It's a down year across college football, not just the SEC. There really aren't any "great" teams this year. A lot more injuries to key positions than normal in the SEC as well. Starkel doesn't get hurt against UCLA and the Aggies are a much different team. Alabama's linebackers all healthy? Huge difference. Deebo Samuel doesn't get hurt and South Carolina is a different team as well. Georgia may not have been as good had their QB stayed healthy.

Been kinda crazy this year.

Third point: Huge difference again this year because the big ten didn't send two teams last year. It didn't come at the detriment of the SEC or any other conference (the big 12 didn't have a chance to get someone in, Penn State was ranked 5th). The committee selected an OSU team that beat a top ten Opponent away(OU), lost to an opponent away by 3 points after 3 consecutive bye weeks (which didn't allow them to play in the big ten title), and beat their rival ranked in the top 10.
The intent of the committee is to pick the 4 best teams, period.

Your comment about “detriment of the SEC or any other conference” suggests that you’re trying to ensure everybody gets a trophy. The conferences don’t matter. If the 4 best teams are in the Big10, they all get in.

Let’s put Ohio State in a 5 game series against Clemson on a neutral field. Does Ohio State win at least 3?
How about against Oklahoma?
Georgia?
Alabama?

The reason I say a 5 game series is to get closer to the average.

IMO they got the 4 best teams correct.

Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson transferring to Michigan.
They can sure use a decent QB up there.

Can anybody tell me what the two teams playing in the Dollar General Bowl have in common?

That game has the Toledo Rockets facing off against the Appalachian State University Mountaineers. I'll be watching that game for sure.

Anyone?

Here is some other trivia I heard on Golic and Wingo the other day. Did you know that harbaugh and rich-rod are the only two meatchicken coaches to start their coaching careers 0-3 against THE Ohio State University? How awesome that harbum has that tied to him forever.

Fred Flintstone (hoke) would have gone 0-3 if Fickle wasn't head coach in 2011.

CP, none of that matters since the suckeyes didn't get into the playoffs.

I guess Appalachian State must have something for teams that wear yellow and blue.
