Cue the screaming and whining about Oregon.
Oregon has plenty of opportunity to catch up with a tougher remaining schedule.
Yea it really doesn't mean much in mid-October. But the trendy Oregon fans will whine nonetheless.
**** Oregon until they actually win something meaningful. They are pretenders.
whoa... Oregon State ranked SIXTH by one of the computers? higher than Ohio State, Stanford, Clemson...
That same computer ranking had Northern Illinois ranked 5th. The highest and lowest of the computer rankings get thrown out.
Texas Tech is #10 overall. That seems a bit questionable.... :huh:
16 team playoffs is both great for fans and proves the best team at seasons end...
But what about the fierce debate between 16 and 17? :thumbsup:
aTm or Fresno State? Yeah, I wonder which team (conference) is going to get in.... :lol:
Disappointed CU is not in the top 25.
I like hearing the argument that it will ruin the regular season. Just like nobody watches the NFL anymore.
But is it about seasons end? Weren't the patriots the best team in the nfl the year they lost in the SB? I think 16 would dilute the regular season. 6 teams with the top toe getting a bye would be best IMO. I'd watch either playoff anyway.
I'm comfortable with FSU in number two. What has Ohio State done that makes them more impressive than Baylor? Also, **** Baylor.
I'd love to see the O get shut out of the title game undefeated. Would serve their whiny coaches and fanbase right.
Beat two Top 25 teams, one on the road, to start. WTF has Baylor beat?
Baylor would decimate tO$U
Sent from a red light
Look, nobody carries the torch of hatred for Baylor higher than I do. But I don't really buy the rankings of Northwestern and Wiscy. I could be wrong, but I don't think those are the kinds of victories that launch you to a top 4 ranking. Baylor hasn't beaten anybody, that's true. But the manner in which they haven't beaten anybody is pretty spectacular.
I hate Baylor as much as the next guy, and I don't care for Tech either. That being said, I don't think either gets a sniff of the top 2. This is still the SEC champ (unless Auburn steps up and beats Alabama, or Ole Miss takes down Missouri----I don't think A&M wins in Columbia) versus Oregon or Florida State, unless you have a day with mass chaos like the one that allowed Notre Dame to sneak into the picture last year.
I like to think CU had something to do with O dropping a position
If you look at the remaining schedules of the Bama, FSU and Oregon I think most of us would say that they'll all end up undefeated It seems like that's always the case in late October but then in the end we don't end up with any undefeated teams.
TTU has played a pretty soft schedule, but it pisses me off how easy it has been from them to get their ship righted.
with a bunch of "youth" also
You do realize that if this was to happen a second time the ungodly amount of whining it would create? I don't think anyone would want to hear the **** storm that would be created by leaving an undefeated Oregon out of the NC.
it would actually be bad for CU if this were to happen because it would reinforce stereotypes about the p12. if the ducks do manage to remain undefeated, they deserve a place in the game, no matter what happens with fsu and some of the others. if you have fsu, bama, osu, and oregon all undefeated (it won't happen, but let's just say it does), then i personally think you have to downgrade fsu and osu a bit because of their ****ty conferences.
It's good to see Orr is a crypto Baylor fan.
Orr is a closet Baylor fan. The world makes a lot more sense now.
Pretty funny trail here: they have a common opponent in Buffalo, who's had quite a season. They're 5-2 and still have Kent St (2-6) and Miami, OH (0-7) left to play. They're going bowling!
Baylor 70 Buffalo 13
OSU 40 Buffalo 20
Buffalo 26 Stony Brook 23 (5 OT!)
Buffalo 41 Connecticut 12
Buffalo 42 E. Michigan 14
Buffalo 33 W. Michigan 0
Buffalo 32 Massachusetts 3
