2004 is the last year the AP Poll mattered. From then on,it wasn't even part of the old BCS Sytem

Think of the positive about the AP poll...They feel like TL 16 is the 4th best team in the country.

I don't understand why people are still freaking out about the AP. Win out, were in. An undefeated, ACC champion, is not missing the playoffs.

As it stands now:

Bama wins out? They're in
LSU wins out? They're in
Ohio State wins out? They're in
Oklahoma wins out? They're in
Clemson wins out? They're in

At least one of those teams will lose, and most likely 2 or even 3 of them will. Just as long as its not us, we're in.

What if LSU loses to Bama by a touchdown or less in a game of the century hype, which the media will do, and does not lose after that? Do you think it is a guarantee Clemson gets in with that scenario?

Yes because one of those other teams is losing.. There's no way we're gonna have 4 undefeated teams. But in the extremely rare chance we do, they'll have to leave the one loss team out. Even if it is a one loss LSU.

I realize we're dealing with hypotheticals here, and none of the scenarios we are currently looking at will come to fruition (because they never do).

The worst thing that can happen would be for two teams not named Clemson to be undefeated when the CCGs are done.

An undefeated $EC champion, fuhget about it.
An undefeated lil11 champion, they're higher too.
An undefeated Pac 12... nevermind
An undefeated big 12 champ, they're higher as well

Worst case- If Clemson wins out, they are the 4th seed. The carnage and attrition of the remaining conferences will move Clemson up in the CFP rankings at season's end.

Clemson only has to make sure they don't let Clemson beat them each week. Like a sieve, everything else will trickle out. As we do EVERY YEAR on this board, we are worrying about things that have not yet come to pass. The difference this year is that we are doing it before the first CFP ranking has even come out.

I beg you, my friends: sit back and relax. The only game that matters is the next one our Tigers play.
