    Re: What College Games Are You Watching Today?

    Here's one for the 'Power5' bias files...

    Memphis Senior WR Anthony Miller is the ONLY FBS receiver who ranks in the top5 in catches/game, yards/game, AND receiving TDs. He is NOT a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award.

    I hope we draft this kid to play with AB and JuJu.

    I know this is nothing news but the defenses in the Big 12 are very embarrassing to watch.

    UCF over Memphis 62-55 in 2OTs. My biased opinion, Anthony Miller should win MVP. 14recs, 195 yards, 3TDs. Memphis misses a 51 yard FG to win in regulation. OOH! Damn Kickers! Kidding, congrats to UCF.

    Too bad somebody had to lose. That was fun. My Tigers came up just short, but I cannot complain. 2 awesome offenses are going to score on anyone, and something had to break. Tigers impressed me this season.

    Clemson is completely outclassing Miami 31-0. The disparity in big-game experience is showing. I've tuned out of that game

    Ohio State beating Wisconsin 24-13

    The talking heads keep referring to the "eye test" as the reason Bama gets in over OSU. I guess i can understand that reasoning if keeping it about what happened on the field. Bama over OSU, ok and fine. But by that same "eye test", Auburn should be in over Bama. Not talking about number of losses, that's a different criteria than the "eye test". Just on the "eye test" argument. AU beat Bama AND Georgia, both by double digits in just the last few weeks. The "eye test" SHOULD put AU over Bama, AND head to head SHOULD put AU in over Bama.
    Don't read anything into this by me. I don't care for Bama or Auburn. I don't dislike Bama or Auburn. I just like for things to make logical sense, and if you are not going to have a 'play in' playoff format, and use something called the "eye test" instead, then that "eye test" has to have some foundation in what occurs on the field. Bama may have one of the top 4 teams right now, I just don't understand how we can just assume that. They did NOTHING to deserve a spot in this year's playoff. The committee just decided they did.
    I can 'assume' Bama would beat Wisconsin head to head too, but had Wisconsin won the Big10, they would be in over Bama. Reason, what happened on the field. Bama over AU reason, "eye test". No logical format.

    It was a lose-lose situation, either way you ended up with a team with gaping flaws in it's resume in the top 4. Frankly I think they overrated what Bama did since they looked impressive against vastly inferior competition, but with OSU losing by 15 and 31 against a 5 loss team, made it hard to justify putting them in, even with more impressive victories

    No way do they put OSU in over Bama, my rant is on why Bama over Auburn. If you go by losses, Auburn lost to Clemson(in the playoff as #1 seed), LSU(okay, 1 bad loss), and Georgia(in the champ game, +in the playoff as the #2 seed)
    So Auburn loses to the #1 and #2 seed teams, and have to look at the order in which that happened. Plus, Auburn beat Georgia handily just a few weeks ago, and beat Bama just a couple weeks ago. So, using the "eye test", how does Bama jump over Auburn? Bama didn't beat any team of significance to the conversation.
    Booger said Bama had injuries that contributed to their loss. It's week 12 and every team has injuries. How is that a valid point?

    Simple, don't lose 3 games in a season

    I think you're missing the point of the "eye test". With the "eye test" records don't matter. It's perception only.

    Anyway, there is no rationale to it. The committee was determined Bama got in, so Bama got in. The only way to do it logically and fairly is to do like EVERY OTHER SPORT PLAYOFF IN THE WORLD. If you win your division, conference, bracket, pool, etc...you're in the playoff. If not, good season and better luck next year.

    I think it is more complex than just eye test, it is eye test combined with record and losses. Obviously teams with fewer losses will be judged more favorably

    Right. But if you go back to my original rant/post, you will see that I said " just on the eye test argument". Meaning only discussing the decision based only on the eye test only. So, I can see there are other factors involved, but the talking heads specifically said, Bama got in due to the eye test. Therefore, this rant was only and specifically from the viewpoint of the eye test only. And when you repeatedly say something like 'eye test only', and people continue to say things back like, 'eye test combined with...', you can see how that gets frustrating.
