New CFB rankings tbqh f a m:
3 Ohio State
5 Notre Dame
7 Michigan State
14 Oklahoma State
16 Florida State
18 Ole Miss
19 Texas A&M
20 Mississippi State
Here we go. There WILL be two SEC schools in the second CFB playoff.
Bama will beat LSU convincingly this week and shoot up to number 2 in the polls. Unfortunately for Bama, they aren't in control of their own destiny. That quality loss to Ole Miss means that as long as the Rebels win out, the Crimson Tide won't make it to the SEC championship. Looking at the rest of Ole Miss' schedule, it's quite obvious that they'll win out. What does this mean? Ole Miss wins the SEC, and Alabama's only loss is to the SEC champion. This is a sure lock for both teams.
Ohio State will win out, and since they're the defending national champion, they'll make it.
Clemson will also win out, and since they're a southern school they'll also make it (but just barely).
TCU and Baylor are less fortunate. Both teams will be undefeated when they meet up later this month. The winner of the game will also finish undefeated. Unfortunately for them, there is no Big 12 championship game, so they're out despite a flawless record.
The Pac 12 has already defeated itself, no team is getting in from that conference.
Notre Dame will win out, with it's only loss over the ACC champion Clemson. They'll sit comfortably at number 5 because they're Notre Dame, and will lose their New Year's Six bowl game in hilarious fashion.
And the G5 underdogs - who can forget about them? Today's poll has shown that the committee has next to no love for Memphis, Toledo or Houston. The biggest loser of the three will be Memphis; they will win out and take home the AAC championship. Despite beating Ole Miss earlier in the season, they'll be lucky to grace the top ten come September.
1. Ole Miss
2. Ohio State
5. Notre Dame
The rest is irrelevant.
Screencap this now - you know deep down in your heart that every prediction here is tried and true.
>continues to ignore MSU's shit tier SoS and performance
>"b-but muh clean record"
THEY DONT GIVE A SHIT
THEY WANT THE BEST TEAMS, NOT THE MOST FRAUDULENT
MSU is the latter.
You haven't lost to anyone embarrassing yet, but you are playing terrible teams, but those terrible teams are namebrand, so really your guess is as good as mine.
I think Tennessee will end at #19, Florida at #7, and Alabama at #1, so that should help.
look, I know you must be jealous, not rooting for a team of the Dawg's calibur, bur there is no reason to be a hater. a 9-3 Georgia team should be a contender for a NY6 bowl, but I'm open to listening to arguments either way. that's called being objective, friend. try it sometime.
WHAT THE FUCK
CLEMPSUN SHOULDN'T EVEN BE RANKED, LET ALONE NUMBER 1
WHO LET THESE DUMBFUCKS BE ON THE COMMITTEE?
They don't care that an SEC team hasn't won a meaningful bowl game in years.
They just know that SEC teams guarantee a lot of viewers.
I'm okay with this. Ohio State will win it all again. Scheduling SEC playoff opponents makes it easier.
I feel bad for Notre Dame and Baylor tho
This is all about keeping Bama as close to the top 4 as possible in November, so that if they lose another game, they'll still be in position to jump a one loss conference champion for a playoff bid with 2 losses.
They pay millions for those recruiting classes. You think they're going to leave anything to chance?

