There is obviously a lot of SEC bias coming from Nick Saban, but I do agree with him kind of. Is Georgia one of the best 4 teams in America? Yes, without a doubt. Vegas agrees:
If we lived in a perfect world, the final four would be:
1. Alabama vs. 4. Notre Dame
2. Clemson vs. 3. Georgia
That won’t happen and I’m okay with that. My final four prediction is:
3. Notre Dame
It’s a deserving vs. best argument. Not one team with a loss of more than 3 points. Georgia’s blowout loss to LSU hurts them. Ohio State’s blowout loss to Purdue hurts them. All 4 of those teams took care of what was put in front of them outside of Oklahoma’s 3-point loss to Texas (at a neutral site), which they avenged today.
The 4 above are the highest possibility in my mind. Including Georgia would be crazy. The craziest 4 would not include Notre Dame.
4. Oklahoma/Ohio State
This would have massive implications. I think it would force Notre Dame to join the ACC and may start another conference realignment situation.
We’ll see tomorrow morning.
