Ohio St and LSU are set even with losses.

re: Any hypothetical way Ohio State gets left out?
Ohio State is not nearly that good but I doubt they lose by that much. They might lose vs wisconson tho. Wouldn't surprise me if the committee puts clemson#1 since they like Clemson. Ohio St is a joke.

re: Any hypothetical way Ohio State gets left out?
Hypothetically, if LSU loses a close one to UGA (I'm of the opinion that if the Tigers score 22 points, UGA's inept offense can't get them 23), then LSU * should * drop to number 4.

However (conspiracy theory) the committee doesn't want osu to play both Clemson and LSU, so they (the committee) will drop LSU and put up a much easier one loss team.

Now, if OSU LOSES?

They won't get dropped completely out, BUT, there's nowhere for them to hide in the top - 4.

As an aside, committee members include retired General Odierno, and ASU professor Paula Boivin. (<-- Not a typo)

Regardless of what the talking heads say today, If we lose Saturday there will be a loud chorus that we don't belong.

We must win.


who would jump us?

We beat 2 current AP top 10 teams. #11 Auburn and our only loss would be to a potential #3 Georgia. (I only use the AP because the CFP is a week old.)

Oklahoma? They Beat Baylor Twice and lost to KState. OK State is an OK win, Texas was ranked but collapsed. (we also beat Texas)
Baylor? Their schedule is even worse than OU. (Their only ranked win would be a revenge game vs OU)
Utah? A win over a 2 loss Oregon is their best win.

The talking heads may try and push us out but our resume is leaps and bounds ahead of any current 1 loss team. Honestly, Ohio State should have never jumped us.

The committee would use the undefeated regular season justification.

Doubt it, I think LSU and OSU are in, barring a disaster.

re: Any hypothetical way Ohio State gets left out?
We’re not getting off that easy. If everything goes accordingly we’re going to have to play Ohio State and they’re good. Clemson gets knocked for their weak schedule but that doesn’t mean they suck. For all we know they could play Ohio State next week and blow them out. I doubt it but we don’t really know. But we do know Clemson has deep talent and a very very top notch coaching staff.

For instance they get beat by three touchdowns and lose Fields for the year,
Why would losing Fields reduce their chances of going to the CFP??

re: Any hypothetical way Ohio State gets left out?
The committee really, really, really, doesn't want to see OSU and/or LSU lose. That would put them in a bind because including them in the playoff would mean excluding 1 or potentially 2 one-loss conf. champions (Utah, OU/Baylor). The Pac 12 and Big 12 would lose their shite. Particularly if the SEC got two teams in, one of whom isn't even a conf. champ. It would be a conclusive message that conf. championships don't matter and the Big 12 would, understandably say, "then why the hell did you argue we should reinstate the Big 12 championship game?"

Personally, I think OSU is a lock because even with a loss Wisconsin isn't getting in. LSU is a bit more worrisome because if they lose then UGA is definitely getting in. At that point you will see full on outrage against the SEC getting two teams in (again) to the exclusion of other conf. champions with the same record.

I agree. We will be screwed by this committee if we lose.

re: Any hypothetical way Ohio State gets left out?
OSU is a lock because they have already beaten everyone they played, including a blowout of Wisconsin.

LSU is almost certainly out if they lose. ZERO chance the committee puts in two one-loss SEC teams when there are multiple 1-loss conference champs to put in.

Btw, if Baylor wins, that would mean only OSU and Baylor (and almost certainly Clemson) will have beaten every team they played. That leaves one spot... for Georgia.
