many times it takes a little luck just to make the 4-team playoff
Yes, it can.  Some very good teams have missed out, and a few mediocre teams got in, not so many of the latter.

By mediocre, I mean a rather good team, but not an elite team.  I think most of the picks have been elite or near elite, with a couple exceptions, who I think got walloped.

Imagine your team gets picked by dint of going 13-0 in a bad conference with several "lucky close wins" and then you face Bama/OSU/Clemson in round one.

Oops.

I don't (yet) think Smart is a great coach.  He's not a bad coach.  He has a wealth of talent and is in the "almost" category now.  He has made some curious calls.

One thing I don't read about in Athens now is players constantly getting into trouble.  At times it was rather trivial trouble, but it was a litany of troubles in the off season under Richt.

The question gets into, do we not read about them because they don't happen, or is there less holding kids accountable in public ways? 

The thing with Smart is he's there because 10-2 isn't good enough. He's had one very good year, and his next best season ... they got destroyed by a team without much passing game or lost close to a 4-8 team with no offense? It's not a super fair spot to be in, but that's the deal he had going in.

It WAS rigged! 
Probably lives in rural Pennsylvania.  
Upset that BYU was so low in the initial playoff poll.
Just wants all the legal votes counted, maybe BYU moves up, who knows?

Essentially what's happened to Notre Dame twice now. Once in the BCS era and once in the CFP.

Got utterly smoked both times.

The situations under Richt were with the Athens Police Dept in the main, which some fans claimed picked on players, or blacks, or whatever.  They'd have 3-4-5 players suspended for two games for DUI or MJ or whatever.  

And yes, expectations are super high in Athens.  And questions are being asked about why Daniels didn't play earlier.  I'm not asking them because I realize I don't have enough information.  Either I trust the HC, or I don't and think he should be fired.

I was ready for Richt to go.  The Dawgs averaged 12 wins a year the past three years, so it wouldn't make sense to me to fire him.

What I imagine the one that calls this the “echo Chamber” looks like. 

Lives in a Metro area, and knows 2 words, but repeats them often:

RACIST RACIST RACIST!!

RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA!!

Cries a lot.

Looks like an Andy Dick character. But is an actual, real person.

You're not very good a caricaturing me....you know, someone who has empathy for others.  The ignorant aren't ignorant because of anything they've done.  They've been indoctrined, exposed to one way of thinking, and populate echo-chambers of confirmation bias.  


But let's pretend I'm wrong.

Cincy, Smart is fine, what are you even pondering?  A few down games in a bizzaro-world season shouldn't get anyone fired, imo.  
Franklin shouldn't be fired, Harbaugh shouldn't, no one, unless they're caught with their zipper down or shooting up.  This is a throwaway year.
