Re: What Must The Big XII Do?

Nah, I am not saying they should be in this year. Just saying that they need to do something to make more of an impact of getting in. Having two top Big XII teams match up for a "champs" game at the end of the season for a rematch isn't going to cut it, I don't think.

Re: What Must The Big XII Do?

I heard a CFP guy or media guy or someone, maybe Hocutt (or whatever his name is) say that even if Oklahoma was considered in the CFP as the Big XII champ, there is no way they would have made it in based on their style of play. A playoff team needs to be strong on offense and defense and play a sou...

What Must The Big XII Do?

I have been keeping up with college football since 1998. Honestly, I have loved Big XII football. The years of Eric Crouch and Nebraska. Chris Brown running over Nebraska winning 62-36. I didn't have to look that up. That game has always stuck with me. Sproles and Roberson, Jason White, Josh Heupel,...

Re: Bowl Thoughts

Now we go from a computer program having an impact on polls along with opinion to the system we have now. A select number of people in a room that decides which teams belong in the top 4 positions of the rankings. I just wonder what types of points they throw around. Back in 2008, Texas beat Oklahom...

Re: The Big 10...

Yeah, I am not sure which way of thinking about it. I see both sides, and it goes round and round. So, Michigan beats Penn State, Ohio State loses to Penn State. Ohio State beats Michigan. Penn State wins the Big Ten. I wonder if this will ever happen again. If so, how often could this come up? I wo...

Re: Do They Really Analyze It That Way?

Yeah that is totally right. The only thing I can figure is that Nebraska hasn't had any bad losses, as far as not getting beaten by a team with 2 or 3 wins only. As far as the computer model goes, they are ranked high I feel also. Michigan was beaten by the same Iowa team that lost to NDSU. Not sayi...

Re: Do They Really Analyze It That Way?

But, Spence, just curious... If you were a CFP member, AP Poll voter, or media head, would you have the Huskers in a top 25? Just curious.

Re: Playoff Pandemonium

I will take that approach, Eric. As far as the definitions go, I read those the other day. I am left to wonder: Are they saying, "Hey, these are the factors we have laid out and we are sticking to it"? Or are they saying, "These are the factors we have laid out, and it sounds good and...

Re: Do They Really Analyze It That Way?

Or maybe not enough analyzing... How is Nebraska not ranked in some polls especially the CFP? They beat Wyoming and Minnesota and a few teams finishing 6-6, and lost to the tough teams in the Big Ten. Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Iowa. Lost to Wisconsin in overtime. Yes they got their doors blown off ...

Re: Playoff Pandemonium

Certainly is building up for some back room shenanigans. Well, maybe that is too harsh a word to use. I can't see Clemson being in the playoff picture if they lose to VT who is ranked like what 18 or 22 or whatever. Maybe a last second 48 yard winning field goal by VT in a defensive slugfest. That m...

Re: Computer Poll For 11/28

Just figured it all would come out in the wash near or at the end anyway. Just figured the OW percentage and OOW percentage is better than what I could come up with. Not meaning to offend.

Re: Computer Poll For 11/28

I know where you coming from about the penalty. It is just for fun though. I average each team's opponents' win percentage and opponents' opponents' win percentage from various sources. I take the average just for that reason. From various sources. I just did it to see how close it would come to oth...

Re: Do They Really Analyze It That Way?

Yeah that is what I like about the "craziness" of it. Tons of discussion and points to prove. The other year when LSU and Bama met for a rematch. Should Oklahoma State have been in it instead? Also, a few years back, Texas beat Oklahoma, and Oklahoma beat Texas Tech, and Texas Tech beat Te...

Do They Really Analyze It That Way?

By they, I mean whoever the talking heads and media are. Maybe even crazed fans too. Just using teams as examples, not bashing whatsoever. So, is this how it really works? Okay, so Ohio State is getting the love. Ohio State is getting the love for beating Michigan. That's cool. And Oklahoma. But do ...

Re: Computer Poll For 11/28

Yeah the two teams they lost to are a combined 17-7. But the Broncos did beat Washington State and Wyoming. This isn't a head to head comparison poll or a "so and so should be ahead of so and so because they beat them" poll. For all teams, I threw the winning percentages, opponents' win pe...
