We'll agree to disagree. Go check out Corey Davis and Zach Terrell from WMU. They are going to beat someone up on New Year's day. They are legit.

Great running game too. PJ Fleck is going to get paid after bowl season.

That someone is going to be Penn State, adding to the angst here.

I think we should immediately-- as in next year-- go to an 8 team playoff, with at least 1 non power conference or whatever they are calling them these days school. Imagine every year, the top non power school program... Boise State, Western Michigan, etc. gets a shot vs the #1 team in the land. Well worth seeing their Rocky moment.

Furthermore, there 100% ought to be relegations in college football. North Dakota State can move up, Kansas can move down. Do that for a few years and then this playoff system will begin to make perfect sense.


I'm praying it's Penn State. Western is no joke. I like your idea, 8 teams makes more sense.

even 6 makes more sense. A bye for #1 & 2; 5 conf champs and a wild card team.

Won't be any angst from me.

Penn State's way ahead of where I thought they'd be this year. It's been a great season whether they make the playoff or not (and I expect them not to, barring a Clemson or Washington loss).

Continue to HATE the discussion of margin of victory this weekend influencing playoff berths.

As a Pitt fan, we agree that this was a great season for Penn State! :lol:

Colorado v. Washington tonight.

I think this will be worth watching and Colorado will prevail.

They have recently been fading, and I can't disagree... but Corey Davis can torch anyone at any level. The real deal.

By the way, Western Michigan is like 13 in the RPI and 10th in strength of victory-- they aren't terrible.

So much for my lame ass prediction. If Clemson wins tomorrow, OSU is the only Big 10 team going.
