“Those who stay...will get their ass kicked by OSU for the fourth time.”
298, do you root for UVA on the side? What do you think of the job Bronco Mendenhall has done?
Worthington, you nailed this. I asked a question to Colin and Dan for this week’s Real Pod Wednesdays podcast that I hope they address. I’m shocked this has gone unchecked and that there isn’t a much stronger push from the other regions and conferences that are constantly getting screwed. Everyone seems to just be grabbing their ankles and saying thank you may I have another.
I dislike Dabo far more than I dislike Hasbro. In fact, for Hasbro the better word to describe how I feel is pity.
I think this could be a real possibility, Sunny. I don’t believe OKie to be the “easy” game that everyone thinks they will be. Especially where LSU has shown a definite weakness against mobile QBs. They will not have seen one like Hurts.
Whatever happened to the mesh routes that Day deployed to destroy Michigan last year? I noticed we seem to be favoring the sideline passes that take longer to develop and are difficult passes to complete.
Colin, you spoke the conspiracy to avoid sending LSU and Clemson to Arizona into existence. Now, LSU gets to stay in the south and play for a title in their own back yard. What do you guys make of the shameless campaigning that CBS and ESPN did for LSU to be number one? Do you believe that relentless campaigning in the media and during the games creates even a subconscious bias for the committee members?
Also, year after year, the SEC always gets the benefit of the doubt when it comes to favorable matchups, getting two teams in, favorable rankings, and having more southern reps on the committee than any other region. Why does this go unchecked? What can be done to even the playing field and allow fair opportunities for other conferences to represent in the playoffs?
Yeah, maybe this will ignite a fire that will help carry us.
It’s about getting slighted compared to the SEC constantly and the inability of the committee to stick with any form of criteria that doesn’t involve benefitting SEC teams for me, not about playing Clemson. No one on this thread is cowering.
I’m with you, Tae. It’s just that us finding ourselves as the “lesser” is a problem that has gone on for years now, having been left out in 15, 17, and 18 as well with just one loss.
Lazy answer, Bobby. All that is a given.
You nailed it, Ryan.
That’s one of my major issues as well. They seemingly established the “personality” of the committee and what they were looking for...only to throw it all away and make an SEC team number 1.
I am in agreement with you now. I would much rather objective metrics determine the top four than these idiots.
Very interesting things to consider. Great points to ponder.
That is an interesting thought
Lol. While you’re whining about the post, enjoy the DVs, welfare.
What wreaks of bias is that OSU won their game by double digits and still lost their spot! Meanwhile, LSU winning by 27 was close to the average margin of victory for OSU over all ranked opponents. A win should be a win. How could an LSU win over a team ranked similarly to Wiscy be enough to overcome the entire body of work form the rest of the year? That makes no sense at all. These people seem like shit brains. Like they blew their wad waiting to put LSU over OSU when OSU showed the slightest sign of weakness. What about LSU getting hammered for 37 points and a million rushing yards by unranked Ole Miss? I guarantee that if this were reversed, and LSU had the 27 points unanswered in their game, this would have been framed like a positive on how they are able to overcome adversity, injury, and pound out the other team in the end.
I’m with you, 56. I just needed a final vent before I move on.
Yeah how could the resume be better when we already passed them when their hardest games were behind them and ours were ahead of us? That makes no sense at all! Wiscy at 8 and Georgia overrated at 4 are nearly the same. That’s not a big enough diference to overcome Penn State and Michigan, both ranked, who we played while LSU was beating cream puffs. It’s such bullshit.
Spread the word Mr. Steele
Agreed, been saying this all year. Why people on this site thought a Georgia team that lost to a 4-8 South Carolina team at home should be in the top four is well beyond me. And then for them to go on and play like trash in the SEC CCG very nicely confirmed what I had been saying. Ole Miss did more against LSU than what sorry Georgia could muster.
