There is very little chance we see them in Indy, as they will have to beat Wisconsin, which is doubtful
Is 40 an exaggeration-yes.
would Minnesota be competitive with Alabama—No—it would not be a close game.
Even if Minnesota beats Iowa today, which is think is a coin flip (Iowa is actually the betting favorite), there is very little chance they beat Wisconsin on the road to remain perfect.
would be nice, but seems highly unlikely.
no one was hurt.
Those rankings from Colley are ridiculous/terrible and undercut the reliability of computer polls. That is a joke.
I think LSU is the 3rd or 4th best team.
Bama would beat Minnesota by 40.
Name 4 teams that are better than Alabama with a healthy Tua at QB.
I cannot right now, and therefore I would have them in the playoff.
Still lots of games to play, highly unlikely that things will end as most are assuming now.
I believe (some) humans are a better predictor.
Running clock from the start.
It’s actually a bit funny. The same logic that has OSU over LSU would likely also have Bama ahead of Oregon or Oklahoma. It’s best team, not best resume.
Not if you rank teams based on how good they are, which is what the point of the playoff is (is 4 best).
They have a better resume, but should only be ahead of us if you think they would beat us.
I would much, much rather play Oregon or Oklahoma than Bama.
They are crummy.
I do not agree. Maybe we’ll get to see.
Because it is the playoffs with the 4 best teams.
The 4 best teams should make the playoff, even if 2 of them happen to play in the same division of the same conference.
A healthy bama would beat oklahoma, Oregon, or Utah without much trouble on an average night.
I do not.
We’re talking about the fanbase that rationalized child rape.
Not at all a surprise they think their team will beat us.
I don’t think it is a tie between bama and oklahoma/oregon/utah that a conference championship would be used to break the tie.
Auburn, the 5th best team in the SEC, beat oregon.
Yet they beat Oregon, who people are trying to out ahead of Bama.
I understand that most around here hate bama and want them to be out. And I understand that they will not have the best resume. But do those of you who say they should be out think they are not one of the 4 best teams? What team, other than osu, lsu, and clemson, is better than Bama?
i bet your answers might be different with a gun to your head. Neutral field. Bama vs oklahoma or Oregon. Who do you take to win for your life? Is it even a very difficult answer?
They just lost to minnesota.
we will roll psu.
We would beat them with chug at QB.
Assume they win out, LSU wins out, osu and clemson win out.
What 1-loss team do you think is better than Alabama? Oregon? Oklahoma?
I think they are in, and I think they are one of the 4 best teams and should be in.
I also think osu is in if we beat psu, lose to UM, and win the title game.
To my eye the 4 best teams are osu, clemson, lsu, bama.
