SEC title meaningless? Gary Danielson suggests yes, has Bama over UGA for Playoff
Georgia just won the SEC Championship Game with a decisive 28-7 victory over the Auburn Tigers, avenging its only loss from earlier this season.
However, not everyone is impressed with the Bulldogs, even after winning a conference title. In fact, CBS broadcaster Gary Danielson said he thinks the College Football Playoff committee should disregard the SEC title game when making their choices for the final four.
As you can see below, he said he didn’t think the committee should “take this game into effect at all” during the fourth quarter of Saturday’s action:
Help me out. Was Gary Danielson saying the committee should put in Alabama INSTEAD of the SEC champ? He said "I don't think the committee should take this game into effect at all."

Danielson went on to say that he also doesn’t think Ohio State should get in ahead of Alabama, but his take on the SEC Championship Game was particularly interesting.
Heading into Saturday’s action, many considered it a CFP elimination game, but Danielson seemed to disagree with that sentiment late in Georgia’s big-time victory over the Tigers.
