    Here's hoping Clemson throttles Bammer Jammer.

    Clemson better look out. A mad Alabama team that feels disrespected and out for revenge will be coming.

    Probably a fair top 4, though I do not agree with 2 teams from the same conference being in there. I long for the day when there’s a format that settles it on the field and not in a committee.

    And another year where the B1G doesn't score a single point in the playoffs.

    I wonder what will happen to Pepcid, Zantac, and Prilosec stock prices at the opening bell Monday morning since he won't be facing any "gastric issues" from playing Saban now.

    True, but if two teams had to get in from the same conference I would prefer it be from the sec.

    Urban will blame the cameraman again for Barrett not playing well enough to beat Wisconsin by 50 and make a big enough statement to get in.

    So glad the Turbin got what he deserved. Blown out by Iowa in November didn't get swept under the rug, thank goodness.

    Win or lose, Clemson is not afraid of Bama.

    Why? Unless we have a round robin format like the PAC 12 used to do, you can’t settle it on the field. Even this year - Georgia got destroyed by Auburn, on the field, then got another shot at them when they were injured. Don’t you think Bama would’ve liked to get revenge on an injured Auburn team too?

    Edit: All to say that because there is no good play in system at the conference level, having two teams from the same conference is reasonable and should be expected. It’s completely plausible that the two of the four best teams can come from the same conference, especially with the way that the SEC dominates recruiting.

    Actually heard they invited Urban.
    But he said he'd have to ask his wife and daughters to see if they would let him go.
    He would have to miss a couple of ping pong matches.
