Call me crazy... but Iowa has a path to the college football playoff-

Iowa beats Michigan
Bama loses to Georgia in SEC champ game
Cincy loses to Houston in whatever conference they are in
A 2 loss Big 12 champ emerges

1) Georgia
2) Notre Dame
3) B10 Champ
4) B12/P12 Champ
And in this crazy scenario we would draw Notre Dame, who would be beatable.

Then we would get Georgia.

Oh well!

they would still put in OSU or a 2 loss Alabama over iowa.
I think you are right but I could see Georgia crushing bama by 30 to rule that out. Although if iowa shocks the world with a solid win, how do you justify a two loss non division champ over the team that actually win their conference? Ya. Long as hell shot but hey. We can dream.

IMO, there ain't no path coming from the 15-16th spot. Iowa doesn't have the track record nationally, at least referring to challenging for national championships.

I sure wish Auburn could have hung on yesterday. I’m tired of seeing Alabama in the CFP.

But Iowa in the CFP isn’t realistic.

So when Iowa beats Michigan, will the BIG not get a team in the playoff? Is the BIG conference going to let that happen. Wink Wink.
And, some are forgetting Barta is the chair. If there is a crack in the door, we very well could get in.

I just think it's going to be a mess this year. You could have 4 2 loss conference champs staring at Cincy and Notre Dame and that 4th spot. Moral of the whole story is a 4 team bracket is just ridiculous.

2 Loss Champs
Oregon
Wake Forest
Iowa
Baylor

2 Loss 'in the hunt'
Michigan
Ohio State
Oklahoma
Oklahoma State
Alabama
