The article is about ESPN’s analyst Paul Finebaum’s belief that Alabama should make the College Football Playoff ahead of undefeated Washington and Florida State. Finebaum thinks that Alabama’s loss against Texas should not prevent them from reaching the playoffs if they secure the Southeastern Conference title by defeating defending national champion Georgia. He argues against leaving Alabama out of the playoffs despite their loss to Texas and emphasizes the significance of their potential win against Georgia in the SEC Championship.
He also discusses the intense competition for the College Football Playoff spots this season and highlights the possibility of top teams recording losses in the remaining games. He expresses support for the decision to expand the tournament to 12 teams from 2024 onwards.
