Georgia being ahead of Penn State only makes sense to me if you consider the wins Auburn and Florida far, far superior to wins over TTUN and Iowa. That's the only way because a road loss to Minnesota is far, far superior than a home loss to South Carolina.

And thus Georgia does not belong in the top 4. You either put Minnesota in the 4 spot or you put Oregon. Neither Georgia nor Alabama belong there.

Rooting for a blowout one way or the other in this week's edition of the Game of the Century; this would increase the likelihood of only one SEC team getting into the playoff, especially if the winner of this game wins the SEC.
Rooting for the Demon Deacons of course. And I think playing a one-loss Minnesota team (their loss to PSU) in the B1G championship game would be better than getting a re-match with Wisconsin.

This could get interesting. Why not just make college athletics follow the Olympics model with some regulation to limit companies/ boosters from giving money to players to come to a specific school.

Former Buckeye and current House Rep Anthony Gonzalez has proposed a federal bill similar to the CA law.

I'm here. I appreciated the comments. I got to my seats as the band just entered the stadium (missed ramp but saw Script Ohio); I'll blame the people I was with, they walk SO SLOW!!!
