As Kirby Smart said today, “We won’t be taking Texas A&M lightly. Have y’all seen who their three losses are to? They’ve lost to the number one team in the nation twice and another top 10 team. They’ve got a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and are a good football team. They are probably one of the most talented teams we’ll face this year.”

Without talking smack, I think my Tigers CAN beat Ark, A&M, and Ga. in the SEC Championship. Then, I will look forward to the playoffs. I only hope to have the opportunity to humiliate the. Buckeyes.

You don't get rewarded by the CFP for scheduling a team like Clemson. Not that we would be in the top 8 who are fighting for 4 spots, but we would be 8-2 right now without Clemson on our schedule and somewhere between 16-20 in the poll.

And don't tell me we need tough OOC opponents. Maybe in some other conferences or divisions but not the SEC West. As long as we have LSU, Bama, Auburn, and an East team like Georgia or Florida we got all the strength in schedule we need. Case in point is Bama, sitting in the 5 hole, with a **** OOC schedule.

Y'all always say that but those FCS teams kill your SOS. Several Big 12 teams with top 10 sos. Texas at 7. A&M at 59.

I’m talking CFP rankings. I don’t see them rewarding strength of schedule. It’s all about the W/L record. I’m convinced we’d dominate the LOS and best about everyone ranked 16-25.

He wasn’t talking about quality losses, but scheduling Clemson along with the rest of the schedule. But losses never bump you up in the rankings...or at least most teams.

Which in itself is ridiculous, because it’s all based on a subjective poll. That poll moves around so much, where teams are ranked high and then weeks later they aren’t even in the Top 25. You should be rewarded for playing a “valid” tough schedule. I don’t think anyone would argue that Texas A&M is a better football team than Iowa State, SMU, or even USC. The teams the Aggies list to are still Top 10 teams and very likely could have 3 of those opponents in the CFP. Not bitching about us being ranked or not, because we haven’t beaten anyone with a pulse either and with the two games we have left, probably still won’t. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is winning.....just win and the rest will come.

My point per the quote, SOS is meaningless if you're not winning ball games. The reason the Aggies didn't move into the Top 25 is because the teams they've beat have no real value due to their records.

You might want to look at the Sagarin SOS.

Auburn is not top 10.

Every coach says that about every team they're playing every week. They're good, we can't take em lightly, blah, blah, blah...

Aggies do seem to be clicking now though. Mond won't have to throw the ball, he can probably just run for 300 yards. Course JoJo is gonna throw 6 TDs so it shouldn't matter!

Did you even do your homework before discrediting App State ?

NOPE because if you did, you would realized that a little ol' 9-1 Sun Belt team has more P5 road wins than A&M. App St. beat UNC and South Carolina as the road dog. App has been legit for years (regardless of their division) and recv'd lots of national recognition including being recognized as the greatest upset in CFB history.

Those are good wins for Ap State, they play and beat teams they shouldn't, but it's hard to call the teams they beat powerhouse football teams and base a ranking off of them. They barely beat UNC 34-31, and only put up 17 on the Ragin' Cajuns,

Ap State is doing well, but to think that they would or could win consistently against decent P5 teams isn't realistic.

The CFP committee knows exactly what they are doing. It has their darling sec right where they want them. 1 loss non conference champ Bama ahead of a 1 loss soon to be conference champ Oregon or Utah so they can slide Bama into the top 4 when LSU drums Georgia. Their reasoning will be " well Bama was ahead of Oregon & Utah". Conference championships don't mean squat anymore. If this happens and they don't expand to 8 they might as well go back to the BCS computer rankings.

Both with one loss, one plays and wins all but one game in a very competitive conference and the other plays and wins all but one game in a not very good conference - mostly garbage teams. These teams are not equal. Besides, Alabama will probably beat Auburn who beat Oregon. And Alabama (even without Tua) would probably still destroy any team from the PAC.

Conference champion means something, but it means less if the team plays in a garbage conference and looses their only tough OOC game.

The 'four best teams in college football' concept is hard for some to grasp - conference affiliation doesn't and shouldn't matter.

FOUR BEST TEAMS

Pending Bama goes undefeated the rest of the way do you honestly think that Oregon and/or Utah are better teams than Bama? Serious question.

FOUR BEST TEAMS
Bad concept.

Is it always the two best teams in the superbowl? no, it's conference champions.

FTR both Oregon and Utah currently have better SOS than Bama. It's not really close.

NOPE because if you did, you would realized that a little ol' 9-1 Sun Belt team has more P5 road wins than A&M. App St. beat UNC and South Carolina as the road dog. App has been legit for years (regardless of their division) and recv'd lots of national recognition including being recognized as the greatest upset in CFB history.
Good thing App St did not play the fight'n Piggly Wiggly's. They would have hung 50 on them.

Conference champion means something, but it means less if the team plays in a garbage conference and looses their only tough OOC game.

The 'four best teams in college football' concept is hard for some to grasp - conference affiliation doesn't and shouldn't matter.

FOUR BEST TEAMS
Ahh, more opinions. Great......

No one will ever take you guys seriously as long as you CONTINUE to talk up your losses. I understand who they were to, but it's a bad look man....EVERY **** YEAR....

Beat some of those guys, and let the resume speak for itself.

As you know, since we talk about it weekly, the NFL structure is completely different with conferences feeding into brackets with wildcard games for the maybes and what ifs

CFB doesn't have that structure

The four best teams - based on the opinion of football 'experts' - regardless of conference is the structure. I'm not saying it's great, or even good, but that's what it is.

If the NCAA wanted to completely blow up CFB they could divide the 130-140 teams into 8 even conferences, each with a division of 8-9 teams, then take the 8 winners into the post season for the national championship - but I doubt that ever happens. Too much money involved in the current structure.

I don't want to see the committee reward teams like Bama for their OOC schedules. At the current state, the SEC champion will almost always get in regardless of OOC, but I think if any team wants to be seriously considered as a non conference champion, their OOC schedule should play a huge factor in that consideration. Bama's OOC resume is underwhelming, at best.

Lol at SEC honks talking about being in a good conference vs. Other teams in bad conferences, then when numbers prove otherwise they suddenly don't care about quality of opponents.

I agree. I think the year they got in without the conference championship was a mistake.
