It’s not about being 7-1.and ranked in the AP Its about being 7-1 and not even being ranked in the playoff poll. Not even ranked…don’t think that had anything to do with the team’s spirit??
And the committees’ decision to suddenly NOW allow 3 loss teams into the poll was the last straw…There had been ONLY ONE 3 loss team in all the weeks combined, in the entire history of the poll, and THREE popped up in the FIRST week the poll came out. Are you kidding me…
WE ARE WASTING OUR TIME, OUR MONEY, OUR HEALTH GETTING SUNBURNED EVERY WEEK
It’s about the fact we have ZERO chance at winning the championship…ZERO. WE can win ALL our games for a decade and they will come up with an excuse. Z…E…R…O…
Let me put that into perspective…Imagine if the Astros won 80% of their games and were not allowed to even be in the MLB postseason. Imagine if the Texans went 13-3 and they were told…Nope…The Jaguars, Colts and Titans bring down your SOS…sorry, no playoffs for you this season.
Ditto with the Rockets.
And to add insult to injury…Our network, ESPN, which we are signed to TRASHES our conference every chance they get while also running our content at a discount…I really hope we sign with NBC and THEY actually invest in our conference. This week did it for me.
I am just beyond pissed…I’m just sick of all the politics in college football.
Novel idea…8 team playoff…ALL P5 Conference Champions get a spot. The best of the G5 gets a spot and 2 wild cards… or NO Wild cards if you want to leave at 6 with 2 getting a bye.
Notre Dame…get your arse into a conference …It’s no fair that you are the chosen Independent but BYU isn’t. BYU get your arse into a conference as well. You must win your Conference to get an automatic spot.
Even at the P5 level, can anyone hang with Alabama??..29-0 over the THIRD ranked LSU. The Big 12 is a defensive cluster…the PAC is garbage, the Big 10 is top heavy, and the ACC (minus FSU and Clemson) is used to pimp Notre Dame. It really a P1 (SEC), almost a P (B1G 10), inspires to be a P (Big 12, ACC, PAC)
I’m sick of it…And i haven’t even talked about our craptastic coaching staff or their lack of vision yet.