If there is another civil war, it won't be North vs. South. It'll be a nationwide conflict between the liberal shithole major metropolitan areas and the less populated, more conservative surrounding areas. Cities vs. the sticks. Niggers and feminists vs. good ole boys.
>Bama and ND above 4 undefeated teams
Might as well just bring back the BCS if it's gonna be bullshit.
post yfw Iowa wins the B1G and makes the playoffs after Mich-OSU kills both teams due to injuries
>the possibility of Oklahoma State getting fucked by Bama again if they go undefeated
Why does this happen
>Clemson at 1
>Baylor at 5
>Memphis nowhere to be seen
But the highly watchable teams (excluding Clemson) are in the top 4.
So is ESPN rigging the committee to pick teams with high viewer numbers?
Seriously. Give #1 and #2 a bye or give us the BCS. This is a joke.
>Lose to Ole Miss at home
>Same Ole Miss that got blown out by MEMPHIS
>College payoff committee
>over Michigan State
>and why the fuck is Notre Dame even #5
They almost did the impossible and won despite turning the ball over 5 times.
Alabama would beat any team in the country now except for LSU, who will win this weekend 21-13.
TCU has a better SoS than Ohio State, and both are undefeated. One is 3rd, the other is 8th. Alabama and Florida have near-identical SoS, both have one loss and one is 4th while the other is 10th.
Are you really trying to make a SoS argument right now?
>/sp/ bitching about Bama at #4
Yeah and guess what they play the third ranked team this weekend. If they win that and win out the rest of the way, they're in. It doesn't matter if they're 4,5,6,7 or whatever. You people complain about every single thing.
Ole Miss will lose one more time so they aren't a factor.
Wins against other P5 conference opponents:
B1G - 9
SEC - 5
B12 - 4
P12 - 4
ACC - 3
There is no longer any question which conference is the best. The Big 10 schedules more OOC games against P5 teams and wins more of them than any other conference.
>TCU has a better SoS than Ohio State, and both are undefeated.
That's false though. TCU has played nobody at all and their best opponent is getting dominated in the B1G West. Hawaii is better than their entire schedule
No. Ohio State is this year's FSU.
Defending Nat'l Champs.
Weak ass schedule.
QB with off-field issues
Coach who looks the other way on offenses
Make playoffs as #3 seed
This is going to happen.
they'd even find a way to let the two sec teams avoid each other in the semis.
committee knows the loser of LSU/Bama is going to drop, and want to ensure an SEC team is in the top 4 at any cost, for the rest of the season
if Bama wins they can stay in even if they lose another game this year due to "muh SOS and big win against LSU"
LSU for the same reasons
SEC team guaranteed in the top 4
kuck my shit up
>That's false though
In order of Sagarin, Massey, A&H, Colley, Billingsley, and average SoS:
53, 41, 64, 85, 68: 62nd
68, 53, 60, 60, 72: 63rd
Mind actually looking these things up before you start talking out of your ass?
>there were people who legitimately believed the SEC was going to be left out of the CFP
would this even be possible, or would Memephis atta boy their way to a single berth?? Would it be a sure thing w/ a zero loss Houston?
>t-the BCS computers are rigged in Bama's favor! It's bullshit, we need a playoff immediately!
>t-the playoff committee is rigged in Bama's favor! It's bullshit, we need _______ immediately!
If you hate this sport so much, why do you watch it?
LSU goes to #1 with a win and #4 with a close loss. If they get booty blasted maybe they fall to the 6-8 range.
Alabama jumps to #2 with a win (#1 if Clemson chokes), barely drops to the #6 range if they lose, but they can lose a lot by getting blown out at home. A 3+ TD loss could actually have them drop out of the top 10.
No bowl committee wants to take two Group of 5 schools. A bowl game is a money-making endeavor above all else, that's why a school like OU got the bid in the 2014 Sugar Bowl over other Big 12 schools, because they're guaranteed to sell their ticketed allotment.
non sec fans all we can hope for is a bootyblasting of epic proportions between lsu and bama.
if it's a close game it'll just reinforce their perception of both teams being really strong. at least with a blowout they might realize they are overrating sec teams AGAIN.
So when did our AQ overlords decide that we should be called the "Group of 5?"
>tfw the rest of the entire conference has to bend over for Toledo just so their games can be relevant
I see an unclear distinction between them, although TCU's being that high shocks me considering they have beaten just one team with a winning record and played an FCS team. I suspect that will balance out as Minnesota continues to lose.
TCU has also struggled mightily, though, which I can see the committee clearly values, as MSU has a pretty strong schedule, as does Iowa.
Remember that I didn't have OSU in my top 4 before the committee announced their rankings. I had MSU and Iowa above them.
The difference is you're talking about Boise and TCU, not Toledo. Boise and TCU are the closest you'll get in the Group of 5 schools to Power 5 (and the latter actually is a top Power 5 now), but taking two schools that aren't exactly established as Group of 5 teams that will A. travel well and B. draw a good television audience is why that matchup is never going to happen.
>closest at the time
I still see what you mean
but I'm not willing to dismiss the possibility out of hand, especially if we wind up w/ Toledo and Houston undefeated
Memphis would clearly take precedence in the other case, with dat strength of schedule
You seriously don't think that couldn't happen again? that a Mid Majorb Owl will never happen again?
It will also balance out when TCU plays all of the other top three teams in the Big 12 in the coming month. Talking about future wins or losses is worthless when taking this current ranking into consideration, as this is meant to be based on current resume.
I'm not arguing with your personal rankings, I'm arguing that the logic behind the CFP committee's rankings is widely inconsistent and seems to favor certain teams over others despite near-identical resumes.
What will be your reaction when the committee puts 2 SEC teams in the playoff at the end of the year? LSU will end up playing Bama in the semifinal and losing the rematch (again). Just watch. It's 2011 all over again.
I hear the Big 12 needs to expand. Don't you want to get in on SEC recruiting territory and absolutely kek Ole Miss in the process?
If they have two losses, they would be out of the picture. Right now they only have one loss, why should they not be considered? There are many weeks left and things will sort itself out just like last year. Bama still has a chance to win it's conference.
Hypothetically speaking, let's say LSU wins out. Due to SOS, they get the #1 seed, no questions asked. Bama can conceivably only sneak in as the #4, which would match them up with LSU in the semi final.
Is that a legitimate scenario? A 2 loss Bama team facing an undefeated LSU for a title berth having already lost to LSU at home?
I'm gonna have to assume they punished TCU and MSU for the way they won games since they both have two games they should not have won, while OSU hasnt had anyone come closer than a touchdown to them
glad I decided to stop giving a fuck about NCAA football years ago. ncaa is rigged, and this committee shit is pretty bad. Not bcs bad, but it's still bad. 4 team playoff is meh, wish it was 8 or 12. no one could really bitch then. fuck ncaa.
nfl where the big dogs eat
No, it is not. The stupid shitposters here would lead you to believe that, but it would not happen unless a bunch of crazy shit happened and almost every other team in the top 10 started dropping games left and right. If Bama loses again, they are out. It works itself just like last year. Remember that first CFB ranking? Yeah, now look at the final one before the playoffs.
You're going to call my posting "illogical" when we just saw the "logic" of the first CFP rankings?
I'm not the madman of the night
A bama team that lost to a poopshit 2 loss Ole Miss team, played Tennessee and others close, and had Middle Tennessee community college and friends scheduled, is ahead of like 5 undefeated teams at #4
I don't even know what to believe
you are one dumb cock sucker. last year on that last week they showed that they will do anything and that the season rankings are pretty much moot and meaningless. they shuffled that shit on the last week desu senpai. eat shit. ncaa is rigged
>college ball is rigged
>NFL is pure as driven snow
but how far will the committee drop bama when they lose? the artificial ranking is bullshit because it keeps them ahead of teams they have no business being ranked ahead of in the first place. it may not matter for the playoff but it does matter when it's time to schedule the bowl games.
They'll still be ahead of Florida for sure
If quality of wins and losses mattered, they'd be behind Florida now, so I see no reason why losing to the THEN undisputed best team would cause them to drop.
Because Big 12 football isn't real football. It gets an unfair advantage in the rankings because they have to play each other so some of the teams have to get wins.
It's not the SEC you fuckwits. It's BAMA. It always has been. Everyone else in the conference is ranked exactly where they should be. The outlier is the giant elephant with the methamphetamine lab in it's trailer.

