lol @ fsu still being ranked #3. beat two ranked in clemson and louisville. miami is also good. if you don't believe me, watch the upcoming draft. has one of the best OOC schedules in the nation. not our fault okie state's qb got hurt and ND disappointed. still have gators to go but i guess we won't get any 'sec points' for that one.
what is this made up game control stat? where was it when fsu was dominating teams at 40 points a clip last year? seriously, just drop us to 4. we'll play in nola, closer to home anyway. we'll take on #1. anyway, the agenda is pretty clear. a one loss ohio state prob gets ranked over fsu. whatever, #1 in the AP poll and coaches poll.
last week, the committee chair, jeff long, said the margin between oregon and fsu was razor thin. oregon had a bye week and fsu covered vs UM. no change.
and why is georgia #10? do losses not matter? they got beat down by both south carolina and UF. UF ran all over them. auburn in the top 15? lost at home to aTm, lost by 28 to georgia. 28. what in the actual fvck? mizzou is ranked too? no quality wins and a loss to indiana...at home? are you just spotted an extra 10 points for being in the sec. at least lsu isn't in the top 25 anymore.
miss state's only top 25 win is against a 3 loss auburn. bama's only win against a ranked team is against miss st.

Well that's contradictory. After saying Bama "controlled" game," then praises Miss State, saying "you never felt they were out of it."
^ mandel stating the obvious and calling 'em out
also, game control is a made up espn metric. why is the committee using it? jeff long makes no sense.
bama is #1 despite beating only one ranked team? so a team who lost to ole miss, beat ark by 1 and beat an unranked team in OT is the #1 team? dat loss quality. yo wait, i just saw a clip and long said kicking game helps make bama the most complete team. hahah, that sorry ass kicker? this system is getting it more wrong then the BCS. at least in the BCS, if you were the only undefeated power 5 team, you would be ranked #1 99% of the time. add to that a defending champ w/ a heisman winner? ok. can't wait for if and when this team gets healthy. we still don't get enough credit for playing so hurt, particularly in those clemson and louisville games. this needs to change to a 6-8 team playoff. i have a feeling a couple teams are going to bet boned here.
EDIT: danny kanell is on mike&mike, pretty much killin' it. don't agree w/ a couple of his points, but he succinctly said how a 4 team PO would never have any team outside the power 5, which makes sense when you think about it, but goodbye to the boise st's of the world
