How Bad Breaks Are Jeopardizing the Tide’s Playoff Chances

While the Tide could have kept things under their own control by beating Auburn, it’s clear that a multitude of varying factors and downright bad breaks have jeopardized the Tide’s playoff case. Here are just a few things falling the wrong way that now hurt the Tide’s chances:
The SEC Had a Weak Year
The SEC has long been regarded as likely the best conference in the entire country, however, this year it just wasn’t that good. This is clearly shown with the storm raining down on coaches at the end of the year.
Tennessee, Arkansas, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M all stunk this season. All four will have new coaches next year. All four lost to Alabama this year.
The caliber of the other teams in the conferences doesn’t help Bama’s resume in the least bit.
