Maybe next year. 12-0 sure was fun while it lasted, though!
Maybe if we had a decent qb. I can not deal with another two years of Hornibrook.

That really was the difference, too, wasn't it? The plays were there, but time and again the ball just wasn't.

It's definitely going to be Ohio State at no. 4.

The win over undefeated Wisconsin negates the bad loss to Iowa and they should have higher SOS than Alabama. Alabama was hurt by both Auburn and Fresno State losing today.

This is just ESPN and a few other media outlets drumming up an agenda- an agenda to create controversy and give fans a reason to care before the pairings are announced. Alabama easily is in and we'll have yet again a Clemson-Bama match-up, only this time in the semis. Auburn may well in fact even finish higher than Ohio St.

After last year and this year (I am assuming Alabama gets in), a team should need to win their conference to be considered. This situation just proves that they need to expand the playoff to 8 teams. That way all power 5 conference champions would get in plus 3 at-large bids. Sure there would be some arguing, but I'd rather argue over who gets the 8th spot vs. arguing over which power 5 conference should get left out, or even worse see 2 schools from the same conference get in.

1. Clemson
2. Oklahoma
3. Georgia
4. Ohio State
5. USC
6. Alabama
7. Penn State
8. UCF

I think that would be a playoff lineup that few would argue about.

I don't think Bama moves into the top four. They got beat pretty big to Clemson and because of that locked out of the SEC title game. I think Ohio gets in.

Alabama being among the top four teams is an ESPN agenda. First, Alabama has not made a case to qualify this season. They did not win the Southeastern Conference championship. They did not win the SEC West. Second, ESPN has directional issues. Its ratings are down. Its programming is lame. Constantly promoting Alabama has ran its course.

Since we're all allowed an opinion, here's my Final Top Four.
Every team is from a different conference.
We will now have our first 2 loss team.
Eliminate the Ohio State / Alabama controversy.

1. Clemson (ACC)
2. Oklahoma (Big 12)
3. Georgia (SEC)
4. USC (Pac 12)
