2015 NCAAF: Week 12

Recommended Posts

Yeah, that was 2010. I always rooted for non-BCS teams to make it to the National Title. That one was a particularly disappointing loss to watch. Oh how the kicking game can kill you.

 

2010 wasn't all bad though because that was the beginning of my South Carolina Gamecocks winning a lot including the East Division. Those days seem so long ago...

Boise vs. Cammy Cam would've been hilarious.

Not to mention trying to block Nick Fairly with 280 lbs O-linemen.

I still don't know how the Boise kicker missed both those kicks vs Nevada. From the live angle, I thought he made the first one he "missed" at which point I thought the NCAA were out to screw Boise.

TCU with Andy Dalton went 13-0 and won the Rose Bowl. They received some first place votes in the final AP poll.  Utah received 16 first place votes in the final AP the year they beat Alabama.

Cam would have been hard to beat for sure. God I hated the 2010 Auburn team. SC played them TWICE. The first one was early in the year and really close. I think Cam, McCaleb, and Dyer all had 80 yards rushing or more. Something crazy like that. Then the embarrassing hail mary at the end of the half in the title game....

They were playing in Nevada...

I remember. Didn't Wittingham get shit for voting Utah one in the Coaches poll at the end of the year?

I think so. Well the coaches are supposed to vote for whoever wins the title game, yeah. But it was often debatable whether another team deserved to be mentioned. The playoff is supposed to cut back on that but...

I think they should expand it to 64 teams like the basketball tournament even with only 1/3 as many teams to choose from. Imagine the pointless blowouts you'd see and an extra 7 games to win the title, you'd have people ready to die on the field by the time they got to the finals.

To be fair, Alabama is happy to travel (home & home with Penn State, multiple neutral site games). The rest of the SEC, not so much.

Well, of that six, we know Iowa and Ohio potentially will have an essentially quarterfinal game of they win out.

But there's still a real risk of the winner of Bedlam (assuming they both win next week) getting passed over.

Florida moved up to #8 as expected and if they win out they will be in. But the odds of them winning out are very low. TCU is getting SCREWED.  I know they have injuries now and that's part of the ranking but down to #18 with only the one loss?  Come on.

They struggled against a winless Kansas team. They're lucky they made the top 25.

Yeah but Boykin didn't play pretty much the entire game. No Boykin and an injured Doctson.  It shows you how much it's been a two-man show but to move them all the way down to 18 I disagree with that.

Florida beat a terrible Vandy team by 2 points, and that didn't drop them. The people in "charge" of this process use whatever convenient excuse they want to keep teams they don't want in the final four out.

 

Michigan, who needed Minnesota to gift them a game to stay at 2 losses, is 6 spots ahead of a team who comfortably beat Minnesota, has one loss, and plays in a power conference? C'mon man, and I say that as someone who would cheer for Michigan well before I would cheer for TCU. Shit, Michigan shouldn't be ahead of Utah.

 

Navy over TCU is ridiculous too.

The Okie State gif is awesome. They need to keep winning so you can try and top that.

Michigan shouldn't be #12. They needed a miracle against Minnesota, double OT against Indiana, and have 2 losses. And they definitely shouldn't be ahead of Utah since they lost to the Utes, even if I think Michigan would win a rematch.

Doesn't matter though - #12 with 2 losses might as well be #73 since only the top 4 matter.

I would love for Michigan to win out and keep Ohio and Iowa both out of the CFP. Having said that, I would love for Iowa to to get in and leave them stuck with Kirk Ferentz for another decade.

I can't disagree about Florida struggling with Vandy but really their resume up to this point is not a whole lot different than Alabama. The Tide lost at home to Ole Miss and they beat LSU. Florida lost to LSU but killed Ole Miss. Both killed Georgia.  The Tide has the season opener win against the Badgers that is starting to look like a solid win so no issue with them being ranked ahead of the Gators but if you're going to have Bama in the top 4 then Florida has to be pretty close to it.

 

Florida isn't going to win out anyway so none of this will mean anything.

You people are massively underselling how bad Kansas is. Vanderbilt has four more wins than Kansas. Neutral field, the Commodores would beat the Jayhawks by four touchdowns.

You struggle with Kansas, you don't belong in the top twenty five.

I wonder why they got rid of Mangino. They were awful when he got there. Then somehow he turns them into a winner (even won the Orange Bowl right?)  and then he has one losing season and now they're back to being trash.

Wasn't there some controversy or scandal?
