Should all the SEC teams be behind OU ND and Texas if those teams are 2-0 after this weekend?

That should be the same response as to how the polls should react after the B1G starts.

They actually lost to ULM a much lesser opponent.

if its Ohio st over Penn st or Penn st over Ohio St, Id rank that over say, Vanderbiltbeing 4-1 having beaten A&M in triple OT and then getting smoked by LSU (or vice versa, just to annoy all yall) and then 3 wins over USC, Mizzou, and Ole Miss. No, I still wouldn't think that team was better than Ohiost/Penn st.



Of the teams that honestly have a shot at being 4-0, none play a lesser team than Penn State. In other words, if a team is sitting at 4-0 they will have played as good a team as Penn State, and have more wins overall.

You don't see a difference in a game or two instead of 4-5 games?

Probably true but within the realm of debate. I don't have a problem with how much eyetest reliance there is in the AP poll. the reality is teams that have had the best recruiting , and have coaches who have shown they can develop said recruits, are deserving of favor in early season comparison. The AP poll has never been a to-this-moment poll, if it was then there is no justification for a preseason poll.

I’m fine with them giving B1G schools the benefit of the doubt. Maybe don’t put OSU at 5th before they play a game but it’s not unfair to assume that they’ll be pretty damn good

I mean...I get what you are saying, but FSU recruited well, and after their National Championship it would have looked as if they were here to stay, yet they lost one player and went totally down the toilet. I just think teams should prove it on the field and not assumed to be good.

A 9-0 Ohio State is getting in over a one-loss team from the other conferences.

Everyone wringing their hands over who will be ranked in the first rankings released needs to take a step back and remember who was #1 in the very first CFP rankings ever released in 2014.

But they are talking about only playing an 8 game schedule. Therein lies the problem for me.

They have 2 fewer games in which to suffer major injuries or be upset/beaten. 2 games is significant.

You are right that it typically works itself out, but more often than not it works itself out when teams get upset or beaten in weeks 11 and 12 when teams are beaten up. The teams with more depth hang tough and teams with less depth suffer.

If they only play 8 games this will not be as big of an issue.

They are playing and will have a 9 game schedule. That is plenty good enough..... Also, it is amazing that Justin Fields lasted this long but he said he would give an arm and leg to play with a team this good. two of their projected 1st round picks (Wyatt davis and Shawn Wade opted out) but when news reached them about BIG playing, they said they would reconsider.

They should.

Ohio State is better than all SEC teams other than LSU.

Followed by #1 vs. #1, #2 vs. #2, etc divisional crossover games, for a total of 9.

I don't think you are understanding. The crossover is to be played on conference championship week.

In other words, they play 8 regular season games then the conference championship game. The week their conference championship is played the other teams will be matched the way you described. Thus, they will play 8 games plus a conference championship game, while the other conferences will play 10 plus a conference championship game.

The Big Ten will follow what Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez called an "8+1" schedule, featuring eight regular-games followed by a ninth cross-divisional game for every team to be played the same weekend as the Big Ten Championship game.

I disagree on FSU, they went into the 2014 playoff undefeated national champions as the 3rd seed and got annihilated by Oregon, their regular season was a concerted effort to lose that was overcome by the general weakness of the ACC. FSU should have been 9-3 that year and in the citrus bowl.
