not sure Miami gets in with-
Alabama/Georgia 13-0
Alabama/Georgia 12-1
Notre Dame 11-1
Oklahoma 12-1

I just don't see Miami cracking that top 4 at all. And I'd say especially if Ohio St is sitting there at 11-2 and Big Ten champions.
So if Miami is 6 now (Amway Coaches Poll) and beats ND at 3 now. Where does Miami rise? Do one loss teams TCU and OKLA and Washington rate higher than Miami? And if Miami wins out, how could Miami be anything other than a 2 or 3? The ND and Clemson games seem to be the predominate indicators. And if Miami stumbles against VA or Pitt, then they are on the bubble at best.

If Miami losses to VA or Pitt they free fall in the rankongs even if they beat ND. ND should drop like a rock too if Miami beat them and then losses to VA or Pitt. 04-cheers
If Miami stumbles to either Pitt of UVA, then will likely tumble out of the top 4 even with wins against ND and Clemson. The U has had to many years of mediocrity to get the sentiment vote. Now if they do make the top 4, they'll change some minds. Or should I say the dollar signs will be big as Miami can return to one of those marquee teams which means more eyeballs and rating which equals selection consideration. Miami is close to being there, but needs a strong finish. Losing 1 will be acceptable. Losing 2 will bring the naysayers saying the U was overrated. Either way, the U is back from a 15 year hiatus and at least in the conversation.

RE: ND Miami
IMO, Miami must win out - including Notre Dame - to make the playoffs this year. I just don't see a game they can afford to lose.

RE: ND Miami
Miami can drop Pitt or UVa, and they will get in over ND and Clemson with wins obviously. Then they need Wisconsin to lose OR the Big 12 champ to drop two games.

Miami would get in over a 12-1 TCU IMO in that scenario.

I think Miami would get in over Wisconsin unless Miami has 1 loss and Wisconsin is undefeated. Wisconsin has a terrible schedule

right. We're saying Miami beats Clemson and Notre Dame- but has lost to either Pitt or UVA.

Sorry but I'm glad as anything the committee is telling teams that it's better to play a tougher schedule with a loss than playing a cupcake soft schedule undefeated. Sorry but there is nothing about Wisconsin or Miami(up to last week) that they got screwed. Wisconsin hadn't played a single team all year long in the top 25. Miami same thing.

You can act like this is how it used to be where the -0 meant everything. Sorry but it doesn't.

Pretenders vs the Overrated.

Mark Richt’s evil goatee aside, I think he has worked very hard to distance this Miami team from ‘Da U’ of old

Richt is first class. If Miami can defeat Notre Dame, Miami has a shot at a national championship. Wouldn't it be interesting if Miami played Georgia for the championship?
