re: An ideal scenario would be an 8-team playoff, but at least there's no more BCS - slackster
[quote]Well, the non conference schedule certainly does. [/quote] I don't see it. Auto bids add intrigue to the conference championships and division races. The OOC games help get teams the at-large bids. OSU's game with Oklahoma still matters in this scenario. ...

re: The Committee changed its parameters: T/F - slackster
[quote]if the BCS was used in 2014, the title game would have been Bama playing FSU. [/quote] That is solely because the humans are fricking idiots. They couldn't get over the mental block of dropping the undefeated reigning champ despite no indications on the field that they belonged. ...

re: Big 12 Commissioner Blasts Washington, Ohio State Selections to CFB Playoff - slackster
[quote]I don't get how this year confirms they messed up in 2014. [/quote] This year they didn't give a shite about conference or division championships and went with the best four teams, objectively speaking. I can live with that. In 2014 they should have left out FSU, but the outcry of leavi...

re: Big 12 Commissioner Blasts Washington, Ohio State Selections to CFB Playoff - slackster
No, justify works. Nothing that happens in the playoffs validates their decisions one way or the other. They have no business projecting what will happen, they should only judge the results at hand at that point in time. ...

[quote] No they didn't. [/quote] What objective measure would you like to use? [link=(http://www.masseyratings.com/cf/arch/compare2014-15.htm)]Massey Composite has TCU 3rd, OSU 4th. TCU also has a lower standard deviation. [/link]...

[quote]When their controversial selection turned out to be the best team in the country? [/quote] The final results don't justify their decision in any way whatsoever. Surely you can understand that. ...

re: The Committee changed its parameters: T/F - slackster
[quote]TCU lost to Baylor so they had to be behind them as they both had 1 loss...and FSU was undefeated so they were in [/quote] Then why did the committee put FSU 3 spots ahead of FSU in the rankings released today, despite both teams having 3 losses and Louisville dismantling FSU during ...

re: The Committee changed its parameters: T/F - slackster
[quote]They weren't one of the four best teams. Next question. [/quote] They had the 3rd best resume in the country, ahead of both OSU and Florida State. Ohio State eventually winning it all doesn't change the fact that OSU or FSU should have been left out. ...

re: The Committee changed its parameters: T/F - slackster
[quote]The Committee changed its parameters: T/F[/quote] No doubt, but I think the angst is misplaced. This season is just a reminder of how much they fricked up in 2014. Under 2016 parameters, OSU or FSU are left out of the final four. Under 2014 parameters, you simply cannot put OSU into the top...

[quote]I guarantee you that if Ohio St and Penn state's records were reversed Ohio state would get in because they would say they won their conference. I think the playoff committee just lost a lot of credibility.[/quote] The committee just confirmed that they fricked it up in 2014. ...

re: Big 12 Commissioner Blasts Washington, Ohio State Selections to CFB Playoff - slackster
He does have a legit gripe about 2014 though. TCU was #3 in the Massey Composite, Ohio State was #4, and Florida State was #5. Dropping TCU 3 spots in the final rankings was complete horse shite based on resume. If the committee didn't have the balls to leave out the undefeated reigning champion, they...

re: Big 12 Commissioner Blasts Washington, Ohio State Selections to CFB Playoff - slackster
The bitching about Washington is ridiculous. They won the 2nd best conference in the country. They're ahead of Clemson in the BCS computer polls. Their loss is to one of the hottest teams in the country. They deserve to be in the playoffs. ...

re: College Football Playoff Reveal Show | 1. Bama 2. Clemson 3. t OSU 4. Washington - slackster
People are overreacting with these results and future scheduling. This CFP result shouldn't change anything with future scheduling. If you want to schedule poor OOC, you better win them all and win your conference with 0 or 1 loss. If you want to schedule well OOC, you don't necessarily have...
