Florida is so overrated.  




No one should want to be the 4 seed.  Michigan needs to maneuver out of that spot.
Georgia kinda won that spot in a sense, really more of an 8 seed I think.
I fear Bama is not just going to win over everyone, but embarrass competent opponents.  I hope I'm wrong.

As mentioned last night on ESPN's CFP show, I'm thinking West Virginia upsets Oklahoma at home in the final game of the regular season and then the Sooners get revenge in the Big 12 championship game a week later thus eliminating each other from the playoff picture.  Or vice versa.
If Oklahoma loses to WVU and Texas wins out, it'll be Texas in a rematch vs. the 'Eers, not the Sooners, since Texas owns the H2H against OU.
And Texas could certainly beat WVU in the rematch, so the end result would still be the B12 teams most likely taking themselves out of CFP contention.

I had on ESPN last night yapping about whatever, and they had a "serious" discussion about whether Michigan or Georgia should be at 4.

Seriously?  Why in the world would that matter, at all?  I realize they have to fill time, but Australian Rules Football would be a better option.

I've really changed my "watching habits" over the years so as to ignore "expert analysis" of whatever.  It's akin to watching some show about the stock market, Expert A says blah and B say not blah.

Rant concluded, for now.

I just think it's silly to have a "serious" discussion about any of this right now.  Still over 25% of the season left for most teams that will actually be in contention, including big rivalry games and conference title games for many of them.
Having a "fun" discussion would be one thing, but a "serious" discussion?  Ugh. No thanks.

I just wish I had a dog in the fight to be interested about enough to rant

No clue where to put this, but Book is out this week against Florida State.

Seminoles suck, but is the door ajar?  Notre Dame was awful until they switched from Wimbush to Book.  Almost lost to Ball State, should have lost to Vanderbilt.

Interesting about ND.  

I agree about "fun discussions", mostly about how the Committee appears to be "thinking", but the rankings now are mostly droll really.

Georgia has one obvious path and nothing else matters for that path.
