The NCAA better start working on a 8-10 playoff for this year or there is going to be 3-4 teams pissed off when the SEC places two teams in playoffs.  ESPN is going to ask for 3 SEC teams...watch.

Frickin' Big 12 still lollygagging around

 

The Big 12 needs to push for their non conference games to happen minus the conferences that are backing out.  There is no way an undefeated team from the Big 12 conference will make it in based on conference games alone.  PAC 10 and all of the mid conferences are in the same boat.  Clemson would need tbe undefeated to make it in too.  SEC might have 2 undefeated teams and 1 loss team make it in if OSU or Clemson are not undefeated by the end of the season.

 

This is ESPN's wet dream.

True. Unless Baylor or Oklahoma State look incredibly well. TCU maybe? Iowa state is improving, but nowhere near the level of those you mentioned

FWIW texags is claiming this year the committee will choose 4 teams from the 5 conference champions. 2 teams from the same conference will not happen. Arin can take his tin foil hat off and relax.

I was really hoping college ball would be back this season.  Mainly because I like it  it secondly because I seriously might not be able to watch the nfl due to all the SJW bullshit that I think is going to go along with it this year. 

So now the signs are that college ball will be pretty similar??   

I fucking hope not

If OSU and Clemson go undefeated, they are in, IMO.  SEC will get two on SOS alone.  

The B12 (Big 9)'s best chance is texas because of their fan base.  The PAC 10's best chance is USC but neither conference will be able to overcome the preseason ranking that the SEC will boast.  The SEC will have 5 teams in the top 10 and 6 in the top 15.

If the season plays out, I guarantee you that there will be one team that wins the playoff and 2-3 teams that also claim the NC.  

8-10 team playoff is a must!

The players in the Pac 12 are already in revolt. They may get a few games in but widespread infection is gonna shut it down. I might be wrong, but if the pros are waffling, how you gonna send in the unpaid college kids?

I have no idea but my son's league are going to play a limited schedule in the spring.  No fall football.  They all retain a year of eligibility.

Larry Scott will make Rob Manfred's botched COVID response look like a Nobel worthy achievement in theoretical physics.

Yeah I’m not saying that I don’t agree that it’s 50/50 at best but there’s still time. I’m choosing to be positive bc this sport that we all love so much is going to change DRASTICALLY if they don’t play. It’s already going to destroy the small schools with the conference only schedules. My .02

I'm hoping as well.  Sadly it was my understanding that the d2 and d3 schools were waiting to take their cue from the d1 schools.  My gut is that the d1 schools don't want to announce it fearing lower than normal enrollment.  I'm hoping I'm wrong.

Yeah the whole thing is just crazy. Not crazy as in this whole thing is blown out of proportion but just sad. Weird times..

I talked to him about it.  It's tough because his scholarships are tied to it.  In D3 you technically don't have athletic scholarships but you get all kinds of other scholarships.  It's right at 50% of his tuition.  All of his social circles are football players.  I did move him off campus this year.  He'll most likely miss rugby which is a bummer.  I think he's come to like it as much as football.  I feel bad that the world went crazy as he's becoming an upper man.  I've let him know we're ok with whatever he does.  He's staying with it for now.

 

To be honest, I'm only in Oregon part time.  I spend most of my time working in Alaska.  It's getting harder to go back to the lower 48.  If it wasn't for my kids and grandkid, I wouldn't go back at all.
