    Georgia beating LSU would be madness. It creates a situation where they sort of have to put Georgia in, LSU is still in and then you know there will still be a push to find a way to get Alabama in there.

    They'll try all kinds of funny math to make it work too.

    They're Bama, they will definitely be in barring something insane. Especially now with Oregon at 2 losses.

    if Clemson and OSU win out they are both in regardless of what else happens. Now if one of them somehow lose, then I can see them trying to shoehorn Bama in along with Georgia if they beat LSU.

    If Clemson and OSU win out and if Georgia beats LSU then they aren't getting it. It would be OSU, Clemson, LSU and Georgia. If LSU beats Georgia then I can see Bama being the 4th team

    If OU can make it with just the one loss and a conference title, I think they make it over Bama.

    Very pleased with the growth Tenn showed this year. Everyone predicted a 7-5 record but of course after starting the year 1-4 that seemed like a dream. But 6-1 later here we are at 7-5. Seems the players are starting to buy in to Pruit's system.

    Bama losing to Auburn wasn't the biggest surprise. The surprise was more that it was such a fireworks display. Glad Bama lost though. Them even being on the bubble was making too many people borderline suicidal.

    Not that I feel like anyone has a shot at LSU anyway though.

    So if Georgia beats LSU and OSU and Clemson win their title games like they are supposed to I would say it's a lock for it to be OSU, Clemson, Georgia, and LSU. If LSU wins then the 4th team comes down to the Big 12 or Utah if they win the pac 12 right? I would think Oklahoma is the team if they win but it's a discussion if Baylor and Utah win.

    He needs a real job like that to prove he can handle it.

    I still think he'll be a great head coach one day. He was just in over his head at USC.

    Coach O vs Kiffin too. The coach USC should have hired vs the one they actually did

    That is a big step up for him but he has been successful at multiple spots. Seems like a good hire.

    This is how I'm leaning. I like the pros - innovative offense, consistent success, very active/aggressive recruiter - but the biggest con - huge leap from AAC to ACC/Nationally prominent program - is more than a little scary. Hoping the former becomes much bigger than the latter, and early feedback has been encouraging.

    If push comes to shove between the pros/cons though, I think the tie breaker will ultimately be that I can't deny believing that what used to be this guy..


    ..will lead the FSU back to the mountain top.

    Go 'Noles.

    The CFP is obviously way better than the old BSC system because otherwise the undefeated defending national champion Clemson would probably be left out this year, however, I will say that the conference championship games sure were a lot more interesting and important in the old system.

    It seems OSU and LSU were all but assured a spot in the CFP even if they lost yesterday and as a very casual college football fan it made me flip over to the games a few times to check the score but it just wasn't must see tv because of that.

    A little bit of smack talk around these parts the last couple days as Tenn threw their weight around to get promoted to the Gator Bowl over Kentucky. Apparently AD Fulmer called the SEC and bitched when he found out we were going to the Music Shitty Bowl again.

    But I don't really get the big deal. We play in the same conference, in the same division, had the same record and we won the head to head. Why shouldn't it be Tenn instead of Kentucky?

    When the list an order of bowls for a conference thats basicly the draft order. Those bowls get to take who they want.

    This is outside of the playoff. And the new year 6 bowls I think are contracted to go with the playoff rankings to fill their spots.

    It is actually just a ranking of the order that the bowls get to select their teams. Not a ranking of conference standings. Bowls only exist to sell tickets. If a school can sell more tickets, why not pick them?

    Ok, what do we think here? The first round is tomorrow.

    I'm taking LSU over OK in a major way. And I'll take Clemson to win over Ohio St. Granted my general nausea towards Ohio St. could be clowding my judgement and I just really really really want to see LSU vs Clemson.

    Which is worse: VAR or replay in American football?

    I know it's different draft years but who would you rather have if you could have either: Burrow or Lawrence?

    Clemson got a lot of defending champ calls last night. Looking forward to LSU killing them.

    Hey Ohio state turns ONE of those 3 field goals into touchdowns then they win. You can't settle for 3s over and over and expect to win.

