Here comes the fumble call reversal on the reply. Gonna go Bamas way all night long.

I hope Alabama crushes everyone, honestly.  

HS

I knew this would get downvotes, but my point is that makes Alabama the clear-cut best team and maybe Ohio State is as good as any of the other top 4. Just want to get this farcical event over with.

OU bout to get routed with that D...

HS
tkrussell's picture

That was a poor use of replay. Probably wasn't a fumble, but there wasn't a single frame that showed both the football and an elbow down. Any thing other than the call stands is simply a guess. 

HS

I'm really curious to see how OK offense does. They are legit and need to prove it.

What’s the most rugged front they’ve gone up against this year? That formidable Texas Longhorn defensive line?... haha 

HS

Here’s another variance in the commitee’s “criteria”. Conferences that don’t play any defense like the Big12. No sense of reality on Oklahoma.

Here's how bad the Big 12 is... if Michigan joined the Big 12 and kept us off their schedule, they'd be in the playoffs.

That’s a good prediction for halftime, but what will the final score be?

HS

Oklahoma is not scoring that many points tonight. The looks on their faces says they have already given up and just want to go home.

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!

Philly, I hope they don’t score at all. That way, when they win the trash big 12 next year they won’t be considered for the playoffs

4 best teams are Bama, Clemson, OSU, and Georgia. 

4 most deserving teams based on what they did is Bama, Clemson, and OU, OSU, and ND are in a tie. 

8, or even 6, teams sure would solve a lot of this...

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS
chris's picture

How many competitive semifinal games have we seen? Why do we still tolerate a committee that cannot create competitive matchups?

HS
Knarcisi's picture

2. Us and Alabama and OU-Georgia. 

HS
chris's picture

Out of 10... 20% is the grade the committee deserves. This sport is kinda a joke... they should fix that. They won't and the secret reason is money, but the reality is when the workers are unpaid, you profit no matter what the system is, so might as well make a more equitable system, you would think.

HS
MiamiBuckeye's picture

This is going exactly how I expected. Oklahoma looks terrible on defense. 

Playoff should have been 1 Alabama vs 4 Ohio State and 2 Clemson vs 3 Georgia. Those would have been real games. 

"porque las estirpes condenadas a cien años de soledad no tenían una segunda oportunidad sobre la tierra."

HS
Cooper's picture

I agree those are the 4 best teams but Georgia did absolutely nothing to deserve a top 4 spot this season. Setting precedent by allowing a team in with 2 losses who didn’t even win their conference is not a good one. Need to expand.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS
Knarcisi's picture

Again, though, it’s best vs deserving. Best has been used before, when it was Alabama needing it last year. 

HS
Cooper's picture

You can use both of those requirements intuitively when it’s an 8 team playoff. Every single year there’s an argument for 5-6 teams to make the playoff, but there is an obvious drop off after the 6th ranked team.

Teams like Georgia could have deserved to be a top 8 team this year while looking like a top 4 team.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

HS
Knarcisi's picture

No argument there. I think 8 is the right number. 

HS
MiamiBuckeye's picture

I'm not disagreeing that expansion is necessary. I'm absolutely sick of this 4-team farce. 3 games is not a playoff. I don't care about the "but BOWL GAMES!!!" excuse anymore--the bowl game season was objectively terrible this year with only a few good games so far. We can still have minor bowl games, just turn 4 NY6 games into playoff games each season instead of the 2 that there are now. 

That said, if we were putting in the best four teams it would be Bama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Georgia in that order.

HS
NoVAsmitty's picture

That will be the new narrative tomorrow morning. Not saying I agree with that, because I don’t. But rather than criticizing the Committee’s obvious poor decisions, the “experts” will say there are only two “worthy” teams (oh, “but except for UGA”) and no need to expand the field. In reality, today’s games demonstrate that the Committee is broken and flawed.

Or maybe Alabama and Clemson are just much better than everyone else. The Buckeyes, with every bit the roster those two teams have, simply didn't play like it for much of the year, especially on defense. Bama and Clemson are just outstanding, and while I respect the hell out of Saban and his program, I detest Dabo and his.  If this continues, and I'll be stunned if it doesn't, I will hope that Saban beats the holy dog snot out of that clodhopping rube and his band of weirdos.

Game helping to reinforce that if the SEC championship game is decently close that the committee will be justified including the loser in the CFP until the SEC starts losing consistently in the semis.

Was hoping OU woukd play better, we should be the team playing. Alabama afraid of repeat against OSU and Clemson afraid of revenge. Damn the CFP.

Where do they get these freaks?  Jacobs is their 3rd stringer. 

HS

He might be better in this offense (with Tua) than either of the Harris boys. 

HS

Jacobs was a 3 star...from Tulsa, Oklahoma no less. Apparently Saban can find diamonds in the rough and coach up 3 stars too.

Maybe Oklahoma needs to focus on in state recruiting and stop going national.

This could be worse than OU and USC, which was 55-19.

Is it me or does Nick Saban look like the devil now?  His hair is red on the top, dark brown on the sides and when he gets pissed off and throws his headset off the hair on the front is in the shape of horns.

Surely OSU's offense could have done more than OU or ND today. Defense probably wouldn't have changed much lol

Don't count on it...OU offense is really good and they didn't do shit. Not sure our O-line could hold up

So is 3 points really better than none in this game,I’m not sure Lincoln Riley knows the score.

Hell, it looks like bama feel asleep after the first quarter.

Saban slowed this thing down, and he’s letting Oklahoma hang around.

Yep, it might bite him if they don’t get ramped back up. OKlahoma is figuring out the bama D

HS

Give Bama credit: they are getting ESPN a lot of shots of Kyler Murray with his helmet off. Even their failed drives are sustained. 

HS

Ummm.... that was a Heisman play right there.

Has Saban killed anyone on the Bama sideline yet?

Why didnt OU go for 2 to make it a 10 point game?

HS

Pretty early to be chasing points

HS
Turban Meyer's picture

Don't need it yet. FG (3) + TD (6) + 2PT (2) = 11.  If you miss now, you're down 12 and need 2 FGs and TD. 

HS

Bc 11 is still a Fg/TD game.  Miss it and down 12.

Somebody on the committee looked at all the other scores and called the stadium -- gotta make this one closer so that the fans won't be all disgruntled about all the blowouts.

Bama is just too deep.  They will wear them down this quarter.

They’re wearing them down with slants ...

Bama secondary is good, but not as good as Clemson WRs. Surtain is vulnerable.

CD Lamb owing Patrick Surtain all night.

No worries. Bama gets to throw at #11 or #6.

That's a statement when you don't even think you can get a stop on D, and onside kick it instead.

At least Lincoln is staying true to his calling as an offensive playcaller.... Just kick onsides to get his offense the ball again sooner.

So Reverend Herbstreit can give his sermon on Georgia again, and Fowler can spend three and a half hours pimping the ESPN Holiday Invitational Tournament Final. Sweet.
