Boise is #22

Yep... We might have been in trouble had we not played Cincy. What we don’t want to do at this point is split games with Cincy and watch Boise jump us.

Boise hasn’t played anybody. They beat Florida St but they are a bad team this year and other than them Boise beat a decent Air Force. That’s it

Looking at that list (all of us sub-20) turns my stomach. Something has to be done. Law suit.... something.

SMU:
37-30 @ Ark St
49-27 North Texas
47-17 Texas State
41-38 @ TCU, yeah good win, but has that rivalry factor
48-21 @ South Florida
43-37 3OT Tulsa, should have lost 2 or 3 times on missed FGs
45-21 Temple, "ok" win, maybe call it "good"
34-31 @ Houston
then the big L

Boise could say SMU hasn't played anybody except a down TCU and a decent Temple.

Two observations:
1. The P5 bias is undeniable. Only Oklahoma State breaks up the bottom 6 and they shouldn't even be ranked with 3 losses.
2. The top is set up to exclude one of the SEC and B10 schools with the upcoming head to heads. That will likely lead to either Georgia or Oregon slipping through.

I wonder if we drop after we beat up on BYE.

Someone explain to me how Utah is 8th and we are 21st...

They have played 0 teams in the top 25 of the initial poll...

We are 2-0 against teams in the top 25 of the poll...

Both teams have 1 bad loss...

I didn't understand Wiscon. being ranked so highly. They already have two loses including one to a bad Illinois team. Regardless who they have beat that is 2 loses. Shouldn't be higher than 20 IMO

RE: Memphis #21 in Initial CFP Poll
Well at least Inconsistent logic in polling is still consistent.
How a bunch of 2 loss teams are higher than 1 loss teams is just stupid.

It needs to be like MLB, NBA, MLS, NHL standings. Create a wildcard if you have to...
The American Athletic Conference is currently the 4th best conference in the country.
Yet the PAC12 and ACC team leapfrog over teams with bigger wins and better rankings.

"The ACC does not rise to the standard of competition" among college football teams in the CFP.
https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/cle...is-a-mess/


Utah's SOS Rank is #121.

Why are 3 loss Power 5 teams not ranked higher than 2 loss Power 5 teams? Because that would "look" bad. But alas, it's all about what it "looks" like in a poll versus wins/losses.

This is exactly why I thought they were ranked too high at 15 or whatever it was before we played them.

Or Wake Forest who has played NOBODY. Even Minn has played NOBODY but gets the auto rank for being in the B1G. Neither of these schools should be ranked above any of the AAC schools ranked.

And BTW, Memphis should be above Cincy simply because we have beat 2 ranked schools & have a middle SEC win.
