    3. Alabama
    4.Clemson
    5.Penn St
    6.Georgia

    Too bad they didn't wait until next weekend, after the LSU-Alabama game. Plus the Penn St.-Minn game.

    Eh, disagree. Their season ended when Georgia lost. Michigan was just an extra nail in the coffin.

    Clemson deserves to be angry.. but it will take care of itself. They play 3 cupcakes.

    Alabama - LSU, Ohio St.- Penn St. games will eliminate 2.

    Re: First College Football Poll tonight...

    BTW, this is what's so frustrating about college football. You have to be basically perfect to even have a shot.

    ND is 6-2 with their only losses coming on the road against ranked teams and they have zero shot. They could win their last 5 games 70-0 and they still won't be in consideration.

    Don't get me wrong- ND has underperformed. They failed their only two real tests and struggled against lesser competition in some of the wins. The Bills are in the same situation- they're 6-2, they've struggled in most of the wins, and they have an easy schedule coming up. But no one in their right mind thinks ND has any chance whatsoever at making the playoffs. Most people think the Bills have a good shot at the playoffs, even many who have been harsh on the team so far.

    CFB is the only sport where starting the season 6-2 means you're already out of it.

    I am a ND fan , but I can't argue we deserve any consideration.

    The loss to Georgia pretty much ended their chances but the loss to Michigan sure did.

    If their only loss had been Georgia and Georgia was undefeated, there may have been a very slim chance if all else fell their way.

    They do need to expand the play-offs to 8 teams by adding another round.

    That won't help ND anytime soon unless they recruit much much better.

    I think it's so much harder for ND to recruit than it used to be. The prestige factor is still there but a huge draw was that they were the only team guaranteed to be on in every living room in America every week. But now there's 8 ESPN channels and Fox Sports 1 and NBC Sports and CBS Sports and networks for all the major conferences, plus the Game Day plan and streaming. Kids can get the national media coverage at any remotely well known school. They don't have to play at ND to be on TV every week and have scouts take notice. Plus, while I'm sure ND isn't 100% by the book, they enforce the academic standards more than the Georgia's and Alabama's and Clemson's and USC's and Miami's and OSU's of the world.

    LSU has defeated 4 teams in the top 10. #1 for sure.

    So Alabama drops behind Georgia for the key #4 spot. Yet Georgia just lost a key WR and 3 starting OL to injuries. Ranking may be temporary.

    What is interesting the Pac 12 having Oregon and Utah right behind Alabama. If they meet in the Conference championship game with 1 loss each, they could jump up. Alabama and their cupcake schedule looks to be in trouble. They need help.

    Big 12 ( Oklahoma, Baylor etc. ) looks to be on the outside looking in.
