They proved that in 2011 too.
I think it was dumber then, actually.
Which looks a lot worse than Oklahoma losing to Texas on a last-second FG in October now too. LSU didn't look nearly as good down the stretch and Texas wound up being better than people thought they were at the time.
Dwayne Haskins making a good case to be the first QB taken in the draft next April.
Ohio State doesn’t have a history of producing great NFL QB’s, but I think Haskins has a great chance to succeed at the next level.
I don't think he'll go yet.
Look, I’m a Bulldogs fan, and if they made the playoffs I wouldn’t think it was right (wouldn’t be mad and would cheer for them being it’s my team). But honestly, this isn’t there year, they might have gave Bama the best fight anyone has all season, but the thing is they lost, they don’t deserve the spot. I would hate it if a two lost team had got in over them last year, so I wouldn’t want it done to a team who deserves it. Oklahoma should have the spot. If this was a Top 8 deal sure Georgia would have earned a chance with that game... but that’s not the case.
It’d be more “fair” if every conference had an Alabama type team to get past to win the conference.
I mean, I can agree to that. But it’s sadly not the case. We’ll just have to wait to see what happens. But like I said, not sure if the fact they almost beat Bama is enough reason to put them in. Without that lost to LSU, sure.
They were also routed by LSU though. Which still isn't as bad as Oklahoma's loss.
Nope, aint gonna. I grew up and still live in the Florida Panhandle. That means in the late 40s through the 70s it was a combination of Roll Tide/War Eagle/Gators being screamed outta car windows all through the night. We were and still are on the geographical border between all three. Back then we slept with our windows open and the drunken Tide fans ruled the night.
LSU ended up a top 10 team and Texas did not.
I dont believe that #4 losing to #1 by one score in the final minute warrants a drop. Especially considering how far #1 is ahead compared to the competition.
They both were 9-3 before Texas had to play an extra game. And for some reason there is a HUGE discrepancy between the CFP committee and everyone else because Texas is higher in both the AP and Coaches Polls.
Georgia had their chance and blew it. I don't see why they should get another one in a season where there are so few games that allegedly makes them all matter. To keep Georgia at #4 or move them up to #3 (Kirk Herbstreit actually said this last night, wtf) would be to say that results don't matter - which is a pretty terrible precedent to set.
Herbstreit said that again this morning. In what universe do you move up after a loss? I don’t care if the loss was to the #1 team, you don’t move up unless everyone ahead of you lost too, which Clemson and ND (who didn’t play) did not.
I’m a Buckeyes fan, but I think Oklahoma absolutely deserves the #4 spot.
Paul Finebaum also saying Georgia should get in, color me shocked.
Good they did the right thing.
Georgia apparently will be playing Texas in the Sugar Bowl, should be a good game.
lol. Kirk is livid that UGA didn't get in. Huh?
Lincoln Riley must have sh!t in Kirk’s corn flakes this morning. You could tell even the other analysts on ESPN were like “whoa, take it easy” regarding Kirk’s vehement defense of UGA.
The world where ND doesnt have a conference championship to play in. Everyone knows Clemson is gonna beat the brakes off ‘em. The competition level is outstanding.
Michigan gets to beat Florida's ass again. We play Florida more than we play Minnesota and Illinois and they are in our conference.
I’m pretty tired of it myself. Most people here wanted UF/UCF.
Yeah, that would've been much better and Michigan never plays LSU. Instead we get Florida and Michigan again.
Glad to see the Bucks in the Rose Bowl. Says a Buckeye in Washington State.
Good Lord, the names of some of these bowl games....
Cheibundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl
Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
Raycom Media Camellia Bowl
Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl
So far ---
Army -- 10
Navy finally on the board..... 10 - 7
Guess I’ll watch the Heisman Quarterback Trophy Show tonight. This will make 16 out of 19 years that a QB has won it.
Happy for Kylar Murray. (Spelling?)
Kinda glad Dwayne didn't win. I'm hoping he'll come back to OSU next season.
I hope Haskins comes back too, but I don’t think winning or not winning the Heisman will have much effect on his decision. It’ll be more based on where he’s projected to go in the draft. Most mock drafts I’ve seen have him as a mid-1st rounder if he leaves OSU this year. All that $ could be too tempting to pass up.
These bowl games are meaningless. Please expand the playoffs!!!!!
I'm good with four teams taking part in the mini college payoff format as it's currently designed. It's sure a lot better than simply naming a #1.
As far as all the other bowl games go. I watch all that I can and I'm entertained by most of them.
I still watch but they are still meaningless. I would like to see an 8 team playoff.
Most of these games will be or have been meaningless in the grand scheme of things regardless of playoffs, BCS, or whatever. I had fun watching games like EMU/GaSo today and it's good exposure for the schools and teams involved.
I think 4 is okay because everyone behind that (OU actually has a major flaw in their defense as well) has serious resume flaws. 4 is better for the sanctity of the regular season, which is the most meaningful in all of sports. I'd just can the committee because a group of people meeting behind closed doors with no balloting process where any individual can be held accountable is not good, IMO. Also, the committee pretty sorely disregards G5 teams more than the Coaches or AP polls ever did.
With an 8 team playoff, it'll just be additional Bowl Games added to the end of the schedule. I believe there are currently 41 Bowl Games played by 80 teams. Adding another level for an 8 team playoff wouldn't decrease the number of 'meaningless' games, it would only add more games.
Also, by adding games to the schedule, there's additional risk of injury by more playing time. As it is now, those that are lucky enough to be considered to get to the NFL many times don't compete in their post season NCAAF career fearing an injury that could derail their value.
Most all of these bowls are meaningless in determining a national champion but many still make 3 hours in front of a television entertaining.
There's too many coaches talking about going to eight team playoff now. The NCAA will have to do something before too long....
I bet an eight team playoff will be in place by 2020.
How does the FCS have 24 teams in their playoffs? Why can't the FBS add more teams it just makes more sense and it would generate alot of money.
I dont see anything negative to playing more football games. Who doesn't love football?
It really wouldn’t. You would probably have to eliminate conference title games which are cash cows for leagues. Then on top of that the first round would have to be at campuses which gives money to the schools. Asking a fan base to pay for one expensive home game and two bowl games is a lot which would hurt ticket sales and prices. Look at these bowl games, costs comparatively much less to attend them than regular games. The only game that is still expensive is the title and the Rose Bowl
Man Charlie Strong sucks.
Mark richt will probably be available in a year or two.
How would an 8 team playoff make the games that are being played now any less meaningless....
