No more so than I can rationalize Cincinnati at 7.  

I mean cincy has multiple top 25 wins and has a top defense but I suppose it’s an impossible position to debate.  Everyone should be rooting for cincy and BYU at this point. Unfortunately I don’t see BYU going higher and cincy only going up one spot on their own without people ahead of them losing.

Sorry Cougs but we suck this year so we won't be adding anything to your SOS.  You guys really ought to do everything you can to schedule UW even if it means potentially eating $300k and playing in Seattle.

Except, as was pointed out on Sunday, Washington isn't actually free to play this week. It was made official during the CFP show that ASU-Utah has been cancelled. While Utah-Washington has not yet been announced, there is little question they are in the process on finalizing the details on that game. Washington's "offer" to BYU was never sincere.

Why would I root for a conference that believes themselves to be superior than the teams here?  Nah, phuck that.  I hope Cincy faceplants.  Cincy's "ranked" wins are vs a 7-2 Army team who's best win is against ULM and 7-2 SMU who's best win is against 5-2 Memphis (who hasn't beaten anybody either).   I'm not saying Cincinnati isn't good.  I'm just saying they aren't top 10 good.

Woosh - I agree that Cincy is good. But do you think they’re this good??

How is that cutting my nose off to spite my face?  The AAC has made it clear they don't believe they are equal to the MWC and that we aren't in the same boat.  Why would I cheer them?

+++++ Cincinnati, +++++ the AAC and +++++ the trans fat worshipping culture of cities they play in.

I look forward to the day when they do an automatic bid for conference champions like in basketball.

I'd be happy if they'd expand the playoffs to 8 teams. And I think they will...someday.

There's somewhat of a path for Cincy looking at this. You need Bama to beat Florida (probable), Texas A&M to +++++ up (50/50), and Notre Dame to beat Clemson (unlikely but possible)

How is Georgia top 10? Why the hell is Iowa ranked when they've lost 40% of their games and their wins are a combined 3-11?

No rules.  Just eyeballs, hunches, and PR.

Iowa's not even a blue blood though, which makes it weirder. If they were gonna slot in a P5 team it should be someone like Washington
