    The difference however, Okie State's record didn't give them a good argument to play in the Sugar Bowl.

    Pretty sure tf12 is snickering about the Buff's losing the 'eye test' of the committee to SC, and subsequently the Rose Bowl bid.

    The Buff's argument:
    • They were ranked #8 at the end of the regular season going into the PAC12 Championship. (SC was #11)
    • They won the PAC12 South.
    • They had the better Overall record.
    • They had a better Conference record. (Even after they lost the Conference Championship)
    • Their only losses, save #11 @USC, were to #5 @Michigan & #4 Washington in the PAC CCG.
    So basically Colorado ended up losing to No. 3, No. 4 & No. 10 (Final Results) before playing Okie State in the Alamo Bowl.

    So yeah, they wanted to be in the Rose Bowl, not the Alamo Bowl.

    Does the final ranking matter much more than the preseason ones or any other? They are always highly subjective and always will be.

    UW at 4? Doesn't matter that much to me. They were in the national discussion and had their chance at the playoffs. That's all I care about. Who is above or below them on the final polls doesn't matter all that much. All top 10 teams have that to use as recruiting fodder and their actual slot doesn't change things that much in that context. It also matters somewhat toward what those always accurate preseason polls for next year will start out as and a slot or two here and there won't change those that much either.

    Right now it's all about the recruiting classes and how your team finishes up there. Far more important than any type of ranking or poll.

    And then the loooooooooong ass off season with not much more than a brief awakening for spring ball until it all ramps up again.

    Yes, because football teams are entirely stagnant throughout a season. Try and keep up.

    Don't get the head scratch...

    No one better than SC fan should understand this.

    The Trojans went from an embarrassing Neutral field loss to open their season to an exciting Rose Bowl win & No. 3 Ranking to close it.

    Everyone wants some sort of measuring stick on how the team did that year. It's imperfect so we argue about whos better Oklahoma or USC . But we argue because they are ranked close to each other . It is subjective, but at the end of the season things have played themselves out. We know what teams are the best and this year clearly what team is the best, what teams are really good , what teams are just good and what teams suck. The order we can yap about but no one is asking if Houston is good or if Penn state sucks. You can be sure your Husky recruiters are saying to prospects that they are a top five team.

    I said it was fodder for recruiting already. And they would still be saying they finished #4 in the CFP polls and played in the playoffs whether or not they dropped down to 10th. Their recruiting impact was assured no matter what that poll said.

    I just don't get worked up over polls one way or another and never have.

    Playoffs , final polls , they are all measuring sticks . Unless your Clemson, your team is in some sort of order based on perception and finish. You can chose to ignore them but the final one most people do use for lots or things. I think knowing your team was a playoff or top ten team makes fan bases content. Being unranked makes fan bases want change. It's part of being fans. The pre season and most of the season rankings are pretty useless. They shouldn't rank teams till game five or so.

    But we are not talking about USC, we were talking about Oklahoma in the previous post.

    Actually we are because you're arguing about whether OU would beat USC at this point.
