fight, Sankey pointed out that by rule only teams that play all 8 games schedule are eligible for the championship game. Wonder if the rule is written for “all scheduled games” or “8 games”?

    SEC rule #1: All ties go to Alabama.

    I am trying to figure this out, but have to think that the division champ is already the one with the most wins, so a 7, 8 or 9-1 team wins the division over a 6-0 team, right? And then the next tie-breaker is head-to-head. The only way to get to further tie-breakers is if the head-to-head (i.e., Cocktail Party), was the game that got cancelled.
    At that point, assuming Georgia and Florida are each 8-1 (with no Cocktail Party), they’d have the same 6-0 record against the East and 2-1 against the West, wouldn’t the tie breaker be the highest ranked team?
    What am I missing? I will say, if teams miss 3+ games, I don’t think anyone should put much stock in the season, IMO…

    Beyond the SEC, how will matchups for the CFP be determined? Under the best of circumstances teams will not play the same number of games. So what if the BIG 10 is only able to play 6 or 7 games but the SEC gets in 8 or 9? How’s that going to work? My gut feeling is Ohio State gets in regardless of their record or the number of games played. I think this season may make my head explode.

    Seems like that’s something you’d want to go ahead and hammer out. A less than optimal plan is better than nothing at all.
