    Well Ute fans. It's just one of those terrible, awful sports days. I fully expect Utah to win today to complete the terrible, awful sports day.

    What a timeout call. Yeesh. At least today wasn't a total loss.

    If Clemson wins, they're in. If Wisconsin wins, they're in. The winner of the SEC championship is in. I can't imagine a one loss Alabama team doesn't go. But if Clemson and Wisconsin were to both win, they'd have to boot out either Alabama, Oklahoma or the SEC Champ. It seems like that would be Oklahoma.

    Ohio State beating Wisconsin would make things easier, Ohio State has no chance unless Oklahoma loses to TCU. Even then, a two loss Clemson team would be more deserving.

    Oklahoma and Wisconsin both control their own destiny. Alabama is out unless Ohio State beats Wisconsin, then it will come down between them 2. No other 2 loss team has a chance.

    SEC, ACC and Big 10 championships are playoff elimination games.

    CFN has been beating the anti-bama drum hard since they lost the Iron Bowl.

    ...if Clemson, Auburn, Oklahoma and Wisconsin were good enough to get into the top four this week, and if they all win their respective conference championships, then that’s it. That’s your College Football Playoff.

    But remember, if someone else wins these championships, then that means they’ll have beaten someone amazing.

    And Alabama hasn’t.

    The best Crimson Tide win is No. 17 LSU. Yippee.

    If Miami wins, it’ll have beaten the No. 1 team in the country – Clemson. If Georgia wins, it’ll be No. 2 Auburn. And so on.

    So no matter what happens in the conference championships, including the Pac-12, all five Power Five champs will have a better win than Alabama can boast.

    There won’t be a real argument for Bama over Ohio State or TCU – both will have a stronger win than the Crimson Tide’s best win, and – if they win their respective games – they’ll each have a conference championship.

    Hard to disagree with that. Especially watching Bama play a team like Mercer prior to Auburn and still sucking the big one..

    If you're an Oklahoma or Wisconsin fan, who would you rather play in the playoff -- Alabama or Miami? If you answer Alabama, you're an idiot. Florida State was ranked #3 when they played and Alabama beat them badly. Florida State lost their QB and their season got derailed.

    Auburn may not have healthy RBs, Georgia could very well beat them. I think it's likely that Georgia could leapfrog Alabama. And again, the other playoff teams will rejoice.

    The ACC Championship is basically over and Clemson will be the #1 seed. The Big 10 Championship is still up in the air, but Ohio State is likely going to win.

    It seems like they won't want an Alabama v Clemson rematch in the first round, so Alabama will be 2 or 3. Georgia will be #4

    Maybe it's just the Big Ten Championship game. Ohio St. took the 'Bama route last year - didn't even win their division.

    Hopefully Bama makes the committee look just as silly.

    Who gives a shit that OSU won the Big 10? They got their asses kicked twice.

    yep, when you lose two games by more than two TDs, the fact you won your conference championship shouldn't matter. as a general rule they shouldn't matter. if TCU would have beat Oklahoma, it wouldn't have mattered there either.

    The PAC conference championship didn't matter yet nobody is crying over that one.

    I agree on the two loss thing. But Alabama is getting a ton of credit just for being Alabama. Honestly, if it were any other team, there would be much more controversy about a non-division winner being selected over two conference champions. They haven't really done much to be deserving of that deference this year and I think Clemson is going to make the committee look silly for the second year in a row.

    Except that they had a better record than those conf champs.

    I agreed with you and can see both arguments. I am saying substitute any other one loss team in Alabama's position and it would be more controversial; they might not even get in.

    I do feel like the committee has basically said conference championships don't matter and has also given teams like Alabama the go-ahead to schedule zero non-conference road games and play 8 home games a year. I don't like those messages.

    And it was on at prime time instead of 10:30pm at night. (Sorry, I forgot that it was on Friday and went to the local high school playoff game instead.)

    Brighton High Grad and former USC Linebacker Osa Masina was sentenced to 1 year in jail today, for sexual assault. Include this past year that he missed as he went through the legal process and its pretty much like a mission. He can return as a 21 year old sophomore.
