    TCU over Baylor. Hahaha. TCU is a better team, even though they lost by 3 to Baylor. I love how the analysts are poking fun of Baylor's OOC 128/128 schedule. That's pathetic. Stay out suckers!

    If you play the schedule Baylor has, you are not allowed to lose and still be in the Final 4.

    Committee has to send that message. Has to.

    I really like how they are putting this much emphasis on strength of schedule. That's how it should be. I would've loved to have this system in place back when Boise was going undefeated for much of the season. Even being undefeated this deep into the season they'd only be around 10-15 at this point. They never deserved to ranked in the top 5 like they were.

    FSU is really being hurt by the ACC being so weak and that's becoming more of a factor as the season goes on. And the other big factor in them dropping was likely ND's poor showing. But they're not in any danger of missing the playoff if they win out.

    Miss St loses to Alabama and Ole Miss
    Alabama loses to Auburn

    SEC has no 1 loss teams and gets locked out of the playoff. That, plus as many one loss teams as possible are the best scenarios to push this to 8 teams sooner rather than later.

    I figure Oregon is going to smash us. This and the USC games are games I knew or know we had/have no shot. But, man oh man, I hope the kids embrace just the chance to compete against these guys and walk in there with a chip on their shoulder and punch Oregon in the mouth. Wouldn't that be special?

    I can see a scenario where they both get in-Miami beats Florida State (No fan of this sport can make a case for FSU getting in if they lose a game). Mississippi State loses the Egg Bowl but wins the SEC (making them the only logical team in the playoff from the SEC). Follow that up with chaos in the Pac 12-ASU loses to Oregon State, USC loses to Cal, and UCLA loses to SC (which would ensure that Arizona-Arizona State is the Pac 12 South championship game). Arizona State then wins that and beats Oregon for the Pac 12 title. Forgot something-Ohio State loses to Michigan and then beats the Cornshuckers for the Big 10 title. TCU and Baylor win out.


    That would give us.......Mississippi State, TCU, Baylor, and ASU?

    What's interesting in the final seeding will be the match ups. Oregon vs TCU and Miss St vs FSU could help teams win the championship if they had to go through someone else. It's kind of like the NCAA bbal tourney.

    Spoken by someone who does not have a ticket to the game and doesn't have to freeze his scrawny ass off. Flounder, a night game in late November could get to 40 below zero.

    Yeah, I thought about that but had a hard time equating -140 to +140, so I went with -40, :wink2:

    Message being clearly sent to FSU that if they lose in this year's ACC then they'll be left out.

    I don't think that's fair when you have folks talking about Ohio State and Baylor.

    FSU stacked a road trip to play Okie Lite, a home date with Notre Dame and a rivalry game with Florida on top of its conference schedule. That's a big boy schedule and if you go 12-1 it's better than just about anyone else's 11-1 or 12-1.

    And I hate the Criminoles.

    I think the final four will be Alabama and FSU for sure. FSU will win out and Bama seems like they are getting things dialed in. In fact, I think Bama will win it all, unfortunately. They are really tough to beat when they get it rolling. They play python style football. Just squeeze the life out of you. Squeeze the clock. How can a power running team also have the best freaking receiver in the nation? Not really fair.

    Completely agree. a 12-1 Seminole team with a loss to say a decent Miami squad deserves to be there more than a TCU or Ohio St.

    Ohio State should not be in the conversation.

    You can't give FSU credit for beating Florida if you don't give TCU credit for their wins in the b12. Florida is not Florida this year...and has not been for a while. That said, defending national champs with only one loss this season should get you into the top four no matter what.

    I think they're basking in the glow of a very successful MeatchickenState game. I'd be very surprised if they climb into the final 4, but it would require winning the B10 and several other teams taking on a second loss.

    They tried to stack the schedule. Trouble is Florida is horrible, OSU is average, and ND is good but not great. Kudo's for trying, but it still doesn't give them a strong SOS.

    I think Mississippi State could well beat Bama and lose to Ole Miss.

    Dak Prescott is exactly the kind of QB that beats Nick Saban - just like Tebow and Newton. Plus, they'll pick up the pace and try to not let Bama play at their snail's pace. Not saying that it will happen, but I think it's more likely than people think it is.

    With the Egg Bowl though, I don't think the gap between Ole Miss and Mississippi State is that large, it's in Oxford, and it's a rivalry game. I think it's entirely within the realm of possibility.

    Then, outside of the realm of rational possibility, you just need Missouri or Georgia to upset Mississippi State in the SEC title game for mass chaos to reign. JMO, but I think there would be massive pressure put on the committee to take an SEC team over an Ohio State or Baylor.

    Sure. FSU plays an 8-game conference schedule and TCU plays a 9, iirc. So take either the Florida to even things up if you want. Then what you're left with is FSU playing Notre Dame and Oklahoma State versus TCU playing Minnesota.

    I'll grant that the Big 12 is better than the ACC this year, so the schedules might be on par even though FSU made the effort to schedule stronger in the non-conference. FSU would then have the addition of the conference championship game while TCU doesn't play a 13th game. Advantage FSU even if I'm tilting things for TCU as much as possible.

    But my post was about Baylor and Ohio State. Baylor played absolutely no one in the non-conference. That should keep them out of the conversation. Ohio State tried to schedule 1 real non-conference game (VA Tech in Columbus)... and they lost the game. That should keep them out of the conversation.

    No way OSU or BU should be taken over a 1-loss FSU. Hell, no way they should be taken over a 2-loss team from the SEC West or Pac-12.

    FSU needs two losses to be dropped from final four. No way around it. Defending national champs needs to count for something, even though it technically doesn't. To be the best you need to beat the best.

    It's a bummer because i really don't care for the FSU program.

    What an arbitrary standard to use there.
