    It is possible. I am 100% in.

    As a "homer", believe CLEMSON will win out. At the start of the season did not see CLEMSON or Georgia in the mix.

    A one loss Georgia can get in. CLEMSON must win all games now.

    My current picks of

    Clemson
    Oklahoma
    Alabama
    Washington

    ------look less good now.

    I have no idea what to change them to at this point.
    -- Clemson has the best chance to come out of the ACC, but I am "HOMER".
    -- Oklahoma has a hard road and the entire conference could be left out.
    -- Alabama looks to be in, but could loose to Auburn and Georgia.
    -- Washington (see comments on Oklahoma).

    At this point it seems a Big Ten will certainly be in, but which one?
    What about Notre Dame?

    I am going to stand pat as I don't know what changes to make.

    I feel good about 3 of my 4 picks. Clemson, Penn St, and Alabama. But I have lost faith in Washington. The problem is I have no clue who to replace them with. Georgia, TCU, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Miami, or Notre Dame. What a crazy season! As of now, I am going to lay low. Changes are sure to come though.

    Points are awarded 1-4 depending on how many you pick right in no order. If you and Joe pick 3 right, but Joe picks an hour before you, he wins. Time counts as there are only 4 points available.

    6- ND

    Thanks for the reminder Toad. I would have surely forgotten. I will be in Chapel Hill this weekend to see the UNC beat down by Miami. The beer is cold and the food is great on Franklin Street. So don’t feel bad for me because I will surely have a good time! I guess I will have to make my final picks now.

    As I stated before. I feel good about three of my picks but have lost hope in Washington making the final four. I really like Georgia but I do not think they will let 2 schools from the SEC in. I do not think Miami will beat Clemson. I could be wrong though. I do think the NCAA will do everything in their power to make sure Notre Dame is in. I do not think it will happen though. I do not think Wisconsin makes it. That leaves TCU. I think whoever wins the Penn St/Ohio State game is in. I will probably stick with Penn State even though that game could go either way. My Final picks are

    Alabama
    Clemson
    Penn State
    TCU

    IF OSU beats Penn, I have at least a chance (2 pts and win any other ties of 2 pts. 'cause earliest post..). If OSU loses this game, then no chance for me...boo-hoo (I don't get back my 'signed U. S. Grant pic' from AO which is a good thing 'cause I want AO to treasure that prize forever ). As stated before I'm standing pat the whole season..

    Nail biter.....but my season is still ALIVE! Even despite a real crappy call reversal that should have stood and was a TD for Penn instead of an interception! Go Bucks!

    Looking over some of yall as to picking.


    OHS came back and won with one point over Penn. That is good for Clemson as we don't like undefeated teams, but the committee does.
    Clemson is still in if they win out.

    TCU lost, but they are not out. They will decide in a couple weeks on the field @Oklahoma who is also still in.

    Penn lost and is most likely out. As we know from last year, winning out will not be enough if OHS does not loose. Two teams from the Big ten does not seem likely, but things could change. Could a one point loss to a top team keep you out?

    Florida State is out.

    Washington is looking good.

    USC is out.

    Georgia and Alabama will show up in the "4" this Tuesday. Can both get in? My vote if they play as expected is 100%, but I don't get to vote.

    Everyone here has variations of those teams.

    Miami and VT are not yet out. Either team winning out is in.
    Wisconsin is in if they win out and would be a "2" seed.
    ND is in if they win out. Very unexpected, but deserving.

    That about covers it unless things fall apart and a 2 loss team makes it in.

    My prediction for the fist tally on Tuesday is:
    1- Alabama
    2- Georgia
    3-
    4-
    Take your pick - of the above. Wisconsin is undefeated but weak schedule.
    At this point I think the rest after Alabama and Georgia are interchangeable.
    What say you? Post thoughts for all to read and add to the fun for all. Don't drag down the party sitting in the corner being silent.

    Looks like I might be done. Penn St blew a huge lead and TCU never showed up. I still have faith in Clemson. And there is no doubt that Alabama will be there. I have very little chance of three teams being in. I have a decent chance of 2 teams being in. The football gods have spoken!
