Bama shouldn't be in, regardless. They've had a really easy schedule, and they haven't looked as good as they have in years past. Plus, playing Mercer in week 11? Come on. Talk about cake walks.

But the committee has a stiffy for the SEC.

Scott, I'm just providing my opinion. It just happens to differ from yours, though I respect it. No need to delete what you posted.

If it came across as know-it-all-esque, my apologies. I've had a rough few days here, and my fuse has been a bit short. It's all good.

Alabama's SoS is open for debate, however the SEC East is down this year ( as is the conference ) and each team does not play each other in the division each year. That's just scheduling and how the conference breaks it down.

I'm not going to penalize a team for playing a cupcake at the end of the season or reward them playing the same team at the beginning of the season. Nor will I penalize them for not " looking as good " as they have in previous years. They are still an 11-1 team, not 10-2 or 9-3, records of teams everyone seems to love.

Not a Bama homer here, MIZZOU thru and thru.

I also think with all things being equal. If i a team was ranked top 3 or whatever for a longer period of time versus another team with the exactly the same everything else, that the team ranked in top 3 or so gets the edge over the other team.

The reason being they were facing the best effort for a longer period of time from their opponents then the other team. This year Alabama every game was facing the best efforts of the season from many or all of their opponents.

The same cant be said for u. of miami/ UCF etc. Again, i just using this as a tiebreaker in the event everything else is even. I think Miami faced that with Pitt last week. If Miami plays Pitt 5 weeks ago, i dont think the pitt effort is the same. Bama deals with super effort against them every week.

Any given Sun...er, Saturday. Wisconsin beat the snot out of an Iowa team that embarrassed OSU. Stranger things have happened, and this is not the team that OSU spanked in the BiG10 Championship in '14.

I would give a year of my life to see the Badgers destroy Ohio State. There are three teams I literally hate: the Minnesota Vikings, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Plus, I don't like the Michigan Wolverines, or the Miami Hurricanes much.

If the most beautiful woman I've ever seen wanted to marry me, and she was an Ohio State fan, I'd tell her to take a hike!
I think it's highly unlikely any beautiful women are Ohio State fans.

In Wisconsin bucks have buckeyes and nice racks.

Unless my memory has vapor locked (a distinct possibility) Ohio State was hoisted over a higher ranked Penn State last year on the grounds that the committee felt they were the better team.

For my 2 cents Alabama should be in over Ohio State. We shall see.

A local sports radio big shot here in NY claimed during the week that on a neutral field Alabama would be favored over any other contenders. I think he's correct. They lost at a bad time. That doesn't translate to them necessarily being excluded in my opinion.

I'm a big UGA fan anyway. Been so only since 2012. Superstorm Sandy had walloped us in NJ and the power was out for 8 days by me. Was getting real chilly at night in the old farmhouse. Was sitting in the car at a local supermarket that somehow had power when a huge convoy of enormous white power utility trucks came rumbling down the street. Large black letters on the side GEORGIA POWER. Electric was back on with 30 minutes. The cavalry!
Go Dawgs.
