Comment 02 Dec 2014

This is protection against us winning ugly, despite Cardale.    That happens, committee says "can't drop an undefeated FSU out of the 4 spot".

If we win decisively and Cardale looks good, they say:   FSU and OSU move up a spot because they beat top 15 teams and won an outright conference championship.   TCU fans left crying real tears.

Comment 02 Dec 2014

if they truly put everything on the table each week, TCU adds nothing,  FSU and OSU add top 15 wins and sole conf championships.   I think TCU fans are going to be in shock next week.   Shouldn't have blown a 21 pt lead with 11 minutes left in the game if you wanted to make it out of a weak conference with no conference championship game.

I think this is to buffer against OSU winning ugly despite Cardale.   Then, it lets them leave us out.  If we win decisively and Cardale looks like a real QB, I think FSU goes back to 3, OSU goes to 4.

Comment 02 Dec 2014

Next week we'll find out if the committee cares about conference championships or not.   TCU being 3 with 1 good win all year should not be ahead of an undefeated team or a team with 2 good wins (assuming we beat Wisky).  The big 12 is garbage.   Their 5th best team is 6-6 texas and after watching them on Thanksgiving, it's amazing they won 6 times.

Comment 02 Dec 2014

we may or may not get in, but no way TCU stays at 3 if FSU wins.   Long basically said they were close between 3-4.   FSU adds a big win and conference championship (which he said have not been considered yet) and TCU adds a junk win and co-conference championship.

Comment 02 Dec 2014

I could still see TCU falling out after this week.   Both FSU and OSU would add top 15ish wins and undisputed conference championships.   TCU will add a big win over Iowa State and potentially a loss to their biggest win of the year in KSU.   

Comment 28 Nov 2014

I would put our Minny, MSU, Wisky wins and early VT loss against:

Miss States:  Ole Miss, ?, ?  wins,  Bama loss

TCU:  KSU, Oklahoma, Minny wins, Baylor loss

How in the hell is Miss State 4?   Their resume is pathetic.   

I didn't do Baylor because the committee hates their OOC schedule and they aren't jumping us by beating KSU when we have Wisky left.

Comment 28 Nov 2014

Miss State's vaunted resume:

southern miss:  3-8

UAB 5-6

Southern Alabama 6-5

A&M 7-5

auburn 8-4 (pending Alabama loss)

Kentucky 5-6

Arkansas - 6-5

UTM - 6-6

Ole Miss 8-3 (pending Miss St loss)

So everyone they beat will have 5 losses except for Ole Miss with 4.   Miss States best win is their 5 point loss to Alabama that everyone agrees was not nearly as close as the final score.   Furthermore, I hope the committee doesn't reward them for playing for the "close loss" at the end instead of trying to win.

Comment 28 Nov 2014

TCU's vaunted resume:

Samford 7-4

minny 8-3 (pending hopefull loss to Wisky)

SMU 0-10

Oklahoma 8-3 

Baylor 9-1  LOSS

OK State 5-6

Tex tech 4-7 (pending loss to Baylor)

WVU 6-5

KSU 8-2

Kansas 3-8 (pending loss to KSU)

Texas 6-6

Just like Miss State, no conference championship and no extra win.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

Win and we're in.

Baylor - OK st (5-5) -  Tex Tech (3-7) -  KSU (a win against them is nullified by our Wisky win) - We will stay ahead of them.  

TCU - Bye - Texas (6-5) - Iowa state (2-7) - We will pass them on the strength of one extra win and another top 15 win.

Miss St - Vandy (3-7), Ole Miss (a win against them is nullified by our Wisky win) - We will pass them on one additional win and a true Conf Championship.

Assuming everyone wins out, here is my best guess:

1) Bama 2) Oregon 3) FSU 4) OSU 5) Miss St 6) Baylor 7) TCU

Comment 16 Nov 2014

Miss St's schedule is starting to look pretty weak.  Assuming Auburn loses to Bama and Miss State (maybe) beats Ol Miss:

Ole Miss - 3 losses

A&M 4-5 losses (pending LSU game)

Auburn - 4 losses

LSU - 4-5 losses (pending A&M game)

They will have a good loss though, lol.

They may be 4 this week, but the championship game bump will push us past them.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

I think they stay 4.   Their loss is better than ours.  That being said, if we win out we have wins over MSU, Wisc and a conf champion after our name.  They have a win agains Ol Miss, Auburn and no conf champion after their name.  Also in our favor, Bama should end up being #1, so the committee would be setting up a rematch if they leave them in ahead of us.

I'll stick with my original prediction of the 4 teams from a month ago:  Bama-Oregon-FSU-OSU.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

As long as we eventually move over Baylor/TCU, we're in.   No way they keep a conference champ out over a 1 loss non conference champ.

If that happens, a loss by oregon, fsu, bama, miss st guarantees we're in.  But, as I previously mentioned, I don't feel the SEC will get 2.

Comment 12 Nov 2014

If Baylor and TCU win out, Bayor is the Big 12 champ.  Are they really going to put a non champ from a conference that doesn't even have a conference championship in over a champ with similar resume.

I agree that right now, they like TCU and Baylor more than us.  However, they aren't assuming conf championships in these rankings.

We'll be up to 5 or 6 by the last weekend.  We beat Nebraska and they committee will pull the rug out from under TCU (non champ) and Baylor (terrible OOC schedule).    The parenthesis is their cover for the real reason:  $$$  - midwest TV sets and butts in the seats.

Comment 11 Nov 2014
We'll be 6 by default going into the championship game. We need Nebraska to win out. We win that game and we jump Baylor (garbage schedule) and tcu (non conference champ). We will be one of the best four conference champs. Hopefully a minny win pushes us past Baylor next week.
Comment 10 Nov 2014

Don't forget the championship game bump.  If the committee hasn't been lying all along, teams get credit for wining a conference championship.  As long as we are 6 by that game, I'm feeling good about jumping the Big 12.  As a poster above stated very nicely, our resume against Baylor's is pretty even.   When in doubt go with the money and the fans that travel best.   

Bama - OSU

Oregon - FSU

Let's go!

Comment 10 Nov 2014

great post.   The committee has said conference champions and head to heads matter.   TCU will be at a disadvantage to Baylor in both.

I would argue that OSU has the edge in the conference champ category because ours is decided by a game.  Theirs would be decided by a tiebreaker, albeit with the team they beat.

I think they go OSU.  The Texas TV market is covered by the SEC team.   You get Florida, SEC country, the West, and midwest with FSU-SEC survivor-Oregon/ASU - OSU.

Don't ever forget to follow the money.

Comment 09 Nov 2014
The committee has said being the conference champ is key. Get ready for osu to pass Baylor and TCU after that game. Tcu won't be a conf champ and our resume is stronger than baylors. Also don't forget about the money. They aren't going to leave the entire Midwest out of the playoff. Too many eyeballs to ignore.

grown man football.

Comment 09 Nov 2014

1 loss FSU is out.  The ACC is terrible.  FSU is not the same team that won it all last year.   They are finding ways to win.
