    I thought red shirting was SOP to get your kid in top tier programs. I looked and FSU has more than a couple of 20 y o freshman.

    If FSU wins is where the real chaos is. Has there been an undefeated Power 5 champ that doesn't make the playoffs?

    I think it would be tough to keep them out, but Texas, Georgia, Bama and OSU would probably all beat them handily.

    Wow I thought their #2QB MIGHT be in protocol.. But still really surprised he isn't playing FSU may be in trouble.. Problem solved.. If FSU loses BOTH Bama and Texas are in. If Michigan were to also lose Oregon or Georgia could sneak in too..

    Yeah, QB3 is playing. But I won’t be surprised if FSU wins anyway. Louisville is just incompetent. So far anyway.

    A mix of Louisville incompetence and FSU stellar defense. Oh, well, guess we’ll find out soon enough what the committee thinks.

    Kirby Smart thinks Georgia should still be in. Pretty sure they’ll find a way to screw Texas. Maybe Ohio State and Georgia both get in?

    Plummer is one of the worst college QBs I've ever seen play. WTF did I just watch?

    Assuming all undefeated power 5 conference winners make it, that's Michigan, Washington, FSU...since Texas beat Bama they should get in IMO.
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    Agree that it should be Michigan, Washington, FSU, Texas. The committee will likely have SEC bias so I wouldn’t be surprised if Bama gets the nod over Texas even after a loss at home. No way Georgia is in there. Their schedule was a joke.

    100%.. They might screw FSU instead of Texas but SEC Homers gotta SEC Homer..

    2023 College Football Thread

    If Bama makes it in over Texas, that will be the biggest bullshit choice in the committee’s history. This whole talk of “best” team and eye test is pathetic. If Georgia and Bama want in there should’ve won the games that mattered. ACC has a winning record against the SEC this year. I’m a firm believer that the playoff is what has completely ruined college football and caused the conference realignment non sense. They should’ve gone back to the pre bcs formula and then taken the top 4 after bowl games, as those traditional bowl game matchups would’ve essentially been a pre playoff. State of college football has me pissed off, but not as much as 3 straight 3 point loss’s to the Fuskies.

    Cheering for Michigan to win it, then vacate the title in 2 years due to cheating.

    Problem with that is they will have still won the actual game on the field and no one will care when the NCAA is dissolved sometime in the future.

    I feel really bad for FSU. Are they a top four team? Not by the eyeball test. But going 13-O and getting snubbed is unreal. The season apparently means nothing.

    Yes, Florida State is without starting QB Jordan Travis, meaning it would have to play with a quarterback who wasn't its opening-week starter in order to win a national title, and of course that couldn't happen. After all, only 2014 Ohio State, 2017 Alabama, 2018 Clemson and 2021 Georgia did that. What are the odds that something that's happened 44% of the time would happen again?

    And sure, FSU's passing game was a mess in the ACC championship game. No argument there. Funny thing though: FSU won its title game by more than Alabama did. In fact, FSU has won its past two games by more than Alabama has. And since Travis got hurt in Week 12 against North Alabama, the Seminoles have thrown for just 8 fewer yards than Michigan has in that same stretch, but there was no debate about Michigan.

    Oh, and this is probably irrelevant in the face of such a poor quarterback performance against Louisville, but there's also the small matter that the QB who started that game, Brock Glenn, wouldn't be the QB starting a playoff game (since Tate Rodemaker would be out of concussion protocol by then).

    The committee cared about one stat when making this decision: FSU's 55 passing yards against Louisville.

    Here are the stats it ignored: Seven sacks, 14 tackles for loss, 10 passes defended, 189 rushing yards against a stacked box, a 10-point win over a top-15 team with a QB making his first career start.

    Let's be real about what happened here: The committee members couldn't leave the SEC out of the playoff. They didn't care that Alabama needed a miracle to avoid a loss to 6-6 Auburn two weeks ago. They didn't care that Georgia's own injuries -- playing with a banged-up Ladd McConkey and Brock Bowers -- likely played a large part in why the Tide won Saturday. They didn't care that the ACC has a winning record, head-to-head, against the SEC this season. They didn't care that Alabama beat 2023 Georgia, not 2021 or 2022 Georgia. They cared that Alabama and the SEC had to have a spot in the playoff by birthright. And as a result, they sent a message that what happened on the field -- the blood, tears and sacrifice that players made all season to win every game on their schedule -- was less important than getting the most compelling TV matchup.

    From ESPN and I agree with it. Bama in the playoff is a complete sham.

    Oregon vs Liberty in the Fiesta Bowl? How did that happen? I mean literally, how was that choice made?

    That’s just a crazy match up. Doubt too many Duck fans will be shelling our money for that match up. Although escaping grey Oregon skies in January is appealing to some. The spread on that game should be interesting.

    Oh, I looked it up. Liberty is the highest ranking “group of five” conference winners and as such are guaranteed a spot in the new years 6 bowl games this year. If this were next year, they’d get a spot in the 12 team playoff.

    Man, what a mismatch, no 8 vs no 23.
