They won’t. Because $EC. But you.. and Coach Day... are right!!

Committee will do what it wants and I really hope we get the #1 seed but no matter what you gotta appreciate how remarkable this season has been. Simply amazing.
Agreed but I think Tress and Urban and any coach would make the case for their team. Ryan Day said it beautifully.

If Clemson is as good as we say they are, then they will cook LSU alive and we would see them anyways in the finals.
All roads lead to Clemson, might as well see them in the first round.
Yep, 3 weeks to get rested and prepare is better than 1 week and possibly dinged up. Give me Clemson now if we're going to see them anyways.

Will ask you one question...who would you rather give 3 weeks to prepare? Coach O or Dabo?
Justice delayed is justice denied....#FTP
Gonna play Clemson either way, I would like to be rested and at full health and be the underdog. So in the scenario we are in, I'll go with Dabo and Clemson.
Drew Bama in Round 1 of 2014... did fine then. Will do fine this time, too.
This. If we want the trophy, we have to beat two damn good teams regardless.
For crying out loud...Urban did the same thing.
Stop trying to make a Day vs Urban narrative.
Meyer was a politician and clueless in big games.
Yeah three national titles is clueless. He sucks!

I would bet we don't get the #1 seed, just because we played a closer game against a lower ranked opponent. The committee put LSU at #1 I believe after they upset Alabama. Wouldn't put it past them to put them back at #1 after beating their #4 team, UGA. Either way, glad we get 3 weeks to heal up and prepare for the next opponent and glad none of our key players suffered any devastating injuries tonight.

I’d take first half Wisconsin over just about anyone in the country - including Georgia. If we couldn’t hang with them when they were kicking our teeth in, I guarantee the ‘dawgs couldn’t.
I love how they act like LSU deserves to pass us on the one time they statistically out performed us. Our margin of victory over ranked opponents is double theirs. Like 25 to 12. But one game should do it? Its ludicrous because we were facing a real top 10 opponent for the 2nd time who knew us inside out. I honestly believe Wisky would have beat Georgia by 3 TD'S today. They were clicking and pumped. Our 27-0 run is one for the history books. Closest victory was 11 points in a monsoon where we fumbled 3 times. A game we dominated. We 100% percent should be #1. Every metric says so. Need to reward the 9th and 10th conference games and the fact we played 0 fcs teams. Set the precedent.
It's crazy. Wisconsin had nothing to play for and they showed up and played great. Georgia could have made the playoff and they didn't even get off the bus. But they'll be ranked top 5 in the preseason next year.
Harbaugh is Michigan, Michigan is Harbaugh. They are together the ultimate con.
That’s a lot of valid points.
Recency bias is real.
Really good post
Play more zone..send a blitz .. mix in man.. obviously mich and wis 2nd half show that
"To The House"
I don't know what to expect. Saw a stat that no team that was ranked #1 heading into Championship weekend and won has dropped below #1.. but it's already been razor thin and numbers wise LSU had a better win this weekend.
If they pick LSU that's fine.. I just DO NOT want it to be because they beat Georgia. If the Georgia win is just a cherry on top that puts them over so be it.. but if that win is a big part of the sundae then hard pass. Georgia is barely a top 40 offense and they were missing their best 3 WRs and Swift was clearly not healthy. I'll puke if I have to hear how the LSU defense looks great because they shut down a team missing all of its playmakers that when healthy couldn't really pile up points..
I just like how he didn’t throw a bitch fit like Dabo and Saban did last weekend. Didn’t embarrass the university looking like a whiny bitch.
No one in college football played a tougher three game stretch. That was a heavyweight finish to the season, and they came away with three straight double digit wins. Pretty impressive, if you ask me.

So true. But if you go over to ESPN they will tell you it’s time to move LSU back to the top.
Is anyone really surprised LSU did that to Georgia? 1-Georgia’s offense was and is pathetic. It is laughable that LSU’s defensive performance against that offense means LSU has solved their defensive woes. Get out. 2- recent history proves a great defense (an SEC defense) can not stop an great offense. Look at what OU has done on offense to Georgia and Alabama. Look at Clemson’s track record in the playoffs against the vaunted Alabama defense. These SEC defenses have no answers, and LSU v. Georgia proved that again.
Sure LSU is good. And maybe they are the best team in the country. But these playoff games will be a race to 35. Georgia was never going to be able to hang.
"Mongo only sausage in bowl of soup"
I couldn't believe my eyes yesterday when during the telecast CBS posted a graphic that showed that UGA's defense had played 5 teams who were starting a back up or third string QB. In fact, I looked it up. UGA's defense played teams with an average total offense rating of 81, and that doesn't include FCS opponent Murray State. If we assign Murray State a ranking of 131 (there are 130 FBS teams), the total offense ranking of UGA's opponents drops from 81 to 85. That puts their opponent's average total offense ranking in the bottom 35%. In other words, UGA's defense being great was just a mirage.
I hope they drop OSU! Heck drop them to 3, move Clemson to #2, and watch Day and company humiliate the Tigers.
