We all know without this play-off I stumped for for 50 years of Plus One + 1 that clearly it would have been Ohio State # 3 College Football Play-Off Poll vs Washington # 4 College Football Play-Off Poll in the Rose Bowl.
What always set the bar for the Bowl Season prior to this Plus One + 1 ?
Who the Rose Bowl game features. That set the tone for the bowl season prior to + 1 Plus One. If they got one of the top teams they billed their ROSE BOWL as the Grand Daddy of them ALL and potential national championship ramifications. Then, everyone else chose their teams. It was HORRIBLE hogwash. I hated it. I love this instead as the alternative. We have true national champions now in college football. No one argues that the committee got it wrong. No one.
So while you whine and contradict yourselves about the top 4 teams in college football 2016 season what we would have had without the play-offs is the Rose Bowl # 3 Ohio State vs. # 4 upstart Washington. Some polls had Ohio State # 2. The Rose Bowl would have touted Washington as NOT UPSTART which is clearly what they are.
Washington LOST by TWICE THEIR SCORE to 3-loss should have been 4-loss Southern California while only six (6) teams are in bowl games for the lousy STINKING Pac-12. But the Rose Bowl would have touted Ohio State as not # 3 but # 2 and said Washington is # 4 and therefore the Grand Daddy of them ALL Rose bowl has national championship consequence effect. Voters of polls ALWAYS were partial to THEIR CONFERENCES. This led to the coaches being TOLD who they could VOTE for # 1. What kind of a damn poll was that ?
THAT is what we had before the play-offs while you sit there contemplating your friqin’ navel telling ME that the committee GOT IT RIGHT and that you want 8-team play-offs.
It can NOT be both.
There is NO argument that the committee got it wrong and that there is some argument for some ANY OTHER TEAM to be in the play-offs AGAIN this year.
Is ANYONE HOME ?
Great googly-woogly there is no argument that Penn State is better than the teams ahead of them. Michigan either. Or Oklahoma. There is NOT ONE PERSON who can make the case to me that Penn State Michigan or Oklahoma are better than the teams ranked ahead of them and therefore DESERVED the chance to atone for their crappy-assed seasons all 3 of them.
After the Rose Bowl Ohio State vs Washington what then ? Oh the Rose Bowl would have had to choose Penn State ? What are you arguing here ? After the Rose Bowl match-up that that would have left only re-match Clemson # 2 College Football Play-Off Poll vs # 1 Alabama consensus # 1 in EVERY POLL all season long. Or did you expect that that would have given Ohio State the chance to play Alabama ? It’s the ONLY way Ohio State would have played Alabama because Ohio State DAMN SURE are NOT NATIONAL CHAMPIONS 2016-2017 season.
There would have been NO CLOSURE to the season AGAIN this season without the College Football Play-Offs.
Instead we have # 3 Ohio State who did not even win the B1G Championship having to face-off against # 2 Clemson. And # 1 Alabama gets to warm-up with upstart # 4 Washington.
Some guy yesterday on one of our Bulldogs’ blogs said that the committee got it right. He even said thank you Condoleezza Rice for getting it right.
Then HE CALLED for an 8-team play-off.
Oh and then he came in here and whined to me that he did NOT say that.
Sure he did.
All of you contradict yourselves.
It is what YOU DO.
Chris Low wants Alabama vs Michigan. Jesus Christ Chris Low.
Michigan Chris Low you dumbass LOST to Iowa a 4-loss should have been 5-loss team AND LOST to Ohio State who LOST to Penn State.
Michigan is the # 6 team Chris Low. They do NOT get to play Alabama. Mother of Pearl.
Ohio State nearly lost to Wisconsin Northwestern and Michigan State while they did lose to Penn State and yet even they beat Michigan.
Michigan Chris Low ESPN says today should be playing # 1 Alabama ?
There is NO CASE for Michigan playing # 1 Alabama Chris Low. No one wanted to see that shit. What a stupid son of a bitch you are to say that.
That is as nicely and kindly as I can put it delicately to you Chris Low.
The Rose Bowl gets Penn State laugh out loud and Southern California a 3-loss team. Ha ha ha.
And the Big XII who was shut-out of the College Football Play-Offs AGAIN sends Choke-la-homa to play Auburn who even Georgia beat in their bowl game. How fitting indeed from my point of view.
The Big 10 B1G who has 15 teams only sends 10 to bowl games while AGAIN this year The Mighty SEC sends 12 teams to Bowl Games to lead ALL CONFERENCES AGAIN this year to play maybe 13 Bowl Games this season as the undisputed leader in COLLEGE FOOTBALL again this season and looking to extend our 9-2 Bowl Record of last year.
The SEC has won the best bowl game results 4 years in a row Chris Low. And The SEC has won 10 of the previous 13 national championships with only 3 teams each representing 3 different conferences who have won the only 3 NC starting 2003 which were NOT SEC Chris Low.
We are NOT ABOUT to send # 1 Alabama to represent us to play Michigan who LOST to Iowa a 4-loss should have been 5-loss team AND LOST to Ohio State who LOST to Penn State.
You are NOT going to impress me NOW B1G and tell me how great your teams are. They are NOT. And, you and the rest of the known world KNOWS IT TOO. Last year the B1G did not even have a winning bowl record. Yet all year all we heard here in SEC Country is how freaking great the B1G is. No. B1G has won 1 NC starting 2003 thirteen years of FUTILITY. 1 NC in 13 years B1G Big 10.
And the Pac-12 has won ZERO NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS IN FOOTBALL after 1972. The Rose Bowl gets the best B1G team and the best Pac-12 team as the Grand Daddy of them ALL and the rest of the bowl games get the residue to figure-out after all the bullshit of the hype of the Rose Bowl who the real best # 1 team is when it HAS NOT FEATURED a Pac-12 team as national champion in 44 years and WILL NOT AGAIN this year EITHER.
Indeed Condoleezza Rice got it right. And left the Rose Bowl OUT IN THE COLD Penn State laugh out loud vs Southern California a 3-loss team. Ha ha ha.
Every year the B1G Big 10 brags about how great they are with 4 teams in the conference who NEVER have been any good at all in football and NEVER WILL BE.
Big 10 has 4 teams of 3-9 or worse this season for example. Again.
The SEC has NO TEAM like that.
Penn State LOST to 4-loss should have been 5-loss Pitt. And Penn State LOST to Michigan who LOST to Iowa a 4-loss should have been 5-loss team AND LOST to Ohio State.
We do NOT need any 8-team play-off. The best 4 covers the top 4 teams in college football and there is NOT ONE PERSON who thinks that the committee got it wrong. Even RiverbendRundown.wordpress.com says that the committee GOT IT RIGHT. This gives you Big 10 B1G fans your one chance bullshit to beat 2 of the top 4 teams.
Good luck with THAT.
