For the past few weeks of doing so, the College Football Playoff hunt has been on who has the realism the easiest and hardest way to get in.

But that is enough.

No more rudeness about it. No more throwing a cookie for an unbeaten UTSA team that doesn’t have a chance of getting into the top four – but is still very much alive for the new six year race.

There are 11 teams left in the College Football Playoff hunt, here is their ranking of their chances and what needs to happen to get in.

Before that, it was all about the cold harsh reality of what each team had to do. We now rank them based on whether or not we think it could happen.

#1 will go in, #11 isn’t, and everything in between falls into place, starting with…

11. Wake Forest Demon Deacons (9-1)

It’s a great story, but there are a lot of huge walls that Wake Forest has to scale to get in, starting first once in a position to have the discussion.

Is Wake Forest good enough to get to Clemson on the road? Could. Is he good enough to have a renewed and improved Boston College squad that has improved since the inception of QB Phil Jurkovec’s comeback? Could.

Is it a good idea to get to Clemson and Boston College on the road, then take down – most likely – Pete at the ACC? It’s almost certainly going to slip in one of those three games, but even if it doesn’t, there’s still plenty of traffic in the clicking order.

What is the only signature that wins? It would be the ACC Championship if that happened, but there really isn’t one. North Carolina? Eh, okay.

This is how the College Football Playoff Committee works, by the way.

He will look at Wake Forest’s loss to North Carolina, and point out that Notre Dame beat North Carolina 11-1, and there is a tough ceiling to overcome.

However, go 12-1, win your Power Five conference title, and good things are likely to happen.

10. Sooners Oklahoma (9-1).

This is the “We Don’t Really Believe In You Anymore” rating.

Oklahoma is still somewhat in control of its own destiny.

If you beat Iowa State, win Oklahoma State, beat Oklahoma State again or beat Baylor in the Big 12, yes. likely to be in.

I’m talking about the football clincher. Don’t believe anything else you hear.

Oklahoma, 12-1 champion in the Big 12, gets one loss at Wake Forest, 13-0 Cincinnati – ok, let’s just call who – which Toss up depending on how the Bearcats play the rest of the way – and 11-1 Notre Dame. Power Five Conference tournaments are important to this group.

However, if it drops to one place, he won’t beat the losing Pac-12 Champion Oregon, or the Big Ten champion by one loss. However, if Oklahoma wins and Alabama suffers a second loss along the way…in.

After not pulling off a really solid win in our first nine games and then failing miserably in our first massive Test against the great Baylor team, yes, we really don’t believe in you anymore, Oklahoma.

Win, though, and that might not matter.

9 – Michigan State Spartans (9-1)

Back in the old days of BCS, 2008 was one of the biggest massive events of the season because it was a giant mess in two locations, not four. Part of the big laugh was with the old Big 12 South.

Oklahoma and Texas were monsters, and Texas Tech emerged and became a factor.

The Red Raiders shocked the Texans in a thriller – the Longhorns’ only loss in the regular season – and the Texans beat Oklahoma earlier. Texas, OW, and Texas Tech finished in a three-way tie for the division, but Oklahoma got the call to the Big 12 Championship, in part because it eliminated Texas Tech 65-21 late in the year.

Fast forward to 2021. The states of Ohio and Michigan aren’t exactly the same kind of strongman as 2008’s Oklahoma and Texas, but they are close. Michigan seems to be Texas Tech in this scenario.

Now, for these companies to succeed, Michigan would have to defeat Ohio State, and Michigan State – which beat Michigan in a thriller – already has a loss for Purdue so there can’t be a triple-tie, but basically, that’s a painfully long way of saying That Michigan State is probably the No. 3 team in a division of three big teams.

There’s a chance of squeezing it out against shakier Ohio State than it looks this week, but then the Spartans will have to beat Penn State, and potentially beat Wisconsin in the Big Ten.

On the plus side, Michigan controls its own destiny. Beat the Buckeyes, beat the Nittany Lions, beat – probably – the Badgers, and in, no questions asked, no doubt in the drama. in a.

It probably won’t.
