Why is the CFP committee so horrible, /sp/?
OP's can't bump the thread. It's been like that for years now.
Anyway, I'm generally fine with the rankings and glad that Baylor and TCU got penalized for their shitty schedules.
Also, say Clemson and ND make it into the playoffs. Do you think the committee would mess with the rankings so the first playoff game isn't a rematch between the two?
>only good wins are ND and buttfucking Miami
>probably going to beat a shitty FSU this week and coast undefeated because the ACC sucks
tfw I live 30 miles from the Clemson campus and everyone thinks this Clemson team is literally god
Without a doubt the committee would mess with the rankings. You think pitting college football's good vs. evil (aka Mariota vs Winston) was a coincidence last year?
Baylor has the worst schedule I have ever seen. Looking forward to seeing them get buttblasted by OK State soon.
College football rankings are and always will be all about winning streaks and "what have you done lately" instead of actual legitimate analysis of competition. How many times have we seen:
>Meh team at 4-3 goes into a top 5 team and miraculously beats them
>Same team now 5-3 and ranked #16
>loses the next week
That paired with brand-name bias are the reasons why current ranking systems suck.
We have 128 teams, how convenient that that divides perfectly into 8 16 team conferences. Just send the winner of each conference to an 8-team playoff
>but muh Bama finished #2 in the West
tough shit, guess they should have won their division if they wanted a chance to make the playoff
>but muh shitty G5 team makes the playoff
See: 7-9 Seahawks, 9-7 Giants
Then why don't the two just split? The division now is greater than ever and you might as well stop giving teams false hope now rather than string them along. The G5 literally has nothing to play for
I would prefer they split desu. G5 can have their own little playoff or something. Their competition isn't anywhere near the major conferences, so why even treat them like they're the same league?
That is the entire point
come end of the season when they're looking to keep out a Big 12 team
>b-but Bama/LSU has a win against a top 4 opponent!!
>b-but Bama/LSU only lost to a top 4 opponent!!
A 2 loss SEC runner-up >>>>>>> undefeated Big 12 team
A 2 loss Big Ten runner up >>>>>>>>> undefeated Big 12 team
Big 12 should not be allowed in this year no matter how you hold them out
that shit worked last year where everyone had a loss and the lack of a big 12 championship cost them having another game. There's no reason why Alabama should be in the top 4 this early when there are plenty of undefeated teams left.
I love this meme. LSU had a bad pass offense last year, but this year it's been solid. Not prolific, but effective.
Harris has thrown for 1094 yards, 8.4y/c, 9 TDs and 0 INTs on the year. That doesn't sound horrendous. Also, as >>63321600 said, Dural and Dupree are serious threats.
Until Baylor schedules a game against a P5 opponent, even fucking Vanderbilt or Wake Forest, Baylor should be held out. TCU could barely beat Minnesota, who is terrible on both sides of the ball, and needed a miracle against K State and T Tech. TCU is not top level competition and shouldn't be treated as such.
Oklahoma lost to Texas, who lost to everyone. They did, however, at least beat Tennessee.
Oklahoma State is in the same boat as Baylor.
The only Big 12 teams that I believe would deserve to make it if they won out are Oklahoma and TCU. For Baylor and Okie St, at least play an OOC opponent in a major conference, even Colorado or Wake Forest, or don't bitch about being lefy out no matter what you do
