    When you have to try to talk up Syracuse, you know the schedule is that bad.

    They arent bad but they are about your standard run of the mill middle of the pack of the conference P5 team.

    Do you even "eye test", bro?

    ESPN will blab repeatedly about "the 4 best teams", "eye test", "dominance in game control" and other BS in order to knock out 1 of the 4 most deserving teams for Bama. It's safer for tOSU if Bama beats everybody.

    I just don't think that dog is going to hunt this year if teams have a similar resume, equal number of losses, but someone doesn't have a conference championship. Had OSU not gotten destroyed by Iowa, they probably would've gotten in over Bama even with two losses just because everything else was in their favor. If it does happen then the B1G, Big 12, and Pac-12 need to pull out of the CFP post-haste and either create their own CFP or go back to polls awarding NCs because it'd be clear that the fix is in.

    I am still using the fuck job OSU took in 2015 as my personal point of reference.

    Eye test wasn't used to let the defensing NC, and clearly most talented team in America, into the playoffs that year because they weren't conference champs due to a 1 point, last minute loss in an extreme bad weather game.

    Then 2016 and 2017 they don't let the B1G champ in.

    Seems only one conference gets punished for a single loss and it doesn't rhyme with SEC.

    Putting on my hypothesizing cap - that's the one where the hypotenuse is equal to the other two angles or something else - and pondering a season finale where there are three undefeated teams and a 1 loss SEC contender - two of the undefeated teams lose their ccg. Who gets in?

    Take it a step further - Clemson goes undefeated, but loses their ccg, say in a last minute, kind of fluky, bull bullshit way, or Bama loses their ccg, and a certain team from the Midwest, who doesn't have to play a ccg, because, well, "we're special," remains undefeated. What goes down? Enquiring minds want to know.

    Hopefully we get to find out because I want to see any chaos that blows up this fucking "selection committee" approach.

    They had it right with the BCS computer formula but the media hated it because it went against their irrational "eye test" type bullshit.

    after we lost to UGA, and Miss St. then end the year with a loss to Aggy.

    Undefeated Notre Dame should be in over Clemson regardless, and should be ranked over them right now.

    The BCS' only real mistake - though one they made repeatedly - was trying to "fix" their formula to make it more consistent with the voters. It was, of course, ridiculous to have to "fix" it. I mean, the computers were brought in to the mix precisely because voter bias was seen as a big issue... and then.. when those computers said "We don't give a good goddamn that Pete Carroll is USC's coach, they're not the #1 team in the country" rather than the BCS Commish saying "Hey, maybe voters are morons" he was all apologies. Or then in 04 when undefeated Auburn got left out.... well, guess what Auburn.. don't fucking play the Citadel, ya chicken shit. It was then we might as well have gone back to the old system because the BCS was a dog and pony show at that point - simply used to confirm what the voters voted.

    Not to mention the calls to "fix" it when it, even when it matched the only two undefeated Power Conference teams, because some idiot thought a 2 loss USC should be in instead.

    I'm honestly rooting for West Virginia the rest of the way. I want so so so badly for the SEC to be shut out of the playoffs this year. No way it happens with their remaining schedule though.

    It would take 4 undefeated teams and a 2 loss SEC champ

    Big 12 should riot if WVU got left out for a 1-loss SEC Champ after going undefeated. Their remaining schedule is brutal.
