The Committee has said the gap between Meatchicken and Georgia is razor thin, so yes the two could.easily switch places. But unless.Georgia beats Alabama, they would not finish ahead of a one loss Big Whatever team. And if they do Alabama becomes the issue for Meatchicken.
This discussion began after Cargo maintained a Notre Dame loss would hurt Michigan.
As you pointed out, more succinctly than me, a Notre Dame loss HELPS Michigan make the playoffs.

It eliminates ND sure. But two or especially three losses by them hurts Michigan. It hurts that 'signature loss'(I just invented that) that they currently sport. Coupled with if they have lackluster wins possibly including barely beating an OSU team with possibly two losses.(OSU ends up with three losses)

Yankguy could see the possible BIG picture. You can't. He understood what was being said and thus his week by week comment.

Say if Georgia beats Alabama in the SEC CG, yet still Bama could very well still be in and in ahead of Michigan. I believe Steve has mentioned this several times that Bama could still be in though not the seeding part.

Now, attend Weedhopper. Say Oklahoma blitzes every opponent they face from now on. So Oklahoma looks very new shiny at the end. Add Texas wins the rest of their games, including beating current Committee darling ISU. Now ND and Texas sport identical 9-3 records. Then reference words ascending and descending, add that info to the mix.

Recap: Okie hot, Texas hot. Notre Dame not, Michigan winning but not shiny.(As YG mentioned) Or, simply think, New hottie. Old busted hottie.(MIB)

So if these events all take place in a perfect storm, as the Evil Emperor said to Luke Sywalker, you shall pay the price for your lack of vision.


Have I mentioned lately that I crack myself up?

All of this presupposes that any of us can think like the collective committee and that there is some sort of rational process which they all follow.

When you start with a flawed premise of asking "humans" to decide who the four "best" teams are...you have already put yourself into a tough predicament.  They probably can't even agree with what that means.

God but I hope OSU doesn't have to play Alabama or ClemSIN. Fortunately, with that O line, they have no chance of beating Meatchicken.

Holy sh!t that was ugly whisk!!

Why did the refs scru you on the trick play??

Y’all are looking at a “competitive” bowl slot.  Poulan doesn’t have the weed-eater bowl anymore in Shreveport, but you may want to get in early on that premium La Quinta.

That game was. Especially since we do not really have one.

La Quintas are great, if like me you travel with your dog. The most dog friendly hotels outside of Motel 6 which just does not care if your dog urinated on the sheets.

I was reminded of McKay's old joke about his team's execution.

What I learned this season:  SEC refs cheat worse than Pac 12 refs.
