    How do you think it settles out? I've got:

    Ohio State
    LSU
    Clemson
    OU/ Baylor or Oregon/Utah

    With Ohio State winning the national championship.

    I've got all my money on SW Tennessee Chatanooga's Teachers College to win it all.

    tOSU
    LSU
    Clemson
    ou (best chance of winning out with a conference championship). That would give them a conference championship on their resume where Bama can't). Baylor won't win out

    Those are the 2 best teams I've seen this year. #3 and 4 are not in the same league. I think OSU takes it in a shootout.

    Baylor. No one has been tested like the Bears. A triple OT win, a double OT win, a 3rd win on a walk off FG. There is something in the water in Waco, and I’m drinking all of it.

    LOL OU has no business being anywhere near the playoffs, we can't even look stout in the Big 12.

    I will be a full believer if they beat ou next weekend. I think Baylor is a quality team. I like their wins against ISU, OSU, TCU and KSU. It has been unbelievably impressive how they dug themselves out of the scandalous hole they were in. Kudos, man.

    Championship game Ohio State vs LSU. Winner LSU. No one else matters this year, IMO.

    So what happens if Georgia and LSU play in the SEC CCG and Georgia beats LSU. Then you have Georgia, LSU and Bama all at one loss. Could get pretty crazy in the near future. I think the 4 team system is still not the right system and can’t wait till maybe one day they incorporate an 8 team playoff.

    Another thing I think that should be in place now is if you don’t win your conference then you shouldn’t deserve a shot at the national title.

    So they are putting roofies in the water now? That's stepping up their game. ;)

    IMO there should be a provision in the criteria for making the playoff that you have to win your conference to get in. That eliminates having multiple teams from the same conference getting in. Problem solved.

    Feels like Clemson is a lock. LSU is pretty much a lock, and Ohio State is really in a good spot. That #4 seed will cause some hurt feelings for sure. Could be Baylor or Georgia or Bama or Utah or Oregon or maybe even Oklahoma. Only way it is clean is if Baylor wins out.

    I don't see how the committee can't not put in a one-loss Pac 12 champ, or a one-loss 0U over Alabama. That would be BS, but they're ridiculously biased towards the $EC.

    If Oregon wins the PAC getting beat by Auburn might make things dicey. Since Auburn will have likely been beaten by LSU, Florida, Georgia, and Bama by then. Oregon needs Auburn to beat Bama or Georgia.

    Maybe Baylor wins out and makes it easy, but I doubt it. I think the powers that be want college football to be less regional. So I am betting they do whatever gymnastics is required to put in a West coast team. Who few will really believe is a top 4 team, and less will after they play LSU or OSU.

    Assuming Baylor doesn't win out, this would seem pretty straight forward.
    1) Ohio St
    2) Clemson
    3) LSU
    4) Georgia
    And I realize I just said I think the committee would prefer a west coast team. I also don't think Georgia beats LSU, which would change things a lot.

    Now if this happened and Baylor won out, I have no idea how they would decide between LSU and Georgia. As Baylor has to get in if undefeated.

    100% agree. Was replying to a what if,
    I agree. Georgia is top 3 or 4 in the conference, not the nation.

    Hope it is
    Ohio State
    Clemson
    LSU
    Oregon

    That would keep Alabama and OU out of the playoffs and that would be a winner.
    Ohio State and LSU in the championship game and I would much rather LSU win but I think it will be Ohio State because of their defense.

    Can someone explain why UGA would be Top 5 when they lost at home to South Carolina?! My Top 4 would be:
    LSU
    tOSU
    Clemson
    Oregon

    Then
    Bama
    Minny
    Baylor
    OU
    Utah
    UGA

    I can't see them putting Bama in over either 0U or Oregon if they finish with one loss and win their conference. Bama played a very weak schedule and didn't even win the division of their conference. This is why there needs to be a provision put in that you have to win your conference to get in the playoff.

    Hence why I said "stumbles in the side door drunk".

    They probably shouldn't get in but something fvcking stupid will happen and Bama will find a way to un-sh!t the bed.
