Better talk to the folks down at Alabama after last year. Bama had one loss but turned out to be the best team in the country.
There are going to be better second and third place teams from a strong conference better than many conference champs. That is why the best teams need to fill playoff slots. Heck, take the top eight teams. That should be a good playoff.
I would be for an 8 team playoff with the 5 major conference champions (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12, and SEC), plus the highest rated remaining teams in the polls. That would make the SEC happy and everyone else except the BEFC and the other lesser FBS conferences like the MAC and CUSA.
