P5 is never going to introduce a system that treats the G5 that close to equally.

Not only that but a system that unreasonably penalizes really good P5 teams.

10 Conf champs + 6 At large?
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Well well well, how the turn tables... - Micheal Scott




SEC: Alabama and Georgia are the only ones making it in. I still think Alabama needs to win out to make it in, but depending upon how their CCG goes, as well as others, they may be the first team to make it in with 2 losses. We'll see. 

big 10: Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State mostly still control their own fate. Everything will be determined over the next three weekends. Win out, and you're likely in. Lose and you're done for sure.

Big XII: Oklahoma picked a bad time to drop a game. They and OSU may climb back into the conversation, but they're going to need help. Right now, the BigXII is on the outside looking in.

Pac: Oregon has done what it needed to, and just kept winning. That win over Ohio State keeps looking better and better, but that loss to Stanford... oof. 

ACC: xxx

All others: Cincinnati still looking pretty. If they keep winning, then they should be in. ND is right there though, but will need someone else to lose to move up.

Another week, another set of changes.



SEC: I'm now more certain than ever that Alabama must win out in order to make the playoffs. If they lose to Auburn or Georgia, I don't see them getting picked. They just aren't dominant like in years past.

big 10: Michigan State is out. Only Ohio State and Michigan remain with the deciding game occurring this weekend. Winner advances to championship game (which they must also win), loser is out of the picture.

Big XII: Oofff... a shot exists, but only one stands a chance of getting in between OU/OSU. Winner will be determined this weekend.

Pac: xxx                  Did no one tell Oregon they needed to win that game?!?! Pac is out

ACC: xxx                 Wake Forest's dream season has fallen apart quickly.


All others: Cincinnati put on a show again, and should be in, but ND stands ready to take that 4th spot should any of the others listed fall.

Shooter Jones rankings as of today.

1. Georgia
2. Cinci
3. Ohio State
4. Bama

Make Georgia and Bama play round 1 to see who gets to rep the SEC, and Cinci/the OSU play to see who reps the state of lovers.

What scenario does cinci get left out?  Can OSU manhandle OU in bedlam and crap kick Baylor in the conference championship and leap frog them?

I'm just here for when Cincy does not win their next 2 games convincingly, and the committee puts Notre Dame above them saying they've "looked better" since they played each other.

Yep, I can totally see a scenario where they justify ND getting in at 4 and they get curb stomped again. Rinse, repeat.

Let's say Georgia beats Bama, Ohio State beats Michigan, and OSU wins their next 2.

Georgia, theOSU, Cinci, OSU? Right?

Or do they put Notre Dame at 4 with only 2 top 30 wins compared to 5 for Oklahoma State?

Oklahoma State winning out gets them into the playoff imo, maybe even at expense of cincy

That is how I see it playing out. I don't think ND can get in without someone else losing. They've been good, but not dominant this season. Eeking by VT and Florida State doesn't help and most people knew what was on the line when they played Cincy earlier this year, and lost. The rest of their schedule just doesn't impress.

I think Notre Dame would get in over OSU.

Also... I'd watch* the crap out of a 1 v. 16 or 3 v. 12 playoff game w/ an undefeated UTSA in it this year.

*at least the first quarter until they're down 3 possessions*

While I really really wish Bama got beat, rankings will most likely be the following this week.

1. Georgia
2. Bama
3 and 4. Michigan/Cincy.

5 and 6. Pistol Pete/Notre Dame

Georgia wins the SEC champ game, and OSU wins the B12, I think OSU gets in the 4 spot.

Obviously there's been a lot of shuffling the last few weeks, so it might just solve itself on the field this weekend.

If this is it it'll make me happy, it would mean (I hope) if bama loses and Okie State wins a playoff with UGA, Cincy, Okie St, and Michigan would finally feel like a breath a (mostly) fresh air for a playoff that has been just sucky as crap for years. No bama, no Clemson, no tOSU, drool

I think at least two of Michigan, Cincinnati, Alabama, and/or Oklahoma State will lose on Saturday.

LMAO if it's Michigan and Alabama

It's 'almost' my glorious-evil-chaos-plan going into last weekend

I'm rooting for Georgia, Cincy, Okie State, and Notre Dame.  Two of the new B12 play each other in one game and Georgia starts by destroying ND.

Big 10 getting left out and SEC only getting 1 in would be choice

A Michigan loss this weekend really wouldn't be all that surprising.

Another week, a few more surprises. The picture is almost finished.



SEC: Unless Georgia falls apart in the conference championship game, they're the only team from the SEC making it in. Alabama could create a rough scenario if they beat them, but they don't look like the team to do it.

Big 10: Michigan is it. Harbaugh picked a hell of a year to finally beat the Ohio St curse, but they still must beat Iowa in the conf champ game to make it in.

Big XII: Thanks to others losing focus, Okie Light is sitting primed to secure the 3rd spot if they take care of Baylor this weekend.

Pac: xxx 

ACC: xxx

Others: Cincy is ready to be the first G5 team to make it into the playoffs. All that stands between them and destiny is a top 25 matchup this weekend with Houston. ND is ready to take spot #4 though should any of the previously mentioned teams falter.

Oklahoma State absolutely gets in over Notre Dame, zero doubt about it. ND has no top 25 wins, their schedule is worse than Houston's.
