    No offense LK, but what exactly has Louisville football done?

    They lost 5 games LY, they lost 4 games in 2014.

    The best they can say is they lost a close game to Clemson.

    That's it.

    Oh, don't get me wrong I would love to see Louisville get in, but I'm just not sure it's going to happen.

    I can tell you graduating from TX , Strong has put out as many pros as anyone while at Louisville. Not the most fertile recruiting ground.
    Now you may be witnessing the most freakish athlete to ever get behind center so enjoy. Looks better than Vick did.

    If Washington loses one game, they are out. If they win out they are in and there is no need for a committee, it would be Washington, Alabama, Clemson and Michigan/Ohio State winner. Pretty clear cut.

    Now, if Washington loses a game, Louisville would still not be guaranteed a spot, it would be between them and Michigan/Ohio State loser (assuming neither of those teams lose a game before that matchup). That would put UM/OSU loser in same boat as Louisville, second in own division locked out of conference championship game.

    On second thought, only Louisville obstacle would be Michigan if only loss is Ohio State. If Michigan wins, then you'd have to assume Louisville gets in over two-loss Ohio State.

    Na, neither of those teams are Playoff factors unless Florida somehow wins SEC Championship.

    I think he's saying if FSU loses again, it would mean UL has no good wins

    Essentially for UL to get to the playoff, Washington has to lose once and Michigan/OSU has to finish with 2 losses

    Fivethirtyeight only gives Washington a 33% chance of running the table.. I think they do, but models don't agree.

    Louisville is a solid program but not a perennial National Title Contender. The ACC Atlantic is not an easy division. Two years from now they open with Alabama. They're basically Virginia Tech with Michael Vick. They have a two year window right now

    as for getting in this year...I stand by what I've said in other threads with them needing Clemson to win the ACC and a team like Wisconsin, Tennessee/UF, Washington State or Utah to win their conference. Washington losing alone may not cut it if Michigan has one close loss to Ohio State. So a Michigan BIG title and a Washington loss might do it

    I agree.. for the basketball tournament, sure, there are 64.. 65.. 68 or something like that teams that make it so why not. It's about half the field. Giving out 5 automatic bids to the five major conference champions, so 63% of the field for an 8 team playoff, is way too large of a portion.

    Hell, the MWC routinely performs at or better than the level of the bottom 1 or 2 major 5 conferences. If they aren't going to get an auto bid then no one should. Even this year, per the RPI, Conference USA 2.0 (aka the AAC) is decent with 5 teams in the top 39 while the Big XII only has 4.

    Best 8 teams make it, I'd prefer they use a computer model (like the *gasp* BCS) since these old fuks can't be trusted to put out a legit playoff ranking (TAMU at #4, really?)
