A Southern Fried Playoff

SEC Banner noted in a recent article:

No matter how one might slice it this is a Southern Playoff.

There was the Bulldog Nation’s takeover of Chicago in September, and the win over Notre Dame in that school’s historic venue.
There was the throttling of downtrodden rivals Tennessee and Florida and Georgia Tech, and that one blemish on the Plains of Auburn all but erased by an SEC Championship victory over the same Auburn squad.
