If we beat Wisconsin next week, especially by 2 scores or more, I think we should and will be number 1 in the first CFP poll. Not that I want the additional target, but our point differential and game dominance, on top of the fact that we will be top 5 in both offensive and defensive rankings. The committee does look at those things and it’s really hard to ignore.

Georgia didn’t make the CFP last year. They got beat in the Sugar Bowl by the 2 Dollar Bill Hermans.

Disagree here, WorthyBuck. I think they’re actually pretty similarly matched teams with very similar styles.

That’s correct, CK. Not that I want a loss, but if we are to lose, better to lose to Wisconsin than to Penn St. We would need to get to Indy and win.

She’s a hood rat, but not totally inaccurate. Georgia wins out, they are in. Now, there’s a perception that the committee would also put in a 1 loss Alabama and LSU. If Wisconsin wins out, they’re probably also in. But would the committee also put in a 1 loss Ohio State or Penn St?  Probably less likely than the SEC scenario. So you’re comparing 2 different things here - Georgia getting in vs a 2nd B10 team getting in.

Better chance of seeing Wisconsin twice. They play Minnesota obviously head to head and Minnesota has Penn St and Iowa. And I think we have as good a chance of seeing Iowa as we do Minnesota. No matter, though. UC should be ranked at the end of the season, as should Penn St and Wisconsin. Possibly Michigan and also whomever we play in the B10. 3+ wins vs final poll ranked teams will nit be topped by anyone. And we’ve been dominant and have controlled games from start to finish. Our only “problem” is we may need to be 13-0.

I don’t disagree. That’s the biggest problem with both these polls. Not so much the bias during the season, but the weight the preseason rankings hold. You’re always moving up and down from a preseason spot.

He will probably be the odds on favorite with Hurts, Tua, and Burrow all being gone and with Lawrence having a bad 2019.

So I didn't watch in the middle of the night, but from the looks of highlights and the stats, looks like almost all of what PSU was able to do was get Hamler loose deep a few times.

They had to call the defensive holding. He grabbed his face mask badly. But the missed call on the pick was inexcusable. That guy didn’t even try to look like he was running a route. And officials are trained to look for that pick play down there.
