yet looking at the conference record they were still behind them
Yes that is what I keep saying.
Yes the Conference race stops. and the start of the discussion was conference. not national, not post bowls, Conference.
Yes USC was picked to go to the Rose Bowl as the next highest ranked team. Who happened to be tied for 3rd in the conference. Your statement that they don't take the team with the 3rd best record or however you made it was false because they did that because of the other criteria. but it does not change the fact that that is what they did.
as for the rest of it one lump Yes that all happened. But what does that have to do with the Conference? That is what the discussion was. the Conference. Pac 12. not National. Conference
I didn't forget it at all. but prior to the bowl games no one was talking about USC being in the playoff over them. and even after USC beat them I still never hear anyone say USC should have been in because everyone still remembered the first game with Alabama
but still higher IN THE CONFERENCE.
Who, other than you gives a flying fuck? lol. USC ended up #3 in the country. Thats why they play bowl games.
Rose bowl champs and #3 in the country.
Good for them. They can look at the trophy knowing they got beat by USC not only head to head at home but in the final poll. lol
Wow, you all are still going on about this. Must be the off season.
Huskies did in fact win the Pac. They had the best season in the conference. There is no doubt or debate about that.
Does it bother me that USC ended the season ranked higher? No, of course not. It is based off the entire imbalance of the post season in college football. We have no idea what the final score would have been had UW played Penn State. We can assume Penn State is not nearly as tough of an out as Bama is and we don't have to guess what USC might have done against them since we saw that first hand earlier that season. Sure, USC improved after that game, but enough to actually pull off the upset and beat them in the playoffs? I'm sure even most USC fans wouldn't presume to make that case.
So hang onto that season end ranking as meaning something more if you all need to. Doesn't take a thing away from winning the division, winning the conference, and making the playoffs as being a totally fucking outstanding season for UW nation.
Ok, you all can go back to your regularly scheduled round robin bitching.
Well just how we saw what happened when Alabama played USC, we also saw what happened when USC played Washington. No need to guess what team would beat what team.
Uh, nope. It's very clear you don't. It is also clear that you know what nutswinging is because you keep doing it.
Then you forgot to pay your cable and internet bills because there were actually people in the media making a case for USC to be in the playoff. They based it on USC's being one of the 2 hottest teams in the country and having beat both teams that were playing in the PACCCG. The narrative was that USC was the one team in the country that no one not named Alabama wanted to play. I even posted in this very thread at the time that USC had no business being involved in the discussion because, despite how well they were playing, they didn't win the PAC.
So, not only do you not know what deflection is, you're also wrong about no one talking about USC being in the playoff.
You should probably quit while you're behind.
Nah. USC would have given them a much better game, but I don't see USC beating them. Would USC have played them better than Washington? Maybe. The head to head between Washington and USC suggests yes. But, that's a transitive property which rarely works. My guess is USC's fate would have been similar to UW's.
Both teams had excellent seasons and have nothing to complain about, imo.
Personally, I just find it hilarious that after all of the shit Ducks fans piled on your Huskies, they now want to swing from your dicks.
So a UW vs USC Pac-12 Championship Game?
I'll go ahead and say it, one of these teams will defeat the North.
Its not about who cares or doesn't. the topic of discussion was conference.
but we also saw Washington give a slightly better game to Alabama.
we also saw Utah beat USC but lose to Washington and lose to Oregon
The transitive property does not work in college football.
Great. USC didnt have the best conference record. Yet won the Rose Bowl and ended up being #3 in the country. USC fans can live with that. Case closed.
Transitive property? USC played Washington at home and beat them . How fucking clueless are you. No one is saying USC would beat Bama if they played again. Dude you need a new spin. This isnt working for you.
Still not sure what that has to do with THE CONFERENCE
Arizona beat Oregon regular season but Oregon dismantled them in the Conference Championship game. USC beat Washington once doesn't mean it would happen again
They already did it. No need to think about it. Bama beat USC. Its done. Just like USC beat Washington . Its done. They had their chance.
