Pretty safe I would say to put Clemson in at this point, along with Georgia and Oklahoma. Wisconsin can make this a non-topic of debate by winning. Now though, if they lose... I would still take a 3 loss Auburn team had their loss today come down to the wire. But the way they lost, I think Alabama gets in. Odd, just a week removed from how thoroughly they were outplayed by Auburn and hence Auburn earned the SEC championship appearance. But after today's performance, Alabama still moves ahead in the pecking order. I still do not believe for a split second that OSU is getting in if they beat Wisconsin.

IF Ohio State gets in it'll be the biggest crock of $#!t the NCAA has ever put out.

I don't care if you've played 3 games against Kansas school of the deaf, 3 games against Dakota school of mining, 3 games against University of Phoenix (the on-line college) and 3 games against the Utah school of the blind. 12-0 is 12-0 I don't give a flying %$#k who they've played. If OSU holds onto beat Wisconsin UCF will be the ONLY unbeaten left, there is no way you can put in a 2 loss team (especially when no 2 loss team has EVER made the playoff) with a 30 point loss to a 7-5 team and leave out the only FBS unbeaten, it just CANNOT happen. Undefeated, should mean something, right??

Ohio state does not deserve to be in...I was wrong. Put in USC or Bama.

I'll eat crow. Although I stand by the arguments I made this week.

Game should be a 20-30 point win.

Last year we had a Ohio State get in over Penn State, even though Penn State won the Big Ten title. This year we are probably (if the score holds) going to have Alabama get in even though they did not win their conference. This is worse than last year given it will mean 2 schools from the same conference get in and not 1 but 2 power 5 conferences get shutout of the playoff.

Just for giggles, put in UCF. I mean, hey, they're undefeated.

Let UCF keep their undefeated season.

It certainly seems like OSU is going to get in. The guys on TV kept talking about this game like it's "win and you're in." Doesn't seem like they were giving Alabama any chance.

I think Bama will get the nod from the committee, but I think with a 4 team playoff you should have to win your conference to get in. I think USC or Ohio State should get the nod. Last year I thought PSU should have gone instead of OSU.

If it was an 8 team playoff, you could have the 5 power conference championship teams, a school like UCF that goes undefeated, and Alabama get in. There would still be a lot of argument over that 8th seed, so I guess nothing is perfect.

Well, I knew all along that tonight would be the night we would find out how good the Badgers really are. Turns out they're still not good enough.

Maybe next year. 12-0 sure was fun while it lasted, though!

Last year Ohio State had a win at Oklahoma, who won the Big 12, and they lost to Penn State after a block FG late in the game. Penn State won the conference.

Bama doesn't have a similar win this year, and the team they lost to didn't win the SEC title.

One of Ohio State's losses was to Oklahoma who will be in playoffs so I don't think that hurts OSU much.
