Welp, he’s right about this.
But that’s just the polls. What happens if/when the selection committee goes another way and hints or outright states the eight-game conference schedule was a factor in the decision? Besides Mike Slive’s head exploding, I mean.
I’m not predicting here. Just wondering.
Nobody objected to the Coaches Poll being a part of the national title conversation more than me, but I’ll say one thing for it: at least the coaches made their last individual ballots public.
Yeah, this is fun to think about…
The Stephen King scenario is this: undefeated Mississippi (1) and undefeated Mississippi State (2) play an epic Egg Bowl on Nov. 29, with the winner advancing to meet 11-1 Georgia (3) in the SEC championship game Dec. 6. Georgia wins that in another classic, and the SEC is sitting there with three one-loss teams that all would at least theoretically be ranked in every top four heading into Selection Sunday.
… but if you’ve got playoff fever, there’s a way to cure that bad boy. More brackets, of course.
With the news that Archie Manning is recusing himself from selection committee service for health reasons, the College Football Playoff folks announce they’ll muddle through the rest of the season with only a 12-member committee.
I can’t figure out if that’s a plus or a minus.
Another day, another buffet.

At least we know they’ve got a good excuse to watch a lot of college football on TV.
