I wish that OSU had shown up all season, but they always prepare for this game differently. Michigans offense is stuck in the 1980's. I thought this game was going to be a lot closer, but nope

Notre Dame is going to beat USC. Which conference will join the Pac 12 and be left out of the playoff? It will either be the Big Ten or the Big 12 more than likely. Let the OU vs. Ohio State debate begin.

Too early to tell. I don't like looking at the polls until mid-season chiefly because, for the most part, they are little more than a ranking of SID departments and their ability to pimp their schools.

I knew this would happen: all this overreaction to one game. Michigan in my mind had never even proven a thing all season, yet by beating them, we have our usual overreaction to what happened in the past 15 minutes. And for a second straight season, suddenly in a blink of an eye, Ohio State suddenly is somehow a viable playoff contender. I guess I have to buy in to Oklahoma to some degree: someone has to be in contention besides Central Florida, but it amazes me in recent seasons, it’s become a real struggle to identify just four solid I-A football teams. My eyes don’t deceive me, and unless something makes me really have to take another hard look at Alabama/Georgia, I think the loser of the SEC championship game is far more deserving than Ohio St/Oklahoma. Especially given those two tesms’ swiss cheese defenses.

The committee isn't gonna put in a two-loss Georgia team if they lose to Alabama.

Sure they can. There is no rule they canít. Auburn was ranked in the top four last season with two losses, heading into the SEC Championship. If Georgia loses to Alabama, particularly if itís close, they may well be deemed better than a one loss Oklahoma/Ohio St. Georgia has no common opponents when compared to Ohio St/Oklahoma. So it makes it particularly fruitless to be ranking pecking order simply by number of losses just as much as to elevate C. Florida among the top 4 because it has fewer losses than all but three other programs.

And for the second straight season, OSU has an ugly loss on their resume.

Yeah, but if you're gonna trash Ohio State for an ugly loss to Purdue. You can't give Georgia a pass for losing the regular season finale to Georgia Tech and losing the SEC Championship game to Alabama just because they're an SEC team.
