#DearAndy: Quality wins, quality losses, and quality hushpuppies
Wednesday November 11th, 2015

In this week’s #DearAndy, Andy Staples answers your questions from Twitter on…

• Why does the College Football Playoff selection committee hate the Big 12? In the second edition of this year's playoff rankings, released Tuesday, the highest-ranked team from the conference was Baylor, at No. 6.

• Does Oklahoma State need "body clock" issues and a quality loss to be considered for the playoff? How is a win over Temple considered more significant than a win over TCU? The Cowboys were slotted at No. 8 in the rankings this week even though they're undefeated and crushed No. 15 TCU on Saturday.

• Of the teams the selection committee didn't include in the top 10 of this week's rankings, which has the best chance to make the playoff? Several squads could make strong cases if they win out.

• What's more underrated: North Carolina football or hushpuppies? Both are really underrated, so this is a difficult question. The Tar Heels were slotted at No. 23 in this week's rankings even though they've won eight consecutive games.
