    That doesn't explain why Bama is #2.

    MSU beat 9-3 Michigan, 11-1 Ohio State, and 12-1 Iowa - and lost to 10-2 Northwestern.

    OU beat 9-3 Baylor, 10-2 TCU, and 10-2 Okie State - and lost to 5-7 Texas.

    Bama beat.... uh, 9-3 Wisconsin, 8-3 LSU, 8-4 aggys (check how many of those 8 wins are vs P5 opponents) - and lost to 9-3 Ole Miss.

    ousux had the worst loss, but bama has the worst wins. No way bama should be #2 if "body of work" is what matters.

    And the fact that the lower-ranked team is favored in the clemson-ou game tells us that the rankings still aren't right.
    sweet! Gata didn't lose to Bama?

    Funny how a lot of us predicted it. This is the maximum matchup for drama.

    Makes you wonder how much ESPN influences things.

    Have they ran the clip of Bama woman jumping on OU guy?

    OU's drop was more about getting them and Bama on the opposite sides of the bracket, IMO. ESPN greatly prefers OU vs. Bama to Clemson vs. MSU.

    I'm not disagreeing that TV ratings will like a OU/Bama finale, but there is a risk in hoping for that scenario. They (whomever "they" are) had it within their control to have an OU/Bama matchup in the NYE games.


    Personally it doesn't matter, everyone in this has to beat 2 of the other 3 to win the championship.

    They shouldn't bother asking Jeff Long why the committee manipulates the rankings just to get the seeds they want. He isn't going to tell the truth and just say "we thought this would make for good television, and guarantee the B1G or SEC is in the championship game."

    They're probably just hoping to catch him in a mistake like the chucklehead on the basketball selection committee who said one year recently "it's not our job to project matchups" or some $#@!.

    What a greasy, runny $#@! stain of bowl games. I would rather watch figure skating (or at least a Star Vista best of Dean Martin roast infomercial) than any of the following.

    Camellia Bowl-Ohio vs. Appalachian State
    Cure Bowl(Cure for what? decent television ratings?)-San Jose State vs. Georgia State
    New Mexico Bowl-Arizona vs. New Mexico (how in the hell has the University of New Mexico managed to snag their own customized bowl game?)
    New Orleans Bowl-Arkansas State vs. Louisiana Tech
    Miami Beach Bowl-South Florida vs. Western Kentucky (given the glamour of the match up a better name would be the Overtown Bowl or the Little Haiti Bowl)
    Idaho Potato Bowl(appropriate name since it should be mashed)-Akron vs. Utah State
    GoDaddy.com Bowl-Bowling Green vs. Georgia Southern
    Bahamas Bowl-Middle Tennessee vs. Western Michigan(though I would probably watch three hours of footage of Middle Tennessee fans on R&R in the Bahamas)
    Pinstripe Bowl-Indiana vs. Duke (assuming this is not actually an outdoor basketball game)
    St. Petersburg Bowl-Connecticut vs. Marshall (truly a match up deserving of Tropicana Field)
    Quick Lube Bowl-Central Michigan vs. Minnesota
    Arizona Bowl-Nevada vs. Colorado State

    Well they also didn't want OU to have an advantage over Alabama by playing closer to home.

    I disagree. That's the worst slate of bowel games (sic) I can remember. As much as I love CFB, I'm going to give most of these a good dose of leavin' alone. (Plus, I can't get motivated to invest even a little bit in any of these, making them really impossible to watch.)

    I think it is safe to say now that this august body of self proclaimed college football geniuses have no $#@!ing clue. With a few exceptions what a bunch of $#@!ty bowls and stupid as $#@! determinations as to who were the top ten teams. Jesus, just give a manatee the job.
