If we are focused on past committee precedence – a 2 loss team has never been selected for the CFP.

I don’t think the premise is as far-fetched as this board seems to make it out to be. 

But I do believe a 1 loss Washington PAC 12 champ would still be selected ahead of all 1 loss non-conference champs (Louisville or OSU).

Ohio State is my side team.  I get to cheer for them 11 out of 12 Saturdays.

 -  '87 Penn State grad.  

But my daughter is a Buckeye senior - and she has been enjoying a historic run.

If (When) they go to 8, almost certainly there will be a "no more than 2 teams from one conference" rule.  If that had been the 2015 set-up, Bucks still may have been on outside (although committee may have given more thought to who was better between OSU and Iowa).  Things just fell wrong this year.

Did enjoy the Fiesta Bowl.

Sorry for your loss.

My mom died at 38, my brother was 10.  Open casket - he's 43 now and still talks about seeing her body and struggles going to funerals.  

My experience - and just one data point.  Good luck with this tough time.

My son to his balding father - "Dad - you still have a lot of hair"

Me  (feeling not so old) - "Thanks"

Son " but it's in your nose"

Those older teams were before my time - but agree not top notch competition. (but did beat #6, #6 and #13 bowl teams).  '94 team - beat some good in season teams - needed a better bowl match-up.  Nebraska would have been a great game.

Going forward, I highly doubt we'll ever see a Power 5 undefeated not in the play-off  - so at least it will get answered on the field.

Here's hoping Urban has at least 4 undefeated clubs when he hangs it up!

The team is just happy for a break from Boy George singing "Karma Chameleon" on loop.

Rex Ryan and Bret Bielema have an affliction for sticking their foot in their own mouths...

in Rex's defense - it's not just his own feet he sticks in his mouth.

Hate to be that guy - but Big East 8-7 in BCS bowl games w/ 5 wins as underdog.  Favored 6 times and won 3.   B1G 13-15.  Could be said for every conference - laid some eggs.  Agree 3-4 loss conference champs should be left out.  I like 4 too - undefeated team that loses conference championship should stay home.  Should be a play in game - that if you lose - you sit.

Nope, not for a long while. Coming back on the schedule for a couple years..I think in 2016. But instead of trying to manufacture a new rivalry...just play the game. (ended mostly because PSU unwilling to go home and home every year). I hate the almighty dollar above tradition (see Texas / Texas AM, Nebraska/Oklahoma etc. etc). Glad OSU/TSUN welded together.

Sins against OSU: 1 - Graduated Penn State in '87. 2- Have a #11 Penn State jersey in my closet (but haven't worn it in a long time). 3- Ohio State football is only my 2nd favorite team. Penance: Convinced my baby girl girl to apply to OSU and took her for a visit after she was accepted. She feel in love with the school/Columbus and has loved every minute of the last two years. She's become a huge football fan and watched a dozen different bowl games with me over the holidays. Sins against PSU: 1- Annoyed by Penn St. fans wanting OSU to be their rival. Penn St. has a rival = Pitt. OSU already has a rival. OSU is a measuring stick game against a great program, that should be enough.

Agree that w/out #12 at QB - not happening for Zeke. Not "wanne be's" but Brax or JT at QB would be at > 1000 yards and 15 TDs rushing stealing stats from Zeke. With ESPiN - #15`stats need to be off the charts for the trophy. However - any combo QB and Zeke makes OSU very hard to beat = repeat!
