Re: I believe CFP Chairman just said.....

We can whine about committees...but can we do better? Yep...we can yell "computers"....which are just man designed algorithms. Some flawed...some not as much. Today...perusing computer rankings...you have computers that rank Baylor as #4 and another as #22....LSU #1 and #11, Clemson #1 an...

Mountainman wrote:......yep that makes the point alright, scheduling is subjective too, as well as wins...... and I recall a ‘13th data point’ knocked out TCU and Baylor, but not the Fighting Irish.

Re: Notre Dame drops to...

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Atlantic Coast Conference has asked the NCAA to change a rule that would allow the league to hold a football championship game. The ACC expanded to 11 schools two weeks ago by adding Miami and Virginia Tech, but under NCAA regulations only conferences with 12 or more teams can ...

Re: Notre Dame drops to...

__________________________________________ It sure would have been nice to see the Big 10 implement the Big XII's current Conference Championship Game in those days. Of course; there was that mumbo jumbo about needing 12 teams to sanction a CCG ... however, if the Big Ten wanted to just go ahead and...

Re: Notre Dame drops to...

__________________________________________ Which is why I continue to harp on the problem with preseason polls ... Because there is no current data to base your judgement on, other than, "We think so & so is going to be good, because they were last year." Last year doesn't matter anymo...

Re: Fantasy Conference 2019

_______________________________________________ I felt at this point, I may as well put a divider between the top half and bottom half of the participants. The point values are fairly large in their margin gap. Mountainman continues to stack up the points. All the way up to 37 now. At them moment; y...

Re: Notre Dame drops to...

And don't pretend that Bama wasn't a top four team....that was evident by the final snap of the season. Bama only lost to Auburn....as did Georgia....That is the problem with having divisions. Two teams have an equal 11-1 with the loss to the same team...only it didn't count for the team from a dif...

Re: I believe CFP Chairman just said.....

__________________________________________ Maybe someone should tell them to consider why a player such as Tua got injured in the first place. Maybe he put himself in a position to take a hit that he shouldn't have ... Maybe he didn't get the protection he needed during the play that put him out of ...

Re: Notre Dame drops to...

__________________________________________ The point is, it doesn't matter whether Alabama was supposedly a top 4 team or not ... You only assume that because of the last snap of the last game. However; if that is as it will be, Then simply do away with the SEC championship game, because it proves t...

Re: Notre Dame drops to...

And allowing 12-1 Bama and 12-1 Georgia to play in the CFP was only allowing the best four teams in the country to play for it... And Georgia proved on the field that they were better than conference champ Oklahoma. And Bama proved it on the field when they beat conference champ Clemson... Alabama ...
