Danielson: Committee should favor Alabama over Georgia

Music director James Levine conducts the Boston Symphony Orchestra on its opening night at Tanglewood in Lenox. Mass

The argument for Alabama getting in over a conference champion like Ohio State would be just how Ohio State got in previous year. Miami enters the ACC championship game with only one loss, and four ACC teams are ranked in the College Football Playoff top 25.

"The assignment to the College Football Playoff Selection Committee is to choose the four best teams in the country", Sankey said Friday afternoon in Atlanta.

"But I'm not in the committee room and I've always supported the committee. It's not a secret I'm giving away, where there are some losses that have caught people's attention".

But Delany, during a 20-minute interview with the Tribune, laid out the case for an 11-2 Ohio State team that wins the Big Ten title.

The point is likely void, considering the selection committee values conference champions.

SEC officials confirmed that former Vanderbilt head coach Bobby Johnson and former Central Michigan head coach Herb Deromedi are the committee members assigned to the SEC.

"You could make the argument that Clemson's taking over the sport as the premier dynasty", Davis said. Auburn does have a 23-point win over Georgia only three weeks ago, so they have that going for them. "So, you can imagine that's an extensive call".

Kyrie Irving Claims The Celtics Don't Consider Themselves A Great Team Yet
Asked about his assist high, he said, "Just trying to play through our offense, trying to push the pace". The Celtics head coach insists he hasn't decided on a fixed starting five for the regular season.

"I watch it as closely as you do", he said, "but I'm so confident that there are so many twists and turns that I don't get there even with one game to go, let alone with four games to go". "We challenged ourselves in every way". The average for a CFP team through three years was 7-1.

The Buckeyes' two losses - 31-16 to Oklahoma and 55-24 blowout loss to a 7-5 Iowa - are a big problem for them, especially with one-loss Alabama still in the picture. "That's a viable resume".

CBS Sports broadcaster Gary Danielson had quite the take during Georgia's 28-7 win over Auburn, which gave the Bulldogs their first SEC championship since 2005.

"If we have two in, I think that would be remarkable", Sankey said. But I hope and believe, have some confidence, that that will happen. While Auburn did defeat Georgia 40-17 at home on November 11, the Bulldogs did what Alabama was unable to do - defeat the Tigers when it mattered most.

The Crimson Tide are on the outside looking in when it comes to the College Football Playoff heading into championship weekend.

Sankey brought up Alabama's season-opening win over Florida State, which was ranked third in both preseason national polls, as part of Alabama's playoff profile. Whenever you go challenge yourself, over time, you won't win as many as when you don't challenge yourselves. If you're telling me that it's the four best teams - it can't be 'who's the most deserving, ' 'undefeated, ' it has to be the four best teams.

Florida State (5-6) has had a disappointing year, but could become bowl eligible with a win Saturday against Louisiana Monroe.
