Ohio State forced to cancel Illinois game; ineligible for CFP?


Recommended Posts

Yes for now, however if the average is below 6 in the whole conference than they can. However, how can anyone say that the they deserve to be in the playoff at this point? ND loses against Clemson, but goes 11-1 against at best 6-0 cmon.

 

Never mind you are right they will luckily play 6 games, not 5. Still 7 wins against marginal teams does not deserve to be in imho.

Just wait for big ten to change policy now that Ohio St impacted

 

This!! However, whether B10 changes policy or not is irrelevant. CFP doesn't have a minimum number of games requirement. While no level-headed, rational person would put a team that plays 6 or 5 games into the playoff, no one has ever used those terms to describe members of the CFP committee.

Herbie just said Ohio State WILL miss the Michigan State game as well. At minimum.

 

OSU is ineligible for the Big14 Championship

 

Not technically true yet. If enough teams miss games that the overall average of games played for the entire conference is below 6, they would be eligible again.

So if all the teams miss the bare minimum...They could try and put. 5-0 team in the conference championship. Haha. Sorry, but that would be a joke.

I saw something that said Big 10 needs to cancel 12 of 14 games for Ohio St to make Conf Championship game if they have one more game cancelled

This has been exactly my point regarding the asterisk. If a team like OSU was ruled ineligible from the playoffs (they wont), then I dont know how anyone can take this year's playoffs seriously.

 

Again, unless something has changed since midnight-ish this morning, last night after the Oregon/OSU game Heather Dinich reported that the CFP committee has not put in place a minimum games played data point. She did note that OSU would be disqualified from the B1GCG unless there are enough future cancelations/postponements to drop the conference average games played. I don't recall the exact numbers though, I was falling asleep as I was watching it.

Fair point, but I also don't think a team, any team, should be in the playoffs oly playing 5-6 games.

 

ND will have played twice as many games. Clearly that matters.

 

So I think we just have to accept this year is what it is.

 

Besides, I don't see Ohio St beating Clemson, ND or Alabama anyway, so the whole thing it a moot point.
