    In my head--- UF
    ACC changes its rules. Now Big1.

    Should the SEC do the same?

    When you're a conference that consists of Ohio State and a bunch of also-rans, you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Would they do the same if Minnesota was 4and 0 while osu was say....8 and 1?

    Changing the rules on the fly is as week a move as can be and sets a bad precedence. So basically rules are rules.....well...not really

    The CFP is nothing but a farce if they put in a team that has played 4-5 games less than the other 3 P5 conferences.

    3 P5 conferences will play 10 reg season games with 2 teams to play 11(CC Games) add in Cincy & BYU that will play at least 10.

    OSU max will play 7 games including the B10CG. If 1 or 2 of their next games get cancelled you are looking at only 5-6 games.

    They don't deserve to get in

    And it should be noted that tOSU's biggest national cheerleader, Kirk Herbstreit, said as much during Gameday on Saturday.

    Year after year we say (rightly so) that certain teams can not (or should not) make it to the playoffs because their schedule is awful.

    But here we are this year with OSU. Same situation. It's a joke. And make no mistake, they are guaranteed in.

    Play half the games as everyone else. Back into the cfp like you planned all along. Change rules. Declare yourselves champions. All in the name of covid, the new catch all be all. Disgusting.

    While I think the conferences were correct to play as many games as they could, I think the notion that we can crown a legitimate champion this year is looking more and more silly.

    ACC and little ten champs just have to play a few cupcakes and they are in.

    If it ends up being an SEC team as national champs, id recognize them as legitimate. Not only because I’m biased, but playing an all SEC schedule is brutal.

    Here's something the media should emphasize.

    The BIG televen WASN'T GOING TO HAVE A SEASON THIS YEAR. If it weren't for the SEC/ACC/BIG12 we wouldn't have had a college football season. Now they want to play a fraction of it and still get representation in the playoffs and a cut of that money? GTFO

    The BIG needs to get whipped by an SEC team, any SEC team.

    I do believe that when we Gators play OSU in post season football that we have never lost to that team. Please make that happen again.

    I guess you missed the move where the SEC changed the rules to make head-to-head more important than winning percentage.

    I think a bunch of people need to get off their hobby high horses.

    If the SEC prevented Florida from the playoffs when it is clearly the best team in the SEC and would have otherwise qualified, we would all be furious.

    The BIG wasn't going to have a season. The SEC spearheaded the movement to play along with a couple other conferences.

    As far as changing the rules....no problem but there has to be some reason. Playing several fewer games yet making the playoffs is a joke. You probably know that.

    Also....good to see you as abrasive as ever
