What kills our SOS was our B1G West schedule. We played 2 5-7 teams who went 2-6 in the B1G. Bama will have played the top 3 teams in the SEC West after Saturday. Those teams will finish 10-3, 9-3, and 8-4. If we had the same record but notched wins against NorthWestern and Wisconsin instead of Illinois and Minn, we'd have a much better chance of staying ahead of UNC & Stanford should UNC pull the upset.

Little Bosa is a likely redshirt due to the fact that he will start the season still recovering from the ACL injury. 

Comment 30 Nov 2015

That's partially what we had with the BCS computer formulas. I think the committee can do a better job. 

Comment 29 Nov 2015

Bama beat Miss State who was ranked today but will fall out of the rankings and they beat LSU, Georgia, & Wisky by big margins. Wisky & LSU will be ranked next week with their wins and several losses by teams in the bottom of the top 25. Arkansas, Tenn, & Texas A&M are all solid wins (better than any win we have other than Michigan).

Comment 29 Nov 2015

Stanford has 0.0% chance of moving past us. Our win was far more impressive today and they will play a 4 loss team they already beat in the conference championship game...that won't add much to their resume. The fact that one of their losses is to a B1G team doesn't hurt either. 

Comment 29 Nov 2015

Just taking a guess, but I think Clemson will be no more than a 6-7 point favorite over NC. I'd give NC at least a 1 in 3 shot of winning.

Playoff scenarios
Bama Wins, Clemson wins
1 Bama
2 Clemson
3 Oklahoma
4 winner MSU/Iowa

Bama Wins, NC wins
1 Bama
2 Oklahoma
3 winner MSU/Iowa
4 Buckeyes

Florida Wins, Clemson wins
1 Clemson
2 Oklahoma
3 winner MSU/Iowa
4 Buckeyes

Florida Wins, NC wins, hell gets very icy
1 Oklahoma
2 winner MSU/Iowa
3 Buckeyes
4 NC
In all the above scenarios the committee could swap spats with B1G winner and Oklahoma.

Why I think we will be ahead of NC even if they beat Clemson:
* we destroyed Va Tech, they needed OT
* they played 2 FCS teams OOC
* their loss is a really ugly one to 3-9 South Carolina
* they played 0 bowl eligible OOC teams, we played 3

Comment 28 Nov 2015

We will need either Florida to upset Alabama or NC to upset Clemson but not by too much to get in. 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

The announcer is an idiot. If everyone wins out ND is left out of the playoff. The committee pretty much already announced that with their rankings last Tuesday. 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Our biggest problem is not when we lost but who we lost to. Not playing in the conference championship game is killing our playoff chances. 

Comment 27 Nov 2015

Agree, but against MSU it's hard for anyone to get touches when you only get 3 plays per possession and 1-2 of those plays are QB runs. 

Comment 26 Nov 2015

PSU is an 11 point underdog which translates into about a 20% chance of winning. 

The line on OSU v TSUN has swung significantly. After the initial overreation to our MSU loss TSUN quickly moved to a 3 point favorite. Now we are the 1 point favorite. 

If we win, worst case scenario we go to a New Year's 6 bowl game. 

Comment 17 Nov 2015

This is probably the committee's worst nightmare. That 4th slot would be a very close call between 3 teams - similar to last year. Style points could well factor in in that case. 

Comment 17 Nov 2015

Most years there is a significant amount of chaos in November. Last year was an exception which put more pressure on the committee. I think there is at least a shot of one of the Baylor-TCU-NC getting in...but they would need to win out and would at the least need an ND loss to Stanford. 

Comment 15 Nov 2015

Hard to say what would have happened if Baylor had their starting QB. Still wouldn't have helped their defense, but could have conceivably produced a couple more scores.
