I don’t pay attention to the selection committee rankings until the regular season is over. We’re there now, and here’s what they came up with.
There is some truly bizarre stuff there, as David Hale explains.
Those of you who watched the Cocktail Party, did it ever enter your mind that Georgia played the ninth-best team in the country that day?
There are eight SEC teams on that list. As things stand, there are going to be teams from the SEC all over the New Year’s Day bowl schedule. The committee thinks the conference is the shiznit.
Georgia is 3-1 against teams in that top 25, so apparently the flaws we’ve grumbled about throughout the season weren’t as bad as we thought.
There’s no way of knowing for sure, of course. Some of this stuff is so random, it gives subjectivity a bad name. Check out this rationale for ranking Oklahoma ahead of Ohio State.
Some difference there, hunh. Now I know one team has to rank ahead of another, but, damn, man, that’s the best you can come up with as to why?
If things play out this weekend the way most expect, I can’t wait to hear Mullens’ explanation for putting Oklahoma in over Georgia. Talk about making it up as you go along…
