    For the record ESPNs Strength of Record which has predicted every playoff team thus far and Playoff Predictor have Ohio State in. Now if Oklahoma does make it like we all expect, we can finally just stop listening to ESPN because they are all so full of crap. Like just this morning Heather Dinich was talking about how if Maryland had just completed a pass it wouldn’t be a debate between OU/ OSU but completely leaves out the fact tht OU was literally a wide open receiver missed on a two point conversion away from losing to OkSt the week before Maryland. It’s just such crap.

    I never payed attention to what ESPN says/said because they've always been full of crap.

    In a twist of what Guru said in another thread about Georgia, I'll say if OSU gets in there needs to be an investigation into corruption in College Football.

    Oklahoma should get the 4 seed and the right to get blasted by Bama. If one team should be out it’s Notre Dame, not Oklahoma.

    Does the fact that Oklahoma beat the team that beat them play into the OU vs OSU argument? I feel like that is a big deal. In some way it makes Oklahoma undefeated.

    And for the record a win is a win, there are little dinky things in every game. We can’t get hung up on ifs buts and coconuts. The game is designed to have a winner and a loser in pure form, why mess with that?

    I really hope Notre Dame falls to #4.

    I see no way for OSU to get in. The OU win over a higher ranked opponent avenging their only loss locked OU in.

    Oklahoma is 5 and OSU is 6. UGA lost so it should be really simple. Also, Big 10 has not scored a single point in their last 2 appearance (MSU and OSU). Oklahoma is in.

    ESPN’s Playoff Predictor:
    Alabama - > 99%
    Clemson - > 99%
    Notre Dame - 98%
    Ohio State - 71%
    Oklahoma - 26

    Agreed on a 16 team p/o that ND would be in. I'm one that's not in favor of a 16 team p/o. 8 at the most but really the 4 is o.k. w / me. I think that no matter how many teams are in, there's always going to be that argument over why not this one ...that one, they don't deserve in, etc., etc. . Could go on and on.

    You’re joking right? Literally any discernible stat says OSU should be in. It won’t happen but it’s not like it’s crazy.

    Dan Patrick was talking about an idea proposed by Dan Wetzel of Yahoo sports. Get rid of the conference championship weekend and have this past weekend be round 1 of the playoffs with 8 teams in. Then proceed from there with your final four as it currently is.

    I just really want to see a team capable of scoring points go up against Bama. Oklahoma or Ohio State hopefully is 3 so we get a good national title game.

    Too simple for them, I think they like all the debate, controversy and power.

    I can only imagine the explosion on here if the Buckeyes get in. Hell, that would be worth the price of admission ….
