I loved it too. It's a nice change of pace to see someone who knows what he's talking about actually break things down for the audience. It's certainly a welcome break from the talking heads using nothing but home field advantage and poll position (and in some cases pure disdain) to guess a winner.

Yep. This is the equivalent of your boss finding out you exceeded the speed limit (and didn't get a ticket) en route to work last year... Except speeding is actually illegal. Expecting someone to know every detail of your life is ludicrous. College students borrow money literally every day.

Well, Penn State lost, so we can root for Minnesota to go undefeated and hope Penn State stays in the top 10. If we finish with 2 (or 3?) wins over top 10 programs in the last 3 weeks, we can hopefully keep/regain #1 (LSU may jump us if they continue to rout Alabama) and have our pick of the bowl site.

What exactly have you seen from them to make you think they've had the miraculous turnaround that would be required to even be competitive against the Wisconsin team that straight-up mauled them 5 weeks ago? TTUN was legitimately down 5 TDs to nothing 3 quarters in before Wisconsin pulled their starters. Even if TTUN got 7 points better every single week since then, they still aren't good enough to win after a full 60 minutes.

Rematches are more about psychology than matchups. I agree with everything you said, but if a handful of players get the same idea in their head, it's Purdue/Iowa/MSU (2013) all over again.

We obviously have to beat Penn State for anything else to matter, but a Minnesota loss probably means a Wisconsin rematch for us. Historically, college football rematches have no upside for the team that wins the first time. I personally think a Minnesota win helps us more in the long run. Winning out obviously gets us to the playoff, but we have a better case arguing for #1 if we don't play Wisconsin twice.

The only tweak we need is for the committee to pick the 4 best conference champions. I don't need to see their "top 25". I don't care about Notre Dame. There is no reason whatsoever to have 2 SEC teams in a playoff. Win your conference championship or you don't get a chance at a national championship. If you're mad about not being in, schedule better OOC games.