    It's a tough question because Burrow looks like a fucking robot programmed to throw touchdowns right now. But it's also hard not to notice he doesnt have the most accurate arm at times and that shit matters 10× more in the NFL when your receivers and their dbs are all the same speed.

    There is no really 'wrong' answer between the two, and I'm convinced they both have all the tools to be successful at the next level.

    Yes.

    Did the refs totally blow that fucking call? Yeah seems like it. But Ohio st. put themselves into position to win and didn't pull it off. Thats on them.

    Burrow literally has the most accurate arm. Ever. He is about to set the completion percentage record for a single season.

    Killer start for Lawrence.

    Their defense has been great so far, but the punter deserves an assist

    Great first half tonight. Obviously LSU made some adjustments during halftime to effectively shut Clemson down and were successful. I guess most people knew Clemson might be a little overmatched but they certainly put up a fight and unlike LSU they have a really good shot at being right back here next year...because they always are.

    NFL scouts should look at the O line of LSU as close as Burrows. That kid wants to dance round the pocket every snap, and somehow he gets it. Won't be as generous in the NFL...

    The Field Pass commentary feed for ESPN was really engaging and considering the logistics, it came off much more entertaining and cohesive than it should have been.

    Dantonio retires long after a replacement could be found, just after picking up a 4 million dollar bonus, and just before Michigan State gets hollowed out by NCAA sanctions.

    Nice guy.

    Kansas St just had Oklahoma's fucking number I guess. Different than last year though. K st had no reason to win this one. Oklahoma just rolled over and died in the 2nd half.

    The last few years MSU has been pretty awful, but Harbaugh is only 3-3 against them. The Spartans have owned the Michigan rivalry since 2008, but Michigan had won the last couple years.

    It was done after Michigan State, but this was the icing on the cake. State losing all of their other games isn't making the Wolverines look any better.

    I wonder if Jim gets fired before December and gets replaced by another Michigan alum next year. Gotta keep it in the family, don't ya know?

    A&M.

    1) 8-1 in the SEC > 10-1 in the ACC
    2) a win at home vs #4 UF > needing 2OT to beat a Lawrence-less #1 Clemson
    3) see #1

    If Bama wins (up 11 in the 3rd), it should be:

    1) Alabama
    2) Clemson
    3) OSU (despite only being 6-0, the Big Ten championship still means something)
    4) Texas A&M

    Story getting lost because who cares but Jeremy Pruitt is being sabotaged from within at Tenn. And people wonder why we can't land a big name coach.

    Toxicity.

    Info on dirty recruiting coming from within the university being leaked out to the media. This would be the only way to fire the coach and not still have to pay him.

    Dirty shit.

    The former, no; the latter, most definitely.

    We really need an eight team playoff to stop the repeated Alabama/Clemson domination, followed by the usual 3-4 teams (OSU, Georgia, B12 winner, Pac-12 winner) being considered for the other two spots. I’ve long said that the gap between 8/9 is a lot more natural than that of the 4/5 teams.

    The winners of the Power 5 divisions get automatic berths plus three wildcard spots. This year especially, why does an 11-0 Coastal Carolina not deserve a spot?

    Imagine if, back in the day, Boise State v Oklahoma (2007 Fiesta Bowl) were but one of the quarterfinal matchups for the National Title?

    8 teams would ruin the regular season even more. 6 of the 8 teams would be the same every year.

    Personally, I wish we went back to the old bowl system and then just had a +1 after the bowls. That would solve the issue like 95% of the time.

    I could easily do a "Final Four" too. But after the bowls. They have to make the bowls matter again because that is what makes the regular season matter.

    Do the bowls matter less because of the playoffs? Or because so many top players are skipping them to avoid the risk of getting injured and missing the draft payday.

    How does adding pretenders stop Alabama/Clemson/Ohio St. from being head and shoulders above everyone else?

    If you want to shake up the power structure there needs to be ways found to spread the talent pool. Scholarship limits, financial redistribution, etc. Anything to keep those top two or three programs from having the number 1 & 2 offensive tackles in a single class or from locking in top 5 QBs in endless consecutive seasons or from hoarding 3/4's of the top WRs for half a decade or more.

