So assuming lsu beats georgia, do you go with utah or big12 winner?

I’m hoping Utah, but I think the big 12 winner is the one who makes it. Paul Finnebaum said it best, “no one wants to watch Utah”

    Is "fraud" the term we use when two teams earn their way to a championship game and one of them loses that game?

    Or this, is this "fraud"?!?

    Fraud is a team who schedules crap out of conference and runs thru crap conference only to get their ass kicked when challenged by a decent team.

    That ohio state team played and beat 4 ranked teams ,3 of them ranked in top 10. try again.

    Anybody remember whether 31-0 is the worst thrashing in playoff history?? There might have been worse, I just can't remember. Was that the year that (pretty much?) all those ranked Big Ten teams lost bowl games?

    Ok, Pac 12 hasn't impressed recently. But Big Ten hasn't been all that impressive of late, either, yeah?!?

    Big Ten...

    • Losing record in the bowls this year
    • Losing record against Power 5 for the season
    • 1-5 record vs Pac 12 in 2019
    • 0-3 in the playoff for the last five years, getting outscored 98-23

    :lol: i am really pushing your buttons huh, you are trying to prove something to me every few months for last few years. Outside of playoffs Bowl games are glorified vacations, wisconsin lost its game because they gave carries to wide receivers instead of heisman candidate runningback, surely that would happen in a serious game. 2 years ago big ten essentially ran the table in bowl games, nobody in the conference gave a ****.

    Tell me about matchups, if best teams in conference play, ohio state would be at least two touchdown favorites over oregon. Wisconsin probably would beat utah easily since they almost beat a team that destroyed utah. Penn st and michigan would be favored against every other team in pac12, maybe even Minnesota. But sure at home pac12 can beat northwestern and nebraska, barely.
