CFP predictions

Submitted by FranklinHatchett on November 30th, 2017 at 8:43 AM
Ok y'all with one week of games to go who you got gettin in and what seeding for each team who's in? I say - 1 Georgia vs 4 Alabama and - 2 Oklahoma vs 3 Clemson. Then I'll take - Bama vs Oklahoma with Oklahoma winning it all. My only fear is that Oklahoma loses to TCU and if that happens I guarantee the committee will be trippin hard and will put OSU in as the 4 seed (I think Osu beats Wisconsin) No way TCU or Oklahoma will get in over Osu if they all have 2 losses. Even though you would think head to head or Osu's loss to Iowa would matter. In this case sadly I dont think they'd care. Boring day and we have no game to look forward to, I thought this would be fun. Whatch y'all think? Sorry there's no paragraphs I can't get it to do that.

There is no way in hell osu should be in the playoffs. I think it is mute anyways as they lose to Wisconsin but will see. If they beat Wisconsin by thirty the I am good with letting them in. It will be fun to watch Clemson beat them31-0 again.

OSU struggled to beat a team with no QB and huge officiating advantages. If they don't get the calls in the Wisconsin game they will lose but then Wisconsin gets to go get throttled by somebody.

Alabama does not desreve to be in. They played one decent team and lost by double digits. The Saban era is over and Harbaugh will be taking the reigns. Watch.

should be in over this 2 loss OSU team, if that is what it comes down to.  You can't look past what OSU did last year in the Fiesta Bowl.  They got in a non-conference champion and competely shit the bed.  I would say if this was next year or the year after then it would not play into it as much, but that hamblasting is still fresh in the minds of the country.  If OSU got in and got smoked again it would start to deligitimize the selection process.  I think people look back at the Iowa game and wonder what the hell OSU was doing in the Playoff in the first place. 

One thing is for sure about Bama, they are not going to get blown out.  After playing OSU and leading them deep into the second half with a non-functional QB, I can't say the same thing for OSU. (I can't say that I would mind seeing OSU get into the playoff and get their ass handed to them again, because then I think the BIG might actually wake up and realize that they are not doing the conference any favors by holidng OSU's hand all the way to the Playoff every year).

I actually don't see Wisconsin getting throttled by anybody.  If competitveness is the goal for the conference, Wisconsin is really the team I want going this year.  Their defense is LEGIT.

You said look at what happens when the committee lets in a non conference champion and then use it as the reason why a non conference champion, Alabama, should get in over a conference champion OSU (assuming OSU beats Wisconsin). That’s probably not the best example to give. I agree that Bama should get in over OSU but mainly because they only have one loss and looked really good all year. If OSU beats Wisconsin they will have three wins better than any Alabama win. Wisconsin, MSU, and PSU.

champ last year on the road, beat Wisconsin on the road. Won against a very good UM team and lost on a fluke FG block/return. Psu had 2 losses. Bama’s Best win is LSU, that’s it. Not totally the same scenario as last year. Many here have made the comment psu should have been in last year despite 2 losses. I guess it’s just OSU hate.

Disagree, I think the best team in the country is Auburn, and I think Ohio State is close to that when they play their best ball. There’s too much randomness in football, especially football played by 20 year olds, to say that the best team in football couldn’t lose twice. The best team in the NFL loses 2-4 times each year. 12-2 Auburn would be the #1 team in the country.

Yeah, I think OSU is overrated this season. They destroyed the crappy teams on their schedule and were in competitive games (Penn St. and Michigan) or lost (Oklahoma and Iowa) to everyone with a pulse except MSU.

Add in the fact that Alabama is in exactly the same situation that OSU was in last year: a single loss to a team playing in its conference championship. Bama should get in before OSU. Honestly, I think Oklahoma should get in before OSU even if they lose to TCU. They would have 2 losses, beat OSU head-to-head and their loss to a mediocre opponent (Iowa St) was at least competitive.

OSU will have wins over Wisconsin, Penn State, MSU, and Michigan. They will also have a conference championship. Bama will have wins over LSU, Fresno St, and Miss St without the conference championship.

 

It's obvious which team has accomplished more this season, plus it's clear by now that the committee cares more about strong wins than shit losses. Clemson lost to Syracuse and is currently ranked #1.

I have a hard time keeping Bama out if the goal is to truly put the best 4 teams in. Assuming the conference championship games go as expected, it'll be Clemson, Auburn, Oklahoma, and either 2 loss B1G champ OSU or 1 loss non-SEC champ Alabama. I guess we should be rooting for Wisconsin then, so both OSU and Bama get left out. But my problem with Wisconsin is if Michigan played their schedule, they'd probably be an 11 win team and in the CFP discussion. I fear if they make the playoffs, it'll be another disappointing showing by the B1G (MSU in 2015, OSU in 2016).

Saban is the biggest piece of shit in college football. Meyer we did'nt forget about you. You are the runner up for douchbag of the year. How's that investigation going weirdo. Wonder what he would be like if he was on the other side of the officiating. Hollow wins you fuckin clown.

Saban could right a book on hypocrisy. That guy does not have a soul. I would'nt trust that fuck to water my lawn. He definitely should have been a lawyer. He more than fits the bill.

Hatter you should actually watch that video.  I took your word for it, but man, that meme is a perfect example of how social media, etc. can create fake news.  Saban actually says the exact opposite of what the meme indicates he says in 2016, and his answer and analysis is pretty sound.  He actually makes a case for why putting OSU is the Playoff last year could have been the right move and his answer would be completely consistent with Alabama getting in this year.
