Texas A&M gets the annual SEC BRO bump, even though Washington really deserves it.

WMU is ranked WAY too low, even for a MAC team.

Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Michigan State is No. 24 in the first College Football Playoff rankings. MSU could get into a New Year's 6 bowl if its wins 3 of its last 4.

I'm a little surprised Georgia is ranked over Bama. Probably the road win vs ND.

I also think that, for the most part, 3-7 are somewhat interchangeable. Lots of tackle football still to be played, though.

I guess Miami woke up and scheduled Notre Dame next week.
As for Wisconsin, we will have to see if an undefeated Big Ten team gets left out of the playoffs.

Are there any of the idiots on here still that think an undefeated or 12-1 Big Ten team gets left out of the playoffs?

Then guess what, if they beat ND it will be reflected in NEXT WEEK'S POLL.

I enjoyed Harbie's remarks that he supported 16 teams in the playoff. I'm assuming he thinks he could sneak the boyz in then.

Miami's Strength of Schedule is similar to Georgia and OSU, and better than Alabama. They've had some close games, and are hurt a bit by FSU struggling.

Games with VT and ND should clear things up quite a bit (for all of those teams).

hurts me to say it, but the top 3 teams in America are probably Alabama, Georgia and {urgh} Notre Dame. ND has the best loss of all of the one loss teams.

They also have a relatively easy remaining schedule, as compared to Georgia, 'Bama, and Ohio State. I think of Ohio State wins out, they're in. ND wins out, they're likely in, too.

the real question is will a one loss Georgia or Alabama team get in? One of them will have (at least) one loss.

Not according to this, at least.

Bama's SOS will jump up significantly after playing LSU, Auburn and (likely) Georgia.

unless there is a rash of top teams being beaten (which could happen), Miami will be on the outside looking in. Their SOS isn't likely to get much higher. I suppose if they beat Clemson in the ACC Championship game, they'd be undefeated and have at least an argument. Would be difficult keeping an undefeated team from a Power 5 conference out.

Miami has VA Tech this weekend, ND next weekend and then yes, they would have Clemson. If they were undefeated after beating those 3, I think they'd be in. I don't think they'll beat ND, and they will be lucky to beat VT.

Well according to Nate Silver there is a 3% chance of an undefeated Wisconsin missing the playoffs.  Idiots here would call that better than a 1% chance.
They are currently behind 4 teams that could also win out:: Georgia/Bama, Clemson, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame.

Oklahoma's loss to Iowa State looks better now than it did then. Plus, they put a double-digit beat down on Ohio State in Columbus.

They are at 98% in if they win out.  

Interestingly, Silver only gives Notre Dame a 64% chance if they win out.  This would seem to indicate a big boost for conference championship winners.  But his model has never had to account for a Notre Dame factor.  

Also one has to wonder if the Big Ten losing by a total of 69-0 in the last two playoffs would be a factor if they were in a battle for the 4th and final spot.

I would hope that the committee wouldn't weigh past performances on the '17-'18 season, but I know what you mean.

I fucking HATE Notre Dame and the fact that they refuse to join a conference should not benefit them. Every other team has to play the best team from the other conference division while ND sits home doing nothing. Just not fair at all, but then again they've always had special privileges. Fuck them.

I hear you but I am rooting for Notre Dame because I am rooting for chaos.  And fuck Ohio State too, because they got in for sitting at home last year.
