Do you have a problem with the College Football Playoff selection committee ranking Clemson No. 1? Will Baylor make the playoff if it goes undefeated? Andy Staples answers these questions and more.
• How can the College Football Playoff selection committee be so blinded? Clearly there is an agenda. I don’t think there’s an agenda, but one team’s ranking is befuddling.
• Do you agree with the committee that Clemson should be ranked No. 1? The Tigers have played well this season—and they notched an impressive win over Notre Dame last month—but they face a crucial game this weekend against Florida State.
• What are the odds that Baylor makes the playoff if it goes undefeated? While the Bears have destroyed most of their opponents so far, they haven’t played a tough schedule. Baylor has some important games in the coming weeks.
• Considering what happened last year, why would anyone read into the rankings that come out prior to the final set? We need something to talk about before then, don’t we? The rankings are going to change as contenders play one another in the season’s final month.
