    Texas finishes 1 spot ahead of WVU even though they beat us head to head.... WVU must be furious!

    Why? They lost more games than Texas. Period.

    So you must be an advocate of ignoring Georgia's snafu yesterday.

    No. just going by the rules of the Bowl game rules, WVU has no reason to be pissed.
    Simple.

    Texas did not rely on a 3-way tie and a prom vote to sneak ahead of a team they lost to badly.....

    The teams I believe that were overrated today were Clemson and Notre Dame for the same reasons UCF was not in the top 6......

    Notre Dame at least beat Michigan.

    Who has Clemson beaten all year???
    Their best win is Aggy.

    Nobody questioned Clemson's qualification. It should have been questioned.

    Why would they be? Texas was already ahead of them in every poll, far ahead in the AP and Coaches, before the Big 12 Championship game. Texas finished #2 in the Big 12, WVU #3. Should Texas be penalized for making the Big 12 championship game? Should ISU be pissed because WVU is ranked ahead of them?

    ISU finished #3, from owning the head to head, and WVU #4.

    Adding the CCG game would really suck if it pushed the loser down the bowl stack. Conference is doing it right not penalizing the team that loses in the CCG game.

    No sympathy for WV. They were in control of their own destiny. In their last two games they had a 17 point lead but lost to a 6/6 OSU team. And in the last game with the Big XII title game at stake, at home against an OK team with a terrible defense they didn't get it done. That alleged Heisman candidate qb of theirs fumbled twice and both were returned td's. Championship worthy teams don't do that. And hey aren't they playing in Orlando? Maybe they can go to Disneyworld in their spare time.

    My point exactly.

    Clemson has not played any really good teams this year.
    Their freshman quarterback has not been tested.
    Their best win was against Aggy - which was also a very narrow one.
    ACC might have been weaker than the Pac XII this year. But. nobody is questioning that because of Clemson being undefeated.
    IMO Clemson in the Big XII this year has 2-3 losses.

    They've played some decent teams. The hard part is that they went undefeated. That is hard no matter what your schedule.

    Any team that schedules Furman and Georgia Southern as OOC games should really be questioned on their SoS.

    Clemson would wax the floor with darn near anybody in this conference save OU because they can score with anyone. Like clob said, their DL would feast with the offensive line play in our conference.

    I really think this year, if the $EC gets loud enough, they could take this diss of Georgia not making it (I don't agree with them that they should have been in) and get this thing expanded to 8 teams. An undefeated ND is always going to get in unless there are 4 P5 undefeated champions. They have the least room for mistake at ND because they lose 1 they are done.

    QQ . . . Am I the only one who thinks OU and Murray are gonna give Bama fits?

    I remember an Aggy QB a couple years back running all over them. Murray is better than that Aggy QB douche bag by a lot.

    Not saying OU wins but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Any team that goes 13-0 in a power 5 conference deserves to be in the playoffs no matter who they played. And it doesn’t matter the strength of schedule because going undefeated is hard to do regardless the conference.

    I think so myself as much as I hate to say it. That’s why Deshaun Watson beat them, they have trouble with running quarterbacks.

    Agree and even though I'm not sold on ND, they went 12-0, thus they belong.

    You don’t seem to understand how conference play works. Hopefully some of these responses were helpful to you.

    I’m sorry, so does that mean Iowa State should be ahead of WVU in the CFP rankings? After all Iowa state finished ahead of WVU in the conference.

    You can be stupid or an ass hole. Don’t be both.

    My bad, I apologize. I thought you were a troll. This year, the Sugar Bowl was going to take the 2nd place teams from The Big 12 and the SEC, as long as said team wasn’t in the play-off. Texas was the clear 2nd place team in the Big 12 with two conference losses. WVU was the fourth place team in conference play, with three losses and a head-to-head loss with the other three loss team. Again, sorry if I came across as mean-spirited.
