I agree, although I imagine the pitch last year was we will get accepted into the Big12 and can compete for National Titles just like TCU nearly did. 

Comment 27 Nov 2016

I agree that the business is a bummer for the kids sometimes. But anyone who signed in his last recruiting class, including Ed Oliver, should realize there is a good possibility he won't be there for long.

That pretty much goes for any recruit committing to any non top 15 program. If your team wins he gets a better offer, if the team loses he gets fired. Even at top programs coaches who lose too much get fired and those who win can go to the NFL or retire.

I would call Ok State mathematically eliminated. 

They can't move past Bama even if Bama loses

They can't move past Ohio St

They can't move past the B1G winner

They can't move past the Pac12 winner

Game over. They are playing for a New Years 6 Bowl game and Big 12 championship, which are nice prizes.

Comment 27 Nov 2016

We don't get extra practices. Since we didn't make the BiG championship game there are no practices this week. That's the disadvantage of no playing in championship week. 

Comment 27 Nov 2016

I agree Bama, OSU, Clemson, & Mich are the best 4 teams, but I think Michigan has little chance of making the playoff. But perhaps the committee will tip their hand this week. I assume Michigan will be ranked #5 this week, but slips after championship weekend. 

Comment 27 Nov 2016

I agree completely. We are in a fierce battle with Clemson to see who is #2 and who is #3, which really really matters because...um the uniforms. 

Clemson is only a 8.5 point favorite over Va Tech and Washington is a 7 point favorite over Colorado. There is almost a 50% chance that at least one of Clemson or Washington lose. If either loses the B1G champ gets in. Both lose and now we have some interesting chaos. Would Colorado or Oklahoma make it in?

Comment 19 Nov 2016

If any of the one loss teams lose this evening it helps our CFP chances which are already very good. I would like to get them as close to 100% as possible assuming we win next week. Although I doubt West Virginia could leap ahead of us, if they win it also removes a win against a top 10 team as OU will fall in the rankings.

Comment 13 Nov 2016

I disagree. Louisville is the better team. They lost a very close game on the road and have performed better than Clemson against most common opponents. Louisville would be the favorite if the two were to play on a neutral field next week.

Having said that I have no problem with Clemson jumping Louisville if Clemson wins the conference.

5 teams that control their own destiny:

Bama, Clemson, UM, OSU, Washington

Teams that control their own conference destiny and just need a little help to be a playoff team:

West Virginia, Auburn, Florida, Wash State, Colorado, Wisconsin - all of these teams other than WV would be 2 loss conference champs if they win out. 

Louisville still has a shot as a non conference champ especially if Va Tech/North Carolina beats Clemson in the ACC conf championship game. For this reason I don't think Va Tech or North Carolina can make the playoff - even if they win out Louisville or even the Clemson team they just beat will be more highly ranked. 

That's a total of at least 12 teams that have a shot with only a mild amount of chaos. 

Comment 23 Oct 2016

Although Brown is a solid receiver, he would normally be a #3 or #2 type option for us. Not trying to dis our only reliable WR, just in comparing him to other #1 options at OSU, he is not nearly at that level yet. 

Comment 16 Oct 2016

True freshman aside I disagree. I don't think we have any WRs that will be round 1-3 draft picks on our roster. We have some fast guys who are not particularly special WRs.
