Not sure why Clemson is considered that much better than Washington. Clemson has been stumbling through the season while beating just one more ranked team than Washington. Washington's non-conference schedule was trash but they smoked the majority of the Pac12.
I like that the Vegas oddsmakers acknowledged Pittsburg. They are really good against ranked teams.
Agreed, there's absolutely no way that 3 B1G teams are getting in the CFP. In that scenario, at least one "non-deserving" team (probably Clemson) would stay in the Top 4. Quirks/Coincidences in scheduling has made this a really weird year. The majority of the top 10 has played at least one other top 10 team.
We're headed for the third year in a row when the top 4 teams match in both systems. That's the "precedent" being set this year.
I tend to agree with you. This whole process feels a lot more fluid to me. Chaos happens all the time so I'm always waiting for something screwy/unthinkable to happen.
But I also drunkenly purchased two Peach Bowl tickets after the game on Saturday because I expect/hope to be there.
I wouldn't. I'd want Bama to make PSU reconsider fielding a team next year.
Brian Kelly's official record at Notre Dame is 38-30. Charlie Weis's winning percentage was actually higher: .564 compared to .558.
Weber frosh of week

We have bigger goals
Overrated blue team fools
Get out of our way
It's surprising with the improvement of the conference that only 7 teams are bowl eligible. Those three 5-6 teams should cruise to wins next week.
That would be my preference. The B1G is just starting to get its respectability back. Both teams losing in the semi's would kill momentum for the conference.
I hope the committee sees it the same way you do. It's only been two years but a non-champion has not jumped in front of an one loss conference champion. 12-1 Washington & Clemson/Louisville would be locks. We need a bit more chaos for reassurance.
Even with these rankings we're not guaranteed a playoff spot if we win out. Remember TCU dropped from 3rd to 6th for not playing a 13th game. Right now we can't win our way into the conference title game. We're sitting pretty but still need some help.
Get ready, the winner of LSU/Florida will jump into the Top 10 next week.
The Fightin' Hermans will correct this on Thursday night.
Not using protection?
I think he was talking about the Cavaliers first loss of the season.
Hate the Badgers / like Nigel Hayes. Cool to see students/student-athletes take a stand on issues they care about. Hopefully the people in charge at Wisconsin paid attention to what happened at Missouri.
Stock Up: Kentucky. At 5-4, they still have a decent chance to clinch the SEC East in the next two weeks.
I'm shocked that he hasn't gotten more Heisman hype.
All the teams ranked below the top 15 are fairly interchanible. Parity run amok.
