29
so, now what? (Bama or TOSU???)
Dec 03rd 2017
21
neither team deserves it IMO
Dec 03rd 2017
22
whats your alternative then? Wisconsin?
Dec 03rd 2017
23
Give the 4th spot to UCF

How is Bama not deserving?
Dec 03rd 2017
24
      best wins miss st. and LSU?
Dec 03rd 2017
27
           also I see no reason to have 2 teams from one conference
Dec 03rd 2017
30
           i dont care what conference a team is from

                like i said im cool with it if it's blindingly apparent that the team be...

                as i said im cool w/it if it's blindingly apparent that the team belongs
Dec 03rd 2017
42
           yeah. 6-of-11 wins came against teams without winning records.
Dec 03rd 2017
31
                thats not really accurate. bama ended fsus season in 3 hours
Dec 03rd 2017
34
                and if Baker Mayfield got hurt first game, OU loses 4 games...
Dec 03rd 2017

                Ohio State got destroyed by Iowa.
Dec 03rd 2017
35
                     not really advocating for Ohio State either
Dec 03rd 2017
36
                     bama's best argument is that osu got destroyed by Iowa
Dec 03rd 2017
40
                          No, thats the argument against Ohio State
Dec 03rd 2017
56
                               best team based on what?
Dec 03rd 2017
62
                                    as i figured
Dec 04th 2017
80
stick bama in. clemson is winning the chip anyway
Dec 03rd 2017
32
      the GAME is Georgia/Clemson...wooo
Dec 03rd 2017
38
Congrats to Boise. They shut us down in the second half.
Dec 03rd 2017
43
The have to expand the playoff to 8 teams, the 5 major conference...
Dec 03rd 2017
44
I say 1 at large, use the other 2 spots on 2 G5 teams
Dec 03rd 2017
46
AND this post is considerably less crazy next year
Dec 03rd 2017
47
Nah. Teams just need to handle their business. 4 is enough. Don't lose.
Dec 03rd 2017
50
      thats a logical fallacy
Dec 03rd 2017
51
           Cross that bridge when you get to it. Aka never
Dec 03rd 2017
52
                ok fine 12-1?
Dec 03rd 2017
53
                     12-1 you didn't handle your business. It's in the committees hands.
Dec 03rd 2017
54
                          well obviously. thats what makes logical fallacy common.
Dec 03rd 2017

Welp. Don't get your ass kicked by shit teams.

How do you figure??
Dec 03rd 2017
58
      did they? or is this an epistemological fallacy also?
Dec 03rd 2017
79
fuck bama, but who didn't see this coming (playoff bias/complaints)...
Dec 03rd 2017
55
Is it really that painful to deal with OSU/USC fans complaining?
Dec 03rd 2017
60
oh it's fine to me.
Dec 03rd 2017
61
      this comparison doesnt make sense to me
Dec 03rd 2017
64
      yes.
Dec 03rd 2017
65
           conf championships matter (or should matter)
Dec 03rd 2017
68
      Yeah, I hate to see Bama back-door into the playoffs too.
Dec 03rd 2017
77
it's a question of what you find most offensive
Dec 03rd 2017
63
      would've made it more interesting
Dec 03rd 2017
66
           i never have nor will i ever advocate for 8

top four ranked teams are playing each other. I see no issue.

if not for the turnovers, they'd have no points. OSU just moving up and down the field.

all this might work out for bama.

two years in and Georgia won the SEC with a true freshman QB. going to the CFP.

Georgia might be the best job in the entire SEC, resource-wise, but have gone through some underwhelming times. he's already planting championship flags.

J.T. Barrett only has one leg, but has a combined 36 passes/runs.

A year ago they opted for one loss Ohio State, who didn't win their conference championship, over two loss conference championship winner Penn State. Ok.

Now, these talking heads are saying Ohio State, with two losses but a conference championship, will go in over one loss Alabama?

Eager to see what happens. I don't know there's a right or wrong answer either.

They lost one game to Auburn, in Auburn. They've dominated and played great all year. Are they the only team in America that's not allowed to lose a single game??

unless that 2nd team from the same conf has a resume that's just so good they cannot be denied...bama doesn't fit that bill.

let another conference get a stab at it.

"seems" like one of the best teams does not equate to blindingly apparent.

there's no strong objective or subjective case to make for bama.

we're giving them the benefit because they're bama. give the same resume to wisky or usc and they wouldn't even be in the discussion.

In response to Reply # 27


          

did not win their division or conference.

Ohio State had a marquee win over the Big 12 champ last season on the road...bama's win over Florida State turned out to be meaningless.

also if we're doing eye-test stuff, bama didn't look great on the road: 8-point win @ A&M, 7-point win @ Miss. State, 12-point loss @ Auburn.

