    The media’s championing of Notre Dame’s huge win over a team that lost to FSU and Virginia as the reason they’ll get in the CFP, even with a loss to Clemson, is a bit odd.

    it was dumb to consider any team for the playoff that would only play half a season in the first place :twocents:

    Texas A&M folks need to understand that their beef can’t be with ND.

    At best, the only way the two teams become comparable is if Clemson also beats the shit out of ND like Bama did to A&M (28 point differential). At that point, ND would still have more wins than Texas A&M, and a 1-1 record with Playoff teams. It’s still an advantage heavily in ND’s favor.

    Texas A&M has no path to the Playoff without ND getting in and going undefeated.

    you think a&m should be ranked above notre dame right now? Are we really having this discussion?

    they jump Nd if Nd gets beat and a&m gets some impressive wins but right now this is completely dumb

    There are only two possible scenarios where A&M jumps ND...

    - Florida beats Bama and Clemson destroys ND, which ensures both teams are 1-1 against Playoff teams and the loss are both blowouts

    - ND loses 2 of their next 3

    The first option knocks A&M out of the Playoff because both UF and Bama make it in. The second scenario is extremely unlikely, especially if ND cancels their game with Wake (which becomes a strong possibility if Clemson doesn’t play FSU).

    A&M is unlikely to make the Playoff in both scenarios.

    But obviously a&m would be ranked much higher if the committee put more value on convincing losses.

    How about wins and losses? That do anything for you? I realize you scored one offensive TD against a team that allowed 800 yards to Mississippi St, but maybe beat Bama and you'd have a clear path.

    Almost as impressive as get your shit pushed in by Bama if you look at it, I guess :idk:

    This is such a stupid ass conversation. Be undefeated and people would respect you. I've never seen anybody play the best loss card against an undefeated P5 team.

    Them again, none of this shocks me when you look at the source.

    What you are doing is literally me complaining ND should be champs after the loss. A&M should If ATM would have blown out LSU last night you'd be crowing about a quality win over a 3-4 team. You're so transparent.

    Please, keep making my case.

    So your best case for a spot over an undefeated ND with a win over the #1 team is a blowout loss to the #2 team and a top 10 win?

    This is just so stupid. I'm done.

    Dump, it’s already been laid out for you. Focus on Ohio State, Cincy, and BYU. The only scenarios that allow A&M into the Playoff require getting above those teams.

    A&M’s QB went 11/34 last night against a shitty opponent.

    Give one of the undefeated’s a chance, we already know A&M will get crushed by Bama.
