You want to see SEC bias in action?  Saban given ten minutes during Big  10 halftime tonight to lobby for Bama to make the playoff.  Can you imagine Day being given time during the half of the SEC title game to lobby for OSU?   The media’s love for Bama and trying to rig things for the SEC is ridiculous.

Ignore that those close losses were to multi-loss teams that have been badly exposed. Ignore the multiple other close calls...

Nick Saban has 7 National Championships and considered the GOAT..... Like it or not> that's how stuff works in the real world.

When Day wins 1 National Championship people will know who he is then. 😃

Just accept life and do more with it!

Saban had an interesting point, though. Who do you think would be favored between Bama and TCU?

TCU vs Bama per the ever-lovely Heather Dinich:

https://www.espn.com/college-football/insider/story/_/id/35173843/college-football-playoff-edge-final-ranking

 

TCU vs. Alabama

The common opponent: Texas

On Sept. 10, in the second game of the season, Alabama won at Texas 20-19. On Nov. 12, TCU won at Texas 17-10. Alabama's offense found more success (374 yards) against the Longhorns than TCU (283 yards), despite scoring only three more points than the Horned Frogs. The Tide also had a stretch with six straight punts, and there were dropped passes and 11 first-half penalties. The Tide also faced Texas backup quarterback Hudson Card for most of the game after starter Quinn Ewers was injured in the first quarter.

TCU played arguably its best defensive game of the season, holding running back Bijan Robinson to 29 yards. The Frogs allowed just 199 total yards, and limited Ewers to 17-of-39 passing and forced an interception. The Horned Frogs held Texas to a field goal on consecutive drives inside the TCU 10 in the second half.

EDGE: TCU


Résumé

Entering Saturday, the Horned Frogs were No. 1 in ESPN's strength of record metric, but No. 36 in strength of schedule behind Ohio State (35th), Alabama (eighth) and Tennessee (seventh). TCU's nonconference lineup of Tarleton, Colorado and SMU doesn't include a Power 5 opponent with a winning record, while Alabama had the nonconference win at Texas.

TCU is currently 2-1 against CFP top 25 teams, with wins against No. 10 Kansas State and No. 20 Texas, and then the title game loss to K-State. Although TCU lost Saturday, it can still claim a win against the Big 12 champs. TCU has four wins against opponents over .500 (Oklahoma State, K-State, Texas Tech and Texas).

Alabama is 2-2 against CFP top 25 teams. Its best win is against No. 20 Texas, followed by No. 24 Mississippi State. Its losses are to No. 7 Tennessee and No. 14 LSU, which finished as four-loss SEC runner-up to Georgia. Alabama has three wins against Power 5 teams over .500 (Texas, Mississippi State and Ole Miss).

EDGE: TCU


The losses

TCU lost its last game by three points. Alabama lost two games, both on the road, by a combined four points. Both teams lost to ranked opponents. TCU lost to a top-10 conference champion. No. 14 LSU is likely to sink further following its 50-30 loss to Georgia in the SEC championship game.

EDGE: TCU

Final prediction: No. 3 TCU maintains its current position, with Ohio State earning the No. 4 spot.

I myself question TCU's ability to win the title.

But unlike the great majority of years in the last dozen or so, what makes anyone think Bama would be a strong contender THIS year?  They have been FAR from formidable.  The o-line might be their weakest in a long time. The receivers are a huge drop off from last year. They have lost twice to multiple-loss teams and they arguably have another 2-3 TCU-esque games they could easily have lost.

I would not count on Vegas favoring Bama at all. The last two games against highly-ranked foes for them resulted in a loss and a 6-point win (versus a now 4-loss team).