People are quick to dismiss the FSU win, but FSU was the classic play to the level of competition team this year , they still had a lot of talent on that team (they played Miami and Clemson tough), plus they had Francois for that game.

That said i don't care either way, but that Iowa loss tho

Let them drop 55 poins on them. Two losses, one by ass whooping doesnt compare to one loss to Auburn, in Auburn.

In response to Reply # 35


          

that Iowa loss is damn near unforgivable.

but I think bama's extended excellence obscures the fact that they're a different team every season. and should be judged on their own merits. the 2017 bama team has as good a case as any for the fourth spot based on 11-1, but the narrative that they "dominated all season and had one slip up on the road" isn't completely accurate to me.

then who? fuck it, UCF. undefeated and with an interim coach.

you still haven't given any sort of answer to this other than they 'seem like it'.

they finished 3rd best in their conference not sure how that equates to 4th best team in the nation.

But I am still really happy with this season. What a turnaround by Tedford. I figured we'd win 5 games, max. Even though we shouldn't have dropped the UNLV game, I still consider this season to be a wild success. And we did it with a QB from the valley (Dinuba), which I love.

have MAC champ play AAC champ (East) and MWC champ vs CUSA champ (West) the week of Army-Navy

then its a TRUE national championship where every team had control of it's own destiny from day 1

the NCAA may even certify it

In response to Reply # 58


  

          

in that we are calling them the best teams *because* they won

which, coincidentally rarely happens in basketball. i dont care if someone's eyeball champions win or not. i care if everyone has an equal shot to compete, and that the winner checks off every box along the way.

remember 2 weeks ago when people said that was round 1 of the playoffs? wrll which fucking playoff allows teams to lose round 1 and then immediately jump to round 3?

the whole thing has very little internal validity

In response to Reply # 55


  

          

College fans will piss and moan regardless of how absurd their case may be. Some years it just works out where there is a clear cut #1 and #2 team. Many years it doesn't. A 4 team playoff is far more preferable (in my opinion) and equitable than the old system.

Do we really want to go back to the pre BCS era when championships were just arbitrarily decided? Where one year you could have 2 undefeated teams and then somehow one teams gets the slight edge over the other for unknown reasons (PSU/Nebraska '94) and then a few years later 2 teams split the title (Michigan/Nebraska '97) or the odd choice of FSU in 2000 over Miami & Washington. I could go on. The playoff does a much better job of eliminating those legitimate complaints/controversies. No rational college football fan will look back on this season and feel it was tainted by a biased system. The 2 best teams got in. You can argue the merits of UGA and 'Bama getting in, but oh well, at least the 2 best (going by their current resume) got in and 2 damn good teams will get a chance too.

I just think it's funny that Ohio State is some barometer of outrage now, when you consider their resume and what happened to Penn State last season.

OSU made it in last year on the strength of their numerous big wins

the main criticism for bama this year is their lack of big wins

bama has a weak resume, but just sort of speaking to the stuff I've seen on the internet today, with the Ohio State rallying cry being "so I guess conference championships don't matter now"

no, they aren't the end-all in the CFP...since uh, 2016 Ohio State

depending on the context. it's just another metric to use and in the context of this year it should've been weighted more heavily IMO. especially when you had two top 5 teams playing in the game. sometimes we have conf championship games which are total mismatches.

like ive said if you want to put in a 2nd team from a conference they better be really fucking good and have some objective evidence to demonstrate that

11-1 is 11-1 I guess. Their resume does kind of suck and they played poorly down the stretch. I could see an argument for either Bama or OSU, but I wouldn't shed tears over either team being left out.

In response to Reply # 55


          

3rd best team in their conference with nothing to show for themselves other than some sort of career achievement award is pretty high on the offensiveness meter. not to mention losing badly to auburn who got wrecked the following week.

you also had the committee state that there was very little separating teams 5-8...so ok, with little separation and bama stays home while other teams win a conference championship...and in OSU's case defeated an unbeaten top 4 team. seems to me that would swing things one way or the other.

with that said i dont blame anyone for not wanting to see a JT rematch vs clemson. as an OSU fan i dont even want to see that shit.

i wonder if OSU handled business in a more convincing fashion last night (as they should have) would it have changed the outcome today.

Ohio State blows out Wisconsin and there is a lot more momentum for it.

you know I for one agree about bama's bullshit, but this year there were three good choices and a rotating group of warts at the four spot.

there weren't four teams par excellence this season. no reason to go to eight teams just because of that reason.
