i cant count how many times i heard the same talking head discuss Lsu's dominate win over Bama and then acquiesce to the thought that BAMA very well could have won that game. ALL IN THE SAME BREATH.
a faster way is to leave them out.
i hate the love fest with Bama, Georgia and the SEC and i dont think they should be given the BOD when it comes to the final four. HOWEVER, Someone needs to step up and take this BOD from them and frankly no one else has. I think Minni and Baylor have the opportunity of a lifetime in front of them but i also feel they will blow it. As for anyone else. Really we would be doubting and debating anyone else fortunate enough to be in spots 4, 5 and 6 right now. If you are anyone else than OSU, Clemmy and LSU right now, everyone else looks like a misfit
they better save this game for the last game because these are the two bets teams BY FAR
Oh i wont be mad either, wont lose any of the sleep i already aint getting enough of either. LSU deserves every ounce of credit they get but just because an inferior team chalks up a win against another inferior team does not mean they are now better than a superior team. Now, how do i know who the superior team is? Well, this committee told me that LAST WEEK before they improved on that thought.
i do not think the committee is involved with DESERVED. If we were better than both of them last week, after what i saw Saturday, we must still be better than both of them or worse than both of them. Which is it?
if LSU jumps us now, it will tell me that the committee is doing things to appease people and networks. They would have had a plan all along to move the BAMA/LSU winner up just as they figured PSU over Clemmy was a safe bet knowing that it too would have to change after our game. I can not tell you if LSU is better or more deserving but these are the same people that actually did that. Changing now would point out their own contrived inconsistency.
Who in OHIO thought it wise to have their kids wear Michigan Uniforms?
Personally i think we stay number one for the very same reason we started number 1. The committee pays attention to statistical dominance and we improved on that metric while both LSU and Bama simply proved that if they played again Bama would have the same probability of winning that they had going into Saturday.
The whole game will be warm up time.
i am trying to resolve a statistical issue myself.
What is more impressive? Our average halftime scoring margin being 27 points when already rotating first and second team players or our second half scoring margin of 15 points when the benches are cleared and the urgency is gone.
Stats are based on what did happen and not on what will happen. i will wait for the facts to come out,
simple: Have a few show up on a given day and time where sales are weakest. That is merely all you need to do. Packed house.
