    LSU-Mich and UCF-UF are much more intriguing match ups than a Michigan-Florida rematch again. So I'm hoping money wins out in this situation and they give us the better matchups.

    I don’t think Peach gets saddled with the G5 rep again. UCF gonna be in the desert I think. Not sure how the selections fall after that, though I would guess Michigan is the first team selected by whichever of the Peach/Fiesta has the first pick.

    Should be nice to see Herbert up close. MSU has played a lot of top QBs in bowls over the years. Stafford, Ryan, and of course Hogan are a few others I can think of.

    So is Delaney going to do anything about the clear competitive disadvantage that he has put the conference at in relation to being able to get a team in the CFP? We are stuck with this sorry ass 4 team system for several years yet. And the 9 game schedule plus hugely imbalanced divisions has hurt the conference for 3 years now.

    Doubtul, he said today he has no issue with the way the playoff is set up.

    To be fair, the conference hasn't really put together a team worthy of being up for consideration other than us and Penn State in 2016.

    We should have been in in 2016. OSU should be this year. If the East keeps cannibalizing itself and 12-1 teams keep getting left out something has to be done. Especially if the selection committee keeps moving the goalposts in terms of what is important and what is prioritized during the selection process.

    The East needs to be more consistent. Sparty and Michigan are stuck in the late 90's stylistically and Penn State needs to figure out how to be more consistent.

    We were probably the 3rd best team last year but we lost two including getting waxed by Iowa. Penn State shouldn't have lost by a thousand to Michigan in '16.

    I think if we got beat handily by Purdue this year and that would have showed to be a fluke we would have gotten in. Instead we fucked around with Minnesota, Indiana, and Maryland.

    It’s our own fault. Ohio State should not have lost to Purdue and certainly shouldn’t have lost by 29.

    We’re playing great football now, but there are three unbeaten teams and Oklahoma never embarrassed themselves like we did.

    Lol no. You had 2 losses and got absolutely taken to the woodshed by a well known 3rd place finishing Michigan team and Pitt. AND then you lost your bowl game to a 9-3 USC. You didn't deserve anything.

    We were #5 in the last poll prior to the cfp and we beat the team head to head ranked #3 so it wasn’t that crazy of a statement.

    I agree, we weren’t good enough early on and those games still counted. We had a better argument in 2016 than UGA had this year imo.

    I think it’s interesting that these spreads are all within a TD. That doesn’t mean I’m going to watch Michigan play Florida in a noon game on 12/29, but it makes it slightly more interesting.

    Haha. Leftover reply to a different comment


    Edit: I was going to comment on the Big Ten screws itself out of the playoffs because of the 9 game schedule and the Big Ten east cannibalizing itself. And this year is not an example of that. Michigan got lit up because they didn’t show up and OSU needed not to get blown out by Purdue. Has nothing to do with the 9 game schedule, in my view

    What are your thoughts on the B1G getting rid of divisions and having the top two teams play in the championship game?

    Sounds like Delany is having serious discussions about moving that direction.

    Still going to have a schedule imbalance for teams year over year. 14 team league only playing 9 teams the rotation will never balance out really. Just get 2 more teams and align the conference properly so the West doesn't suck so bad.

    What is the tiebreaker for the 2nd spot if it's two or more teams with identical conference records that didn't play each other? Record vs. common opponents? Overall record? Ranking in CFP?

    I think it's better than the current setup but not a perfect solution.

    2017: Ohio State (8-1) vs. Wisconsin (9-0)
    2018: Ohio State (8-1) vs. Michigan (8-1)

    Interesting that there are only 2 years of the 8 since the title game came about that it wouldn't have been able to be broken by head to head.
