      Man, I would NOT want to be on the selection committee this year.

      Let’s ASSUME the following three teams end up undefeated (and assured a spot):

      Ohio State- I don’t see anyone beating them.

      LSU- Whoever wins the Bama/LSU game will win out.  I like LSU.

      Clemson- They’ll win the Sun Belt 2 Conference and go undefeated.

       

      That could very well leave these four options:

      Pac 12 Champs: Utah or Oregon (1 loss)

      Big XII Champs: Oklahoma (1 loss)

      One-loss SEC: Alabama

      One-loss Big10: Penn St

       

      I think Penn St would have its work cut out for them, but how in the hell do you pick between the others?  I know there is still TONS of football left and weird things have happened before, but I’d be praying for a few more losses amongst the top teams if I were on the committee.

      I think the committee would have to pick from the Pac-12 Champ or Oklahoma in that case, but I think one or more of them will stumble, Oklahoma, Oregon or Utah.

      To listen to the mostly East Coast sports announcers, in this order for the last picks, SEC, Big-10, Big-12, anyone else not including an undefeated Clemson.

      if Utah gets a knock for a weaker schedule what about Clemson?

      I say Utah or Oregon. For why, it is inclusive of another conference and geographical footprint.

      Heard Josh Purcell, A national sports writer from North Carolina on my way home from work today. In that very scenario he suggested Utah, or the PAC-12 champion at 12-1 would have the leg up over Oklahoma (based on Oklahoma’s loss to K-State) and the other two schools as a conference champion. Even though Oklahoma would be a conference champion as well, he gave the PAC-12 a leg up based on their quality win versus the other in the PAC-12 team from the championship game. They even specifically asked him about a 1-loss, non-SEC champion Bama team and he still felt the PAC-12 champion would be selected based on Alabama’s week schedule and not being a conference champion.

      Oregon will lose prior to the P12Ship and Utah will be left out. It will be easy to leave P12 out.

        Who does Nike U lose to?

        Their ESPN Matchup predictors are higher than Utah’s in its remaining games.

            Utah has a better chance of losing to UCLA.

              Not according to FPI they don’t.

            How much do you want to wager on that?  They’re going to smoke ASU.

            Oregon is rolling, and I would be quite surprise to see anything other than an 11-1 Ducks team make it to Santa Clara.

      I have no faith in the committee. In that scenario I would bet they take Alabama.
