Well if they really took the best teams, if you are doing "eye test," for those that watch a good amount of CFB, it would be Georgia over OU and OSU. They actually didn't do "eye test" this year.

Ohio state would have gotten their asses handed to them by both Clemson and Bama. We can only hope for an urban Meyer lethal stroke on the sidelines to make these bowl season exciting

Maybe. Probably. I don't agree, but could understand that. But in such a scenario, it would still come down to Oklahoma and tOSU, since nobody believed ND was actually better than both.

Which is why the deserving element needs to be a factor. Georgia absolutely did not deserve to be in, nor did we. I merely want the committee to acknowledge that.

Of course I am against the playoffs altogether, so what do I know.

I believe ND could compete with OSU and OU.

OSU barely beat Maryland and got blown out by Purdue. They are not deserving.

Unless you're talking about any of these teams soiely against Bama and Clemson. Clearly, Georgia is the only one that has proven that they compete with Bama,

Re: 2018-2019 College Bowl Discussion Thread

Bama and Clemson are clearly on a different level, but I still would like to see an 8 team tournament (or even 10 using byes). The eventual result would likely be the same, but I'd enjoy it more getting to the end. I don't care about the "best" team winning necessarily.

Riley is going to regret being a pussy and kicking FGs when they should have gone for the TD.

Ha ha I saw that. They were destroyed in every aspect. 160 passing and 88 rushing? Sure it was only 4 plays

OSU and Georgia should have been in over ND and OK. What was ND's big impressive moment? Squeaking by Michigan -- a team OSU obliterated? And OK and their tinker-toy defense managed a split with Texas as their claim to fame. How impressive.

Only reason ND was chosen was because they were undefeated. I would like to see them in an actual conference and see how they do

If Mizzou wins this OK St.’s QB should be the MVP, he’s been Mizzou’s best player.

Gator Bowl between Texas A & M and NC State has been pretty entertaining so far.

That decision by the Huskies to not just kill the clock at the end of the half backfired big time.

That onside kick was a bad idea.
