"In the previous three seasons, only five of the 12 teams ranked in the committee's initial top four went on to reach the playoff." - per something I read somewhere.
My arse is itchy.
Here's the little secret!
The playoff committee and all of the coaches want Penn State in the top 10 and to go to a major bowl!
Penn State is now the biggest draw in college football ratings!
Every coach wants to play them in a bowl because the entire nation loves to watch Penn State and Franklin CHOKE!
Way to make Penn State famous Franklin!
Nittany in Gator country
Hey McSorley, I didn't see you showing off on the field hitting home runs against Ohio State!
I guess you know now after the humiliating USC choke, pulling that crap on a real power football team will get you hurt!
