Norvell telling it like it is

They won every game put in front of them. They did it on the field. If these other teams are so great and talented, why didn’t they do it on the field?

Said he expects to be in the playoffs.

They played a harder schedule.

This isn't rocket appliances.

Because FSU can control their conference opponents

re: Norvell telling it like it is
Every time some team wins a shitty conference they've made the same argument. It was stupid when it was Boise State/Hawaii/TCU and it's stupid with FSU in the shitty ACC.

Pretty simple. Pretty easy choice. I don’t see it playing out any other way

re: Norvell telling it like it is
Come on man you know that’s disingenuous.

They nutted up and scheduled LSU and beat our arse then ran the table in their league that’s designated as P5 by the committee. Thats not remotely the same as a Mountain West champ

re: Norvell telling it like it is
Norvell just coached his team to 16 points against the worst QB of the day. 55 yards passing by QB3 won't get it done against ANY playoff contender. And YES, I know QB2 will be back but he's only slightly better. They're not beating a playoff team with EITHER of their QB's not named Jordan Travis.

I would feel the same about LSU. W/O JD5, we have no real shot at beating any playoff team. Yea, we could beat some mediocre teams but nobody of real significance.

ACC is no worse than the pac12. Undefeated power 5 conf champion should be in. Period.

3 undefeated power 5 conf champions
1 loss who beat sec champ on the road by double digits.

SEC needs to watch this year from the bleachers.

They scheduled two SEC teams, and beat them both.

Yes this is a completely different argument with Travis.

It sucks and is bad luck, but that happens in life sometimes.

Pretty sure the shitty ACC owned the very obviously down SEC head to head.

re: Norvell telling it like it is
So why have backup players? They don’t deserve to play, compete, and win.

Let’s just eliminate any team who loses a starter.

So if Milroe goes down in practice, should bama automatically forfeit?

No it’s not. Mid teams beating up on each other. ACC had winning record against the SEC and B1G

Michigan just mustered 12 whole first downs against Iowa with their starting QB. FSU has a really good defense. They could easily give anyone in the CFP a game

Do people really not realize how stupid of an argument this is? No matter who you put in two playoff teams are going to lose to other playoff teams.
