Did they get it right?

wtf is the big 10 really that bad?

I just wanna know how the fuck Miami got first place votes?

i want to know how ohio state is in the top 10, what a joke

No. If auburn is better than georgia, then why didn't Penn State get ahead of OSU last year?
>>
>>79705843
What was the score? Auburn was a 30 point difference till they let them have a touchdown at the end.
>>
>>79705843
Because

1. the committee made a mistake in letting OSU in
2. the committee will use any excuse they possibly can to not pick penn state because penn state should not have a football team
>>
>>79706126

It's time for us all to accept the simple, undeniable fact that the playoff at the end of the year is just going to be between what the committee feels are the four best conference winners, barring two of the major conferences having extremely shitty two-loss winners, at which point they might put in a one-loss runner-up or Notre Dame if they're undefeated.
>>
>>79706229
Most likely but a Sec runner up could get in.
>>
>>79705881
Auburn has 2 losses. What is the value of a loss? Is it worth less if it happens earlier in the season? Or do you just have selective memory?
>>
>>79706229
Newsflash. Notre dame is not undefeated.

>>79706229
>>
The committee needs to fucking GET OVER Notre Dame. They weren't good this year. They weren't good last year. They're never fucking good, every year they are overrated trash that play a babby schedule and get hyped up once they string together a few wins, only for the shit-filled balloon to finally burst apart when they play a team with real talent. Yet for the past three years now we've seen the committee overrank them and fuck up things for teams below them who actually deserve to rank higher. Notre Dame fucks everything up. They should be banned from playoff contention.

P.S. They're terrible fucking Catholics, too. Their local archdiocese should stage a coup over the dean.
>>
>>79706332
Auburn just unseated the #1 and will have to face the new #1 in 11 days. The only way to stay up there with 2 losses is a brutal schedule. Not a Big 10 schedule.
>>
>>79705843
Ohio State should have won that game last year, Auburn ran Georgia out of the house. Regarding their 2 losses, Penn State got absolutely destroyed by Michigan and lost to a mediocre Pittsburgh whereas Auburn lost two close games at the defending national champions and LSU

>>79705816
what case do you have for any team below them to be above them let alone 3?
>>
>>79706432
They lost to LSU, why is there no penalty for that?
>>
There is no such thing as half a loss, or a quarter of a loss. A loss is a loss.

Why can't the committee just come up with criteria ahead of time and be transparent about that criteria throughout the season?

Daily reminder for everyone shitting on the Big Ten that the Big Ten is 7-5 this year vs. the other power 5 conferences and only behind the SEC in out of conference record{which is thanks to the SEC playing 11 FCS schools vs. the Big Ten playing 3}

Wisconsin hasn't played tOSU, Sparty, or Penn State. And they won't until the title game.

Their best win is against Iowa.

How the fuck is Clemson still number 4? They’d get BTFO’d by any team in the top 10

They just point to the fact they win 60 percent of their bowl games which are glorified home games

Every fucking one of those is in an SEC state except Charlotte and thats about as close as you can get without counting too

your playoff this year will be

1. Alabama (13-0)
2. Miami (13-0)
3. Wisconsin (13-0)
4. Oklahoma (12-1)

also just read an article on SI that thinks a 12-1 Miami with a loss against Clemson could make a case for the CFP. Which is silly because why would Miami lose to a 10-2 Clemson when da yoo is back

Mizzou, 5-5 (2-4)
Tennessee 4-6 (0-6)
Vandy 4-6 (0-6)
Ole Miss 5-5 (2-4)
Arkansas 4-6 (1-5)

are all still competing to fight for a bowl game in the SEC. Its interesting to see these teams in the basement of their conference, still trying to work their way to bowl eligibility, though it seems almost impossible to some. Fans of these teams may not be happy with competing just to make a 13th game on the season, but the teams themselves should be ready to get out there and give it all the fight they have left just to show the world what they can do

this is just a small sample of teams, obviously, but do you guys like this end of season scenario as it unfolds? When teams, right on the threshold of at least taking something from the season are fighting it out? I like this little SEC scenario because of the 4-6 and 5-5 teams, a chunk of them have to play each other for bowl eligibility at the end of the season. Imagine a vested and historied team like Tennessee being 5-6 (it won't, LSU is good) playing another 5-6 Vandy for a shot in. Imagine if Mizzou loses to Vandy, and Arkansas beats Mississippi State! and then Tennessee upsets LSU! We'd have 2 games with 5-6 teams on each side of the ball, scrapping it out against each other for a shot at game 13

On another note, its pretty interesting that the first SEC team (besides Ole Miss with their ban) to be eliminated from the postseason was Florida? Not Vandy or almost dead tennesse. Or Arkansas or Mizzou, its Florida to fall first. lel.
>>
also a fun thing to note, is that Florida State has Deltaco state up next before a game against Florida.

