Looks like we've got some Horned Frogs and Bulldogs in the house (read: SoFi Stadium Shuttle) for the #CFBPlayoff 🏈🏆 final.

Nothing wrong with purple peoples' fingers: just something they do.

Good luck fans & thanks for riding! Request for 🌞 got lost in office mail. Oops. Image

Alright #CFBPlayoff viewers. Lets go through this week's poll. Once again, it was, as it always has been, predictable. The model was off an average of 1 spot per team for the entire Top 25 poll this week. So let's take a look at some resumes shall we? #CFB 🧵
If you took a peak at this projection yesterday, you were prepared for alot of what you saw last night. The resumes are all laid out very similarly to the way the Playoff Committee views them. #ThereIsNoEyeTest
25 #HailState 6-4
SOS: 29, QW: 4, T25W: 2, GC: 3.3

Despite the horrible game control at 3.3, MSU snuck its way into the poll. They modeled at 26 so this isn't all that surprising. They are riding their good SOS, 4 QWs, and 2 T25Ws at this point. No surprise.

Ok, lets talk #CFBPlayoff Poll. Time is limited this morning so lets just run through the Top 15. For those of you who signed up as a patron (thank you) or those who have followed long; you know the drill. There is no eye test. The committee uses a well defined process. 🧵
If you read this on Monday, last night was all old news and you already knew what to expect. If you like the suspense of the four letter network's reveal show be warned. #SpoilerAlert
15 #BYU
SOS: 44, QW: 5, T25W: 0, GC: 4.9

#BYU modeled at 17, so no surprise here. Good SOS, Tied for the most QWs in the poll. Game Control is low, but with a SOS in the Top 50, they'll get a pass. No surprise at 15.

Alabama y Ohio State se jugarán la noche del lunes al martes (si la pandemia lo permite) el título nacional en el Hard Rock Stadium de Miami. El #NationalChampionship Game cierra una temporada NCAA caótica. 🐘⚔️🅾️

#RollTide #GoBuckeyes #CFBPlayoff Image

Hablar de Alabama es hablar del programa rey del CFB. Su 1ª temporada fue en 1892 y desde entonces ha sumado 928 victorias y 374 de sus jugadores han sido drafteados. Es el equipo FBS con más títulos nacionales en su haber (17) y ha jugado 6 de los 7 #CFBPlayoff. 🐘 Image
Comenzó la temporada con alguna duda en ataque y defensa, pero las ha resuelto a base de dominio. 12-0. Recuperó SU trono de la SEC ante una Florida que supo hacerles puntos (🤔) y luego dominaron a Notre Dame en semis jugando al ralentí. Tuvo 3 jugadores en el TOP-5 del Heisman.

We're coming to knock you out with body blows.

Day is still hot from last yrs Referees stealing our Natty shot.

Rightfully so and if the coach doesn't believe we can beat their asses, then players will never.

Dabo doing what he does best. Running his mouth.

BYU improves to 3-0, with a total margin of victory of 148-24. All 3 G5 opponents have had 9+ wins in a majority of the last 5 seasons.
Wondering how BYU would do against a top 10 team? It's not perfect, but this might give a bit of an idea.
Even absent the unusual year, this is the best possible year in the 3-year #CFBPlayoff cycle for BYU to catch fire. Given the rotation of the Semifinals there are 5 potential spots for BYU to get an NY6 bid. In 2022 and 2025 there's just 1.

The Mountain West will not include its normal divisional format this year. Having said that, 29 of the 30 games normally played between division rivals will be played this year. The lone exception is Boise State vs. New Mexico.
The absence of Boise State vs. New Mexico means that:
• 8-0 New Mexico
• 7-0 Boise State
• 7-0 San Diego State

Is technically possible.
People have spent 7 years worrying about 3 SEC teams in the #CFBPlayoff and no one saw 3 MWC teams in the Playoff coming.

In case you were wondering, mood right now:

#GeauxTigers @LSUfootball


Coming into this game, I thought our toughest game was behind us. I really thought that Bama was the best team LSU would face this year.

I was totally wrong about that.

Clemson punched us in the mouth, and they are the only team to do that this year. Clemson was incredible.

Clemson going for their 29th consecutive win, and Ohio State trying to be relevant again. Lots on line here.

What? What'd I say?
I'm just messing around, Ohio! You know I love you!

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

As good a time as any to make my case for getting rid of the #CFBPlayoff:
The BCS and now the BCS playoff came from the idea of being able to crown a true national champion of college football.
That's dumb, because it's impossible. With 130 or so BCS teams, and 12 games + conference champs + playoffs, you just don't have enough data to make an unassailable determination.
But that's fine! For decades, teams played college football for 10 or 11 games, and at the end of a successful season, you got to go to a bowl, which was a cool thing to do over the holiday between semesters.
