Poll Watch

The College Football Selection Committee released their rankings again last night, and the Baylor Bears once again remained at number 7.

The Baylor Bears remained 7th in the latest College Football Playoff Rankings as the Top 7 of the rankings remained the same as they were a week ago. This was not unexpected as every team, except TCU which had a bye week, won their respective match ups this past weekend. Finishing out the new Top 10 are UCLA at 8, Georgia at 9, and Michigan State at 10.

Watching the announcement last night, there were several things that stood out. One was Minnesota jumped seven spots, including jumping over Oklahoma, from number 25 to 18. This most likely means that even if they lose to Wisconsin this week they will remain in the Top 25. Minnesota also jumped Oklahoma which moved up one spot to number 20 after running over Kansas. Both of these clearly show that the Selection Committee is using Minnesota to justify Ohio State being over the Bears. Last week the Bears had a slightly better resume, but thanks to Minnesota jumping Oklahoma that is no longer true, at least on paper. Anybody that knows college football, however, knows that the Big 10 is a weak conference. Even ESPN believes so: Conference Rankings, yet the Committee is ranking Big 10 teams over Big 12 ones. Here was my live reaction to seeing this all unfold:

Even Craig Smoak thought it was ridiculous:

Something that I didn't notice until this morning was that Kansas State also stayed put after going on the road to Morgantown and getting a win. They were also jumped by Arizona which beat a Utah team that conveniently stayed in the Top 25 this week, even at 7-4. The Bears need Kansas State to be as highly ranked as possible when they play them, but the committee is not moving them up even after they win and teams ahead of them lose.

Even after all of this I was pretty calm while watching the reveal show, then Jeff Long got on my TV screen and all Hell broke loose. Each week the CFP Rankings have been released, Jeff Long has come on and defended the Selection Committee's ranking's using a different format each time. Craig Smoak pretty much summed it up:

This week while defending Mississippi State, Long said that the Committee takes into account the CFP Ranking of the team when they are beaten. This contradicts what he said when the rankings were released after Baylor beat Oklahoma on the road, as pointed out by Jake Trotter here:

Long then went on to say once again that the teams ranked 4-7 are very close, despite the fact that he has repeatedly said that Baylor's and TCU's resumes are not comparable enough for head-to-head to come into effect. If the teams ranked 4-7 are "very close" wouldn't head-to-head matter? Evidently not. Perhaps the piece de resistance was Jeff Long claiming that Ohio State's loss to Virginia Tech was not a bad one:

This is the same Virginia Tech team that was just held to three points by Wake Forest and lost in a game that took two overtimes to be decided.

What this all means is it is now clear that Baylor will not be able to make it into the inaugural College Football Playoff, even if they win out, unless two teams not including TCU lose in front of them. The Bears should eventually jump TCU if they win both of their last two games. All the Bears can do at this point is keep winning and hope that the dice fall in their favor.

Even Craig Smoak thought it was ridiculous:

\r\n

Minn. loses to OSU by 7 and remains in same spot from previous week. Nebraska loses to Minn. by 3 and falls from #23 to unranked. Got it.

This week while defending Mississippi State, Long said that the Committee takes into account the CFP Ranking of the team when they are beaten. This contradicts what he said when the rankings were released after Baylor beat Oklahoma on the road, as pointed out by Jake Trotter here:

\r\n

Didn’t Long say Baylor had only 1 Top 25 win after it had bounced OU from ranks? Now he credits Miss St for rankings when games were played?

Perhaps the piece de resistance was Jeff Long claiming that Ohio State's loss to Virginia Tech was not a bad one:

Long said he doesn't necessarily agree that Va Tech over Ohio St was a bad loss for Buckeyes.