>once against people underrate you because your sos isn't good enough or your wins aren't "pretty" enough
see where I am going with this? top to bottom OSU has the most talent and with Barrett at QB (he will be back), they won't lose. So go ahead and overrate shit Clemson and a weak Alabama. Their time will soon come
Because in November you're faced with the SEC who plays a lot of their better conference games early, the Pac 12 which also does this, and compared to the extremely backloaded Big Ten and Big 12 schedules. How do you make sense of the Big 12 so far? You can't
You know what? This actually works out better for me, ya know? Might get another bowl game with Ole Miss, ya know what I'm sayin'? Why should I be mad? At least this time they didn't keep me in the Top 4 for a month just to drop me out at the last week for no reason. I just wish I hadn't wasted non-conference scheduling spots against teams like Arkansas and Minnesota.
It ain't like I'm gonna be sittin' up every night at the window askin' "when's the playoff committee going to give me a shot at a national championship?." The playoff committee wasn't there to put me in national championship games, but I won 3 of them, didn't I? I won the Men's Gymnastics championship without them. I won Cross Country, Swimming, and Equestrian titles without them. I had 5 great championships in Women's Bowling without them, they never even sent me a damn card.
TO HELL WITH THEM!
a lot of football left to play. remember they mistakenly believed the sec hype last year too.
they haven't been challenged yet. once again though they'll run over a weak Michigan St, play close to Michigan in Ann Arbor but beat them and then go into the playoffs and use their superior talent once again to overpower all foes. too easy
reminder that Florida has only won one game without the help of steroids

really though, what has harbaugh ever won?

However, if you really want to live out your redneck fantasy feel free to do so, then the police can kill you and freshen up the gene pool a little bit.
I had the top 3 pegged as Clemson, LSU, and Ohio State, but I had no idea how to rank them honestly. Bama was out of left field for me.
Can't wait to watch all the backtracking and acceptance of LSU semen once they storm through bama.
Will be hilarious.

Why you guys all booty-blasted over initial rankings? These will sort themselves out as the unbeaten and 1-loss MUHSEC teams cannibalize themselves over the next few weeks.
Works for me. It gives WVU a short-distance travel partner as well.
We talked a bit about this last night. Who else should come on board? I'd like to see BYU, but don't think they will join a conference until there's not much option for them. Any team from the ACC is very unlikely. So how about

At least the other games wouldn't be terrible. It'd be interesting to see how a Meme 12 offense does against an "elite" SEC defense.

Michigan State has normally been playing down to their opponents' level this season.
Nebraska has one of the worst Passing defenses, something like 120th. So the expectation going in is that Cook should be putting up career numbers this Saturday.
As a Nebraska fan, though, I am eternally hopeful and am rooting for Mike Riley to succeed.
Hopefully, this will turn out to be one of those "giant killer" games that Mike Riley sometimes pulled out of his ass while at Oregon State. But, more than anything I would prefer Nebraska to upset Iowa. Especially because I'll be at that game.
what happened to the old days of college football when notre dame would win championship after championship and pull all the best negro boy recruits and they would fuck my daughter and i would talk to them about it after and jack off

TTU grad and fan here. Baylor is the most complete team in the conference. They're gonna win out. TCU squeaked by Tech, Tech choked the game away to OSU, OU got Tech at home and didn't handle them any better than Baylor did at a neutral field.