    I think the two are related. If you are not in the "Final Four" the games don't mean anything to the players. Players are not skipping the Semifinals.

    Notre Dame getting rolled up when the games matter. Shocker.

    Go Ohio State, I guess...the lesser of the remaining evils. If you’re going to burn the CFP to the ground, might as well have a 6-0 “National Champion” be the catalyst to this dumpster fire, am I right?

    Did not see Clemson getting beat down like this, at all.

    Justin Fields looking like he has something to prove, really wants to be drafted at 2; Jacksonville Jaguar Trevor Lawrence just trying to escape the game unscathed.

    The playoff games and national championships will be continue to be boring as hell until the NCAA somehow gets more opportunities for programs not including Alabama, Clemson, and Ohio State. They run a monopoly that doesn't allow other teams to break the glass ceiling college football has made for itself.

    Y’all catch scenes of the degens celebrating in Tuscaloosa after Bama’s win tonight? Like it wasn’t their, checks notes, sixth national title of the Nick Saban era. During a worldwide pandemic.

    Fucking embarrassing.

    What would you like them to do? Turn down all the 5 stars who wanna go play for them so other teams have a chance?

    That's why I said "somehow". I really don't know, but there is no cycle of differing champions. The playoffs hasn't given other teams access to the championship like we thought it would. Teams like Alabama get 4 star recruits willing to sit for three years to get a shot to play for them while 5 star recruits basically ignore every school outside of the SEC and ACC, with the exceptions being Ohio State, Oklahoma, etc.

    Costal Carolina probably doesn't get in under your 8 team format either. Even if you promise one group of 5 team to get in that is Cincinnati.

    Big 10 Winner- OSU
    ACC- Notre Dame
    SEC- Alabama
    Big 12- Oklahoma
    Pac 12- Oregon
    Group of 12- Cincinnati
    Wild Card- Clemson
    Wild Card- Texas A&M

    No matter how many teams are allowed in the playoff, there will be cries that the 2-3 teams that missed out should've been there too.

    I prefer them to go back to the BCS. If you look at it they got it right every single time. There was maybe one time that you could have made an argument.

    Like someone said earlier, the regular season is so much more fun in football than it is in basketball. NCAA basketball 1 plays 4 all the time it seems like and it means nothing because they are both going to get in the tournament and be a high seed.

    The BCS was decent. This system is okay. Nothing is exactly perfect and at least we are getting playoff games. I would like to see an 8 team playoff. Sure there will always be teams that say they should have gotten in but that happens no matter how many teams you let in. I don't think 8 teams takes away from the regular season like some people would think. I think more than that would. When you get down to the like top 10 teams or so typically a drop off after 8. With 8 teams the big 5 get their champs in and like someone else pointed out group of 5 can have the top ranked team in and then a couple wildcards. That gives teams from the big 5 that maybe only lose one game to the conference champ a chance to get in there. Or even possible two group of 5 teams but I doubt it.

    This was such a whack year I would have been fine without a playoff or a champion being named. I would have been fine with a bunch of bowl games. When you have have conferences starting their seasons at different times and games being missed and not a chance to make them up so you not everyone is playing the same number of regular season games it is just hard in my view to do a playoff. You could argue that Ohio State would have had a better chance had they played a whole season. Or they could have had injuries or whatever and not done better. Who knows. Just such a whack year. I know people always want a champ but with all the craziness I was just happy to see football. My Ole Miss team looked good. If we had defense probably end up with a slightly better record. And hell we took it to the champs. That was a winnable game but again no defense and Alabama was clearly the championship caliber team but what a game. Kiffen recruited some defense players so lets see what he can do with this team moving forward.

    Absolutely but at this point the reasoning to expand the playoffs isn't to make all the schools happy but to prevent the ratings from eventually dipping when the fans start to get bored of the same 4 teams every year. And in the world of football where any team can win any given game going to 8 teams would just make the product better and more interesting to the casual fan and the hardcore alike.

    I mean I used to LOVE college football but this is getting repetitive as hell and I just don't care like I used to. More hardware for Saint Nick. Whoopity fuckin do.
