Talk about pizzing off the ESPN pundits, this would be a slap in their ignorant biased faces.


I'm really thinking the same thing.

Wouldn't be the first time that I was wrong, but I've felt like they'll be #1 by the committee all along.

No chance.

Reasons
1. Only winning by 33 points per game
2. Only gaining 545 YPG despite playing the most players in CFB and exceeding 100 players twice
3. Allowing a whopping 247 YPG defensively
4. #1 overall defensive efficiency
5. Undefeated with a common win with Alabama
6. Allowing a massive 47% completion percentage on the year
7. Allowing a dominant 3.0 YPC on the year

All these factors mixed in I think we're doing so well they will be forced to keep us away from being #1

Last season's results have no impact on the current year's rankings. Clemson is 9-0 not 24-0. We will be 3-4 tonight, LSU and OSU deserve to be ahead of us. I see us or bama at 3

We have a stronger SOS than Bama to this point so I say 3.

I don't think that's true anymore after Wofford. But regardless I see us and bama in the 3/4 slot in any which order.

They have 2 wins against a winning opponent one was southern miss the other was A&M.

That may be so however we have 3 wins against teams with winning record (power 5). Sagarin has Bama's SOS slightly ahead of ours after this past week.

That doesn't hold much weight though when you've only beaten 2 FBS teams with winning records and we have 1 of those wins as well with Texas A&M. We're also way better than them statistically on offense and defense. I'd be VERY surprised if Bama is ahead of us in this first ranking.

Well since we're changing it to power 5 like he did they have 1 over a power 5 team and that's a win we also have.

For tonight keep in mind that CU is the only team in top group with 9 wins....others at 8. All due to timing of bye weeks. Will be interesting to see if that may actually be a "This week only" metric that could actually help CU be in 1st or 2nd in rankings. Sounds like a typical response from the committee...

I didn’t think that CFP committee included games against teams like Woolford in our results.

I'd love it but most likely that's not going to happen. I think we will move up from our AP ranking though.

1. LSU ( Best wins overall and look the part. )
2. Ohio State ( Probably playing the best and their schedule doesn't look as bad as we think. )
3. Clemson ( We'll be dinged for the close UNC win but the rest of our wins look good. )
4. Alabama ( They look the part but they've only beat 2 FBS teams with a winning record, we have 4. )

5. PSU
6. UGA

Who cares either way where are tonight? It is meaningless.

AGREED

It's not meaningless if we ned up out of the top 6, I assume your talking about where we stack in the top 6. 4 of the top 6 play each other so they will knock each other off. Only matters where we are on 8Dec.

I can't wait for all the complaining posts tonight saying the committee is buying into the media hate whenever we end up ranked somewhere between 3-5. That's sarcasm btw about not being able to wait to read all the complaints. The committee isn't going to take prior years into account, and our resume this year just isn't as good as LSU and Ohio State. I'm not saying those teams are better than us, but our resume(due to not fault of our own) just doesn't compare.

As a previous poster mentioned.....

“OUR RESUME” is 1 WIN BETTER than any other team!

Wins Matter!!!

Name one time in the history of the CFP rankings where you heard anyone from the committee mention having one team ahead of another due to having won an extra game as a result of bye weeks.


Re: Clemson should be back to #1 in the CFP Poll tonight

Who said anything about a bye week.

FACE VALUE - We clearly have the BEST RECORD IN CFB at this point.

Regardless of how we’re 9-0 and the next best record is 8-0....we’ve still got a win to our credit that NO OTHER TEAM CAN GUARANTEE!

Go ahead and argue that out....I’ll wait.


I see us opening up as a Dale Senior. #3.

That won't happen! We won't be higher than 3rd tonight, and


Posted: Nov 5, 2019 6:30 PM
 

that's fine. My only thought is...some are saying Penn St will be ahead of us! If so, they better #### sure be ahead of Bama also, because there is nothing that separates us and Bama, except that our defense in much better!
