Nah. Clemson was overrated and didn't belong in the CFP too.

Let it go guys. It’s not some grand conspiracy. Saban owns college football and his teams back up their hype every year. It is what it is.

I heard Clemson just wasn't all that excited about getting to play the lowest rank team in the playoffs. Played down to their competition.

alabama had not "earned" the right to play for the championship but because it is not about what you do on the field and its just about a popularity contest and which teams will bring in the most money, this should be enough to force an 8 team playoff.


If it's a popularity contest, then every year your 4 team playoff will consist of:

Ohio State
Michigan
Southern Cal
Alabama
Oklahoma
Texas
Notre Dame

Regardless of record.

Don't be a tard.

quote:

there is no way any conference team should be in the playoffs unless it wins its conference game to earn that right.


Then redistribute all FBS teams across the various conferences so everyone plays a similar schedule. No way you're going to tell me Tulane running the table against the likes of UConn and ECU all year is more worthy/impressive than Ohio State going through Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State (among others) and slipping up somewhere.

...except Saban's team didn't get it done this year. They lost to their in state rivals in their most important rivalry game of the year. They not only didn't win the SEC, they weren't even good enough to play for the title. Assuming that Alabama beats UGA, the conference committee is in the unenviable position of awarding a national championship to a team that couldn't win a conference championship. Not a good look. but hey the financial interests of Disney and the advertisers are protected.

Wrong.

For some reason ($$$), they try to pretend it's a useful and fair system.

They didn't get it done?

They went 11-1.

They're now 47-3 over the last 4 seasons when the committee makes their final top 4.

The playoff isn't legitimate without Alabama in it(thus far).

They were almost 100% good enough to play for the SECC

13-0 > 12-1

The playoff isn't legitimate without UCF in it.

WHY.......was the ONLY way they get in the playoff was Wisconsin losing?

If Wisky wins............Bama cant sniff the playoff...............so this just ONCE AGAIN shows how much of a farce this playoff system is.

If Clemson had won they'd be in the championship game and not Alabama

Bama had to go 11-1 to be in the position they were in.


So what about Wisconsin who went 12-1 before the bowl season?

Btw I don't think Bama should have gone this year nor Ohio State last year for a variety of reasons, but never expect a team to want to play another P5 conference in the regular season. There is no longer a reason to risk your schedule if you can just coast by on cupcakes and win your conference. Washington proved it last year, and OSU not going this year proved it as well

And this is before you get into the UCF debate.

At this point though you either think Bama should be in or shouldn't have been in. Any arguments about this are just pointless

But Bama going is actually good for everyone
If you think the playoffs are good at 4, you probably also think the four best got in this season

If you think the playoffs need expanding, you probably think Bama should have been left out and this has setup a controversy that will probably speed up that change

If Wisconsin wins, they are the number 5 team. If Wisconsin loses, they are the number 4 team. How hard is that to understand?

Wisconsin put themselves in position. Then they lost and left it up to a committee to decide who was better.

And if LSU would have won all of their games, Bama would have been out. Or if Vanderbilt would have won all of their games, they would have jumped Bama too.
