Playoff Chaos?

Recommended Posts

On Cowherd this morning, in the second hour after "Kristine With the New" Joel Klatt summed it up first ten minutes of that half hour segment.

The committee is a joke and makes excuses for what it wants, which isn't "which teams are deserving?"  -- making this kind of selection not what the college football fans deserve.

He pointed out that the two conferences that have three teams in, play only 8 conference games, the other three Power 5 conferences play 9.

Bama played a shit schedule non-conference while -- as pointed out in posts above -- USC played Texas and Notre Dame. I think Klatt mentioned that all USC's games were against Power 5 teams. Or 11 of them were.

The SEC keeps playing non-Power 5 cupcakes the week before Thanksgiving, to insure they don't wreck their record or standings. That conference is being rewarded for playing 4 non-Conf nothing-burger games, with only a few of the teams (have to say A&M is one) actually play anybody.

Klatt added a breakdown of the changing "criteria" for several of the years. They get who they want and make excuses not explanations.

Klatt proposed eliminating divisions. Each conf puts their top 2 teams in a conf title game and winner advances. Of the five P5 conferences, then, one gets left out based on (whatever), but no one earns their way in unless they deserve to be in by playing it on the field.

I think the 14-team conferences can eliminate divisions but still create a year-to-year rotation, and should play TEN conference games, playing each of those 10 home-and-home. Then alter the schedule for the next two years. And so on. And stop playing 7 home games. Which, I believe, aggie does.

    • I am extremely happy I was wrong about our chances in this game. We are better than last year. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will stay focused and find some consistency. For the first time in many years I’ve regained some hope.  Im not superstitious per se but I do try to duplicate my routine when things are going well so...TCU is overrated and this win proved nothing. 
    • They showed me I was wrong. Never been so glad to be wrong. 
    • That play was a head scratcher for the exact reasons listed.  I do think the offensive execution is better. I almost died when Sam almost left the pocket then reset and found LJH for the TD. That is definitely progress. 
    • Echeese....you are wrong.I DO agree with your comments.....n fact, I really agree....Great writeup. FWIW...I never said the play calling was perfect. What I was tryin g to say was that I did not think it was as terrible as was being discussed given how we moved the ball and how much we left on the table.
    • Agree with Primal on the MVPs. Stearns is a pure stud, nuff said. The Shark played big tonight. He's filling in nicely for Roach. The D was solid and was hitting! The O-line did a good job. I saw Vahe pancake a guy yards off the line! On what to do better, Tom needs to learn when to punt. Your D is playing lights out, pin em back. The punt returner should stand at the 10 yard line and NEVER go backwards. Fair catching the ball on the 5 yard line? On kick-off returns, it's OK to start at the 25 yard line when you catch the ball in the end zone. Sam needs work still on when to throw the ball away.
