What is the argument exactly? If both teams go undefeated they should meet in the NC game. If the computers somehow pick an SEC team over an undefeated OSU or FSU, well f*ck that crap.

This really just seems to be an unnecessary biatchfest. OK whatever the SEC is the best blah blah blah. Sometimes your best teams lose. Since when does a 1 loss SEC team automatically get a bid to the national title game? WTF?

THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE IN AMERICA OUTSIDE OF THE DEEP SOUTH WHO WATCH FOOTBALL AND DON'T GIVE A RATS ASS ABOUT ALABAMA.

Just be glad the National Championship game is on the Disney/ABC/ESPN family of networks instead of CBS, or the title game would be Alabama-Auburn II with Brent Musburger doing the game live from Katherine Webb's panty drawer.

I'd take a ten-loss SEC team over Ohio State or Florida State.  There are high school teams in Alabama that could win the ACC or the Big 10.  The better question is: Why aren't SEC teams invited to the NFL playoffs?  Does anyone seriously think that any NFL team could keep up with the speed in the SEC?  There's a reason the NFL doesn't play SEC teams: Everyone knows it wouldn't even be close.

Musburger works for ABC. Verne Lundquist is the big play-by-play man for CBS.

And according to Sagarin, Ohio State's SoS is better than Florida State's, yet the argument is against tOSU and not FSU. But I figured this whole bullshiat topic was coming when I heard folks like Jesse Palmer argue that same night that Auburn should jump Ohio State. That would be the perfect ending to the BCS era - the mother of all frauds.

Funny you should say that.  Urban Meyer whined his one-loss Florida team into a date with undefeated Ohio State back in 2006.  They won comfortably, but Tressel was infamous for having an SEC problem.

Now undefeated Ohio State's whining when they haven't even played their last game yet.  And who's the HC?  Urban Meyer!

I won't call the guy a hypocrite, though.  He's consistent.  He's just consistently annoying.

To be fair, he was advocating his 12-1 team over another 12-1 team, not an undefeated team.

He's still a douche, but you know, full disclosure and all.

2013-12-05 06:47:48 AM  
Just waiting for the dominoes to fall. Winston is charged and suspended, Duke pulls the upset, Michigan State knocks off Ohio State, Missouri squeaks by Auburn in an ugly, turnover-filled low scoring game, and we're treated to Alabama playing whatever team the computer spits out from the 1-loss clusterfark and ESPN explodes.
 
2013-12-05 06:48:41 AM  
It's a marketing strategy by the SEC, and ESPN who controls very lucrative contracts with the SEC. They create a "controversy" that maybe a one-loss Auburn team "should" be ahead of OSU right now. It drives ratings towards talking head programs and builds up drama/interest for the conference championship games. It also makes it the default assumption that if FSU or OSU lose, a one-loss SEC team is getting a shot. Nobody will even discuss the possibility of an undefeated NIU getting that spot, or a one-loss Oklahoma State getting that spot. We certainly won't entertain the possibility of a one-loss Michigan State getting that spot. Because they're not the SEC.

Also, my favorite scenario: FSU loses, Mizzou beats Auburn and OSU wins. OSU vs. Missouri national title game. To hear the lamentation of East coasters and West Coasters. It would be so great.

/Won't happen, but it'd be hilarious
//Also, OSU barely beating Michigan is still more impressive than losing to LSU, or barely beating Miss St, or having exactly zero decisive wins against any team with a winning record aside from Arkansas State
///Seriously. Auburn hasn't beaten anyone of note by more than a touchdown. Look it up.

The argument that a one-loss SEC team should get in over an undefeated is pants on head retarded and only exists because of SEC bias.

People should be asking not why they aren't looking at FSU's SOS with the same scrutiny (hint: they ARE), but why inter-conference losses in the SEC are looked at as proving how strong the SEC is while inter-conference losses in EVERY OTHER CONFERENCE are indicative of weakness.

That is the bigger pile of bullshiat, IMO.

I understand why the SEC gets some of the love - they've got some good OOC wins.  Ole Miss beat Texas in Austin, and Alabama beat Virginia Tech on a neutral field.  Auburn beat Washington State.  Yes, they still haven't fixed the conference schedule to eliminate the game against the scrubs in November, but they're at least playing and winning some good OOC games.

And Ohio State's OOC isn't terrible - San Diego State is a good mid-major and nobody four or five years ago could have predicted Cal plummeting into the toilet.

