    This is very, very interesting to me. All analysts have Alabama and LSU in the college football playoff one week before those two teams face each other. Thus, each believes that no matter what the outcome, the loser will still deserve to be in the CFP. I do believe that national and reputable (maybe?) authorities like this start to set a narrative that can guide the CFP committee. In other words, if all of the major pundits start to predict and opine that both LSU and Alabama will deserve to be in the CFP, then the committee will start to believe it because others believe it. A good thing to have on our side.

    Confirmation Bias is a hell of a drug. Literally what is wrong with our entire media system now. Say something wrong, NOT saying this is wrong, enough times and people start to believe. LOL

    The Reggie Bush pick is most intriguing. Unless he thinks Clemson has a surprise loss coming, he's got 2, 1-loss teams going in ahead of an undefeated defending champion.

    Exactly. Deserved or not, it helps to have the pundits pushing this issue and basically speaking it into existence.

    Is “intriguing” the right word, or are you just in a generous mood? Lol

    haha. "Intriguing" because it could be downright stupid, or do we give him credit for enlightened thinking (last year doesn't matter, not impressed with 12-0 if you haven't beaten anyone)?
