If we walk away with wins in 2 NY6 bowl games and the Citrus Bowl it allows us to puff out our chests and claim dominance next year
yeah, because that sure helped us thus year
Isn’t Weber a red shirt junior?
Get rid of must if the subjectivity and expand the playoff to 8 with power 5 conference change getting an automatic bid. I use to not he in favor of expanding the playoffs or having winning a conference title being automatic because I thought it would ruin the regular season where “every game counts”....but that statement applies to everyone but the SEC where there were actually thinking that 2 loss UGA should be in the playoff, or if Bama would have lost they would have still be in....and of course last year where 2 loss Auburn would have went if they had beat UGA, or how Bama did go even though they lost their biggest game of the year
so basically don’t give me that “diluting the regular season bull crap”, if anything the season would be more interesting as the ACC coastal and PAC 12 division teams know they still had a chance this year
the only subjectivity should be for a committee to choose to best non power 5 champ, two at larges, and seeding
You can’t have a “National” title with only a handful a conferences involved
Yep, the narrative would have changed...the espn talking heads lead by Herbstreit would be saying that the unbeaten buckeyes don’t pass the eye test and 2-loss Georgia is better
Funny thing is the same ESPN talking heads praising 2-loss Georgia with an OOC schedule of Austin Peay, middle Tennessee state, UMASS, and GT next year will being saying “and unbeaten B1G champ Ohio State doesn’t deserve to be in because of our weak OOC”....and we bettter not lose a game with that OOC even if it is a close one to Michigan or penn state
No dont take the awards away.....no, you know what sucks for the fans, this crappy playoff system where the committee changes the criteria every year and the ESPN talking heads show bias...I would love for more star players to sit out there glorified exhibitions because maybe that would cause change
These games have become glorified exhibition money grabs so I have no problem with players sitting out
Exactly, I don’t care about bowl tradition anymore...these bowls have become just a glorified exhibition and should be treated as a scrimmage...play the guys who didn’t okay much this year to see what they have for next year
I am tired of the “Make then regret they screwed you over” bowl.
Although I agree that Ohio state has bad looking wins...especially the stretch when they played Minnesota, Nebraska, MSU, and Maryland... I bet if Bama had a similar stretch against a Tenn, Ole Miss, Arkansas, and Missouri it would just prove how awesome the SEC was
Oh and another thing, If Haskins plans on going to NFL next year, I wouldn't blame him for not playing in Rose Bowl. If this started being a big trend then the NCAA would adjust the playoff format
Of course the team should show up, it’s the fans that have no contractual obligation
If we complain but still watch and show up then of course the won’t listen, but if we complain and don’t watch or showup (ie hit them in the pocket books) then they will listen
Bingo, if people boycott these glorified exhibitions instead of paying to attend the games or watching on tv, then ESPN, the NCAA, and the committee will understand changes need to be made.
but if they continue to make money of this crap then why would they change. I made a thread about this but a moderator nuked it for no reason
UGA? you sound like the ESPN talking heads ...what makes a 2 loss non champion UGA unequivocally better than OU or Ohio State...have you looked at their schedule...Austin Peay, Middle Tenn State, UMASS, and GT OOC. A weak SEC east, lost to their best two opponents. Oh, but they played Bama close
Yeah, after seeing the “criteria” for the last 2 years, how in the hell were the 2015 Buckeyes not in
Upvoted and I agree
Guarantee you if Bama or UGA was blown out by let’s say the likes of a South Carolina or Ole Miss, but won every other game including the SEC championship that they would be in...wouldn’t be surprised if this is a scenario in the future...the talking heads and the comittee would be talking about how the team bounced back
Hell, the way ESPN is pushing for Georgia the regular season doesn’t matter anyway.
But anyway, You can have a stipulation that says conf champs get an automatic if they are in the top 12, if not then that spot becomes an at large berth, that way regular season still means something.
I agree that getting blown out by Purdue should hurt us as compared to OU, but not UGA
Herbstreit really pissed me off with his Georgia should be number 3 bull crap...So basically what he is saying is as long as you are an SEC team u can play Austin P, Middle Tenn state and UMASS OOC, beat up on your weak division, get blown out in a game vs your second best opponent, have 2 losses and not win your conference, but because you played Bama close (albeit blew a double digit lead) you are one of the 4 best teams an UNEQUIVOCALLY better than two one-loss conference champs
