College Football Playoff rankings reaction: How are early wins, losses valued? | http://AL.com  http://ow.ly/ETLfY

Quote
This week, Jeff Long raised the issue of how wins against highly ranked teams earlier in the season, like Mississippi State's victories over Texas A&M and LSU in late September and early October, are viewed now that those opponents are no longer ranked.

Jon Solomon @JonSolomonCBS

Long said he doesn't necessarily agree that Va Tech over Ohio St was a bad loss for Buckeyes.

We're all dissecting the committee's rankings, but what we're forgetting is that there are always upsets these last 2 weeks that clear it up

The SEC really needs 1 or 2 teams in the playoffs.

It means a big paycheck for all the teams in the conference.

Each program gets over $20 million per year for simply being in the SEC due to TV contracts.  They are going to be ok.

If the Hogs dont make it, i dont care if any of the others make it

Freaky Friday flips conference races, possible spots in CFP committee bowl games http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/writer/jerry-palm/24847417/freaky-friday-flips-conference-races

Quote
Arizona will now face Oregon for the Pac-12 title. The Wildcats handed the Ducks their only loss earlier in the season. If Oregon wins this time, it's possible no other Pac-12 team will play in a College Football Playoff Selection Committee game.

In the SEC, Missouri came from behind to beat Arkansas and win the SEC East for the second year in a row. The Tigers will enter next week's SEC championship game without a win over a team in the committee's top 25. Because of that, there isn't a scenario that puts the Tigers into the playoff even with a win next week. However, if enough other things happen (Auburn and Ole Miss winning this week for starters), Missouri winning the SEC could take the league out of the playoff entirely...

SEC will make sure Mo does not win if that's the case. However I don't think Bama will need any help against Mo.

5 Saturday games to watch that have College Football Playoff implications | http://ow.ly/Ft2y2

Quote
1. Iowa State at TCU, 11 a.m., ABC (espn3)
This game is interesting mostly in an "anything can happen" sort of way, as the Horned Frogs ought to CRUSH the 2-9 Cyclones. If so, TCU would almost certainly hang onto its No. 3 spot in the rankings, despite the now-infamous head-to-head loss to Baylor on Oct. 11.

Should TCU lose or even win in less-than-impressive fashion, the Horned Frogs could be leapt...

2. Alabama vs. Missouri, 3 p.m., CBS (CBS Sports live stream)

The Crimson Tide fan base and the SEC office alike are rooting for an Alabama blowout here...

3. Kansas State at Baylor, 6:45 p.m., ESPN (Watch ESPN)

The other half of the Big 12 cluster...

4. Florida State vs. Georgia Tech, 7 p.m., ABC (espn3)

The weekly "this is the game Florida State finally loses" watch is now up to 12

5. Ohio State vs. Wisconsin, 7:15 p.m., Fox (Fox Sports Go)...

The committee has spoken. How it got to the top 4  http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/writer/jerry-palm/24872694/the-college-football-playoff-selection-committee-has-spoken

Quote
"With the championship game, Ohio State demonstrated that they were a total team. They did overcome replacing two quarterbacks, and that's a tremendous statement about the quality of their team. With a conference championship in the Big Ten, with a win over the Western Division champion, Wisconsin, it was decisive for Ohio State to move into that fourth spot," explained committee chair and Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long.

In regards to Baylor and TCU, which respectively finished at No. 5 and No. 6 in the final rankings, Long said the Big 12 gave the committee both teams as co-champions, a fact that was weighed and evaluated.

In the end though, it was Ohio State that earned itself the final spot over both teams. Long said Alabama, Oregon and Florida State were all “clear-cut” at 1-3, with Ohio State easily grabbing the last spot.

Ultimately, Baylor over TCU was also decided by one factor. “It came down, with TCU and Baylor, that debate of strength of schedule versus head-to-head. In this case, head-to-head was the deciding factor between Baylor and TCU.”

No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Ohio State will meet in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday, Jan. 1 at 8:30 p.m. Earlier that day at 5 p.m., No. 2 Oregon and No. 3 Florida State will square off in the Rose Bowl...

Statement from Bill Hancock on Oliver Luck: http://www.collegefootballplayoff.com/press-releases/bill-hancock-statement-on-oliver-luck

Quote
“Oliver has brought a great perspective to the selection committee, and we will miss him.  He was a valued member whose views were wise and always thoughtful.  We wish him well and know that he will be successful in his new position.  We’re glad he will remain in the college athletics family. We will name a replacement by this spring; there’s no rush now, of course.  It terms of process, the Big 12 conference will nominate a replacement, and the management committee will review the nomination and make the final decision.”

West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck is joining the NCAA as the executive vice president of regulatory affairs and will report directly to NCAA president Mark Emmert, it was announced Wednesday.

"This is a time of fundamental change in intercollegiate athletics that will set the foundation for the years ahead," Luck, 54, said in a statement. "The challenges both internal and external to the NCAA present a unique opportunity to help shape the landscape for hundreds of thousands of young men and women. It is an honor to join President Emmert, the NCAA staff, and our member institutions in this journey."

Florida State hasn’t sold out its allotment of tickets for the Rose Bowl

Quote
“In a regular Rose Bowl we’re a contractual sellout,” said Rose Bowl chief administrative officer Kevin Ash told Mandel. “It’s the first time we’ve ever had to create a public sale, to go out and market tickets and sell tickets in the public sector … whereas the typical Rose Bowl, our partners took up two-thirds of the stadium.”

Because of the new regulations in the College Football Playoff era, where schools demanded bowls drop their ticket guarantees from 17,500 to 12,500 after schools routinely took a bath in unsold tickets, the Rose Bowl has 40,000 tickets to sell on the open market this year – a stark contrast to a year ago when Michigan State brought 60,000 fans on its own to Pasadena. Relatedly, tickets are going for below face value on TipIQ.com.

If the Rose Bowl is on your bucket list, you may never have a better opportunity. Well, at least until the next time the semifinals come to Pasadena.

This is the other side of why the college playoff has four rather than eight teams.

Will the committee be pressured to pick the schools that "travel well" when it's a close call?

Notre Dame beat an 8-4 LSU team by three. By next season media will act like they beat the Patriots by 35. Just wait.

Honestly, I think the playoff committee may need to call an emergency meeting and get Notre Dame in this year. Outrage they were left out.

The committee did a good job in hindsight.  You cannot leave out an undefeated, returning champion in Florida State and count on them to lose to Ole Miss.
