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] It's a good point and you're right that it's being completely ignored by so many people "adding up Top25 wins" in threads lik...

re: If everyone wins out still in contention, will the committee really - wm72
[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...

re: CFP Rankings Discussion Thread - wm72
[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...

[quote]I mean it's not a crazy computer ranking, just the large jump is crazy to me. 4 spots in a week after beating a cupcake.[/quote] I agree that it jumps out when you look at the overall rankings but Georgia, Ohio St, Baylor and FSU all had a mean between 7 and 8 and they still do. They a...

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...

[quote]That pitch might as well have knives and land mines in it...and you guys drew the worst match day there.

re: Has The Ohio State - Michigan Game Lost A Bit of Luster? - wm72
[quote] but I don't know a soul in the south that cares about Ohio State/Michigan and I doubt anyone out of the south cares about the iron bowl[/quote] I doubt the vast majority really care all that much about any non-regional college football rivalry when it doesn't involve 2 top ranked te...

Very nervous about Roma away in Moscow. It's supposedly in the low teens and the pitch is in awful shape. We're starting Florenzi at RB and have no defenders on the bench at all due to rampant injuries and brain surgeries. ...

re: Hypothetical - Could a 2 loss UCLA jump Over Ohio State/Big 12 Champ? - wm72
[quote]There is no way UCLA leapfrogs a 1-loss Big 12 champ. None. [/quote] Agree. I don't think they leapfrog Ohio St or a 1 loss Miss St either. However, with a couple of upsets I think the committee may choose UCLA instead of putting [b]both[/b] TCU and Baylor in the playoff. I...

re: Hypothetical - Could a 2 loss UCLA jump Over Ohio State/Big 12 Champ? - wm72
I could see an interesting debate about UCLA but I think it would take at least two more teams out of a FSU, Ohio St, Alabama, Miss St losing. At that point, if the 4 team field came down to choosing [b]both[/b] TCU and Baylor over UCLA as Pac12 champ with all those Top25 wins, UCLA may well...

re: Play-off Committee's Worst Nightmare - wm72
[quote]State would definitely get in in that case. UGA isn't getting in no matter what they do. Chances are they will have zero wins against any top 20 teams by this time next week. They beat Tech, Tech will drop, AU will drop if they lose to bama and Clemson isn't in the top twenty. Too many other ...
