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.

    • Most had Jones at the top. Anderson and Eric Monroe were after him in various orders. 
    • Two good friends probably hoping they can play together, but I haven’t heard of any interest on Texas’ end. Holton played corner. Anderson is a safety all the way.
    • I'll be further east, near the Arkansas border. But I hear we have a good shot for rain Saturday evening. Only supposed to be a half inch though. Maybe more where your pond is at. Where I'll be, they calling for all-day rain with lows in the low 30s which should be fun.
    • SHA In your line of work I'm sure you're in good with the rain gods. Please ask them for rain in Kaufman County. My duck ponds are dry.
    • I don't know that a door closed. I know there are plenty of schools seeking his services. We're losing DeShon Elliott and Anderson might make a nice home there if PJ Locke isn't up to the task. Ole Miss lists Anderson as 6'1, 221 lbs. Thats almost the same as DE with similar skills. He will be a junior and with a great showing, could be a one and done. I don't think it would have much effect on the young guns coming in. There's two safeties in that group – BJ Foster and Caden Sterns. It would be great to be able to redshirt them. Having Anderson around would certainly help make that happen. All that said, I have no idea if this is the out of nowhere guy. Would be cool if it is.
