Agreed, Herman introduced a real run game. Combine that with a scrambling QB named Ward, that will not slide, but will spin for an extra three yards, and I see a new big school coach in the making. UH is a stepping stone to the big money. Briles, Sumlin. I guess Texas will take Herman from us on his way up. SIL got the opportunity to ride to Tulsa on a private flight with the UH Dean and others to the Tulsa game. Time for UH to pull out the check book. They built the stadium, third ward is getting refaced with yuppie condos, time to step up to the next level and keep some local talent in H town.

4 teams make it to the playoff

ACC has clemson and florida state undefeated and no one else with a shot
Big10 has michigan state, iowa and ohio state undefeated with no one else with a shot 
Big12 has OSU, TCU, Baylor undefeated and OU looking in with 1 loss
SEC has LSU undefeated and A&M, Alabama, and florida looking in with 1 loss
Pac12 has Utah undefeated with stanford looking in with 1 loss
Notre Dame has 1 loss and is looking in
Several mid majors are looking in if they go undefeated and 2 power 5 conferences have 2 loss champs

Like last year we are going to have teams left out that were worthy.
Take the 5 champions and 3 at-large teams. 
Win your conference as a power 5 team and you are in. Period. After that you rely on ratings and power rankings and public perception to get one of the 3 at-large bids. Don't get one of them you can complain but you could have won your conference and gotten an automatic bid. WIn and you earn a spot. Otherwise you are begging for spot based on being 2nd best in your conference.
Tired of college football being a beauty pageant top to bottom. Win and you are in and themedia gets the at-large picks to toss around and get ratigns on

Thoughts and prayers going out to all those at the Oklahoma State game after the tragedy at the parade.  Must be so hard for players and fans to be at a football game, knowing that 3 people lost their lives outside the stadium just a few hours earlier.  May they all find peace.

Is there an app available to block Beth Mowins voice from ruining a football broadcast? I suffered through her crap with softball, and now I have to listen to her f up college football as well?

I asked the very same question to my Mom in the Astro game 1 vs. Yankees.  Troy Aikman and Joe Buck make me want to puke when they do NFL games but Joe Buck is not his daddy and listening to him suckling NYY scrotum is a bunch over the top.  Now back to football

Bama won, but they should not have been allowed in.  The CFP sent a message that says winning your conference is inconsequential.  In fact, finishing in 3rd place in your conference is A-OK, as long as you have a name-brand whiner-baby for a coach.

The CFP rendered itself useless this season.  I didn't watch any of the games, and won't going forward if it happens again.

IMO the CFP sent the message that they wanted the four best teams and that is what the fans saw. PERIOD. If one is a leader and has the ability to take the best talent, regardless of race, color, creed, etc., then that is what consummates winning. Your post echos the forgone era of 'one has to select this person of race, color and on and on. BS... I will pick the very best talent available and no one nor governmental agency is going to tell me I have to select again, due to not meeting certain "goals". Some will and do, but I do not succumb to meeting the forgone rules of the game.

The 'they should or should not have been selected' will continue - many feel they should or should not have been. These are opinions PERIOD.

to mikec: I rec'd your reply to my post of this date on my smartphone, but I cannot find it here. Can you please direct me to it? Being BAMA had absolutely zilch to do with my reply... be very assured by that. Oh, "high importance" does not constitute best choice.
