I don't have a problem with his reasoning. Unless Bama loses, no one will overtake them for #1 and the next prime position is either 2 or 3, doesn't matter the order. Keep winning and The Tigers will end up 3 or better.

Until OSU loses again (and they will), it is hard to argue that OU had a very impressive win. I also think OU will lose a game. Baker is a head case, that usually costs you somewhere along the line.

We need to just keep winning.

If we make it through September unscathed we should and will likely be #2. Yes OU would have a better singular win, but look at their schedule for the rest of the month. Beating Louisville and VT on the road coupled with the Auburn win at home would give us the best September resume in the country hands down.

I like Herbie, but his whole premise is based on the Myth that OSU was the number 2 team to start with. He either has to pump up OU or admit his Buckeyes are no where near as good as they were hyped to be.

Rankings are meaningless right now. You know what they say: Remember November. Clemson just has to keep winning.

Only 2 games to judge teams by. You may not like certain teams getting the ranking they started with, like OSU at #2, but it should come through in the end. The more losses each team gets lowers the perceived starting rankings. If OSU loses 1-3 more games, beating them regardless of venue or number of points will be of a lesser value.

I'll wait until playoff rankings to get too up or down. Ohio St has been overrated for the last couple years. Good win for Oklahoma, they needed it.

Win and we're in.

I took these tweets to mean the girl was questioning us being in the top 4, not OU being ahead of us.

I don't have a problem with OK jumping us. As long as we keep winning we will be ok. Same goes for OK. I think OSU is going to be exposed more as their season moves along.

What I have a problem with is Herbie's shirt is too tight on his widening neck. That thing looks like it fit about 25 lbs ago. He needs a better wardrobe coordinator.

It's annoyingly amusing that Ohio State and OU are both given the benefit of the doubt ahead of Clemson despite us crushing OSU 9 months ago, crushing OU every time we play them, and despite us being the NATIONAL CHAMPS with 2 consecutive trips to the big game to their zero. This narrative is getting ridiculous.

I really don't care if we are 2 or 3. If things stay as they are, we are in the playoffs playing #2. If we move up to #2, then we play #3... Doesn't really matter for a neutral site game.
