    What we thought we would see when the season started....Bama is best, Clemson is second best.  Hoping for a great title matchup.

    I am going to assume, for my own sanity, that you also meant we also knew we would see the Irish back in the playoffs as well. Just let me have that, if only for tonight.

    Is Jim Harbaugh the Brian Kelly of the B1G? Recruits well and leads a big time program....to absolutely nowhere in marquee matchups.

    Ha!  Sorry, brother, I did not expect the Irish to have such a good season.

    Likely not as much as knowing that ND lost by fewer points to Clemson than Ohio State lost to Purdue. That's just crazy.

    Not a good day for my Cocks. So glad Bentley will be out going forward. Here is to 2019. 

    And Notre Dame? What the hell was that? Pathetic, but expected with them and bowl games. 

    Come on Oklahoma 
    Yeah, that was a horrible game. I can't believe UVa shut us out.

    How is Bentley out though? Did he declare for the draft (which would be a bad decision imo)?

    Damn, in my head I thought he was a Senior for some reason. He is a Junior and still has a season left in the pocket, ugh. It’s not all on him, but I think it’s time for someone else.

    I was wondering if you thought Joyner or Hilinski would beat him out. I don't think that will happen, but you never know.

    No, their starting QB wasn't playing.

    They did hang in there though so theres that.

    Good game.  3 guys ejected in the first half, the LSU QB almost got taken out.

    What a game.

    LSU was missing something like 9 starters on defense and had another player ejected. LSU mistakes kept UCF in the game plus the pick 6 that should of been called back. Reguardless if the score UCF does not belong in the playoffs

    One close game doesn't end all talk of teams like UCF belonging in the playoff.  They put up a better fight and played a better game than both Notre Dame and Oklahoma.  The last two seasons proved they do belong in the discussion.  Along with the many seasons of Utah, TCU, and Boise State beating up on teams in bowl games during the BCS era.  What does it hurt to put them in the playoff? Certainly no more than putting two Power 5 teams that got blown out.  If we gather anything from this weekend, it's that Notre Dame needs to stop getting special treatment and getting invited to BCS & CFP games.  They've gone 0-8 with an average margin of loss of nearly 21 points in their last 8 "New Year Six" bowl games.  If anyone doesn't belong in the discussion, it's them.

    I couldn't agree more.

    Notre Dame is way hyped.  They continually get their asses handed to them.

    CFU w their starting QB in the game I'd think that the game is theirs.

    Lots of stupid mistakes by both teams though with the ejections.

    Do you think that UCF wins w/their starting QB and LSU NOT having more than half of their Defense out to await the draft?
    I do not.

    That being said, that was one heck of a game, especially the 1st half.  Some baffling non-calls by the refs.

    I think there should (and will) continue to be debate about who belongs in the playoff, and that is OK.  Texas beat Georgia, and everyone screaming about ND and OU really was saying they thought UGA should be in and not UCF.  Never know.  Debate on this is good and let the top 1-2 teams fight for it.  (Vs. the way it used to be done when only they were in contention.)

    So happy to see Urban out.  They tried like hell to let UW back in control but did just enough to hold them off.  The sport is better when the traditional powers play consistent roles so I hope that they will stay in the hunt annually with the new coach.  Wouldn't hurt to see Penn St or Michigan try to make the next step up on OSU, having those three all be good is only good for the conference and the sport.

    Will never understand the argument against a playoff in College Football (Division 1, since all other levels have playoffs). I know the bowl "money" is what is stopping it, but I have to think a playoff would bring in even more money.   So many bowls were half empty or more, with terrible ratings. And there are reports all the time of schools losing money by attending them.

    By that account they should shrink all the playoffs for all other sports too. No need for college basketball to have a month long tournament or conference tournaments. We know who the best teams are by now.  The best teams have passed the eye test already like they do in football. Same with baseball, soccer, hockey, etc.

    I also think a 4 team playoff is intended to encourage conferences from ditching these horrendous joke games....unfortunately, the SEC is so much stronger than other conferences that their best team will always be able to schedule a 2nd tier school (or 3) and still make the playoff if they are great.
    Why would Alabama even consider dropping fuckless teams like UL-Lafayette, The Citadel, and Arkansas State from their schedule (they played all 3 this year) when their conference shows, with consistency, in bowl games that any team able to go through their schedule and championship game with either 0 or 1 losses deserves to be in?

    I don't know how to fix this, really.  It is not Bama's fault.  Who blames them?  Until other conferences can make it a contest again I think this will continue to be an issue.  Clemson is out of their minds good -- but they are one team in that conference.  VA Tech and Miami need to get back to being top level teams.

    Best two teams the last 4 years are Clemson and Bama.  Everyone is a second tier team.

    That is why the playoffs shouldn't be expanded.  Try competing with these two teams first then you can expand the playoffs.
