I don't follow NCAAF much, but they're undefeated and topped Ohio State by 3 touchdowns. Seems appropriate to be in the playoff.

What's the argument against? 'Bama has not one, but two losses.

I get that the bowl games are a holiday / New Year's tradition, but isn't a 3-4 week layoff between games a recipe for rusty football?

Why not start the season a few weeks later to reduce this gap?

Don't want to leave your chances up to a committee, win out. I get that is easier said than done but the same system that benefited you in the past bit you on the ass this time. That's how it goes.

Turns out when you go 10-1 in a lesser conference, you get rewarded.  OSU got housed at home and Alabama lost two games on the road by a combined 4 points to teams who ended the season ranked 6 and 16.  And they beat the number 21 team on the road.  I think Alabama has a legit complaint.

As for how the rankings ended, the number 2 seed getting the easier semi-final game is pretty funny.  They should have done the Michigan-OSU rematch in the semi and given Georgia the TCU game.

Yes but it's all tied to the NCAA tradition of pretending they give a shirt about the students.

Because of the 40 other bowl games, they can't really do that since you don't know who is going to be playing in the playoffs in September.  There is also the argument that the time off gives some guys a chance to heal and you end up with more competitive games.

Michigan played 2 ranked teams - Penn State who they beat the shiat out of and OSU who they did the same too.

In a 4 team playoff, I really hate including teams that couldn't win their conference.  I understand the implications of "what if Purdue had upset Michigan" and you know, I'd have been OK with that.  Win when it really matters? Please advance.

We don't have to make every conference winner an autobid.

Autobid the power conferences. Give the top 1 or 2 minor conference winners autobids.

Hilarious when he said they should be in because they won their last 3 games.  Yeah ok, the last two games were against an FCS team and an Auburn team that wasn't going to a bowl.

I don't know what you want from me, but "...so" in response to everything I say is super annoying.

Would you prefer a 16 team playoff where every conference winner gets in? No playoff? Abolish college football? Make the FCS winner play the FBS winner, maybe in cricket?

If you're mad that the third best minor conference winner might be locked out, keeping in mind that they could always run the table (maybe even have 1 loss, probably not] and get a shot at an large bid so this scenario envisions two other minor conference winners being even better, then I don't know what to tell you.

Are you really that mad that one of 11-2 UTSA or Troy would be locked out in this scenario?

Washington quietly had a season that would have perhaps warranted a bid had they not lost to three-win AZ state.

Way back in the day, the NCAA was opposed to bowl games, period, as they "served no academic purpose."   Then $something happened.  I can't figure out what it wa$.

This is where it needs to go.  4 16-team conferences each with 2 8-team divisions. Every season you play the 7 other teams in your division and 4 from the other division in your conference.  There are no rankings until week 6 since rankings in week 1 are totally useless and are only there to juice the TV viewership.

4 conferences seems a little unwieldy (that's 25+ teams per conference!) - maybe 8 conferences?

Each of the 4 conferences has divisions within it. All we're trying to do is build a straight forward NFL style system to get us a top 4. Conference championships between the (mostly) top 8 would indirectly expand the college football playoffs.

bluenote13: Turns out when you go 10-1 in a lesser conference, you get rewarded.  OSU got housed at home and Alabama lost two games on the road by a combined 4 points to teams who ended the season ranked 6 and 16.  And they beat the number 21 team on the road.  I think Alabama has a legit complaint.

As for how the rankings ended, the number 2 seed getting the easier semi-final game is pretty funny.  They should have done the Michigan-OSU rematch in the semi and given Georgia the TCU game.


Uh no, since they are not as good as the 16th ranked team they should not be considered one of the best 8.

If Alabama has a legit complaint, then Tennessee has an even bigger complaint. Because they beat Bama and they also beat the other team that beat Bama. Tennessee also had more wins against higher ranked opponents.

It's not Tennessee.  That South Carolina loss is terrible and stop pretending it's not.

Alabama's two losses were by 4 points, both on the road, to teams that ended up the season in the top 16.  Tennessee lost by 25 to South Carolina.
