Ahhh, when facts and reason get too much for Bama fan, out come the insults. Perfect.
Right and we've never seen this topic before?
Yes, but 5 ACC teams play ND yearly
Yeah ummm sooooo, not really the best argument in this troll.
And this means, what? It's okay to have an 8 game schedule if you add ND?
AND at least 5 teams in your conference do it - that's legit.
Novel thread topic. Should be a sticky with planes taking off from treadmills and beans in chili.
No it shouldn't
Poor analogy. Big Ten teams only play one legit team OOC. Clemson played Auburn and South Carolina this year. So if they had an extra conference game they would likely not schedule Auburn and just keep their rivalry game with South Carolina.
The Big Ten's problem isn't a 9th conference game it's the fact that no one in the entire conference has a decent OOC win. Your candidates to dispute me would be Maryland over Texas, Penn State over Pitt, Wisconsin over BYU, or Michigan over Florida. Texas is the only bowl team in that group and I think they're only a 6 or 7 win team. They had chances for OOC wins with Sparty over ND or OSU over Oklahoma and both teams lost by double digits at home.
Sorry to pile on but let's also remember that the Big Ten is 0-2 in their last two playoff appearances having been outscored 69-0. The Big Ten is a paper champion but a large revenue generator because of all the state-funded diploma mills they have with immense fanbases that travel and run TV ratings. Those factors have little to do with competition.
If Army beats Navy today, they'll be 9-3 and a win that's on par with Bama's Fresno State. You would have:
OHIO STATE's 8+ win opponents....
12-1 Oklahoma - Loss
11-1 Penn St
9-3 Michigan St
ALABAMA's 8+ win opponents...
11-2 Auburn - Loss
10-3 Fresno St
8-4 Miss St
Of course this is assuming Ohio State, Auburn, Oklahoma and Fresno St all win today. Ohio State would definitely get the edge in scheduling as well as the conference championship edge.
Not this again.
More dumbassedness from you. You really shoulda looked at Clemson’s OOC and SOS before you posted this drivel. Just makes you look like a bigger dumbass.
Just want to mention that Army-Navy is NEXT weekend.
Good analysis. The Big 10 needs to perform better on a national stage but the 9 game conf schedule will preclude many teams from scheduling a formidable OOC game. Especially when you have 5 away conf games every other year.
Good call. So, Army will be 8-3 when the voting occurs.
Still gives Ohio State another win over a team with a winning record though which is clearly something the committee has prioritized. Ohio State will have 5 wins (#4 Wisky, #9 PSU, #16 MSU, Army and UM). Alabama will have 4 (#19 LSU, #23 MSU, #25 Fresno, TAMU).
End of discussion right here. Applause!
Incorrect. We have years of scheduling data from when the Big Ten played an 8 game schedule and very few opted to play a second legitimate OOC game. This is a product of the economics of college football. Most programs need the home dates to make the finances work.
Or their 9th game was a 3-9 UNC. The Citadel and UNC would have about the same chance of beating Clemson, slim to none. DOESNT make a difference at all.
No. Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.
Failed he has.
Yea Clemson only played # 2 Auburn. And The Citadel scored more points than the last BIG team we played.
Back to the bench chief.
Alabama is 5-1 over teams with a winning record. Ohio St even with a win will be just 5-2. Not much of a difference there. They also beat 2 6-6 teams which isn't special but that is 8 opponents that at least finished .500. tOSU has an overall better schedule but they also are sitting with 2 losses. I don't get why people are comparing these 2 teams though. These 2 teams don't play each other to decide anything right now. Neither Alabama nor tOSU can blame the other if they don't make it in. Their own losses would have doomed them.
People are only looking at the schedule this year. You never know who is going to be good.
Clemson had no business losing to Syracuse but they did.
Teams get tired, injured or kids don't show up, all kinds of things and lose games they shouldn't.
Just stop crying when the SEC gets 2 teams in because you want to play 9 game conference schedules.
I know it’s a tough pill to swallow but your schedule was weak. You played a FCS team in week 11 in November. You lost to Auburn and you’re on the outside looking in. It sucks but stop rationalizing.
New poster here, long time lurker. Downplaying an extra conference game here as a non factor is laughable.
You’re comparing 2 & 3 star recruits (your Iowas, Purdues, Minn, Rutgers) versus 0 &1 star recruits (your Citadels, Chatnoogas, Smokey Mountain Techs, Central Everglades States). No comparison, especially when your comparing coaching resumes as well.
Let’s not forget that these cupcakes that you schedule are always home games. A ninth conference game won’t be. Thanks in advance for you’re warm welcomes!
Yeah right long time lurker And new poster, you are full of shit. You MAY have a point for the teams that played 3/4 cupcakes with an 8 game conf schedule. but you are sucking ass making a blanket statement for all when many scheduled much tougher OCC games for their 9th game and had another P5 OOC for their 10th games than anything you can find in that 9 game conf schedule.
Indiana > Southwest Paducah State
Illinois > Bill Dance School of Angling
Rutgers > NASCAR Pitcrew U.
#6 SOS, played two P5 ranked teams OOC one of them currently ranked #2, you are a dumbass.
Now go change back to your other SN so you can support yourself.
I came with facts. You came with facts and insults. I came with more facts. You came with more facts and more insults. It’s called debating, message board tough person. I’ll blame it on upbringing. Pretend your safe space is Eastern Trailer Park Community College. You may win that debate!
They would be favored over most teams on the bottom of most conferences playing 9 games.
You may win the chance to lick my nuts as well, you seem the type.
And you came with no facts you posted your smart ass little Rutgers > NASCAR Pit Crew U crap.
Perhaps. Point is that those kids of the Power 5 bottom feeding programs were awarded D1 scholarships with D1 coaching staffs, D1 facilities and D1 strength training programs.
It was an analogy to the argument. Name brand versus non name brand.
My apologies. I didn’t know that you were a Jeff Gordon fan.
They do play 9. I can't believe how stupid some of you people are. How hard is it to look at a schedule? I'm talking about the ACC, the SEC doesn't but the ACC does.
When Notre Dame joined the ACC the deal was they would play 5/9 somehow putting them outside the conference, but STILL there's not a single person AWRE that the ACC play 9 games, IOC? It's like talking to a baby. Yes, the ACC plays a full slate of games, the SEC doesn't, but the Big Ten, Pac-12, Big XII, all DO! Why when some idiot spews nonsense, nobody catches it?
ACC did that to maximize their proceeds. It effectively adds 1/9 to their take, yield.
Notre Dame is the only team that doesn't play a full slate, is that why you are confused? Makes me mad, anyone should know that, but nobody does? Yes the ACC does, in fact, play 9 games, EVERY year, IOC. People shouldn't be allowed to lie. I consider it a lie, because it's easily refuted.
Just thought it was an interesting time to bump this thread.
It's like deja vu all over again.
I was halfway through the thread and saw something about Ohio State and Oklahoma and thought wtf are they talking about last year for. Then I saw the date...
You just made the list Winger...
It seems your topic of “NINE” is all your brain can handle. Aren’t there more conferences that don’t play nine than there are that play nine? Who determines which is better? History is showing you that your system is not making champions. Give it up. They are more valid arguments to spend time on.
We all like the way “We” do things more than the way other people do things. This topic is really old and is only widely supported by you and yours.
If we all came and played two games against your conference, your conference record would look like shit.
