        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.

              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.
