I know they haven't dicked Utah yet, I'm just wondering the rationale for dicking them. Too many cupcakes in the PAC, strength of frosting. etc.
They have not beaten a team in the Playoff Ranking top 25. And Bud Wilkerson never coached there.

As I am sure trojan will appreciate, the full genius of Larry Scott will be on display tonight, as the PAWCP have the night to themselves, unencumbered by bothersome fans in attendance or watching at home.

If anything the Committee has shown a lot of of love for Utah, a team with consistent strong performances but no top 25 wins. The Utes are5th, one spot out of the playoffs with Georgia(3top 25 wins) sitting fourth.
Utah wins the Pac12 and LSU beats the ‘ dawgs the Utes are in.

Clemson only can play who Dabo wants them to play.

oh you meant...

NM

Whoever is #2 and presumably playing Clemson at #3 got a helluva road to a trophy.

If the favs win out there is going to be some serious politicking for the #1 spot.

It would seem that way.

What if LSU beats Georgia, Utah is less than impressive in beating Oregon and Oklahoma destroys Baylor?  If each ranking is supposed to be different, does Utah's number 5 and Oklahoma's number 6 then matter?

Gotta beat ClemSIN eventually to win the title.  I am hoping for OSU and ClemSIN in the Fiesta. I think I can get a couple of the tickets they reserve to sell locally.

I think the 4 spot is way more open than RedJimm thinks it is.

Each ranking is not “supposed” to be different. Each week presents more info to sort through but that does not guarantee a different outcome.
Utah, without a top 25 win, is already ahead of Oklahoma who has a win over ranked Baylor.  I don’t think another win over Baylor can push the Sooners past Utah.
Georgia takes at least 4th with a win over LSU.
A loss, in my opinion, puts a Pac12 Champion Utah into 4th place.

"Supposed to be different" means exactly as you defined it.  Meaning that because Utah is ahead of Oklahoma today if both win it doesn't mean they will be tomorrow.  I again think (assuming a Georgia loss) that a less than impressive Utah win over Oregon coupled with an impressive Oklahoma  win over Baylor makes it a very close call.

I hope you are right, but Oklahoma if they beat Baylor will have 3 wins over Top 25 teams to Utah's 1. And in terms of additional data points, Baylor is ranked 6 spots above Oregon.

I don’t dispute your view has merit. But you asked a question and I gave my opinion.

The way I read the Committee it has already put Utah ( 0 top 25 wins) ahead of Oklahoma (2 top 25 wins). I just wonder how another Sooner win over the Bears would make the Committee swap the two.

The 6 slot difference between Baylor and Oregon? If Oklahoma has a statement win and Utah struggles in what promises to be crappy weather?

I haven't been keeping up with College ball, but its time to engage, so whats the rationale for dicking Utah and keeping them out of the big dance?

They lost to Oregon? I mean, if they lose to Oregon. If they win over Oregon it seems like the Committee might have them fast-tracked to take the 4th spot. Assuming LSU takes care of business.

But if Georgia upsets the apple cart? Hmmm. Well, me personally I'd once again have two SEC teams in there. And as I've done in the past I'd base it on who LSU lost to and who Utah lost to. And who Oklahoma lost to. Now if Utah puts a pasting on Oregon I might think differently. But even still LSU has faced 5 Top 25 teams and Utah 2. With LSU going 4-1 and Utah going 2-0.

I just don't see how Utah slides in. Unless they paste Oregon and LSU gets slammed by Georgia. But hey, it's an opinion.

And I think Oregon is going to beat Utah anyways.
