You The Experts. Buckeyes Win. Bama In Or Out

Simple. If the Buckeyes win, are they in or is the Tide in?

Fresno State losing doomed Alabama

I don’t believe Ohio State is in. I believe Alabama is going to be in. I don’t think Ohio State is good enough to be in. I’m not sure Bama is either and I don’t believe two teams from the same conference should ever make it to a field of four. The most deserving team after this weekend in my opinion is USC. I think UCF would have really needed to dominate Memphis today and they didn’t. Ohio State’s back seven isn’t good enough to deal with Clemson, Oklahoma, or Georgia. The Buckeye offense doesn’t take care of the ball well enough and Barrett just doesn’t have the arm strength to match up against a good defense.

If Alabama gets in, it will be the lowest TV ratings ever and both people attending the game will at least have good seats. Outside of football fans with no life, Alabama is so irrelevant at this moment.

Bama would beat Ohio State on the field, I think...but Ohio State is in.

I just can not forget that 55-24 beat down that Iowa gave the Buckeyes...the 15 point loss to Oklahoma is not near as bad.

It will be

Clemson V OSU..Sugar

Olahoma V Georgia....Rose

Southern Cal will get a spot in the Fiesta Bowl...probably against Wisconsin...

Auburn, who Georgia just rolled 28-7 will be a three loss team....and could play undefeated UCF...that would be a decent match...

We agree. I can't get over it either. I don't think Bama should be in either. I do think head to head Alabama would beat Ohio State. I didn't think Ohio State should have gotten in last year because the were not their conferences champ. I think SC should get the defacto pick.

I don't think they did follow the money. The money puts in Ohio State or SC. I think the committee believes Alabama is the fourth best team. I don't think a team that didn't win their conference should be in. I didn't think it last year with Ohio State and I don't this year with Alabama. I am glad it wasn't Ohio State because Ohio State isn't good enough to be there. The problem I have with 2 teams from the same conference is that with only 4 teams in half of them should not be from the same conference. You just don't have enough information to let that happen. What the committee did say was if you are considered to be a great team you can play two non FBS teams and get in. That is wrong too. But at the end of the day, Alabama is as deserving as any other team they could put in.
