    Man...this year just got worse. Auburn has to play Wisconsin for the 3rd time in 11 years? Boring matchup. That's disappointing.

    However....Clutchfans Bowl Pick'em, anybody?

    You should go ahead and pencil in Alabama and Oregon for that last game. :)

    Florida state is going to beat Oregon.
    They are coming in with a chip on their shoulder plus winston is the better qb.

    Playoff committee is dumb for putting in a Ohio State team in that isnt at full strength... I think we are seeing a precedent, you have to be in the top 6 and be able to travel well to get in the playoff.

    I should have known they were not going to put a team like Baylor or TCU over Ohio State

    All of this acrimony sounds a whole lot like the BCS situation, LOL.

    ESPN has 37/38 bowls. CBS has the Sun Bowl.

    I didn't notice their complete domination until last year, where 4 or 5 games were on other networks.

    I believe this game will prove you wrong on both counts.

    Despite the off the field stuff, Winston is no doubt a better QB than Mariota.

    I look forward to see how it all plays out in the NFL. It will depend a lot on which teams they go to and how much support they have around them at the beginning.

    how many nfl scouts you think will be at that rose bowl game lol

    btw i think giving fsu that 3rd seed will ignite the noles, they will feel disrespected by the media, the last time the noles faced a team that was ranked higher than them they crushed clemson 51-14, i know its not the same team but winston has this thing where he thinks no qb is better than him.. he has that edge since high school where he won mvp of the elite 11.. almost has a peyton manning type of competitiveness when he is locked in

    If they didn't destroy Wisconsin and/or their QB looked terrible vs Wisconsin I'm pretty confident they wouldn't have put Ohio State there.

    I am taking Ohio State over Alabama in a shocker.

    I think Oregon and FSU will be a track meet, but the Ducks prevail

    Oregon is too fast for Ohio State.

    That is largely my fantasy. What will really happen? Alabama

    Ohio State is happy to be there, Oregon and Alabama are not surprised by their seeding, leaving Florida State the most pissed off team on the 4.

    Let's also look at the experience factor here, Winston has played in the national championship game and won it against an Auburn team last year who's offense was insane.

    None of the other quarterbacks have that experience.
