    Georgia wins and there won’t even be controversy over Alabama getting in. Oklahoma list to a 4-loss team. Ohio State to a 6 loss team. I think it would be the easiest 4 teams to select since the playoffs started.

    I just counted and out of ISU's 13 bowls, 4 of them could be considered road games with two of them actually in the home team's stadium (last year and Boise bowl).

    Alabama in Louisianna is the closest to a home game I didn't count.

    And this is really the only game against a top team to base them off of since their next best opponent was LSU.

    I beleive they're placed in the order of their chances to make the playoffs at the time I looked at it. Georgia would be 6th, because they don't have a great chance to win vs. Alabama per the model, where OU already won and passed ND, and OSU has a very good chance to beat NW. Once the SEC Championship is completed Alabama will be #1 or down to #6 - similar outcome for Georgia.

    Regardless of if Alabama makes a game of this and wins somehow, it's clear to me that Clemson should be #1 if they roll Pitt like they should.

    Yep. Alabama's looked great against a schedule mix of easy teams and often overrated competition- that competition usually seeing inflated rankings by the 8 game schedules in the SEC and the fact that pollsters provided almost no punishment to teams who lost to Alabama.

    Oklahoma has beaten every team they played. They would deserve it over Bama.

    That's the thing that in my opinion is BS about taking 2 teams from the same conference. You shouldn't have to beat the same team twice. ...wasnt the case last year (Auburn beat Alabama), but might be a thing this year if Georgia wins and Alabama gets in.

    If Georgia boat races Bama...then we can talk about something. If it is close...nope.

    LOL! People will use that argument no matter how many teams are in a playoff! It started with, “Gee, polls deciding a national championship game doesn’t work!” Then it was, “Oh gosh, there are problems with the top two teams fighting it out”, and now it’s “We need to expand the playoffs!”

    No matter what the system is there is always going to be aproblemwith it. Every “fix” someone will think we “need” more.

    Yep, even with all the teams invited to the NCAA Basketball tournament, there is still grumbling. Expanding the playoff will never, ever “fix” everything.

    Why would you run a fake punt with 1) 4th and 11, 2) 3 minutes left in the game, 3) on your own 48, 4) against a team that has the momentum and 4) against a defense playing punt safe?

    I understand going for the win but that was just dumb by Smart!
