A Fark Handle: i'm ok with that. notre dame played a meh schedule and need semi-miracles to win some games against some really farking shiatty teams.
meanmutton: I know that I'm in the minority here but I honestly think that wins and losses are the most important component, then followed by strength of schedule. Everything else is moot. I don't care if a team had to make a miraculous last-second hail mary throw to setup for a two point conversion to tie and then win in extra-extra-extra-extra over time. A win is a win.To me, it should be:Notre DameOhio StateAlabamaOregonFloridaKansas StateNorthern IllinoisThen the 2 loss schools, etc.Michigan at 8-4 over a bunch of 10-2 teams is a travesty, even if the four losses were to teams with a combined 4 losses.
Peter von Nostrand: PluckYew: ModernPrimitive01: My top 10 just for the hell of it:1. Alabama2. Notre Dame3. Georgia4. Oregon5. Texas A&M6. Florida7. LSU8. Kansas State9. Stanford10.Florida State(South Carolina would have been 10 but with the injury to Lattimore they dropped)Alright, this is very late but how do you have Texas Ass To Mouth ahead of Florida? Florida beat them...in front of the 12th man.How the Fark have I never heard of that Aggie insult. That's just greatness right there
PsyLord: A Fark Handle: i'm ok with that. notre dame played a meh schedule and need semi-miracles to win some games against some really farking shiatty teams.THIS.
p the boiler: F it, SEC you win. You are the best, by far better than all others. Because of this the rest of the NCAA should stop playing your teams and have our own championship. While you all circle jerk each other and in the end your top two teams can play each other for The World Champions Of Redneck Good Ol Southern Boy Chicken and Waffles Trophy.
IAmRight: PsyLord: A Fark Handle: i'm ok with that. notre dame played a meh schedule and need semi-miracles to win some games against some really farking shiatty teams.THIS.Like, say, a blocked punt in the final minute to beat Louisiana-Lafayette./wait, I don't see ULL on Notre Dame's schedule...what sh*tty team almost lost to them?
meanmutton: Then the 2 loss schools, etc.
El Uno Magnifico: They had QBs who could throw the ball. Georgia has a great QB in Murray who played a great game this past Saturday and still lost.
A Fark Handle: Incog_Neeto: A Fark Handle: Tarl3k: *yawn* Let me know when there is at least an 8 team playoff for the NCAA Div I football championship...large playoffs are farking tarded, only exist to make money, and allow lesser teams to win titles due to good luck/fortune in a tiny sample size.So your still mad the Giants beat whoever your team was in the playoffs last year or are you a Saints fan still bitter about losing to the 7-9 Seahawks?neither. i couldn't care less about the nfl. i just think it's silly that sports fans want to put so much weight and importance on a tournament a few wins rather than the larger body of work. worse yet sports fans actually often use failure in a playoff as a knock against a great team (team x sucks because they couldn't win in the "clutch," etc. counter point: they don't farking suck they won so many farking game!). when the cards win 85 games then win the world series, why should i ignore what they failed to do in the 162 games? why are the 14-5ish giants declared "better" than the 18-1 pats when the season series is tied 1-1 and even on aggregate at 45-45? i find our willingness to accept that playoffs design to make money have become the american gold standard for determining the best team strange and perhaps stupid. especially since luck does influence so many sporting events. but i'm just a cranky old man.
chuggernaught: But you don't like it because their regular season wasn't pretty enough, which goes right back to the popularity contest stuff.
El Uno Magnifico: I think Notre Dame is a good team, one of the best this year. I just think Alabama is a really bad match for them.
A Fark Handle: no it's not about being pretty enough it's about being better. in the pats example 0 losses vs 5 or so loses and a tie season series, who's farking better if you're betting your life on it. and why shouldn't the regular season matter? why should we disregard the LARGER sample size (16 vs 4 or 162 vs
Olympic Trolling Judge: But W-L records aren't perfect either. To crown a champion from the regular season, you need either substantial scheduling balance (as in many soccer leagues)
Nabb1: mitchcumstein1: A Fark Handle: i'm ok with that. notre dame played a meh schedule and need semi-miracles to win some games against some really farking shiatty teams.I don't even know if it's that meh. I think when you schedule Michigan, Michigan State, Stanford, Oklahoma and USC you aren't really ducking anybody.I'll give you that, but Wake, Navy, Pitt, etc. are jokes. It's not ND's fault that Michigan State, Michigan and USC are really having down years, and Standford and Oklahoma were good wins. But I think Florida had a much tougher schedule than that.
A Fark Handle: it's a system that recognizes both accomplishments, unlike the american system that throws away the regular season.
