The AP and Media could be replaced with a larger committee with no sitting AD's.

Try to get the best of both worlds.

Comment 07 Dec 2015

I am not flipping at all. Neither of us is changing each others mind. can we just agree to disagree?

Comment 07 Dec 2015

I should have went with the BCS has more B10 in the top 6 argument.

They are just rearranged a bit.

Comment 07 Dec 2015

Actually I lied and you are correct. Must have looked too quickly. But I still don't understand why you pop in just to argue with me.

Comment 07 Dec 2015

Of course the BCS looks more favorably at the B10.Why would you even say it doesn't? The stats are posted above. Why do you follow me around arguing with me?

Comment 07 Dec 2015

Northwestern beat Stanford who is a better win than Notre Dame and a top ten team. You can't just omit that. Your are really reaching here. I am not saying VT should have been ahead of OSU last year. That is not my logic and you know this, your too hung up on winning an argument. Me saying Ole Miss should be over Bama this year would be like saying VT should be over OSU last year. I am not saying either. If VT had only one loss last year and it was to a better team and had beat a better team than OSU and had actually beaten OSU and had the same record. Yes, I would have said VT should be ranked higher. Simply put Stanford has no argument over Northwestern.

There is really no reason for you and I to debate this. Northwestern has a better resume. They do its inarguable. Despite a better resume and a head to head win the argument I hear you giving is "because the CFP committee said so".

Comment 07 Dec 2015

Northwestern doesn't have three losses. They lost to Michigan and Iowa. They have the same record. They have a better win and better loses than Stanford. Northwestern beats Stanford in everything except number of times beating USC. Before saying stop maybe check your facts. There is no reasonable argument to put Stanford over Northwestern. We don't even need the eye test because they actually played.

You must subscribe to the "they didn't play Stanford football" argument.

Comment 07 Dec 2015

See the BCS rankings posted above. The BCS would show the B10 even more respect than the committee.

Comment 07 Dec 2015

I think the the formula is to schedule an FCS opponent if you have a conference Championship game. At least until they all 5 have a conference championship game. Stanford is likely only out because of a loss to Northwestern. Why even risk it. You will always have the conference championship "trump Card". Georgia Southern and MTSU didn't hurt Bama even with SEC being down. The team without the conference championship game was ranked 4th. Would the committee had left Stanford out if they beat an FCS school instead and the only loss was to Oregon? Probably not.

I do think there are a lot of head scratching decisions made by the committee.

Comment 06 Dec 2015

i want to know why the committee see's such a big difference between Stanford and Northwestern. Northwestern has same record, better win, better losses and head to head match up. Based on CFP rankings Big Ten is stronger than PAC12. i don't know what the argument is but I feel like the real reason is they don't want to alienate the pac12.

Comment 06 Dec 2015

Stanford has a way better resume than lets say.. Northwestern.

Comment 06 Dec 2015

I don't have a particular issue with any one team. I was more trying to point out the inconsistencies. Why should Stanford be ranked ahead of Northwestern even. Northwestern's best win is against #6 and Stanford best is # 8. Northwestern's losses are to #5 and #14. Stanford lost to #13 an #15. Northwestern has the head to head win. Based on the committees rankings northwestern plays in the tougher conference. Is Stanford really better than a team they lost to because they beat USC twice?

Comment 06 Dec 2015

No the one that put OSU in 3 NC games.

Comment 06 Dec 2015

I haven't heard it mentioned but with five power conference champions jockeying for four spots it seems even less likely the mid-majors will get in.
