Who will be the CFP Champion?

CFP Rankings. Was not expecting Florida State to be snubbed! I guess $EC rules...

1. Michigan
2. Washington
3. TEXAS!!!!!
4. Alabama
5. Florida State
6. Georgia

The discerning reader may detect a bias by me.
Michigan and Alabama should be a great game, I will give it to Michigan.
I expect Texas to beat Washington by a good margin.

Even with my bias, I believe Michigan-Texas will be a tossup.

If SEC ruled, Georgia would be in too. Alabama in simply means the best team in the nation got in (regardless of the rankings).

I watched a rare NCAA game yesterday - Texas looked unstoppable against OK St.

It's really silly to try to ID the best teams out of 100s when they only play a handful of games. Sorry - some things are unknowable.

I tend to agree with you. The NBA has a better system. But that’s only practical with basketball. Football is such a production that it’s impractical to have a series of games in each playoff round, so we’re stuck with what we got.

I think it should just be Michigan against Washington.

FSU was undefeated, but their strength of competition was clearly lower than any of the other top teams.

FSU was shafted - they finished undefeated in a P5 conference, they defeated two non-ACC P5 teams, they won their conference, AND they did it using backup QB's. To be told they aren't good enough because they won with a 3rd string backup makes a mockery of the selection process. They should have been third and Texas fourth.

And leave out Alabama? Heresy.

I say let the mascots fight it out.......

Dubs and Bevo probably wouldn't even fight each other, and Michigan doesn't have a mascot, so they'd have to use a real, wild wolverine, who would literally devour Big Al. After that, the wild wolverine would chow down down on Bevo, making him extremely unhappy. I suspect Bevo would concede after giving up a full meal to the ferocious Michigander. Upon seeing what the wolverine did to Bevo, Dubs would likely hightail it away, far away, from partaking in that battle; therefore Michigan will be the Nat'l Champ!

Wanna fight about it?

Michigan and Alabama should be a great game, I will give it to Michigan.

That would be reasonable assumption except for the fact that when Nick Saban has a month to prepare for a game, he is almost unbeatable.

No horses in this race …The undefeated teams should've all been in. Seminoles got jobbed.

AP got it right (for a change):

I vote to put FSU in, instead of Bama, but since they beat UGA, I would vote for just about anyone to take their place.

It does seem unfair that Georgia with 1 loss was left out, they had the best loss by far of the 1 loss teams. Alabama and Texas had losses to lower ranked teams (in the case of Texas much lower).

It's interesting that, if Georgia had beaten Alabama, then FSU would've been in (it would had to have been, regardless of who the 4 best teams actually were):

1. Georgia
2. Michigan
3. Washington
4. Florida State

Alabama and Texas would've been on the outside looking in.

I really hope that Michigan embarrasses Alabama, something like 40-0 and Washington does the same to Texas. Then UGA and FSU have a great game with everything you would hope for from a playoff game.

You know, Florida State got hosed the moment the CFP committee decided to rank Texas above them in the final poll. If you're gonna make that argument and do that, then you HAVE to place Alabama above them as well. Florida State was doomed by Texas.

Basically you can blame Georgia and Texas for Florida State's situation.

Las Vegas is favoring Alabama over Michigan. I wonder if it’s time to bet on Michigan?
