    Ole Miss and Oregon ahead of ND is a joke.

    ND took the defending champs down to the wire on the road.
    Ole Miss looked like garbage and lost against a mediocre LSU
    Oregon lost at home to Arizona.

    Whatever, first ranking doesn't matter

    Notre Dame really doesn't have an impressive win yet. Stanford is a nice win, just barely, but it doesn't compare to beating Alabama or Michigan St. If you're strictly comparing losses, Notre Dame has the "best" loss. But that's not the whole picture.

    Exactly. Not a bad loss but they are hurt by Michigan being a dumpster fire and Stanford being just ok so far.

    Re: College Football playoff rankings are out

    I thought the rankings were about right. If Notre Dame wins out they will be in the playoff. They just don't have really good wins yet. Lots of games left and these standings will change a lot. They will definitely change after this weekend. Auburn plays Ole Miss, so one of those two will drop down and basically be out of it.
    I was glad to see Ole Miss ranked ahead of Alabama. I was glad they took head to head games seriously.

    Until the traditional top teams in the power conferences start playing each other on a regular basis in season, it is always going to be a crap shoot and perception is going to be worth more than reality.

    Miss St certainly has a better loss but at this point they don't have any good wins. It would be close if they both win out, but I agree enough else will happen that I'm not sure it will matter.

    With 4 teams in the mix, one thing has been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt, is that the SEC dominating the rankings is a self fulfilling prophecy, they are the best conference, so the best teams in the conference play each other, the winner is now the best team in the country. Miss. St. was "the best team in the country," now the team that beat them is the best team in the country.

    The politics of the process will be the only thing preventing it, I'm sure but even the thought by some that Miss St is still top 4 says it all...and the ongoing over ranking of Auburn.

    MSU lost by 5 in Bryant-Denny stadium to a top 5 team and now they are pretenders and the SEC is over rated?

    I'm not sure there is a big ten team that would escape the SEC west with fewer than 3 losses.
