Hoss, I was explaining to you that the committee has nothing to do with point spreads which was YOUR concern. I stated that ONLY Las Vegas and other bookmakers do point spreads.

The committee is the process which we've ALL been given. We have no choice but to accept what the committee does -- right or wrong.

The committee gets together and aligns the Top 25 teams. They give us the Top 4.

You're upset because the committee leap-frogged Alabama with Georgia. Your beef is with the committee.

Got it?

So here's the week 11 recap:

ACC: Is there any doubt Miami isn't a legitimate threat now?? I think the last 2 weeks have ended all doubt on that front. Both Clemson & Miami should be top 5 ranked next week (if not top 4) and is shaping up to be a winner take all ACC championship game, and which means the ACC should get at least 1 team into the Playoff: The only way I could see where that might be in doubt is if Clemson loses to South Carolina, but then beats Miami.

Big 12: So long TCU. As long as Oklahoma wins their remaining games along with a rematch with TCU or Oklahoma State in Arlington the Sooners WILL be in the playoff.

Big 10: Wisconsin still holding the conference banner and they likely STILL need help to get in. Definitely did not help themselves with their poor OOC schedule. You knew their conference schedule was going to be bad since their division stinks and they didn't have cross over games with Penn State, Ohio State, or Michigan State.

Pac 10: Playoff hopes officially died early in the 4th quarter on Friday night in Stamford, but unofficially died a couple weeks ago when USC got blown out in South Bend by Notre Dame. After that game, I figured the Pac 12 was going to be in trouble.

SEC: Still have 3 teams alive for the playoff, but the 2 teams that played at Auburn on Saturday are trending in different directions. Alabama is safe. Barring an unforeseen loss to their Sun Belt/FCS opponent next weekend they are a lock for the playoffs even IF they lose @ Auburn. In that case, the only thing left to decide is whether the SEC title game winner (between Auburn & Georgia in that case) is joining Alabama in the playoff. So, let's go through Auburn & Georgia. After Saturday's game Auburn is more likely to get in over the Dogs. As I said last weekend if they beat Georgia, Alabama & than Georgia again in Atlanta, even with 2 losses they would be in the playoff. Depending on what happens elsewhere Georgia may get in, but no matter what happens elsewhere IF Auburn beats Alabama & than Georgia again they will be in the playoff. In either case, Auburn & Georgia have no margin of error.

Others: Notre Dame. Enjoy your BCS bowl Irish. Try again next year.

My projected rankings:
#1) Alabama
#2) Oklahoma
#3) Clemson
#4 ) Miami.
Just missing the cut
#5) Auburn
#6) Georgia
#7) Notre Dame
#8) Wisconsin

Alabama is the clear #1 team in college football. I have Oklahoma slightly above Clemson due to their schedule, but 2 vs. 3 really doesn't matter in the long run. I want to put Auburn #4 but I couldn't do it for 2 reasons: #1) Miami is undefeated, while Auburn has 2 losses, and #2) Auburn has that ghastly loss to LSU in which they blew a 20-0 lead. The first ranking proved the head-to-head mattered which is why I had Auburn above Georgia (head to head win) and Georgia above Notre Dame (head-to-head win). The Wisconsin schedule still stinks. The Iowa win is OK, but unfortunately it's not Oklahoma @ Ohio State, or Auburn vs. Georgia good, and Michigan is OK too, but they sure as hell aren't great either. And likely playing a 2 loss Ohio State in the Big 10 championship game unfortunately isn't going to be all that great for them either. It will suck for Wisconsin going 13-0 and missing the playoff but they probably need Auburn to lose to Alabama, Georgia to lose to either Georgia Tech or Alabama, and than Stanford to beat Notre Dame because even if Auburn & Georgia lose I would probably STILL take a 2 loss ND over an undefeated Wisconsin just because the schedule was so much better.

Notre Dame looked so out of their league and I just would be shocked if they were ranked ahead of Wisconsin. That would create a furor. We all know Wisconsin hasn't beaten anyone better than Iowa, but a two loss ND team coupled with the way they loss and really, while they have beaten several good teams, I wouldn't call any pf Notre Dame's wins "signature" either. This should be at some point too about who you think is the better team and not what athletic director scheduled the most competitive schedule.

^^No way Auburn ends up No. 5...not with two losses AND a head-to-head loss against Clemson.

It's possible Wisconsin ends up No. 4, but I doubt it because of their SOS.

Top 7 is clear cut. That's all that matters, except probably watching Ohio State's need to beat Michigan to best possibly boost Wisconsin's resume should they finish undefeated. In some ways, order does not matter as the SEC remaining games and Miami vs Clemson probably will sort a lot out. Be most curious how far Georgia falls...top 4 still? Perhaps only 6th? 7th would make for interesting discussion, because that would require them falling behind Auburn. Auburn spanked Georgia, but has one more loss in the same conference. But some may not consider Georgia's win at ND all too impressive now, given ND's performance last night. But again, the coming Result or results for Auburn will sort that dilemma out. Georgia or Auburn win out, either would be in. Either lose, they will be out.

That's my thinking right now.

I'd put Georgia at No. 6 behind Wisconsin. Even though they suffered a bad loss, I don't see them tumbling too far from the top. I could see ND ending up around the No. 8-9.

If Auburn wins out, that means Alabama doesn't play for the SEC Championship.

That's where Alabama's schedule could be trouble.

Right now, my eyes, they have one quality win.. Yesterday over Mississippi State. You can't count that win against FSU and LSU.. kinda bizarre to me that they're ranked.

A case could be made.. Clemson wins out.. Oklahoma wins out, Auburn wins out and Wisconsin wins out.

Who's in?

I would guess in that case Wisconsin would be left out. They will be in the same boat as Alabama with few quality wins.
