Nobody cares what you think herb... you and your what if's.


Makes no sense to have Bama above Clemson and Michigan

when you're looking objectively at this point.

Now, if Bama beats LSU, the case becomes stronger. If Bama wins out beating LSU and Auburn, then yes... put them at #1.

Seriously?


Bama has one Top 25 win. Michigan and Clemson have 3.

Clemson has a win over a top 10 Louisville team and, now, a top 10 Auburn team on the road.


Bama just successfully passes the eye test in pretty much

every category. They've not only beaten everybody, they've beaten everybody comfortably. They're basically an NFL practice squad.


if Bama loses and does not win out, they drop from #1,

So what difference does it make?


It just annoys me when media guys don't do their homework

and fail to look at reality.

The reality is that Bama has "looked impressive". The reality is that they also have only played one Top 25 team.

Michigan has beaten 3 Top 25 teams. Clemson also has but 2 of ours were road games.

The order of rank determines "who plays who" in the semi. #1 will play #4 and #2 will play #3.
Statistically, the #1 team has a higher probability of advancing to championship game.
If you noticed last year, even with a loss, Alabama was never considered the #4 seed so to prevent a Clemson / Alabama semi game.

You're exactly right, and I believe they will work it this year to where there won't be any threat that Bama will have to play a team ranked just beneath them in the playoffs bc they want to make sure that Bama is in the top 2 come NCG time. You can bet we won't get a shot at Bama in a playoff games. It will be the winner between Clemson and Michigan playing Bama for the NCG, where they have more experience leading into that game than anybody in college FB. It's a let's pave the easiest path for Bama to win the NCG as they possibly can. That makes for record TV viewers!!!

Im all for being number 1 too. However why do you think bama shouldnt be number 1? Clemson and bama are the only two teams that have only lost 1 game each since 2014 and they beat us head to head in the natty. They rightfully deserve the number one spot until they lose a game.

we lost but were probably the better team. This year, they are on another level and it would take an epic effort to beat them.


We have the best resume, but I still think Bama is the best


Posted: Oct 30, 2016 12:22 PM
 

team right now. And the fact they are returning champions, I agree they should be #1.

I thought we were the better team last year after our game with them. Things just didn't go our way.

Well sense the best team doesn't always win that one big game that's suppose to prove who is the best team bc the second best team got lucky as did Bama in last years NCG. Just maybe we will get lucky and win it all if we get the chance to play in that last game that tells who is the best team in the country on occasion!!!

My take: makes NO difference!

But as a fan riding back from Tally, here's what I'm 'looking ahead' to (Oh yeah! I'm a fan, NOT a coach or player, so I can IF I choose to!):

I'm PULLING for a bama loss, and our Tigers to win out SO WE can play in Atlanta for the CFP semi!

Simple as that!

So you're just a fan and not a Clemson alum. Just checking to make sure that you're a better fan or just a plain O diehard loyal to the core Clemson fan ;) From what is said on here at times, there is a resounding difference you know, or as they say!!!;)

Is he on the playoff committee now?


Posted: Oct 31, 2016 8:37 AM
 

Cause unless he is, his opinion really doesn't matter.
