Lol "miles better" than Penn State. You got whomped by OU at home--you better hope they keep winning or you'll be on the outside looking in.

You won by one at home.


If you watched the game, which I am sure you did not, you would agree with me unless Kite is correct and you really know nothing about sports.

Score don't lie. Neither does Flush.

Score absolutely can lie.

Two games. One, Team A jumps out to a huge lead, gets up 35-0 in the third quarter, empties the bench, and gives up 21 unanswered to Team B, wins 35-21.

Second game, score is 21-21 late in regulation. Team C scores to take a 28-21 lead on Team D, then runs back an INT to seal the win. Both games end 35-21. One was a blowout, one was a nailbiter.

I fell asleep at 28-10 PSU, and even at that point I felt tOSU was the better, more talented team.

Penn State jumped on them early. tOSU has some garbage special teams that might bite them at some point. tOSU seemed to be the better team for about the last 2 1/2 - 3 quarters of the game. I don't think they are miles better than PSU.

MJ/Jike - In either of your scenarios above, does Georgia get to the SEC title game undefeated and lose to Alabama. If so, do you think the committee still puts 11-1 Notre Dame in over 12-1 Georgia even though Georgia won @ND. Does how the Bama/GA game plays out, final score, etc. matter or do you think ND's SOS is that much stronger than Georgia's that it can be justified?

:lol:

Although, ND could face both participants in the Pac-12 championship, both participants in the ACC championship, and one participant in the SEC championship this season. I like their SOS over UGA's if it plays out like that (HINT: it won't).

I think my prediction does account for an undefeated Georgia losing to Alabama in the championship game.

The committee does not appear to give a lot of credence to head to head match-ups, and unless it was a super close game, I think they take an 11-1 Notre Dame over a 12-1 Georgia.

Also fairly unfairly, I think the committee does not want to give a team another chance in the play-off when they had a chance to make it in with a win the prior week.

I think the committee would take that into consideration if, say, UGA and Alabama were both unbeaten and Alabama won 30-27 in 2OT or something like that, where you could make the case that the two teams were almost dead even and it seems wrong to be so draconian for a loss like that.

But I wouldn't be at all surprised if Auburn beat UGA. That defense is still salty, their offense has playmakers, and it's at Jordan-Hare.

This Miami team reminds me a little of the 2012 Notre Dame team that went to the NC and was smoked by Bama. That year they had 4th quarter come from behind wins against Purdue and BYU and won in triple OT against Pitt. The big came where they were going to get exposed was @ Oklahoma and they ended up playing their best game of the year and won out from there. I'm getting nervous the role will be reversed this year w/ ND playing the role of Oklahoma to Miami.

I see Georgia losing to Bama and ND getting the nod over them. I also see Ohio State getting in over Wisconsin.

#glitterati in both cases.

And then the seedings will be set up to maximize viewership in the semi-finals and improve the chances for a ND/Bama title game. Then the NCAA can just sit back and rake in that sweet TV ratings money.

1. Bama
2. Clemson
3. Notre Dame
4. Ohio State

This is assuming that all four teams win out. The biggest impediment to this (I think) is the pedophiles vs. convicts tilt. If Miami beats ND [-o< this prediction is void, but that's okay with me.

Something weird always seems to happen in the last few weeks to shake things up. I could see Georgia shitting the bed and throwing it away down the stretch. Maybe something like Miami finishing strong? tOSU dumps one to the HAX? WHO KNOWS?


So you didn't really understand the question, that's fine, it happens.
