The solution for choosing the playoff teams whether there are 4 or 8.

Go back and use the BCS computer system and take the top 4 teams in the ratings. It's more objective as it uses more facts to determine the top four. It still uses the polls to give it a touch of human subjectivity but not too much. It also saves hours and hours and days of committee meetings which is pretty much a waste of time. You also save a lot of money by not having to pay the &$%//(&% committee. This is a win-win result in my book.

I mentioned this once before that it seems Cincy works for ESPN as he defends them at every opportunity. Someone who works so hard to defend something must have some sort of personal interest in the matter.

Not only is he a hyprocrite...but to me it shows him to be a sour puss that has to put others down verbally that he can't put down on the field.

I usually like Ramzy pieces and he is a talented author but to me he is emphasising the fact that what Harbaugh said was true and therefore virtuous and I see the exact opposite in his comment.

Recusing while OSU is discussed is practically the same as a NO vote in my book. It might even be worse because he can't even give any arguments for OSU. Me thinks that Gene is much smarter than what people give him credit and he experienced first hand the incompetence of the committee and wanted out fast.

I agree, the committee is a joke. I think they should use the BCS computer rankings. This will save a lot of money and human resources and be much more objective. 

Comment 30 Dec 2018

I wonder though if ND was not in the mix, would the committee have chosen Georgia over OSU? The final ranking before bowls suggest this. That would have been an outright travesty.

-Buckslan.....I can not believe the DV's you are getting for your logical statement. Shows how many people in this world have no logic or reason behind their thinking.

Comment 28 Dec 2018

Your damn right it's sour grapes and justified. OSU is the only team to not get any "benefit of the doubt" arguments when they should. I have to admit they got one 2 years ago when they shouldn't have when they didn't win the conference. I think it should be a requirement but not an automatic bid to win conference to get in the playoff.
