    8-Team Play-off Format.

    So lets apply the above proposal to the 2019 season. The Top-4 were: LSU/Ohio State/Clemson/Oklahoma. Teams 5-8 would have been 11-2 Georgia (who lost to LSU in the SEC Title game and unranked S. Carolina in the reg season). 11-2 Oregon (2 loss Pac-12 Champ with losses to unranked Ariz St and...

    8-Team Play-off Format.

    No, what I saying is this: * This year, I think Georgia and Notre Dame will probably lose another game. So if we were undefeated, my belief is that would put us into the Semi-Finals under the current system. * If we expanded to an 8-team system, then OSU would have to beat a really good team...

    8-Team Play-off Format.

    I'm saying in the 6 years since the current format began, 8 of the 12 Championship game slots have gone to either the #1 or #2 seed. So you could say under the current format, only 4 of 12 times (33%) has the #3 or #4 seeds been relevant (although admittedly they did win the National Title...

    8-Team Play-off Format.

    Not exactly. They are playing ACC opponents. They are not eligible to be in the ACC Championship, so technically I would not say they are "in" the ACC Conference this year. They are only playing ACC opponents.

    8-Team Play-off Format.

    Ok, so lets say you take the Top-8 teams today from the AP Poll and seeded them as ranked. (Well, almost. I kicked out #8 Texas A&M in order to include presumed PAC-12 Champ Oregon). That includes the 5 Major conference winners, Cincinnati as the best of the Group of Five teams, Independent...

    Big-12 Title picture...

    You look at records against each other... * OU would be 0-2 against ISU/KSU so they would be eliminated * Then the 2 teams remaining would look to head-to-head results. * Which would be the winner of the Nov 21st KSU/ISU game.

    8% Chance for CFP

    I think If we win out, we’re in. If we drop a game, we’re in the Cotton Bowl....

    Big-12 Title picture...

    So Baylor and West Virginia (sorry Nolaeer) did in fact join the 2-loss club this weekend as I expected. That leaves OSU and KSU undefeated in conference with ISU a game back. So the critical games remaining are: * Nov 7th Oklahoma State @ Kansas State, and * Nov 21st Iowa State vs Kansas...

    I'll take the other side of Joel Klatt's prediction for $100. What's his e-mail address?

    10/24 - Baylor @ Texas

    You could move Bedlam up to Nov 14th and schedule OSU vs Baylor on Nov 21st. I'd rather do that than play Baylor a potential week before the CCG...

    Big-12 Title picture...

    You've seen more out of TCU than I have... I see OU winning this game. With both OU and TCU already having 2 losses, they need help from OSU/ISU/KSU to lose some games. Since ISU/KSU have the tiebreak over OU and TCU, they are in essence 3 games up on those 2 with only 6 games to play...

    I've got WVU losing 3 of their final 4 games... So I don't see WVU in the title mix this season.

    Big-12 Title picture...

    If you correct for the fact that ISU already has a win over TCU, that puts ISU and OU tied in your scenario at 7-2 with ISU having the tiebreak over OU. So as I said in my original post, really good chance that the game this Saturday could be the first of two meetings with Iowa State this...

    Big-12 Title picture...

    Half the Big-12 already has 2 conference losses and we can expect Baylor and West Virginia to join that group shortly. That leaves Okla State, Iowa State, and Kansas State undefeated in conference with the inside track to the Big-12 Championship Game. Key games: * Oct 24th Oklahoma State vs...

    OSU tried to find a replacement game for Baylor

    And I'm OK with that as long as our CCG opponent doesn't end up with an extra bye week to prepare while we play Baylor and only have one week to prepare for the CCG.

    OSU tried to find a replacement game for Baylor

    The way it is worded makes me think they were looking for a nonconference opponent. My guess is Gundy just wanted to play a game and playing one that didn't count towards conference standings was probably what they were looking for. May have been wanting game repetitions for Sanders and the...

    OSU tried to find a replacement game for Baylor

    A month into the college football season, two Oklahoma State football games have already been postponed due to COVID-19 related issues involving its opponent. The Cowboys' matchup against Baylor, originally scheduled for Saturday, was moved back to Dec. 12 after the Bears temporarily suspended...
