With the committee's first rankings unveiled last week and with the shake-up in the Big Ten last night, now is a good time to get this discussion going.

 

It looks like multiple teams will have strong arguments for the top 4, and I continue to be fascinated by a potential SEC Championship game between an undefeated Alabama and an undefeated Georgia. You would assume both teams would make the Playoff in that scenario (no matter who wins, barring a blowout), but what if you've also got:

  • undefeated, Big 10 champ Wisconsin
  • undefeated, ACC champ Miami
  • 1-loss, Big 12 champ Oklahoma

Can you justify kicking out one of those in favor of a 1-loss SEC team that didn't win its conference?

Miami needs to lose.

 

That Notre Dame game next week is going to be fun. That's a playoff game, essentially, for both teams. A 2-loss Notre Dame doesn't make the Playoff, and I don't think a 1-loss ACC champ Miami would either.

Absolutely. Wisconsin doesn't make it in that scenario, IMO.

Oh man, the salt if a 1-loss SEC runner-up team gets in over a P5 champion is going to be insane.

If Wisconsin continues to win, beating OSU in the B1G Championship, they deserve to be in the playoffs. I'm not too sure if they can do that because Hornibrook remains a huge question for the team. The defense is great and Johnathan Taylor has been lighting it up though.

Who says OSU is getting in the conf championship game?

If there's chaos at the end of the season, we should say hello to a true and final 8-team playoff.

I'm all for expanding the playoffs, but an 8-team format would only lead to more controversy, because more teams would have legitimate claims to the top 8.

Honestly I like the 4 team playoff. I initially wanted a bigger one but I think 4 is the right number. Keeps it exclusive and I don't think there's been a team that really has gotten screwed out of a possible title since it was made.

Only argument for an 8-team playoff is to include undefeated teams from non P5 conferences. Gives teams like last year's Western Michigan a shot to show what they're worth. That said, allowing in 3 more lesser teams isn't worth that.

They didn't show up. It happens. Where was OSU last week? Oh yeah, choking on their asses. At least MSU everyone knew we weren't going this year. Have fun watching OSU get screwed over, same with wisconsin. Whoever bandwagon you jump on.

Someone's a bit testy. If you notice, I'm a Packers fan as well a Badgers fan so not jumping on any bandwagons. Been a Wisconsin fan since I was little.

There isn't much talk of CFB on this forum period. Some happens in the shout box but that's about all that happens. Bringing up a game that happened 6 years ago? Nice. Remind me, how did that Big Ten Championship game go again? How did that game against Wisc go for MSU last year? Oh ya, 30-6.

Georgia must be perpetually cursed. They lose games they shouldn't have under Richt. Get rid of him, bring in a new guy, and still lose.

:rog:

Also sucks cuz Auburn isn't beating both #1 Georgia and #1 Bama in the same season. They wasted their win on the wrong team.


I still contend that Miami isn't any good, but I don't have anything to back it up with.
