If defense wins championships how much should the  CFP Committee ding Oklahoma for not having much of one?

Funny you would ask that when you(and others) loudly decried the LSU/Bama defensive battle of a while back.

But now that there is a team from the Big 10 playing stellar defense who is in the mix...
Though I have us in the playoffs, i suspect that fourth loss takes us out of the mix in the Committee's eyes.

Once again, Defense wins Championships. Sometimes. Offenses wins Championships.  Sometimes. Being able to play both wins Championships.  Usually. See as proof the last three playoffs.

Does West Virginia hop over Oklahoma in the Football Four Poll tonight?

Hard to say, but I would have them ahead of the Sooners.
Why? Oklahoma won a rivalry game against a pretty good team. WVU beat a down TCU. While each week gets a fresh set of eyes, they see the old data too. And that old data includes an FCS school on WVU's record. If the Committee had Oklahoma ahead after a close one at TT, why change now?

So you think the Oklahoma victory more impressive than the West Va victory, or at least no real margin of difference. Fair enough.

I think over all, the Committee will consider that Oklahoma still possesses the stronger resume.

Well Massey seems to agree with you on that. As does my old buddy Jeffy.


But then you know me and defense.

Oklahoma has given up 298 points as opposed to West Va's 188 points.


Maybe take into consideration that the Cowboy team isn't really showing they are any better more or less than TCU.


But like OSU and Michigan, Oklahoma and West Va will take care of themselves as they will meet later on. In fact the Mountaineers get to go to Cowboytown next week before they meet the Sooners. So like Yankguy suggests we'll tak it week to week.

I was just wondering about everyone's thoughts about 'this' week and any possible notable changes.

CLEM plays DUKE, and while we will be a big favorite, itís never fun to play a coach smarter than your entire staff.
