At this point, why have a season at all??? Every year, regardless of on field performance, we have the same handful of teams competing for the CFP. Let’s be honest, if OSU had the exact record as MSU and the best RB in the country they would be #1 by a wide margin. Bama loses to the sisters of the poor and is at 2??? Screw this system. CFB is a dying horse

CFB is a joke and a farce. Payers getting paid. Matchups manipulated for ratings. Even E$PN can see it: LINK

So the #2 team (Cincinnati) is really the #6 team? I'm confused...

All rigged for ratings. Has nothing to do with how good teams are and everything to do with how many eyeballs they will pull.

Bama being in and Michigan being out makes zero sense. Why I could give two shits about college football. It’s all a booster racket.

LSU beat MSU and almost beat Auburn ! Where’s the love?!? Not to brag, but we also ran for like 200 yards on UK!

Should be ranked on the present. Bama lost to a shite team. Other teams haven’t.

As bad as I hate the Gumps, if it’s about getting the best 4 teams in the playoff then it’s hard to leave them out. I do believe Cincinnati should have been there over either Oregon or MSU.

I saw Cincinnati Saturday at Tulane. They’re not that good. LSU would beat them

Yeah but what proof do we have that BAMA is one of the best teams?? If not on field performance (W-L) then what’s the proof

I agree. Cincinnati look bad against 1-6 Tulane with only 351 yards and barely beat 1-5 Navy with only 271 yards (which was less than Navy's 308. Not impressed at all by Cincinnati.

Ok and Cincinnati getting screwed. Typical Bama bias.

Bama is too high.

Wouldn’t be the Alabama Invitational without Alabama.

Seriously. Why do we bother playing a regular season if we’re just going to put teams in the playoff based on talent instead of what they do on the field. Cincinnati deserves to be in the top 4 over them at the moment. Bama wins out then they should be there but it’s bull shite they reward em regardless how they look during the seasons.

Just get the #1 ranked recruiting classes for 4 straight seasons so we can be most talented team and get in every season approach to football. Seriously this is what it has become.
