SMU removed from the CFP at #20 to NR.

AppState enters at #25.


We were #25. We were replaced by App state who lost at home to Georgia southern.... Boise st lost to 5-4 BYU.

The CFP is being told to even out the G5 because the AAC is making the cartel look bad.


App State also has two (bad) P5 wins. I think we’re the better team but we barely survived a tight game against a conference foe with no conference wins. Probably a coin flip between us right now. Bet we re-enter before the Navy game. Bigger scandal is how low they rank good one loss G5 teams like Memphis and Cincinnati.


That’s part of the reason they dropped us out. Impossible to justify Memphis higher than 15 when they have multiple ranked wins and only a loss to bowl-eligible Temple.

For this list, anything > #10 is insignificant. Those are the only ones that will shuffle in the next few weeks as the SEC and Big 10 figures out who will represent.

I'm just annoyed that we likely won't be "ranked" against Navy... lol

Seriously, the fact App State passed us with a loss is just ridiculous. What a joke.

The bigger joke is that UT passed us and that K State stayed in.

This completely + leaving BSU in the top 25 is a joke and app state lost so they should be irrelevant. This is a cap on the # of AAC teams allowed.

You guys are discounting App State...a team that went on the road and beat a South Carolina team that had beaten one of the best teams in the country (Georgia)

The committee is treating the loss to South Carolina as a fluke against georgia. They should carry it down consistently.

It's ridiculous we were dropped out at 9-1 with the only loss vs. another ranked team by 6 points on the road. Period.

If you wanna get real paranoid this morning:
-Texas is ranked again, which helps LSU
-Navy moved up the week it plays Notre Dame
-App State is ranked after beating SC, who beat Georgia

I bet you anything since we aren't playing this week; they're just putting us off to the side or they forgot about us like Thad put on Twitter.

Games that I'm going to watch and have a strong opinion on highest to lowest:

Texas vs Iowa State (-7): GO CYCLONES! GRILL SOME F-ING STEAKS!
Navy vs Notre Dame (-7): Shell the IRA!
Memphis (-10) vs Houston: A cat will die and I hope it's blue!
App St (-16) vs Georgia St: Go pointless Georgia; knock off a made up state!
West Virginia vs K-state (-14): Let's go moonshiners!
New Mexico vs Boise St (-28): I know you wont but take down the overrated less of a horse broncos!
Kansas vs Ok St (-17.5); Let's go Les! Destroy Pervy Pete

I am trying to justify it but I cannot. Maybe it is simply who you beat as App St has 2 “p5” wins.

25.App-St
-Beat 1 team with a winning record...Louisiana
- Two “p5” wins over 4-5 UNC and 4-6 S.Carolina
-Lost to 4-5 GA Southern [terrible loss]

NR.SMU
-Beat 2 teams with a winning record...A-State and Temple
-One “p5” win over 4-5 TCU
-Lost to Memphis 48-54

23.Navy mystifies me too.
-Beat 2 teams with winning records...Air Force and Tulane
-No “p5” win
-Lost to Memphis 23-35

17.Cincy
-Beat 3 teams with a winning record...Miami OH, Marshall and UCF
-One “p5” win over 4-5 UCLA
-Got throttled by Ohio State 0-42

18.Memphis
-Beat 4 teams with a winning record...Southern, Navy, Tulane and SMU
-One “p5” win over 4-5 Ole Miss
-Lost to Temple 28-30

Based on this Memphis and Cincy should be swapped.

To add to that and what makes my blood boil:

Boise State:
Best win is 5-5 Florida St (arguably the worst P5 conference)
Had to have an OT to beat 6-3 Wyoming (Tulsa beat Wyoming)

Loss:
LOST TO FREAKING 5-4 UNRANKED BYU (who lost to S Florida)

This has been my frustration with leaving them in the top 25 as long as they did. AP should have knocked them of completely in their poll and maybe the morons at CFB Playoff Committee wouldn't have put them in.

Imagine being Baylor.

They are ranked BEHIND two 2 loss teams in Auburn and Florida. Both of those teams have 1 win over a ranked opponent. Baylor is undefeated and has 2 wins against ranked opponents.

That is a joke.
