Donít look now but.....

Post by Teetime on Sun Dec 31, 2017 5:12 am

The Big 10 is 7-0 in this bowl season, and has played some pretty impressive football

Yet, has no representative in the final four.

All Ohio State needed to do was beat a mediocre Iowa team and they would be in the playoffs. Instead they got trounced by 31.

I believe this will be a catalyst towards an eight team playoff where all power five champions are included along with one mid-major champion and two at-large teams. I heard two proposals for how this could work. The first is to play the first round on campus sites to ensure good attendance. Then you play the semis and championship at neutral sites as they do now.

The second proposal intrigued me more as a fan. Play the first round at two different sites and play double-headers so there are four fan bases instead of just two to fill the stadiums. As a fan those double-headers would be awesome!

Nice going Michigan. At least Illinois wasn't the one to bust the bowl game winning streak. Don't blame the Illini if there is a 4-team playoff for the foreseeable future.

Michigan was terrible in that game.

It was not only the the sole bowl loss by a B10 team it was the only loss by a B10 team to a SEC team this season.

The B1G was 4 wins vs 1 loss against the SEC.

Once again Illinois is the big winner of the bowl season as they get to share in all of the money while incurring none of the expenses! Twisted Evil

I'm really not too upset about Ohio State missing out on the playoffs, it's not easy for a 2 loss team to get in. Once missing out on the playoffs I couldn't think of a team that I'd rather see them play than USC, an old rival from the past.
As far as the committee is concerned, they had Clemson #1 and Alabama #4. How did they do with that one? If Auburn, a two loss team heading into the SEC Championship, had beaten Georgia, it was pretty clear that they intended to put two loss Auburn in the playoff, something they wouldn't do for OSU. The reason for that would be one of two things or both, that they thought Auburn was better than OSU or that they thought that the SEC was a stronger conference than the Big 10 this year. After watching the bowl games it's clear that they were wrong on both counts. The SEC was just top heavy this year. If you look at the number of teams that were above average to good, the Big 10 had more of those teams this year than the SEC. Because of how they had the seedings, it came down to either Alabama or OSU. I can't say that OSU is better than Alabama. It's the Alabama defense that's really strong. I saw NFL talent at every level of their D last night. When Clemson lost to Syracuse the committee gave them a mulligan, stating that Clemson's QB got hurt in that game. They ignored the fact that at the time he got hurt in the 2nd quarter, Syracuse was outplaying and beating Clemson up to that point. The committee made a big point about all those quality wins. Did you notice that most of those teams that Clemson beat that represented quality wins got whipped in their bowl games? Their schedule wasn't as impressive as it was made out to be and Clemson was overrated. I think success from previous years and regional biases all play in to the decision process too. ESPN has a contract with the SEC and they are going to push the SEC for all they are worth. I think Alabama having all those injuries on their D gummed up the works. If they stay healthy I think they win the SEC, which might have opened the door for the Big 10 champ. Not having to play in the SEC championship worked out well for them and allowed them to get healed up for the Semifinal game too.

Good one ging. Laughing The two teams don't play each other again until 2020. Iowa should hope that The Bucks will have forgotten about it by then. I have a feeling that they won't.
