You mean yea the defense was complete trash. They are a big 12 team. Probably don't even know how to spell defense, let alone play it.

If not auburn, then who? LSU?
|3 days 21 hours ago||Jesus Christ. This whining||
Jesus Christ. This whining shit is horrible. Who gives a flying fuck if PSU was 5 vs 6. There is zero difference between the two. Both teams miss the playoffs and PSU was always going to the Rose Bowl regardless of a 5 or 6.
and what does OSU being in over PSU have to do with credibility. It is blatantly clear to anyone that OSU had a much stronger case than PSU. OSU was 11-1 and PSU was 11-2. OSU beat 3 top ten teams including 2 on the road and had one less loss. And PSU got crushed by us and lost to a 4-loss team which was the only decent team they played OOC. I think the committee made the right call on the top 4.
|3 days 21 hours ago||I'm not so sure about that.||
I'm not so sure about that. There is no difference between 5 and 6 since both miss the playoffs. Probaby easier for the committee to put the conf. champ higher since the impact is nil. If a spot was in play, it wouldn't surprise me if the results were different.
|3 days 21 hours ago||1 is just flat wrong.||
1 is just flat wrong. Washington was almost jumped by a team with two pretty bad losses (one by 39 pts and one to a 4-loss team) solely because of their weak OOC schedule. If they played even a remotely challenging non-conf schedule, PSU wouldn't even be in the discussion for a CFP spot
I also don't know why people give a shit about us being 5 or 6, it means nothing. 5, 6 or 10, its the same thing, we don't make the playoffs

And this BS comparison to washingtons OOC schedule. PSU lost to the only good team they played OOC.

Cause there is no chance in hell PSU is jumping Washington.
|5 days 10 hours ago||All I'm saying is Wisconsins||
All I'm saying is Wisconsins wins are incredibly weak. When you can't determine if the best part of the resume is a loss or your best win, that's a weak resume.
|5 days 19 hours ago||If Wisconsin wins big they||
If Wisconsin wins big they should be in the playoffs over UM. 2 very tight losses, some big wins.
|6 days 13 hours ago||If you take overall record,||
If you take overall record, then you'd have Bayloresque (or Washingtonesque) OOC schedules.

Was their offense injured? Fine maybe you can argue we don't score over 40 but they had 10 points. Can change that due to LBs.

Beating Colorado, even in an ugly, flukey game, will solidify their lead over us.
|1 week 2 days ago||Lets look at wins: Michigan -||
Lets look at wins:
Michigan - top three wins - Wisconsin (#6) PSU (#8),and Colorado (#9) - one is OOC which helps
PSU - top three wins - OSU (#2), Iowa (#22) and Temple (haha)
Wisconsin - top three wins - LSU (#21), Iowa (#22) and Nebraska (#23)
Even adding a PSU/Wisco win to the other team doesn't make their wins better than ours although Wisconsin would get a fourth top 25 win (assuming nebraska stays ranked in the CFP). Plus we have the head-to-head against both of them.
Michigan - losses - at OSU (#2) and at Iowa (#22)
PSU - losses - at Michigan (#5) and at Pitt (#24)
Wisconsin - losses - vs OSU (#2) and at Michigan (#5)
Wisconsin losses are slightly better (or less worse) but they also have the only home loss amongst us.
|1 week 3 days ago||For this purpose, the 15 was||
For this purpose, the 15 was akin to the goal line. If the ball crossed the leading edge of the 15 when it was marked it is considered a first down. The marker was irrelevant which is why they didn't bother measuring.
|1 week 3 days ago||No way Clemson stays in with||
No way Clemson stays in with a win. Louisville has been exposed as a fraud and Auburn just got trashed by Bama. I don't think Colorado or Penn State can jump us. We would all have two losses and we would own head to head (both blowouts) and have better wins.
If either Clemson or Washington lose, that opens the door for us.
|1 week 3 days ago||Agreed. wisco might get in||
Agreed. wisco might get in over us but can't see a scenario that Penn State does. Wisconsin can point to the LSU win (even though it's a joke that they are still ranked). penn state lost their one decent OOC game and only has one good win.
|1 week 3 days ago||But if you overweight them||
But if you overweight them then you get shitty OOC schedules since all you need to do is not lose. Washington has beaten one ranked team and lost to one. Hate to say it but that makes then much weaker than OSU who not only beat two top 10 big ten teams but another top 10 team OOC. Washington can strengthen their resume by beating Colorado but they would still arguably have a weaker resume than OSU.

If you are Texas and the option is lame duck season or eh hire, you pick lame duck season. The atmosphere there is poison so it's hard to get a no brainer at this point. They need a year to either confirm a reach or convince someone you can rally the troops

Hosting it. Turkey three ways. Spatchcocked, turkey pastrami and turkey leg/thighs sous vide. Tons of other sides and some fierce drinks.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||And the 2nd one was utter||
And the 2nd one was utter bullshit as rugby punters lose the protection once they leave the tackle box. He took a good 3-4 steps and was clearly outside the tackles when he kicked the ball.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I can't find a reason that||
I can't find a reason that any one loss team would be considered above OSU. The quality of their wins are comparable to ours and their loss is better. And we are the clear second best one.

Thank you Simone
|3 weeks 1 day ago||That is the right order.||
That is the right order. Shocked they did it right. Michigan and Clemsons resumes are so much stronger than Louisville.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I really have a hard time||
I really have a hard time believing Louisville will be ranked 3. They have a whooping two wins against over .500 teams. I get the whole close loss against a top team but still believe you should be rewarded more for beating good teams than by losing to them.
The OPs rankings seem about right to me. Not only have Clemson beaten Louisville (and gotten at top 10 win by doing so), they also have 2 other top 25 wins. The strength of those wins should def. more than offset the worse loss. I think Michigan is even more to the extreme as their wins are better than clemson and the loss isn't as bad (at least we were on the road).
Wisconsin is an interesting case compared to Louisville. One additional loss but to another top 5 team. They do have the LSU and Neb wins although they are in the bottom part of the rankings
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Don't see any way Louisville||
Don't see any way Louisville is ahead of Clemson or Michigan. We have three wins that are better than any of their wins. Clemson is similar. Having the "best" loss shouldn't overrule much better wins.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Why do we suck at play||
Why do we suck at play calling against Iowa? That last possession was straight terrible play calling
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Louisville has no chance||
Louisville has no chance unless a lot of other teams fall. They are the weakest one loss team and the rest of their schedule isn't going to help them.

Wow Dabo, that might have been the worst play call I've seen all year
