I agree. If the committee REALLY wants the best 4 teams in.....it's Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia and Alabama.

I have no desire to see OSU get ass fucked by Clemson again.

To me.....they need to decide between Bama and UCF. Bama gives Clemson a better opponent but UCF makes the more intriguing game.

If ever there was a year for a team like UCF to get it, it's this year.


I'd give them my vote even though I don't think they'd beat either OSU or Bama.

Oh, I think they'd get blown the fuck out......but it would be fun to see someone else get in.

Hearing Outback vs South Carolina. Meh. Holiday va Stanford would be a better bowl in my mind save for it not being on NYD.

Bama looked like shit most of the year. They just got trounced last week by Auburn and played D2 Mercer the week before.

Something about playing on New Year’s Day is more special to me. I know it doesn’t mean what it did even 10 years ago since they throw some garbage teams in the Gator Bowl for instance every year now but I guess it’s just the sentimental value in it.

Edit: apparently the Gator Bowl is now the TaxSlayer Bowl And isn’t even played on New Year’s Day anymore. I can’t keep up.

So we are playing Washington state in the holiday bowl. So not only do we not get to play in Florida where it would be a better attended game, and not only do we not get to play an SEC school, and not only do we not get to play on New Yearís Day, but we get to play a team that throws 65 times a game and is probablygoing to shred our mediocre pass defense. Meanwhile Michigan gets to play a bum ass South Carolina team in Florida despite having a worse record than us and losing head to head.

Fuck Jim delaney.

Holiday Bowl apparently picked before Outback dis and picked MSU first. Feels like a slight, but isn't.

I'm fine with the matchup. Get another 9-3 team ranked in a similar spot. Would have been better to be playing among the group of New Year's Day bowls, but oh well.
