We need to punish BC by at least 30 to avoid falling to 5 in poll.

Win by 30+ and only drop one or two spots in the sportswriters poll.

Sadly, that is the same logic used by many of those who get a vote in the AP poll. I'm looking forward to the CFP poll, which is the only one that matters.

I don’t see any team on the schedule that your Coots can beat by 30.

I don't care where clemson is in the polls.

We need to just ignore the polls

..altogether because they're completely irrelevant.

The only poll that matters is the CFP poll and it hasn't even come out yet.

Do you think that will influence the CFP committee?

If not, then it won't matter. If so, we could be in trouble.

You are thinking in terms of us not playing ranked teams more than likely. But, the committee isn't looking at any team as ranked. B/C basically there is no rank if "they didn't rank them". Then - they look at on the final vote - who won their conference. If that team is undefeated - criteria A. Then B - is among the top 4 of other undefeated P5 teams - they are in.
The PAC 12 cannot produce an undefeated team this season. The SEC, Big 10, Big 12 and ACC can.

In short, just keep winning! Everything else will take care of itself. Subjectivity was supposedly taken out and region loyalty taken out by going by this criteria. Now once multiple teams have losses - yes - the door is open and we should(assuming we are the one with a loss) start worrying. Until then - nah, we don't necessarily need to smoke BC by 30 plus.

P.S. if you SEC folks want it changed you should have changed it sooner or not agree to it in the 1st place. Not Sorry like a Reeses commercial!

They kind of go hand in hand...

but I think its more important as far as optics are concerned that Trevor play well....as in 300+ yds, 4 TDs and 0 Ints. The national media (even last week) judged our game based solely on Trevors 1st quarter and nothing else. People seem to think its all TL and we go as he goes.

EXACTLY my friend! We are being judged by the “eye test” every week!

How we “look” is so important these days!! It’s not just win, it’s how you win.

Judged by who? Those rankings don't matter


Posted: Oct 24, 2019, 3:21 PM
 

How we look is 100% unimportant. ..

The only ranking that matters is the cfp committee rankings. And the only one of those that matters is the last one in December.

The 2014 national champions were ranked #6 in the 1st ever CFP rankings.


Clemson needs to win each game.. that is all.

I don't know how many times this has to be told to you before it stinks in.

I think the AP is irrelevant, in news AND sports.

You mean we need to ban anyone whose pulse falls below 30.
