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.



Houston is a much better team then many realize and will give Cincy a game

Everyone assumes Alabama will lose to Georgia but thats why they play the game

Same thing about Baylor and OSU Im not sure the Baylor passing game wont jump up and bite OSU in the butt

I dont see any way Iowa beats Michigan so they probably will

In short the only way ND gets in is if either Cincy or Michigan lose

If Alabama wins it will be interesting to see if a 1 loss Georgia team doesnt get in ahead of ND
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

I think UGA is "in" win or lose, maybe a blowout loss changes that.

at Auburn  24-22          34-10
Arky          42-35          37-0
Tenn        42-24            41-17
Florida      31-29            34-7

Scores against common opponents, offefnsive output is similar.

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.
So wait, what you really mean is now you know how the rest of the league feels about OU and UT after all these years?

I hope not

If Georgia wants in then they need to win the damn game

not many one loss teams left - Georgia would be one

especially if Baylor and Iowa win

Nope, don't care how the league feels.  Just noting the lopsided officiating in the 4th Q.  OU had plenty of self inflicted problems with a muffed punt at the 2 yard line, et al.  IMO, the season, not this game, showed OU didn't deserve the championship.  I'm looking forward to the bowl game and hope that next season they play better.

I watched the entire game with an eye on officiating favoring OSU

I didn't see it

some poor/questionable calls like always, but nothing to affirm my suspicions of the league torpedoing the Sooners

I lean to thinking the same way, but the pundits think otherwise.  And pundits can never be wrong.
