Hate to think its political ... but ...

The Cincy disrespect is a trick trying to get everyone on board with the 12 team playoff ... which would eventually turn into a SEC tournament.

Small fish wont make it into the 12 either.

The world is not a big conspiracy run by the SEC. The SEC just happens to have some of the best football teams and many years, the best team. Unless the regular season is shorter, there will not be a 12 team playoff and even it there is, the rules will not allow multiple teams from the SEC.

A rule like that would be stupid. You mean to tell me that if the final 12 teams include 5 sec teams you’re gonna leave some out even tho they are legit?

12 team playoff, there's no excuse for having more than three from a conference! Supposedly, a big reason for expanding is to create more nationwide interest...you don't do that by having half the teams be from the SEC.

You are correct ValleyBoy. It isn't run by the SEC. It is run by ESPN in an attempt to make more money on one league while trying to keep the rest at arms length.

So you really think 5 - 3 Miss State is worthy of being ranked 17? The only reason is to bolster Bama's SOS to cover for their loss to TA&M and justify their #2 ranking.

the charade of having Cincy in the Top 4 now, only to break their hearts when they somehow get demoted to #5 in the very last ranking before the Playoffs actually begin. Ask Baylor or TCU from 2014 how THAT feels. BOTH of them won big their final week, only to be jumped by Oscar Meyer and his Ohio State Nut Necklaces into that last #4 spot.

I could give a rats a$$ about any other team besides Clemson but Cincy did what they had to do. They went into South Bend and beat a top 10 ND team ending their 28 game home win streak. I don't know what else the committee expects.

It's all about the SEC and B1G10. Anyway they can get 2 from each conference in the CFP, they are going to try. And Oregon, what a joke, lost to 3 - 5 Stanford who lost Sister Mary's Garden Club Church. Then there's O310, who lost to Oregon who lost to Stanford, who lost to ... The committee is doing a little dance after each meeting because Clemson is not there this year to spoil the SEC and B1G10 party.

This first ranking will change for certain. Teams have to play other teams. Cincy keeps winning and they will get in. I don't think OSU gets that pass this year

Cincy is definitely the belle of the ball this year...


Nov 3, 2021, 9:49 AM

but if they make it, and I still think that's a big if, I won't be at all surprised if they get pounded in the first round.

You mean like so many other pretenders have gotten pounded in the first round? Why not at least give them a chance to get pounded? You know, a little pounding is good for a team's soul.

I think leaving them out is the better option...

and put teams in that will make for better more competitive games and viewership.

The disrespect for Cincy comes from close games against 2-6 Indiana, 2-6 Navy, and 1-7 Tulane. I know we all want a group of five team in the playoff, but Cincy has not looked like a top four team. Especially the past two weeks.

They just dont. Their undefeated records and "impressive" stats are literally meaningless. This year when basically everyone is down, they still are not one of the 4 best teams.
