  • So after all of the talk how weak Michigan’s schedule was, UGA was proclaimed to be worse. Meaning bamas win over them isn’t that big of a deal, especially compared to bama getting beat by Texas.

    Meyer mentioned post game that is Texas isn’t over bama, then every non conference games will be cupcakes, as there is no point in scheduling a hard team. So bama getting in over Texas will have very far reaching effects on schedules.

    As for FSU…. Power 5 and undefeated. And the concussed player will be back in 3 weeks.

    • Saw someone wrote this morning that the nice thing for the selection committee is that Alabama, Texas and FSU all have modestly-sized, levelheaded fan bases, who will take the decision, whatever it is, with grace.
      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

        Well no, it hasn't had the mystique since the playoff started, and that was after taking some shots during the BCS era, but this was truly the last time to get the Big Ten vs Pac 12 champs to play in Pasadena. Notwithstanding that four Pac 12 teams will be in the Big Ten, and that the Pac 12 may still exist in the future with a MW merger, but with the new playoff format it will be near impossible to match the Big Ten vs whatever might be the Pac 12.

          Washington has the better SOS (11 vs 33) and Strength of Record (1 vs 2), but I think the "eye test" and their close games against lesser teams will keep them #2. Granted it's hard to compare because of the way the schedule played out pre/post sign-stealing coming to light, but I think the ASU/Stanford/WSU results will be the difference. Which sucks for them because Michigan is definitely taking the Rose Bowl since they haven't been there in almost two decades, leaving Washington with the Sugar Bowl and a "home game" against FSU/Texas/Bama. FSU is five hours from New Orleans and the Sugar Bowl is the home bowl for the Big 12 and SEC.

            • Oh and for the record, Massey's composite has it
              MI
              OSU
              Texas
              UW
              UGA
              ALA
              FSU

              oddly enough, Texas doesn't have any #1 rankings in the computers. Neither does FSU.

                • Well, I guess they can break their precedent of record over everything. Bama over FSU.

                  Michigan vs Alabama, likely at the Rose Bowl
                  Washington vs Texas at the Sugar Bowl

                  • I keep hearing about how Alabama is so great because they beat Georgia, but let's not forget:

                    - Alabama lost at home to Texas by double digits.

                    - Alabama struggled to sneak by USF (that's the University of South Florida, who went 4-4 against the American conference).

                    - Alabama nearly lost to Texas A&M.

                    - Alabama squeaked by Arkansas to win by a field goal (at home). An Arkansas squad that went 1-7 in conference and 4-8 overall.

                    - Alabama needed a miracle to beat Auburn. An Auburn team that went 3-5 in conference and 6-6 overall.

                    I really don't think they showed throughout the season that they were one of the Top 4 teams in the country over the course of the season. They simply were one the Top 4 teams yesterday, and that clouded too many eyeballs, IMO.

                    While I love seeing bad things to happen to Florida State, it is a joke that they didn't make it in the playoff. I hope they get to play Georgia in the Orange Bowl, and absolutely blow them out of the water. Criminoles could legitimately claim a national championship. Is the AP poll tied to the Playoff? If not, and FSU wins their bowl game, and either Texas or Alabama win the Playoff, we could have split national champions again. What a disaster.

                        A glaring example that it’s about money and ratings and not the having the best teams.

                          • Saw it mentioned, but is the beginning of the end for the ACC? Maybe it’s a bit irrelevant with the expansion but I have to imagine this is going to cause some serious bad blood.

                              Where would they go?

                              I wonder if we’ll see litigation. I assume FSU is suffering significant financial harm over the decision and I’m sure the committee didn’t follow their own rules.

                              Are people buying Washington being the second best team? Maybe I just have a bias against the pac-12 but I don’t see that at all.

                                I had the same thought. If the Playoff wasn't getting expanded, why would schools like Florida State and Clemson want to stay in a conference where even if you go undefeated you may not make the Playoff?

                                However, with the Playoff getting expanded, and conference realignment, that's not going to be a concern. The ACC is comfortably positioned as the 3rd best conference going forward. Based on 2024 conference affiliation, we have 2 B1G schools and 2 SEC schools in the Playoff.
