 If they have 2 of the best 4 then they should get 2 in.........same for any conference.

The only thing i ask for in this 4 team playoff is that you can't have 3 teams from the same conference in it. That's all

I agree...

Vandy should be more impressive this year with Franklin coaching there. Even their recruiting class has picked up.

The bad thing for them is their schedule right out the gate with SC with QB Shaw and RB Marcus Lattimore. NW could be a dog fight as well, with a win coming against Presbyterian.

If Vandy can come up against Georgia in game 4 at 3-0 they will be fired up because they nearly beat Georgia last year 33-28.

Then they can rest and heal the brusies before their next 3 SEC teams back to back Missouri, Florida, Auburn...

Then an easy win with UMass for their homecoming.

Then 3 more back to back SEC teams Kentucky, Ole Miss, Tennessee.

Finish the regular season with Wake Forrest.

Last year they were 6-6 i believe they do better by a game.

#6 games or at home, SC, Presbyterian, Florida, Auburn, UMass, Tennessee, thats why i give them an extra game because they could very well win more then 2 of them home games.

Check this out after Alabama beat them last year 34-0.

Something came over the team and if they start out like they finished smart money will take Vandy and good points against any team on their 2012 schedule pending injurys.

Year 2011 after the Alabama game...

Georgia 33-28 >> lost

Army 44-21 >> won

Arkansas 31-28 >> lost

Florida 26-21 >> lost

Kentucky 38-8 >> won

Tennessee 27- 21 >> lost in overtime

Wake Forest 41-7 >> won

Bowl game

Cincinnati 31-24 >> lost

So when does this start? All I am seeing 2014 but what does that mean? The bowl games are played in January. I know this upcoming season is still garbage but what about the one after that? The season starts in 2013 but bowls will be played 2014? Will there be a playoff then or do we have to wait through two more seasons of bullshit?

I like it as long as it is conference champions.  A 2nd place team should not be allowed to be in it. 

I have no problem with "wild card teams" being in BUT only if all division winners get a chance.  A wild card team did not win the conference.  It is not the fault of other conferences if they have a down year.

But I am glad they are getting a playoff.  I think 8 teams or 16 teams would be much better but at least this is a start.

then alabama at 11-1 and stanford at 11-1 last year would have been left out

You take the team that won the conference or the conference title game...depending on how they decide to call the conference champion.

it's not that easy.  any 4 team playoff without alabama last year (who finished 11-1 but did NOT even play or win their conf game) is a farce, and i am not even a SEC fan

No it is not.  Alabama did not win anything.  Winners play for the championship.  You cannot take it out on every other team that wins what they are supposed to win.

Because Oregon wasn't ranked in the Top 4 teams. That was all I was saying. I posted that when I thought it was top 4. Now it might go by conference. My bad

I don't think it should be automatic conference champs are in and teams that didn't win their conference can't be in

That would be crazy
