His seeding makes no sense. If UGA is 1, then they win the SECCG. That means Bama's one loss comes to UGA in Atlanta. For UT to slide in at 4, they only have one loss and don't win the East. Which means they had to lose to UGA but beat Bama. But if UT beats Bama and and then Bama loses the SECCG, Bama has two losses and is probably out of the playoff and certainly not #2.

Chris didn't think this through.

Bama UGA UT.

College Football Playoff picks after Week 4

Lots of football to play but I love the fact that we are in the conversation.
Wow. Yeah, no. The 3 of those teams cannot coexist in the playoffs. They have to cannibalize each other. The SEC can get by with 2 teams if they're both undefeated before the conference championship. But this just won't happen.

To be the 4 seed in that scenario, we’d have to beat Alabama, lose to UGA, and then have the Tide defeat the Dawgs in the SECCG. ‘Bama 12-1, Georgia 12-1, and Tennessee 11-1. That’s the only way I can see where all 3 would possibly make it with us at #4.

Playoffs then expand next season because the rest of College Football would riot over 3 SEC teams in the playoff.

We beat Bama and lose to Georgia.

Undefeated Georgia plays a one loss Bama in the SEC championship.

Bama beats Georgia.

Then all three would have one loss.

Alot of dominoes, but that is essential what he is saying he thinks will happen.

The only way it works is we beat Bama and lose to Georgia in the regulation season.

Bama loses to us but beats Georgia in the SECCG.

Georgia beats us, loses to Bama in SECCG.

All 3 teams have one loss at that point. (Two 12-1 teams, one 11-1 team). Seeding wise Georgia at 1 doesn't make sense, but 3 playoff eligible teams is I guess possible. Certainly not even remotely likely to happen, but that's the path.

It’s not impossible. Alabama, Kentucky, LSU are not unbeatable... if Bama or UGA are off when they play us we can beat them. Anyone who says otherwise has BVS. It’s College Football! Kansas State beat Oklahoma yesterday for crying out loud! Anything can happen
