I'm reminded every year of how people get so bent out of shape when the college football playoff rankings come out the first week of November. I always tell those people to come back and complain to me the 1st of December, when still nothing is decided.
So going off of this week's rankings...
- Ohio State
- Michigan - need to lose to Ohio State for PSU to even sniff a playoff.
- Louisville - gone
- Washington - still has Wazzu in Apple Cup and Pac 12 title game in which to slip up.
- Penn State
I now have to believe that the winner of the Big Ten title game will get that fourth spot. If it all falls Penn State's way, then I will wake up in my own bed on December 31st and get into my own car and drive the 15 minutes down to the Georgia Dome to see them play Alabama.
What was once just a pipe dream, is now looking more real by the day.
Like tjb noted...the fact that we're still in the conversation on November 18th is just plain unbelievable.
