  • How can you really tell how good teams are just with conference play? Oregon has looked rather ordinary in the Pac 12 but...surprise, surprise they beat Ohio State in Columbus....

    12 will be fine...and the Power 5 winners should be in.

      The fact that there were no non-conference data points in 2020 is why last year doesn't count in my book, and COVID-19 protocols which had some teams playing as few as 6 games only exacerbated the problem.

      You may be okay with rewarding a 4-loss unranked conference champion with a playoff bid but I'm not.

      • This thinking is very common with many sports writers and why including Power 5 champs is necessary...Oregon beats Ohio State in Columbus doesn't really count because a priori Oregon isn't very good and Ohio State is awesome. Why even play...winning in Columbus and dominating the game was just hype...

        4 loss team wouldn't bother me. They might actually win it all. It is just a game in the end.

            An irresistible force (Ohio State's offense) meets an immovable object (Georgia's defense).

              Wait a minute! Even after getting embarrassed by Utah for their second loss of the season you think Oregon should still be in the playoffs because of what they did in Columbus? Should the win in Columbus be a get-out-of-jail-free free card for multiple subsequent losses? 🤔

                I claim no such thing.. You obviously don't get my point. So I'll leave it at that.

                Anyways it is going to 12..like it or not.

                  Read my mind, yes yes and yes. Hope nothing screws that up.

                    My Gen X cynicism has me terrified of that...or is it just good sense? Georgia looks frightening.

                        They looked ordinary because they are ordinary.
                        Hopefully the Cougs will beat UW, and the Beavers will drown the Ducks, just to prove the point.

                        Oh yes, and WSU goes the Pac12 playoff to beat Utah.

                          Correction for you. WSU has 5 losses.

                              Poor Jazz.
                              Obviously you failed Duckologic 101
