Gil doesn't hold anything back here. Quite the scathing review of the committee.
And Jeff Long, the chairman and spokesman for the College Football Playoff committee, will stand before a microphone at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine and declare that fairness has been served.
Just like last year, when we first saw what the CFP committee was all about.
Only human, as it turned out. Men and women with reputable titles, but at the end of the day laden with all of the biases and predispositions of the poll voters they were designed to replace.
Basically what we've been saying for a few days now.
If OU is selected, Oklahoma State (10-2, 7-2) will earn the Big 12’s Sugar Bowl berth by virtue of its 49-29 win over TCU. The Frogs (10-2, 7-2) are likely to get the Alamo Bowl nod over Baylor (9-3, 6-3), which lost Saturday to Texas and will likely go to the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, Fla.
Nice quote from the Alamo Bowl CEO.
And as the Pac-12 championship game played out, Valero Alamo Bowl chief executive officer Derrick Fox was watching the results closely to determine whether Stanford, Oregon or USC, with outside shots for Utah and Washington State would fill that side of the equation.
“We have a number of good teams in our mix,” Fox said. “That’s what makes this exciting.”
Although Fox wasn’t ready to commit to either TCU or Baylor late Saturday, it would seem the Horned Frogs would trump the Bears for several reasons.
Vladimir Brodziansky is a revelation.
Sophomore Vladimir Brodziansky, who matched a career high with 19 points, scored eight during TCU’s opening 13-2 run over the first 4 1/2 minutes. With a decided size advantage inside, TCU continually got the ball inside of Colgate’s defense.
TCU dominated the paint against a smaller opponent. Now they need to figure out a way to stay competitive down low against teams with size.
The Horned Frogs, now 4-3 overall, could do no wrong Saturday, shooting a blistering 50.8 percent from the field, including 61.5 percent in the second half alone. TCU, who never trailed in the contest, did most of its damage down low, securing a 42-14 advantage inside the paint, while holding a 40-23 rebounding edge.
The Frogs are really, really good at home.
TCU (6-2) won its 11th consecutive game at home, tying for the third longest streak in school history and the longest since a streak that spanned the 2008-09 through 2010-11 seasons. The Frogs are 20-3 at home in the past two seasons.
The duo looks unstoppable.
Medley's three to open the second quarter gave her 250 made three-point field goals for her career, becoming one of just four active players nationally to reach the mark. She finished with 20 points and hit 6-of-8 three-point field goals in the game.
Moore's career best 16 points came as she knocked down 4-of-7 shots from the field and a career best 8-of-9 from the free throw line. She also added two blocks in 20 minutes of action.
