[quote]Oklahoma Kansas State Minnesota Good effort though. ETA: nb4 "Minnesota won't be ranked" They aren't dropping Minnesota 8 spots for losing on the road to the #14 team. Plus, it gives the committee an excuse to justify ranking Ohio State higher (who also beat the Gophers).[/quote] ...

[quote]Among the Thugs[/quote] Yes. I would also recommend [i]The Football Factory[/i] by John King. It's fiction and the style is first person narration by a Chelsea ultra in the late 80s/early 90s. Very well written and pretty funny for all the colorful slang, it gives broad and in-de...

[quote]I wouldn't go that far, but it would take a 2011 type season for that to happen.[/quote] Yeah, I think could happen this year but it's likely going to take at least Ohio St or FSU or Oregon losing. A one-loss co-Big12 winner doesn't have quite the same compelling argument over a 1 loss te...

re: If everyone wins out still in contention, will the committee really - wm72
[quote]IF you go by what Jeff Long stated in direct response, they count the rankings of the teams when they played. That would give msu 3 wins over top 10 teams.

[quote]Did you skip where I said besides Wisconsin? Ole Miss will finish the season losing 4 of 5 and looking awful doing it. They're not even remotely the same team from two months ago. Would Ole Miss be favored over Nebraska on a neutral field? I don't think so. I'm not using the AP poll in t...

[quote]What would be LSU's best win besides Wisconsin? A 4 loss ole miss team? Wisconsin killed a 3 loss Nebraska team. That's a better win that anything LSU has. [/quote] First, LSU beat Wisconsin. . .on a neutral field That's immense and then some. Ole Miss has been considered by the commi...

[quote] Please show me where Ohio State has 2 or 3 notable top 15 wins. MSU and Wisconsin, next question.[/quote] A few of us still recall LSU beating Wisconsin. I think Ohio St gets in too but only a total fool would call Wisconsin a quality win but totally discount LSU in the sa...

[quote]Jeff Long on Miss St - "they have wins against teams that were previously in the top 25" (lol) which he HAS to say now, because their resume continues to fall and all the once "quality" wins no longer exist. So while quality wins over currrent top 25 used to matter, to justify Miss Stat...

[quote]Oregon should be #1 over Alabama. I don't see how they could mess that one up. Oregon has two great wins, and also a loss to the #11 team in the country. After this weekend, Alabama's loss will likely be to an unranked team. Mississippi State should not be #4. After this weekend, they m...

re: College Football Rankin Composite, November 22, 2014; Georgia 5th, LSU 21st - wm72
I would guess the bump is largely due to many of these polls considering point differential and Arkansas' 30pt win over Ole Miss figuring very large for them since they didn't play Ole Miss not to mention the bump for the polls that now count Arkansas as a Top 25 away win. It is a big jump i...
