Jalen Hurts to Oklahoma.  I thought Maryland actually had a shot.

When I saw that Austin Kendall had entered the transfer portal last week as a graduate and Hurts being in Norman Sunday I should have connected the dots.

Vladimir and Estrogen are already in line for tickets to the expanded playoffs.

And here's the part that I've always said was arbitrary and gives the Committee an out on any final decision made.
An out for what?

Quote
"The current selection committee protocol, which is used to determine the top four teams, requires that when "teams are comparable" the committee must consider championships won, strength of schedule, head-to-head competition and comparative outcomes of common opponents. None of that criteria is weighted."
So what?
The decision this year was the fourth spot. Oklahoma was a champion Georgia was not, both teams are power five teams who did not play each other. A no brainer.

Maybe in your limited analytical world it's a no brainer.

As to the first part, you have never shown even a rudimentary ability to think outside the box. And that dumbass response just reinforces that fact.

Do these people (or robots) literally post one of these in every forum?  I rarely go on any of the others anymore.  Hell I rarely come on this one anymore...

The infection is worldwide.

Tosh Lupoi leaving Alabama; Butch Jones back for 2019 season

Nicky is used to losing both players and coaches to multiple departures. But this year the coaching side attrition is epic.

Id be more than glad to think outside of of the box but you can never explain what you want to change or accomplish.
What is the 'out' in your mind that the Committee is secretly angling for?  Their job is to set up a championship game matching the top two teams and they have each the of the five years of the CFB.

Why we need targeting rules.


With youth participation rates continuing to fall, the insurance crisis adds another layer of uncertainty to the future of America's No. 1 sport. Insurance companies, which earn billions of dollars each year by taking on risk, are increasingly reluctant to bet on football and other sports associated with traumatic brain injuries. Some insurance industry executives compare the issue to asbestos, an occupational hazard that has cost insurers at least $100 billion. Traumatic brain injury "is an emerging latent exposure the likes of which the insurance industry has not seen in decades," Joe Cellura, president of North American casualty at Allied World, wrote in a blog post last year for the website Risk & Insurance. Cellura declined to comment for this story.

"Basically, the world has left the marketplace," Alex Fairly, CEO of the Fairly Group, an Amarillo, Texas-based risk management firm whose clients include the NFL and Major League Baseball, told Outside the Lines. "If you're football, hockey or soccer, the insurance business doesn't want you."

That was the beginning of the end for Pete Carroll era at USC.  I think Saban has done a much better job of building a coach in waiting pipeline with all the analysts, etc.  Pretty masterful actually.

He's taking a pretty big hit. We'll have to wait and see who he brings in I suppose.
