    Really,

    Win your division if your so good, win your conference if your so good. Then we can talk.

    Bottom line, they lost when it mattered.
    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    Apparently not.

    Apparently if you're a one loss team, without even winning your conference (or division) you get in over a two loss conference champion.

    Happened last year, and now again this year.

    Just eliminate conference championships from the criteria

    Didn't agree with it last year either.

    Alabama will end this season 0-2 against teams that can actually play college football.

    Last year was worse.

    They selected Ohio State over Penn State, even though Penn State beat Ohio State.

    I wonder if Clemson will do to Alabama, what they did to Ohio State last year (beat them 31-0)......

    I certainly hope so....then the committee might get a clue.

    If you don't win your conference, you shouldn't play for a championship - Nick Saban 2007

    They shouldn't matter more than quality of play and competition.

    Talk is all you get to do if you're a Gator fan this time of year.

    There's no shame in losing to the team that beat the other number one team at full strength. There's little pride found in defeating a broken version of that team.

    They might end up with another loss. Clemson is a really special team. All they can ask for is the chance to compete. Florida used to know how to spell that word.

    All evidence to the contrary.

    This isn't about the Gators you dolt.

    Plain and simple, you guys couldn't win your own division, much less a championship...Alabama doesn't deserve it this year.

    Things that don't matter:
    1)Conference Championships
    2) Strength of Schedule
    3) Wins over top 10 teams

    Things that do matter:
    1) Victories over FCS Schools
    2) Conference Affiliation
