    well if they attended UAB in the flesh they have done more than you - whether you admit it or not.

    correspondence school is better than nothing I guess. But that is all it is, better than nothing

    So let me get this straight. US news ranked Princeton the #1 university in the country. So i can become a Princeton fan and claim that i'm an intellectual?

    The bottom line is that stereotypical comments about Bama or other SEC schools is retarded since the only SEC school that is sub par academically is Miss State. US News ranked Bama 103 among almost 2500 4 year degree granting universities. More than half of Alabama applicants, 57%, are not accepted into the school.

    This information is available to any monkey who is online and capable of an internet search. Not hard!

    Back to topic.

    Does Washington's 31 point win over #10 Colorado guarantee them that #4 playoff spot? I think it does. They beat Colorado by 14 points more than Michigan did.

    Does a 12-1 team with a conference title trump a 10-2 team with no title? I think so. Bye bye Michigan.

    If Clemson wins the top 4 will be set.

    1. Alabama
    2. Clemson
    3. Ohio State
    4. Washington

    They were talking on 104.5 how the committee would just be itching to place Michigan 4th to create the ultimate marquee match up in the semi finals. Saban vs Harbaugh but to have 2 teams from the same conference in the playoffs with neither being a conference champion would undermine the process and make conference championships irrelevant. They can't do that!

    I also believe they want to reward Bama with what they feel is the easiest matchup in the semi final. I'm certain the rankings will be as i stated. If Clemson loses to V-Tech then the winner of Wisconsin vs Penn State moves into that spot.

    NO Big Eleventy Three stupid loser school should be in the college playoff cause none of them earned it.


    Win your Conference or STFU


    and yes if Alibummer stumbles vs Florida they should not be in the POs either.


    Conference Championships Matter

    I agree. Take the 4 playoff teams from the 5 major conference champions.

    That means Notre Dame will have to join a conference or f*ck off.

    And i think 4 playoff teams is enough. I could see 6 teams with 1 & 2 getting a bye but honestly 4 is enough. No matter how expanded the playoff is there is going to be a team left out that can make a case for themselves.

    The problem with an 8 team playoff.

    Would you like to see OSU vs Michigan again? That would be a match up in rd 1 with Michigan ranked 6th and OSU 3rd.

    And with 3 big ten teams already in the top 8 i guarantee you they would not rank Wisconsin 8th it would be USC there unless they decided to push Western Michigan up.

    Want Bama vs USC again or Bama vs Western Michigan?

    The only game in the first rd of an 8 team playoff that would be exciting to watch might be Oklahoma vs Clemson.

    An 8 team playoff gives you teams that were blown out by somebody during the year. Penn State got blown out by Michigan. USC got blown out by Bama and Oklahoma was blown out by OSU. What is the value of that?

    The more teams there are, the less likely someone deserving doesn't have a chance at the national title.

    Too many in basketball March Madness (although that is part of the fun), but an 8 seed has won the tourney and rare occasions an 11 seed makes the final 4.

    12 team PO

    1-4 get a bye

    5-12 play for a shot at 1-4 ect... I think this is how the lower divisions of football do it.

    Most likely most games any team is 3 that being the 1-4 seeds that most likely play in the Championship game. Could be less teams getting byes ect...

    seeing as Conference Championships Dont Matter just stop doing them

    What makes you think 12 teams are needed for a football playoff? I can't think of anything dumber, have 2 rounds of playoffs to get to a final 8? So 3 more weeks of games to get where we are already at?

    What 8 teams do you honestly think are playoff worthy? 4 is enough we don't need teams like Colorado and Florida State in the f*cking playoffs after they already got blown out.
