I guess root for blowouts of OU, OSU, and UGA. But, like, whatever. Screen Shot 2018-11-27 at 6.23.17 PM.png

Yeah, there have been more zero loss and one-loss P5 teams than two loss teams for about 2-3 weeks now, which is obviously very odd.

What mayhem that would be though: UGA gets blown out (likely), OU gets blown out (unlikely), OSU probably doesn't have to get blown out, they just need to lose, and then who would go?

I almost think Washington would get back into it.  Could Texas even with a loss to Maryland?

I agree it's far-fetched, and I repeat who goes in that scenario?  Unfortunately, I don't think there's any way M goes over OSU, OU or UGA without playing a conference title game and coming off a 23-point loss.

But OSU and OU definitely wouldn't go after losing to meh teams in their title games.  So it'd probably, unfortunately be UGA.

Too bad UCF QB got hurt, because if not, and if they beat Memphis, I would think it should be them.

I enjoyed how ESPN conjured up some fantastic chaos theory where supposedly we had a 33% chance of getting in.  Reality is zero percent, even if everyone loses.

My interest in the rankings is now limited to seeing whether it's the Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl or other bowl.

Oh, yeah, Florida, for the third time in four years.  Meanwhile, Michigan has never played LSU and hasn't played Georgia since the 1960s, but woo, Florida.

(I know that Georgia is pretty much a lock for the Sugar Bowl against Texas because of tie-ins, but I kind of liked the idea of Michigan/LSU in the Fiesta Bowl.)
