We Could End Up Playing Louisville For The Natty

[1]
Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:04 AM
 

I could see the playing out:


#1 Alabama vs #4 Louisville

I absolutely think Louisville can beat Bama

#2 Clemson vs #3 Ohio State

We are very capable of beating TOS again


Clemson vs Louisville in Tampa



This would be a whale of a game and a statement for the ACC

Louisville will not make the playoffs with 2 losses. Go Cougs!

I Hope Houston Beats Louisville but I don't think so

But that's just my opinion

I think the only way Houston loses that game at home is if

all the coaching vacancies start to distract Herman's coaches and players. Otherwise they will beat the Cards.

Just wondering why so much confidence? Houston is a mirror of Louisville with less talent. I think Houston is a very good team and capable of winning, but if Jackson is healthy I wouldn't expect them to win.

You're talking about Houston right, the team that beat


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:40 AM
 

Louisville at Louisville last year? The team that beat FSU by 14 in their bowl game last year? The team that beat Oklahoma at Oklahoma this year? To say Houston has less talent than Louisville isn't exactly true.

I would be absolutely shocked if Houston stayed within 14.*****

Why? All I can go off of is what's happened so far


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 9:35 AM
 

Houston has had one big game, on the road and they won comfortably.

Louisville has had two big games, one at home which they dominated and one on the road where they got 5 turnovers and still lost.

Last year Houston beat Louisville at Louisville.

What makes you think Louisville will run away with this game at Houston?

There's actually a pretty good chance


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:11 AM
 

No reason UL can't beat Houston. Both teams are really good and it will be a hard fought game. I think UL would walk right over a slow team like Alabama, who is overrated on defense this year. I definitely don't want to see Lamar again this year though unless our offense is finally clicking on all cylinders.

First, I expect Houston will win that game

Second, you're counting on there not being a Pac12 representative and Washington is looking really good at the moment.

Third, you're counting on two teams from the ACC getting in, as opposed to 2 B1G teams getting in. If the OSU/Michigan game is a game between 2 undefeated teams and goes down to the wire they could very well both make it.

I think Oregon has washingtons number as usual; Louisville with a loss would get in well before a one loss Michigan esp if they handle Houston decisively.


Washington will beat Oregon this year.

You're forgetting that Michigan football is a much better brand than Louisville football. The 4th team could very well come down to TV ratings and $$$$$$$$$$.

so yo don't think "there's a chance" louisville beats houston?.. well, then i hope we don't have to face houston. but,... i really don't wanta face louisville again.. i DO believe we are the better team. take away 2 of those 5 TO's and that game's not close, .. i don't think, anyway. but, with all that said.. it's TOUGH to beat a team four times in a row.. esp. a team that's very capable of playing with you.


Re: I don't think there's a chance of that happening

No way Houston beats Louisville

If The Louisville Team Played Us Shows Up UH Loses


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:19 AM
 

Houston will not have the atmosphere of the Valley and I don't think Houston has the depth that Louisville or Clemson has. Sure, their first string is tough as any team in the nation, but what shape will they be in on Nov 17th after the wear and tear of a season?

Houston won't need the atmosphere we had in DV


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:26 AM
 

they will just need to do a better job protecting the football than we did. Marshall and Clemson gave a blueprint for stopping the Loserville offense. Marshall just didn't have enough talent to stick with them 4 quarters and move the ball well offensively. Houston has more than enough talent to do that.

Sounds like a few people are scared of playing L'ville again. We beat them once, we can do it again. No way we turn the ball over 5 times, it would be a larger margin of victory for us the second time around.


Re: We Could End Up Playing Louisville For The Natty


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:22 AM
 

I can't believe anyone would leave Washington out of the playoff. They destroyed a good Stanford team in every facet of the game. If they are undefeated, and I think they will be, then the committee would have to select a PAC-12 team.

I see:
CLEMSON
ALABAMA
WASHINGTON
winner of UM/OSU

I don't see anyone from the Big-12 making it.


