    You can't keep out Texas for the sake of Alabama, where Texas beat Alabama (in Alabama).

    You can't keep out the SEC Champion.

    One of those maxims will prove false tomorrow.
    My money is on FSU not getting in. Ratings demand an SEC rep.

    • It should be 1 Washington, 2 Michigan, 3 Florida State, 4 Texas. But it will likely be Alabama replacing FSU because money. This senario is why they got rid of objective ratings in the first place.

      • If it was me, it would be Michigan, Washington, FSU and Texas. Not necessarily in that order, but those would be the teams.

        FSU is an undefeated P5. Their SOS isn’t great but the committee has set the precedent too many times that they sort by record first before comparing other characteristics. Their first string QB is out, their backup is concussed, but they’re undefeated.

        Texas beat Bama in Tuscaloosa. I don’t care that it was September. I don’t care that Bama has the “better win” over Georgia. If a head to head road win doesn’t earn the nod between conference champs with equal records then why ever schedule a game like that again (ignoring that will now be a conference game).

        But man is ESPN playing up the Bama argument. With both Bama > FSU and Bama > Texas. And whatever happens, Georgia screwed up the Rose Bowl. It’ll likely be Michigan vs Whoever while Washington gets a “home game” in New Orleans.

            I could see that. But, we are talking about 3 of the most-followed college football programs in the last half-century: Florida State, Texas, and Alabama. I don't think ratings will suffer much regardless of who gets the shaft.

            • Is there any chance Washington could get left out instead of FSU?

                Agreed. Those would be my four as well. Probably in that order as well.

                The Criminoles won all their games in a Power 5 conference. The ACC did reasonably well against the other top conferences as well.

                100%. Texas has to be in. I do think it will come down to Alabama vs. Florida State.

                At least one of the articles on ESPN has the Playoff as follows: 1. Michigan vs. 4. Alabama, 2. Washington vs. 3. Texas. Would likely see a Texas-Alabama rematch if those wound up being the matchups.

                Nobody cares about the Rose Bowl anymore. ; P

                • FSU won't be out. Undefeated and won a P5 conference. Yes given that they will be limping in with QB#3 will mean they get murdered in the semis, but you can't keep them out based on that; you have to go by the actual on-field results, and they did the above.

                  • It's way overshadowed by the Texas v Alabama argument but it'll be interesting to see who goes to #1, Michigan or Washington, as that really decides who plays in the Rose Bowl and who goes to New Orleans.

                      • The committees have never picked the "best" teams in 9 years. They go with "most deserving/resume" and call it "best". It'd be a lot easier if they used the right words.

                            It's Heather Dinich, their "ACC reporter" who wrote a scathing article in 2012 proclaiming FSU's win over NIU in the Orange Bowl was their ceiling. Then 2013 happened. Whoops. She's been useless for over a decade.
