We all know that Paul Finebaum is a professional SEC homer and Big Ten troll, so his latest comments are right on brand.

Following the release of the inaugural College Football Playoff rankings of the 2020 season, Finebaum wasted no time hyping up his favorite conference.

According to Finebaum, there is a “reasonably good chance” that two teams from the SEC could reach the postseason.

The Alabama Crimson Tide currently sit at No. 1, followed by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

“This was pretty obvious and it’s where the SEC is positioned right now,” Finebaum said, via Saturday Tradition. “We know about Alabama. But as of right now there’s a pretty good chance that a second SEC team gets in.

“We saw that a couple of years ago with Alabama and Georgia. But if Florida beats Alabama in the SEC championship and everyone else wins out, there’s a reasonably good chance that Florida and Alabama get in. If Florida loses, look out, here comes Texas A&M. Remember they beat Florida at Kyle Field back in September, but lost to Alabama in Tuscaloosa. But they are positioned to finish in that fourth spot if things go according to plan.”

Sitting in the No. 3 spot is the Clemson Tigers, while the Ohio State Buckeyes round out the top four. The Texas A&M Aggies, Florida Gators, and Cincinnati Bearcats are on the outside looking in.

So while it’s easy to make fun of Finebaum, he could be onto something if the SEC doesn’t cannibalize itself in the final few weeks of the season.
