Have fun with this one guys. I have a hunch there's gonna be a lot of discrepancy between the seven of us.

Based on how they've voted so far, my guess is the committee will have Miami 2nd... will they have 2 ACC teams in over an unbeaten Wisconsin? Or will Oklahoma and Wisconsin round out the top 4, with Clemson/Georgia/Auburn being the next 3?

For what it's worth, Wisconsin made a good impression on me today. They dominated a decent opponent who I thought might give them trouble. They won't be in my Top 4, but I'm not as down on them as I was before the day.

Bama/Clemson/OU/Miami in that order.

I think you see Wisky vault up to 5.

A few big questions about this weeks rankings:

1) How far does UGA drop?
2) Does Auburn get the 6th spot?
3) To go with 1 and 2, does a 2 loss Auburn team go ahead of a 1 loss UGa team?
4) Who else is left?

#4 is a key question imo.

There was a lot of talk that if UGA and Bama were undefeated and they played a tight game, do both get into the playoff?

With everything that has happened, can that happen to Miami and Clemson? In that scenario, Clemson would have to win but is Miami definitely out? My guess is yes but Miami has good wins and last night was a dominant performance.

But who else is in the running? OU is in if they win out. If they lose the B12 title game, no one else from that conference is likely getting in.

The PAC 12 appears to be out...but maybe USC, who probably gets into the 7-9area after everything else that happened, is still alive after all?

I mean, think about this. One of Bama/Auburn/UGA is getting in. I no longer believe 2 of them get in although I would concede that Bama could lose the SEC title game.

 

And have a chance.

One of Clemson and Miami is getting in barring either(or both) getting upset before the ACC title game.

Wisky wins out and they are in...but what if they don’t win out? The Big Ten is done after that.

So, who else? I think it’s very possible that a 2 loss team ends up in the playoff.

And wow, can you imagine if any of these teams were to lose before their title games? That really throws shit off.

5) Wisky
6) Auburn
7) UGa
8) USC

I think the cutoff is after Georgia/Auburn in terms of remaining realistically eligible teams... but this is my thinking as well.

I have seen some think that Clemson is 4. I guess their thought is that the loss to Cuse is worse than OU’s loss to ISU.

But, OU is getting some play in the top 2 by some of the National guys. Their offense looks so impressive but it’s so hard to gauge against those garbage defenses.

Either way, Clemson has a strong resume and they get in if they beat Miami, so it doesn’t matter.

I tend to agree. Some chaos could happen if Clemson or Miami lose one of their final games before the ACC title game...same with Wisky..if they lose a game before the Big 10 title game, that could shake things up.

I actually think if Auburn beats Bama that the SEC could end up getting 2.

Wisky/Michigan next week is huge. Could really throw a kink into things.

Also, I fully agree with the argument of OU ahead of Clemson. That was an impressive dismantling of TCU last night. But everyone was watching Miami.

It was a good game by OU...but I think TCU was overrated and Clemson’s overall resume is stronger than OU imo.

Time to move the unbeatens to the top -- including Wisconsin.

It will be very interesting to see if the committee sees it like me or Pedro.

Here's my expert college football post for the year:

I'm not sure how anyone that had Oklahoma ahead of Wisconsin before this weekend could reverse that now.
