    If Michigan can beat OSU, we'lljump them, and our win vs Michigan will look even better. Clemson doesn't play a hard schedule. We could pass them based on schedule strength, but if they have us behind them now, it might be hard to pass them.

    Top 10 should be:
    Bama
    Ohio State
    Clemson
    Notre Dame
    LSU
    Texas
    UCF
    Oregon
    Florida
    Oklahoma
    As it turned out Michigan jumped higher than I had them, and we both left Georgia out of our top 10.

    Actual:
    1. ALA
    2. OSU
    3. CLEM
    4, ND
    5. LSU
    6. MICH
    7. TEX
    8. GA
    9. OK
    10 UCF
    11. FLA
    12. ORE
    13. W VA

    I honestly don’t know if any team can beat Bama. They have a ridiculous running game and defense as always, but now they actually have an elite Qb too. That is one hell of a team

    If Florida makes the SEC title game, I think that will be one interesting matchup. Georgia will play them tough as well. I don't think they lose either game, however. A healthy Trevor Lawrence and Clemson's defense could be fun to watch, as would Notre Dame or Michigan. Michigan, though, would need to win at Ohio State to even have a chance at the CFP, however, and I still don't trust Harbaugh in big games. They definitely have the defense to at least slow down Alabama.

    You're probably right, but they will play at LSU this year. That might be the best hope.

    That might be our best chance. I thought N.D. could do it in 2012 , but it was a rude awakening.

    Yes, it was.

    Right now, we need to concentrate on winning out. Any loss and we're out of the top 4 for good, despite a pretty steady tough schedule.

    It's nice to finally have a QB who can throw, so with a 2-pronged offense, anything can happen.

    This year's patsies:

    Louisville
    Arkansas St.
    Louisiana
    The Citadel

    I guess you can't blame them: they have to play 8 conference games. 4 of those 8 are currently ranked between 13 and 24. They certainly do not have a patsy schedule, but the 4 games they choose are almost always very weak teams.

    Schedules are made years ahead of time. Both Navy & WF have histories of being respectable opponents.

    Yes, Ball State & Vandy are patsies.

    Clemson didn't exactly have a great non-conference schedule either. Ohio State's win against TCU is looking worse and worse by the week

    Clemson's schedule is a joke. They almost lost to Syracuse.

    I want to say Syracuse is good, since they beat the team I work for the week before that by 30, but yeah, it's Syracuse.

    Syracuse is good this year. Stick to dancing to Tessie.

    I shouldn't have said anything. We play them mid November.

    I'll add them to the list of patsies ND plays.