To note, Florida is 3-6, and due to a shortened season will only have 11 games, so they are eliminated from bowl contention. If Florida State is against them, then they will be playing to go 5-6 with a win. Florida State would be eliminated at 5-6, but they rescheduled their lost game, which would let them stretch to 6-6 and go to game 13. Now heres the fun part.

If Florida wins, then Florida State drops to 4-7 and Florida bumps to 5-6, their season is over. Florida State is not done. On championship weekend, they would have to dress up and march out to play LA-monroe, while the rest of the country watches the big boys duke it out.

And here, is the miracle situation. LA-monroe is currently 5-4 and about to play Auburn. So after that game, they have Arkansas State and the formerly cancelled game against Florida State. If they beat Arkansas State, then they could finish off a humiliated and embarassed Florida State in a game that nobody is watching, to use Florida State's gamble on bowl eligibility to instead gain their own bowl eligibility on Florida State's dollar.

Bama trailed Mississippi state all game and needed a 2 minute drill to put em away, then almost gave up a hail Mary on dumb penalties.

No one reamed Catholics hard than Miami outside of the clergy.

Wisky is only ranked so low because no one believes they will win out. Same reason Miami was ranked so low week before last. If they prove everyone wrong and win their remaining games, they will skyrocket up the rankings just like Miami did:

>Michigan (first of the top Big Ten defenses that Wisky faces)

>@Minnesota on the frozen tundra for Paul Bunyan's Axe (oldest rivalry in FBS and 5th oldest in history)

>BIg Ten Championship vs the Mighty Ohio State Buckeye Trees who just gave Mich State the worst loss of the Dantonio Era and beat Wisky 59-0 the other time the two meet in the B1GCG (2014) in Lucas Oil, same place this game will be

Miami didn't get any first place votes in the Coaches and the Committee put them at #3. The only people that gave Miami first place votes were 4 of the 61 AP voters, specifically:

1. (top left): Lauren Shute (who played college basketball for the Univ of Richmond Spiders) where she graduated in journalism and started out with Sports Illustrated Kids. She has Bama #2, OU #3

2. (top right) Ryan Aber, born and raised in Oklahoma City (college in Oklahoma at Northeastern State University) and writer for the Oklahoma City paper for the last decade. Oklahoma owns Bama, but Miami owns Oklahoma, so he wants to face Miami for revenge. He has Bama #2, OU #3

3. (bottom left) Bill Landis who covers Ohio State football for the Cleveland paper. He probably likes sticking it to Bama, who he has #2. He has OU #3

4. (bottom right) Kirk Bohls, a UT grad who has been with the Austin paper ever since. He hate Bama as the Texas program went to total shit after Bama beat them in the Title Game. He has Bama #2, OU #3

Ohio State should probably be in the CFP Playoffs if they win out over the ACC Champ. Ohio State would probably crush Clemson/Miami. But, good news is we can all thank
>OU for planting a flag in the middle of the Shoe
>the State of Iowa for giving Ohio a very rough buttfucking (Iowa and Iowa State went to OT, Iowa State goes on to beat OU and TCU and Iowa BTFO of the Suckeyes
>Deshaun Watson and Mike Williams (both 1st Round picks) for winning a National Title for Clemson last year as well as Clemson's status as a Top 16 blue blood ever since 1980 (the last 37 years, a whole generation)
>Da U for being dominant in the 80s in early 00s

Same reason Bama could easily get in ahead of SEC Champs Auburn this year. Ohio State is the Bama of the North and they are loaded. Look how awesome their recent players are doing in the NFL now. The smart NFL coaches that used to coach with Urban are a literally drafting Ohio State players that didn't get to shine in Urban's system and with all the competition with the other great Ohio State players because Urban tells them how good they are, and they are all turning out good

Auburn and Penn State are both Top 16 bluebloods but neither are on the level of Bama or Ohio State right now

Franklin used to fuck shit up in the SEC with Vandy, has spent his whole life in Penn/Maryland, and could lock up the state of Penn. Penn was the first dominant program in cfb, now it's big State U as the good private schools don't want to associate with football like the dumb public school kids do (with the exception of ND, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Duke and the like).

Penn (Steelers/Eagles country now) has produced, just at QB alone: Dan Marino, Joe Montana, Joe Namath, Jim Kelly, Johnny Unitas, George Blanda, Johnny Lujack, etc

And Philly alone has a black population of like 7M to 8M, which is the pretty much the combined total population of Louisiana (4.5M) and Alabama (4.5M), both white and black
>>
>>79719991
The entire state of Pennsylvania doesn't have 7M black people, the Philly Metro area (which includes places outside of Penn like Camden) alone has less than 7M people (6M)

What are you even saying
>>
>>79720139

My bad, read it wrong. Only 1.5M black people in Penn, while Alabama has 1.3M by itself. Penn not as great as advertised
>>
>>79720891

Well hold on now, Bama has to split that between Bama/Auburn, and both rely on raiding neighboring states. Penn just has to ward off ND/Mich/Ohio State/Michigan State. Penn State is still a blue blood
