re: Explain these two rankings to me please. I am open to solid arguments changing my mind. - Bucks2TigerFan
You may not like this, but the committee looks at a lot of things, here is a short summary of why Wisconsin might be higher than Florida in their eyes. Florida beat #11 Auburn, 24-13, lost at #2 LSU, 28-42, and to #4 Georgia, 17-24, so [b]they are 1-2 (.333) against ranked teams[/b], played 2 FCS...

How the Playoff Committee uses Data to Place Teams - Bucks2TigerFan
First off, let me say I hate that the committee has no firm, fixed, transparent criteria that one can easily judge and see how they got what they got. I would prefer a list of the criteria, even it was 100 items long, with a weighting that would require a computer to keep track of it all, but at lea...

[quote]The real kicker would be if teams from down here had to travel up north to play. Florida going to Wisconsin to play in December. I don't think they've played a non conference road game out of the state since the Kennedy administration. Talk about jumping right into the deep end. [/quote] Y...

What an 8 Team Playoff would look like using 12/03 CFP Ranking - Bucks2TigerFan
[img] https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EK5ub8xWkAEaO26.jpg [/img] Obviously, the final Top 8 after this weekend will look different than this Top 8, but even just using just this week’s ranking, who wouldn't want to see this playoff bracket? More teams get a chance to have to win it on the field, ...

re: Is Nick Saban the luckiest coach ever? - Bucks2TigerFan
[quote]The reason he looks like a fish out of water is that the spread doesn't require a coach to be a great tactician. If your receiver is better than his defender you win, regardless of scheme. Saban has yet to find the answer for winning 1 on 1 matchups more consistently. [/quote] AN elite spr...

re: If Ohio State is #1 seed, who would give them a tougher match? - Bucks2TigerFan
If you really want Ohio State to have the toughest semi if they're #1, you should root for Oklahoma to win and the committee to drop Clemson to #4 since Oklahoma will have 3 ranked wins and Clemson will have zero. It would then be: #1 OSU #4 Clemson in the Fiesta (to prevent Clemson home advanta...
