If ND goes 11-1 or 12-0, ESPN would dynamite an orphange if necessary to make sure that the Irish are in the championship game.

ND vs. Alabama? They would shoot spooge on the ISS' windows.

Mentat: Your Average Witty Fark User: Stop me if you've heard this one: there's football on BOTH sides of the Mississippi river.

Of course there is.. Arkansas, Missouri, A&M and LSU.


BURN!

Leave it to Yahoo to make me go to Google to find the actual poll they are discussing in the article.

seelorq: Yes. UGA got it easy this year. By current rankings, they will play just one top 7 team for the rest of the season (#7, South Carolina). Florida, by way, will play four, including LSU.


So, Florida's schedule is tougher than Georgia's, in part, because Florida has to play Georgia. Meanwhile, Georgia only has to play Florida. You're a farking idiot, even though Florida's schedule is tougher.

Kurmudgeon: UNC_Samurai: This means Conference USA is the best conference in the country.

Nope, it means we need a proper playoff now, not later.
4 teams isn't enough, but it's a start. Increase the teams, work the bowl systems in and you'll have a proper playoff.
Then we'll look back at these shenanigans and realize they were popularity contests only.


At which point, Texas A&M will award themselves a couple more championships.

Chunks McGunks: Dafatone: There's a whoooole lot of "why is this team ranked" or "why is this team ranked so high" going on.

Who should be ranked higher? Who isn't ranked that should be?

I've asked myself that a time or two this season and haven't come up with a good answer yet.


I really don't want Alabama to have the big target on it's collective back, but I can't either.
Florida State looks good, but they are saddled with the ACC. Notre Dame will, in my opinion, definitely deserve the top rank if they make it through the season undefeated. I don't think they will though.

So you've established the SEC is overrated, and the Pac-12 is overrated because USC lost, the Big 10 is overrated because Nebraska and Wisconsin lost to unranked Pac-12 teams, the Big 12 is overrated because Oklahoma almost lost to UTEP and Oklahoma State lost to Arizona, and no one thinks the ACC and Big East are good conferences anyway.

This means Conference USA is the best conference in the country.

so we're stopping the ranking system at number 7 now?

I think if Notre Dame can beat Michigan, they might have a chance of being a contender for the National Championship this year. They have a tough schedule this year playing against Michigan, Stanford, BYU, Oklahoma, and USC. I think their easiest teams are Navy and Wake Forest.

If Notre Dame can contain Denard Robinson, they will win next Saturday night.
