CFU wouldn't have been on the outside looking in the last two years if they had the same November schedule that Minnesota has.


    Ah, so you have the same agenda as the media which is to discredit the system and create controversy, not pick the best teams.
    One thing to start in September at the bottom and move up and another starting in November.....I just don't think it will happen....

    As to point 2...yeah....
    If you can't win the conference then you don't belong....

    There is no way an undefeated P5 champion does not get in the playoffs. Maybe some committee members would want to exclude, but as a collective there's no way.

    We'll most likely never know ...I just don't think a team can go from 17 to 4 in a month.

    Especially Minnesota which would have wins over two teams likely to finish in the top 10. I'm not so sure about Baylor, which seems to go out of it's way the schedule the weakest non-conference schedule it can.

    What conspiracy? I've actually seen a writer with a vote in the AP poll admit to it, and I've seen plenty other national talking heads without a vote salivate for it on national TV.

    I've that sort of movement on a number of occasions but all you have to do is look at it logically to see what I'm talking about. If the Golphers finish 13-0, which would be the 4th team ranked ahead of them besides Alabama, Clemson and LSU?

    In the Chicago Tribune today ..I suppose it is possible...

    The Gophers will surge if they beat Penn State on Saturday at home. They can keep climbing by winning at No. 18 Iowa and at home against Wisconsin. Then they would take on Ohio State or Penn State for the Big Ten title.

    A lot has to happen for Minnesota to surge 13 spots. Ohio State made the greatest climb in CFP history, getting in at No. 4 after starting at No. 16 in 2014.

    But even more stunning things would have to transpire for the Gophers, at 13-0, to be excluded.