You must have missed above where Lostlocal declared

Oregon will have Washington's number again

Even if Clemson and Louisville makes the top 4 the committee will rank them so that we play in the semifinals, they will never put us on both sides of the bracket. No way.

2019 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

I hope they wouldn't do that. It would be BS to make us


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:26 AM
 

rematch in the semifinal.


Clemson vs Louisville in the Natty would be Ratings Gold


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:31 AM
 

Everyone is talking about how epic that game was...I think is would sell





Also, I don't the Washington runs the table and the Pac 12 is weaker than well-water. Also, the Big 12 is in even worse shape.

It has a chance, but a lot of other things needs to happen to help the Cards

It might be ratings gold but the conferences would not let that happen. Committee members from the non-ACC conferences would have an "unspoken" agreement not to let that happen. Trust me I know how they work.

Louisville gets in over the loser of Michigan Ohio state , they've simply looked better. That being said, they must beat Houston.

Louisville has looked better than who? Ohio State?


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:45 AM
 

I don't think there's a team in the country that has looked as good as Ohio State, much less looked better.

Who has Ohio State beaten? Honestly haven't seen them play, but I find myself asking this question every year because they play nobody

2019 student level member


Well they won by 21 points at Oklahoma, are they a nobody?


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:54 AM
 

If they get to the Michigan game undefeated they will have won at Wisconsin. Do we have 2 road games that tough? As of right now I don't think wins at Auburn and at FSU are as tough as Oklahoma and Wisconsin.

Didn't get in last year with 1 loss because of their sorry schedule

Re: Clemson vs Louisville in the Natty would be Ratings Gold


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 9:02 AM
 

I don't think so. I think if Michigan or Ohio State has 1 loss they would be slightly ahead of Louisville just because of branding. OSU and Michigan have 10 times as many fans as Louisville.


Depends who else is there, if Bama and OSU go undefeated


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:29 AM
 

they will be 1 and 2.

in other words .... They will not allow CU or Loseville to play the elephants in the semi!

1 Alabama vs OSU or Mich

2 CU vs Loserville or WU


not sure Bama wins out!

2019 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

I have a hard time seeing Ohio State as #3. They are

[1]
Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:25 AM
 

probably either going to get knocked out of the playoff entirely or they are going to win out and be the #1 or #2 seed. At OU, at Wisconsin, at Michigan St, vs Michigan is a really nice schedule, especially if they continue to murder everyone. That's stronger than Bama's schedule of USC (neutral site), Ole Miss, at Tenn, vs A&M, and it's stronger than ours too.


Yep, with that schedule down the stretch, they will be #1 if


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 9:04 AM
 

they win out.

I doubt it would happen.


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:53 AM
 

The committee members have specifically said that they give priority to conference champions.

I truly believe that champions of the Power 5 conferences deserve to be in the playoffs more than any other teams. If for any reason two of the Power 5 champions don't deserve to go, champions among the Group of 5 should be considered next.

Personally, I think it'd be very very very rare that we'll ever find two teams from the same conference go into the playoffs, even if there are champions with 2 losses.

Media just like to sell stories readers like to read. And now people and Louisville fans just want to hear that they still have a chance. Well, they still do, but it's a long long long long shot.


Playing Louisville For The Natty--Only with 8 Teams


Posted: Oct 4, 2016 8:55 AM
 

I cannot for the life of me understand why the powers that be REFUSE to be logical and only put FOUR teams in the playoffs?! Simply idiotic when there are 68 teams in the NCAA basketball tournament and 64 teams in the NCAA baseball tournament. It would take TWO more bowls agreeing to it, and ONE more week. The FCS may still include 16 teams in their playoffs, and have done it that way for many years. The only reasonable explanation is that the guys making such decisions are jocks for the most part and not all that bright!


Re: We Could End Up Playing Louisville For The Natty

Patrino might be leaving Louisville by then. I am hearing his name bantered around for
one of the likely head coaching vacancies... LSU, Texas, USC, Oregon, Auburn

I think he stays put.
