    So what is the statute of limitations on that 2016 CFP loss to Clemson then?

    Seems like another standard OSU is held to and other teams, from other conferences that have a different financial relationship with ESPN, are not.

    I agree....imagine if they let us in the Playoffs WITHOUT A CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP in 2015....

    They hadn't come that far in their idiotic thinking at that point and missed out on the class that really had the BEST argument with one loss to MSU.

    And therefore, 12 of our team members left for the NFL without a second consecutive National Championship

    EDIT: LOL we're behind and noticed someone just mentioned that

    I don't care what anyone says....Clemson is the team these asshats should be questioning. Going 13-0 against fucktards like North Carolina or even Boston College.

    Dabo Swinney and his ugly face did exactly what he set out to do this year, manipulate the committee and everyone else into thinking high scores = CFP berth. They've been there before, right? And won? Well sorry, Dabo your plan is about to backfire. My only additional wish is @ the end of his game as a loser he should be punched in the face.

    Btw.... I do think Clemson does have a good front seven. Maybe. Still hate them.

    ND is this x100. The only redeeming thing about Clemson is they killed practically every opponent other than Syracuse, and they won 13 games + a conference title. ND played a similar schedule (a little tougher bc TTUN) but won games where they had common opponents with OSU, Clem, and UCF by much less.

    I can live with 5. Whatever. But 6? That's basically saying even if OU lost yesterday, Georgia would be in instead of us. Absolutely insane. Nope not watching a single second of CFP this year. SEC once again will have a losing record in the bowl games but for some inexplicable reason will still be seen as the dominant conference going into next year. While B1G will be seen as equivalent to the PAC 12 despite the former nearly going undefeated in bowl games.

    Fuck the committee, fuck Delaney for being a spineless useless representative, and shame on Schiano for being unable to put together a marginally functional defense when we had the best passing offense this conference has ever fucking seen. 2 tackles for our starting LBs yesterday is not gonna cut Mr. Schiano.

    Whew ok I got that off my chest. I'm good now.

    That's my point though, if the criteria for a team getting in is "most likely to win two playoff games", why is that extreme? If Alabama had lost to Louisville, Mississippi, and Texas A&M, would they still not have the GOAT coach, NFL talent everywhere, and a ton of dominant performances? Why keep them out when they would still be more likely to beat Oklahoma, Clemson, and ND than anyone else?

    A conference championship requirement helps clarify a process that's never going to be perfect. Uneven divisions aren't any less fair than uneven conferences.

    But that was a white defender hitting a black quarterback. Obviously just a football play there.

    Choose one:

    - a 3 loss Alabama

    - Alabama with a GOAT coach, NFL talent everywhere, and a ton of dominant performances.



    Alabama hasn't lost 3 games in 8 years.

    I think an Alabama team that accumulates 3 losses under Nick Saban clearly has fundamental flaws and talent deficiencies. A 3 loss Alabama this year, for example, would not be viewed as likely to beat OU, Clemson, or ND.

    My hypothetical was a 2 loss Alabama, because I can see a dominant team dropping 1 in the regular season (i.e. OSU 2015) and losing a CCG. I can't see a 3 loss team as ever being regarded as dominant.
