Yes, but only 11 of the 20 committee members are from the SEC.

I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!

To be realistic, NSW. I think we are going to have to accept SEC control for the time being.

Isn't that selection aided by BCS rankings? Either way, it's going to be awful to see half of the SEC involved in a playoff every year.

I don't know all the details, but I don't think there will be BCS rankings next year. I'm sure the committee will consider various polls, but I don't think they are bound to any of them.

IIRC, ESPN has been working on a quality ranking system like the RPI for college basketball as well.

If the committee isn't run by Lou Holtz then what's the point?

Lou Holtz and Mark May will hash out the playoff teams on Final Verdict.

The details haven't been settled yet but there's a lot of rumor. The BCS is certainly ending but there might be a RPI-like system that the committee will use as a guideline (just as with hoops) but it's unknown what that would be.

And yeah, they wouldn't be bound to any of it.

Storm was crazy for Utah. I saw some rotation in some of those clouds. Reminded me of storms I used to see in the Midwest. I missed the first half of the game because the power went out.

It's funny to read the Texas message boards after the game. Meltdown is an understatement. They are ranking this with their 66-3 loss to UCLA in 1997 (dubbed "Rout 66") as worst in program history.

UGH just look at this:

2013 OVERALL FBS RANKINGS

PASSING YARDS

145.0
99th Overall

RUSHING YARDS

114.0
82nd Overall

POINTS FOR

32.5
55th Overall

POINTS AGAINST

27.0
68th Overall

I know it's only week two, I'm just bummed out about this season a little already.
Things could always be worse, you could have USC's "offense". Having seen it twice now, well, I'm going to need a liver transplant at the end of the season. It's going to take copious amounts of alcohol to survive it.

Our QBs cannot throw the ball past the line of scrimmage, seriously. There have been exactly 0 plays beyond 20 yards. 0. They threw for about 50 yards on Saturday. I'm pretty sure Oregon had multiple plays longer than that. Well, the bright side is that we will be getting a new coach soon. Hell, if they manage to lose to BC and Utah State, Kiffin should be fired before October.

Le sigh.

How was your trip to Hawaii, trojanchick? I watched some of that game and could tell USC was going to have problems later on. Hawaii has been one of the worst teams in FBS the last couple years.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Utah State game is close. The Aggies have been pretty solid the last couple years and have a legit QB in Chuckie Keeton.
