    What makes you think scheduling weak will benefit them in this scenario? If anything I think it'll give them more incentive to schedule tougher OOC in order to provide another data point to differentiate themselves to the committee.

    Because they are auto in with a 12-0 record. Why would a UCF schedule a road game at Alabama when they could play at home against UMASS?

    because it’s the highest ranked g5 in the committee rankings so things like that are taken into account

    How often are multiple G5 teams in contention for the playoffs currently?

    I think that's enough Cincinnati. If you can't smack the shit out of any of these bad AAC teams you just don't deserve the CFP, ND win or not.

    Ah nice. Tried to talk my wife into going to the Southern Utah game when we were up there last month. She wasn't having it since Arizona was playing at the same time.

    Should be a strong Montana crowd.

    This is the answer you give when you know in the back of your mind that you’re gonna use being left out of the playoff as the reason why you took a Power Five job.

    The rumor is that they are going to offer $5 million a year to keep him. That’s a lot of money and a lot of job security.

    All Allen does is clap and scream. He's a HS-caliber coach. Again, huge FCA counselor vibes with him

    New AD needs Woodson to work out or the men's sports portfolio is fucked. Baseball has me very worried too. Rough time to be an IU fan

    If Fickell builds long term success at UC, it’s going to affect Stoops at Kentucky. There are a lot of Ohio kids on the Kentucky roster.

    You'd for sure know better that Ohio kids would rather play in the Big12 rather than SEC, but Kentucky only signing on average 4 Ohio kids per class. So wouldn't kill them, esp with how well they have done in the portal.

    Forgive me for not paying much attention Saturday, but Clemson QBs went 27/57 against UConn? And only 3.1 yards per carry?

    The principles and virtues Dabo lives by and has applied at Clemson are the foundation of what’s happened here over his tenure.

    Those foundational principles led the ascension of Clemson when initially most IPTAY members, students, and fans alike were more than skeptical to put it mildly.

    People rarely mention on this forum how successful Dabo’s players are in the classroom with graduation rates and GPA’s that rival Stanford, Duke, and Notre Dame.

    That’s special. It’s so special.

    He’s not going to change those principles. They’re the stone instead of sand foundation.

    The game’s changed; standards lowered, transfers available as “at will free agency”, and ALOT of money inserted via NIL.

    All of this in the last couple of years.

    Dabo now has the challenge of finding a way to uphold those principles that have developed and graduated future leaders, fathers, coaches, etc. while maintaining the level of performance on the field.

    Appropriate criticism of the results on the field is just that, appropriate. In my personal view, however, the angry, sarcastic, tantrum-like vitriol displayed by many is not.

    I encourage us to take a deep breathe, get behind the team, and let him work the problem. He’s earned it more than any coach in the country.
