Hardly.

Name one.

You make the first round a home game for the higher seed and NO GAME is irrelevant.

I will not bother re-posting these, as I will just wait for the Sagarin update and then post the revised formula's version.

I am looking forward to seeing the modified version.

I will give you credit, because your's was the only poll I saw out there that had Penn St. ahead of Wisconsin.

I am saying it would make some regular season and conference championship games irrelevant...not playoff games.


The only change I could see is going to five teams. Make the 4th and 5th seed play each other the following week after conference championship week and then do the regular 4 team playoff on New Years.

Western Michigan moved up two spots to #15.


How some posters had them ranked as high as #5 is beyond me !

And I'm saying that is incorrect.

Name one game that would have been irrelevant if we had 8 this season.

The SEC championship was irrelevant this year. Most writers said Bama was going to be in regardless.

Why have a big 10 championship if no matter what Penn state does, they cant get in. Michigan would have been the second choice still more than likely.

Well for one....Rose Bowl????


If you recall two years ago OSU won 59-0 and it was an impressive enough win to get them in over another one loss team. The PSU/WISCY game was close and up in the air for 59 minutes.


Penn St. had two losses and one loss was by 39 points. In any year of the playoff 14 or 15. They wouldn't be in with 2 loses and a 39 point defeat.

One thing I wish they would do differently for bowl match-ups is I wish they would pair up the Gof5 champions against decent Power 5 competition. I don't want to see Western Kentucky play Memphis, I want to see them play Louisville or Nebraska. I don't want to see SD State play Houston, I want to see them play Colorado or Stanford.

This season we get to see AAC champs Temple (10-3) face off against 6-6 Wake Forest. IMO the AAC is the best Gof5 conference out there and to pit their champ against a 6-6 ACC team is just terrible.

They are a pretty good team and hung in there with B1G champs Penn St. earlier in the season. Give them a good game. Like a 10-2 West Virginia, who is unhappy with their matchup against 8-4 Miami.

All they had to do was beat osu and win your conference champion.

Then they be in.

But either way osu vs clemson is gonna be classic match up!

Michigan has 2 losses as well, what made them a more deserving 2 loss selection than say Penn State or Oklahoma?? Both Penn State & Oklahoma won their conferences, and each won at least 6 games straight to end the season if not more in a row, while Michigan lost 2 of 3 from mid-late November when the results are magnified by billions.
