The problem is once you get into conference play, itís all confirmation bias because all you play is who is in your conference. If there are 7 SEC teams in the top 25 in week 4 when conference play starts, ďmy, didnít all those teams play a tough schedule.Ē

    Iíd love it if OU was squeezed out. But it wouldnít be right. Wisconsin lost to Illinois.

    Everyone is clamoring for an eight team playoff. And I’m all for that myself. But what we have right now is effectively that with these conference championship games. I think any team that doesn’t win in their conference championship game has effectively lost a playoff game. That’s why I’m not for OSU getting in if they lose tonight.

    I agree with everything you wrote except for your second-to-last sentence.

    That was pedestrian compared to Clemson's Higgins in the first half.

    Wisconsin looking like the team I thought they were. A team thatís no better than 10th in the nation, if that. Iíd take any one of about a half dozen SEC teams over them.

    You do realize Wisconsin is playing the no.1 ranked team in the nation, right? A team that is not only undefeated, but hasnít really even been challenged all year while crushing their opponents at historic levels. And Wisconsin is still only down by 3 points.

    Is Georgia, a team that got annihilated today, one of those half dozen SEC teams you would so readily take over Wisconsin? I personally think that would be a very close game.

    What hook? I didnít expect them to give OSU a game. To my delight they did just that for the entire 1st half. But alas, they seem to have reverted to form in the 2nd.

    What form are you referring to? Theyíve beaten several good teams this year while losing only twice ó by one point on the road and the other to undefeated powerhouse Ohio State.

    Absolutely. And if we are really going to get into it, Iíll state for the record I think the SEC is so far superior to the Big Ten that Iíd take LSU, Georgia, and a healthy Alabama in a relatively easy win over OSU any day of the week and twice on Sundays. Heck, Iíd take even money on Florida and Auburn beating OSU as well.

    OSU may have started the day as #1, but Iíll be darned if they are any higher than #3 come tomorrow. If not, call for a congressional investigation.

    #3, huh? Behind Clemson? Who has Clemson beaten? Who did they play today, a JV team? Ohio State has a roster absolutely bursting at the seams with NFL players. Not sure why youíre trying to discredit them.

    While I agree with you that tOSU is overrated, I think you'll be disappointed that an investigation won't occur. I do think after today that it will be LSU-OU & Clemson-tOSU.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    What difference does it make whether tOSU is ranked #2 or #3? Either way, they'll face Clemson in the semifinal game. Based on the results of today's games, in which LSU beat a higher-ranked team on what is virtually its home turf in far more convincing fashion, I don't think there should be much debate that LSU should now be the #1-ranked team in the CFP.

    I totally agree with you. I'm ok with LSU jumping to #1 but unless something really nutty happens in the next 10 minutes of football, Ohio State is #2. Though it doesn't really matter whether you are 2 or 3.

    I have heard a lot about what a great coach Riley is at Oklahoma and how the NFL would love him. Assuming they are 4 and play LSU (or even if they play one of the other top teams), it will be interesting to see what his team can do with 3 weeks to prepare.

    Oh it wonít matter in the long run whether OSU is ranked number two or number three. Personally I think Clemson easily passed them today with their dominant performance. But I wonít argue the point. As long as LSU is number one everything else will sort itself out.
