And Pitt beat both No. 2 and No. 5. What's the point of this comment?
You must have missed the years Troy Smith was here then.
Also, if you're just going by ability to pick up third down, TP was ridiculous.
Saying J.T. is as good of a passer as he was as an 18 year freshman is not an endorsement. That is bad.
You're not crazy. People entertaining the idea that the B1G will get two teams with neither of them winning the conference in the playoffs when there are 5 power conferences are crazy.
People that post comments like that don't care that they're going to get -10. But he's not wrong. It's a nonsense article that is a day and half late that has been discussed a bunch already on this site in forum posts, poll questions, etc. This is the exact kind of article you'd expect to find on ESPN or SI to generate page-clicks. The comment comes from a place of frustration and it's not what we remember 11W used to be but obviously what it is becoming as it grows.
Hit the quotes thing, then i copy and paste the phrase i'm quoting. Then hit the return to add your comment. There may be an easier way but that's what i know.
All of that is good and why they are a top 10 team, but the Committee is not putting them over those other teams that will have another top win and conference championship to their name.
I don't think it's up to the Orange Bowl to decide b/w FSU and Louisville. I believe they have to take whichever is ranked higher by the CFP Committee. The other will be going to the Citrus Bowl (though if Louisville, they have a basketball game at the same time and may try to go to a different bowl).
Wisconsin has been known to lose the B1G Championship Game by 59 points before and vaulting their opponent into the playoffs.
Yep. There's almost no way Michigan gets in even if they're at 5 right now. PAC 12 champ and B1G champ definitely get in over them and BIG XII champ likely too.
Amazingly well done.
Why do people not realize this
Because coaches make mistakes like Cardale over JT last year and Dontre returning punts this year, not to mention Bauserman over Braxton and Zwick over Troy.
Who is the guy that keeps asking if Samuel running back and forth and almost losing 10 yards is a broken play?
Also, did Warinner call ttun "Nebraska"?
I appreciate you pulling this together. Could you add a column for CFP rankings so we can compare at a glance?
Here's the other thing. Unless they say there is a 100% chance or a 0% chance, who is to say their model was wrong?
Yet one you'll freely type and the other you won't. So clearly, they're not the same.
Take it easy there. It was a joke. But to your comments, any kid that is currently picking Purdue over elite teams is doing so because they want to be specifically at Purdue; that would not change. And i doubt Purdue is seriously out-recruiting all MAC teams as it stands now. Scheduling logistics is a far bigger impediment to relegation than recruiting. Also, you do know Rutgers and Maryland were added for the DC and NYC tv markets, right?
Well like the EPL, when they are mediocre again then they can be promoted back to the B1G.
Considering the former scouting director of the St. Louis Cardinals is spending 4 years in prison for hacking the Astros, I'm guessing teams want to avoid this.
Basically both have to win out and while Louisville plays a reeling Houston and UK, Michigan plays us.
538's predictions are also terrible. So there's that.
It shouldn't make you think too hard. They didn't "let" the championship go by the wayside. The only had 10 teams and NCAA prohibited them from having a championship game. They are going BACK to having a championship game in 2017 because the rule was changed to permit them to have it.
I've heard it talked about a lot. But it was more of a possibility if Michigan was undefeated when it lost to OSU and OSU won the B1G. Depending on how the other conferences worked out, there would be a strong case for Michigan. As it stands now, for two B1G teams to make it, one would have 2 losses. And unless a lot more craziness happens, I don't see the B1G getting two teams in the CFP when one of the teams will have 2 losses. It will either be a 2 loss champ or 1 loss OSU in the playoff.
I love that he's finally doing really well in the NFL. Unbelievably gifted athlete.
I'm glad you mentioned the first play as I think that helped set up these other looks. On the out route to Baugh, once Samuel motions out leaving an empty set, the MLB plays for the inside QB run that occurred on the first play. Whether he forgot the OLB was blitzing or whether he misread it as a run, we'll never know.
The other thing to not gloss over is Maryland is not good. On Samuel's 9 routes, while the DB was up in press coverage, he gave him clean releases. I don't anticipate it'll be as easy the next two games.
