They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Shiner had a variable playoff scheme as well.

But we all know there's no way it would work in real life, because it would make less money in the years when the number of entrants was limited, and making less money is not acceptable to TPTB.

And money is the reason for continuing to expand the field.

I hope Houston wins, and I do not like Houston.

But that's not a defense of the Committee having Cincinnati at #4.

I doubt that anyone really thinks that Baylor is among the 8-best teams either.

By its own stated criteria, the Committee doesn't get it right.

This is shaping up as the perfect season for a 2-team system.  Georgia vs. the TOSU-Michigan winner.

tOSU/Michigan have already lost games.  Why do you think they'd deserve it and not a 1-loss OU or oSu?  I don't.  Outside of Georgia, I just see a whole lot of decent but flawed teams.

If Big Matt were here, I'd offer congratulations for his Pokes' win over OU in Stillwater tonight.

Weird game.  OU's offense scored 0.0 points in the 2nd half.  Pretty disappointing performance from our offensive genius HC/OC/QB coach.

I'm about ready to believe conspiracy theories about the officiating.

Oh, well.  On to the Cheez-It Bowl.

I subjectively think that they are a notch better than those others you named.  You don't, and that's OK with me.

Condolences to the Sooners around here, and congrats to Mateo Grande.  I really didn't think the pokes would win it.

So it's Baylor vs. oSu.  You know the B12 administrative offices have got to be happy with the way this turned out.

Michigan has a solid resume now, the lone blemish to a rival in a game they should have won.  Oklahoma State has one as well, I think, one close loss.

This of course presumes they win the CG.  We will always have one loss teams in a four teamer.  Nearly.

Don't know what the committee will do, they often manage to surprise.

Right now I'd personally lean heavily toward Georgia, Michigan, and Oklahoma State.  Not sure who I'd put in that 4th spot, probably Cincy.

But as I've stated elsewhere, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the committee select a 1-loss Notre Dame ahead of a 1-loss conference champ Oklahoma State.

There is still too many opportunities for leading teams to lose to really know what the final 4 will be

For sure.  I'm just speculating based on who I think will win those games.

I think Georgia and Michigan will both win pretty handily.

OkState-Baylor will probably be pretty close but I think the Pokes will ultimately win it.

Notre Dame is done and Cincy only has Houston left, which I expect the Bearcats to win.

So given all that, I'd put Georgia, Michigan, and Oklahoma State in.  I would not put in a 2-loss non-champ Alabama, and it would be tough for me to put in Notre Dame over a Cincy team that beat them.

Congrats to Texas, TCU, Baylor, WVU, and OSU.

I said earlier I saw no evidence of biased calls against OU this year.  In the 4th quarter with OU leading, it was obvious the officials were not going to let the Sooners get to the CCG. Still, the Sooners played their best game of the year IMO.

No way detracting from OSU, they played well and have had a great season.