/If ESPN had any shred of journalistic integrity left, they'd be lamenting the Pac-12 beating itself up and removing Stanford and Oregon from the national championship picture - but they love them some SEC Network money too much.

If by "ignore," you mean, "endlessly speculate what an indictment would do to FSU's title chances and Winston's Heisman hopes".  And OTL actually discussing the details of the case.  Hell, ESPN has covered this more than they ever did the Roethlisberger case.
 
2013-12-05 08:24:03 AM  
Probably more because FSU destroys people and OSU should have been beaten by a terrible Michigan team.
Honestly would like to see the Big10 win the national championship, even if it is the Buckeyes. What I don't want is to see another team the Big10 get demolished in a bowl game./Go Michigan State.

Mine too, it gives Mizzou an excellent chance to be the national champions for the first time in history!

And in regards to the headline--yes FSU played an equally weak schedule--and at least had the decency to annihilate their opponents. OSU squeaked by some teams which are barely top 50.

For Duke to beat FSU would take as many miracle plays in a single game as Auburn has needed to win against Alabama and Georgia.  They are ridiculously outmatched at every position on Offense and Defense.

Auburn fans are the last people on this Earth to be arguing to hop over Ohio State.  Yes, Ohio State barely beat Michigan, but Auburn actually LOST to a mediocre LSU team.  They were also literally handed victories, TWICE, by their opponents...

Piddly stuff. I ran 5,000 simultaneous simulations of the Tide vs That Asteroid that Killed Dinosaurs. Avg score was 62,921.68 - 432.37. I rounded the decimal to two places to make it easier to post.

I think if the asteroid varied it's rushing and passing attack a bit more, it might've done better. It just kept going in a straight line though.

You'd be surprised how defensive people got about the naval breakdown; I made UCF the U-47 for torpedoing Louisville, and was rewarded with several Golden Knights fans complaining they were a little submarine instead of a capital ship (more complaints than I got from Miami fans for calling them the Hood and intimating FSU was going to blow them out of the water on the first shot).

Funny, in other threads you screech about civil liberties, but here, because it's a football player on a team you don't like, you're perfectly willing to lynch a 19 year-old who hasn't even been arrested or charged with a crime let alone found guilty of anything.  Seriously, it maybe time for some self-examination on your part.

What is a sub-75 team?  I don't think I've heard that terminology before.  If it is the teams that are ranked 51-125 in the BCS, then shouldn't the number of top 50 teams and the number of sub-75 teams add up to the number of FBS teams played?  There are only about 128 FBS teams and Mizzou has played 11 of them.  Even if they played the 126th, 127th, and 128th ranked teams, they would have eight opponents that are top-50 or sub-75.  If sub-75 are teams that are in the top 75, then how do teams play less of those than top-50 teams?  Can someone clarify what the site means?

llortcM_yllort: What is a sub-75 team?  I don't think I've heard that terminology before.  If it is the teams that are ranked 51-125 in the BCS, then shouldn't the number of top 50 teams and the number of sub-75 teams add up to the number of FBS teams played?  There are only about 128 FBS teams and Mizzou has played 11 of them.  Even if they played the 126th, 127th, and 128th ranked teams, they would have eight opponents that are top-50 or sub-75.  If sub-75 are teams that are in the top 75, then how do teams play less of those than top-50 teams?  Can someone clarify what the site means?

Sub 75 is a team below the top 75.

UNC_Samurai: Mr. Coffee Nerves: Mike_LowELL: bdub77: Since when does a 1 loss SEC team automatically get a bid to the national title game? WTF?

I'd take a ten-loss SEC team over Ohio State or Florida State.  There are high school teams in Alabama that could win the ACC or the Big 10.  The better question is: Why aren't SEC teams invited to the NFL playoffs?  Does anyone seriously think that any NFL team could keep up with the speed in the SEC?  There's a reason the NFL doesn't play SEC teams: Everyone knows it wouldn't even be close.

Why are we wasting these SEC teams on football?

Last night I did a detailed simulation of the 2011 Crimson Tide vs. the Luftwaffe. 86-3, Tide, with over 10,000 aircraft lost and not a single bomb fallen on London.

I find that dubious.  The Germans had more long-range bombing capability than A.J. McCarron.


If AJ was in charge of the bombing of London, every damn one of those things would have landed in the channel.
