That's at least one headache the committee dodged, Chandler.
I think Mississippi State would have to be ranked ahead of TCU if both had one loss. Neither won an outright conference title.
Sitting here laughing as all these arguments come in because nobody is wrong. Everybody has a legitimate case. The only people I completely disagree with are the ones who say there is a clear cut top four.
Really have to wonder how much will change with the committee from year 1 to year 2 because of what may happen tomorrow. I can't imagine they'll do away with the week-to-week rankings, but I think the criteria need to be more clearly defined.
A lot, DJ. This is a blast isn't?
Good take, Dan -- I think that sums up the argument for a larger playoff in three sentences.
It is actually pretty cool to sit here, watching these three games, to think that there has been no moment like this in the history of the sport.
Great question, Aaron. I have no idea. But gun to my head, I'd go Bama, Oregon, FSU and Baylor.
Baylor because they have two wins against teams that are currently in the top 10. But like I said a minutes ago, I have close to no confidence in that pick
My top four, if nothing changes, would be Bama, Oregon, FSU and Ohio State. I just think they're the four best teams, period. I think the committee would go Bama, Oregon, TCU, FSU.
My top four, if nothing changes, would be:
Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, TCU
Would be interesting to see if any of the committee members are just so tired and confused by the Big 12 debate that both teams get thrown out, just so they don't have to deal with it. Buckeyes are making that easier.
In case anyone is still watching in Indy, Jones just threw another TD bomb. 45-0
Fascinating. All three of you have a different four. Can only imagine what the committee is like then!
I also wonder if the lopsided nature of the Big Ten title game almost makes the committee recall just how poorly the league performed in September -- and maybe just say, nobody outside of Ohio State is any good up there, so we're not rewarding the Buckeyes for a 50-point win over a bad team. I don't think that's a good way to look at it, but ...
Well, AK, that's the whole argument about whether or not you use last week's rankings. Committee said they won't.
If there's one thing Georgia Tech is not, it's a good candidate to come from behind.
