    It still amazes me that who gets into the playoffs are still decided by polls, and guys sitting in cigar smoke filled rooms. Also the fact that not everyone plays the same amount of games which hurts some teams, and helps others.

    With so many teams and conferences of varying strength, it's hard to have a system that is totally objective.

    If you go by some computer generated formula, somebody creates that formula.

    When the playoffs are expanded, it will help- as most of the very best teams will make the playoffs, but there will always be debate about the one or two teams that just missed out.

    This way is better than the old polls, where sometimes there were two seperate #1's.

    Well, my domers pulled it out.

    Big games, tonight: Mich v TCU and GA vs Ohio St.

    My only hope at winning my bowl pool is for USC and Penn St to win. Even then, I think I can just place second.

    (I went with So. Carolina over ND!)

    Georgia v TCU for all the marbles.

    Who-da-thunk it?

    I'm predicting Georgia squeeks it out.

    1. Georgia
    2. TCU
    3. Michigan
    4. Alabama
    5. Ohio St
    6. Tennessee
    7. USC
    8. Penn St
    9. Florida St
    10. Washington
    11. Oregon
    12. Notre Dame
    13. Utah
    14. Clemson
    15. Oregon St./LSU
