    CFB Playoff bracket growing to 12 teams in 2024. Only 12?

    Only 12?
    D2 has 28 (four superregionals of 7) and my Bisons still got screwed by the NCAA committee.
    Harding was ranked 8 according to their SOS and crazy formula. #7 Davenport lost its last two games by 10 TDs to go 9-2, but the losses were to #1 and #3 in the superregional.
    The 9-2 Bisons should not have let Henderson (coached by Tech alum Scott Maxfield -- 16 seasons with 117-60 record) beat them 15-14 during the season.
    So . . . regardless of the level of competition someone is getting screwed by biases (when using a matrix designed for the college basketball tourney.

    12 teams? Oh, who's gonna be that unlucky (and whiny-azz) 13th team? Every year whoever it is, deserving or not, they will stomp their feet and scream like a kid wanting candy in Walmart.

    "Not fair!"

    The TV peeps are squirming about needing to get rid of the conference championships nobody cares about now.

    Why would a team want to play in a meaningless game that could knock them out of the top 12?

    Right. It’s seems like a conference championship is becoming like a telephone booth to P5 teams.

    USC probably wishes they weren’t playing a conference championship now

    Speaking of playoffs, I went to the Ruston high school semi final game tonight and finally saw a local team that could block, tackle, run the ball, throw the ball, catch the ball, kick and not commit a bunch of stupid penalties. The Bearcats even beat Zachary’s Bama QB recruit. Tech could take some lessons from the younger guys.

    That's easy to say by people sitting on their couch...or even in the stands. Some of you have unreasonable expectations for Tech teams. Block, tackle, catch a ball??? Come on, man!

    Caleb Williams was hobbled by an ankle injury, but still, kudos to Utah, clearly the better team. The Hypesman folks have to keep looking for some other undeserving dude to dump their silly trophy on.

    This is exactly what the TV peeps were/are afraid of. In this situation they get to stick Ohio State in USC's place so they lose the west coast audience, but gain a few more from the BIG. No doubt the TV peeps would rather have those left coast peeps tuning in since they already had the BIG peeps.

    It will interesting to see how it plays out. Two top 5 teams vying for playoff berths blown out in a matter of 6 days. One with 2 losses but who played for their conference championship. The other with just one loss but who didn't play for their conference championship and got blown out at home, albeit to another top 5 team.

    With the USC loss, I think the final 4 is set no matter what happens today:

    Georgia
    Michigan
    TCU
    Ohio St.
    # 5 will be Alabama

    Seeding could change but I think that’s your final 4.

    If you compare Ohio St and Alabama:

    Ohio St - bad loss at home to Michigan
    Best wins - ND, Penn St

    Alabama - close walk-off losses on the road to TN and LSU
    Best wins - TX, Ole Miss, Ms St

    Having watched both play on tv, I think Ohio St is better.

    Even though my brother-in-law and family are all K Staters, (my nephew played for KSU) and they are here for the Natchitoches Christmas Festival, I am rooting for Sonny Dykes. Go Frogs, beat the Mildcats!

    Is it really set though? What if Michigan squeaks by Purdue? And Michigan blew the pants off OSU. If Michigan is, in reality, barely a 4 seed, then what is Ohio State? If Georgia and TCU both win handily, and Michigan eeks it out, then UGA and TCU are 1 and 2 IMO. I love the chaos and am just spitballing crazy scenarios.

    Actually, it was a strained hamstring. Same difference.
