College Football

so what does everyone think of the final rankings? personally, i'm not so sure ohio state should be in there. i will admit that i'm a penn state fan but i don't know how they rank ohio state at 3, penn state at 5, and michigan at 6. that doesn't make any sense. so penn state jumps michigan (who they lost to) but they don't jump ohio state (who they beat)? i'm fine with them leaving penn state out but how do they jump ahead of michigan? i missed the selection show today so i don't know what they had to say but from what i read online it seemed like they didn't even consider putting penn state ahead of ohio state. all i saw was that there was some discussion about putting penn state ahead of washington. i actually think michigan is the best team in the big ten this year but they blew it. anyway, it should be a good playoff.

anyone watch the big ten championship last night? that comeback was insane. i couldn't believe it.

The only thing harder to understand than the college football selection committee is women.

I fucking hate Pedo State. Ever since that shit came to light, they can lick my fucking taint. Joe Pa was balls deep in that cover up and they can all roast in the deepest pits of hell as far as I'm concerned.

Now... with that said, it's complete fucking bullshit for OSU to get in ahead of them. PSU beat OSU in a head to head match up and while OSU was chilling on their couches this weekend, PSU was beating a top 10 Wisconsin team for their conference championship. I don't give a fuck that PSU lost to Michigan by a ton of points early this season while OSU was bailed out by the refs in a close game against the same team.

Fuck. That. Shit. It's bullshit that OSU is in the playoff while Pedo State sits at home.

Now... with that said, am I really mad that Pedophilia State got bent over like a young boy in a State College locker room? Not even a little bit.

At the end of the day, if that Bama team that showed up this weekend against Florida come to the playoff, they're gonna steamroll everyone else anyway, so who gives a shit?

That escalated quickly... Penn State fan here as well, unfortunately when the last series of ranking was made a week ago and they Ranked Ohio State second and Washington four I don't think there was any turning back. Tough to drop a 2nd ranked team that far if they didn't play. Would love to see Penn State in the playoff but Big Ten Champs sure is nice!!

My exact sentiments. I'm a Bama native currently living in Seattle though. Super excited about that match-up.

OSU fan here, so obvious I have a bit of a bias.

When it comes down to it, yes Penn State had an impressive year. Going from 2-2 to 11-2 and winning a B10 championship is quite the cinderella year in anybody's book, so I do not want to discredit them whatsoever. That being said, their resume stack up to OSU's this year. Ohio State had 4 top-25 wins, 3 of those were top-10 wins. Penn State had two top-10 wins. I cannot remember if Iowa, or Pitt were ranked when they played each other, so my apologies there, but if they weren't, that would mean OSU and Wisky in the B10 championship are their only resume building wins. When it came to the "eye test", which I despise btw, Penn State won on a blocked kick over OSU and made a huge comeback to beat Wisky. Both impressive, but on the flip side, OSU looked beat down Wisky, beat Michigan in a defensive showdown, and man handled OU.

While reading about the selection process, it was mentioned multiple times that the 4 best teams (based on key wins, eye test, and overall strength of schedule) would make it, and conference championships would be used as tiebreakers, not musts for contention. I think this year was the first year that this was ever even tested, and they set a precedent for moving forward. In the coming years now, it will be interesting to see if the committee holds to this precedent. Guess only time will tell.

i completely agree that ohio state has the better resume. at the end of the day i'm fine with ohio state getting in. i'm just happy penn state won the big 10. i hope they crush USC in the rose bowl.

UMD fan here so im baised towards penn state especially after the crap they pulled a few years ago and then cried because diggs didn't shake hands. However I was willing to look past it until they decided to honor joe pa this year. This joke has been beat to death but the comittiee looked the other way just like joe pa and penn state looked the other way. In the end I think the top four teams that got in were right however peen state will be a top dog next year and the big ten is looking stronger than ever. Hopefully the terps can get some recruiting done in the offseason and build a program.

when your a man sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room just for fun

i think the big 10 is gonna the strongest conference for a while. just look at the coaches. jim harbaugh turned that michigan team around very quickly. i had my doubts about james franklin but not so much anymore after this season. and of coarse there's urban meyer. in college football it seems to start around good coaching. i wonder where les miles is going to coach next season.
