A two-loss LSU team at No. 7?

Tonight, the College Football Playoff committee will release its second poll of the season. Notre Dame got them in the first game of the season, just at the right time.

Alabama and Clemson remained in the first two spots, while Notre Dame moved from No. 4 to No. 3 following LSU's 29-0 loss to the Crimson Tide, and MI moved into the fourth spot. If it was down to a one-loss Ohio State and a one-loss West Virginia, Oklahoma, or Washington State, I think the committee gives the spot to the Buckeyes due to their corruptness.

Undefeated Central Florida continues to get no love from the committee. At what point do losses matter?

The biggest surprise is LSU falling only four spots despite losing 29-0 to Alabama.

Utah State's only crime is that it's a Group of Five school, and if we start putting too many Group of Five schools in the CFP Rankings (there are two, compared to four in both the AP and Coaches Polls) then we might run the risk of giving teams like UCF too much credibility and leverage when it comes to how we rank them. So why do we even need to keep it ranked ahead of other teams who still have real playoff hopes at the moment?

The case has been pending with the anti-graft court for 27 years. She has the right to appeal her conviction to the Supreme Court.


#16 Mississippi State plays #1 Alabama this weekend.

UCF Knights - They will continue to be on the outside looking in just due to their strength of schedule and conference. The top four teams in the final rankings December 2 will play in the national semifinals.

Another scenario where the SEC has two playoff teams: Georgia wins out.

- Washington State. Sure, Ed Orgeron vs. Mike Leach would be fun.

So looking ahead, Texas and West Virginia are the only real obstacles that remain in the way in Oklahoma's 2018 championship journey. The top-four teams in the final rankings December 2 will play in the national semifinals. Now, we finally have that matchup officially set. The Longhorns fell to No. 19 with the loss. As the Playoff has shown us, two-loss teams do not belong in the Playoff discussion. A lot can happen in the next four weeks, but the Tigers are playing some of their best football after scoring 77 points against Louisville on Saturday.

There is no reason to do it. That doesn't work now and won't work in December.
