Yeah, I get that.


But there's no way to settle this directly by having them play an SEC schedule. Adjudicating based on who has more "football knowledge" seems pretty unsatisfying. We could look at records. Looking at Cincy's schedule (remember, I only saw the ND game), it does look like they played down to some pretty crappy teams - IU, Navy. Then again, every team has its ups and downs - doesn't look good but doesn't mean they couldn't perform in the SEC or even catch Bama/UGA when they were peaking.

What we're left with is the playoffs. If Cincy takes a beating from any of the three teams, I think the case for 3-loss SEC team gets stronger (as an aside, Ole Miss was the only other non-3-loss team in the SEC, so it's not exactly the worst thing one can say).

Anyway, Cincy can put all of this to rest and, should they be playing Bama, I strongly prefer that they do!
