BAMA-OKLAHOMA

Postby billybud » Sun Dec 30, 2018 12:49 am

So this is what it has come to...Alabama wins by 11 and is never threatened.

And Oklahoma gets a lot of praise for not folding up but playing it out.

I guess if you can keep it within two TD's against Bama, you can rack it up as one of those moral victories.

And, once again, the #3 and #4 seeds were superfluous...

It was never as close as the score at the end. Alabama got bored in the middle of the game and Oklahoma scores a couple of times.

And Bama took a knee on the 5 at the end in stead of punching it in for yet another score.

If there was a mercy rule like in Little League...which I am against...actually against organized youth sports...sandlot worked for Abraham, Issac, and Jacob...I digress, everyone would have gone home after the first, well you name it, five minutes, quarter half...

Clemson and Alabama were CLEARLY the better teams....... one can only wonder if Georgia and Ohio State would have been better choices to challenge the Tide and Tigers.

Dump the CFP Committee and decide it on the field!!!! 8)
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Maybe Georgia. Ohio State doesn’t have the defense to go with Bama or Clemson right now.

Didn't the Georgia-Alabama game already play just the game before the Alabama-Oklahoma game?

Sure it did...really a defacto part of the playoffs.

But I do agree that Georgia is better than Oklahoma.

Defacto Playoff??? Yet again our ears and eyes come under assault with made-up and meaningless, ambiguous, redefined, self-serving terminology for the purpose of explanation of one’s imagination of things that do not exist.


Does no one recall the mission statement of the CFP Committee????

Didn’t mean to imply a team had to beat ‘em..... :lol:

The National Championship is, in essence, an Invitational Tournament. The owners get to invite who they want by whatever criteria they decide. Not any different than any other invitational. It is not an open tournament. The fact all the schools in Division 1...I am opposing any name changes for anything...believe there is a level playing field is a self-deception promoted to bilk colleges out of their time, effort and money. When the Chairman of the Central Committee retires as little know fact is they get the Sergeant Bilko award, okay, I made that up.

Fact is it is an invitational tournament and the only solution is for the lemmings running the universities to withdraw and go back to the National Watercooler Championship.

All the rest is mindless prattle.

Ahhhh....you mindless whiners..LOL....

Of course the vast majority of FBS teams know that they aren't going to win a football championship...their administrations are not fools. It is not a charade.

They choose to participate for many reasons....Old Dominion, Georgia State, South Alabama, Texas San Antonio, Charlotte, etc have recently entered and have no shot at a championship.

"So why bother? Why, in this time of uncertainly, should a university make the extensive financial commitment necessary to support a major college football program? The reasons provided by the schools' athletic directors vary, but there is one common theme: They say having a football team improves the college experience for students and alums. They want their own color and pageantry to enjoy. And if a school is going to play football, it might as well try to play with the best, then worry about the future when it arrives.




...any distribution of "goodness" will be on a bell curve. And with 125 programs, five dozen will be on the back half of the curve...another nealy three dozen will be in the second quartile.

No chance even if there was a 16 team playoff.

The playoff committee, using its best information strives to put together the four best teams....tough job, especially when you have hindsight shooters nsalivating.

But please, stop the whine about these programs being "hoodwinked".

I do like the old bowl system and the water cooler smack talk that my team was better than yours and that my grandma could have dressed out and beat Your team. That was what made college football so great IMO.

But if this playoff system is here to stay, then I'd like them to expand it to at least 6, but not more than 8 teams. We can't have a March madness in December too.

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

I see no reason to take it to eight. This year who should the eight be that would change the championship game? You may get a closer game. I don’t see anyone who deserves a shot more than the teams who made it.
