  • I don't really give two fucks about Frost, UCF or Nebraska, nor have I been paying much attention to any of it, but anytime I heard it mentioned it was always followed with something along the lines of "Frost and his family are really torn up about the decision, they love it in Orlando, he truly doesn't know what he wants to do, blah, blah, blah" and it just always felt like a very concerted PR effort to hide his true intentions, which seems to have been confirmed now.

    Anybody with a brain knew this guy wasn't going to turn down his alma mater where he won a championship plus a huge pay raise, and it seems he's known for at least a week or so now, and with all this recruiting stuff coming to the surface and how he seemingly already has a staff in place it really does seem like he's a bit of a snake.

          This pisses me off bad. Alabama has beaten, well, nobody of real consequence.

            They didn’t even win their division, let alone conference. They are the definition of an at large team in a march Madness, but they’re a shoe-in for this rigged system.

              I guess they think the travelling bandwagon fanbase they have is important.

              Fuck them.

To me, USC actually has the better resume. Not that they deserve to be there, either.
                  Alabama gets it because they are viewed as the best if even they haven't proven it on the field.

                    • Ohio State has a better resume but also 2 losses. If OSU were matched against Alabama today who would be favored to win? You'd probably have to say that Alabama would win that game.

                      Also, nobody said the rules were that a conference winner is in. They are trying to get the better teams in. Who are the better teams? That is the bottom line.

                        No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

                        • All this garbage does is leverage the opportunity to expand the playoff to 8 teams, which is what college football wants, anyway. Quite honestly, no team fit the #4 spot particularly well. Alabama (being the open hypocrites they are) shouldn’t be there because they’re violating their own “you shouldn’t get in if you didn’t win your conference” mantra. Ohio State was humiliated twice. USC was humiliated by Notre Dame. Wisconsin shit the bed when they had a chance to put a pretty little bow on the whole thing. Seriously, no team deserved to be there. So in light of that, one reasonable (albeit imperfect) approach would be to default to “the best team” argument. If you do that, you’d pick Alabama to beat Ohio State or USC, and by a very wide margin. It’s not perfect, but it is what it is.

                              Think of the ratings for a Clemson/Alabama rematch, huh, huh? That alone probably drove this train.

                                8 teams is the way to go.
