Posted: Dec 5, 2019 5:43 PM

Right now? Just seems ridiculous.

They should at least get the scoring margin right when they say we lost.

Posted: Dec 5, 2019 5:46 PM

and other teams' performances made it come true

now they can't undo it


BUT no one wants to play us in the 1st

i agree, but like i said, they can't undo it***

We are the best 12-0, 1 loss team in America.

Posted: Dec 5, 2019 5:47 PM

I don't think anyone would debate that.

Why would we want to be?***

There’s no real advantage to being #1 ...

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 9:25 AM

You have to win two games no matter what and there are no pushovers in the final four.

When we have had the #1 seed who did we face in the first game? Oklahoma and Alabama.

#3 seed is just fine.

It was the Ovarians, or some other alien group trying to

take over. Trump was probably involved too because, well, he is a grouper. And when you get that many Ovarians and Groupers together there is just no telling what will happen. Even to the likes of this.

Re: Remind me why we are not number 1

If last season means nothing . . . then you tell me why we should be #1 ?? With three undefeated teams, why do you think we look best?

Re: Remind me why we are not number 1

ESPN concocted a nationwide disinformation campaign and convinced all the coaches, independent AP voters, and the entire College Football Playoff Selection Committee that Clemson is indeed #3. You really have to admire their ability to pull this one off.

we are not number 1 because Dabo doesn’t really

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 7:34 AM

want to be number 1. His “fake protest” is to make sure Clemson is NOT ranked #1. After his “rant” the committee can’t put Clemson #1 as that would look like they caved in to Dabo.

Why, you ask, would he do that? Simple, he knows that no final team ranked #1 has ever won the CFP Championship! Dabo is smart enough not to fight karma gods!

Missing a win against a quality/ranked team ...

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 8:26 AM

All other boxes are checked. Great thing about the playoffs is that Clemson will have its day and opportunity to rise to the top.

Re: Remind me why we are not number 1

Posted: Dec 5, 2019 8:32 PM

Weak ACC this year. Not our fault but conference is bad and two SEC opponents did not help. We just don’t have any wins over really good teams. However that will change soon enough.

We’ve only won 27 in a row.

Why would we be #1? We dont deserve to be 1. It would be nuts if we were #1. Either way, I am glad we are not.

The only argument for Clemson at #1 is simply the eye test

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 7:57 AM

and, last i checked, most people here hate the eye test and hate anytime the committee mentions it.

Also, you could just as easily argue that Ohio State looks best using the eye test, or possibly even LSU as well.

We still have 3 games left to play... 30-0 has a ring to it.

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 7:58 AM

45-0 will be even better...

to be a consensus preseason No. 1 and then drop in the ranking despite not losing a game.

2020 orange level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpg

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Because Ohio State looks fantastic this year.

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 8:20 AM

I know so many Ohio State fans, and from what i’ve heard they have NFL players running all over the field.

Let’s not be ridiculous

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 9:37 AM

The rankings depend a good bit on resume for this year. OSU and LSU are both undefeated and have multiple wins better than our best win. And the “defending national champion” shouldn’t go into a current year’s ranking. There are 3 clear elite teams this year and Clemson has played the easiest schedule. The #3 ranking is completely fair.

Re: Remind me why we are not number 1

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 9:43 AM

Clemson isn't #1 because LSU has four wins over Top 10 teams and Ohio State has four wins over Top 15 teams. Assuming LSU wins tomorrow, they will have another Top 10 win. If Ohio State wins, they'll have another Top 15 win. After Clemson wins tomorrow, they'll have exactly one win against a Top 25 team. There is your answer.

Stop the Resume Inflation

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 11:56 AM

LSU does not have 4 top 10 wins. They have ONE win against a CURRENT top 10 ranked team. If you're going to use the criteria of where a team was ranked at the time they played, then Clemson has a win against a #12 ranked team. All of you SEC chanters do this crap when comparing schedules... use current ranks for Clemson opponents and then use the higher when they played ranks for SEC teams.

LSU's resume has 3 top 15 wins:

Texas - unranked
Florida - #9
Auburn - #11
Alabama - #12

Ohio State doesn't have 4 top 15 wins either (but they do have 4 top 20 wins):

Cincinnati - #20
Wisconsin - #8
Penn State - #10
Michigan - #14

You are correct that the reason that OSU and LSU are ranked higher than Clemson is due to the resume. Mullens was pretty clear about that when he was interviewed.

I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.

Re: Stop the Resume Inflation

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 12:09 PM

I stand corrected. Still, using the rankings you provide it should be apparent to anyone why Clemson is #3 and it has nothing to do with bias.

Re: Remind me why we are not number 1

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 10:01 AM

Because our schedule is weak and we don't have any marquee wins. LSU and OSU DESERVE to be ahead of us.

We DESERVE to be #3.

Re: Remind me why we are not number 1

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 10:39 AM

Because we now live in a world of fake news that drives all the polls including the selection committee .....thank God the polls want matter at the end and you have to go out and win it on the field......Go Tigers!!!!

Strength of Schedule and Strength of Record

Posted: Dec 6, 2019 10:57 AM

We have no wins over top teams. The other two undefeated teams have multiple top 10 wins.

It's really that simple. I don't know why this is difficult for Clemson fans to understand, as it isn't difficult for anyone else to.
