    I don’t understand how Oklahoma is even in the conversation. They’ve barely beaten a bunch of very bad teams. How does that get you in the top 4?

      Don’t sleep on Oklahoma. They are the type of team that might wake up and play their best football just in time for the playoffs. But i agree, they have looked very vulnerable to date.

      I agree. Every Saturday is a BIG SATURDAY for OU football. You never now how they may lose that one.

      Oklahoma’s final 3 games are against ranked teams. they’ll see themselves out during that stretch. Okie State is their last game, and the fighting mullets don’t play anybody good between now and then; I expect they’ll be primed and ready to take out the Sooners.

        After watching a good bit of their past few games, I don’t see any way that they make it past OSU, ISU and Baylor undefeated. If they do somehow make it to the playoff, we’ll beat them as bad as we beat Arky.

      See “Clemson. ACC Championship powers them into the CFP for the last six years”.
      Admittedly, they solidly beat most of the very bad teams they played in those years.
      Still, there were a lot of SEC teams that could have won the ACC those years and made a run at a natty.
      This is how shit happens.

      Same with the All Cupcake Conference.
      Winning that conference doesn’t impress me and shouldn’t count for much. But there you have it…Clemson AND ND getting in over two SEC teams. This is how shit goes.

    Even just one week ago Chris Vannini, in the Athletic’s mid season report, trotted out the “If not this year then when….?” narrative. I like CV and his stuff, but that’s the laziest one out there (more so than the Fields-Fromm one even).

    Is this games already played or the entire schedule?

    It will be interesting to see if the CFP Committee will be as high on Cinnci as the Coach’s and the AP polls. Are they going to bow to the pressured to rank a team in the top 4 that squeaked by a very bad Navy team? If SOS means nothing then it’s just a beauty contest and we’ve got to have a token Group of 5 contestant.

      Same for OhioSt 69. Oregon whipped that ass in Columbus, but somehow AP & Coaches have OhioSt ahead of Oregon. No justification.

    • During the 1st Qtr. of the Navy-Cinci game, the loon in the booth informed us all that Cincinnati “controlled” the game vs. UGa. Only to lose right at the buzzer. That’s not how I remember the game.

        I’d like to ask him, If they were “in control,” then how did the other team end up with the win just at the end?

      While I find Game Day to be lacking in any useful information, I do think they have a pulse on what the powers that be will want in the playoffs. With that, they were pretty anti-Cincy and very pro Oklahoma and 2 SEC teams or 2 BIG10 teams if Michigan’s only loss was to OSU and they won the B10C.

      Oregon is also slipping back in there. If they win out, they make a strong case for going ahead of OSU.

      I’m betting they have Cincinnati in the top 4 in the first poll. And then they’ll drop them bit by bit as their SOS tanks – regardless of the Bearcats winning – and there will be so much talking about it that the committee will be giddy at all the bandwidth they’ll be getting.

    I think many people have gotten the memo on Penn State and Iowa(?) now, but just let me know when we can stop pretending that Michigan and Michigan State are very good teams.

    Big Ten plays out the exact same way (almost) every year. The names of the over-hyped “contenders” change as a product of schedule and realizing a degree of offensive competency. But in the end, OSU simply out-talents everyone else.

    I don’t understand how these SOS ratings vary so wildly. This one rates OSU’s SOS 68th. Sagarin rates it 51st. FPI rates it 92nd. Oklahoma’s is 121st here but 68th and 59th per Sagarin and FPI. Bama’s is 15th and 7th per Sagarin and FPI. Georgia’s and Cincinnati’s are fairly consistent across all three. Michigan and Michigan State will both be thumped by OSU, so who cares?

    All the Georgia narratives have held up. Narratives are facts-proof. If the Dawgs win it all, the narrative will be that Bama, OSU, and OK had off years. No matter what happens the Dawgs still won’t have played nobody, Pawwwllll.
