re: Did the Committee just kind of "give up" after the top 10? - wm72
I actually think the committee does fine with top four teams. However, what you mention about the lack of that same attention to around #10 through #25 has been my beef with them. They don't seem to apply the same metrics of playing a tougher schedule + quality wins etc to the bottom of ...

re: The BIGGEST JOKE is FSU in Orange over Lou! - wm72
[quote]This committee loves the eye test more than head-to-head or championships. [/quote] The committee doesn't even seem capable of making a Top25 in which no team is ranked below a team they beat. ...

re: CFP Committee got it right -- Resumes justify final CFP Rankings - wm72
[quote]Playoff has killed CFB. Mark my words. [/quote] It's fine right now insofar as is means virtually no chance than an [b]undefeated[/b] P5 team is left out of a chance to play for the title. The danger of the playoff is that people will continually want to make it bigger and that will...

re: Bring back the BCS and do this with it. - wm72
[quote]Lol it would be the same top 4[/quote] Yeah . . . I'm trying to understand why so many posters imply that the old BCS Top4 would be much different. I'd guess that at most the difference would be the #4 and #5 teams every few years but I really don't care that much since these team...

re: Dabo: If CFB expands playoff field, season will become watered down like the NFL - wm72
[quote]The system was designed to have a true national champion. We've gotten that we'll get that again this year. The system isn't designed to give everyone a chance. With 128 teams playing in different conferences with different rules, we'll never have a perfect system. As much as some want to tur...

re: Wasn't Bama getting into the title game in 2011 a main reason for the playoff? - wm72
I've always thought the playoff was about assuring that you never have a season where there are 3 undefeated P5 teams and only the BCS game that matches 1 v 2. That scenario is really the only massively "unfair" possibility. Alabama making the BCS game was only a catalyst insofar as there wa...

re: Dabo: If CFB expands playoff field, season will become watered down like the NFL - wm72
[quote]We have the best sport out there because every game truly matters," Swinney said. "If we keep expanding, the season will get watered down and we become the NFL."[/quote] I agree, I think people forget that the main benefit of having the 4 teams now isn't really about "fairness" to teams ...

re: Big 12 Commissioner Blasts Washington, Ohio State Selections to CFB Playoff - wm72

re: New Offenses and the Decline of the SEC - wm72
It is notable how many teams in the Top10 right now are either ones with better defenses than offenses like Michigan, Wisconsin, Colorado or ones that are at least pretty balanced. Regarding the SEC, QB play may be just as much of an issue though, which is ironic since some of the "systems" are...

re: Why do teams drop in ranking after losing to a higher ranked team? - wm72
[quote]Take the Iron Bowl for example. Auburn was ranked 13 and Alabama was ranked 1. Alabama should win. Why would Auburn automatically drop after that loss? How did losing to the number 1 team prove that Auburn isn't the 13th best team in the nation? This is just for discussion and has nothi...

re: I keep seeing the argument for "the 4 best teams should be in the playoff" - wm72
I really enjoy all the arguments about the system. . . college football has been an argument for as long as I can remember and that's a lot of its charm. If people took a step back from getting so caught up in "fairness" many would see that the system is not nearly as "broken" as many people s...

re: If PSU and OSU were reversed? - wm72
[quote]1. Ohio State deserves to go in over Penn State. 2. Ohio state would absolutely go over Penn State if the roles were reversed. You're an idiot if you believe otherwise. Penn State would get the shaft for sure. That's just how it is. [/quote] I agree. Ohio State is obviously a very...

re: The LSU loss to Wisconsin was the biggest game of the season for the SEC - wm72
[quote]I've always been a believer in the "win for the conference" mentality. It is hard to put aside our dislikes of fellow conference members, but when our conference brethren lose OOC games, it causes a big ripple effect. Forget the "it helped get rid of Miles" thoughts for the moment, too. H...

[quote]If PSU wins and Oklahoma doesn't, it SHOULD be close. Oklahoma will have lost to damn near every halfway competent team they've played and almost lost to some shite SHOWS and have been pretty horrendous for a large chunk of the year. [/quote] I agree. I think Ohio State would still ge...

re: Committee's lack of respect for LSU - wm72
If anyone's being honest and looks at how impressive LSU has been in their wins and how close all four of LSU's losses were (3 pretty much coming down to the final play) they have to consider LSU a team that is a lot more dangerous than their ranking compared to some other teams. However, there ...

[quote]50% of the top 8 teams are b1g teams. While that is "top heavy" it seems that data point would carry more weight. [/quote] I think it's carrying weight in how the committee looks at, say, Ohio State's wins. But the Big10 is so low in the computers because it is even more bottom heavy th...
