Wow, they didn't do the Big 12 any favors. I'm quite literally shocked that they put the blue blood ou below Utah. Shocked I tell you. Not that I mind so much ou (or BU) missing the playoffs.

ACC (if Clermson), Big10 and SEC champs pretty much all guaranteed a spot. The last spot down to Pac 12, Big 12 or yet another SEC or Big10 team. I wouldn't be surprise to see both the Pac 12 and Big 12 get shut out. Then again, they can reshuffle rankings like a deck of cards form week to week based on whatever criteria they are using that week. So basically this means absolutely nothing. ;)

Meh. After they beat Baylor they'll shoot up. (My blood still boils every time I see where Baylor's ranking and record are...)

Since returning to a conference championship game, I have wondered if anyone (including OU) can beat the 2nd best team in the conference twice in the same season. The Big XII is the only conference where the two top teams play one another in the league championship.

Here are the scenarios I see possibly happening:
1. OU loses another conference game and K-State finds a way to win out. OU is eliminated from the conference championship.

2. OU beats Baylor during the regular season, but loses in the Big XII championship. They are eliminated from the playoffs.

Either way, the Sooners have an uphill battle. If they can accomplish this, they did not back in. It was well deserved (can't believe I just said that).

UT fans must be losing their minds. Unranked with 3 losses, two of which are top 10 teams. And they beat OSU who is ranked with 3 losses.

Don't understand the logic but it is funny!

To be fair, any of the conferences have the potential for the top 2 teams to play each other. The Big 12 is the only one where that's guaranteed.

Listening to a good Dan Patrick monologue right now on how CFB just needs to move to 60 teams & legitimize its' season by eliminating all of the crap games. He's pointing out Clemson & Bama's SOS (#64 & #59 right now) & how we all just assume how good certain teams are.

As for expansion, I think it'll happen in the next few years, especially if the right teams get left out (the B1G, specifically). Harbaugh's got an interesting take on expanding it to 11. Yes, 11.

30 of the 62 coaches (Power 5) they talked to support expansion, btw. It's coming.
